Frequently Asked Questions
Is your skin looking dull, tired and or dehydrated? The Vitamin Infusion is the perfect treatment to get that instant zing back into your skin.
This is an ideal treatment if you have a special night out or a big occasion.
- Exfoliation with steam and extractions
- A thick layer of anti-aging and corrective serums will be applied to the skin. The Sonophoresis probe will transport the molecules into the skin (see figure 1).
- The Alginate Masque will be applied over the whole face. A small microcurrent will be attached with clips at the top and bottom of the face. This microcurrent, also called iontophoresis, allows the anti-aging serums to be transported into the deep dermis of the skin, far deeper than simply applying the serums by hand (see figure 2).
- Finishing with eye and lip products, serums, moisturizer and an SPF 50.
IMPORTANT: Where normal creams will penetrate between 1.4%- 4% into the skin, low-frequency sonophoresis gives your skin 40x the penetration. It will instantly soften fine lines while leaving the skin plump and hydrated.
This is a relaxing, pain-free treatment with no downtime. Redness may occur underneath the electrodes, but this will disappear right after the treatment.
The initial consultation is approximately 20 minutes and treatment will take approximately 60 minutes.
