Acne surgery: A self help guide.

Early in the morning as you look into the mirror to wash your face, you notice a small red bump in your skin. “What? Where’d that come from?” you ask yourself. A closer examination confirms what you feared. “It’s a *@#$%^ (put your expletives here) pimple!”

Acne is something that we all could do without. Especially in the younger people, acne is a nightmare, a nightmare that is hard to wake up from.

Acne is an infection of the skin, caused by the changes in the sebaceous glands. There are many variations of acne, ranging in severity from mild to severely disfiguring. However the most common one is the called acne vulgaris, which means common acne.  It includes blackheads, whiteheads and papules. Acne is more regularly known as pimples and zits.

It is recommended that you visit a dermatologist if you need to get rid of acne. However, sometimes you may find yourself in a situation that requires you to take immediate action by yourself. Like for instance, you have to go to some place important without any time to spare waiting for a doctor who might not even show up! Sometimes desperate situations demand desperate measures. You’ll have to perform that acne surgery yourself!

To perform an acne surgery, you don’t need any doctorate or beauty certification. You can do it in your own home and at your own expenses!  

First of all you’ll have to ensure you’ve got clean hands and nails. Dirt from your fingers can force bacteria into your pores and cause an infection, leaving you with a bigger bump and, even worse, possible scarring.

Of course you’ll have to wash your face too. Then disinfect a fine needle with rubbing alcohol, and then lightly nick the pimple's surface. Gently squeeze out the contents using a clean tissue.

Do not to squeeze unripe zits. Those relatively safe to squeeze are ripe whiteheads and blackheads. Squeezing papules are a no-no. Papules are inflamed, red, tender bumps with no head. Squeezing a papule will do no good, and may only scar your skin.

Squeezing acne is not the wisest thing you can do. By squeezing one on the surface, you'll also end up squeezing the infection deeper into the skin. If not careful, you could release the same bacteria that caused your breakout in the first place, allowing it to spread to other areas of your face to form even more pimples. If possible, the best thing to do is to wait for it to go patiently.
