Favre–Racouchot disease (FRD) is a common disease characterized by solar elastosis and large open comedones and cysts. This disorder mainly affects elderly Caucasian men who have had a great deal of exposure to the sun. Patients having FRD continuously develop numerous large open comedones that could cause a cosmetic problem. We performed a simple and effective extraction technique for these open comedones using a standard dissecting forceps. This technique is well tolerated and no complications were observed. We suggest this comedone extraction technique as a simple alternative treatment for this common cosmetic problem.
