Blackheads and whiteheads are common skin complaints among many teenagers and young adults. Some adults are plagued with these conditions all their lives. These can impact any skin type, although oily skin that is prone to blockage is more likely to have an acne outbreak. There is a combination of reasons for these conditions, with heredity and hygiene definitely playing critical roles.

There are definite and concise steps an individual can take to improve the appearance of their skin. Washing the face and body with the proper cleansing items can make a difference. After washing, utilising the right moisturisers and acne lotions will help. Since problems such as these normally start deep down in the skin tissue, staying on top of keeping the skin healthy and clean is always very important to avoid outbreaks.

However, some people are particularly unlucky and suffer from outbreaks in spite of doing all the right things. In these cases, there is a deeper underlying cycle that needs to broken and a more modern approach is called for.

Treatment Options for Blackheads and Whiteheads

The professional skin care clinicians at Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics will advise you to take steps to improve your skin health immediately. Taking the right steps can prevent further blackhead and whitehead outbreaks. In conjunction with this regular maintenance, there are numerous treatment options available, but the two most popular are microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Microdermabrasion reaches deep down into the subcutaneous layer of the skin where skin cells regenerate. This encourages softer skin that glows with inner health. It is ideal for cleaning the coatings away from blackheads and whiteheads and just generally smoothing the texture of the skin. Microdermabrasion also eradicates dead skin cells in just one treatment. If you have a severe case of acne outbreaks, then you may require two to three treatment sessions for the best results.

Chemical Peels for Blackheads and Whiteheads

If you are more interested in chemical peels then you will be glad to learn that these do not include harsh ingredients that overly dry out the facial skin. In fact, they are gentle and cleansing, reaching to a medium depth into the skin to help exfoliate and purify. The glycolic acid helps to dry out acne outbreaks without creating any redness on the skin’s surface. The disinfectant in our chemical peels is also excellent for removing excess bacteria from the skin. The cycle of inflammation is broken and the risk of another outbreak is minimised with this safe and effective treatment.
