Do they ever just...go away ?

4 posts in this topic

Like normal acne, with age will my blackheads slowly disappear ? Or am I faced with having them encased in my face for the next decade ?

I'm 17 and have had acne from the age of 14. The doctor says its quite bad, but not severe enough to cause any pernament scaring once its gone. I do get a fair few normal spots but the majority of my pores are clogged with blackheads, their only visible close-up thankfully but still rather discusting. Do they ever just 'go away' with age, or do I have to manually extract them once my hormones have calmed down ?

I've got MaMa lotion but it doesn't seem to be shifting them, they seem to be buried deep beneath the surface. I've given up with BP and the MaMa lotion since its just tearing shreads off my skin and making my face look even more manky. I just hope they'll be a time when it all disappears an I can freely live my life without worrying all the time about it.

Thanks.

If you have blackheads, they just don't 'go away'. You probably need to start extracting them with a sterile blackhead extractor. Extract 4 or 5 every second day, don't force any out. Even if they are very bad, you'll see a big difference in 12-18 months.

If you really want to do extractions, I'd recommend going and getting a facial. This way you'll know they're being done correctly when your skin is soft and your pores are open.
