Electrotherapy treatment has long been used to combat aging. It’s one of the best ways to help the skin maintain its tone, elasticity and youthfulness. This type of treatment has lots of benefits. It is non-invasive, suits all skin types, is pain free and suitable for any age.
So, let’s learn more about the types of electrotherapy treatments that are currently available.
Electrotherapy Treatment Types
#1 Microcurrent Electrotherapy Treatment
Microcurrent is an electrotherapy treatment that boosts collagen and elastin production. This process gently lifts the contours of the face by tightening the muscles. And softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It also stimulates the production of ATP ( Adenosine triphosphate) a form of glucose necessary for all cellular rejuvenation.
At Skin Sense we often combine Chinese herbs and glycolic acid with our microcurrent electrotherapy treatments to help exfoliate the surface of the skin and repair sun damage. The result is healthier-looking skin and improved complexion.
#2 Ultrasound Facials
Ultrasound is another type of highly effective electrotherapy. Suited for all skin types
Ultrasound facials deeply cleanse the skin and help active ingredients to absorb more readily. This improves skin texture, repairs sun damage and decreases pigmentation.
Are you having problems with acne? Ultrasound facials will help to clear breakouts and rebalance the skin.
Galvanism, also known as galvanic current, has been used by aestheticians for decades because of its ability to penetrate the tops layers of the epidermis. It uses two different probes — positive and negative. The positive probe uses specialized acid-based serums that clean the pores and reduce inflammation. The negative probe uses alkaline serums. Together this process of iontophoresis detoxifies the skin and increases circulation and cellular activity.
#4 High-Frequency Electrotherapy Treatment
As its name suggests, this method of treatment uses an alternating high frequency current. By producing oxygen on the skin surface it has an anti-bacterial effect that is ideal for treating breakouts and acne.
High-frequency electrotherapy treatment is one of the best methods to ensure the skin does not breakout after extraction or a facial treatment. Extraction is often done as part of a facial procedure to remove blemishes and blackheads. This improves the texture and appearance of the skin and prevents scarring. It can also be performed on all skin types including the most sensitive.
If you’re tired of sagging skin, acne, and wrinkles, fret not. These treatments will get rid of all these skin imperfections. By combining them your skin will look much healthier and younger. So book your facial today and have your aesthetician customize an electrotherapy treatment for you!
