ENJOY SKIN RENEWAL FROM HEAD TO TOE WITH SALT-BASED EXFOLIATION IN THE PHILADELPHIA AREA

Maintaining luminous, glowing skin isn’t always easy. If your skin is dull, it lacks radiance and is unable to reflect light well. This problem often develops because skin becomes thinner and more fragile as it ages, and dead cells accumulate on the surface more easily. Stress, gravity, daily facial movement, sun exposure, and pollution are also common contributors to lackluster skin. Happily, there’s an advanced method for revitalizing uneven, dull, or acne-prone skin. The SaltFacial® from Philadelphia's Cross Medical Group is the first and only three-in-one skin renewal treatment that exfoliates with all-natural sea salt for the ultimate skin rejuvenation. This comprehensive approach is highly effective for common concerns such as signs of aging, inflammation, irritation, acne, and scars. The SaltFacial® provides meaningful changes to skin quality.

HOW CAN SEA SALT BENEFIT YOUR SKIN?

Is sea salt good for the skin? You may have noticed how vibrant your skin looks after going to the beach. Adding salt to your skincare routine can be the secret to a glowing, radiant look. It can be especially beneficial if you have acne or a dull, washed-out complexion.

Salt is a natural exfoliant that’s great for helping you shed dead skin, as well as calming and brightening your complexion. However, patients who want a safer option that takes the mineral’s exfoliating ability to the next level may want to consider The SaltFacial®.

Additionally, salt has antimicrobial properties and is an excellent tool for deep cleansing. It removes dirt, grime, and toxins to cleanse the skin deeply. Its absorbent properties enable it to reduce congestion in the pores. By reducing sebum, this ingredient can help balance the skin’s oil levels to help you control acne. Salt is also known for helping with hydration and nourishing. As it retains water, salt keeps skin cells plump and hydrated, making wrinkles less noticeable. Sea salt in particular is highly beneficial because it contains numerous skin healing minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium. The SaltFacial® harnesses the healing and regenerative abilities of sea salt for next-level skin rejuvenation in 2023.

WHAT IS THE SALTFACIAL®?

The SaltFacial® is a non-thermal, three-step skin rejuvenation technique. It first utilizes pure, organic sea salt to exfoliate, which helps to detoxify the skin while still maintaining a balanced, healthy pH. This procedure should not be confused with microdermabrasion, since it is not a mechanical exfoliation treatment.

WHAT CAN THE SALTFACIAL® TREAT?

This skin rejuvenation treatment is ideal for correcting several skin conditions, including:

  • acne and acne scarring
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • sun damage
  • stretch marks
  • uneven texture
  • enlarged pores
  • uneven pigment
  • eczema
  • rosacea
  • vascular lesions

WHAT IS THE THREE-STEP PROCESS FOR TRANSFORMING YOUR SKIN WITH THE SALTFACIAL®?

Step One: Sea Salt Exfoliation to Restore the Skin

How does The SaltFacial® work? The patented handpiece delivers the natural sea salt to the skin to exfoliate without the risk of bruising, streaking, swelling, or hyperpigmentation. The salt is so fine, patients are usually barely able to feel it. The exfoliation makes the skin more receptive to moisturizers and other products. This part of the process gently takes off the top layer of skin (stratum corneum). The all-natural sea salt exfoliation helps to balance and prepare skin. The closed loop of pressure the device uses makes it very safe.

Step Two: Replenish Skin with an Aesthetic Ultrasound Treatment

The second step involves using ultrasound at an optimal frequency to stimulate circulation while increasing oxygen levels. The ultrasound energy can be combined with topical treatments like PRP and stem cells to nourish the skin from the inside out. The skin cells become more receptive to hydration due to the effect of the ultrasound. It supercharges the benefits of topical treatments by promoting deep penetration. This helps to replace the nutrients that have been depleted from your skin. Ultrasound therapy promotes the rebuilding of collagen for tighter, firmer skin.

Step Three: Rejuvenate the Skin with LED Phototherapy

The final step consists of using high-powered LED phototherapy for a short time to decrease redness, reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, enhance circulation, promote collagen production, and help the skin to heal at a faster rate. Tone, texture, and color are noticeably improved.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A SALTFACIAL®?

Patients will be asked to refrain from using isotretinoin products for at least six months before their appointment. They should also limit sun exposure for three days before and avoid harsh skincare and exfoliating treatments for two days prior to The SaltFacial®.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THE SALTFACIAL®?

Who is a good candidate for the SaltFacial® treatment? Anyone could potentially benefit from this facial treatment, which is safe for any skin type, including sensitive skin, and is designed for all skin tones. It can also be safely used at any time of the year.

This skin rejuvenation procedure is ideal for addressing early signs of aging, acne, dull skin, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and texture, and age spots. It is often good for everything from basic facials to post-surgical recovery skin treatments. Individuals who are on certain prescription skincare products or have certain chronic medical conditions might not be eligible for the SaltFacial®.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE SALTFACIAL®?

What is the SaltFacial® good for? Is the SaltFacial® worth it? Unlike some other types of skin resurfacing procedures, the SaltFacial®—which is an all-natural treatment—doesn't cause trauma or post-treatment redness. The SaltFacial® is a non-seasonal procedure that can be performed safely on any area of the face and body at any time of the year.

The SaltFacial® treats several common skin concerns, including acne and acne scarring, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, psoriasis, uneven texture, enlarged pores, age spots, eczema, and uneven pigment. Depending on what a patient needs, the SaltFacial® can be adjusted so that it is gentle enough for sensitive skin or as strong as a laser skin resurfacing treatment.

The results from this salt-based exfoliation technique are noticeable right away after the first 45-minute session. Studies have shown that the SaltFacial® is more effective than topical antibiotic treatments, microdermabrasion, and hydrating facials on their own. There is little to no recovery time.

WHAT ARE RECOVERY AND RESULTS LIKE AFTER THE SALTFACIAL®?

Curious about what to expect after the SaltFacial®? There is little to no downtime or recovery time required. Side effects from the SaltFacial® should be expected to be minor. Mild redness and tightness are typical side effects of the SaltFacial®, but they resolve quickly, and patients will be able to resume most normal activities as soon as they’d like.

You will notice an improvement in your skin tone and texture right after this treatment. Furthermore, your skin will be refreshed and rejuvenated. To maximize results, you may need an initial series of treatments. To maintain your best skin, you may want to consider monthly sessions.

WHAT SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE BEYOND THE SALTFACIAL®?

In addition to the SaltFacial®, Cross Medical Group also provides several other types of skin resurfacing and energy-based treatments. These include chemical peels, which involve using a chemical solution to remove the damaged layer on the outside of the skin; dermaplaning, which uses a specialized tool to mechanically exfoliate; laser skin resurfacing, which stimulates collagen production; and AquaGold microneedling, which creates microscopic injuries to trigger the skin's healing processes. Ultherapy® is an ultrasound-based technique that encourages collagen production and causes existing collagen fibers to contract, leading to firmer skin. The SaltFacial® can often be combined with these non-surgical treatments to optimize results.
