Sonophoresis is a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasonic technology, warmth and motion energy to significantly increase the depth and rate at which active ingredients can be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin.
The waves generated by the ultrasonic penetrate deeply through the epidermis and into the dermis, increasing blood flow, plumping up the skin, smooth out fine lines & wrinkles, tightening sagging skin, contracting enlarged pores, alleviating puffy eyes and reducing the appearance of dark circles and cellulite.
How does it work?
The skin’s natural waterproofing barrier can often impede the absorption of active ingredients. The oil/ water bi-layers in the stratum corneum act as a defence barrier that serve to protect the lower layers of the dermis. Sonophoresis works by using ultrasonic technology to relax this natural barrier by opening up the intracellular pathways to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed.
Sonophoresis is a proven treatment method that can be incorporated as an ongoing part of every skin care regime. The increased rate of absorption that Sonophoresis achieves promotes extremely efficient use of active ingredients during treatments. It is suitable for all skin types and delivers excellent results.
Not only is Sonophoresis highly effective, it is also a very soothing, relaxing and gentle treatment that the clients will enjoy.
Microdermabrasion and Sonophoresis both involve mechanical actions on the skin, are exceptionally safe and deliver excellent results.
Performing Sonophoresis following Microdermabrasion is an excellent way to ensure the maximum absorption of active ingredients into the skin. Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin cells and opens up the pores, perfectly preparing the skin’s surface for the infusion of treatment products during Sonophoresis.
