Ultrasound-mediated (Sonophoresis) Technology
Ultrasonic Facial is a popular non-invasive, painless skin resurfacing treatment that can be enjoyed during your lunch hour, with zero down time! The Ultrasonic spatula uses ultrasound technology to remove dead skin cells from your face, clear blocked pores of impurities, & blast away blackheads!
It also aids in the deep penetration of product into your skin, which will leave it completely hydrated. All skin types can benefit from this treatment, including rosacea, hyper-sensitive, oily rich, mature and dull skin. This revolutionary facial will restore your skin to a healthy, youthful glow.
Scientifically proven to enhance penetration and absorption of topically applied products by:
- “creating holes” via microcavitation and microscopic steaming of the lipid bi-layer of the skin to increase the efficacy of compound infusion
- maximizing the therapeutic potency of biologically active nutrients by increasing the overall kinetic energy of the molecules
Speeds healing and reduces chronic inflammation by increasing blood flow via its localized thermal effects
Physically stimulates cell membranes to enhance the cell repair effects of inflammatory responses through direct cavitation
What is Ultrasound and is it audible?
Ultrasound is a continuous cycle of sound waves at a frequency (≥ 20KHz) which actually is, by definition, beyond the upper limits of the human auditory sense. However, researchers have shown that the younger age groups do have the capacity to hear some spectrums of ultrasound waves, but that ability generally diminishes with age.
Is Ultrasound safe? What are some medicinal applications of Ultrasound technology?
– Ultrasound technology is absolutely safe when used as directed. In fact, it has a long history of use in medicine. For example, Medical Sonography Imaging is commonly used during pregnancy to determine the health and development of an unborn fetus.
Both Focused Ultrasound Surgery (FUS) and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) have been used in the treatment of both benign and malignant tumors. Focused ultrasound sources are also tools used in the treatment of cataracts, dislodging of kidney stones, teeth cleanings, physical/occupational therapies, liposuctions, tooth and bone regenerations, elastography, etc. Ultrasound has also been shown to have synergistic effects with antibiotics in killing bacteria.
Ultrasound has been shown to facilitate the delivery of drugs across the skin, promote gene therapy to targeted tissues, deliver chemotherapeutic drugs into tumors and effectively deliver thrombolytic drugs into blood clots. Additionally, ultrasound has also been shown to facilitate the healing of wounds and bone fractures.
Many of these examples have been FDA-approved for many years now, while others are in the later stages of Clinical Studies.
