A comedone (blackhead) extractor is a metal tool shaped like a tiny spoon with a hole in the center. It allows you to press on the comedone and release it without damaging the surrounding skin. It may have a loop on the other end or a lance.
If a comedone is large and there is no infection present, you may safely extract it yourself. To do this, you need to soften the skin by taking a hot shower, applying a warm facecloth, or steaming your face over a bowl of hot water. Be sure to clean your face before you begin. Skipping this step may result in damaging your skin.
After softening the facial skin, you position the sterilied comedone extractor's hole over the comedone and press gently. The comedone plug should come out through the hole without damaging the surrounding skin. Take care when using a blackhead extractor as pressing too hard can damage the skin. If the comedone is not easily removed, wait 24 hours until trying again to avoid damage to the skin. Also, be sure to sterilize your extractor before and after each use. After removing a blackhead, apply an antiseptic soothing cream to kill any bacteria that may enter the open pore.

The best way to remove them is by squeezing them after you have softened up your sking with hot water and steam. That's the way spas and salons do it. You don't pinch, you ease them out. If they don't come out easy then they are not ready to go.
