How to Use a Blackhead Extractor Tool

Overview

Blackheads occur when the pores in your skin become clogged with oils and other impurities such as dirt and dead skin cells. They take the form of small black dots, mainly on your face, and are frustrating because they seem almost impossible to remove. There are several ways to remove blackheads, including strips, tweezers and blackhead extractor tools. Removing blackheads with extractor tools is easy and effective. Consult a dermatologist if your acne is a serious problem.

Step 1

Heat your skin to open up the pores. You can use steam, or hold a hot cloth on your skin for a few minutes.

Step 2

Place the hole at the end of a fine loop extractor over the blackhead, and gently press into your skin. The inside of the blackhead will push out through the hole. A fine loop extractor is a metal bar with a small hole at each end and is suitable for blackheads or whiteheads.

Step 3

Poke a small hole in the top of the blackhead if you are using a lancet-style blackhead extractor. Then turn the extractor around, and press the hole over the blackhead to remove it. A lancet extractor has a hole on one end and a small knife on the other to pierce the blackhead or whitehead.

Step 4

Press a double spoon extractor into your skin if your blackheads are large. A double spoon extractor is spoon-shaped on each end, with multiple holes to extract the blackheads. Double spoon extractors cause the least amount of skin trauma.
