What is it?
Sonophoresis infuses products deeper into the skin for optimal results. Unlike when products are applied topically, it uses ultra sound technology to aid in the absorption of key nutrients being infused. The sound waves help to loosen the skin cells, allowing the product to penetrate deeper, and deliver instant, longer lasting results.
How does it work?
Firstly, your Caci beauty therapist will perform a treatment called scaling, which helps to clear away impurities and dead skin cells, creating a smoother, more even texture. This is performed by passing a small paddle over your face which emits sound waves (at a different frequency to infusing), having a cleansing effect on the skin.
Next, an appropriate infusion serum will be applied to your skin. This is what makes the treatment unique, and suitable for most people; your infusion serum is personalised depending on your specific skin concerns. Your beauty therapist will choose the right infusion product to suit your concerns when you come in for your treatment.
A range of infusions containing active ingredients such as Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid work to correct the following concerns.
- Dehydrated skin
- Congestion and breakouts
- Aged and tired looking skin
To help infuse it into your skin, your therapist will start on Sonophoresis part of the treatment. This involves moving the paddle over your face, where micro-currents work to infuse products into your skin. This is quite comfortable and just feels like small vibrations on your face with a slight ticking sound. The treatment takes around 30 minutes in total.
Lastly, your Caci therapist will perform a lifting on the skin. Lifting increases the cellular renewal process, increasing collagen production. This has a firming effective on the skin and improves skin texture and tone. Lifting feels similar to Sonophoresis part of the treatment, but just uses a different frequency setting on the machine.
When will I start to see results?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice your skin is more hydrated and has a radiant glow. For best, long lasting results, we recommend a course of treatments. This is available on our Reformaskin skin correcting programme, where we offer a range of payment options along with beauty rewards throughout the year.
