Use a Blackhead Suction Remover

Blackhead suction removers can be used to clear your skin and prevent additional blackheads from arising. They are available from a number of beauty products manufacturers and are easy to use as part of your skin care routine.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Purchase a blackhead suction remover from one of many companies that make them and stores that stock them. Amazon also stocks a variety of them on their site for side by side comparisons and easy, discreet purchasing. Carefully read through the instructions, warnings and tips contained within the box to ensure you use it correctly and safely.

  2. 2

    Install the batteries into the battery compartment and turn it on to make sure it is working properly. Some pore suction cleaners are different but they use the same basic principles. Use the nose suction end to go around the crevices of your nose. This area is known to store oil and dirt and can be hard to keep clear.

  3. 3

    Wash the suction completely in hot water with antibacterial soap and dry completely. Turn the cup over and re-install on the suction device. This larger side is to be used on the forehead, cheeks, chin and other less-tender areas of the face. Place the suction against your skin and turn the device on.

  4. 4

    Slowly move the suction device across your skin, being mindful not to break suction nor allow it to sit in one place too long. Excessive suctions could harm your pores or cause blood vessels in your face to break, resulting in bruising or spidery-looking veins.

Tips and warnings

  • Many dermatologists do not recommend these pore and blackhead suction devices. If you have sensitive skin, deep or extreme acne, see a dermatologists for treatment.
