Blackhead Extraction

Blackheads also known as comedones which are follicles filled with excess oil, debris and dead skin cells which oxidise, giving them a black or dark appearance. Although anyone can suffer from blackheads, they appear most commonly on an oily skin type and can be present at the early stages of mild to moderate acne.

How can we treat blackheads?

We use several different treatment methods to deal with blackhead removal

  • Deep Cleanse Facial includes cleansing, exfoliating, steam and extraction with the added benefit of our blue LED light which has healing and antibacterial benefits 
  • Optiphi Indulgent Classic Facials will also include extraction and Blue LED light
  • Optiphi Glycolic peels including extraction and LED Blue light (16yrs and above).

Your therapist will discuss the best course of treatment for you at your consultation. We may recommend a course of treatments depending on the severity of the problem or regular visits once a month to maintain a clear complexion.

A good home care routine using the correct products is important and will make a big difference in keeping the skin clean and healthy in between your professional treatments. Advice on products and lifestyle will be given to you to help manage your home care routine.
