Updated January, 2020.
As we age, we often look back at our lives and wish we had taken better care of our skin. Especially when you start noticing facial lines that weren't there before or when you unearthed old photographs. You miss your youthful appearance and realize how quickly time flies.
Luckily for today's generation, there are numerous products available that are designed to help bring back your youthful glow. You may not literally reverse time and be 16 again however you can look timeless whatever age you may be.
Depending on your skin goals, there are many skincare products from many reputable brands that are available today. You need not concoct your own beauty potion because many skincare companies have done that for you. All you need to do really is try whatever is on the market. (Like it's that simple!)
Hyaluronic serums are great for plumping the skin. Tea tree serums are great to combat acne. If you need to brighten your complexion, a dose of vitamin C serum will definitely help. Like we said, whatever you need, it will be on the market. You just have to find what works for your skin type.
Aside from skincare products, there is also another branch of the beauty industry that has been making waves lately. The advent of the at-home beauty devices.
Gone are the days that you only experience professional beauty treatments at spas and professional clinics. Nowadays, you can do microdermabrasion, ultrasonic facial, and even light therapy at the comfort of your own home.
Something that many people have been exploring lately is the use of an ultrasonic facial machine like the JeNu Plus Infusion. This technology is designed to help your expensive creams and serums work better by enhancing its ability to be absorbed by your skin. (Your skin is a barrier!)
So, how does this simple ultrasonic device do that?
The Buzz Behind Ultrasonic Facial
Ultrasonic facial might be new to most people but those who are fond of going to facial clinics might be familiar with this treatment. In fact, our Ultrasonic Skin Spatula is the home-version of this popular spa service.
Ultrasonic facial machines were not initially designed for at home use. They started as a product for salons to use as people sought new treatments.
The machines help increase cellular regeneration which will help reduce the visibility of wrinkles, plump areas of the skin that are drooping, reduce puffiness, irritation, and even lighten dark patches of skin, help clear up acne, and much more.
This type of treatment has been preferred by many people because it is gentle. Even people that have sensitive skin that has failed with other treatments have found results with using ultrasonic facial machines.
Patients who suffer from conditions like Rosacea have even found some relief and has not experienced any irritation while using this treatment.
What Ultrasonic Facial Machines Do
Ultrasonic Facial Machines can deep clean your skin, exfoliate, extract pore clogs and infuse skincare serums.
The spatula lightly exfoliates the skin while the ultrasonic waves help remove deep-seated dirt, oil and pore clogs. After extraction, it is followed by infusion wherein the ultrasonic spatula gently taps skincare products into the skin for better product absorption.
Another type of ultrasonic facial device focuses on just applying serums and creams on the skin. This is what the JeNu Plus Infuser does.
Instead of just sitting on the top layer where it could evaporate or get wiped off, the infuser along with the conducting gel, pushes your favorite skincare product deep in your skin.
Is the Conducting Gel Necessary?
Because we are working with ultrasonic waves, you need a conducting gel to focus the ultrasonic energy in your skin. That is why, we included a travel-size conducting gel with every purchase of the JeNu Plus Infuser. You may purchase a full-sized conducting gel separately.
You may think that's just a gimmick or an added cost but here's a quick demonstration on why using the conducting gel with the infuser is a must!
When people think about an ultrasonic facial machine they are often nervous that it will be too noisy and painful for routine treatments. However, this is not true. Even though these devices uses sound waves, these sounds aren't irritating to the ears. It is just a light, humming sound that signals the device is working.
Although for some people, they might hear an uncomfortable buzzing especially when the ultrasonic device passes on the bony prominences of the face that radiates the sound waves to the ears.
However, treatments are often short, about 5 minutes, and the sound waves are within safe levels for at-home use. Unless you have a medical condition that prohibits the use of ultrasonic devices, ultrasonic facials are safe for everyone.
What Ultrasonic Facial Feels Like
For ultrasonic skin spatulas that exfoliates dead skin, you can think of it as something similar to dermaplaning. The difference is that, the spatula is not sharp and there is no danger of cutting the skin.
Also, you will not shave off facial hair (that might lead to peach fuzz!). The spatula will gently scrape off dead skin on the top layer of the skin with the help of water, mist, or steam.
It also purges the pores of debris, oil, sebum, and even blackheads and whiteheads! It's like getting a vibrating massage to clear your skin.
We recommend doing ultrasonic facials for 1 to 3 times per week depending on your skin but this treatment is gentle enough for daily use!
For ultrasonic infusers, think of it as a device that massages your precious serums deep in your skin. It focuses ultrasonic energy to push the serums on the layers of the skin. This way, the active ingredients in your skincare gets to the layers where it can do its magic instead of just sitting on top of your skin.
Why Infusion is Important
Skincare enthusiasts invest in serums, ampoules, moisturizers, mists and lotions to keep their skin in tip-top shape. For some, they see immediate results while others wait for months to see tiny improvements in their skin. Some would think their favorite skincare products have stopped working for them.
Again, your skin is a natural barrier and most skincare products have active ingredients that are made up of big particles. Instead of being absorbed, it just sits on top of the skin. Some evaporate or dry up. Others contribute to the gunk that clog pores.
The key for a product to work on the skin is for it to be absorbed well. It has to get into the lower layers of the skin where the active ingredients can do its work. You may dab your serum by hand, but infusing them is a better option.
With the use of an ultrasonic facial machine, skincare products can be absorbed quicker and deeper. This not only helps the skin look and feel healthier, but it can also help people get a better return on their investment.
When products get into the lower layers of the skin, people can see results earlier. This gives better value for your money and you end up using and buying lesser skincare products.
Instead of waiting months and a few empty bottles of your favorite serum, adding an ultrasonic infuser improves your skincare game. You see results on your first bottle, maybe a couple of weeks after starting this regimen.
It is truly an ingenious way to level up your skincare game.
How To Use the Ultrasonic Infuser
The first step to the process is to cleanse the skin. Starting with clean skin is key to make sure that there is nothing blocking your pores from the products you are about to apply on your skin.
Use a mild cleanser to prevent stripping your skin of natural oils. If you have oily skin, opt for gel or foaming cleansers. For dry skin, go for cream-based cleansers. If you have acne, you may try cleansers with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
You may also use a toner fit for your skin type after cleansing.
Next, apply your skincare topicals. If you are using several products altogether, layer it from thinnest to thickest. You may start with your favorite serum and then seal it with your moisturizer.
Next, it is time to prep the ultrasonic facial machine.
