Blackheads form when a clog or plug develops in the opening of your skin’s hair follicles. Dead skin cells and oils collect in the opening, producing a bump called a comedone. If the skin over the bump stays closed, it’s called a whitehead. If the skin opens, exposure to the air makes it look black, and a blackhead forms.
O-cosmedics peels, Dermalogica Pro Power Peels and Microdermabrasion can help remove excessive oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. LED blue light therapy can also help kill the bacteria that causes active acne.
