We’ve all dealt with them at some point or another — pesky blackheads
that reappear no matter how much we double cleanse or exfoliate. Blackheads are small black lumps that appear under the surface of the skin. What you’re seeing are trapped hair follicles, excess oil and dead skin cells exposed to the air, causing them to oxidise and turn black. If your at-home methods are not working, you may require a blackhead removal facial like the HydraFacial
How To Remove Blackheads
While it may be tempting to extract your own blackheads, you should always refrain from doing so. Squeezing the skin will only cause more bacteria to spread, resulting in more congestion and redness from irritation. When you visit a medi-clinic like CBB Blvd, skin experts use specialised tools to gently and carefully extract excess oils and dead skin from the pores. At CBB Blvd
, we highly recommend our HydraFacial
for the removal of blackheads.
How HydraFacial Works
HydraFacial cleanses, exfoliates, extracts in one treatment without depriving your skin of hydration. It uses a combination of antioxidants and peptides that nourish the skin and restore the moisture barrier. Dead skin and excess oil are painlessly extracted with a small wand-like device that vacuums out the skin’s impurities. This vortex-fusion technology combined with hydrating and moisturising serums is the reason why this cutting edge treatment is completely patented.
What Can I Expect Before, During and After a HydraFacial?
This treatment is non-invasive and requires no preparation beforehand. Simply come to your appointment with a fresh clean face and get ready to be amazed by the results! This blackhead removal facial lasts around 30 minutes, as our estheticians
work procedurally to cleanse the entire face. You may experience a slight tingling sensation during the process, however, the experience is comfortable and pain-free. Immediately after receiving a HydraFacial you will see instant results with long lasting, hydrating effects from the active ingredients infused into your imperfection-free skin. There is no downtime or UV sensitivity caused by this treatment.
What Other Benefits Does This Blackhead Removal Facial Have?
HydraFacial’s technology takes a holistic approach to improve the look and feel of your skin. Impurities are suctioned away, instantly leaving your face with an even complexion free from unwanted texture. The treatment also addresses:
- congested skin
- fine lines & wrinkles
- dull, lacklustre skin
The hydrating ingredients leave your skin supple, plump and refreshed with added glow immediately after the first treatment. HydraFacial is an amazing addition to your skincare regimen; booking regular appointments once or twice a month will see extended benefits.
Other Treatments You Can Try for Blackheads
Unlike other treatment modalities, the HydraFacial has no downtime or contraindications with any other treatment, making it our top pick for blackhead extraction. You can come in on your lunch break and receive a relaxing, resurfacing and restorative glow and get on with your day! However, if you are looking for additional blackhead removal options, we offer a number of treatments that can also help you achieve clear skin.
- Guinot Facials — The Guinot Hydraclean and Hydra Peel are both great facials for the gentle removal of blackheads.
- Microdermabrasion — Microdermabrasion and Hydro Microdermabrasion are another method of resurfacing the face with tiny crystalline tips.
- Facial Peels — The Jessner and Mandelic Acid Peel are both top recommendations for exfoliating and brightening congested skin.
