Ultrasonic Facial ~ yes, state of the art...but what is it?
It’s an exciting yet simple and powerfully effective tool to rejuvenate your skin. Ultrasound has been widely used around the world in medical applications and is now available for state of the art skincare treatments. Ultrasound uses the cutting-edge technology of very high speed, low-frequency sound waves that radiate invisible micro vibrations deep within cells, helping stimulate the skin’s natural repair mechanisms in distinct ways. But what does that mean for you? In short, it means Ultrasound is superior at cleansing, exfoliating, product infusion and lifting & firming your skin...all without using chemicals, dangerous acids or other harsh abrasives.
Furthermore, an Ultrasonic Facial is gentle, non-invasive, safe and suitable for all skin types, from Rosacea/Sensitive to Acne to Mature skins. Yes, even the most sensitive skin will benefit from Ultrasound treatments! This is exciting news for everyone.
Want more information? Then let’s consider the main phases of Ultrasonic Facials:
Exfoliation - The Exfoliation Phase removes 20% to 50% of the "stratum corneum" — the outer layer of the skin that we continuously shed. Water is applied and then the hand instrument, similar to a small spatula, is stroked over the skin. Ultrasonic vibrations spin the water molecules at high frequency causing cavitation — that is a brief phase change in the water molecule. Cavitation gently removes the dead surface skin cells and cleans out follicles without irritation and inflammation associated with other mechanical methods.
Infusion - This is one of the best features. Normally, large molecules cannot penetrate the skin to provide the deep medication that skin often needs to maintain health. But ultrasound makes that penetration possible — the process is called "sonophoresis." More exciting still is because of the small molecular size of the active in the line, 302 skincare products, when used in conjunction with Ultrasonic treatments, prove an especially powerful combination for skin health and rejuvenation. Typically, a serum is penetrated into the skin to provide deep healing and protection to skin cells. Your skincare specialist will discuss with you any other products specific to your skin type that you may need. These are applied liberally to the skin and then the hand instrument is lightly stroked over your skin. The ultrasound frequency opens minute pathways to allow the product to penetrate deeply into your skin, for better, more long-lasting results.
Micro Massage Therapy - This phase 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. When a cell has been damaged due to environmental causes, like overexposure to the sun or aging, the cell's electrical current is adversely affected. As a result, waste products build up in the cell, restricting the flow of nutrients required to maintain its health. This condition makes it difficult for cells to heal from damage and to regenerate. The micro massage phase helps normalize the electric current within the cells and promotes healing, cell regeneration and resiliency. Thus, new life is literally massaged into tired, injured and aging skin.
Ultrasonic Facials are particularly effective in treating the following skin conditions:
Acne The ultrasound vibration helps to break-up follicular deposits of oil, dirt and dead cells — a veritable breeding ground for bacteria. Ultrasonic frequency has been shown to kill bacteria and decongest the pores resulting in cleaner, healthier skin.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles Ultrasound helps stimulate and promote collagen and elastin production for more youthful skin. It also helps with hydration. The "plumping" of the skin fills out fine lines and wrinkles.
Rosacea & Sensitive Skin Yes, this is an excellent treatment for sensitive skin, even those with Rosacea. Pure, filtered water and hydrating serum is used during the Peel Phase. It is gentle and non-irritating. During the Infusion Phase, only products formulated for sensitive skin are used. No longer will your sensitive skin and/or Rosacea prevent you from exfoliating!
The Final Result - When used regularly along with a quality skincare home program, your skin will be smoother, healthier and younger looking. Who isn’t interested in that?
Long-term results are achieved when Ultrasound treatments and quality products are regularly performed together—and while one treatment may be all that is necessary to affect a change in some, a series of treatments may be needed by others. However, you will find the results are cumulative.
As a tool for rejuvenation, ultrasound is powerful. Simple and effective. It will give you the immediate result without using harmful chemicals exfoliates and continue its effects for months after applications.
Your friends will notice the difference, your skin will love the benefits and you will love the results.
