Typical Ultrasound Treatment

What is Ultrasound?  Ultrasound is simply high frequency sound waves above the range that humans can hear.  It is applied to your body through a transducer “head” of the ultrasound  machine.  A conductive agent/gel is used to help the sound waves to travel into rather than bounce off the skin.  The intensity of the ultrasound can be rather easily adjusted to fit your comfort & needs.

Is it safe?  Medical Ultrasound research actually goes back to the late 1930's and 40's.  It is now used quite extensively for physical therapy and rehabilitation since the 1960's treating trauma and injury.  Today, it is very commonly used in sports medicine not only treating acute injuries but preventing over use problems.

What are the benefits?  Increases blood flow to well defined areas, softens connective tissue and scar tissue, and reduces muscle spasms.  As well ultrasound can “drive” protective and therapeutic gels deeper into the skin than just manually rubbing the area.  Using Ultrasound before your filler treatment enhances the numbing effect of the topical anesthetic.

Ultrasound Equipment

How is it done?  Our Esthetician will apply the therapeutic copper gel to the treated area and then place the head onto the skin.  Usually, she will move the head  in a small circular motion and depending on the setting you may feel a pleasant warmth.  Treatments usually last a few minutes while delivering the protective gel deeper into your skin.

When should I do Ultrasound?  This is a great addition after treatments such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Microdermabrasion as well as before filler injections.  It enhances healing and soothing of the skin while relaxing your muscles so it can be done at any given time.  Please call for a complementary consultation or email at morebeautyinfo@southshorebeauty.com
