|Eastbay Acne & Skin Care Clinic is pleased
to introduce the DermaSound Plus a revolutionary ultrasonic facial
treatment that benefits your skin three distinct ways. With the flexibility
this instrument offers, we expect it to become the cornerstone of our
exfoliation, acne and mature skin treatments. It's highly effective,
yet gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, including Rosacea.
Is an UltraSonic Facial right for you?
We think so! Here are some reasons why.
A Complete Facial
DermaSound Plus Facial is a complete facial that employs ultrasound
- exfoliate dead skin cells for a
clearer, healthier complexion without the redness and irritation
sometimes associated with Microdermabrasion;
- loosen and remove oil, dirt and
cellular debris from follicles for cleaner, healthier skin. Pores
diminish in size and bacteria levels are reduced;
- gently stimulate skin to produce
collagen and elastin. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished; skin is
restored to a smooth, youthful glow and maintained with regular
- aid in penetrating skin care
products deep into the skin. Less product is required, and it is more
effective as it penetrates and acts deep within the skin;
This "Ultrasonic Facial" process is gentle,
non-invasive, safe and suitable for all skin types, from Acne to Rosacea and
Mature skin. Even the most senstitive skin will benefit from DermaSound
treatments without any significant erythema (redness) as a result of the
treatment. Any erythema that does occur diminishes rapidly after treatment.
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.
Plus is particularly effective
in treating the following
The ultrasound vibration helps to break-up follicular deposits of
oil, dirt and dead cells a veritable breeding ground for bacteria.
Ultrasonic frequency has been shown to kill bacteria and decongest the
pores resulting in cleaner, healthier skin.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
DermaSound helps stimulate and promote collagen and elastin
production for more youthful skin. It also helps with hydration. The
"plumping" of the skin fills out fine lines and wrinkles.
Yes, this is an excellent treatment for sensitive skin, even those
with Rosacea. Pure, filtered water and hydrating serum is used during
the Peel Phase. It is gentle and non-irritating. During the Infusion
Phase, only products formulated for sensitive skin are used. No longer
will your sensitive skin and/or Rosacea prevent you from exfoliating!
The Final Result
is smoother, healthier and
younger-looking skin, when used regularly along with an appropriate home
care program. In skin care it's important to know that, no matter what the
procedure, there are no instant fixes. Long-term results are achieved when
DermaSound Plus treatments are performed regularly one treatment can't
substitute for a series of treatments. The results are cumulative as your
skin benefits from and loves regular care.
