How to Extract Pimples using LEROSETT® Spot Treatment & Clearing Mask



How to Extract Pimples:  From the time we start experiencing breakouts, generally, in our teenage years, we’ve always been told the same thing: Never pop your pimples!  WRONG!

If the extraction process (popping pimples) is done correctly and carefully, you can successfully extract pimples and easily remove blackheads without harming your skin. Remember, never try to pop a pimple with no visible yellow infection on top or that has not come to a head. Suppose you attempt popping an undeveloped pimple or lesion. In that case, this may lead to a deeper infection because the infection goes deeper down, not up, and can cause more significant inflammation and scarring. The pimple is not ready if nothing comes out, even when you squeeze hard.

Blackheads are the easiest to remove when you learn how, and physically removing them is the only real way to deal with them; there is no magic sticky tape. Blackheads must be extracted.  However, once removed, LEROSETT® will prevent blackheads from returning.

Helpful tips on how to correctly extract a pimple or blackhead are listed below:

LEROSETT® Spot Treatment & Clearing Clay Mask can stop a pimple or shorten its lifecycle by 70%-80%, making a 10-day pimple last about 2-3 days. Or not at all. The earlier you catch a new pimple coming, spot treat it immediately, the better. 

3 Helpful Tips! 

Stop a Pimple #1 – When you notice a new pimple before it turns red, immediately spot-treat it with LEROSETT® several times in 24 hours. Minerals within LEROSETT®, like zinc, help prevent the sore area from becoming a pimple. 

Remove a Pimple #2 –Once the pimple is red, painful, and infected, spot treatments will pull the infection to the surface faster so that it can be extracted and start to heal. 

Stop the Scar #3- After extraction, spot treats multiple times and overnight for 24 hours; this will absorb excess puss & fluid. LEROSETT® dries & tightens the opening and will help close the opening left from the extraction, thereby preventing scabbing and scarring.

  1. Make sure your hands are clean.
  2. Steam your face for 5-10 minutes either in the shower or over a hot water bowl (put a towel over your head to trap in the steam). This will loosen the pores and make the extraction process less painful. Be careful not to scald yourself during this step!
  3. Optional: Massage the infected area for a few minutes to release tension.
  4. Prick the top of a pimple with a sterilized needle or lancet, don’t use anything else.
  5. Wrap fingertips with tissues or a cotton pad for grip.
  6. Place wrapped fingers on both sides of a pimple and use a rocking or rolling motion to start the extraction process.
  7. After a few pushes, if nothing comes out, stop pushing! 
  8. When a pimple is ready to be extracted, it won’t require a lot of pressure.

After the pimple is extracted.

1- Stop pushing when you see blood or clear fluid.
2- Wipe away any fluids and use an astringent to disinfect the skin, like alcohol and a cotton pad.
3- Use LEROSETT® Spot Treatment & Clay Mask or apply it as a spot treatment. Moisturize the skin

We do not recommend extracting aggravated, inflamed, or infected acne lesions. Just keep spot treat it several times per day and night; this may worsen the acne and cause more breakouts and scarring. Also, it is critical to leave painful lesions and deep cysts alone. Do not try to extract these blemishes. You may apply LEROSETT® Spot Treatment & Clay Mask to a pimple several times a day to prevent swelling and keep the blemish from becoming more inflamed.

The extraction process may be extensive, but if done correctly and carefully, you may be able to rid yourself of whiteheads and/or blackheads without irritating the skin. If you are unsure about your skin condition, always seek advice from a physician or skincare specialist to confirm that you have acne and not one of many other skin conditions that can look similar to acne.

By Definition:  Having a few pimples is not acne. Acne is a chronic, incurable skin disease that causes permanent skin scarring; you can grow out of it. Most people who have pimples do not have an incurable skin disease. Every teen in America has pimples; not every teen has an incurable skin disease. These days, real acne is defined as cystic acne that leaves scars, lots of big, painful cysts that leave scars and are always there. The term problem-skin should be used more often than acne. No matter how you handle your pimples, LEROSETT® Spot treatment is a valuable tool in preventing a pimple from starting, either by using the clay as a mask to prevent pore clogging, reducing oil production or as a spot treatment.

Plus, LEROSETT® is 100% Organic; you can use it as often as you want; remember to moisturize.
