Scarring from extraction? Anyone experienced this?

Recommended Posts

I have a derm appt. in a 2 weeks and have had what feels & looks like a whitehead under my skin. Exfoliation & Retin-A hasn't helped & its been like that for the past 2 months!

So, if anyone's had this problem, what did your derm do? I researched some & figured he would use a needle & extractor to get it out? Does leave a big mark or can I go to work (& hide) after my appt.?

Also, did it leave any scarring?
