Blackheads (closed comedones) usually are dark only in the center. A video consultation with our Concierge Dermatologists can help too. ...Read more

Although this amount of bleeding may be alarming, many times the injury is not severe and the bleeding will stop with treatment you can do at home. Apply steady pressure for 15 minutes, this should stop it. ...Read more
