All You Need to Know About Extraction Facials

My Cozy Room aims to provide you with professional advice and guidance as you embark on your journey towards acne-free and flawless skin. We have received many questions about extraction facials so here’s all you need to know about extraction facials!

If you have any enquiries, you can reach out to us via email or our social media accounts and we will try our best to answer any questions.

Are facial extractions good for your skin?

Facial extractions involve the removal of gunk and debris that have accumulated in your pores, allowing your skin to breathe and preventing future breakouts. Your skin will benefit from the regular cleansing and nourishing and you will notice a reduction in acne and clogged pores. Skincare experts recommend going for facials at least once a month to help you achieve clear and acne-free skin!  

Will an extraction facial help if I have acne and pimples?

My Cozy Room offers professional extraction facial treatments done by skilled therapists who have gone through intensive training and quality checks. Our deep cleansing and exfoliation process eliminate pore-clogging debris while our signature manual extraction targets current breakouts and effectively prevents future flareups and inflammation. 

Why do I have pimples after an extraction facial?

There are a couple of reasons why people get pimples after extraction facials but one of the most common reasons is that there is already a blemish forming under the skin. During the facial, the blemishes under the skin are pushed to the surface with exfoliation and steaming. It is common to also experience breakouts if you have not been to a facial in a long time or if it’s your first time doing an extraction facial. However, do not be alarmed! The pimples will heal quickly with an effective anti-inflammation acne cream.

Is it bad to extract my blackheads and whiteheads during extraction facials?

Extracting blackheads and whiteheads will allow you to achieve a clear, poreless and even complexion. Blackheads are open comedones, hence extracting them does not require us to ‘break’ the surface of your skin. On the other hand, whiteheads are closed comedones, which mean that the surface of the skin must be ‘broken’ to extract it. You can be rest assured as our trained therapists are qualified to remove both whiteheads and blackheads professionally. Both blackheads and whiteheads are an initial sign of acne and it is important to remove them regularly by professionals to keep your skin clean.

Will an extraction facial heal the acne scars on my face?

While the extraction process will not heal the acne scars on your face, the products used during the facial will help to lighten and reduce the scar’s appearance. If your main skin concern is acne scars, we recommend our facial treatments that involve LED light therapy or cryotherapy.

How can I extend the effects of an extraction facial for a longer time?

The first step to extending your acne-free post-facial glow is proper post-facial skincare! Our therapists are trained to give product recommendations, so feel free to check with them on what is suitable for your skin. After all, they have been working on your skin for a long time and know what your skin needs to maintain your peak post-facial look.

How many days before should I go for an extraction facial before an event?

We recommend going around one week before an event so that your skin can heal from breakouts that may come from the opening of your pores. This will allow you to be at your best during the event.

What kind of skincare products should I put on my face after a facial extraction?

Your skin becomes more sensitive after a facial, hence it is crucial that you do not use harsher skincare products that contain exfoliating ingredients that may aggravate your skin. Instead, we recommend using gentle and hydrating products that strengthen your skin’s natural barrier.

We recommend using BeKind’s Purifying Cleanser, a botanical-based pH5.5 cleansing gel that relieves blemished and sensitive skin while restoring the natural, ideal skin pH.

We also recommend BeKind’s Microsilver Acne Treatment, a potent anti-acne cream that promotes the fast healing of acne while soothing inflammation. 

Are extraction facials recommended for sensitive skin?

Yes! Generally, all skin types can benefit from extraction facials. We only use professional-grade skincare products that are suitable for even acne-prone and sensitive skin types and our therapists are also trained to treat various skin conditions. You may drop us an enquiry if you have certain concerns and our therapists will advise you on the recommended treatment.

Will extraction facials leave acne scars?

When done right, extractions should not leave any acne scars. However, marks are a normal side effect of extractions due to the pressure on the skin and are temporary. Our therapists are trained to recognize which types of acne can be extracted safely without scarring, as well as thoroughly extracting the gunk from your pores so that the effects you experience are minimised.

What type of products are used during an extraction facial?

My Cozy Room only uses professional-grade skincare products from BABOR during the extraction facial. BABOR is an internationally acclaimed brand with over 60 years of experience in the beauty market. We also use BeKind, a local luxurious skincare brand formulated to suit local skin conditions, like maskne, acne, clogged pores and sensitive skin. Rest assured that your skin is only pampered with the most luxurious of products that have gone through seamless research and testing.
