Pimples, blackheads and whiteheads occur when pores become obstructed with a combination of dirt, oil and dead skin cells. Many people find it difficult to resist the temptation to pick at or squeeze pimples. It’s important to avoid doing so – picking and squeezing can easily spread bacteria around the face, creating more pore obstructions – and even worse, it can actually cause permanent scarring on your skin.
A safe and effective tool to remove blackheads and pimples is a Double Loop Extractor. This tool, preferred by dermatologists and skin care professionals, features two different loop sizes for small or large blackheads and pimples. Skin Rx’s Wire Extractor is recommended for blackhead removal. Both extractors are German-made stainless steel instruments and are the finest tools available for at-home extraction.
To use, start with a clean face. The extractor tool will remove pimples more effectively if you steam your face or use a hot water compress prior to use – the heat will soften blemishes and make removal much easier. To begin the extraction process, lay the preferred side of the extractor tool on top of the blemish, encircling the area with the loop – when using the Double Loop Extractor, apply the small loop for whiteheads and the flat side for blackheads. Lightly apply slow and even pressure until the trapped matter is forced out. If the blackhead or pimple does not release easily, do not continue to attempt the extraction – applying too much pressure can cause irritation, infection and scarring. When you’ve completed the extraction process, be sure to disinfect the area. The Double Loop Extractor and the Wire Extractor are not recommended for deep, cystic acne.
The Skin Rx Double Loop Extractor is also available as part of our Extractor Kit #1, which also includes anti-bacterial wipes, lancets, and 15% Glycolic Smoothing Gel. Our Extractor Kit #2 features the Wire Extractor.

Okay – your blackheads may not actually talk to you and tell you to do evil things, but who can think rationally when your skin looks so terrible? Blackheads are a very common and stubborn problem for both adolescents and adults and it takes time and a consistent skin routine to clear them up completely.
Blackheads, or “open comedones”, are follicles which have a wider opening than normal follicles. When these follicles become clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, a chemical reaction happens which gives them a black appearance. Improper cleansing is a major cause of blackheads along with the use of facial products which contain oil.
