Pretty startling clip of blackhead extraction. Seems to have been shot with a scopic camera. Maybe this is what dermatologists do for fun?

When blackheads are extracted they can appear in two different ways depending on how long they have been in your pore. The film shows both types. If the blackhead has been in you pore for years, when extraced it will appear yellow/blackish, conical and solid. If its a recently formed blackhead, only the tip will have oxidisied and hardened. The rest of the pore will still be filled with whiteish translucent sebum.

The problem is that blackheads do not go away. Even if you leave them alone and they eventually dry out in your late 40's, early 50's, and yes I mean late 40's, early 50's, your pores will have been distended to such an extent that you will still have those enlarged pores. I say squeeze out GENTLY and use SA acid.

So squeeze our GENTLY, and use lot of SA acid and ice water.

I did not find it disgusting or appalling. I guess that's because I see much worse everyday in my work. It looked actually a whole heck of a lot more clean than some of the things I see everyday.
Er, deleted a description of a wound since that video bugged some of you. biggrin.gif

That doesnt look real. No one has that amount of puss in that amount of thickness come out of their face
My regimen changed (starting 5/16/09) and I am not a happy camper

AM regimen
Wash face and chest with Kaiser 5% bp wash
Moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream
Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream
Apply make up, blush, finishing powder, MAC moisture cover to dark underyeye circles
Pop a doxycycline

PM regimen
Remove make up with desert esscence jojoba oil using cotton balls
starting evening of May 28, 2009, I wash my face with Face Reality Skincare Sensitive Skin Gel Cleanser at night time only
Apply Differin to face and chest
Wait to dry and moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream
Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream
Pop a doxycycline

Foundation- MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NC20 or MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NW15, apply a MAC blush, apply MAC prep and prime finishing powder


Anyone who has a problem zit thats having a hard time healing, try this and let me know if it helped you. Mix one tablespoon of sea salt with three tablespoons of warm water, apply to a cotton ball or a paper towel. Apply to the zit for ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash it off.

It is a very close up view, so that's why it looks like so much.
