What is it?
This is skin treatment using ultrasonic wave energy. The machine can be operated in 2 modes: skin cleansing and skin absorption.
How does it work?
Ultrasound wave passed through the skin agitates and depolarise cellular membranes, making it more permeable. Blood vessels dilate and circulation increases. In the cleansing mode the machine is programmed that the ultrasound waves directed through the skin layers outwards. Skin pores open up and waste products are forced out, the subsequent ultrasound wave tightens and closes the pores. In the absorption programme ultrasound wave is directed inwards and it causes inwards current of polarised particles â€“ ions carrying nutrients into the cells and skin matrix. The final result is clean purified, skin with the tighter pores and free of blackheads, it is also well-nourished und supple. So this treatment is suitable for people with acne or just deep skin cleansing, in absorption mode nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and minerals can be forced into the skin. Skin metabolism and nourishment will greatly enhance its condition.

Are any side effects?
