About the Comedone Extractor and Its Usefulness

Posted by beauty33 on October 26th, 2017

If you're similar to most of the population and you're having trouble with stubborn, relentless blackheads, then you're most likely looking for a solution. In a lot of cases, that's literally what people look for. They want a chemical solution that will make comedones disappear quickly.

The honest truth is, all solutions, even spot treatments take time to work. There is however, a way to speed things up. You can squeeze out all the gross junk out of them with a comedone extractor.

Comedone is just a technical term for blackhead. It isn't used nearly as much as the term blackhead. But it's the same exact thing and looks and contains the same oils.

A comedone extractor takes a more physical approach to the problem. The most common blackhead tool is the fine loop extractor. It almost looks like a dentists pick but instead, it has two very small metal loops, one on each end. A smaller loop for small blackheads, and a bigger loop for large blackheads and pimples.

The fine loop comedone extractor works the best after a hot shower, when your pores are open and loosened up. Steaming your face over hot water is another option. Just be careful not to get too close and burn yourself.

After that, you center the blemish inside the appropriate sized loop and then press down until all the gross junk is squeezed out. It sounds pretty gross but it helps a lot.

This won't solve your problem forever though. It's more of a quick fix in tight situations or to begin the pimple and blackhead removal process. Whiteheads will still be there, they'll just be smaller and less noticeable. Blackheads will now be emptied out, but not completely sanitized and the pores will still be slightly visible.

So to keep the blackheads and zits away, you'll want to use a good acne face wash daily. A comedone extractor is a very helpful tool but it's not a cure.
