In addition, it is desirable to stop taking anticoagulants, but about this it is advisable to consult with a cosmetologist.

    Also, a specialist may recommend the use of special cosmetics, selected according to your skin type and existing problems.

    How is the procedure?

    How do you clean the face in the cabin? Usually the procedure is carried out in several stages:

    1. Mechanical cleansing begins with removing makeup and cleansing the skin. Beauticians use antiseptics to remove from the surface of the skin not only pollution, but also all pathogenic microorganisms that can penetrate into the epidermis if it is further damaged.
    2. Next, the master can make a warming mask or a hot compress, which will expand the pores and increase the effectiveness of the procedure. Some cosmetologists use special devices vaporizers, dosed and locally supplying steam to certain particularly complex and problematic areas.
    3. Now the cleaning itself begins. The specialist will use fingers or special devices (for example, Uno's spoon) to remove acne, acne or excess sebum by simply squeezing them out.
    4. Next, the face is treated with an antiseptic, necessary to prevent infection of tissues.
    5. Then the beautician will apply a pacifying agent to the face.

    It is worth noting that the procedure is quite painful, so if you are afraid of discomfort, a specialist can offer you a local anesthetic. The duration of one session is on average 30-60 minutes, depending on the condition of the skin.

    After cleaning, there will be redness, swelling, hyperemia, soreness, hematomas and small wounds are likely to appear.

    Care after cleaning

    The rehabilitation period is quite long and difficult. Usually, the skin is fully restored on average in two weeks. To speed up this process and improve its condition, you can use antiseptics, regenerating, anti-inflammatory or sedatives (they can be recommended by a cosmetologist).

    In the first few days it is desirable to abandon cosmetics.

    Within two weeks after mechanical cleaning, it is not necessary to carry out other procedures, to visit swimming pools, solariums, baths and saunas, as well as to use aggressive cosmetics (for example, scrubs).


    The final result will be visible after full recovery of the skin, that is, two weeks after the procedure. The skin will become more clear: acne and acne will disappear, pores will narrow. The face will look more well-groomed, healthy and fresh.


    How much does mechanical cleaning cost? In salons and beauty parlors, such a service is provided for approximately 1000-2000 rubles.
