What Is A Glass Facial? (And Why Is It the Hottest New Skin Treatment?)

Curious about what a Glass Facial is? We asked registered nurse Katrina Freeman from SSKIN Clinic about this new treatment and what you can expect when you book in for this treatment.

What is a glass facial?

A glass facial is a skin booster of injections that consist of micro-injections made of HA with microdose toxin. The glass facial is known to leave a powerful hydrating, smoothing, glowing and plumping effect whilst also reducing pore size and assisting with a mild tightening effect.

You can obtain what’s called the “glass skin” effect, whereby pores are dramatically diminished. This treatment is ideal for clients seeking a smoother, more youthful appearance, perfect to get done before a big event such as a wedding or just for everyday appearances. Microchanneling treats the superficial layers of the skin to provide a modest but noticeable improvement in skin texture, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, pore size and increased collagen production.

What are the benefits?

This treatment is ideal for clients who are wanting to achieve:

• Deep level skin hydration
• Hydration, clarification, refined pores and rejuvenated skin
• Smooth skin texture and tone with dermal hyaluronic gel
• Smooth wrinkles with micro antitoxin solution
• Reduce sebum production in oily skin and T zones
• Able to treat the periorbital region, face neck and decolletage

This treatment is not a replacement for anti wrinkle or dermal fillers but instead compliments rejuvenation treatments to improve overall skin health. Treatment results can be seen within 7 days after and typically last approximately 3 months (depending on your lifestyle and overall skin quality). The procedure can be done as often as every 6-12 weeks, and doing several treatments throughout the year will continue to improve long term skin quality.

What to expect during the treatment

A topical numbing cream is applied to the treating area to provide relief throughout, the device used for this treatment utilises the latest technology with micro needles and suction to stimulate cell renewal in the upper layer of the skin through gentle punctures, while the hyaluronic acid and microdose toxin is dispersed in the dermis to improve results.

Is There Any Downtime?

You can expect mild bruising, swelling and redness however this will commonly resolve within 7 days. We would recommend having this procedure done 4 weeks prior to a special event.
