HydraFacial for blackheads

A professional HydraFacial treatment is a popular all-in-one beauty and skincare treatment that addresses many skin concerns at once — including blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.

If you want the best skin-safe results, it is much better to have your skin properly cleansed by skincare experts than using at-home treatments like pore strips. 

The Benefits of a HydraFacial Blackheads Treatment

Even though HydraFacial has an amazing reputation for deep cleaning the skin, many people still don’t know how good it is for getting rid of blackheads. At Este Medical we do get people asking us during skincare consultations: Do hydrafacials get rid of blackheads? 

Yes! The good news is that hydrafacials do remove dirt and bacteria trapped in the pores. It is very effective at removing grim and deep cleaning the skin’s pores. You might say that hydrafacial and blackheads removal is the best skin therapy out there to treat acne. You will experience instant results with a professional HydraFacial skin treatment for blackheads. 

Have a look at the results — HydraFacial before and after blackheads! 

HydraFacial Before and After

Our Este medical grade HydraFacial gives a deep clean using what feels like a mini vacuum cleaner to extract dirt and debris from the face (e.g., blackheads, whiteheads).

The suction technology stimulates lymphatic draining to detoxify your skin and increase circulation beneath the skin’s surface. All this vacuuming brings pore clogging impurities (e.g., excess sebum, dead skin cells) to the surface which are then exfoliated away.  

What Not To Do, When Getting Rid of Blackheads 

Don’t Squeeze! 

It is tempting to remove blackheads on your own, but it’s risky — as pushing or prying out blackheads with your nails or acne extractor devices you get at a beauty shop can damage the skin’s surface.

And even worse, bacteria can be spread by your fingertips from squeezing blackheads and pimples. Blackheads don’t tend to respond well to at-home squeezing! 

The Downside of Pore Strips 

Another at-home treatment that gets attention when it comes to blackheads are pore strips. These over-the-counter beauty treatments are not as effective as a professional HydraFacial treatment.

For example, the sticky surface of blackhead pore strips only latch on to the top part of the blackheads, but they don’t get deep down into the blackheads, so unfortunately most of the bacteria and oil gets left behind.

You might believe they work in a pinch, but long-term these strips are not doing a great job and may cause you to spread acne causing bacteria to other areas of skin.    

The Skin Benefits of a Professional HydraFacial! 

Does HydraFacial remove blackheads? Yes, and so much more! It can help with oily skin, an uneven complexion, dull looking skin, pigmentation, saggy skin, and wrinkles and fine lines. 

HydraFacial is one of the best exfoliating, deep-cleaning, anti-ageing treatments available. Many skin problems like whiteheads, blackheads, persistent acne, uneven skin tone, pronounced wrinkles, and excessively oily skin are caused by not properly exfoliating and hydrating your skin — a HydraFacial can help fix these problems all in one treatment!

How does a HydraFacial treatment work?

Step 1:

The treatment begins with a deep clean using what feels like a mini vacuum cleaner to extract blackheads and other skin clogging debris. This skin vacuuming step brings pore clogging impurities to the surface so they can be exfoliated away. Our clients love this stage and report that their skin has never felt cleaner!

Step 2:

This step addresses surface texture, tone, and hydration. The skin is treated with a gentle solution containing glycolic acid and salicylic acid to refine the pores and surface texture.

This is followed by another gentle solution with a combination of honey extract and salicylic acid to soothe and heal. It ends with a mix of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid that plump and moisturise the skin. 

Step 3:

A LED light bath completes the treatment. This low-level light therapy has many skincare benefits; it stimulates production of collagen, reduces redness, helps eliminate acne-causing bacteria, and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles.  

After a 1 hour Este Medical HydraFacial you will look radiate, and blackheads will be eliminated!
