The Salt Facial NYC: Gentle Facial Treatment for Wrinkles, Sun Damage, Acne & More

What could be more natural than the timeless power of the sea? The Salt Facial combines one of Earth’s most essential elements — sea salt — with the latest advances in aesthetics. As a result, it hits a sweet spot in the world of noninvasive skincare treatments — providing exfoliation and skin renewal that’s highly effective, while also being extremely gentle. Seriously, there’s no better way to resurface and rejuvenate the skin without needles, without chemicals, without harsh abrasives. That means a SaltFacial can provide the best results for any skin type at any time of the year from head to toe. 

How is all this possible? It all comes down to a revolutionary, three-pronged approach. Specifically, it takes advantage of organic sea salt, Ultrasound technology and LED Phototherapy used in tandem. Put simply, it’s the ONLY machine on the market to bring these three time-tested, respected approaches together. That’s what we call true synergy for the skin.

The SaltFacial FAQs

The SaltFacial by SaltMed is a non-invasive, three-step facial treatment that takes advantage of pure, organic sea salt, Ultrasound therapy and LED Phototherapy, in order to exfoliate, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin. 

As a result, it safely, gently and effectively can provide a whole host of benefits for the skin, including but not limited to, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, reversing sun damage, and restoring balance to acneic / oily skin. Let’s drill down on the how each part of the treatment works, as well as why a Salt Facial creates such excellent results:


Sea Salt Resurfacing

Detoxifies | Safe for sensitive skin  | Maintains healthy pH

Positive-pressure flow technology gently delivers the salt to the skin for uniform exfoliation and resurfacing — without the use of heavy suction that could irritate or harm the skin. As a result, The Salt Facial effectively removes the top layer of skin (stratum corneum) to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath and restore a healthy glow.  


Aesthetic Ultrasound

Replenishes nutrients | Promotes healthy circulation | Maximizes topical treatments  

Reaches deep under the skin with time-tested ultrasound waves. Nourishes the complexion with vital nutrients and antioxidants, while drivng results to the foundational level of the skin — particularly, when combined with topical treatments such as PRP or PRF.


LED Phototherapy

Reduces redness | Increases healing rate |  Encourages collagen production

Rejuvenates to reveal a healthy, radiant appearance with high-powered LED Light Therapy. Encourages skin renewal by improving circulation and collagen production. Different wavelengths of light penetrate to different layers of the skin. As a result, LED can be tailored to your skin type. Specifically, blue light waves reduce inflammation and reduce bacteria, red light promotes collagen production and firms skin and amber light reduces redness and promotes healing.

When sea water evaporates, it leaves behind sea salt. This sea salt contains a whole host of healing minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium — all of which regular table salt lacks. Our bodies contain the same concentration of nutrients and minerals as sea water, which is why sea salt has an uncanny ability to balance, protect, and restore skin tissue.

Additionally, salt is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and calming. What’s more it retains water, making it highly effective for deep hydration and plumping the skin.

A SaltFacial session is a simple, “lunchtime” procedure. Treatment takes under an hour with no downtime, recovery or pain. Patients can return to normal activity immediately following treatment.

The SaltFacial machine and its hand-held device can be applied to the face, neck, chest and entire body, including back, shoulders, arms, stomach, legs, inner and outer thigh and butt. 

The Salt Facial is an incredibly versatile procedure. Depending on the area of the body, as well as individual skin types / skin concerns, results can include:

  • Restoring balance to acneic / oily skin 
  • Diminishing acne breakouts, such as pimples, blackheads and whiteheads
  • Reducing skin imperfections such as acne scarring or burn marks
  • Reversing sun damage
  • Improving stretch marks
  • Restoring a smooth texture to uneven skin 
  • Brightening and evening skin tone
  • Diminishing age spots, brown spots and dark marks
  • Deep cleaning pores / Reducing pore size
  • Restoring moisture levels for a deeply hydrated complexion
  • Reducing inflammation and diffuse redness
  • Tightening loose, saggy skin
  • Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promoting collagen production to bring back a youthful appearance to aging skin
  • Restoring healthy skin

The SaltFacial Therapy is safe for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI, as well as even the most sensitive, rosacea-type or overly treated skin. That’s because this all-natural treatment is free from:

  • Harsh chemicals or abrasive particles, making it gentler than traditional exfoliating methods, such as chemical peels, dermabrasion or microdermabrasion, 
  • Vacuum suction like that of dermabrasion or microdermabrasion
  • Needles such as Botox Cosmetic or Filler Injectables and/or
  • Skin ablation and/or high temperature found in certain lasers such as Thermage.

Additionally, the patented lightweight and angled handpiece of The SaltFacial device assures safe yet effective treatment in hard-to-reach and/or delicate areas of the skin, including the eyes and lips. 

A single Salt Facial will result in a glowing, exfoliated complexion with fewer lines and wrinkles. To maintain results, we typically recommend three to six sessions scheduled a month apart, followed by periodic treatments thereafter. If you’re struggling with a particular skin condition, such as scarring or acne, your esthetician may suggest a different schedule. As always, we recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to discuss your individual skin concerns with an Expert in Beauty.

It depends. For example, are you looking for a single session pre-event to spruce up your look for a special occasion? Or, maybe, you’re looking for a great way to maintain the health of your skin with a series of Salt Facials? Or, perhaps, you have a stubborn skin condition you’d like to correct that requires more intensive treatment? Specifically, the cost and treatment plan decided by you and your esthetician is based on: 

  • the condition of your skin to begin with
  • how many areas of the face and/or body you’d like to treat, as well as 
  • your personal treatment goals. 

Again, if you have any questions about treatment or the cost of a Salt Facial, we recommend speaking with an Expert in Beauty at Smooth Synergy.

Again, Salt Facials are worth it for anyone at any time of the year. Specifically, if you are squeamish about needles or are concerned about pain, a Salt Facial is particularly suited for you. Further, if for any reason you are not a candidate for certain noninvasive skincare treatments, perhaps due to skin tone, pregnancy or nursing, or because you have extremely sensitive skin or a skin condition like rosacea, a Salt Facial is a top choice for you. Because of the synergy of its three-pronged approach, it can give you amazing skin-restoring benefits that rival other skincare treatments without the use of needles, abrasives, suction or extreme heat.
