Move over peel-off masks and pimple-popping videos. 

There is a new pore-purging facial that literally vacuums out all the dirt and debris out of your face while moisturizing your skin at the same time. And it is immensely satisfying to watch.

While the facial will not extract pimples, it will remove any excess oils and dead skin cells – all of which can actually be seen thanks to the machine’s waste system that sees the matter that is removed from your face build up in a jar or bottle, giving you a great view of all the gunk that has been cleared from your complexion.

And the vacuum-esque skincare technique is so effective that it is already attracting a celebrity crowd; Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania tried the facial for herself Monday.

Dolores got her own HydraFacial – a version of the method that is currently being toured around the country in a specially-made truck – in New York City this week.

The company is travelling to major cities for the next five months so that other people can try the three-step treatment for themselves. 

These steps include cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing the skin, all of which are done using a tool that quite literally sucks the dead cells from the face, and out of the pores, while also applying different treatments and products into the skin.

Fascinating video and images of the facial show the seemingly-simple process being performed, with clients sitting back in a chair while the small hand-held vacuum-like tool is pulled across their face by the facialist.

Meanwhile, Sephora has also introduced a pore-purging facial into 100 of its stores across the United States.

The ‘Perk Hydrating Facial’ is an in-store treatment that involves a consultant using a tool to suck debris out of your pores before depositing it into a jar. 

During the 30-minute service at Sephora, a consultant will first check the moisture levels of the skin. This helps them determine the skin type and what products to use on the face for optimal results.

The consultant then removes any makeup and excess oil from the skin with a cleanser before using the Perk machine to start the vacuuming process. 

Refinery29’s beauty writer Mi-Anne Chan experienced a similar kind of facial for herself to see what impact it had on her own skin.

A video shows the consultant cleaning Chan’s face before using the Perk Hydrating tool to simultaneously vacuum out her pores while also pushing serum into the skin. 

The tool features an edge around the head to exfoliate the skin while another section vacuums out the debris. In the center of the tool is a rollerball to dispense the serum.

Chan said the consultant used a lactic-acid based serum initially on her skin to help loosen the dead skin cells. But the serum was then switched out to one with Vitamin C to serve as a brightener.

What is left behind after the treatment is a satisfying (and disgusting) jar filled with all the gunk, dirt and puss that was removed from the  pores.

The consultants who perform the service are not licensed estheticians, which is why extractions are not part of the treatment. But they are trained by Sephora to use the tool and consult on skincare needs. 

This treatment is free with a $75 purchase of any of the skincare products at Sephora.  

How does the ‘vacuum’ facial clean out impurities from the skin?

If you get a HydraFacial or go to a Sephora store for their own Perk Hydrating Facial, you can expect a number of steps during the treatment. 

First, the consultant will clean your skin with a cleanser to rid it of any excess makeup or oils.

The tool then works to gently rid the skin of its top layer. This step helps resurface the skin through gentle exfoliation.

The ‘vacuum’ part of the facial is meant to unclog the pores from any dirt and debris that can cause unwanted pimples. But simultaneously, the tool is also pushing a moisturizing serum into the skin. This prevents the skin from becoming dry during the suction process. 

A moisturizer with antioxidants is then placed on the skin at the end of the treatment to maximize the brightness. 

The facial is meant to rejuvenate and resurface the face while also diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
