What is an Ultrasonic Deep Pore Cleaning?
Why do people go to spas to get facials? For one, most want to have glowing and youthful skin—a facial certainly answers this call. Others want to detoxify their skin; while still other people book facials so that they can feel relaxed while knowing that their pores are being cleansed of dirt and debris. However you look at it, a facial is a highly beneficial treatment on several levels.
The good thing about facials is that as technology advances, the facial evolves. Some new tools and techniques give clients even softer, smoother, and cleaner skin. One such advancement is the deep ultrasonic pore cleansing facial. Becoming immensely popular quickly, the ultrasonic cleaning process proves that technology and spa facials most definitely go hand in hand.
Understanding an Ultrasonic Cleaning
During an ultrasonic deep pore cleansing treatment, the aesthetician will use what is often referred to as an ultrasonic skin scrubber. It is shaped like a small spatula, and as the name suggests, it’s essentially designed to “scrub” the pores clean.
The technology behind it, though, is a bit more complex, uses high-frequency vibrations; the ultrasonic skin scrubber will facilitate the opening of the pores. In this way, it is far easier to remove the dirt clogging those pores. Not to mention, given the spatula design, the dead skin gets exfoliated. Because the tool uses high-frequency waves to vibrate the skin’s cells, even those stubbornly lodged particles become loosened and effectively dislodged during an ultrasonic facial.
What are the benefits of an Ultrasonic Deep Pore Cleansing Facial?
As with any spa facial, the benefits are numerous. Rejuvenated skin, a healthy glow, cleaner and smoother skin. The list here can go on and on. More specifically, however to a deep pore cleaning performed with an ultrasonic skin scrubber are:
- Exfoliation. Dead skin cells build up, leaving skin looking dull and dried out. When getting an ultrasonic facial, this dead skin is removed, leaving the brighter and healthier skin underneath to emerge.
- Improved skin texture. It goes without saying that by eliminating debris and dead skin cells, the overall texture and tone of the skin will be significantly enhanced.
- Shrinks pore size. Tighter, smaller pores contribute to faces looking smoother and younger overall.
- A true deep cleanse. After all, it is called Ultrasonic Deep Pore Cleansing. It is likely among the deepest cleanses for your skin that you can get.
What are the Considerations for Different Skin Types?
Is ultrasonic skin cleaning right for everyone? When it comes to this technology and the use of high-frequency sound waves to help unclog pores, there are a few considerations that you should bear in mind. Skin conditions could affect the type of facial/process that you get.
That said, even those with sensitive skin or rosacea, for that matter, have had beautiful results with ultrasonic deep pore cleansing. Because of the spatula design and the fact that it relies upon vibrations versus more abrasive techniques, it is safe for a wide array of skin types.
However, the key, if you do suffer from more severe skin conditions, is to first consult with a dermatologist or doctor regarding the best course of action to take.
What are the Risks, Drawbacks Associated with Ultrasonic Cleaning?
Are there any downsides to this particular type of spa treatment? What should you be careful of if you opt for ultrasonic deep pore cleaning? One of the main drawbacks comes in the DIY facet of this technology. Yes, people can get ultrasonic skin scrubbers for home use—but that doesn’t necessarily mean they should. The problem comes in incorrect use or overuse, leaving the skin raw, tender, and susceptible to infection. Because this is a relatively new technology, it is best to let a trained aesthetician do the procedure for you.
Some other factors to consider:
- Therapy should be customized to your skin; consulting with your aesthetician before treatment is essential.
- Topical products used with ultrasonic deep pore cleaning need to be gentle.
- It can take more than one treatment to see noticeable results. Everyone’s skin is different, so treatment times and results will differ from person to person.
How do you prepare for Your Ultrasonic Deep Pore Cleansing Facial?
When you book your ultrasonic facial appointment, there are a few things you should keep in mind as you prepare to go in for your session. Generally, you should wash your face with gentle soap and water beforehand while avoiding putting lotions or creams on the surface of your skin before any facial.
Wear comfortable clothes that you can relax in. A facial should be soothing. While it’s not exactly a massage, it is in some ways a massage for your face from which you leave refreshed and looking spectacular.
Before your facial appointment, try and avoid getting too much sun as this dries out your skin and does not result in the optimal surface for a facial.
Make a list of everyday skincare products you use. This will help the aesthetician guide you through a proper skincare regimen—you may want to change a couple of your products to achieve better the skincare goals you are hoping for. Also, mention any medications you may be taking, which can impact the type of skincare products you should use.
Be sure to talk about any concerns before your ultrasonic deep pore cleansing. Again, if you do suffer from a skin condition, it may be best to speak with your doctor or dermatologist first to see what they recommend. If during your treatment at any point you feel uncomfortable, let the aesthetician know immediately so they can make adjustments.
