Three Distinct Treatment Phases:
The Peeling Phase removes 20% to 50% of the "stratum corneum" — the outer layer of the skin which we continuously shed. Water is applied, along with a hydration product, such as CosMedix Mystic, or any product that helps the skin retain moisture. The hand instrument, similar to a small spatula, is stroked over the skin. Ultrasonic vibrations spin the water molecules at high frequency causing cavitation — a brief phase change in the water molecule. Cavitation gently removes the dead surface skin cells and cleans out follicles without the irritation and inflammation that is sometimes associated with mechanical methods.
This is one of DermaSound's best features. Normally, large molecules cannot penetrate the skin to provide the deep medication that skin often needs. But ultrasound makes that penetration possible — the process is called "sonophoresis." Typically, an antioxidant product is penetrated into the skin in this phase to provide deep environmental healing and protection. Other products specific to your skin type may also be employed. The lotion, cream or serum is applied liberally to the skin. The hand instrument is lightly stroked over your skin. The ultrasound frequency opens minute pathways to allow the product to penetrate deeply into your skin, for better, more long-lasting results.
This phase normalizes the skin with a very mild electrical current — a medically proven technique to restore individual cells' natural electrical charge. The paddle is lightly stroked over the face and throat creating a slight pulsing and warming on the face. When a cell has been damaged due to environmental causes, like overexposure to the sun or aging, the cell's electrical current is adversely effected, restricting the flow of nutrients into the cell and waste products out of the cell. This condition makes it difficult for cells to heal. This "patting phase" helps normalize the electric current within the cells and promotes healing, cell regeneration and resiliency. DermaSound's Microcurrent Therapy breathes new life into tired, injured and aging skin.
