Does a Hydrafacial Remove Blackheads?

blackheads and hydrafacial


Blackheads are a type of acne. They appear from blocked hair follicles and pores. They are a mild type of acne and are mainly caused by pollution, dirt, and oil on the skin. Lots of people seek facial skin treatments to clear acne and blackheads, leaving them with a flawless appearance and the confidence to match. Hydrafacial is a common choice of facial skin treatment.

What is Hydrafacial treatment?

Hydrafacial is a popular non-invasive facial treatment that combines several skincare techniques to cleanse, exfoliate, extract impurities, and hydrate the skin. It is sometimes referred to as “hydradermabrasion” because it incorporates elements of both hydration and microdermabrasion in its treatment process.

Hydrafacials reinvigorate the skin with a serum containing hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and peptides, which aim to replenish and hydrate the skin after a machine is used to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. This leaves the skin feeling refined and radiant after just one treatment.

Does a Hydrafacial remove blackheads?

Yes! Hydrafacial clears up the pores with its patented vortex vacuum suction that removes dirt and bacteria. By emptying the pores, Hydrafacials are very effective at getting rid of existing blackheads and help to prevent them from developing in the future. It is one of the best facials to treat acne!

Why you shouldn’t squeeze your blackheads

Many people squeeze their blackheads to get rid of them. But blackheads don’t usually respond to squeezing. There is not much movement from under the skin’s surface and it is harder to get a grip or good squeeze them out. To treat them effectively, you really need micro equipment to squeeze the blackhead acne, like tweezers or acne poppers. Pushing and squeezing with nails or metal acne poppers may damage the skin. Plus spread the under skin bacteria and acne formation over a wider area.

Also, most fingertips are a breeding ground for bacteria, so you could be causing more problems than solving.

Blackhead removal strips

Blackhead removal strips are not as effective as a Hydrafacial either. When you apply them wet and leave them to dry, the strips stick to the top layer of your skin. When taking it off, it will only grab the top layer of the blackheads and leave most of the bacteria, sebum and oil behind. But it will scrape off the top layer of your skin. Exfoliation is good for your skin. However, only when it is done evenly and safely.

The blackhead strips are usually 2-4 inches wide. And they only exfoliate certain areas on the skin, which can cause your skin to look uneven. Lastly, the blackheads are usually formed on the nose and chin areas. Which are the hardest places to apply the blackhead strips? The strips are very thick for the crease and they usually don’t sit properly on the top of the nostrils or the chin crease.


Hydrafacial is the most effective treatment for blackheads

Hydrafacial provides an even and deep skin cleanse. It clears off the pores fully. Reaches the hardest areas and gives you the best results for blackheads. You can see our Hydrafacial before and after photos here.
