Blackheads in Oakville are a type of acne that occurs when your facial pores or hair follicles are blocked by oil, bacteria, dirt and dead skin cells. Ageing process, sun damage and acne can worsen this condition. They leave open black blemishes that can make your face look older and unclean. They are also known as comedones. Although there are many home remedies and over-the-counter medications, they tend to leave your skin dry, without really eliminating your blackheads completely. Therefore, laser acne treatment at LightTouch Med Spa is a great alternative! Read on for more information about laser acne treatment for blackheads in Oakville, Mississauga, Milton, or Waterloo at LightTouch Med Spa.
What are some of the causes of blackheads in Oakville?
Although blackheads are caused mainly by clogging of hair follicles, there are certain factors that increase your chances of developing blackheads and acne. These include:
- Excess production of body oil
- A buildup of Propionibacterium acne on your skin
- Presence of dead skin cells that might irritate your hair follicles
- Hormonal imbalances during pregnancy, menstruation, adolescence or while consuming birth-control pills
- Consumption of certain medications that contain androgens, lithium or corticosteroids
How can laser acne treatment help with blackheads in Oakville?
Laser treatments treat those deep pockets of oil that are the main source from which blackheads are created. These not only eliminate your blackheads but also see to it that they do not form in future by reducing the future supply of oil to your hair follicles. Beams of light are used to destroy your dead skin cells and bacteria that cause blackheads to reveal smooth, tightened, supple and youthful skin. They also stimulate the production of collagen in your skin and promote the growth of new skin cells in a safe manner. At LightTouch Med Spa, we use the PIXEL Skin Rejuvenation System. This laser uses IPL technology (Intense Pulsed Light) to help kill the Acne P Virus and reduce pink inflammation and breakouts. Then, the laser works to resurface the skin, removing damaged skin and returning the skin to its former healthy foundation.
