The vacuum is used to suction dirt and impurities from the skin, and it simultaneously works to reduce the appearance of creases and fine lines. It also works to reduce keloids.
Rotary brush. An excellent cleansing accessory, the rotary brush lightly exfoliates the skin and loosens other debris. It stimulates circulation and is soft enough to thoroughly cleanse highly sensitive skin.
