The Stonefield Acne Vacuum Extractor is a well-designed, manually operated, one-of-a-kind device. It consists of four sections: the handle, plunger, lower vacuum chamber and tip. The tip MUST be soaked in hot water to soften and sterilize it before each use. If this step is not taken, the special silicon rubber compound will not be flexible enough to mold around the pimple and loosen the head to force it up inside the tip. Without a tight seal, an effective vacuum cannot be created and the device will not work properly.
1)The tip with the smallest orifice is used to extract blackheads. If you are a person who develops extremely deep blackheads, please email us and we will send you a free suction tip especially designed for this type of problem.
2) The tip with the medium size orifice is designed for extracting regular red and white acne.
3) The tip with the largest orifice is for extracting large whiteheads or cysts.
If the blackhead or zit appears on the nose or soft area of the cheek, please insert a finger into your nostril or a small fruit in your mouth to provide a solid foundation. Some acne is so deep that it will require more than one attempt to completely suck out the core. The mark left by the suction tip will disappear within minutes. The tips are naturally fuzzy-looking and must be kept clean and sterilized with alcohol after you are finished using them. Storing them in the plastic container will keep them sterilized and ready to use the next time you need them.
The lower vacuum chamber can be pulled out and both it and the upper chamber can be easily cleaned with hot water. The piston should be occasionally lubricated with olive oil or Vaseline to keep it moving smoothly. You can also increase the vacuum force by gently tightening the nut at the end of the piston.
