Steps 1 and 2 – Cyclone Cleanse and Exfoliation

After removing the makeup from your face, the first step in the treatment process involves Cyclone Cleansing and Aqua Peel Exfoliation. This process gently cleanses the skin and exfoliates the outer-most layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells. This allows the skin to reflect more light, which creates a brighter and healthier appearance.

Next, a special serum is applied to the face, which contains a mixture of Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acid to deliver the benefits of a typical peel without the post-peel scaling and irritation. This phase of the treatment helps loosen deep pore debris and dirt that you cannot get to with regular face washing. In addition, glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acid help prevent the pustules of acne from forming.

The treatment continues with Cyclone Extraction. This step sounds more intimidating than it is in reality. As opposed to a manual extraction, our aesthetician uses what is called a Cyclone Extraction nozzle. This nozzle rapidly circulates liquid that, when applied to the skin, acts as a vacuum to eliminate blemishes like blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores for a completely painless and instantaneous extraction.

Step 3 – Bio-Nutrients Infusion

In this step, our aesthetician uses the Cyclone Infusion tool, which infuses a specially formulated hydrating serum into your skin, rejuvenating and restoring the skin’s suppleness, creating a healthy skin structure and function. This serum contains a pro-antioxidant formula with potent peptides, hyaluronic acid and enriched EGF (epidermal growth factor). This is a detoxification step.

Step 4 – Ion Lifting

This clinically proven technology has been around for 25 years. It is a muscle lifting procedure that uses microcurrent technology to send out tiny electrical impulses helping to tone and soften facial expressions.

‘Microcurrent’ is low-level electricity that mirrors the body’s natural electrical impulses. This tool offers a non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic technique that safely and effectively improves the health and appearance of your skin. When used as part of the Ultrasound Facial, the results can be dramatic, leaving the face with the most natural lift whilst rejuvenating the skin and boosting collagen production.

Step 5 – Radiofrequency

“Radiofrequency is all about stimulating your collagen production. During this treatment, a specific handpiece is used to heat the skin to between 38-40 degrees with radiofrequency, which feels like a hot stone face massage – you feel the heat in the skin, but it is not uncomfortable.

The benefit of this treatment is its ability to stimulate the tightening of collagen fibres. In addition, after the treatment, it continues to promote collagen production over the following 4-6 weeks.

Step 6 – Ultrasound

‘Ultrasonic’ literally translates to sound waves beyond the upper limit of human hearing. During this phase of the treatment, ultrasound is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, promoting cellular renewal, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage and stimulating collagen production. Ultrasound sets off a healing reaction, and your skin gets a mini lift. It also breaks down the particles in serums, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin.

This non-invasive treatment uses non-thermal LED light energy – penetrating your skin at different depths – to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. This innovative treatment has been used by celebs like Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba. Although they are many at-home LED systems, these devices are usually at a fraction of the strength of in-clinic treatments. We offer this revolutionary treatment free of charge to our patients as part of their Ultrasound Facial treatment. We offer our patients treatment with either red or blue light. Blue light kills bacteria that cause acne, and red stimulates collagen production to firm and lifts the skin in addition to its ability to brighten the skin and soften the appearance of age spots.

Your Ultrasound Facial will be carried out by our clinical skin therapist – Caroline. Originally from South Africa, Caroline joined Essence Medical Cosmetic Skin Clinic as a licensed clinical skin therapist in 2021. She has extensive experience in the field of skin health and medical facials.
Caroline has dedicated her career to helping patients achieve total beauty and wellness for their skin and body. She has a warm personality and a very professional way of providing exceptional skin care treatments and uniquely personalised attention to every one of her patients. Caroline’s caring demeanour and passion for delivering outstanding results are consistent and memorable with each treatment and consultation.

Having Ultrasound Facial is a relaxing and pain-free experience. You will feel the suction during the deep cleanse phase, but it will not be painful. You will leave the clinic with your face feeling smooth and supple. This is a ‘no downtime’ treatment, so you can expect to get on with normal activities immediately. In some cases, localised redness may occur, but this will subside very quickly, leaving behind beautifully clear skin.

After your first treatment, your skin will feel rejuvenated and smooth – instantly. Blackheads will be removed, and your pores cleansed, leaving them less prominent. We recommend a course of four treatments, four weeks apart, but it can also be used as a one-off treatment before a party or big event.

This is not necessary at all. Ultrasound Facial is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art facial machine. It is very safe, and the treatment will be carried out by our clinical skin therapist, who has been trained to the highest standard by Dr Bong.

Before the treatment, Caroline will analyse your issues, examine your face and discuss what the procedure entails. Please watch our videos to familiarise yourself with the treatment before you make an appointment.

For best results, our patients come in every month. Unlike some medical aesthetic treatments that can be a little uncomfortable, Ultrasound Facial is a pleasant experience and provides a relaxing break from your daily routine. But, of course, you will still see benefits if you come in less frequently than once a month.

We offer a rapid rescue package of three fortnightly treatments followed by monthly maintenance for patients with severely clogged pores and oily skin. We can also do this for patients who want to treat severely damaged and dehydrated skin.

Yes. We recommend discontinuing retinol and related products three days before your Ultrasound Facial. It would help if you simultaneously avoided any glycolic or other home-based peels. If you use these products, please speak with our staff for specific guidance several days before your treatment.

Microdermabrasion is a procedure which uses an abrasive instrument to sand the skin to remove the outer-most layer gently. Ultrasound Facial is sometimes referred to as ‘hydradermabrasion’ or ‘aqua dermabrasion’. Although it is pretty similar to microdermabrasion, there is a distinct difference between them. Unlike the manual extractions performed through abrasive sanding in microdermabrasion, Ultrasound Facial uses a vacuum tip to cleanse and remove impurities deeply. As such, the Ultrasound Facial method is gentler and more effective. It is also widely known that microdermabrasion can tamper with the skin’s natural colour balance and may leave behind lighter or darker spots. Ultrasound Facial, however, promises to leave behind smooth and even skin immediately.

We charge £85 per treatment. Each treatment includes the following:

45 minutes of Ultrasound Facial, which combines five different technologies: Aqua Peeling; Cyclone Extraction; Ion Lifting; Multipolar Radiofrequency; and Ultrasound

For an extra £15, you can have the following towards the end of your facial:

  1. 10 minutes of LED light therapy
  2. 10 minutes of hand massage

We accept cash or the following major credit and debit cards. We do not accept personal cheques.

We require a nominal deposit of £50 to book an appointment for our Ultrasound Facial. This deposit is non-refundable because an external skin therapist is being brought in specially to carry out the procedure for you. This deposit will be redeemed against your Ultrasound Facial treatment and is not transferrable. Please read our full terms and conditions here.

 

We respect that your time is valuable, and we appreciate that you understand ours is too. Unfortunately, if appointments are cancelled or rescheduled at short notice, or if you do not attend an appointment, we cannot allocate your appointment slot to someone else; however, we still have overheads and staff salaries to pay. Please read our full terms and conditions here.

Please note for all patients, a £50 fee will be charged if you cancel or reschedule ANY appointment (including appointments which do not require an upfront deposit, such as a ‘check-up’ or review appointment) less than 48 hours before the appointment time. Patients who have pre-purchased a course of treatment will forfeit one of the treatments instead of paying this fee.

Late arrival to your appointment may result in reduced treatment time or the forfeiting of the appointment. We will endeavour to ensure that your appointment runs on time. However, for reasons beyond our control, we may need to cancel or postpone your appointment at short notice. In this unlikely event, we will try to contact you in advance. We do not offer compensation if we cancel or postpone your appointment.

Please read our full terms and conditions here.

To help our patients minimise the chance of losing their deposit or pre-paid treatments, we issue text reminders a minimum of 48 hours ahead of appointments. Patients should be aware that there may be reasons beyond our control, meaning that the text message does not reach them. Patients should diarise themselves when making follow-up appointments and not rely solely on the text message from the clinic as a reminder.

This is the best facial I have ever had in my life. After the treatment, my skin feels soft and hydrated. The very next day my mum commented that my skin looked healthier and glowing.

I am so glad I gave Dr Bong's Ultrasound Facial a try. It did not disappoint! I love the treatment! It is so pampering but most importantly, my skin looks and feels amazing. My makeup looks flawless and the occasional break-out on my face has completely stopped. My skin feels clean!
