Interested in trying the latest tech-based beauty treatment? Head over to Elite Skin Care in San Mateo, California.
Founder and master esthetician, Liza Wong, offers an exclusive sequential ultrasound facial. Wong is currently the only esthetician in the United States to have a sequential ultrasound facial machine cleared by the FDA for esthetic use.
"The machine is a French-made sequential ultrasound, FDA-cleared facial machine, which has advantages over traditional ultrasound machines because of a varying wavelength, which more effectively stimulates collagen production deep in the skin," says Wong. "It's an exclusive advanced patented approach to treating skin for the face, neck and décolleté areas."
Utilizing the machine's four integrated functions produces an anti-aging facial that is non-invasive and features no downtime for the client.
First, the skin is gently exfoliated using an ultrasonic spatula. Next, radio frequency signals are emitted, assisting with collagen building. Radio frequency causes collagen fibers to contract in order to tighten and firm the skin. Then, sequential ultrasound treatment is incorporated with revolving luminology color light therapy utilizing LED light to maximize reactivation of the metabolic process.
This translates to smoothing of the skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as redefining contours of the face.
According to Wong, this "high-tech, sequential ultrasound facial machine is the only one known in the United States" and the "rejuvenating, relaxing" treatment is recommended for women in their thirties and above.
Clients love the results of the sequential ultrasound treatment, notes the skin pro: "They found the treatment very relaxing and saw immediate glowing and firming results."
The sequential ultrasound facial treatment is an hour and a half long and costs $225. For optimum results, a series of treatments is recommended.
