it depends on your skin and whos doing the extractions. sometimes im red and blotchy after a facial with extractions, sometimes my skin is glowing the next day. even if your red and blotchy, it goes away quick, then the glow comesomg ive never had a facial, but this sounds too good to be true! so someone "extracts" your blackheads? i have so many small ones on my nose. i hate talking about it! lol not visible unless under the magnifier, but i see them!!!! i would if after the facial you are red and swollen from them "extracting" things from your face?
