Blackheads on the nose are most common among those with thick, oily, and dark skin types. Technically known as comodones, blackheads on the nose can be a chronic, recurring skin condition; they are not easily treated using at-home remedies such as pore strips.
Strawberry Nose presents as small black ‘dots’ on the nasal skin, which are symptomatic of oil-blocked pores. The black colour of these dots is not a result of trapped dirt or grease, but from the oxidisation of sebum in the open air.
Luckily, there is a solution for Strawberry Nose pores. At bea Skin Clinic, a range of treatment options for Strawberry Nose blackheads are available.
At bea Skin Clinic, we offer specialised treatment programs for cases of Strawberry Nose blackheads. For relatively mild cases, we perform medical microdermabrasion using the Derma Genesis M2 Turbo alongside blackhead extraction and blue LED light therapy. Medical microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin and remove dead cells from the epidermis, whereas the careful extraction of comodones using a special instrument provides immediate cosmetic relief. Finally, blue LED light acts to kill p acnes, the bacteria which causes acne and also helps to quell excess sebum production.
For more severe cases of Strawberry Nose, we can perform the above treatments alongside an anti-inflammatory chemical peel. For scarred pores, we use the No-Tear Dermapen - a fractional needling device - to induce collagen production and reduce the depth of enlarged pores, preventing the recurrence of Strawberry Nose blackheads.
For optimum results, weekly or bi-weekly Strawberry Nose treatments are recommended, as well as an at-home treatment programme using bea Skin Care’s Acne Mask, an instant pore-cleanser containing Kaolin clay. In order to maintain the results of Strawberry Nose blackhead removal treatments, the avoidance of oil-based cosmetic products and thick moisturisers is recommended.
