Acne is a common skin condition that impacts millions of individuals in all age groups, and involves a variety of problems such as pimples, blackheads, and cysts that occur deep below the skin. Almost all teenagers are affected in some way by acne, but the condition ordinarily goes away after they reach adulthood. Acne presents little health risk, but can result in permanent scars and blemishes. This can cause people to develop low self-respect, and their facial appearance can also produce distress when venturing out in public.
Acne happens when oil (sebaceous) glands connected to the hair follicles are overly active during puberty because of increased amounts of male hormones. Sebum is produced by the body to lubricate and protect the skin. Associated with increased sebum production is a change in the way the skin cells develop so that they are predisposed to block the follicular openings or pores. The clogged hair follicle gradually expands, creating a bump. As the follicle becomes larger, the cell wall may rupture, letting dust, dirt and normal skin bacteria into the deeper skin layers, ultimately producing infection and reddish blemishes that are painful to the touch.
If not immediately removed, blackheads and pimples will get larger, cause even more irritation to the skin around the pore, and will display a more noticeable discoloration. The more time a blackhead stays beneath the skin the more challenging it will be to eliminate. Since these conditions will also happen anywhere on your face, there is no fixed answer to the problem. However, the Stonefield Blackhead, Zit & Under-Skin Pimple Vacuum Extractor is a highly developed personal care device that will always be there whenever you need to look your best. It utilizes pressure on just the tip of the blackhead or pimple to force the head up into the opening. It is just like squeezing with the fingers, but given that the tip of the Vacuum Extractor is so small, it doesn’t affect any of the surrounding tissue. Once the head of the pimple is inside, and one pound of pressure has been reached, the handle releases automatically and the vacuum that is created sucks out the fluid and the core, leaving a very small spot that will heal up quickly.
