Acne surgery best for clogged pores nyc new york ny

Acne surgery refers to a method to remove clogged pores or blackheads. Usually the top of the blackhead is pierced with a small tipped lancet and then lateral pressure with gauze covered fingers or a small extraction tool is applied to extract the clogged material within the pore. Sometimes this is combined with steaming or chemical peel to help loosen the pores. This procedure is sometimes covered by insurance - particularly if you are younger than 25. It is not a cure for nodular acne but can be helpful in clearing blackheads that are not clearing with topical medications.
