Ultrasonic massage An ultrasonic wave (with a frequency higher than 20,000Hz) is a form of ‘sound vibration’ that is inaudible to human hearing. This ‘ultrasound’ may be used on the dermis and epidermis with a wide range of beneficial results. Its main use is prescribed product penetration, where the products are introduced to the tissue with ultrasonic waves. It increases both the uniformity and penetration delivery of prescribed products into the tissue and increase’s its therapeutic effect of the prescribed product accordingly. In the course of ultrasonic therapy, the intensity of the ultrasound is generally between 0.5-1.5W/cm2 (shown on the LED display between the Green & Yellow sections), with a treatment duration of round 10-15 minutes.
1. Mechanica M al function n An ultrasonic wave acts on the body in the fo ollowing way. By stim mulating the body cells and the tiny ge it produces. Expan nsion deve elops within n the space in which the cells exist, e causing miccro-massag movvement of the cytopla asm, the ro otation of mitochondr m ria, and the e vibration of the cell nucleus; which stimulattes and exxpands the cell memb brane. It im mproves loccal blood a and lymph circulation c and also o increasess the pene etration dep pth of prescribed products, and d thus theirr effectiven ness. Ultrrasound alsso helps to o improve the t metabo olism and regeneratio r on of bodyy cells.
2. Warming W a and heatin ng function The e warming and heatin ng action of o ultrasoun nd is one of o its most important ttherapeutic c factors. It iss a kind of internal i he eat, with a temperatur t re increase e of approxx 80%. Thiis heat is dissipated d b by the blood circulation and d is not feltt by the clie ent. This warming w acction can change the blood circculation and d helps to reduce inflammation n of the derrmis. It is of o great ben nefit prior to t plastic surg gery to red duce swelling, and affter the hea aling proce ess has pro ogressed. It is useful in reducing posst surgery puffiness p a scarring. It produces a relax and xing and comforting effect for the client. 3. Chemica C l function The e biochemical function of ultraso ound come es from the e reaction to anabolissm and catabolism. abolism – The proce ess that co onverts sub bstances in nto other co omponentss of the org ganisms Ana che emical struccture. abolic proccess by which cells co onvert sub bstances in nto excreted compoun nds. Cattabolism – The meta i.e. the processs of cell metabolism m m. Small do oses of ultra asound tre eatments ccan help promote the synthesis of proteins p witthin the cells, which can c help to o regenera ate damage ed or woun nded tissue e, thuss promoting the synth hesis of fib bre cells in the body. In the proccess of anabolism an nd cataboliism, the prescribed d product is absorbed d and utilizzed by the cells. The accelerate ed metabolism of the e cells, changess the PH le evel of the skin to an increased alkaline state, which h facilitates s greater abssorption of the prescrribed produ ucts. The skin s lighten ns and is viisibly smoo other, whic ch means this t proccess is parrticularly efffective witth whitenin ng/lightenin ng productss used for all types of o pigmenta ation prob blems. 4. Benefits B • Crreates hea at and warm mth which will relax tiissue and muscles • Brreaks down n molecula ar structure e of prescriibed produ ucts, aiding g penetratio on and abs sorption • Re educes sw welling and puffiness • He elps to smo ooth and soften s fine lines and wrinkles w
Benefits Continued• Exfoliates the top layer of the skin • Improves blood circulation • Increases cellular regeneration • Has a healing and regenerative effect on wounds and inflamed tissue • Increases the moisture retention of the skin • Softens the thrombus (any blood clots within a vessel that partially or totally obstructs circulation.) • Improves acneic skin and reduces pore size • Gives the skin a healthy glow 5. Caution (during use) • Never use on dry skin. A medium must always be applied • Do not use on the stomach area of pregnant women • Do not use on people with pacemakers (any electrical or rhythmic heart regulating device) • Do not use on people with known heart conditions • Always use ultrasonic electrodes with sufficient media (moisturiser or serum on the skin) • Ultrasonic treatment is suitable for all skin types – the massage time and machine settings are varied for each of the different skin types. • For sensitive skins – reduce the treatment time to ‘3-5min’ and ensure the power setting is at its lowest level to start with. 6. Combining ultrasound treatments Ultrasonic exfoliation lends itself perfectly as an after treatment for micro-dermabrasion, glycolic and other peels. It removes dead cells and any leftover crystals, better than most cleansing techniques. You can help to speed up the healing and rejuvenation process of your client’s skin, by inducing water soluble products into the client’s skin with ultrasound after you have completed the cleansing process.
.Treatment (product penetration) . The treatment of using both ultrasound & cosmetic products consists of, (a) the intensity of the ultrasonic wave, (b) the period of treatment and (c) course of treatment length. Points for attention during the course of the treatment are that the intensity for facial massage should be controlled between 0.5-1.25W/cm2 . . The period of the treatment for the entire face is generally between 5 and 15 minutes per treatment. However, prolonging each treatment will not multiply or improve its effectiveness. . The course length may be decided according to different skin conditions: acne 3-5 times, chronic issues, such as pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation, scars, acne rosacea, darkened eye-rim, eye bags, wrinkles etc, once every 2-3 days. One course usually consists of 10 sessions. Preventative treatment: 1 or 2 times every week. If the patient’s condition worsens during the specific treatment course, reduce the frequency of treatment (extend intervals between treatment) or reduce the intensity and extend the course of treatment. The interval between the each treatment should be 1-2 weeks. If the treatment required is over 3-4 courses, then the interval between treatments may be prolonged after the second treatment session. . The ultrasonic massage instrument has two kinds of wave state. The first is a ‘successive’ (continuous) wave , and the second is a ‘pulse’ (intermittent) wave.
The first is a continuous ultrasound wave; whose intensity has a remarkably beneficial effect on the skin. The second is an intermittent (short) pulsing of ultrasound waves which lasts for a tiny fraction of a second. Therefore the important characteristic’s of these ‘pulse’ waves is that, the heat generated is markedly reduced, so that the ‘mechanical action’ of the ultrasound wave can be brought into full effect without client discomfort. The choice of wave state is as follows: generally, the pulse (intermittent wave form) state is used for the inflamed tissue areas (redness etc.) or for use on dilated capillaries, while the continuous (constant wave form) state is suitable for all other treatment types.
. Method Ultrasonic treatment utilises direct ‘touching’ radiation. During the treatment, the ultrasonic head must be pressed against the surface of the skin. Please note a suitable conductive agent (prescribed product) should always be used between the ultrasound head and the skin. Never use on dry skin only. The ultrasound head (generator) should be gently and slowly moved over the treatment area in circular or linear (back and forth) motion, dependant on the size of area being treated.
. Steps 1. Before treatment, cleanse/tone the treatment area with the prescribed skin type products. 2. Remove any product residue prior to steaming the face for 10 minutes. 3. Cleanse the treatment area again to remove any dirt or debris on the face (milia/porous secretions etc) so as to prevent the ultrasonic waves from pushing it back into the skin. 4. Gently tone over every part of the face (or treatment area) with the correct astringent. 5. After wiping off the astringent, the skin will be thoroughly cleansed for optimum protection. 6. After analysis of the face, carefully select the suitably prescribed product. 7. Apply a sufficient amount of prescribed product to the treatment area. 8. Plug in the machine to the mains and power up the unit. Push the “POWER” button and select the “ULTRASONIC” function; then adjust the intensity of the ‘output’ according to “U/Energy” LED display, generally in the green and the yellow section. Output may vary with skin quality, age, and tolerance of the patient. 9. Select the desired wave state, successive (continuous) wave ( ), or pulse wave ( ) according to the chosen treatment, by switching the “STATE” button. 10. Hold the ultrasonic probe firmly and begin to massage the treatment area to which the prescribed product has been applied. Treatment time should vary dependant on the size of the treatment area in question. A standard (whole) facial area should take 10-15 mins of repetitive massage. 11. Wash and sterilise the ultrasonic head after each and every treatment.
. Notes 1. 2. 3. 4.
Always inspect the cables for signs of damage prior to use. Always cleanse before treatment. Always ensure adequate product is applied for 15 mins of treatment. The heat output of the ultrasound generator corresponds directly to the power output selected. Generally, lower output is used in facials and higher output for body treatments. Always confirm client comfort to ensure that the output (temperature) is not ‘too high’. 5. If the treatment area is small or sensitive, use the ‘eye’ probe and ensure the energy output should be limited between 0.5-0.75W/cm (the green LED’s on the “ENERGY” display). The treatment time may be reduced to 8-10minutes.
6. A treatment course is generally around 10 sessions in total, with a minimum rest period of 1 day between sessions. If other facial treatments are being conducted to the same area, a minimum rest period of 7 days should be observed between treatments. 7. If the ultrasound generator of choice does not appear to have an output, please check that the correct probe & output socket for the chosen treatment has been selected. 8. The ultrasound probes should be cleaned with clean water (not hot) using a clean soft cloth and then chemically sterilised using the appropriate sterilisation fluid. Dry the probe carefully after sterilisng and store safely in its holder on the trolley in between uses. NOTE: - do not immerse the probe in any fluid! Always sterilize the probes again prior to use with a ‘steri-wipe’ type product of your choice.
. CAUTION (during use) 1. Do not leave any of the ultrasound probes turned on whilst unattended, otherwise ‘over heating’ will occur and this may result in damage to the probe or reduction of its working lifespan. 2. Do not attempt to separate the stainless steel generator from its rubber holder (handle), any attempt to do so, may cause irreparable damage to the generator. Do not attempt to open any attachment or machine. The machine and attachments have no user changeable parts. All items should be returned to your purchasing agent or authorised repair centre
GALVANIC . Contra-indications • Pacemaker (any electrical or rhythmic heart regulating device) • Pregnancy • Thrombosis/Phlebitis • Skin diseases • Operations (within last 6 months) • Silicone implants • Hypersensitive or vascular skins
. Iono theory The galvanic current is a constant and direct current (D.C.) rectified to a safe low – voltage level. This direct current flows in one direction only and has adjustable polarity. When current is flowing, one electrode will always be negatively charged and the other positively. Chemical changes are produced when this current is passed through certain solutions containing acids and salts. Chemical effects are also produced when a galvanic current is passed through the tissue and fluids of the body. The Galvanic machine: The galvanic machine has two important functions during a facial treatment. Its main function is to introduce water soluble products into the skin, and this process is called ionophoresis. When using a galvanic current, there are two poles with a selective negative (-) or positive (+) polarity output to choose from. Positive pole (ANODE) and Negative pole (CATHODE) • Produces acid reaction • Produces alkaline reaction • Soothes nerves • Stimulates nerves • Decreases blood supply • Increases blood supply • Hardens tissue • Softens tissue
The positive pole may be used: • To close the follicles (pores) after the facial treatment • To decrease redness, as in mild acne. • To prevent inflammation after comedone and blemish treatment • To force acid pH solutions, such as astringent, into the skin. The negative pole may be used for the following conditions: • To stimulate the circulation of blood to dry skin. • To force desincrustation lotion (alkaline pH solution) into the skin. Do not use the galvanic current over an area with any broken capillaries.
Desincrustation: describes a process that softens and liquefies grease deposits which are accumulations of sebum in the follicles. This sebum is usually filled with dead cells, makeup and grease. In order to do a desincrustation treatment, an alkaline solution is used to penetrate the follicle and dissolve the debris. It is important to remove all traces of massage cream and cleanser from the skin before starting the desincrustation treatment, as any residual desincrusation lotion will emulsify the products and may force them into the follicles.
Ionisation: is the forcing of a solution or cream into the skin. The ions of electricity from the positive pole will pass through a moisturising cream or lotion that has been applied to the client’s face and assure deeper penetration of the product into the skin. In order for the ionisation to work properly, the cream or lotion applied to the face must be water soluble (o/w), such as moisturiser or ‘vanishing’ type cream. Heavy creams that do not dissolve in water (w/o) and leave an oily film on the skin will not penetrated due to their larger molecular structure.
. Method . Connect the required galvanic probes (roller or ball) to the output lead which is inserted in the galvanic output socket on the rear of the machine. Ensure this is done prior to switching on or powering up the machine. The client then holds the metal pole (where present), and the therapist holds the handle of the roller. . Changing polarity of the probes is done by adjusting leading in (+R) and leading out (-G) button. The treatment area must be cleansed and dried before penetrating any products into the tissue. Turn the electrode button to (+R). Now the probes are positive, whilst the indifferent pole is negative. You can then introduce the chosen product to the treatment area. You may then cover the probe (or face) with a piece of cotton or sponge that has your product on it, or you may use directly, with the probe onto the skins surface which is generously covered with the desired product. Whilst doing desincrustation, you should change the electrode polarity button to (-G), now the probe is negative while the indifferent pole is positive. Cover the probe with a piece of cotton or sponge that has been soaked in the alkaline solution (chosen astringent) before doing this treatment. This is done to balance the skin PH and aid in the breakdown and removal of debris & grease/oil from the skin.
NB: ‘+ & R’ refers to positive and ‘R’ red LED whilst ‘- & G’ refers to negative and ‘G’ Green LED. . Power on “IONOS”, select the operational polarity for the treatment (+ or -), then turn the “I/Energy” level to the minimum. Touch the treatment area with the probes, then slowly adjust the “I/Energy” level to appropriate intensity (usually to the point just before the client feels a mild tingling sensation). Smoothly slide the chosen probes over the treatment area. NB: When using a cotton or linen with the probes (or as a shroud) it should be noted that, the more moisture on the cotton or linen pads/mask, the more effective the treatment will be.
VACUUM & SPRAY Vacuum - Using the desired glass vacuum attachment to aid with the extraction of black-head (comedone), white-head (milia), and acne or blockages of the pores, everyday dirt and grease including stubborn make-up. To improve the circulatory system and metabolism of the skin Spray - Use the spray bottle to spray toner, or astringent lotion to diminish any visible areas of inflammation or redness. The spray function also helps to calm and comfort and the skin, and close pores after treatment.
.Method Turn on the ‘Power’ button 1) Vacuum: First turn on the vac-spray ‘Power’ button. Then select the ‘Vacuum’ intensity to meet your requirements by opening or closing the intensity valve. Connect the vacuum air pipe to the corresponding vacuum socket on the rear of the machine, and then connect the other end of the pipe to the (chosen) small glass vontuse. 4 x small glass vontuse attachments are included giving you the option to perform all types of facial vacuuming. You may also improve vacuum control by using your forefinger over the vacuum release hole on each vontuse. It is advisable (for cleaning & machine longevity) to insert some absorbent cotton wool into the glass vacuum attachments to act as a ‘disposable filter’ stopping any dirt or debris from being vacuumed into the pipe, which will prevent debris entering the vacuum pump and causing damage to the machine. The glass vacuum vontuse must not be held in one position too long, to prevent hematoma occurring on the face. Vacuum pressure is not instantaneous and may take a few seconds to build up when the pump is first switched on. It is advisable to use a small piece of cotton wool over the vacuum hole (on the hand piece) and between your finger, to give increased control over the vacuum pressure release. 2) Spray: First turn on “VAC-SPRAY”, connect one end of the spray air pipe to the corresponding spray output nozzle on the machine, then connect the other end to the small spray bottle inlet nozzle. Two spray bottles are supplied so that they may contain different liquids for use in treatments. To operate the spray bottle, simply cover the ‘top’ vacuum nozzle with your index finger which will allow the release of the desired liquid from the spray canister. To stop the flow of spray, simply remove your finger from the nozzle and the vacuum seal will be broken. Always spray in a downward direction from the forehead during use. Care should be taken to prevent liquid entering the nasal cavities, and clients should be asked to close their eyes and mouth during this treatment. Maintain an adequate distance from the face whilst spraying so the effect is felt as a gentle mist landing on the skin. .Notes Normal use should not last longer than 5 minutes per session; prolonged use may cause your machine pump to overheat. If the pump stops working due to ‘over-heating’ switch off the machine and allow a 10 minute ‘cool-down’ period before trying using again. Always switch the unit off immediately after use and never leave running whilst unattended.
.CAUTION Always ensure the spray pipe is on the correct nozzle at the machine, to prevent ‘accidental’ vacuuming of any spray solution into the pump, as this will damage your machine pump and invalidate your manufacturer’s warranty. Do not work the vac/spray pump for extended periods without ‘cool-down’ time between treatments, to prevent over heating of the pump and damage to the machine, any damage caused by overheating of the pump, is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
