Hello, how to treat deep or even VERY DEEP blackheads? Ones that don't want to fade away or get out (I'm not trying to pick them up, but even if I would do it,it wouldn't work) for a long time? They stay deeply under the skin and I can't get rid of them. Thank You for help! Jan

Treatments for Deep Blackheads
Use of topical RetinA (tretinoin) long-term will definitely slowly improve blackheads, even the deeper ones. Acne extractions done by a professional in the dermatologist's office will also improve very deep blackheads. Lastly, Isolaz (combination of a pneumatic vacuum and laser light therapy) is excellent for improving pores and blackheads. Our patients are very satisfied with Isolaz which requires no downtime and is very affordable.
