The use of ultrasound in the cosmetic field is very versatile. The frequency range for best treatment results is 1 MHz (= 1 million cycles per second).
With our handheld ultrasound device, you can achieve both thermal and mechanical effects.
Due to their vibrations, ultrasonic waves generate local heating of up to 0.5-1 °C which also reaches deeper skin levels. The blood vessels react to this stimulus by expanding which in turn promotes blood circulation.
Ultrasound waves create a micro-massage effect. Cell membranes are stimulated by vibrations which allows the diffusion of substances through membranes. This effect is especially desirable if you want to introduce active substances into the skin from outside.
These thermal and mechanical effects stimulate a variety of cell processes, including the formation of elastin and collagen which make the skin appear more firm. Furthermore, ultra-sound waves encourage lymph flow by stimulating the metabolism which helps the skin to detoxify by removing metabolic products from tissue cells.
