Vibration brings skin to life!
Ultrasonic vibration has been used for cosmetic purposes since the early 1980s. Because of its wide therapeutic use and the fantastic, fast-acting results, it’s a natural for skincare treatments.
Cell stimulation and increased blood flow through Ultrasonic Vibrations
Ultrasonic sound waves act on the body in the following way:they stimulate cells.
The tiny massage it produces expands the space in which the cells exist, causing movement of cytoplasm, the rotation of mitochondria, and the vibration of the cell nucleus – essentially it stimulates and expands the cell membrane. It also improves local blood and lymph circulation and allows for increased penetration of skin care products, for example your expensive moisturizer!
The warming and heating action is one of the most important therapeutic factors of ultrasound. It is a kind of internal heat, with an increase of about 80% – this heat is carried away by the blood circulation and is not noticed by the client. This warming action boosts blood circulation and helps reduce inflammation. It is of great benefit prior to cosmetic surgery to reduce swelling, and after the healing process is well on its way to reduce puffiness. It produces a relaxing and comforting effect for the client.
Vibrations Help Regeneration of Cells and Damaged Tissue
Small doses of ultrasound promote the synthesis of protein inside the cells, help regenerate damaged tissue, and promote the synthesis of fiber cells in the body. The accelerated metabolism of the cells changes the pH level of the skin to a more alkaline state, and facilitates the absorption of any induced products. The skin visibly lightens and smooths.
Soft Peel New Generation of Microderma With No Downtime
The ultrasonic spatula is the new generation of microdermabrasion or what is being called “soft peeling”. There is little to no redness or downtime with this treatment. This unit offers ablation or re-texturing results with the safe and gentle use of ultrasound vibration of up to 28,000 cycles per second.
How Does the Ultra Sonic Spatula Work?
First, the ultrasonic vibrations exfoliate the superficial scaly layers of the skin, reviving the skin tissue. When water is exposed to ultrasound vibrations, the ultrasonic emission has a spectacular effect on the water molecules, which become pulverized. This is called micronization. It creates a soft peeling effect rendering the skin youthful and luminous after the first treatment.
Secondly, the sound waves are used to push in vital nutrients, as determined by the esthetician. This reverse side of the spatula provides an intense micro-massage to heat the skin tissue, stimulating blood flow. The position of the spatula helps the penetration of regenerating skin care products into the deeper levels of skin tissue, again accelerating blood circulation and strengthening the skin tissue metabolism, resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen & elastin stimulation and repair
This two-step treatment causes the skin to become rejuvenated by first exfoliating and then by the deep penetration of nutrients, stimulating the skin’s natural collagen fibers to help rebuild the tissues. Collagen fibers are what give the skin a plump look as seen in youthful skin. Elastin is the fiber that gives your face its elasticity. Both the exfoliating treatment and the product infusion help stimulate and rebuild these fibers, resulting in youthful, glowing skin, right from the first treatment.
I am always hesitant to offer professional tools for at home use as I find most folks over use them. Over use creates a challenge for the skin too. The one that I use is from Shelley Hancock. Her educational videos are a big help in the use of this tool. I am not clear on the quality of the ones available on amazon. If you do purchase one from a retail outlet comment her and let me know what you think.
