“The aging process occurs at each level of the skin. We begin aging when the epidermis’ hydrolipidic film is impaired. Cell renewal begins to slow, causing the skin to lose its radiance and become dull. The dermis loses its moisture, causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. Collagen production, as well as the skin’s ability to repair itself, diminish. The results are deepening wrinkles and the loss of elasticity in muscles, causing sagging jowls and deep nasolabial folds. Medical esthetic technology offers true rejuvenating treatments. These are able to target and provide an effective solution that can be focused at each of the layers of the skin where aging problems occur: the epidermis, dermis and muscle level.”

“Looking for products with well-rounded formulations and interesting delivery technology will ensure better results for a medical spa’s patients. A favorable treatment result, as well as results from using home-care products, deepen the trust relationship and commitment between the patient and technician.”

“FIR energy has been used widely in the health and wellness industries throughout the world—especially in Germany, Japan, Korea and China. It also is being used in vital equipment in our space program. FIR energy—especially that in the range of 8–14 micron meters—has been found to be a vital source of booster energy for human beings. It penetrates deep into tissues, invigorating their cellular activities and, as a result, improving the overall well-being of the individual.”
