During an ultrasonic facial, high level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration. Ultrasound may be used on most parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, breasts, stomach, waist, hips, buttocks, and legs and can now be used in the comfort of your own home.
The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used by professionals to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, fade dark eye circles, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage. The process is safe, painless and gentle and is can even be used by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.
The sound waves produced by the ultrasound facial machine resonate well above our hearing level and move too quickly for our nerve endings to register. The intensive rejuvenating cyclic sound waves penetrate below the skin reaching the dermis and will not cause the user any discomfort or unusual side effects. Some ultrasonic devices and machines offer the convenience of different treatment modes. Generally, the lower the ultrasonic frequency rate setting, the deeper the sound waves will penetrate below the skin. Thus, the 1MHz mode is designed for general body treatment where tissues and muscles are thicker. The 3MHz mode is designed for general facial treatment where tissues and muscles are much thinner. The 5Mhz mode is appropriate for treatment around the most delicate area - the eyes.
|Treatment Frequency||Treatment Area|
|1 MHz||Body Area|
|3 MHz||Facial Area (Cheeks, Forehead, Chin)|
|5 MHz||Delicate Eye Area|
When ultrasound enters the body it reacts in various ways. It is absorbed by muscle, tendons and bone. Harder surfaces like bone will absorb and reflect ultrasound energy. All of these play a role in the eventual total temperature rise in the surrounding tissue. This in turn dramatically increases needed oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste products. This antibacterial cleansing action also helps prevent the onset of acne and blemishes and the skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer - even after just one application!
Ultrasonic facials offer a safe and gentle alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive skin rejuvenation treatments.
Results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just occur over night. Results are often achieved within 3 months.
