Machines for Skin

How machines help to keep your skin look beautiful

There was a time not so long ago when any skin rejuvenation processes required extensive surgical intervention and prolonged downtime. Scars from face lifts behind the hairline were not uncommon either. Today all that has changed radically. Modern state of the art machinery running on advanced cutting edge technologies has simplified skin treatment procedures to an extent where patients can have a session of facial freshening completed in under a half an hour and resume normal routine almost immediately.

Here are a few of the processes that have revolutionised skin rejuvenation procedures in the aesthetic beauty care industry.

IPL laser machines

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser machines harnesses the power of light energy for skin treatment procedures. Beams of light are directed at the area under treatment. The wavelengths enter the top layer of the skin deep enough to stimulate production of collagen. This is the substance that ensures that the skin is fresh and looks tight and young.

However, the body’s own production of collagen stops when a person is around 25 years of age and then begins the degeneration process. This change manifests itself much later in the form of fines lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, crow’s feet around the eyes and black and acne spots.

The laser targets the dermal layer and induces production of collagen again, making way for a fresh and new look.

Plasma surface treatment machine

Plasma skin regeneration (PSR) has a dramatic skin improvement effect by enhancing texture and tone and eradicating birth marks and acne spots and scars. It helps to do away with fine lines and wrinkles, skin pigmentation such as black marks, coffee marks and acne scars. This non laser technology delivers energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate skin and is one of the technologies approved by FDA and clinically proven to be effective.

To understand how PSR works, it is necessary to know the ageing process. As the body ages, the epidermis becomes thinner and blemishes become more stark. The loss of collagen further hastens formation of fine facial lines and wrinkles. A plasma surface treatment machine delivers plasma instead of light or ultrasound energy. A handpiece emits millisecond pulses of nitrogen based plasma-containing energy which heats up the skin’s surface to remove photo-damaged epidermal cells. It also boosts production of collagen which over time results in skin freshening and rejuvenation.

High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) face lifting

Hifu face lifting machine has a procedure that harnesses the power of ultrasound for skin rejuvenation treatments. It is very effective for treatment of sagging eyelids, elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture and tone, large pores and blurred jaw line. All these aspects give an overall tired look and this non-surgical face lift is ideal to eliminate that. This is one reason why this process has immensely gained in popularity worldwide. The main areas of the body where ultrasound therapy can be worked on are brows and forehead, chin, neck and stomach including reduction of stretch marks there.

HIFU or non-invasive ultrasound machines generate low levels of heat which is directed on the area under treatment. This stimulates the cells which results in an increase in collagen production and tissue rejuvenation, making for a fresh and young look. With the elasticity restored, the skin has a more supple and soft feel and texture.

These are some of the modern cutting edge machines to keep your skin looking beautiful.

In the past offensive ingredients like parabens have been replaced by the less toxic phenoxyethanol. Environmentally conscious labs are now carrying out extensive research on clean preservatives like willow bark. Undoubtedly it is a huge challenge for research teams to offer toxic free preservatives that are as effective as their previous counterparts in keeping harmful bacteria at bay from formulations.
  • An app for the skin – You probably use the same type of skin care products every day on your face. But did you know that skin conditions might change daily and you will need to know which formulation will be effective on any given day? An app for this is being developed which will give you data of everything that you should know about your skin – primarily the water levels and collagen levels – on a daily basis. After this, the app can be linked to a printer to get detailed advice on which type of cream or a combination of more will be ideal for your skin that day. It might sound farfetched but this app is really under development and will hit the markets soon.

These treatments are done in an hour at the most and do not have any downtime or recuperation periods.
  • “Free From” trend – The world today has moved away from simply focussing on the skin and its optimised care to an awareness of what the formulations are made from. No more is a glowing skin the only concern, what it takes to achieve one is more talked about. Hence there is the “gluten free”, “cruelty free” and even “vegan” options that denote creams and lotions made from natural ingredients without addition of any toxic and harsh chemicals. All cosmetic brands were in the past tested on animals and only when it showed no unpleasant effects were they certified to be used on humans. Now testing of cosmetic products on animals is not looked on favourably and is even banned in certain countries of the world
