Deciding Between Facials, and a Spotlight on DermaSound
Facials are skin care treatments that clean, exfoliate, and treat the skin cells found on your face. Facials are beneficial for a number of reasons including cleansing, preventing aging, promoting blood circulation, rejuvenating, detoxifying, and treating acne, whiteheads, and blackheads. Additionally, facials offer mental renewal as well, used to pamper and relax.
For patients suffering from wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and pigmentation, DermaSound offers a great solution. DermaSound™ is a safe, state-of-the-art ultrasonic skin treatment system. Ultrasonic refers to sound waves, which sit at a frequency just above the upper limit of human hearing. This treatment system incorporates environmentally safe water with low-frequency sound waves. Here, we’ll go over all the ways DermaSound positively impacts your skin.
Cavitation is the process of removing the layer of dead skin cells that sit atop your current skin. These cells are often damaged, and dull the appearance of your skin. With cavitation, a gentle micro-jet spins water molecules across the surface with vibrations at 28,000 times per second! This treatment causes no trauma or inflammation to the skin, and the color blind technology is safe to use on any skin tone. Cavitation is specifically beneficial for results in acne, pigmentation, and aging skin.
Sonophoresis is the unique technique of bio-molecular penetration of the skin, where nutrients and other topicals are applied through a specific frequency and power density that work together in synchrony for results. The DermaSound Elite™ frequency enhances topical penetration, combining electrical signals, electrical current input in watts, and electromagnetic coupling factor. All of DermaSound’s sonophoresis components are established through science, designed for the ultimate efficiency.
In each of your cells exist biological engines called mitochondria. Mitochondria are organelles that convert the food you eat – carbohydrates, fats, and protein – into energy, either to be stored or to be used immediately. Microcurrents are applied by the skin care professional in order to rebalance and repair cells. Younger-acting skin is affected most, increasing the transport of nutrients while eliminating waste from cells. Additionally, microcurrents encourage mitochondria to release the molecules that carry energy, called ATP, for improved cellular function. Most patients report being able to see immediate results as their cells become rejuvenated.
DermaSound’s ultrasonic skin treatment system has benefits other facials can’t offer, one of which is that the device is clean and environmentally-safe. The treatment utilizes only water and low frequency sound waves. Unlike other treatments, which have batteries, crystals, needles and other disposable waste products, DermaSound strives to avoid all pollution to the environment. By using DermaSound’s facial, you can rest assured that you’re looking your best without any harm on the environment.
Preparing for a facial shouldn’t be stressful – it’s just as relaxing as the facial itself! For the facial, Athena Wellness Center recommends wearing clothing that ensures you’re comfy during the treatment. For the week prior, avoid any major at-home treatments or exfoliating routines. Skip any waxing or botox the day before, and try to stay out of the sun.
