This spa grade facial uses a specialized ultrasonic/ultrasound machine that emits high-frequency waves to cleanse and repair the skin. The micro vibration permeates deep into the tissues, stimulating skin cells and sparking an accelerated rejuvenation.
This "Ultrasonic Facial" process is gentle, non-invasive, safe and suitable for all skin types, from Acne to Rosacea and Mature skin. Even the most sensitive skin will benefit from these treatments without any significant redness. Any redness that does occur diminishes rapidly after treatment. Anyone living with a chronic health condition should check with their physician before proceeding with any esthetic treatment.
