i currently use mech. exfoliants twice a week on them (doesnt do much)

retin-a every nite

yeh

and tbh I dont' know anything that really gets riid of them.

I got them a lot worse then you though.

The biore strips can kinda get it all out, but they are costly, and there are certian methids i have to do to get them to work well.

so they are blackheads???

I thought those were filaments. And I wouldn't worry about them. Everyone (besides elderlies/babies), even people without acne has those. Don't mess with them. Even if you use the biore strips, they'll come back in a week anyways.

I agree that they look like sebaceous filaments to me. Lots of them, they are uniform in size, they always come back. They may be more common in people with acne prone skin because of the tendency to be oily as well.
