Microdermabrasion originated in Europe and entered the USA market around 1995. It is a form of mechanical exfoliation achieved with high-grade micro crystals composed of a corundum powder of aluminum dioxide. The micro crystals are applied to the skin surface through a pressurized air tube through a hand piece, which controls the rate of flow and the suction used to remove the micro crystals from the skin. Microdermabrasion is used to diminish sun damage, pigmentation, open and closed comedones, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse textured skin.
Microdermabrasion treatment incorporates complete home skin care which includes daily sunscreen application that helps make the difference in obtaining the best result. A Microdermabrasion treatment may be performed by itself or as part of an Anti-Aging Facial.
The next step in an Anti-Aging Facial is Microcurrent.
Microcurrent is considered to be a passive form of exercise, designed to work in harmony with the natural bio-electrical current found in the body.
A Microcurrent machine is used to perform the treatment by placing its two probes on a muscle group, and then a specific movement technique is followed to stimulate the muscle. Current is regulated according to the skin’s resistance. It works very gently and helps speed the natural regenerative process of the body when the correct intensity of current and frequency are used. Many biological processes are associated with electrical impulses. Facial skin tone and muscles are all related to this system.
Microcurrent is reported to influence metabolism, cellular activity, muscle tone, and firm the appearance of the skin. A Microcurrent treatment may be performed by itself or as part of an Anti-Aging Facial.
The next step in an Anti-Aging Facial is Light Therapy.
LED Light Therapy Facial
The power of light therapy, the origins go back to the ancient times. In 1500 BC, the Chinese first suggested that exposure to light be essential for the restoration of health. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) observation has led to further developments enabling introduction of light therapy to the beauty industry. Rejuvenation system LED lights ranging from red, blue, yellow, and green for specific client concerns, with coverage of the face, neck, and décolleté, to maintain firmer younger looking skin.
A LED Light Therapy treatment may be performed by itself or as part of an Anti-Aging Facial.
The next step in an Anti-Aging Facial is Oxygen Facial.
Ultrasound is a widely sought after spa treatment for the facilitation of blood flow, healing, and much more. This treatment uses sonic vibrations that work at one million times per second (1 MHz) or (3MHz). The ultrasonic wave stimulates skin tissue and improves permeability of the membrane to boost collagen tissue and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Ultrasound will also lift the skin, resulting in a younger and healthier appearance. Ultrasound creates deep heating of the tissue below the skin. This effect will increase blood flow, dilate capillaries, relax muscles, facilitate lymphatic flow, and dissolve the cellulite to break down unwanted subcutaneous fat. The ultrasound sonic vibrations also help to reduce lines, leaving the skin soft and smooth.
