Electrotherapy

Electrical equipment used in facial therapy is designed to improve skin conditions, hydrating , protect and delay the effects of ageing, stimulating, tightening and firming, nourishing cleansing and relaxing.

Facial Steaming

Steaming is a gentle treatment suitable for all skin types. It is used during facial treatments, for example before deep cleanse. Its use depends on individual case and is decided during consultation.

Benefits

  • opens the pores and softens the skin

  • stimulates the sudoriferous glands to produce sweat helping to eliminate waste

  • prepares skin for further treatment

  • relaxation

  • increase in circulation bring nutrients to the skin and carries away waste products

  • oily deposits in the follicles are softened and comedones are removed more easily

  • increased circulation causes an erythema, improving skin colour

Contraindications

  • hypersensitive skin

  • acne rosacea

  • asthma

  • sunburn

High Frequency

Usually used after deep cleanse treatments. High frequencies have a bactericidal effect on the skin - in one word they 'kill bacteria'.

Benefits

  • oily, blemished and pustular skin – heals and dries – a specially after deep cleanse

  • sallow skin – improves skin color

  • stimulates and encourages cell renewal

 

Contraindications

  • pregnancy

  • heart problems

  • epilepsy

  • highly nervous client

 

 

Galvanism

 

It is an electrical treatment that passes a direct current through the skin. At our salon this treatment is usually recommended for sensitive, overactive skin with broken capillaries. The goal is to calm the skin, make broken capillaries stronger and stop burning sensation. The treatment should be done as a series twice a year, especially before summer time and winter time – sun, heat, rain and wind in high doses have negative effect on skin.

Other benefits for skin with galvanism are massaging, lifting and firming.

We recommend take a course of 10 treatments every day or every second day. The price for a full course is 70 EUR.

 

Specific contraindications to galvanism

  • lack of skin sensation

  • metal pins or plates

  • braces or lots of metal fillings

  • epilepsy

  • heart problems

  • open/cut skin

  • pregnancy

  • pustular acne

  • any skin diseases to prevent cross-infection

Cavitation Peeling

 

The treatment is an efficient dead epidermis peeling and uncovers younger dermis layer free from dead cells, excess of sebum, bacteria, toxic substances and residues of cosmetics. Skin prepared in such a way is ready for better absorption of preparations. As a result of clearing (peeling) the skin is visibly smoothed and softened with opened pores and hair follicles, disinfected (bacteria and microorganisms are destroyed). Skin may become slightly red which will disappear after few minutes or few hours (in case of very sensitive skin). Cavitation peeling is used in our salon usually as first step of peeling during the facial (if skin condition allows)

 

 

 

Sonophoresis – Ultrasounds

Modern treatment involving active substances entering into dermis by use of ultrasounds. Ultrasonic waves penetrate deep into the skin, resulting in increased permeability of cell membranes. This enables the effective application of preparations.

 

 

Effects of ultrasounds

  • mechanical – micro-massage – pressure changes in tissues

  • thermal and biological – heat formation in tissues what causes better skin permeability, increased blood circulation, fat deposits breakage

  • congestion increase in epithelium and corium layers, improvement of local metabolism

  • increase of cell membranes’ permeability – improves cells exchange and better fluid absorption

Results after treatment 

  • skin firming

  • revitalization, improved color

  • hydration and oxygenation
