Also, it allows getting to the closed acne and the sebaceous gland opening. Manual cleansing of the face is completed with the mechanical one using special tools, such as a spoon UNO, Vidal needle.
Ultrasonic facial cleansing is a machine cleansing of the skin by ultrasound waves. It is a gentle and non-traumatic procedure. This type of cleansing is recommended for normal, sensitive or combination skin.
