Ultrasonic Skin Rejuvenation
Ultrasonic treatments offer a new generation of aesthetic peeling and toning.
Using the high performance of ultrasound, this exciting cosmetic breakthrough provides a painless and perfect physiological skin regeneration. This new technology stimulates the revival of the skin tissue rendering it more radiant from the first treatment.
How does it work?
The ultrasonic spatula utilizes sonic vibrations; oscillating thousands of times per second lifting dead cells. The ultrasonic wave stimulates skin tissue and improves permeability of the membrane promoting collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid production as well as minimized lines and wrinkles and pigmentation. This treatment also generates frictional heat which accelerates blood circulation. Multiple treatments offer a cumulative effect to continuously improve the skins appearance. Sonic vibrations reduce imperfections leaving the skin firm and smooth. Ultrasound also allows permeability of essential nutrients to the skin for greater benefits from topical applications, lightening serums, hydration treatments, acne products and more...
Peeling: The Peeling Phase removes 20% to 50% of the "stratum corneum" — the outermost layer of the skin which we continuously shed. The hand instrument, similar to a small spatula, is stroked over the skin. Ultrasonic vibrations at 28,000 times per second, spin the water molecules at high frequency causing cavitation — a phase change in the water molecule. Cavitation gently and thoroughly lifts dead surface skin cells, surface pigmentation and cleans out follicles without the irritation and inflammation that is sometimes associated with mechanical methods. In addition Ultrasound vibrations also stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production for a firmer more youthful skin.
Infusion: Ultrasound makes product penetration possible and more effective — the process is called "phonophoresis." An antioxidant or nutrient is penetrated into the skin in this phase to provide deep environmental healing and protection. Other products specific to your skin type may also be applied. The ultrasound frequency opens minute pathways to allow the product to penetrate deeply into your skin, for better, more long-lasting results.
Micro-current therapy: This exciting technology normalizes the skin with a very mild electrical current — a medically proven technique to restore individual cells' natural electrical charge. The paddle is lightly stroked over the face and throat creating a slight pulsing and warming on the face. Micro current stimulates collagen and elastin for a tighter appearance. When a cell has been damaged due to environmental causes, like overexposure to the sun or aging, the cell's electrical current is adversely effected, restricting the flow of nutrients into the cell and waste products out of the cell. This "patting phase" helps normalize the electric current within the cells and promotes healing, cell regeneration and resiliency. Microcurrent Therapy breathes new life into tired, damaged and aging skin.
- Increases skin's metabolism.
- Removal of aged surfaced skin cells offers immediate rejuvenation.
- Stimulates collagen and elastin.
- Increased synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid (occurs in skin naturally)
- Accelerates blood and lymph circulation.
- Tightens and firms skin.
- Micro current cellular regeneration.
- Increases permeation of vitamins and nutrients.
- Minimizes blackheads and hyper pigmentation.
- Minimizes fine lines, wrinkles.
- Offers improvement to cellulite.
- Less invasive and more effective then microdermabrasion.
- Can be used on even sensitive skin types, acne and rosacea.
The benefits of ultrasonic treatments are a result of 3 factors, mechanical/physical, chemical and thermal.
Physical/Mechanical: Ultrasound causes cellular vibration. Skin cells are lifted by pulverized water molecules to exfoliate the skin. With ultrasonic frequency of 2800kHz oscillation of cells is 28, 000 times per second. Intense exfoliation without abrading the skin.
Thermal effects: is a local increase in temperature in the tissues that causes the acceleration of metabolic processes by 13%. Increases product permeability and increased blood flow for collagen/elastin stimulation.
Physio-chemical effects: Due to the rearrangement of intracellular structures. Removal of micro level cells increases permeability of cell membranes, which leads to an improvement of cellular metabolism.
Overview: Ultrasonic waves stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, increased synthesis of hyaluronic acid (occurs naturally in the skin and responsible for "plumping" and firming. Clears clogged pores, minimizes hyperpigmentation, smooths cellulite and tightens jowels for overall skin rejuvenation.
How many treatments:
1 per week for 6 weeks (may vary) are recommended for maximum benefits.
Maintenance is recommended 1 time monthly thereafter
