Scottsdale, AZ - "Just Stop It. Don't Pop It." That might be the easiest thing to tell teenagers when their faces are invaded by pimples, but teens are going to do what they do -- so why turn this mess into a really zitty situation?
"I don't recommend that teenagers pop pimples, but to mislead the American public into thinking that cellulitis will to occur from every zit they pick is going overboard," said Natalya Borakoski.
The owner of Desert Bloom Skincare in Scottsdale, AZ. and licensed aesthetician is citing a news article that strongly suggests that a repetitive habit of popping pimples increases the likelihood of cellulitis. "That's just not true. It's very unlikely to develop this infection from simply popping a pimple."
Cellulitis is a staph infection where tissues underneath the surface of the skin are affected. In some severe cases, it has been known to cause organ failure or result in death. "The odds of this happening only increase for a teenager if their immune system has been compromised. This typically occurs when they are suffering from prolonged sickness or have developed an auto-immune disease. Recreational drug use can also suppress the immune system."
Borakowski says the greatest potential threat of cellulitis comes from popping pimples near lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are located in front and behind the ears -- along the neck, jaw, and eyes. "The eyes are a very common entry point for bacteria to invade a person's body, especially if they are young children."
Although the threat exists, the odds of contracting cellulitis are so insignificant that it won't scare kids from repeating the generational habit of popping pimples. ” I would love to tell my teenage clients just don’t pop it, but I know for a fact they will anyway. So instead, we have some popping rules. Only pick at night. Only pick white heads. If you don’t see white, do not touch. Never touch your face during the day. Wash your hands and face before you do it. Apply topical acne medication after you done. "
