Whitehead Removal and Prevention

Whiteheads and Blackheads, also called comedones, are one of the more superficial acneiform lesions that can be removed with a device called a comedo extractor and is commonly performed in the dermatology office.  A topical retinoid such as Retin A or Differin can be used daily to decrease the number of comedones and to make extractions easier.  As always, I recommend being evaluated by a board certified dermatologist so a skin care regimen can be tailored to your individual needs.
