LED light therapy. LED light therapy works by using four specific wavelengths for instant access to photo receptors in order to treat blemishes, pigmentation disorders, redness and inflammation, and photoaging. LED light therapy is such a powerful tool that it can be used as a treatment on its own, or to maximize the benefits of other therapies and minimize related side effects and complications. It also helps enhance procedures such as laser hair removal, intense pulsed light (IPL), chemical peels, dermal fillers, surgical treatments like laser resurfacing, and can be used before or after surgical procedures to promote healing by speeding up recovery.1

Microcurrent. Microcurrent can help reshape muscle by lifting and tightening both the face and body. It also promotes the regeneration of muscle tissue, helps increase cellular functions, accelerates wound-healing, and increases blood and lymphatic flow. Amazingly, 20 minutes of microcurrent is equivalent to four hours of deep tissue massage.2 Microcurrent helps increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for healthy cellular function, and triggers DNA regeneration and cell repair, which ensures better communication between cell nucleus and intercellular energy.3

Ultrasound. Ultrasound uses acoustic sound waves to therapeutically induce a thermal effect for maximum transdermal infusion. It offers a powerful cellular massage of three million vibrations per second versus the three vibrations per second of a conventional massage. The effects of this therapeutic modality include deep tissue heating and nonthermal tissue manipulation. The most important factor is the constant heating of the tissues that initiates a wound-healing response, stimulating fibroblasts, which, in turn, help synthesize collagen and elastin. Ultrasound helps restore dermal density, which helps produce tighter skin, and decreased fine lines and wrinkles.

Electroporation. Electroporation enables the performance of transdermal, needleless mesotherapy. This modality applies advanced electrical currents to speed up collagen regeneration and break down the molecular structure of products for increased product saturation, allowing nutrients to help rebuild the dermal/epidermal junction.

Results and repeat visits

The skin care industry today is looking to deliver one thing above all else—dramatic and instant results. Through education, spa professionals can help ensure repeat visits for client maintenance, which will benefit the profitability of any spa. Be sure to keep up-to-date and become familiar with the latest cutting-edge technology that is now offered through science in the spa industry. These modalities are not only results-oriented, but they are also noninvasive, allowing clients to relax and enjoy the complete package of their experience.
