This treatment is specifically prescribed to remove blackheads (medically known as open comedones) using a warm wet gauze and an infrared lamp to release the clogged pores. A pressing motion with sterile gauze from the side to middle part of the pore is carried out to extrude blackheads. After this, the skin is disinfected with 3 % boric acid, a lotion containing alcohol, or alternatively a tincture of iodine.
Duration of treatment: 5-10 minutes
