treating blackheads gold coast

Comedomal acne is also known as Blackhead acne and is one of the easiest forms of acne to treat. In fact with a chemical peel as much as 50-80% can be improved over a matter of a week or two.

Blackheads are due to keratin build up- essentially skin-cells plugging up your oil gland. Treatments are aimed at unplugging this build up, then preventing the keratin plug from reforming.

Treatments include -

  • Chemical peels with sal acid or glycolic acid
  • Vitamin A creams
  • Or gentle extractions under local anaesthetic creams

Specialists at Brisbane’s Acne Specialist Clinic not only will find a solution to treat blackheads, but will also devise a program to ensure they won’t come back!
