An ultrasonic facial is a gentle yet powerful way to clean any type of skin, and is great for sensitive or thin skin, acne, rosacea, or skin that easily hyperpigments. It is a machine that thoroughly cleans, providing glowing skin, while stimulating collagen (collagen is what makes skin look youthfully plump), infusing essential nutrients, and providing a lifted appearance to the face.
- How it works -
The professional handheld ultrasonic device vibrates at 28,000 cycles per second, which is imperceptible. All you feel is a sweeping movement as the machine moves across your skin, gently removing layers of dead skin cells, thoroughly cleaning pores to make them appear smaller and revealing healthy new skin. I also use the device to gently extract blackheads - the vibrations can make the debris “pop” out of the pore without the discomfort of regular extractions.
After cleansing the skin and clearing blackheads, I use a different setting to deeply infuse nutrients. This is done by applying an organic serum (which is like food for your skin, and is designed to treat rosacea, acne, wrinkles, etc.) then using the device to push the ingredients into the layers of skin. The device also delivers mild current to the muscles of the face and neck, firming them to give you a lifted appearance, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
This technology is recommended by doctors because of its gentleness for sensitive skin, and for use before and after plastic surgery to reduce swelling and puffiness.
See the “Organic Facials” page to view Calm Brooklyn facials that include the Ultrasonic machine, or it can also be added on to any facial.
