Extractions are one of the most important part of a facial where the therapist removes blackheads and whiteheads from your skin, using either her fingers or tools. However, extractions may potentially cause skin injury if it is not done correctly. Too much pressure can cause broken capillaries on people with sensitive, reddened skin. It can cause dark spots called hyperpigmentation on people with darker skin tone. And inflamed areas should not be extracted, because the infection might spread. Extractions can be painful to someone with lower pain threshold, especially those with thinner skin.
At My Bliss Clinic, we replace extractions with Ionto Sonic Cleansing, due to the reasons above.
What is Ionto Sonic Cleansing?
It is a treatment which utilises ultrasonic waves to remove aged surface skin cells and skin impurities such as whiteheads and blackheads.
Is the procedure painful? Is there any downtime?
The procedure is painless and very comfortable. Unlike extractions, there will be minimal redness and there is no downtime after the procedure. You can return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Who should go for this treatment?
This treatment is suitable for those with:
- Clogged pores
- Comedones ( whiteheads & blackheads)
- Acne-prone skin
Ionto Sonic Cleansing can be done as a standalone treatment. It is incorporated into some of our My Bliss Facials and skin revival programs.
