How To Treat Blackheads

Treating blackhead with conventional treatments of pore strips, scrubs and facials will not work, except to temporarily extract the contents. Blackheads are caused by a build-up of sebum (oil) in the pore’s skin pores and blockage with exfoliated dead skin cells. Being open to the air, the sebum and clogged material oxidise and turns dark. Hence the term blackhead.

Salicylic Acid Exfoliates The Pore

BHA (beta hydroxy acid) or Salicylic Acid is oil-soluble, so it will penetrate the oil in the oil gland and exfoliate the contents and pore lining.

Salicylic acid products need to be a concentration of 1-2% in ph approximately 3.

We sell an excellent Salicylic acid gel: Cost $42 for 118ml. This can be applied once or twice daily and progressively exfoliate the surface and skin pore. It is safe to use long term as part of a skin routine.

We offer you a free assessment with our Doctors, Nurses, and therapists to discuss your concerns and treatment options.

Hi Khaleel, the best treatment for blackheads is a combination of microdermabrasion and salicylic acid. We have traditionally used a gel form of the salicylic acid however we have just starting a new toner solution that contains the salicylic acid and it appears to penetrate and more effective for many people. The best thing is to come in and see us. We do free assessments and there is no obligation with this. So call us on 33505447 to book a free consultation at the outset. regards Dr Jo
