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.

It’s got 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. But, it’s early days. Will your newly acquired skin care regimen work for you?

You’ll know soon enough if you stick with it and commit. But, there’s more you can do to guarantee outstanding results. A regular facial?  Yep, that’d be good. Give your skin a fighting chance and promise to stay out of the sun? Agree, another very good idea.

But, if you have indeed purchased an amazing skincare range, then for me, there’s one thing that springs instantly to mind enhancing your daily beauty regimen in a big, big way. 

It’s known as Low-Frequency Sonophoresis. 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. 

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 L-ascorbic acid (Vit C) to the dermal layer of your skin.

Exactly where they’re needed!!  

Sure, 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 feel 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. After the first treatment your skin will look better, plumper, more hydrated and, if incorporated with a professional peel; which I highly recommend.  You’ll 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 pigmentation 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 incorporated better nutrition as often as every night. Low-frequency Sonophoresis

But, 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.
