Ultrasound Facial

Most people are familiar with ultrasound technology used during pregnancy, but not realize how beneficial it can be as a facial therapy. Ultrasound or sometimes called Ultrasonic skin rejuvenation, repairs your skin and stimulates your skin's natural healing.

 

This high-tech facial uses a specialized ultrasound machine that emits high-frequency waves. Ultrasonic treatments benefit a variety of skin types and can improve many common skin conditions. 

 

The Ultrasound Facial treatment is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that is safe and suitable for all skin types, from acne to rosacea and mature skin. Even the most sensitive skin will benefit from this treatment. Increased blood flow stimulates collagen, the body's primary structural protein, providing strength and resilience to dermal tissue. This advanced anti-aging procedure gives your skin a much healthier, more youthful look and feel.

 

Ultrasound waves penetrate the skin to deep-cleanse, hydrate, promote collagen production, and kill bacteria. Increased oxygen and blood circulation to underlying tissues leaves your skin thoroughly cleansed, revitalized and glowing.

 

Ultrasound is an effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots and mature skin. Results are usually noticeable after only one treatment. Although the Ultrasound Facial is non-invasive and safe for all skin types, it's not recommended for people with pacemakers or other serious medical conditions.

 

Acne:

 Sometimes the body can become immune to certain acne medications if used over an extended period of time. Regular ultrasound therapy keeps the acne away long after other expensive medications and treatments. Ultrasound gently cleanses the skin of acne-causing bacteria and unwanted toxins while making the skin more receptive to acne lotions, creams and other skin treatment products. The results can be extremely dramatic - even after only a few treatments.

 

Enlarged Pores:

With regular use, ultrasound therapy can be very effective at reducing the size of enlarged pores, softening skin and controlling excess sebum production. The gentle spray of oxygen molecules produced by the high frequency, diminishes enlarged pores by penetrating deep down into the root of the affected area and cleaning out unwanted debris and toxins allowing the pore to quickly regain its natural size once again.

 

Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Sagging Skin:

The action of ultrasound therapy increases blood circulation, which in turn nourishes the skin's surface and renews underlying cells. It also produces an enriched form of oxygen, which provides the skin with a firm, youthful, vibrant glow. It diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tightens double chins and jowls and improves overall skin texture and tone by promoting increased collagen production.

 

Puffy Eyes:

 The "oxygenation" action produced by ultrasound aids in lymphatic drainage and disperses excess fluid while increasing blood circulation. The result is a reduction in the appearance of congested, tired, puffy eyes. 

 

Dark Eye Circles:

 Scientific research has shown the cause of severe dark eye circles to be broken capillaries that have leaked hemoglobin, creating a red-blue pigment deposit under the eyes. Ultrasound creates a circulation rush in the area and can be very effective at fading dark under eye circles resulting in a fresher, brighter, more youthful looking appearance.

 

Non-invasive, facial-rejuvenating ultrasound treatment is only one of the many alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Ultrasound is the “sound wave” of the anti-aging movement’s future.

My Ultrasound Facial:

Think of it as a gentle pressure washing for your skin.

The Ultrasound treatment features two distinct phases of treatment.

First phase - Cleansing and Exfoliating 
Picture a little metal spatula (as you see in the photo) that oscillates so fast you can't see it move. When placed against your skin along with appropriate cleansing solutions, the oscillation will literally pulverize the fluid which will "pressure wash" your skin. There's just no better term for it. It's painless, and it won't turn you red or irritate your skin.

 

What it will do: blast away dead skin cells and oscillate debris right out of your pores. This seriously reduces the number of clogged pores and impurities hanging around in your skin.

 

 

Second phase - Hydrating and Nourishing

 I will use a blend of ingredients and products chosen with your individual skin care needs in mind. These ingredients will go directly on your skin along with a gel that assists in delivering the ultrasonic/sound waves into your skin.  I'll place the ultrasound device flat against your skin and infuse your blended ingredients. This phase increases circulation and boosts product absorption far more than if I painted on a mask and timed it.  Your complexion will be radiant, skin will be refined and softened, and you'll have no irritation.
