Logic tells me that the suction wouldn't be enough. It's only a double or aaa battery handheld device.

I'm probably wrong.

Yes and no. The do it yourself ones for £10 don't remove deep rooted blackheads. Professional ones are much better.

Seeing a professional is important because If the suction is too hard you can bruise your skin and break blood vessels which can only be fixed with laser. Professionals can adjust the suction for thinner skin.

There's a technique to pore vacuums just like comedone extractors. When these are done properly there should be no other problems like broken blood vessels, which honestly are more noticeable than blackheads.

The inexpensive pore vacuums are bad for you. Look what I found...


"....the blackhead cleaners tend to be lower-grade tools than the electric pore cleaners used by professionals."

‘The devices also have a safety mechanism to release suction and break connection from the skin without causing much damage to the tissues.’ (professional ones used by dermatologists)
