Blackheads and Whitehead Treatment
Blackheads also known as open comedones are follicles that have a wider than normal opening. They are filled with plugs of sebum, keratin and sloughed-off cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the material in the follicle the typical black colour. Blackheads are often found on the nose, but can also be found in other areas of the face and body.
What are Whiteheads?
Whiteheads, also known as closed comedones, are follicles that are filled with the same material as blackheads, but have only a microscopic opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.
What Treatment is Available for Black Heads & White Heads?
The key to skin care for acne is using a skin regime containing vitamin A to reduce the skins sebum production and increase the cell turnover reducing the clogging of the skin cells. The vitamin A benefits of Beaute Pacifique’ s Super 3 Booster will help to improve and prevent the skin impurities.
An overnight cure has not been found. However, using good skin care methods aids in the daily and steady improvement of follicle health.
Extraction may be used by an experienced skin care specialist; use of our deep cleansing facial treatment will help in the cleansing of the skin. This combined with an individually prescribed homecare regime is recommended for the effective treatment to prevent problems with pimples and impure skin.

I had a fantastic massage from Donna today. Totally professional and made me feel very welcome and at ease. I really liked how she asked me what scented oil I wanted with my massage.Was a nice personal touch! The pressure was good- firm as i like it and I left there relaxed, feeling pampered and wanting to book another asap. Thanks again Donna !Klaire Louise Kampbell
