What is a Blackhead?
Blackhead, as the name signifies is an oxidized mix of skin’s dead cells and oil, which while staying in the skin pores, gets oxidized and turn black on exposure to the air. Dr. Vidushi Singal explains that, in dermatology, these blackheads are also known as open comedone (a scientific name for an acne lesion). These differ from the whiteheads which sometimes appear on skin and are technically known as closed comedones.
The occurrence of blackheads and pimples can be associated with your skin type, hormonal changes and with the weather at times or they may even be genetic or diet related. They steal the glow from your skin and make it look dull and unhealthy.
Chronic pimples or acne adversely affect the self – confidence of several people. Although the underlying reason for the actual cause is yet not fully known, it is seen that certain set of people are more prone to getting it.
Treatment of Blackheads:
To get rid of blackheads or acne associated with them, you can treat them with natural remedies at home or get a suitable dermatology treatment from a good dermatologist near you through over the counter and prescribed treatments.
- Salicylic Acid
Treating mild blackheads is easy using salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) that helps exfoliate cells from skin’s surface and helps in removing the excess oil. The best way to use it is through a gentle face scrub of same on the blackheads, which helps in keeping the skin pores clean and clear. The application usually is thrice a week for oily or a combination skin and maximum once for a sensitive skin.
- Retinoid Application
For slightly more persistent blackheads, you may go for retinoid cream application, which reduces the stickiness of the skin cells that clog pores and fastens the skin regeneration rate. The right percentage of the application is vital for effective results.
- Other Dermatological Treatments
For severe cases, consult the best dermatologist in Ludhiana. The treatments may include oral medications for decreasing the oil production capacity and thus, reducing the growth of blackheads and pimples in future.
If nothing is working, based on your condition, your dermatologist may recommend you advanced treatments such as chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, medical facials or specially designed anti-acne facials.
- Home Care
Follow proper cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine. Dr Vidushi- the best dermatologist in Moga recommends including exfoliation to your regular routine as well. Exfoliation ensures that your dead skin cells and other dirt gets wiped away leaving a clean and clear skin.
Do not squeeze, pop pimples/acne as they may aggravate the situation or may leave permanent scars. If you want to remove blackheads on you own, squeeze gently and follow proper cleaning using a mild cleanser. Thereafter, apply a mask. Properly covering your face may also impact the growth of these blackheads and the irritation caused by them.
