ULTRADERM BESPOKE TREATMENT
The Ultraderm Machine combines two different technologies.
Galvanic: Desincrustation – a deep cleansing and exfoliating treatment.
Iontophoresis – pushing active ingredients into the skin by the use of ionisable products.
High Frequency: Direct – is traditionally used to dry an oily skin, due to the antibacterial and germicidal properties of the Ozone that is produced during treatment.
High Frequency: Viennese Massage : Indirect – provides a warming, soothing, massage, ideally suited to dry, dehydrated or mature skin.
Both methods can be applied to the face and body. Beneficial for acne break outs on the back. See High Frequency Back Treatment
The technologies incorporated in this machine can be used to create treatments for most skin types.
The Cleansing process ( Desincrustation) cleanses, brightens and exfoliates the skin. It allows for the easy extraction of comedones. Especially effective on congested skin when using a combination of Galvanic Cleanse and Direct High Frequency.
The skin is more receptive to active ingredients being propelled into the skin by the process Iontophoresis. The products used for this process are ionisable ( contain negative and positive ions) thus penetrating the skins layers to add collagen for plumping and hydration for an aging skin or antibacterial ingredients for congested and breakout prone skin.
Direct High Frequency regulates the secretion of Sebum and has an anti bacterial effect on the skin.
Indirect High Frequency allows for a more stimulating massage. There is an increased flow of blood and Lymph making the skin work more efficiently. This is a wonderful Massage called the “viennese Massage” allowing the current to travel through the therapists fingers. The Viennese massage is often an overlooked massage technique, and I would like to introduce this timeless technique back on to your list of massage choices. This technique is relaxing and healing, and it offers both hydrating and anti-aging benefits to dry, lackluster, premature aging clients.
High Frequency Types
At one time, high frequency treatments were considered an essential staple for skin revitalizing treatments by estheticians. Today, there are fewer spas or clinics that offer these treatments to clients. This may be due to lack of training and understanding on how to perform a high frequency treatment. This miseducation has allowed this essential skin treatment to somehow vanish from today’s spa and clinic menus. We are proud at Beauty Basics to be able to offer this timeless classic Facial.
Once the skin has been cleansed and toned the Desincrustant Gel is applied to the skin. The facial electrodes are attached to the machine, the current level selected and the treatment applied evenly over the face and neck causing a reaction on the skins surface that will result in cleansing, brightening and exfoliation.
The Desincrustant gel is removed and an active Treatment Gel is applied, the process of Iontophoresis is used to propel active ingredients deep into the skin.
The selection of product and the duration of each treatment area is indicated by the skin type.
Parameters are provided for the intensity of current during the treatment.
The treatment can be completed with a mask which is then removed and a moisturiser is applied.
See MONUHUB for a full range of Monu treatment products.
This treatment offers an option for younger clients who still have problems with congested skins.
It can be sold as a course of treatments or is effective as a one off treatment to brighten and exfoliate the skin.
Clients will notice their skin looks brighter and cleaner and that make up application is smoother.
Direct High Frequency
After cleansing, toning and exfoliating the skin, Ozone cream is applied to the face and neck and covered with a thin sheet of gauze.
A glass rod is selected according to the area to be treated and inserted in the handle. Current is passed down the glass rod, it will ‘crackle’ as there is a gas contained in the glass rod which will glow either Orange ( Neon) or Purple/ Blue ( Argon) , but does not affect the treatment.
The rod is the applied directly onto the gauze and is moved smoothly and evenly over the complete area. Time of application of the treatment is indicated by skin type, the more congested the skin the longer the application.
Indirect High Frequency
Prepare the skin as for Direct High Frequency and the apply a treatment cream or oil to the face and neck.
The client holds the indifferent electrode whilst the Therapist massages the face and neck.
This is a highly effective treatment that intensifies the effect of the massage so that the skin becomes more active and receptive to the absorption of active ingredients.
Both treatments can be completed with a mask which is then removed, followed by the application of a treatment cream to finish.
