Popping pimples or spots is an absolute “no-no” to dermatologists and aestheticians. But we still can’t help but question, “is it really bad to pop pimples? And what are the safe ways to do so?”
Undeniably, it's tempting to pop pimples and it can be oddly satisfying. However, popping pimples causes more damage than good as it leads to the formation of scabs and it leaves behind pesky scars. More so, popping pimples the wrong way can induce scarring and delay the process of healing for our skin.
Generally, a “hands-off” policy is the best choice for acne-prone skin, but if we want to get rid of these pimples fast, we have to consider some treatment regimens and eventually, consult a dermatologist if over the counter treatments don’t work well on our problem. Especially with certain types of blemishes such as papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts, a dermatologist should be contacted so proper procedure of extraction can be made using specialized instruments.
