Do Pore Vacuums Really Work?


Pore cleansing is as important as washing your face twice a day - that’s because a clogged pore is where all the problem starts. Simple face washing alone can’t remove stubborn dirt trapped underneath the skin’s surface. Vacuum blackhead removers effectively remove excess oil, debris, makeup residue, blackheads, and other impurities that can clog pores. Deep pore cleansing is suitable for large pores and acne-prone skin.  


What is a vacuum blackhead remover?  


A vacuum blackhead remover or pore vacuum is a handheld suction device that vacuums out excess oil, blackheads, and dirt from the pores.

It cleans your pores, that simple. Just like other skin renewing methods, using a vacuum blackhead remover also improves the skin by ridding the surface of impurities. A pore vacuum does this by physically removing or extracting what’s inside congested pores, the benefits of which you can see and feel instantly.


Leave congested pores alone and don’t be surprised to find a bunch of blackheads or worse, pimples, in a few days. Luckily, you don’t need to wait until your next skin appointment. These at-home devices allow you to do this treatment by yourself in a more comfortable setting.

It is recommended to do extractions 2 or 3 times a week. Before extraction, softening the top layer of the skin helps loosen debris stuck in your pores. Simply place a hot towel over the treatment area if you don’t have access to a facial steamer. Soft and pliable skin makes for easier and safer extractions. 


Prior to extraction, it is recommended that you test the suctioning power on your palm. Change the intensity level using the on-off button and adjust as needed. Once you’re comfortable with the intensity, you may now use it over the treatment area. Do not hold the suction in one place for longer than 2 seconds to prevent irritation. Also, do not attempt to remove really stubborn blackheads as this may damage your skin. Let it settle and try again in the next session.   


Your skin may be slightly tender and sore after extraction so it’s important to let it rest. Do not apply makeup right away and remember to hydrate. You may use a mild, alcohol-free toner to condition freshly cleaned pores and a cooling mask to relieve the soreness.
