Expression of open and closed comedones by trained medical personnel.

This section has been translated automatically.

Comedones are best squeezed out after the application of face masks and steam baths. Closed comedones are incised with a small calibre cannula or fine lancet and carefully squeezed out from below. Open comedones can be expressed directly. The acne toilet should be carried out by a doctor or an experienced beautician to avoid a wrong technique and associated inflammatory tissue reactions.
