Blackheads are stubbornly stable structures that can last for weeks or months. This makes people understandably want to remove them, and removal can be achieved in a professional setting by an esthetician/cosmetician, nurse, or doctor with a tool called a comedone extractor, or at home through other forms of manual removal like Biore® strips or blackhead-removing masks. However, the problem is, blackheads usually refill within a couple of weeks after you remove them. So what do you do? There are 2 options:
Prevent them in the first place: This is always the best way forward. If you properly treat your skin you will prevent blackheads and not have to deal with them.
Properly treat your skin after you remove blackheads: To prevent blackheads from refilling, after you remove blackheads, immediately begin applying an anti-acne regimen to prevent them from refilling.
