The use of Ultrasound therapy in skin care is becoming very popular in the spa for all of the benefits it offers to all skin types and conditions. The procedure is done during a regular facial and can assist the esthetician in many different applications. There is no downtime or pain involved as the method of delivery is done by sound waves. In fact, many of our clients report a relaxing and soothing feeling during use of the multi-purpose hand piece which produces 1 million vibrations per second.
The skin “scrubber” or peeling function helps carry away dirt, oil and debris from the surface while eliminating inflammatory agents and allergens. In that way, it is especially beneficial for oily and acneic skin types. It also helps to remove dead skin cells that have been loosened by exfoliation.
The treatment also includes a massaging function which aids in product absorption and blood circulation. Some of the other benefits of this function are increased cellular regeneration (collagen and elastin), reduction in pore size, and accelerated wound healing
(after cosmetic procedures). It also helps to firm tissue, reduce puffiness, relax facial muscles and retain moisture levels in the epidermis. It is a very effective way to quickly minimize dry, flaky areas of skin or chapping.
Your esthetician will focus treatments on the areas most needed to improve the overall condition and appearance of your skin. Our most popular therapy includes the use of plant stem cell serum which is showing faster improvement of aging and environmentally damaged skin.
