What Are Blind Comedones and Treatments?

Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Are my blind comedones leaving scars? I had them for 2 years, and despite attempts by my doctor to extract them, they were deep and solid, requiring laser treatment. After the procedure, there are holes, with one being particularly large. I've attached pictures, one from the day of the procedure and the other from today, one week later. My doctor says it will take time to heal, but I'm concerned about scarring.
