Benita Adesuyan heads to Manuella Ladies Beauty Salon to try the deep cleansing ultrasound facial.
The promise A thorough, deep cleanse, using Thalgo marine-based products and a high-frequency ultrasound machine to clear the face of spot-producing bacteria.
Step by step After a quick consultation and skin analysis, we lay down on the treatment bed and the therapist cleansed and exfoliated our skin, gently massaging in each product. A steamer blew warm vapour on our face, allowing the skin to soften and enhancing the active ingredients of the cleansers. She then used a small vacuum-like nozzle to gently suck the excess sebum from the pores before performing a careful but somewhat uncomfortable extraction. The high frequency ultrasound machine (a cold flat metal attachment) was then used to kill any bacteria on the skin’s surface. A cream mask was then applied and covered with a fabric mask, designed to heat up the face and deepen the effect of the product. As the mask gently warmed, the therapist performed a relaxing hand and arm massage. The treatment was completed with a toner, serum and moisturiser.
