DUAL ULTRASOUND® FACIAL

Ultrasound therapy for aesthetic medicine and dermatology

Illumia-Local-Dynamic-Micromassage

Illumia's Dual Ultrasound® Facial is a signature facial that uses innovative technology specially developed to treat different aesthetical and dermatological conditions. 

Dual Ultrasound® uses dual frequency ultrasonic waves with frequencies of great speed. As compared to conventional ultrasound therapy, the intensity of the Dual Ultrasound® treatment's rapid oscillating waves have proven to be more powerful (100 - 1000X per second) and effective, deeply micro-massaging facial tissues to improve skin firmness and vitality.

Reducing Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs)

The key innovation of Dual Ultrasound® is its ability to degrade Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs). MMPs are a group of enzymes in the human body that manifest themselves in various medical conditions such as Acne, Eczema, Dermatitis, Ulcers and Cancer. In skin ageing, MMPs values have been found to be 500 to 1000 times above normal levels.

Dual Ultrasound® micro-massages have been scientifically proven to reduce MMPs values which in turn reduces the damaging effect of these enzymes on tissues. Post-treatment, MMPs values are much lower and tissue metabolism returns to normal levels. This leads to a recovery of various medical conditions and significant skin improvement such as:

 

Aesthetic Medicine

  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Skin tightening and lifting
  • Skin rejuvenation

Dermatology

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Chronic ulcers
  • Scars and keloids
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

Building Skin Immunity

Aside from actively encouraging skin healing, Dual Ultrasound® also strengthens the skin’s immunity. It does this by stimulating the production of Heat Shock Proteins (HSPs), which are important in maintaining a healthy skin barrier and to combat stressful conditions such as skin injury, wound healing, prolonged exposure to sun and variable weather conditions.

Skin Rehydration

Micro-massage is an excellent therapy to improve moisture content in our skin. It increases the content of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which accelerates healthy metabolism and stimulates our skin to maintain healthy moisture levels.
