Less scars if you don't pop a pimple?

Recommended Posts

Yes that was a rule I learned very early on. Dont pick or pop unless u have to. If you do then use

a sterile needle and poke GENTLY pushing to rid the spot of infection. Unless its a really big head

dont pikc or pop. Never squeeze out blackheads use those strips for that. I didnt pop and I scarred

so whatever but still I am sure I would have had more had I popped them. Pimples suck while u have

them scars suck forever unless u are lucky and find treatment for them that works.

Comedone Extractors with an extremely low risk of scarring can be used to eliminate white heads as opposed to just trying to pop them. But use them sparingly....ask your dermatologist about these.
