A whitehead is a type of acne that forms when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria become trapped within one of the skin pores. Heavy makeup, certain products, sweat, and dirt are all factors that contribute to the formation of whiteheads on the skin although hormonal or hereditary factors are the main reasons.
A whitehead can develop anywhere on your body. The nose, chin, and forehead are the common areas but they can be formed on the chest, back, shoulders, and arms.
Unlike blackheads, which can be pushed out, whiteheads are closed lesions and this can make treatment a bit more challenging. At LILYDERMIS center in Calgary (yyc) the whiteheads can be treated and removed effectively by electrocoagulation and thermocoagulation devices.
