What is Ultrasound?
Ultrasonic literally translates to sound waves beyond the upper limit of human hearing. It’s most well known as the technology medical professionals use to get a glimpse of still-developing babies in the uterus.
However, high-frequency sound waves (Ultrasound) stimulates collagen, making it the perfect technology to incorporate into anti-ageing devices.
It is often used to:
Accelerate the absorption of your skincare products
Create a 'lift' or 'tone' within the skin
How does it work?
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.
For those seeking firmer skin, this mechanism is particularly effective on cells that contain collagen. You will not actually feel these vibrations on the surface of the skin and the device will not feel hot against the skin.
The vibration massages the surrounding tissue, which increases oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste.
The skin should feel energised, rosy and firm. Ultrasonic vibrations cause the skin channels and intercellular spaces to open briefly, allowing the ingredients of your skincare to reach the deepest layer of your skin, meaning your expensive serums and moisturisers work harder.
What are the best Ultrasonic devices?
There are a number of devices that use Ultrasonic technology. If you’re looking for a comprehensive device, the SQOOM starter Explorer Set comes with five individual anti-ageing serums and has six different settings to get the most out of your at-home ultrasonic treatment.
If you’re looking for a simpler device to get to grips with, the Mira-Skin Ultrasound Tool has just one setting. In just three steps, the Mira-Skin can leave you looking younger and healthier, without the need for any invasive procedures. Simply apply the Mira-Skin Hyaluronic Serum, glide the device over you skin, then follow with your usual skincare.
For those on a budget, the JeNu by Trophy Skin is the device for you. The same cost as one treatment in the salon, JeNu enhances the absorption of your skincare by 6x and can be used with any skincare product it’s lightweight, one setting and perfect for travel.
Ultrasound is a great technology for boosting cellular metabolism aka getting everything moving from the surface on the skin. It’s also great for boosting the absorption of skincare products so you can make the most out of the products you love.
