Pimple Popping: Is It Worth It?
- Posted on: Mar 15 2018
There are two types of people in the world: those that pick and those that don’t. Pickers are those that are always picking at their nails, their teeth, and worse of all, their skin. If you are a picker, you more than likely have popped your fair share of pimples and you may, unfortunately, have a scar or two to show for it.
With so much information on the internet, it can be hard to sift through it all to find out the answers to pretty basic questions like, “is a pimple popping bad for you?” Luckily, here at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa, we get rid of the internet sifting and get right down to the answers. Let’s take a closer look.
Pimple popping is a no-no unless it’s done by a professional at a spa-like Cara Mia Medical Day Spa. When you pop a pimple, you are not only spreading bacteria across your skin, but you may also be pushing the bacteria further into your skin which can lead to things like scarring. If you were to leave your pimple alone, it should clear up on its own in under a week on average. If, however, you pick it and pop it, it may take several weeks for it to heal.
As previously mentioned, if you need to have a pimple or two popped, leave it to a professional and contact Cara Mia Medical Day Spa. Because our dermatologists and aestheticians are trained on extractions, we know just how to pop a pimple without spreading bacteria and causing scarring.
