Why use L.E.D. Light Therapy? Interesting Facts

Why use L.E.D. Light Therapy? Interesting Facts

Did you know L.E.D. Light can help with chronic pain. It can take years off your face. And it can even help fight acne. A good quality higher-wattage L.E.D light Therapy machine can have amazing effects on the human body without downtime, redness, or heating issues.

A durable and excellent photo-rejuvenation device used for serious skin care. It uses infrared and visible red wavelengths of light to stimulate cellular activity and rejuvenate the skin.

This state-of-the-art photo rejuvenation skin care was developed as a result of the scientific concept that our body's cells are actually photoreceptive. This unique process utilizes the amazing benefits of Diode Light to restore the skin's natural cellular activity.

LED light therapy is administered over a 4 to 6-week period in a series of 4 to 6 sessions lasting only 30 minutes each. There is no recovery time and sessions provide a gradual, natural improvement from the first session. The entire session is very safe while providing excellent long-term results. The skin is repaired from within and results are visible for all to see.

LED Light Therapy, also known as Photo Rejuvenation is the ultimate low downtime procedure. Active people who do not want to take time off from their business and social functions can benefit without inconvenience.

Photo rejuvenation sessions stimulate new collagen formation by delivering pulses of light to the skin.  New collagen is produced after a series of these easy pain-free sessions, revealing healthier, younger-looking skin.

Skin conditions that can be improved by Photo Rejuvenation:

  • Coarse, Rough Skin
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Sun Damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Pigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Dilated Capillaries
  • Brown Age Spots
  • Redness
  • Dark Eye Circles

While laser resurfacing, chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, and facelifts are all effective sessions for aging skin, LED Photo Rejuvenation Light Facials are pain-free, inexpensive, and require no downtime at all. Treatments are comfortable and relaxing. Patients may notice an improvement after their first session. The skin will feel smoother and will have even more tone.

Unlike many conventional cosmetic laser procedures, the unit activates the collagen and refreshes the entire face. It provides subtle and immediate results achieved over several sessions. This gradual approach allows you to return quickly to work or routine activities without a recovery period. It also eliminates any discomfort and the likelihood of side effects.

For fine lines, age spots, broken capillaries, enlarged pores, coarse skin, and mottled pigmentation, it reduces the signs of aging while it restores a highly satisfactory youthful smoothness.


1. Promotes Collagen Production
2. Increases Oxygenation and Moisture
3. Increases Inner Skin Firmness
4. Accelerates Skin Repair
5. Effective therapy for Rosacea - reducing overall redness and dilated capillaries
6. No downtime

Today, LED Lights come in a variety of devices for salon or home use. Of course, home devices are not as powerful as equipment used by medical spas or doctor's offices, but they can be used more frequently, which will still yield excellent results.

What is Ultrasonic for Fat Loss?

What is Ultrasonic for Fat Loss?


Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such a quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated.  This happens with sound waves measured in Megahertz. A MHz or Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz and a rating of 40KHz to 5 MHz is used in an ultrasonic treatment.
This type of sound wave can destroy the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs.
Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes.
The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid, and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.
Clients see the results and are pleased with the increase in their body’s fat cell metabolism. Clients can often see results after the first two hours after using Ultrasonic Cavitation and RF Therapy. 


Ultrasonic cavitation therapy makes it possible to apply concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy to specific treatment areas. This type of therapy targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membranes through a series of microscopic implosions. Once the fat cell membrane (adipose tissue) is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while water-soluble glycerol is transported to the circulatory system and used as energy.
Tri-polar Radio Frequency or RF Tripolar RF metabolizes the large fat granules that were exploded by the first cavitation treatment. Heat forces collagen fibers to contract in the subcutaneous and dermis layers, which immediately tighten. New collagen is produced as Fibroblast metabolism is increased, creating a long-term result of smoother and firmer skin. Since RF energy affects the deeper dermal layers, a decrease in deep wrinkles, and thicker and firmer skin. RF promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin. 

Lipolysis (mono-polar Radio Frequency combined with cavitation), causes the remaining adipose tissue (fat cell membrane) to explode and forces the removal of triglycerides as well as a tightening of the skin. The sub-dermis, where cellulite is found, is heated by the ultra-power mono-polar radio frequency waves which cause a tightening and slimming appearance on cellulite tissues.

What Can You Expectt When Having Radio Frequency/Cavitation Treatments?

What Can You Expectt When Having Radio Frequency/Cavitation Treatments?

Radiofrequency body contouring (also known as skin tightening) is becoming all kinds of popular as it removes fat, tightens the skin and improves tone, without any pain or downtime at all!
 Radiofrequency technology offers a non-invasive, pain-free body treatment to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, firm skin, boost collagen production, and tackle any pesky fatty deposits that won’t budge with exercise.
It’s a pretty versatile treatment as it can also help reduce flabby skin, tighten bat wings, contour and tighten a post-pregnancy tummy, reduce fine lines and wrinkles (on the face and body), reduce saddle bags, and even lift and tighten your bum.

How does it work? The radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers, and fat cells drain and then shrink, while those all-important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibers. The effect of this is tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin with a visible ‘lift’. Fat cells are reduced and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.

What is the treatment like? The treatment itself is surprisingly relaxing. Each area on your body is treated for 20-30 minutes. All that’s required is to show your technician your problem areas lie back on the treatment bed and wait for the magic to begin. The technique is so relaxing that actually, it’s easy to fall fast asleep – always a sign of a good treatment.

When can I expect to see results?
Most patients will be able to notice an immediate result in the tightness of their skin, but results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment too. Skin is remarkably smoother and muscle tone is more visible too. Normally, multiple sessions are required, generally 1 every 2 weeks until you’ve had about 8-12 treatments in total, this depends on the results you want and the advice of your aesthetic practitioner.

Are there any side effects? Normally there are no side effects from the treatment, but some people might find the treatment area is a little red post-treatment; this usually resolves after 30 minutes post-treatment

Can I do a radiofrequency treatment at home? Yes. There are home devices available. However, great caution must be observed. This is a serious piece of equipment and requires education to be performed safely and successfully. Find a vendor that provides training.

Ultrasound Cavitation: How Effective Is It?

Ultrasound Cavitation: How Effective Is It?

One of the latest developments in the treatment of cellulite is ultrasound cavitation. Extremely effective, it can reduce cellulite and fat on the body. This technique uses machines that are able to direct high energy waves. Once these waves hit the body, they create micro bubbles that are comprised of vapor. These bubbles occur within the fat tissue and among interstitial liquid. Called the cavitation effect, this technique causes the interstitial liquid to transition between several phases. It starts to expand and contract. Before long, fat cells implode and the water and fat within them is released into the body’s tissue. This liquid and fat is then absorbed and processed out of the body by the liver. Essentially, it causes fat to be consumed and removed by the body.

This technique is effective at removing fat and reducing cellulite. It has also been used to tighten the skin and improve body physique. Since it was created, it has been used by dermatologists and med spas across the world.

Is it Safe?

Ultrasound cavitation is extremely safe. During treatment, the process is comfortable and completely painless. Once the fat is released, some patients have noticed that they feel warmer or unwell temporarily. This is due to the release of thermal energy and detoxification of the body. Even though cavitation is extremely effective, women should still eat a high fiber, healthy diet. Drinking water will help the liver to metabolize fat and ensure that the procedure is successful. In addition, diet and exercise will help ensure that the procedure is not needed again.

Although side effects are rare, the most common symptoms are swelling or redness in the treated area. These side effects normally go away within a couple of days or weeks. Some people may notice more urine after treatment due to the release of toxins and waste by the body. In addition, individuals may have drier skin following their treatment. This may last for a few days and can be reduced using lotions that contain aloe vera. In general, most people can resume their normal life as soon as the treatment is complete. If there are symptoms, individuals should always discuss their concerns with a doctor or qualified medical professional.

Is Ultrasound Cavitation Effective?

Studies have shown that ultrasound cavitation is extremely effective at reducing cellulite. It can be used to remove fat and provide body shaping. Once fat is removed, the skin starts to snap back to its original form. Ultrasound has been used to treat tissue injuries like tendonitis, muscle sprains and bursitis. It has also been shown to help with conditions like pain, motion problems, spasms and inflammation.

How Does it Work?

Using an ultrasound machine, the clinician will make strokes and circles on the part of the body affected by cellulite. Often,  The machine uses high frequency sound waves to target the cellulite and vibrate tissues. This penetrates deeply within the tissues and draws blood toward the area. Immediately, the tissue begins to recover and release fat. In general, this process takes only a few minutes and is completely painless.

For a complementary procedure, women can always try out slim plastering. This alternative treatment is used to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce cellulite or stretch marks. At the office, the affected area is covered in plaster. Afterward, they can go about their daily routine for four hours before they return to the office to have the plaster removed. The plaster bandages use horse chestnut, gotu kola extract, algae, pineapple enzymes and a range of ingredients to promote the removal of cellulite.

Contraindications and Frequency

Typically, individuals need six to ten treatments to achieve the best results. Between each ultrasound cavitation treatment, the individual must wait three days so that the body has time to eliminate fats. The number of sessions required depends on the treatment area and the individual’s body type. Normally, a clinician and patient will have a consultation first to determine how many treatments are necessary.

Before using any treatment, individuals have to provide their doctor or clinician with a full medical history. Pregnant women and epileptics should avoid using ultrasound cavitation. Cavitation should NEVER COME IN CONTACT WITH METAL In addition, people with an infection, cancer, pacemaker or diabetes should not use this treatment. Individuals on blood thinning medicine or who have a metal implant in the treatment area should not use ultrasound cavitation.

LED vs Radio Frequency Which One Should I Use?

LED vs Radio Frequency Which One Should I Use?

With our obsession to remain youthful we are always looking for the most effective way to keep looking our best.  Lifestyle has as much to do with a youthful appearance as do the treatments that you receive.  It is important to remember that a common sense healthy diet, 64 Oz of water or more a day, combined with a proper exercise regiment to elevate your heart rate will go a long way in keeping Father Time at bay.

There are so so many choices to consider and questions to ask when deciding on anti-aging treatments.

  1. Is there downtime?
  2. How much time is needed for the treatments?
  3. How much does it cost?
  4. What is the end result?
  5. What is the maintenance?

We will compare two of the most common methods for anti-aging, their benefits, their advantages, and disadvantages ... LED Light Therapy and Radio Frequency Skin Tightening.

 LED Light Therapy Advantages

LED is a relaxing, completely painless, inexpensive treatment that can easily be done at home. LED can be combined with virtually any other treatment. Using the light receptors in skin cells, the light waves target specific depths of skin so that different conditions are addressed. Photo rejuvenation sessions stimulate new collagen formation by delivering pulses of light to the skin.  After a series of these sessions, the new collagen produces healthier, younger-looking skin. In addition to improving coarse, rough skin with enlarged pores, photo rejuvenation sessions reduce the signs of aging and sun damage, including fine wrinkles, freckles, and irregular, pigmentation. Some people with Rosacea are even able to decrease or discontinue their medications.

Photo Rejuvenation is the ultimate low downtime procedure, which is ideal for active people who do not want to take time off from their business and social functions. While laser resurfacing, chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, and facelift are all effective for aging skin, photo rejuvenation sessions are superior to these procedures in reducing redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries, as well as diminishing brown age spots.

For fine lines, age spots, broken capillaries to enlarged pores, coarse skin, mottled pigmentation, it reduces the signs of aging while restoring a highly satisfactory youthful smoothness.

  1. Is there downtime? NO
  2. How much time is needed for the treatments? 20 Minutes Per Week or 5 Minutes Per Day
  3. How much does it cost? Salon Facials estimate $100-150
  4. What is the end result? Healthy, Clear, and More Even and More Toned Skin
  5. What is the maintenance? Weekly or Daily; the More you Keep up, the Better the Result

Radio Frequency (RF) Advantages

Radio Frequency is a more powerful anti-aging tool for dramatic results. While LED is a luxurious and easy treatment, RF technology is for more clinical results for those who need a little more help with firmness and tightening. Because of the targeted treatment, you can actually sculpt the face. The lifting and tightening effects are noticeable from the very first treatment and improve with every treatment.

Radio Frequency technology delivers focused energy achieving better and faster results. It provides subtle and immediate results achieved over several sessions. This gradual approach allows you to return quickly to work or your daily activities without a recovery period.  It also eliminates any discomfort and the likelihood of side effects.

  1. Is there downtime? NO
  2. How much time is needed for the treatments? 30-40 Minutes
  3. How much does it cost? Salon Facials estimate Est. $150
  4. What is the end result? Firmer, Tighter, More Youthful Skin Tone
  5. What is the maintenance? Every Two Weeks for  10 Sessions, then Once a Month

Here is a list of both LED and RF benefits:

  1. Promotes Collagen Production
  2. Increases Oxygenation and Moisture
  3. Increases Skin Firmness From Within
  4. Accelerates Skin Repair
  5. No downtime- No Pain
  6. Improvement is noticeable after the First Session
  7. Smoother skin and More Even Tone
  8. Fewer Treatment Sessions
  9. Applicable for All Skin Types
  10. Accelerates Skin Repair

Ultimately your needs will determine your choice.  If you are under 40 and desire clearer skin with more even coloring, and just want to prevent aging effects, LED light therapy is an easy choice. If you are over 40 and need more help with the texture and laxicity, and have more sagging, then Radio Frequency is  a more powerful option.

If you like taking the time to get facials, and you regularly pamper yourself, then you can indulge in the LED. However, if you are looking for less fuss, then RF facials on a monthly maintenance schedule won't disappoint.

Basically, what I have told my customers over the years is that, if you are trying to maintain your youthful appearance, an LED machine like our 7 in 1 Photon Microcurrent Machine is perfect for keeping your skin beautiful and youthful with no downtime. If you are mature and need to turn back time, then RF facial machines are the better direction. And if you need a lot of help, then HIFU is where you want to look next!

How does ultrasonic work? Benefits and results to expect.

How does ultrasonic work? Benefits and results to expect.

During an ultrasonic facial, high level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration. Ultrasound may be used on most parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, breasts, stomach, waist, hips, buttocks, and legs and can now be used in the comfort of your own home.

How Does It Work?

The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used by salon professionals to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, fade dark eye circles, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage. The process is safe, painless and gentle and is can even be used by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.

The sound waves produced by the ultrasound facial machine resonate well above our hearing level and move too quickly for our nerve endings to register. The intensive rejuvenating cyclic sound waves penetrate below the skin reaching the dermis and will not cause the user any discomfort or unusual side effects.

Some ultrasonic devices and machines offer the convenience of different treatment modes. Generally, the lower the ultrasonic frequency rate setting, the deeper the sound waves will penetrate below the skin. Thus, the 1MHz mode is designed for general body treatment where tissues and muscles are thicker. The 3MHz mode is designed for general facial treatment where tissues and muscles are much thinner. The 5Mhz mode is appropriate for treatment around the most delicate area - the eyes.

Treatment Frequency Treatment Area
1 MHz Body Area
3 MHz Facial Area (Cheeks, Forehead, Chin)
5 MHz Delicate Eye Area

In order to optimize the penetration of the cyclical sound waves produced by the ultrasonic facial massager, a conductive gel must be used. Besides encouraging improved conductivity, the gel also penetrates deep into the skin.

When ultrasound enters the body it reacts in various ways. It is absorbed by muscle, tendons and bone. Harder surfaces like bone will absorb and reflect ultrasound energy. All of these play a role in the eventual total temperature rise in the surrounding tissue. This in turn dramatically increases needed oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste products. This antibacterial cleansing action also helps prevent the onset of acne and blemishes and the skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer - even after just one application!

Once only available exclusively through salons, spas and medical offices, ultrasonic facial technology is now within the reach of the home consumer in the form of hand-held ultrasonic skin care devices. When used according to the recommended treatment guidelines, these high-tech tools are equally effective in addressing a range of skin care concerns from acne to wrinkles and may be used to replace or supplement spa visits, or in conjunction with post-procedure regimens to enhance and prolong results.

What Type of Conductive Gel Should Be Used During Treatment?

It is critical that a water soluble gel be used during treatment because it has been found to be the best conductor of ultrasonic sound waves. Plain water, oil or any oil-based creams or lotions do not contain conductive ionic properties and are not compatible during ultrasonic skin care treatment. Damage may occur to your ultrasonic treatment head if applied to the skin without using the correct conductive medium, or any conductive medium at all.

What Are The Benefits Of Ultrasonic Facial Treatment?

Ultrasonic facials offer a safe and gentle alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive skin rejuvenation treatments.

Results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just occur over night. Although Ultrasonic treatment has been shown to produce an immediate and temporary firming effect, continued daily application will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results.

  • Stimulates Blood Circulation
  • Aids in Lymphatic Drainage

Are Ultrasonic Facials Considered Safe?

The ultrasonic facial is considered a safe, easy and gentle skin rejuvenation treatment however the following precautions should always be taken during treatment:

  • Do not use internally and avoid using near center of the throat to avoid thyroid stimulation
  • Do not use on open sores, wounds or infected areas
  • Never use internally (i.e. in mouth, nose, etc.)
  • Do not use if pregnant, have a pacemaker, heart disease history or other medical condition.

What is HIFU?

What is HIFU?

HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also called Ultherapy, is the latest alternative to a traditional facelift.  At one time, the only way to reach the deeper facial structures and connective tissue was with a surgical knife.  Today, ultrasonic sound waves can take us there!  HIFU can reach and affect that deep foundation layer of the dermis with no downtime or post procedural recovery. Although ultrasound is considered harmless, when the energy is focused on a specific area, it will pass through the epidermis without damaging it, but it will destroy the underlying tissue.

Doesn't sound so harmless, but, that's actually a good thing when you are dealing with the deeper muscle tissue in the face.  Why? Because when the tissue gets stimulated, or broken down, it triggers a regenerative response.  In other words, it creates an ideal condition for the collagen to grow.  When collagen builds, the skin gets firmer, tighter, and lifted over time.  The results show naturally and gradually and continue to improve up to six months after treatment.  The final result takes several months to see.

This non-invasive procedure has been proven to slow down the signs of aging and even put it in reverse.  The FDA has cleared the HIFU procedure as safe and effective in clinical studies of over 200,000 patients worldwide.  The  areas that have successfully been improved with the use of HIFU include under eyes, jaw line, cheeks, chin, neck, forehead, decollete and mouth. It has even been shown to improve the skin condition of those with acne.

The HIFU treatment has some level of discomfort, but depending on the technician, a pain reliever can be used.  It has been described as having a hot sensation by some.  Others report an achy feeling over the bony areas.  It is a few seconds long during the application of ultrasonic energy.  It is a good sign that the collagen process has started.  Usually, the patient returns to their normal activities right away.  Some cases may have redness or swelling, but it is mild and temporary.  A session could last between 30 and 90 minutes.  The treatment generally lasts a year, depending on the patient.  Age and the condition of the skin is a factor for the treatment strategy; patients older than 50 benefit from an additional treatment 4-6 months after the initial session.  Most times, it only requires a touch up visit after a year.  The ideal ages for HIFU is late 30s to early 50s.  This is when skin still has some elasticity and is mildly loose.

‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’ has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for face and neck.   It has been said to reduce the appearance of aging by 4-8 years in just one treatment.  This safe non-invasive procedure stimulates the natural collagen production with out the side effects and recovery time of traditional surgery.  The results are noticeable and immediate.  What's better, they also continue to gradually improve as time goes by.  Facial contouring and fine wrinkles are targeted while skin is lifted and rejuvenated.

Prices on HIFU treatments can vary greatly.  Generally, you can expect to pay about $2,000 for a full face and neck ... and the neck and jowl line can be about $1,100, while just a brow lift can be about $500 - $600.

At skincaremachines.net, we currently offer two HIFU machines.  They can be found here: HIFU Machine - 1, and here:  HIFU Machine - 2

Can you do a micro-current facial at home?

Can you do a micro-current facial at home?

The fastest growing facial treatment in spas and salons today is the anti-aging micro-current facial.  This therapy was once developed to treat patients with Bell’s Palsy and stroke victims in the late 1980’s.  It’s effectiveness on muscle stimulation has now, naturally found its place in the beauty industry.  Sagging muscles can be lifted and put back in place.  This type of facial gives coveted results and it does so without the pain of surgery or the downtime of recovery.  And the results begin immediately!  Don't be surprised if you get puzzled looks from friends followed by, "You look different, what are you doing?"  or if they are honest, they'll admit, "You look great!"

In a micro-current facial, the facial muscles undergo training in the same way as, let's say abs respond to a hundred crunches or the buttocks to a thousand squats.  Now, just like our bodies don’t stay in shape after one good workout, neither do these facial muscles.  Anyone who knows about fitness knows the muscles should be worked routinely for the best results. You must maintain those facial muscles even after you’ve done a course of regular treatments.  But, just like donning six pack abs, or a tight end,  it is soooooooo worth it!  So, how many treatments do you need?  Well, its not really as simple as a number.  Its a lifestyle just like going to the gym.  As long as you are mixing it into your beauty regimen, you will be happy.  Muscles eventually relax again if neglected.  So, what's the answer?  You have two choices.  You could schedule regular micro-current facials on a weekly or monthly basis at your local beauty salon, or you can get a home unit and give  yourself micro-current facials.  After all, who knows your face better than you?

If you choose to do a micro-current facial yourself, you will need to understand how to manipulate the muscles in your face.   You have the ability to lengthen, shorten, or lift the muscles.  The micro-current wands are available in several configurations.  They vary in style and size for every area.  The most common probe is a set of cigar shaped figures that you place on the face or body to complete a circuit of electricity that stimulates the muscles.  You hold them along a single muscle  for six seconds at a time.  If you slowly bring the wands together, the muscle shortens and plumps.  Alternatively, you can elongate round cheek muscles by spreading the probes away from each other.  Need a brow lift?  Straddle the smaller forked probe over the eyebrow in the position you would like it shaped.  Hold it for 6 seconds.  Repeat twice.

The benefit of doing it at home is certainly financially advantageous.  A set of 6 treatments can cost $600.00 or more in a spa or salon.  A home unit can pay for itself in less than one course of treatments.  Another advantage for the home user is that it saves time.  You can fit in a few treatments throughout the week in the specific areas you need attention.  There is no travel time and no need to coordinate an appointment.  It can all be done at your convenience in the privacy of your bedroom.  Your new routine need only include about 20 minutes, twice a week.   The result is a firmer, lifted, more youthful you.

At skincaremachines.net, we offer many different options to do your own micro-current facials.  Or, if you own a spa or salon, we have options for you too!

Frown Lines Talk

Frown Lines Talk

What do frown lines say about you?  Do you look worried?  Angry?  Stressed out?  The most noticeable lines on the face when talking with someone are the lines between the brows.  Over time they can deepen, and even when we're relaxed, we can look worried, stressed, and even angry.  It's a sure sign that youth has slipped away.  That's not what we want.  We want to appear relaxed, happy, and confident.  And younger.  This means furrowed brows or frown lines are the most important wrinkles to deal with.  Frown lines are even more annoying even above crow's feet and parenthesis lines.  We'll deal with those later!   How do you take care of a furrowed brow? 

One way to deal with them is with Botox injections which could yield unwanted side effects in the way of a frozen expression.  No one wants to have a blank expression or a shiny flat forehead, which is equally noticeable.  A non-chemical option is the ever-growing popular microcurrent treatment.

Microcurrent treats frown lines with an electrical current at a very low concentration to stimulate collagen and strengthen the skin's elasticity.  It repairs and conditions the skin back to health which helps it to foster better absorption of skin care products.   Another benefit is the increase in amino acid production and Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP.  This biochemical fuel delivers energy to each of your cells and rejuvenates them.

Microcurrent can smooth frown lines or furrowed brows by using the current to lengthen muscles that have contracted too much due to years of holding facial expressions.    Microcurrent treatments lengthen and shorten your muscles, which lifts and firms the skin.  Regular facial massage also helps to circulate the muscles and soften the face.

Microcurrent treatment gives immediate results.  However, they are temporary; they will need to be maintained.  The most effective routine is a regular routine.  Applying short treatments performed on a daily basis is more effective than having longer treatments done occasionally.  Frown lines can be addressed in only one minute a day using a microcurrent home unit such as the ones found at SkinCareMachines.net.

We at SkinCareMachine.net offer comprehensive customer service to get you started at home or in your salon.  You receive free training with your purchase.  Call us today!

LED Light Therapy for Glowing Skin

LED Light Therapy for Glowing Skin

Do I Need LED Light Therapy?

The fastest and easiest skin rejuvenation treatment is LED light therapy.  This facial treatment addresses skin issues from acne, scars, age spots, sun damage, wrinkles, and more.  Every age, men and women alike, can benefit from LED.

As skin ages and experiences the damaging effects of weather, oxidation, and free radicals, healthy skin cells are no longer able to renew themselves as they once did.  Eventually, the result is sagging loose skin. There are two proteins that support the structure of skin: collagen and elastin. By increasing the natural production of these proteins, you can essentially reverse some of the effects of the damage.  Wrinkles and fine lines are diminished; the skin is lifted and toned.  You can improve your overall complexion by encouraging the cells to work for you as they once did when you were a kid!

LED facials are not just for those seeking to look younger.  They are also excellent  for the treatment of acne afflicted skin types as well.  LED photon therapy kills bacteria in the skin, resulting in a clear and clean complexion.  This facial is literally for EVERYBODY!


Does LED Light Therapy Really Work?

The LED (light emitting diodes) communicate with your light reacting skin cells.  The cells use the light as an energy source with which they repair damaged cells, boost collagen production, accelerate tissue repair, kill bacteria, limit melanin production, soothe Rosacea, etc.   In as little as one session, there is a positive noticeable difference on your skin from LED light therapy.  However, the effects are maximized when part of a regular routine.  

It also gives the complexion an illuminating and brightening effect.  Each wavelength reaches a depth and causes a different reaction.  A few examples of these reactions are plumped skin, destroyed bacteria that causes acne, receded broken capillaries, or disrupted melanin production.

As treatments are continued, the results are long-lasting.  Treatments can be combined with ultrasonic exfoliation, microcurrent, microneedling, and radio-frequency facials.  Effects are maximized when used in combination of these other treatments.

What Can I Expect from an LED Light Treatment?

Because this treatment is non invasive, LEd facials are completely pain free.  The experience is pleasant and calming.  You can just close your eyes, although many salons offer eye protection goggles.  There is no UV light, so you will not risk getting a tan from LED.  As treatments are continued, the results are long-lasting. Using light in your facial effectively calms irritated skin, so you'll look better immediately.

Prior to applying the lights, the skin should be cleaned and the pores should be opened with either steam or a hot hammer.  The appropriate lights for your individual skin issues are then applied for 20 minutes.  Light therapy will leave you feeling calm and refreshed.  Treatments can be combined with ultrasonic exfoliation, microcurrent, microneedling, and radio-frequency facials for maximum results.  In most spas, you can expect LED facials to run between $125-$195.  Results are immediate but in three days, they are significant.  If you have an event, plan a few days out.

Can I Do Light Therapy at Home?

There are several options of light therapy devices that can be used at home.  Be careful to choose lights that have less than 700nm (nanometers) for the most effective treatment.  Some devices are handheld, while others fit over the face for an easier application.   Our favorite is this one.  It combines LED with microcurrent for firmer tighter skin.   If you want to cover more surface area, this one forms a tent over the face area but can also be set over other body parts easily.  There are large full body lamps as well as entire LED beds available as well.

How Often Can I Use LED Light Therapy?

Although LED will yield immediate results for glowing skin, LED should be used consistently to keep skin healthy and radiant.  Results continue to improve throughout the week.  If you have a home LED machine at home, you can use it a few minutes daily or use it longer (20minutes) only once per week.

What is Pressotherapy?

What is Pressotherapy?


Pressotherapy is a special type of massage that is done by machine instead of manually, that is also known as lymphatic drainage therapy or lymphatic drainage massage. This massage therapy stimulates your lymphatic system by compressing and decompressing specific parts of your body, forcing the system to get rid of toxins and excess liquid retention. This results in the body reducing fat more easily and decreasing inflammation. The other benefits of pressotherapy are improved blood circulation and reduction of cellulite. The procedure is relaxing and convenient. There is no downtime or discomfort. So how does it work?


Similar to how the blood is carried through the human body through the circulatory system, the lymph (white blood cells, fats, debris, bacteria, and toxins) is carried through the lymphatic system. When the lymphatic system is healthy and working efficiently, the whole body functions better. On the other hand, when it isn't functioning properly, it can affect our blood supply, and cause swelling, pain, constipation, and even cellulite.

The use of pressotherapy stimulates the lymphatic system with compression and decompression while improving blood circulation. The health benefits of therapeutic massage are known throughout the health and wellness industry and have been at the forefront of most spas. Manual manipulation of muscles by a massage therapist stimulates the lymphatic system. An alternative is a pressotherapy device or a compression suit that can be used in spas or health clinics or even in the comfort and convenience of one's own home.

Pressotherapy equipment or a compression suit consists of sleeves to be placed over the various limbs and core. They are connected to the central unit which controls the pressure by pumping air into the suit. Some devices have multiple programs and varying pressure control.

In addition to the health benefits of removing toxins, reducing liquid, increasing circulation, and relaxation and recovery, there are beauty benefits as well. The side effects of compression suits are weight loss and diminished cellulite.

Lymphatic drainage pressotherapy is useful for those suffering from cellulite, varicose veins, rheumatism, blood circulation problems, and increased liquid retention, as well as exhausted muscles and tired legs. It is a great way to increase your blood circulation, get rid of body and muscle pain, and detoxify your body by getting rid of the toxins and unnecessary liquid that your body holds.

When the additional technology of infrared lights is added to such a suit, the benefits include anti-aging, a boosted immune system, a decrease in pain, and lowered blood pressure. The most desired effect is weight loss, specifically fat loss. A compression suit with infrared light is also known as a sauna suit. The effects of wearing a sauna suit are similar to exercising. The body temperature is increased, sweating is produced, and according to the Mayo Clinic, many chronic health conditions are positively affected. Diabetes, heart conditions, Alzheimer's, arthritis, and blood pressure are a few that have shown good results.

You can get a compression suit here to use at home.
