This treatment uses sound waves to infuse antioxidants and hydrating skincare ingredients deep into the dermis of the skin to be more effective.
Sonophoresis or ultrasound infusion technology uses low frequency ultrasound vibrations to significantly improve absorption of active ingredients into the skin up to 1000 times greater than if applied manually. It causes small spaces to open between the skin cells that result in an increased penetration of ingredients and the disruption of the lipid barrier caused by the ultrasonic vibrations also helps in the transdermal delivery. Sonophoresis can be customised to suit any skin type and condition, and is commonly used with antioxidant-powerhouses like Vitamin A & C, as well as other active cosmeceuticals and skin softeners. These actives are released deep down into the dermis to target the signs of aging, dehydrated skin, photo damage, pigmentation, poor skin texture and acne.
Sonophoresis is a great compliment to any facial treatment and can be tailor made to combat any skin concern depending of the active serums that are used with it. A smooth metal wand is used to administer sonophoresis to the skin. It is non-intrusive and safe for almost anyone. It creates a temporary break in the skin’s lipid bi-layers allowing active nutrients to fill little pockets between the skin cells. There is a slight humming sound and sometimes a gentle vibrating sensation. The wand feels like a therapeutic facial massage as it is slowly moved over all of the face and neck. Particular focus is taken on the areas of concern such as around the eyes mouth & mouth, forehead or breakouts. The skin can flush slightly from the treatment but settles usually within an hour. The treatment includes a Vitamin C Infusion for an intense boost of vitamins to promote new collagen formation, perfect for nourishing the skin. It also includes an anti-aging treatment that offers a transdermal delivery of rejuvenating Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
Sonophoresis delivers anti-oxidants that stimulate collagen and boost skin radiance. It also increases skin circulation and toning leaving the skin feeling smooth, firm and hydrated. It is suitable for all skin types, delivers excellent results, and is a safe way to stimulate new cell growth, to promote the rejuvenation of dull and tired skin.
