In Topic: Will Blackheads Permanently Enlarge Pores?

20 January 2014 - 07:18 AM

i think yea they do, i have alot of them on the nose and area near to nose, they are gross so i extract them, it looks better that way but yes it does seem like it have scarred those pores. if someone decides to comment my plan is to say they are freckles #sadlife

:T

I always have blackheads on my nose. Sometimes i extract them and they leave a hole that turns into another blackhead within a few weeks.

However, since starting my glycolic acid facewash (its a chemical exfoliant) i have noticed that the blackheads go away without leaving holes. They dont fill back up either. 

I agree with teh above, forcing them out before they are ready doesnt help me. Exfolaiting works though, ive never tried a scrub though just a chemical exfoliant.

I havent tried steaming either, but glycolic acid facewash works. 

 

I hope they go for you, blackheads are bad enough without them leaving a scar.

can you name specific product you use please? this sounds interesting

Your welcome!
No, I didn't take any pictures of the process because I could barely look at myself. One of my scars was caused by a kenalog injection. It gave me a lot of stress and caused a time of depression for me.
Anyways....the IPLs range in price from $199-$300. The YAG I had as a spot treatment for my scar and it was only $75. I'm not sure how much it is for the whole face.

 

why would you spend so much cash for such minimal effects?

-when you have read so many articles and various in depth scientist info that you could become scientist yourself but you still fucking break out like its nothing =_=
 
-when family tell you to not pick your pimples or else itll get worse but you feel like that shit itches, aches and actually can almost feel how its growing and you just want to tear your whole skin off! ><
 
-when you watch a tv show or video and often find yourself dozing off from show plot just to think about how awasome peoples skin looks *_*
