Acne Mechanism And Acne Vaccums

Recommended Posts

Ok, so you can the pictures here.


I've been prescribed an anti biotic (in the past) and apparently they do work. Though, I don't understand how exactly. So, the follicle gets blocked, it fills with sebum, then bacteria get into the sebum and it grows bigger. How would simply killing the bacteria solve this problem, you also have to get the sebum out of the follicle, don't you? I've heard of some products which can vaccuum out the sebum, but I think you'd have to be very carefully doing this as you don't want to cause a wound and get a scar. Would it make any sense to wax the hair, pull it out of the follicle, to give more room for the sebum to get out/and or vacuum it out?
