You know those things on your nose, chin and checks that you think are blackheads? They might not be blackheads! Those dots on your nose with white gunk that looks like spaghetti when you squeeze them are probably sebaceous filaments.
I learned about sebaceous filaments from Montana, one of the fabulous Refresh medical aestheticians. She told me that my lifelong battle with nose “blackheads” was really a battle with sebaceous filaments. The good news is that sebaceous filaments are a part of my skin’s normal functioning. The bad news is that it is almost impossible to get these little spaghetti things to go away.
Regular Hydrafacial Treatments
One of the BEST ways to (temporarily) clean these sebaceous filaments is to get regular Hydrafacials.
Our Refresh HydraFacial treatments remove the dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin while cleaning, hydrating and moisturizing serums. They are heaven on earth because Hydrafacials are soothing and non-irritating and will leave you immediately refreshed.
Check it out. We took a picture after my last HydraFacial. Here’s what Montana cleaned OUT OF MY SKIN after my last HydraFacial. EW!
If that is not enough to get you to book your appointment at Refresh ASAP? Check out what happens when Sebaceous Filaments get out of control! Here’s a little video from Dr. Pimple Popper about this problem! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
