Blackhead Removal Tools/Blackhead Extractors
Between shops on the high-street and the internet it’s now possible to easily purchase blackhead removal tools anywhere. Forcefully squeezing out all the keratin debris from below the skin’s surface provides all the same benefits as popping spots and pimples though—which is to say, none. While you can buy these blackhead extractors, also known as comedone extractors for use at home, that doesn’t mean you should. CoLaz advises against this practice and suggests leaving such procedures to expert beauty technicians to avoid scarring.
You can further spread bacteria, injure facial skin cells, cause new infections, and more. Facial scars from blackhead extraction are quite common if the procedure is done incorrectly and such scars are the consequence of damage to the deeper layers of skin—which means they will take a long time to fade too. To avoid being left with angry, red skin, it’s definitely a technique best left for the experts.
