How are u supposed to pop to prevent scarring?

I have a lot of brown/red scars from the bad habit of popping. I used to just rub a wet towel over my face until it ripped the whitehead off, and now i regret it. I have a whitehead popping tool it kinda surrounds the pimple and makes it pop. The derm said it shouldnt scar if i use that, but i have a huge scar when i used ti once. If you take away my scars, my acne isnt that bad.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any techniques to pop a whitehead to prevent scarring, and if anyone knows of any cream/gel or anything to help fade scars faster.

Thanks i appreciate it

umm dont pop it? you dont need to pop whiteheads. if you leave it alone it will turn into a little tiny scab that you can just pick off.
