When the weather gets colder our skin dries out - it the way mother nature works! While i have put a great deal of importance on exfoliation we also need to concentrate on replenishing and nourishing the new skin so that you can glow your way through the winter blues. The most sure fire way to get the nourishment we need most effectively is through Sonophoresis.
What even is Sonophoresis?
The skin in effect has a barrier caused mainly through oils between the skin cells. When we disrupt this barrier we can both remove hidden excess dirt but also pass nourishment to the underlying levels of the skin. The Sonophoresis machine uses ultra sound vibrations to disrupt the barrier helping us to deliver skin treatments to the underlying level of the skin. This is the skin that is developing and soon to come to the surface, so the more nourished it is the better your skin will appear. Sonophoresis is 500 times more effective than manual massage of serum. That means as a therapist we can massage in an amazing serum to combat your concern but to get a result 500 times better we use the sonophoresis machine.
The ultrasound vibrations from the Sono machine momentarily create little spaces in the outer layers of the skin, by disrupting the barrier, allowing greater absorption of applied product. The infusion technique and associated product application can dramatically improve the appearance of the skin.
It can be used to infuse serums for many different concerns. A great reason for using the sono machine especially for winter is to infuse some extra hydration. We all feel the effects of winter on our skin and after a microdermabrasion or even a good manual exfoliation that is the prime time to gat the nutrients back into the skin before any more debris build up.
Other complaints we can use the sono for is ageing. Infusing some Vitamin C and A will work on boosting the collagen and refining the skin to combat signs of sagging or lines developing.
Brightening serums are another great example of combatting pigment concerns, again an amazing example of a serum to infuse if that is your concern.
The Sonophoresis treatment can give immediate visible results post treatment, gives a refreshing appearance and with no downtime at all there is really no excuse not to give it a go.
We currently have the Sonophoresis within our Medi Facial which gives you a good cleanse, exfoliate and ultrasound infusion all in the one facial. It is suitable for all skin types young and old we can customise serums and masks to suit your skin and your concerns.
