Derma-sound is a technology derived from ultrasonic science. The Derma-sound device uses low frequency ultrasonic (sound) waves to gently clean, exfoliate, extract blackheads, whiteheands & build up, while simultaneously enhancing the penetration of applied products. In addition, this device incorporates technology known as microcurrent that aids in the plumping, healing and calming of the skin. The DermaSound Facial includes the following steps:
1) Cleansing/Peeling – Purified H2O is used to gently deep-clean the skin. This first step removes 20% to 50% the outer layer of the skin which we continuously shed. The cleansing or peeling phase works by cavitation (the sound waves spin the water very quickly, and the water loosens and removes dead cells, dirt, and oils as it hits the skin’s surface). The process is very effective on blackheads, acne, rosacea, and enlarged pores.
2) Infusion/Sonophoresis – This second step is used to “push” nourishing products into the skin. While applying ultrasonic waves we create small temporary openings in the skin that allow treatment serums to cross over into the skin. This process is called sonophoresis. The treatment products used are customized and specific to your skin care concerns to obtain the results you are looking for.
3) Micro-current – A pain-free process of administering low levels of electrical current to the skin. Our cells have a natural electrical charge that can be damaged by the sun, the environment, and the process of aging. Micro-current therapy promotes healing and restores the cell’s normal functioning. It increases the transport of nutrients to the cells and removal of waste products. Micro-current therapy also assists the cells to function better and stimulates the production of collagen, one of the most important support structures of the skin.
How many treatments are recommended?
Regular DermaSound facial treatments invigorate the skin, unclog pores of environmental toxins and bacteria, protects against acne breakouts and hydrates, diminishing the appearance of dull and dehydrated skin. Recommended treatment plan is 4-6 initial treatments, one every 2-4 weeks, then quarterly maintenance thereafter.
