BLACKHEADS

BLACKHEADS

Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to clogged hair follicles. Dead skin cells and oil collect in the opening, producing a bump called a comedone. If the skin on the bump stays closed, it’s called a white head. If the skin opens, exposure to air makes it look black, and results in the formation of the blackhead. These usually appear on the face but can also appear on the body.

Correct treatment of blackheads is imperative to avoid scarring and infection. Here at MKSkin clinic, Milton Keynes, we offer treatment for blackheads. Type of treatment, depends on the extent and the depth of the blackheads.

At MKSkin clinic, we offer blackhead extraction to remove the blackheads. This is a painless procedure carried out under asceptic conditions.

For some people with deep seated blackheads, a combination treatment may be needed, which involves a few sessions of skin peels to gently remove the outer layer of dead skin cells and loosen the blackheads followed by a treatment session for the extraction of the blackheads.
