Microdermabrasion vs. Ultrasound for Fine Lines and Facial Wrinkles

Ultrasound Facial in Sausalito and SonomaMicrodermabrasion is a popular technique for removing fine lines and facial wrinkles. In microdermabrasion, a trained technician applies a wand that provides a steady spray of abrasive crystals directly on wrinkled or pigmented skin.

Acting a little like a miniature sandblaster, these crystals lift the outermost layers of the skin—it is to be hoped, without any bleeding—and allow new skin to grow back in without creases, fine lines, wrinkles, or age spots.

Microdermabrasion can kill healthy skin

Microdermabrasion is a kinder, gentler alternative to cosmetic surgery. Still there is one major problem with the technique. Microdermabrasion kills healthy skin. The technique relies on the hope that new skin will come back without blemishes. Moreover, nothing in dermabrasion supports healthy skin with needed vitamins, essential fatty acids, or antioxidants.

Ultrasound Skin Treatment does not harm healthy skin cells

Ultrasound is a better way to attack fine lines and wrinkles, especially for people who are under 60. Ultrasound bombards the skin with 1,000,000 to 1,800,000 gentle pulses of sound every second. This setting is about 1/10 to 1/5 the frequency used in medical imaging. The reason skin care ultrasound operates at a lower, gentler frequency is that it is the perfect amount of energy for opening micro-channels in the skin.
For a few thousandths of a second, ultrasound can move all the living cells in the skin in an arrangement allowing a molecule-sized channel to form. This channel is wide enough for a molecule of a nutrient or antioxidant, but not wide enough for an infectious microorganism or dirt particle. For a few thousandths of a second, nutrients applied directly to the skin can travel exactly where they are needed. And a few thousandths of a second is enough for astonishing effects.
But that's not the only benefit of ultrasound. Ultrasound is calibrated to separate dead skin cells from the skin, while leaving healthy skin cells intact. Removing the extra matte from the skin, leaves the skin a little more flexible after each treatment, so that fine lines and wrinkles slowly disappear. Ultrasound treatment also gives the smooth an even finish that makes it easier to apply makeup for even texture and tone.
