The Ultrasonic Actuator handpiece contains ceramic/quartz transducers that when excited by an electrical current emit rapid vibrations, 27,000 per second. The vibrations propel impurities to the skin surface and cause dead skin cells to become dislodged. The handpiece is then used to deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate the epidermis. The Ultrasonic Actuator provides a far gentler and less aggressive method of skin exfoliation than traditional microdermabrasion.
The handpiece can also be set to a specific frequency to enhance the absorption of skin care products using sonophoresis (ultrasound waves), to push the products deeper into the skin.
The Ultrasonic Actuator is used in the following treatments:
