This process involves manually removing blackhead one by one. A metallic extractor with an opening towards the end is used for this purpose. However, this method is not really advised for blackheads around the lips and mouth corners. This is because the skin on these areas are extremely gentle and extraction is not a very tender way of dealing with blackheads.
The different types of blackhead extractors are:
Blackhead extractor with lancet
This is the most common type of extractor used by doctors as well as in the households. It has two ends- one to make the hole and the other to excrete the dirty materials out.

This tool has an end which is spoon shaped with numerous holes basically for removing the small blackheads. For the larger blackheads we have to first use the lancet and then only use this tool for throwing out the materials.
