Treatment solution for Whitehead removal:

Microdermabrasion: It is an ideal choice for whiteheads removal due to its deeply exfoliating nature of the treatment. The gentle vacuum with a diamond coated head will eradicate the top layer of dead cells removing potential clogging whilst providing clarified and refined skin.

Chemical peels: It provide medium exfoliation for whiteheads and blackheads using white heads removal products that include lactic acid, mandelic acid, enzymes, retinoids, niacinamide, salicylic acid and resorcinol. The chemical peel can remove whiteheads from face and other parts with a simultaneous action to disinfect, de-clog and decongest affected skin along with preventing future breakouts.

Carbon laser peel: It is also referred as the “China Doll Peel“, an innovative whitehead removal treatment that utilizes light beams to treat skin imperfection.
