Ultrasound is one of the most comprehensive methods in the 21st century to provide the skin with active agents. Here’s why it’s such a powerful element of certain facial treatments.

During an ultrasound (also known as ultrasonic) facial, high level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin. This facial therapy promotes cellular renewal and repair, tones facial muscles, increases blood circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage, combats puffiness and swelling and improves skin care product penetration.

The secret of its success is that with its application both water-soluble and fat-soluble active substances can easily enter the skin. Applying the method of ultrasound, the metabolic processes of the skin intensify, the nutrient and oxygen supply of the cells increase.

Thanks to the positive effect on the connective tissues’ fibres, the skin becomes tighter and youthfully elastic.

The heat generated during ultrasonic treatment increases blood flow, nutrient and oxygen supply to cells.

In a nutshell, these are the beneficial effects of ultrasound therapy:

– Increased permeability of the cell membrane, resulting in better skincare product penetration into the deeper layers of the skin
– Boost of microcirculation and cell metabolism
– Increased lymph flow due to the mechanical effect
– PH normalisation
– Muscles are toned
– Lines, acne and scars are reduced

Ultrasound is part of our nourishing, anti-aging facial, the deep-cleansing facial, as well as microdermabrasion treatment on its own or combined with deep cleansing, and it can also be added to any of our other facials.
