The SaltFacial achieves promising results in treating multiple skin conditions.
A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical and Cosmetic Dermatology evaluated the safety and efficacy of a novel 3-technology platform as a single session treatment for anti-aging, acne, infection, and wound healing.1 It was compared to microdermabrasion, hydrating facials, or topical therapy alone.
In total, the study examined 92 patients over 12 weeks. Of those, 20 were aging skin patients, 16 acne patients, 16 patients with post-surgical infection, and 40 patients with post-surgical edema, bruising, and actively healing wounds.
Data from the study demonstrated that SaltFacial was more effective than microdermabrasion or hydrating facials in the aging skin population. They were compared in wrinkle reduction, reduced oiliness, reduced pigmentation, decrease of pore size, improved skin evenness, and reduction of unwanted blemishes. Out of 100%, 80% of the patients were extremely satisfied, 10% were very satisfied and 10% were satisfied.
Inflammation brought on by acne was decreased by 72.5% in the patients treated with the SaltFacial. This is compared to 36.8% of acne patients who were treated with oral and topical antibiotics.
The LED light therapy decreased the mean days of recovery in post-surgical patients by 5.6 days. The full resolution of infection, inflammation, erythema, and pain was reduced from 11 days to 5.8 days compared to patients treated with culture-specific antibiotic therapy alone.
The investigation results show a promising alternative for treating multiple conditions regarding skin.
