its hard to tell how your face was prior to the the extractions (did you have acne at all?)... but now it seems like you have severe acne. Go to a derm

i had a few breakouts here and there

it was never as bad as what happened after the facial..

i continued breaking out at all the spots she picked at

and they never heal a pimple always comes back after the previous one healed

wait, when you say they always get a white head and "end up falling off," do they fall off by themselves? Like do they fall off with little force (for instance when you wash your face or rub acne cream on?) If that is the case, you aren't really popping them. Popping is when you basically squeeze the shit out of it to get rid of it

the white heads fall off when i'm sleeping and when i wash my face

i then proceed to squeeze everything out until it stops bleeding

They weren't cautious enough with your skin. Were they extracting just blackheads or did it seem like they were going after whiteheads/inflamed acne as well?

the lady extracted blackheads as well as poking at many many spots on my face saying

that the pores were clogged and she was cleaning them out

but the spots that were picked at are the ones which are always red now..

i never had acne in the spots that she picked at

and they constantly breakout and never heal!!

That's bad...I think you already know that part. The BEST thing you can do right now is to leave it alone and let it heal. Your skin has been through so much already, don't overtreat it, it will make it worse.

yes she picked at active inflamed lesions as well

as picking at my individual pores telling me there was "gunk" in them

and said she was cleaning them out..
