Ultrasonic face cleaning
Ultrasonic facial cleansing is one of the most effective and gentle ways to cleanse the skin and pores from impurities and excess oil.
The cleaning technique is different from the usual understanding of such procedures. To begin with, it is worth noting that before cleaning the face is not steamed, as is usually the case with other types of cleansing. This not only reduces the time of the procedure (the average duration is 15-25 minutes), but also cancels a number of contraindications associated with overheating.
Instead of steaming, the skin is treated with a special solution, and then ultrasonic cleaning itself is carried out with a thin plate. The procedure looks very simple, but is fraught with many «usefulness». The plate creates ultrasonic vibrations. Ultrasound acts on the skin in three directions simultaneously: thermal, mechanical and physico-chemical. The thermal effect lies in the fact that during massage the temperature in the cells rises (on average by one or two degrees), which helps to accelerate the metabolism in tissues (from 10 to 15 percent), which means it accelerates regeneration.
The mechanical effect is that ultrasonic cleaning is a kind of micromassage. The touch of the scrubber (spatula used for cleaning) causes ultrasonic vibration. The vibration of cells with it is about 2800 thousand times per second (at an ultrasound frequency of 2800 kHz). Thanks to this, the stratum corneum is removed, excess sebum is removed, toxins are removed and small wrinkles (mimic) are smoothed out.
The physico-chemical effect lies in the fact that, thanks to all the above processes, younger cells have the opportunity to rise up. And also a kind of intracellular restructuring occurs, because. metabolism in cells is actively accelerated.
The procedure of ultrasonic facial cleansing, unlike other types of cleansing, affects only long-standing unnecessary cells, which means it does not injure the skin, does not leave significant redness and bruising, and deeply cleanses the skin pores.
Often, in addition to this type of cleaning, ultraphonophoresis is used, which includes lymphatic drainage and micromassage. They are used for all skin types, simply changing the regimen of the procedure depending on the indications and skin characteristics.
It should be noted that ultrasound facilitates the penetration of nutrients into skin cells not only in salon service, but also at home.
It is recommended to repeat the procedure once a month and a half.
Ultrasonic cleaning: action on the skin of the face
After ultrasonic cleaning, the skin becomes light, clean. Skin care at home becomes easier and more effective. Skin metabolism is regulated. The relief of the skin becomes more uniform, the pores narrow, and the manifestations of puffiness decrease.
Ultrasound contributes to the activation of redox processes. Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which means it has a strong anti-aging effect.
Indications for the procedure
Such cleaning as a preventive measure will not hurt anyone. But its use is especially relevant if your age has crossed the 20-year border, and your skin is familiar with the following manifestations:
- increased oiliness of the skin
- mixed and poorly regulated skin type
- dull complexion
- enlarged pores
- increased sweating
- skin aging
- cosmetic defects
- increased expression of mimic wrinkles
Ultrasonic cleaning: contraindications
Contraindications to this procedure include:
- skin diseases (neoplasms, herpes, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, inflammatory processes, etc.)
- gold or platinum reinforcement
- diseases of the cardiovascular system
- second half of pregnancy
- paralysis of the facial nerve
- telangiectasia (permanent dilation of small blood vessels)
- adaptation and rehabilitation periods after operations, chemical peels
Even if none of the above applies specifically to you, it is recommended to consult with a cosmetologist before the procedure.
Let your skin be fresh and healthy!
