In the next phase, antioxidants are applied to the skin by using a light manual massage. A bipolar balance waveform current then is used with special electrodes to deliver the product into deeper layers of the skin, known as transdermal delivery. Antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C and E, are scavengers of free radicals—unbalanced electrons that are responsible for accelerating the aging process.

Depending on the severity of the skin problem and the age of the client, typically six to 10 corrective treatments are needed. One maintenance treatment each month will preserve the results. Depending on the number of modalities used per treatment and the region where the spa is located, the price usually varies from $125–175.

More is better?

Incorporating combination esthetic therapies is an important business step because no single modality adequately can address the complex picture of the aging face. Multiplatform devices can offer the best combination of microdermabrasion, light-based modalities and electrical currents to treat various client needs. This exciting technological breakthrough enables spas to offer both immediate visible results and long-term sustainable improvement.
