Blackheads can be more prominent in our teenage years, but for people with an oily, acne prone, skin type they can appear at any age.
Blackheads form when pores become clogged with a mix of dead skin cells and excess oil known as sebum, which comes from your sebaceous glands.
The reason they are called blackheads is because once it is exposed to the air it turns black in appearance. Many of us will mistake blackheads for sebaceous filaments which are part of the natural composition of our skin. Extracting these can cause further problems to your skin and that’s why it is important to have someone that has the experience to know the difference between the two.
In this facial treatment I use pHformula products which are non comedogenic and paraben free. Which is perfect for these skin types.
If you are a teen or young adult and suffer with pimples, blackheads, oiliness or breakouts this is the facial for you.
This teen facial treatment begins with a skin cleanse using pHformula E.X.F.O cleanser, followed by application of S.K.I.N primer to degrease the skin and assist with the cleansing process allowing better product absorption.
S.P. Complex will then be applied and left on the skin for up to 5 minutes with a combination of the following acids: Lactobionic Acid, Mandelic Acid, Hydroxypropionic Acid and Glycolic Acid. This step will help to soften the stratum corneum and reduce bacteria and inflammation to ensure the blackhead removal facial does not damage the skin barrier.
After extractions, your skin will look a little red. The Byonik Pulse-Trigger Laser is a relaxing, painless treatment that will accelerate healing response and reduce this inflammation, killing bacteria and detoxifying the skin. Click here to learn more about the Byonik Laser.
Then there is a choice of two masks. The A.D.V.A.N.C.E.D peel-off mask which contains activated charcoal and helps to purify, sooth and balance the skin. Or, the SOS peel–off mask containing natural cranberry which helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier by preventing water loss. I would decide which mask will be best for your skin.
This facial treatment perfect for teenage skin ends with a layer of the perfect moisturiser that won't leave your face feeling greasy: the P.O.S.T recovery cream.
