Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:
No, even though popping a pimple may make it seem less noticeable, popping can cause the zit to stay longer. When you pop a pimple, it pushes bacteria from the zit further into the skin, making the area around the acne even more reddened and inflamed. Pimple-popping devices such as blackhead extractors advertised in magazines, aren’t any safer. Sometimes, popping a pimple will cause a brown or red mark that could last months or years. Scars, in the form of dents and pits, can last forever.
