Apart from removing your pimple immediately, there are numerous advantages to using a pimple popper to pop your pimples. Some of the advantages of using a pimple popper are:

In spite of its numerous advantages, popping a pimple is not free from challenges. Pimple popping has its downsides too. If not popped hygienically, it may trigger future breakouts. To avoid the risk of infections and scarring it is always better to use a proper pimple popping tool.
By popping pimples with your fingers (or a tissue), you risk leaving additional debris and bacteria in the open pore once you’ve popped the pimple. This could lead to further pimples, infection or scarring.
However, when you use a pimple popper, the whole process becomes much faster, more efficient and more hygienic. Provided that you properly clean your pimple popper before use, the chance of further infection from the bacteria on your fingers is very low.
