What is a SaltFacial?
The SaltFacial® is a completely non-invasive skin renewal therapy intended for uniform skin resurfacing with no trauma and no post-treatment redness. It brings together natural sea salt resurfacing, aesthetic ultrasound, and LED phototherapy all in one procedure to stimulate collagen production for a more youthful appearance and even skin tone.
After extensive research into the most effective skincare treatments and the best professional facial machines on the market, The SaltFacial® Class II medical device was designed to offer 3 technologies on 1 platform to use together for The SaltFacial treatment or separately:
- The first step in The SaltFacial® treatment is exfoliation. During this step, natural sea salt is applied to the skin using a patented handpiece with positive-pressure flow technology, which exfoliates and removes dead skin cells, impurities, and bacteria.
- The second step uses cavitation ultrasound technology to deeply infuse the skin with peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid, replacing vital nutrients your skin may have lost over time.
- The third and final step of this anti-aging facial treatment is LED light therapy, which increases collagen production, reduces inflammation and redness, and smooths out skin texture.
What are the benefits of a SaltFacial?
The SaltFacial® skin rejuvenation device can be applied to the face, neck, and entire body. Here are some of the ways sea salt crystals in The SaltFacial® treatment can be beneficial for your skin:
- Deep clean pores
- Remove dead skin
- Balance oil production

Is The SaltFacial® Skin Renewal Therapy safe?
Yes, The SaltFacial® Skin Renewal Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types I-VI, even the most sensitive skin. The sea salt used in the treatment is natural and free of harsh chemicals or abrasive particles, making it gentler than traditional exfoliating methods. The patented lightweight angled handpiece of The SaltFacial® device allows for treatments in and around delicate areas like the eyes and lips. In addition, The SaltFacial® is all-natural so it does not have any of the harsh side effects commonly associated with similar laser and chemical treatments currently available. This quick treatment can be performed at any time throughout the year.
What skin issues can The SaltFacial® treat?
With proper application, The SaltFacial® skin renewal process provides relief for the following skin conditions:
- Acne Scarring

In addition, The SaltFacial® can also be used as a pre-treatment to prepare skin for hair removal, making this versatile device a great addition to any medical aesthetic practice.
How long does The SaltFacial® take? When will I see results?
The SaltFacial® Skin Renewal Therapy patients see results in as little as 45 minutes — with no downtime! With regular treatments, you can expect to see continued improvements in skin texture, tone, and radiance over time.
Why sea salt?
When sea water evaporates, it leaves behind sea salt. This sea salt differs from regular table salt because it contains numerous healing minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Our bodies contain the same concentration of nutrients and minerals as sea water, which is why sea salt is so helpful in balancing, protecting, and restoring skin tissue. In fact, the National Eczema Foundation recommends using sea salt soaks to relieve red and itchy skin associated with the condition.
How often should I get The SaltFacial® treatment?
The suggested frequency of The SaltFacial® treatments depends on your individual skin concerns and goals. For best results, we recommend getting the treatment once a month for a series of three to six sessions and then maintaining your results with periodic treatments.
