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!
