Re: How do you ger rid .....
You can buy these at the drugstore or pharmacy and do it yourself. Sterilize a needle with rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. Or buy some sterilized lancets while you are at the pharmacy. Like they use to stab your finger to get a drop of blood. Diabetics use them. The lancets are very convenient because they are made with a tab to hold with your fingers and the needle is very tiny and sharp so it works better and is hardly painful at all.
There are many different brands and types of extraction tools so the one you get may not look exactly like mine. In fact I tried several until I got this one that I like the best. Some of the cheap ones are just stamped metal with a hole drilled in the middle. I prefer the fine wire loop.
If you don't want to do extractions yourself and have the money to spend, then, yes, you could go to a dermatologist or see an aesthetician at a salon. I went to the Elizabeth Grady salons for many years and they are very good. I don't know if you have them in your area. Every aesthetician at Elizabeth Grady goes through the same training program so you can go to any salon and know what to expect. At age 35 I had severe adult acne and wow they really helped me a lot. But someone else had to tell me to go because as a man it never ocurred to me to go to a salon but it turns out they have lots of male clients.
