Although it may look scary, it works by putting LED lights in its back which revitalizes the skin, creates collagen, sterilizes the skin and cures pimples. This is a spot with a micro current. This operation does not need hands used in the process."

For facial beauty, compared to the traditional diet, pore cleaning has been a new trend lately.

Kawashima added, "Our firm provides specialized equipment for pore cleaning. The tubed tip of this tool is made with chips that can inject the soft peeling agent that is developed by our firm. The peeling agent can gently remove keratin on the skin, and the keratotic plug on the nose. This is a machine that is able to restore the original brightness of the skin."

Instead of using water, this equipment can remove dirt effectively without damaging the skin with the lotion that is mixed with cosmetic ingredients derived from about 20 kinds of fruits and vegetables and peeling elements.

He further said, "With the many overseas inquiries received, and the proposals of OEM production, we continue to advertise with countries such as China, Malaysia, Singapore, etc. and look forward to spread it to more users."
