Comedone Extraction

Comedone Extraction

It is a process of applying simple mechanical pressure with a comedone extractor, to express the contents of the blocked pilosebaceous follicle.

After cleansing with spirit, the comedone extractor is centred over the comedone and firm downward pressure is applied along the direction of the hair follicle to express the contents.

For closed comedones, the top of the lesion is first pierced with a 21 G needle to make extrusion less traumatic. Some times Radio frequency needle may be used to pierce it more easily and with less trauma
