Using ultrasonic skin spatulas (or ultrasonic skin scrubbers) has been a popular facial device in day spas and salons for decades. There are a few brands on the market for home use now, but for this article I’ll be referencing the Trophy Skin LaBelle Ultrasonic Skin Spatula for the purpose of comparing this tool with other effective home-facial beauty tools.
What’s an Ultrasonic Device and How Does It Work?
Ultrasonic devices feature vibrations of up to 30,000 Hz, which basically “jiggles” out impurities from the pores as it exfoliates the surface of your skin. It’s also designed to make your favorite skin care serums penetrate your skin more deeply for for maximum absorption and effectiveness. With consistent usage, you can treat the following skin complaints with an ultrasonic spatula:
- Clogged pores
- Excess oil
- Blackheads and whiteheads
- Dry, flaky skin
- Dull skin tone
- Uneven texture
- Polluted skin
But how does it fare against other cleansing brushes, tools and devices? Read on.
1. It’s gentler on sensitive skin.
We have found that women with sensitive skin are our fastest-growing base of customers. If you are also one with sensitive skin, an Ultrasonic Skin Spatula is a wonderful alternative to skin-cleansing brushes and personal microdermabrasion tools. You control the pressure, angle and direction of the spatula to delicately work debris from your pores, focusing on problem areas and exfoliating the skin gently without aggressively brushing or peeling it. Since you are using water or a hydrating toner with the spatula and not a gritty exfoliant, your skin will feel ultra clean and smooth after your treatment.
2. It’s more hygienic to use.
The Ultrasonic Skin Spatula doesn’t use brushes, discs or any abrasive methods that trap dead skin and bacteria like so many other beauty tools. Simply clean your spatula after each use with an antibacterial or alcohol wipe and store in it’s storage case.
3. It makes your other skin care products work better.
Skin care serums are filled with expensive and effective ingredients that promote optimum health for your skin. The problem is, if you are not exfoliating properly and infusing your serum deep into the surface, you serum is just sitting on top and not delivering the promised results. Ultrasonic Infusion helps make the skin care product claims come true for you!
4. Upkeep is more affordable.
This device is easy to clean and store as well. Once you invest in an Ultrasonic Skin Spatula, there are no other ongoing costs—no brushes or blades to replace, and it has a rechargeable battery.
5. It gives you that nice, clean feeling after.
Using the Ultrasonic Skin Spatula and seeing the gunk that has been extracted from your pores is extremely satisfying, and your face will feel squeaky clean without being flushed red from an aggressive “scrubbing.”
