The Dermeren gold plated precision tool, safely removes blackheads, pimples and blocked pores.
Some blackheads are extremely deep and require a Comedone Extractor (Precision Blackhead Extractor). Using your fingers will run the risk of infection, but you are also putting pressure on more skin than necessary for a small breakout, creating more inflammation and swelling.
How to Safely Use a Precision Blackhead Extractor (Comedone Extractor)
- Apply a warm compress (such as a damp, warm washcloth) to the affected area to soften and open up the pore.
- Clean the skin and the Precision Blackhead Extractor with alcohol.
- Place the wire loop around the blackhead or white head. Press gently to extract the dead skin and sebum that’s clogging the pore. If nothing immediately comes out of the breakout, stop pressing and let it rest. If bleeding occurs, stop pressing. In this instance, it’s likely that the contents of the clogged pore have already come out and there’s nothing left, or the spot itself wasn’t ready to be popped. A little bruise may develop around the breakout from the pressure of the Precision Blackhead Extractor, which will go away on its own.
- Gently wash your face with soap and water to remove any remaining bacteria from the surface of the skin. Avoid spot treatments, which can further irritate the skin. Wait until the following day to resume your normal skin-care routine.
