Blackhead Scars After Facial?
Hello… I want to ask, 3 days ago I did my first facial at a beauty clinic. Arrived “now the blackheads on my nose are striped and black, why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, where do you do facials? Is it done under the supervision of a doctor or dermatologist?
Facial is a procedure that is often done to help maintain healthy skin, including removing dead skin cells, cleaning blackheads, brightening the skin, and so on. This procedure can include skin cleansing, steam, massage, mask, and so on. After the facial, you will generally be given advanced skin care products for you to use at home.
However, a safe facial is when done under the supervision of a doctor. This is because, many chemicals are used in the facial process that must be adapted to your skin type and the problems that exist on your skin. Improper facial procedures can actually irritate your skin.
The appearance of black marks on the skin area of blackheads can indicate open skin pores. Or it could be, this condition occurs due to irritation and infection after improper skin care. In mild conditions, complaints will improve in 1 to 2 days after facial.
However, if the complaint does not improve within 3 days, or appears accompanied by itching, burning, redness, or even swelling of the skin, then you should immediately consult a dermatologist for further evaluation. The doctor can evaluate your skin condition. , then determine the best treatment, for example by giving a special cream.
At this time, you should not hold or squeeze the black spots that appear on your face, let alone using hands that are not clear. Routinely wash your face 2 times a day using a mild cleansing soap containing salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and retinoic acid. Protect your skin from direct sun exposure, for example by using a sun screen. Limit the use of make-up that is too thick on the face, especially those with lots of black spots.
Hope it helps ya..
