Permanent Blackhead Removal
I am using blackhead removal strips but my blackheads are too deep into my skin to benefit. How should I bring them to the surface without any product?
Not mechanically: Any mechanical removal of blackheads has probability of causing tissue damage which may lead to scarring. You will need combination of oral and topical medicines to reduce the bacteria causing acne and exfoliate the skin. A prime consult will help us determine the correct combination for you!
I keep seeing all these home remedies for blackhead removal using baking soda. I wanted to see if it works or if it's bad for the skin.?
Blackheads: It won't hurt or help you should see a physician for acne medicine that will be effective
Permanently? Doubt: This will happen. Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day. Use oil free products on face. No heavy foundations. Don't squeeze pimples/ blackheads. Avoid touching face (i.e., cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after stenous exercise. Consider otc products (w salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > than mild acne see dermatologist (discuss meds, comedone extractor, etc.).
Can squeezing nose hard that it pains to squeeze out blackheads make your nose bigger PERMANENTLY?
No: No. Nose size may change due to swelling bu twill promptly return to normal.
Yes: PhotoGuy is a quarterback who has major disfigurement because nobody cared enough to manage his acne when he was a teen. The same is true of actor Chris Pine -- he usually hides his scars with beard stubble. This remains a serious personal and professional liability. Please get treated effectively. Acne is not curable until it self-cures with time, but it is always manageable.
What to do if I have acne scars ranging from 2007-2013 and blackhead scars that range from 2010-2013 can this be permanent?
I've got a lot of blackheads on my nose and some on my forehead and cheeks. How do I remove them and preferably prevent them permanently?
Acne: Acne is age related, most of the adolescents get acnes, can continue to adulthood and over time goes away. It is not due to hygiene issue. Management of acne is to keep it under control, no one time medicine to cure it permanently. Use benzoyl peroxide 5-10% every evening. Can use prescriptin meds if not getting better, see a dermatologist.
Comedone Extractor: Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day ; use oil free products. No oily hair or heavy foundations. Exfoliate occasionally. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > mild acne see dermatology (discuss meds, comedone extractor, pore strips, etc.).See 1 more doctor answer
Blackhead treatment: A blackhead occurs when the opening to a hair follicle is blocked with dead skin cells, oil (sebum) +/- bacteria but the pore is open at the skin surface, allowing the material to darken. I recommend that you see a skin care specialist- spa or medical aesthetician for the instant gratification of "removing" it. For ongoing management, opt for a topical agent to accelerate skin cell turnover.
Pore strip/ comedone: Extractor. Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day. Use oil free products on face. No oily hair. No heavy foundations. Don't squeeze pimples. Avoid touching face (i.e., cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (w salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > mild acne see dermatologist (discuss meds, comedone extractor, pore strips, etc.).See 1 more doctor answer
Topcial retinoids: Topical retinoids like Retin-A or differin (adapalene) are the best treatment for blackheads (also known as open comedones). You can have an acne facial. During this facial extractions of the blackheads will be performed. Best to see your dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
