Remove Blackheads with Chemical Peels

There are many ways to get rid of blackheads. One of the most effective blackhead treatments is through chemical peels.

The formation of acne starts with blackheads and whiteheads. To first understand why chemical peels will work to get rid of blackheads, we need to talk a bit about whiteheads and blackheads first.
The formation of blackheads and whiteheads is the first stage of acne. Acne first starts developing inside the hair follicles. Hair follicles have a sort of gland – called a sebaceous gland – that’s attached. This gland products sebum oil.

Certain factors such as excess hormones, stress, diet, and environment (and so on) all can affect sebum production. This change of sebum levels results in little scales inside the follicle. It is these scales that clog up the pores. This blockage of the pore is what causes acne.
How to Blackheads and Whiteheads Form?

Blocked pores form into blackheads and whiteheads. This is called the “first stage of acne.” Another name that refers to these blockages is comediennes. A comediennes is basically a hair follicle plugged up with dead skin cells, bacteria, dirt, and sebum. We call blocked comediennes a whitehead. You can see whiteheads as small bumps on the skin with a white color as the head. Whiteheads differ than blackheads because they have a closed mouth while blackheads protrude from the skin with an open mouth (no seal over the top). Contrary to popular belief, the color of the blackheads is not because it’s dirty. It’s the oxidized sebum that gives blackheads that distinct dark color.
