Blackheads (also known as ‘open’ comedones,) are a type of spot, which rise to the surface of the skin. These spots occur when oil and bacteria have been trapped under the skin, causing an inflammatory, healing response. As the skin over the spot breaks, the contents become exposed and oxidises, causing the open spot to turn black.
There are many reasons why blackheads occur; many blame dirt, stress or certain foods. These factors can contribute to the extent of a person’s blackheads, although are not enough on their own.
At MP Clinic, we offer a number of specialised treatments and an expert product range to help clear blackheads and for you to plan for clear skin.
