How Does It Work?
Ultrasonic is also known as High-Frequency Ultrasound and Sonic.
Ultrasound (ultrasonic ) is high-frequency sound waves, between 800,000 Hz and 2,000,000 Hz.
The sound waves produced by the facial ultrasound machine resonate well above our hearing level and move too quickly for our nerve endings to register. And this is why you will not hear anything when it is working in sonic mode. As the ultrasound waves pass from the treatment head to the skin, they cause a vibration of the surrounding tissues - this is called a cascade of intercellular communication. The intensive rejuvenating cyclic sound waves penetrate below the skin, reaching the dermis and stimulate collagen and elastin production. You will not feel these vibrations on the surface of the skin, and the device will not feel hot against the skin. Therefore it is a safe and comfortable treatment for the users.
Some ultrasonic devices and machines offer the convenience of different treatment modes. Generally, the lower the high-frequency rate setting, the deeper the sound waves will penetrate below the skin. Thus, the 1MHz mode is designed for general body treatment where tissues and muscles are thicker. The 3MHz mode is designed for general facial treatment where tissues and muscles are much thinner. The 5Mhz mode is appropriate for treatment around the most delicate area - the eyes.
Treatment Frequency Per Area:
1 MHz Body Area
3 MHz Facial Area (Cheeks, Forehead, Chin)
5 MHz Delicate Eye Area
A conductive solution such (water, serum, gel) must be applied during the treatment to optimize the penetration of the cyclical sound waves. Besides encouraging improved conductivity, the solution also penetrates deep into the skin. Therefore it is recommended to combine with skincare products to enhance facial results.
When ultrasound enters the body, it reacts in various ways. Muscles, tendons, and bone absorb that. Harder surfaces like bone will absorb and reflect ultrasound energy. All of these play a role in the eventual total temperature rise in the surrounding tissue. This treatment, in turn, dramatically increases needed oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste products. This antibacterial cleansing action also helps prevent the onset of acne and blemishes, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer after each application. Once only available exclusively through salons, spas, and medical offices, ultrasonic facial technology is now within reach of the home consumer in the form of hand-held ultrasonic skincare devices. When used according to the recommended treatment guidelines, these high-tech tools are equally useful in addressing a range of skincare concerns from acne to wrinkles. They may be used to replace or supplement spa visits, or in conjunction with post-procedure regimens to enhance and prolong results.
Why does my skin need to be wet during the treatment?
Water or a water-soluble gel/serum must be used during the treatment because it is the best conductor of ultrasonic sound waves. Damage may occur to your ultrasonic treatment head is applied to the skin without using the correct conductive medium, or any conductive medium at all.

The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It is advantageous to tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, fade dark eye circles, freckles, and old age spots and even repair scar damage. The process is safe, painless, and gentle, and it can also be suitable by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.
Results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just occur overnight. Although Ultrasonic treatment produces an immediate and temporary firming effect, continued daily application will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results.

Average Cost: $99
Price Range: $80-$150
