How to Treat Blackheads

If our faces were a house, blackheads would be cockroaches. They seemingly infest our mug, and once you think you’ve gotten rid of them, one springs up. But fear not! Your friends at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa are here to help with a few tips and treatments.

What are Blackheads?

But to destroy an enemy, you first must know what it is. Blackheads are a mix of oxidized dead skin cells and oils, sitting in pores. It’s the exposure to air, that makes the pores turn black. Though there’s a lot you can do to stay on top of them, there’s a big genetic disposition to blackheads/pore size. One of the best tools in your arsenal against blackheads is salicylic acid. It’s a beta hydroxy acid that works to remove excess oils and help exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of your face. Colair not only sells products from SkinMedica that includes salicylic acid, but a few of our facials use them as well.

Treating Blackheads

Though it might be tempting to pick at those stubborn blackheads, you should leave it to the professionals with a facial. Picking can leave you with an infection and then possibly scarring. Extractions during a facial at Colair make all the difference. We start off by steaming the pores, which opens them up, and after some magical topical solutions, we can manually clean up all of those pores. After a facial with us, one of our highly trained aestheticians can point you in the right direction for product. You’re going to want to keep your skin moisturized, it helps keep the skin balances so you don’t overproduce oil.
