Additional Ways to Remove Blackheads
When it comes to using surgery in the treatment of blackheads it sounds like a drastic measure. But for the removal of blackheads the surgery involved is a simple procedure and non invasive.
For all types of acne removal, the common and most widely used procedures are dermabrasion and chemical peeling. Other common techniques include collagen and fat tissue filling. And depending on the full extent of the blackheads, laser treatment in various strengths is also an option.
Hopefully on your visit to your dermatologist (doctor of the skin), he will examine you and recommend what will be the best treatment for you.
If the blackheads or acne have caused scarring on the surface of your skin, a course of chemical peel would be ideal. it has also been known to yield very good results even when the scarring has become quite deep.
Laser treatment is ne of the more common forms of treatment for acne type conditions. The strength and duration of the laser treatment is dependent on the condition of your problem. Using infared laser beams (hence the name laser treatment), this treatment elevates the scars and tightens skin tissue without harming the patient.
Laser treatment has the ability to get to the lower skin layers, more so than many other acne treatments. This means the results are permanent. More complicated spots and scarred tissue areas may also be treated this way, even if the scarring is messy and seemingly beyond hope.
The dermabrasion technique is a treatment that was designed around the problems of acne scars. It is considered better than the chemical peel as it has the ability to reach deeper into the layers. The scar which look like they were made using an ice pick are treated by combining the punch excision of the scar tissue and dermabrasion.
And for the real bad cases, skin grafting is used but only when necessary.
With any surgical procedure you may choose to follow, the main point is that that the treatment is used to enhance your skin, which needs the strength to renew and reproduce new skin tissue.
This is all made easier by taking on the right type of eating habits which will always help with any skin treatment.
Your skin will always need the essentials such as vitamins and cleanliness to help keep the blackheads at bay.
