What are Extractions?
Facial Extractions clear individual clogged pores by removing blackheads and whiteheads to prevent acne problems and promote clearer, healthier skin. By removing the buildup of sebum and other impurities, your face can be restored to its natural beauty, and your skin and pores can begin to heal.
While all of our Mod Facials include optional Extractions as part of your visit, this modality takes the process even further by adding extra Extractions to your facial for a comprehensive cleansing and a vibrant, rejuvenated face.

What Are the Benefits of Extractions?
Expertly performed by our Mod Facial estheticians, facial Extractions can be a game-changer for your skin, ensuring that your face remains clean and beautiful until your next visit. Extractions are not just about clearing existing acne; they offer a wide range of benefits for your face and skin:
- Clearer Skin: Promote healthy skin by directly removing blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities that can cause acne.
- Reduced Pore Size: Help minimize the appearance of large pores over time.
- Improved Skin Texture: Removes blockages so your skin will feel smoother to the touch.
- Enhanced Skincare Absorption: Clears the way for skincare products to penetrate deeper, making them more effective.
- Prevention of Future Breakouts: Keep pores clean to prevent potential infections and breakouts in the future.
Making regular visits for consistent facial Extractions is the best way to keep your face feeling beautiful, fresh and healthy. Why not try a Mod Facial Membership for monthly treatments?

What Should I Expect During My Appointment for Extractions?
When you arrive at Mod Facial for your facial with extra Extractions, you’ll have a brief consult and skin assessment with one of our skincare professionals. The process then starts with a thorough cleansing of the skin to remove any makeup or residue, followed by steaming to open up the pores and soften the skin.
Once prepped, your esthetician will apply gentle pressure or use a specialized tool to extract impurities. The sensation can be a bit uncomfortable for some, but it’s typically quick and relatively painless.
Post Extraction, a soothing mask will be applied to calm your skin and reduce any redness before applying moisturizer and sunscreen. Some redness is normal after the procedure, but it should subside in a few hours.
In addition to your facial with the extra Extractions, all Mod Facial services include the following:
- Skin analysis
- Optional extractions
- Hot Towels
- Oxygen Serum/Mask
Are Extractions Right For Me?
While many of our Mod Facial guests can benefit from extractions, especially those with acne-prone skin, it’s not a universal treatment. People with severe forms of acne, like cystic acne, or those with other skin conditions, might find extractions too aggressive.

Q: How often should I get extractions?
A: For people with acne-prone skin, monthly sessions are the best to keep your face clean and clear consistently. Learn more about our Mod Facial Membership and get a regular appointment for a facial with extra Extractions on the calendar each month.
Q: Will extractions leave scars on my skin?
A: When done correctly by our team of trained skincare professionals, Extractions should not cause scarring. However, picking at or trying to extract pimples and clogged pores at home can lead to scars.
Q: Is there any aftercare after Extractions?
A: Yes. It’s essential to keep the skin clean and avoid heavy makeup for at least a day post-Extraction. Sunscreen is a must, as the skin can be more sensitive to UV rays.
Q: Can I wear makeup after my extraction appointment?
A: It’s best to let your skin breathe and avoid makeup for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
Q: How long will my skin take to heal post-extraction?
A: While minor redness is normal and subsides within a few hours, the complete healing process, especially from active breakouts, can take a week. Regular skincare and sun protection can aid the healing process as well.
