Descriptions of some of the terms used above:
An extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means. Extractions are often performed as part of a facial. Most people need at least a couple of extractions during each facial, though you may require more extractions if this is your first facial. Comedones (blackheads) are the most common reason for extraction. A blackhead is not necessarily “dirt in the pores” as many people think. It is a pore that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. The dark spot which is visible on the surface of the skin is oil which has oxidized and darkened on exposure to the air, like when you slice an apple and allow it to sit out for a while. Pustules and pimples can also be extracted, depending on their size and depth. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted. Some pores may not be ready to be extracted on the first attempt and may require several treatments before they can be cleared.
An adjective that means relating to or involving electric currents produced by chemical action. A galvanic cell, or voltaic cell, named after Luigi Galvani, or Alessandro Volta respectively, is an electrochemical cell that derives electrical energy from spontaneous redox reactions taking place within the cell. This wonderful treatment can be considered a ‘non-surgical face lift’. This treatment involves the use of a device that uses low-level galvanic (electric) current to facilitate the transport of key ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin for improved cleansing, hydration, circulation, and radiance. Recommended for most skin types, including sensitive skin. Some benefits of the use of the galvanic attachment during your facial are: tones muscles, decreases the appearance of age spots, anti-bacterial, helps remove sebaceous blockages and clear congestion that leads to acne, reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps restore sun damaged skin.

Ultrasonic is an adjective referring to ultrasound. Ultrasound is sound with a frequency greater than the upper limit of human hearing (greater than 20 kHz). The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration. Some benefits of the use of the ultrasonic attachment during your facial are: increase cellular turnover, exfoliation, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage.
