    Default Has anyone used a blackhead vacuum remover ?

    I came across these videos on youtube where people suck out sebaceous filaments from their face.
    I was wondering if anyone with rosacea had used one and if it any positive impact on your skin ?
    I assume it would remove demodex so I thought it might be interesting and worth taking a look at
    but I did not want to buy it if it makes the condition worse or has no positive impact on the skin of people
    with rosacea. Video of it in action below:

    A while ago the Isolaz treatment which uses a vacuum along with LED was discussed in this thread. Other than that thread, this has not been discussed as far as I know. If you do purchase one, post some photos and what your experience is using this device. I imagine Dr. Pimple Popper (Sandra Lee, MD) might like this device and probably is aware of it and has a comment or two on it. By the way there is a cheaper version if you want to save money and not have the camera capability.

    Hi Brady, thanks for your response and the link to the cheaper version without the camera. My nose is one of my worst areas for redness and of course there is a lot of blackheads there so I was wondering if there is a link. Although , if there was, then surely someone would have noticed that before. I hope someone with this condition has used it and responds before I spend money on it.

    Blackheads are usually present in acne, not in rosacea. Might want to consider the ZZ cream for your nose.

    I have used the zz cream before. It did not help with my rosacea. Has no one on this forum used a blackhead vacuum remover ?
