Ultrasound is gentle and safe. It provides rapid results and represents a significant advance in serious skin care. Ultrasound produces sound waves by rapidly oscillating the head hand piece probe. Altering the frequency of the oscillations, controls the depth of penetration. The lower the frequency, the greater the depth of penetration.
The treatment has three major effects Mechanical, Thermal and Chemical.
Mechanical effects include micro-massage of tissue, softening of scars, increased superficial toning, and increased elasticity of the skin.
Thermal effects of ultrasound create friction and increase local heat. By increasing the metabolism of fibroblasts and other connective tissue cells, production of collagen and elastin increases. Increased temperature also stimulates blood flow to the area, bringing with it more oxygen and nutrients for healing. Another benefit of increased blood flow is an increase in lymph flow, which aids in removing toxins and waste products.
Chemical reactions in cells to facilitate healing. It also decreases the local pH and increases the permeability of skin cells--effects that favor the penetration of active ingredients in the epidermis. Therapeutic ultrasound treatments hydrate the skin and allow product to penetrate deeper into the skin, leaving your skin feeling smoother and rejuvenated.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery recently stated: "New skin care product formulations, used in conjunction with ULTRASOUND, will allow for deeper penetration of topically applied rejuvenating agents into the skin, resulting in significantly improved aesthetic results." "Early controlled studies suggest that externally-applied ultrasound can result in significant clinical skin rejuvenation benefits." Aesthetic Surgery Journal article's author David H. McDaniel, M.D.
