Blackheads & Comedones

Blackheads and comedones can be a source of frustration and embarrassment for many individuals. While many people believe that comedones and blackheads only affect sufferers, in reality this condition can happen with out without accompanying acne.

Comedones are clogged hair follicles (pores) that occur when keratin and oil combine to create a barrier in the pore. A whitehead is a sign that the pore is completely blocked, while blackheads are open comedones whose dark color comes from dead skin cells or sebum oxidizing on contact with the oxygen.

At-home tools marketed for addressing blackheads and comedones are temporary fixes that may ultimately damage to the surrounding tissue. Your goal is to look better, feel better, and get real solutions, which these over-the-counter products and tools may not provide you.
