Monsoon Facial


Tsunami Facial


Procedure Time: 1 Hour

Recovery Time: None


For those with sensitive skin or certain irritating skin conditions, you may believe that a professional facial is not possible or will only make your concerns worse. Luckily, the master estheticians at Seattle Plastic Surgery have a solution to concerns about abrasive esthetic treatments and sensitive skin. The rain facial in Seattle and Tacoma hydrates, cleanses, and exfoliates the skin with a gentle flow of water used in combination with addable features your Seattle master esthetician will use to tailor your rain facial to your skin.


Seattle rain facials use advanced technology to create a facial perfectly tailored to your skin’s needs. With infinite combinations of the rain facial heads, no two facials are exactly the same. Most Seattle rain facials take about an hour to complete and you will not require any painkillers or anesthetics for this non-invasive and pleasant facial.

Regardless of the rain facial package you choose, the treatment will include a water-based exfoliation. This works similarly to a microdermabrasion treatment–the surface layer of your skin is removed to reveal fresh, blemish-free skin underneath. Microdermabrasion has many benefits for your skin and is an effective skin resurfacing treatment, but is not for everybody. For example, patients with sensitive skin or skin conditions, microdermabrasion can leave the skin overly irritated.

This is where the rain facial comes into play. Using a steady stream of water, the rain facial resurfaces by clearing dead skin without removing the top layer of skin. This gentler approach makes the rain facial compatible with any skin routine and a safer option for patients with sensitive or inflamed skin.


At Seattle Plastic Surgery, we offer two base packages for your rain facial. These can serve as guidelines, but you and your master esthetician may choose to modify these packages to better address your concerns and skin.


The tsunami package is designed to benefit all skin types and conditions by providing intense hydration. Moisture is one of the most important components of our skin’s health. It can make the difference between healthy looking skin and dull, lifeless skin. This package is especially helpful for patients with dry skin. This package includes the rain facial, ultrasonic treatment, and red light therapy.

The Tsunami package can treat and benefit those with: 

  • Dry skin
  • Sun damage
  • Dull skin
  • Discoloration
  • Texture issues


The monsoon package focuses on anti-aging. This package includes the rain facial, lymphatic drainage, red light therapy, and a skin scrubber treatment. This can promote smooth skin, extract blackheads, and provide a layer of protection for your skin from the Pacific Northwest environment.

This package can benefit those with: 

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Discoloration
  • Initial loss of skin elascity
  • Dead skin
  • Tone issues

State-Of-The-Art Facial Technology

The rain facial uses a medical device specially designed to provide customizable skincare. With this all-in-one approach, the rain facial can combine multiple treatments in a simple one hour treatment. Some of the features of the rain facial include: red light therapy, blue light therapy, lymphatic drainage, and suction tips that help extract free radicals and blackheads.

In recent years, blue and red light therapies have become more common with many over-the-counter devices available. The issue with these over-the-counter options is that they are not professionally administered. Red light helps promote the reproduction of your skin cells, which can help fight against wrinkles, fine lines, and may contribute to scar reduction. Blue light can break up oily and clogged skin to treat acne prone skin. It is also believed to be an effective treatment for sun damaged skin and may prevent the onset of skin diseases.

With so many options for your rain facial it can be difficult to know which is best for you and your skin. Our master estheticians have a deep understanding of their craft and they will evaluate your skin during your consultation to advise you on which packages and treatments will aid your skin most.

The Features Of The Rain Facial

As previously mentioned, the rain facial contains eight different heads that each perform a different function that benefits your skin. Not every head will necessarily be utilized during your Seattle rain facial because the facial is customized especially to your skin type and concerns. Just some of the  features of the rain facial include:

  • Microdermabrasion: This is the foundation of our rain facial. This comes standard in both of our rain facial packages and are part of most rain facials performed at Seattle Plastic Surgery.  The microdermabrasion head uses water to lightly remove dead skin from the face and acts like microdermabrasion without fully removing the top layer of skin.
  • Vacuum pen: The vacuum pen head gently sucks out blackheads and clogged pores to leave your skin fresh and clean. This head work especially well for those who suffer from frequent acne breakouts.
  • Red light therapy: Using innovative LED lights, this therapy stimulates new skin and collagen growth to naturally rejuvenate your skin.
  • Blue light therapy: Blue light has proven to kill the bacteria that commonly causes acne. This therapy is great for those with oily and acne prone skin.
  • Skin scrubber: This deep cleaning head uses small pulses of electricity and vibrations to pull dirt, pollutants, and free radicals from your pores. In addition, if used in the opposite direction, it can infuse serums into the pores to promote skin health.
  • Ultrasonic: The ultrasonic head uses high frequency sound waves to permeate deeply into the skin. This helps provide a deeper clean and clear away clogged pores.
  • Lymphatic drainage: For those with fluid build up in the skin or inflammation, this head lightly massages away these toxins and buildup to even complexion and reduce uncomfortable side effects of inflammation.


When you leave our office after your rain facial, you can expect to return to your daily activities. The gentle techniques of the rain facial will leave you with glowing skin and few side effects. While you may find your skin is a little pink after the facial, this should resolve quickly. You can apply makeup immediately after treatment.

Continuing to practice good at-home skin care will prolong and improve your results. Your master esthetician can give you practical advice for your daily routine and evaluate the effectiveness of your current regimen. Usually, using a moisturizer and cleanser every day will maintain good skin.
