Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. Black heads appear due to closure of sebaceous gland pore. These need to be removed by using dermabrador. Once these blackheads are removed you should use tretinoin gel. This will help in opening up pores and removing scars. Let me know if you have any other doubts. thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Mishu, The main aim of dermaabrasion is to remove the black heads mechanically. If these are easily getting removed by scrub, there is no need to go for procedure. You can start using tretinoin now itself. Apply tretinoin 0.025% gel in evevning, keep it for two hours wash and sleep. Use sunscreen in morning. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
