Cavitation peeling is one of the most common treatments performed in beauty parlors. We suggest what is cavitation and when it is worth choosing it.
Indications for cavitation peeling
Cavitation peeling is a gentle procedure, so it works well for all skin types. Cavitation will be suitable for sensitive skin, because it is a painless method of facial cleansing. In case of irritated or vascular skin, it is advisable to consult a specialist who will assess whether the cavitation peeling will be safe.
Cavitation is especially recommended for people with oily and combination skin, because it allows to minimize sebum secretion. This popular treatment can also be used by people whose skin is grayish, tired and lacking in radiance. Cavitation is recommended for fighting minor discolorations, troublesome blackheads and the first signs of aging. Peeling prepares the skin for other treatments, ensuring better absorption of active ingredients.
Who cannot benefit from cavitation?
Cavitation peeling – as any treatment – has contraindications. Pregnant women and people suffering from cancer cannot use the procedure. Cavitation is also not used in patients with epilepsy. People with pacemakers and various metal foreign bodies, for example, braces on teeth, must refrain from peeling. The procedure cannot be performed on skin with fresh wounds.
How does the treatment take place?
Cavitation is performed on moistened skin, therefore after make-up removal the beautician washes the face with a cotton swab. Peeling is performed using a device that ends with a spatula designed to move on the skin. Movements are smooth, and the spatula is arranged at an angle of 45 degrees. Uniform sliding of the device over the skin is extremely important – pressing the spatula may lead to tissue damage, while keeping the spatula in one place for too long may cause burns. During the treatment microscopic bubbles filled with diluted gas are formed on the skin. Due to the action of sound waves they burst, which leads to breaking dead skin cells.
Effects of cavitation peeling
Cavitation peeling takes about 30-60 minutes, during which dead skin cells are removed and lymph and blood flow is improved. The treatment reduces the problem with blackheads, as well as stimulates the skin to regenerate faster. After cavitation skin is cleansed, but also more oxygenated and tighter.
Cavitation should be used in series – the optimal number is one treatment per week for about a month. Regular cavitation peeling allows deep cleansing of the skin, as well as reducing the intensity of discoloration. Thanks to cavitation pores are narrowed and the skin becomes brighter.
