How To Use Ultrasonic Facial Machines from Trophy Skin

As we age, we often look back at our lives and wish we had taken better care of our skin. Especially when we notice facial lines that weren't there before or see old photographs of ourselves. 

Luckily for today's generation, there are numerous products available that are designed to help bring back that youthful glow. While you can’t reverse time and be 16 again (if only),  you can look timeless — whatever age you may be.

Depending on your skin goals, there are many skincare products from reputable brands that are available today. All you need to do is try whatever is on the market. (Really, it’s that simple!)

Not sure what you need? 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’s been making waves lately. The invention of at-home beauty devices.

That means professional beauty treatments are no longer exclusive to spas and clinics. Now you can do microdermabrasion, ultrasonic facial, and even light therapy in the comfort of your own home.

Ultrasonic facial machines, like the JeNu Plus infusion, are becoming more popular for at-home use. This technology is designed to help your expensive creams and serums work better by enhancing its ability to be absorbed by your skin.

So, how does this simple ultrasonic device do that?

The Buzz Behind Ultrasonic Facial

Ultrasonic facials are probably new to most people, but if you’re fond of going to facial clinics, you may already 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 so they could offer new treatments.  

The machines help increase cellular regeneration which aids in reducing the visibility of wrinkles, plumping areas of the skin that are drooping, reducing puffiness, irritation, and even lightening dark patches of skin, helping clear up acne, and much more.  

This type of treatment is preferred by many people because it is super gentle. People who have sensitive skin have had great results with ultrasonic facial machines.  

Patients who suffer from conditions like Rosacea have even found some relief and haven’t experienced any irritation while using this treatment.

What Ultrasonic Facial Machines Do

Simply put, ultrasonic Facial Machines deep clean your skin 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.

There are other ultrasonic facial devices that focus 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?

Yes! Since we are working with ultrasonic waves, you need a conducting gel to focus the ultrasonic energy in your skin. That’s why we include a travel-size conducting gel with every purchase of the JeNu Plus Infuser. You also may purchase a full-sized conducting gel separately.

Painless Buzzing

When people think about ultrasonic facial machines, they’re often nervous that it will be too noisy and painful for routine treatments. Luckily, this isn’t the case. Even though these devices use sound waves, these sounds aren't irritating to the ears. It’s just a light, humming sound that signals the device is working.

If you’re really sensitive, you may 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 An Ultrasonic Facial Feels Like

If you’re using an ultrasonic skin spatula that exfoliates dead skin, it’s sort of similar to dermaplaning. The difference is that the spatula is not sharp and there is no danger of cutting the skin. You also won’t shave off any facial hair. The spatula will gently scrape off dead skin on the top layer of the skin with the help of water, mist, or steam.

Basically, it's like getting a vibrating massage to clear your skin.

Depending on your skin, we recommend doing ultrasonic facials 1 to 3 times per week. However, this treatment is gentle enough for daily use!

Why Infusion is Important

Skincare enthusiasts invest in serums, ampoules, moisturizers, mists and lotions to keep their skin in tip-top shape. Some see immediate results, while others wait for months to see tiny improvements in their skin. Many also believe their favorite skincare products have simply stopped working for them.

But here’s what’s crucial to remember: 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 well is for it to be fully absorbed. 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 less skincare products.

Instead of waiting for several months and using a few empty bottles of your favorite serum, adding an ultrasonic infuser improves your skincare game. You’ll see results on your first bottle — possibly as soon as two weeks after starting this regimen.

How To Use the Ultrasonic Infuser

The first step is to cleanse the skin. Starting with clean skin ensures there’s nothing blocking your pores.  

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, look for 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’s time to prep the ultrasonic facial machine.
