The Ultrasonic Facial process is gentle, non-invasive, safe and suitable for all skin types, from Acne to Rosacea and Mature skin. Even the most sensitive skin will benefit from ultrasonic treatments without any significant eurythmia (redness) as a result of the treatment. Any eurythmia that does occur diminishes rapidly after treatment.
The Exfoliation Phase removes 20% to 50% of the “stratum corneum” — the outer layer of the skin which we continuously shed. Water is applied, along with a product that helps the skin retain moisture. The hand instrument, similar to a small spatula, is stroked over the skin. Ultrasonic vibrations spin the water molecules at high frequency causing cavitation — a brief phase change in the water molecule. Cavitation gently removes the dead surface skin cells and cleans out follicles without the irritation and inflammation that is sometimes associated with mechanical methods.
This is one of ultrasound’s best features. Normally, large molecules cannot penetrate the skin to provide the deep medication that skin often needs. But ultrasound makes that penetration possible — the process is called “sonophoresis.” The ultrasound frequency opens minute pathways to allow a corrective serum to penetrate deeply into your skin, for better, more long-lasting results.
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. You will notice a lifted and tighter appearance to the skin.
