What is high frequency?

High frequency is a skin care treatment used by professionals to help treat and prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, decongest puffy eyes, fade dark eye circles, rejuvenate the condition of the scalp and nourish hair follicles for healthier hair growth.

Considered a timeless and essential skin rejuvenating treatment by those the skin care industry, high frequency has been shown to stimulate cell renewal and improve skin care product penetration and absorption by gently warming the tissues of the skin.

 

Why add on high frequency to your next facial?

In treating aging skin, high frequency current firms and tones by causing an immediate circulation rush to the skin in addition to subtle tissue warming. These functions cause a very safe and natural contraction of the underlying blood vessels and tiny muscle groups. The dilation of the underlying vessels pushes away toxins, while the cells enjoy a feast of increased nutrients and hydrating volume. This result is in an increase in blood circulation and cell renewal as well as increased production levels of Collagen and Elastin which soften and smooth away wrinkles, reduce pore size and improve overall skin texture.

an incredible add on for acne sufferers

The application of high frequency current to the skin also promotes a natural cleansing and antibacterial action that helps treat existing acne and prevents the onset of new acne. Clients experiencing cystic acne will benefit greatly from the deep penetrating germicidal action of high frequency.

ULTRASONIC ENHANCEMENT

During an ultrasonic treatment, high level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration. Ultrasound may be used on most parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, breasts, stomach, waist, hips, buttocks, and legs. 

 

How does ultrasonic work?

The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used by salon professionals to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, fade dark eye circles, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage. The process is safe, painless and gentle and is can even be used by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.

The sound waves produced by the ultrasound machine resonate well above our hearing level and move too quickly for our nerve endings to register. The intensive rejuvenating cyclic sound waves penetrate below the skin reaching the dermis and will not cause the user any discomfort or unusual side effects. When ultrasound enters the body it reacts in various ways. It is absorbed by muscle, tendons and bone. Harder surfaces like bone will absorb and reflect ultrasound energy. All of these play a role in the eventual total temperature rise in the surrounding tissue. This in turn dramatically increases needed oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste products. This antibacterial cleansing action also helps prevent the onset of acne and blemishes and the skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer.

Originally developed by NASA (click here for research) for astronauts who could become injured or ill on a long-term space flight, the technology is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as acne, anti-aging, and pain.

 

Celluma LED treatments can be added as an enhancement to any facial treatment: 

15 minute treatment.........$10

How does LED light therapy work?

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.

    Real people. Real Results.

    The following patients results were achieved using Celluma LED Light Therapy treatments twice per week for 6 weeks

      ULTRASONIC SKIN SCRUBBER ENHANCEMENT

      How does the skin scrubber work?

      The skin scrubber utilizes ultrasound technology to gently exfoliate the skin of dead skin cells and impurities. Ultrasonic waves help loosen and remove oil, dirt and cellular debris from pores in order to achieve a noticeably radiant, healthy glow. This treatment is non-abrasive, and it can easily achieve a healthy complexion without the redness, swelling, and irritation, which are often associated with microdermabrasion treatments. 

      Deep Pore Cleansing

      Features:

      • Resonates at 34,000 ultrasonic vibrations per second
      • Deeply cleanses pores of excess oil and impurities
      • Exfoliates cellular debris
      • Extracts imperfections
      • Accelerates the absorption of skincare products
      • An all natural and safe treatment for skin care

      There are two steps to the Ultrasonic Skin Scrubbing process:

      1. As shown below,  the skin scrubber is held at an angle and ultrasonic vibrations are applied to the skin to unclog pores, gently exfoliate dead skin cells and debris & get rid of pesky blackheads.
      2. The skin scrubber is then flipped over so the metal tip is flat to the skin in order to begin sonophoresis. Sonophoresis is a process that exponentially increases the absorption of topical serums into the epidermis and dermis of the skin. Sonophoresis occurs because ultrasound waves stimulate micro-vibrations within the skin epidermis and increase the overall kinetics energy of molecules making up topical agents.
