The importance of cleansing our face every morning and every evening is so obvious that we don’t really need to say more here. In case we still do - every day you should wipe your face with a cleansing lotion or wash it with special gel or foam…. Same in the evening - you should revome make up, and then thoroughly clean you skin again. By the way you can find all necessary doctor-approve skin care in the Vremya Krasoty skincare shop which is situated right at the entrance of the clinic.
Will that at-home rituals be enough for the beauty of your skin? Not really.
Once in a while you should do a professional facial cleansing in the clinic.
What exactly is professional facial cleansing?
A facial cleanising exfoliates skin from comedons and dead cell parts. It nourishes the skin, to promote a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and helps to keep skin looking & feeling younger, brighter, and well balanced. Facials are one of the best ways to keep skin beautiful and healthy on an ongoing basis and are very beneficial for acne-preventative maintenance, especially when performed by an experienced, knowledgeable esthetician of Vremya Krasoty.
Types of facial cleansing methods
Any facial cleansing aims at different goals, so the choice is methods is up to your beautician usually, as only professionally educated practiotioner can evaluate your skin needs.
Manual facial cleansing
The deepest and therefore the most effective cleansing. Vremya Krasoty beautician cleans your skin with skincare products, then warms it with vapour to open up pores. Then manually she starts to go through every inch of your skin, pressing gently to relief skin from excess oil and impurities. Anticeptic is applied followed by a calming mask.
Mechanical facial cleansing
The protocol of mechanical facial cleansing mostly coincides with the protocol of the manual one - only that here specially designed spatulas are used to better relief the skin from impurities.
Ultrasound facial cleansing
This method is usually chosen for problem skin. Ultrasound waves penetrate the skin to deep-cleanse, and kill bacteria, while increasing oxygen and blood circulation to underlying tissues (down to 5 mm into the skin layers). Your skin is thoroughly cleansed, revitalized and glowing. This method is usually not-allergic and can be used even on very sensitive skin.
Combined facial cleansing
This is a perfect union of both manual and ultrasound cleansing. It is perfect for patients with open inflammations on their skin which makes it impossible to use a complete manual method. So where it is possible a beautician uses manual method and on other skin zones - all other methods, including ultrasound and water-peel methods.
Laser facial cleanising
Generally reminds of ultrasound method, only where laser is used to target the smallest impurities. It is completely safe and totally painless for patients.
Who should do regular facial cleansing in clinic ?
There are no exceptions - from time to time we all might need it. Patients with oily or problematic skin should undergo professional facial cleaning every 3-4 weeks, those with normal skin should do it every month and a half. Whenever you see that you pores are clogged and acne and small spots are on their way - do not lose time. Polluted air adds to the reasons why every person who lives in a big city should do it every now and then.
How to prepare for professional facial cleansing?
No special measures are necessary. Every types of facial cleansing can leave tiniest scars and redness, which will usually go away in a couple of days, so it is unreasonable to plan any events for the day ater the treatment.
Ultrasound facial cleansing as acne treatment and prevention
Acne can show up on the skin in various forms, including blackheads, papules, pustules and cysts. When acne cysts show up, they could make the skin become swollen and painful, and can cause facial scarring if not treated. To effectively decrease and remove acne cysts, it is very important follow a skin care routine that can help bring the puss of the acne cysts to the surface of the skin, kills off acne-causing bacteria in the pores, and dries up the fluid and puss inside the cysts.
The sound waves produced by the ultrasound facial machine resonate well above our hearing level and move too quickly for our nerve endings to register. The intensive rejuvenating cyclic sound waves penetrate below the skin reaching the dermis and will not cause the user any discomfort or unusual side effects. So ultrasound facial cleansing is the most important step (which must be followed by mesotherapy or other acne-treatment appointed by your Vremya Krasoty beautician), as it prepares your skin for further manipulations.
