Waterjet facials and what are they?
The oxygen Waterjet facial is a painless and natural treatment procedure aimed at improving the skin’s texture and appearance in a rapid manner. The technology used is the Water Jet Oxygen Peel and it delivers excellent results from the first session without pain or incisions. The process is simple, a combination of pressurized air, oxygen molecules and negative oxygen ions are accelerated into a jet of microdroplets and projected onto the face. This jet is used to painlessly cleanse and exfoliate the skin, improve circulation, create a level of moisture and tone the skin. Each treatment has an adjustable level of pressure that is suited for your skin. This unclogs the pores and removes debris from the skin. The common areas that this procedure is used on is the neck, face and décolletage as well as the legs and abdomen.
The science behind the procedure
Using a combination of salty water and oxygen, the procedure unclogs the pores of debris that has collected over a period of time. It exfoliates the skin, removes dead skin cells and extracts any impurities via a vacuum-based skin abrasion tip while simultaneously giving the underlying skin active serums to provide a deep cleanse and complete hydration. The reason behind the procedure’s immense success lies in the machine tips used as well as the use of formulated serums. These machine tips are patented and have a constructed spiral that is multifaceted. These allow the serums to be in contact with the skin longer and provide superior exfoliation through their multiple plane surfaces. The result is a radiant, refined, moist and polished looking skin surface.
Where can the treatment be used
While it is more commonly used on areas like the face, neck and chest area, the procedure can easily be done on any area of the body that would require a deep cleansing and hydration. These areas include the feet, hands, back and elbows.

The number of sessions needed varies from person to person depending on the person’s skin condition and their desired results The Waterjet facial treatments are usually performed every 10 to 30 days and maintenance treatments are scheduled as and when needed.

The previous two steps allow for easy removal of blackheads, whiteheads and sebum without pain.
The unique design of the spiral tip allows for the delivery of hydration to the skin to improve issues like wrinkles, fine lines, oily skin and hyperpigmentation.
