I recently went for a facial, a ultrasonic facial and the esthetician told me my skin was good but recommended a skin regimen to help me get that J.lo glow.
But are you wondering what the heck an ultrasonic facial is? ultrasonic Facials use a paddle attached on the end of it that uses a low-frequency ultrasonic vibration to deeply penetrate dirt and grime on the face.Ultrasonic machine is used to loosen dead skin cells. These dead skin cells tend to dry out the skin and cause it to become dull in appearance and sheen. The next step is the peeling process. The machine pulses water into the skin very quickly in order to flush out dirt that has become trapped in the pores. At the discretion of the esthetician, steam may also be used for a ‘deeper clean.’ The third step can be very customized as the esthetician applies a natural Vitamin Serum to the face and then uses the Ultrasonic Facial Machine to penetrate the face very deeply, allowing it to reach deeper places normal serums generally do not. The last step resembles the first step, but differs in that it allows the esthetician to tone and lift the face. Increasing Collagen Production helps to rejuvenate the muscles of the face. Finally, a Finishing Masque and Toner are applied to lock in the natural beauty of the guest’s skin for a healthy and revitalized appearance.The Ultrasonic Facial Treatment is recommended for all skin types, but has shown remarkable results for those with skin problems or acne because the machine works deeply into the skin, allowing deeper cleaning. It is also recommended for those seeking anti-aging benefits because of the fantastic lifting properties associated with the method. An ultrasonic facial can cost up to $200, depending on where you live in the USA but I managed to get mine on Groupon for just $40!Groupon is a great place to find a deal on a facial.
Back to regimen.Well we all know the basics:
No Sun No Smoking

A good regime should also include some great products. Using products with “Glycolic acid” will treat fine lines, acne, blackheads, dullness, oiliness.
