Going deep with Low-frequency Sonophoresis.


You’ve finally found what you’ve been looking for.

You can’t wait to get started. It’s ticked many boxes. You adore the packaging. It looks good in the bathroom.

The brand has a great reputation for getting results and the founder of the company is held in high esteem in the beauty industry. 

As far as you know, there are no hidden nasties nor is there any unnecessary fragrance added other than the occasional essential oil to provide a somewhat natural scent, you like that. This is serious skincare and you’re ready! 

But, will it work for you?

Despite your confidence, will you get results? You’ll know soon enough if you stick with it and commit. But did you know there’s more you can do to guarantee outstanding results?

For me, the investment in an amazing skincare range will still need a little help and there’s one thing that springs instantly to mind to enhance your daily beauty regimen in a big, big way. 

It’s known as Low-Frequency Sonophoresis (LFS). I know, a bit of a mouthful but despite how it sounds this is a pain-free, low investment, high reward treatment with next to no social downtime but with significantly impressive results.


What is Low-frequency Sonophoresis and how does it work?

Great question! 

When used on the skin, this technology, known as low-frequency sonophoresis (LFS) emits sound waves at 20,000 – 25,000 kilohertz (kHz) per second. A technical detail that may be lost on you, but even so, it’s important. 

Just know that it means long-lasting results!!

How? The oscillation of sound creates invisible cavities which temporarily disrupt your lipid barrier and opens up intracellular pathways. 

You’d be excited if you just knew what it all really means, right?

Well, active ingredients commonly used in skin care preparations can now find their way into your dermal layer where they’ll do their best work. LFS will direct nutritional support from vitamins like Retinol (Vit A) and Ascorbic acid (Vit C) to the dermal layer of your skin.

Exactly where they’re needed!! Bravo!

Of course, you get these vitamins in your diet, but they don’t always find their way to your skin and, depending on the needs of your body, these essential nutrients can be withheld from the skin and channelled to other vital body organs where your needs may be greater.

Yep, your body’s smart like that. 

But hey, why should your skin miss out on all the fun, especially if there’s a way to speed things along? Combining an excellent skin care regimen with Low-Frequency Sonophoresis (LFS) does just that. Nutrients found in your skin care formulations that would otherwise languish on the surface of your skin can go so much deeper. 

The best thing about all this?

It doesn’t hurt a bit, the most you’ll notice is a hissing in your ears (that’s the soundwaves). Unlike other more invasive treatments you don’t need a numbing gel prior to the treatment, nor will you have any social downtime and best of all your skin even after your first treatment will look better, plumper, more hydrated and, if incorporated with a professional peel; which I highly recommend will be glowing from the inside out. Nice!

Doing it yourself?

If results are what you’re looking for, especially for the treatment of stubborn conditions like hyperpigmentation and premature lines and wrinkles then a skin care consultation is a good idea. But, if you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, then you could invest in a hand-held device and use it at home, it’s an option, and there are devices on the market that will do a great job; some better than others.

The mobile device pictured here by Environ comes pretty close to beauty clinic efficacy and the beautiful thing about doing it at home with a quality device is you get to incorporate better nutrition for your skin as often as every night. Low-frequency Sonophoresis

Or you can leave it to a skin care professional.

If you want great results and the added benefit of advice from a skin care professional who can coach you through your skin care journey and help keep you committed all the while monitoring your results, then you may want to start with a treatment in a beauty clinic.
