LED LIGHT THERAPY


 

The application of LED light as a treatment therapy is termed ‘Phototherapy’ derived from the measurement of light energy in units of photons.

Light energy is in every nerve, cell, gland and muscle of the body and each emits its own unique frequency vibration.

When the body becomes out of balance (due to age, health, environment, lifestyle or other external factors) the frequency vibration within the cells is affected and this disruption can lead to signs of ageing, skin conditions, illness and disease.

Each colour wavelength of light has a specific and unique frequency vibration. Specific light wavelengths have a bio stimulatory action on the cells and so can be used to effectively normalize cellular imbalances and treat certain skin conditions.

There are now numerous scientific studies on the effect of phototherapy in the healing of acne and other skin conditions.

Red LED Light is an effective treatment for aging skin as well as particular conditions such as Rosacea and other skin conditions. Benefits include: Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of age spots and sun damage, increase in collagen, reduction of overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries.

Blue LED Light helps Acne prone skin by targeting the bacteria which cause acne therefore decreasing acne drastically with absolutely no downtime.

 
 

OXYGEN TREATMENT


 

Oxygen is a natural healing element and when infused into the skin encourages healthy cell regeneration and visibly reduces lines and wrinkles.  In this treatment a vitamin enriched anti-ageing serum is applied to the skin and transferred to the basel layers of the epidermis through the infusion of oxygen, helping to protect your skin from environmental pollutants and leaving the texture of the skin feeling smoother as the moisturisers are absorbed quicker.

 

 
 

CACI


 

CACI (computer aided cosmetology instrument) Renowned as the electronic face lift.  A relaxing and painless non-surgical face lift treatment that tones muscles, smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles and prevents sagging skin. 

The CACI system incorporates 4 different technologies within one state of the art treatment, MicrocurrentUltrasonic PeelHydratone and LED Light Therapy photo stimulation.

Offering a number of programs for softening lines and wrinkles, facial toning, hand rejuvenation and improving acne blemishes.

The system utilises a special ultrasonic handset that vibrates at 27,000 vibrations per second on the skin surface to exfoliate and deep cleanse the epidermis.

Ultra’s unique wrinkle comb applicator is used to effectively and painlessly plump out and soften deep lines and wrinkles thereby providing a needle free alternative to dermal fillers.

Improve your complexion

CACI treatments combat the visible signs of ageing as well as improving overall complexion to restore the beauty of your natural skin. At Lisa Franklin, we can carry out a non surgical facelift by tailoring the different technologies to your current skin condition and focusing on any specific concerns.

A commonly chosen non invasive facelift package available at Lisa Franklin Privé is our CACI Lift, non surgical facelift. This treatment uses microcurrent technology, pinching and stimulating the facial muscles which firm up over time. The re-educating of the muscles with a high frequency current will give a more youthful appearance.

CACI and Lisa Franklin

Aside the use of Microcurrent in our CACI Lift treatment we use other procedures that the CACI can carry out, including Ultrasonic Peeling, Hydratone and LED light treatment with our bespoke Repair Recover Renew treatments.

If you think you would benefit from a non surgical face lift, we recommend that you come for a consultation which will allow our team of skin specialists to establish the best course of treatment for you.

If you would like to arrange a non surgical facelift or enquire about our other treatments, please contact us on 0207 7520217.

 
 

MICROCURRENT


 

Microcurrent in aesthetics is commonly described as “facial toning or non surgical face lifting” due to the dramatic lifting effect that microcurrent has on facial muscles and facial contours.

True microcurrent uses a current with an intensity of less than one millionth of an amp (< 1mA) and because of it’s low intensity it does not cause a physical or visual contraction of the muscle,instead, microcurrent stimulation works by a process called muscle re-education.

Combining ultra low frequencies with a modified waveform enables the microcurrent to recharge the electrical potential of the muscle by stimulating the spindle cell fibers that run the length of the muscle and attach to the golgi tendon organ in the belly of the muscle.

During treatment all 32 facial muscles are physically manipulated using soft cotton tipped wands (probes) or other attachments that transmit the microcurrent impulses.

Working a muscle will have a lengthening/relaxing effect that is necessary on muscles that have become contracted over years of facial expression (eg frown lines). Working a muscle from the origin and insertion point inward will have a shortening effect that is necessary for the majority of the muscles that have become elongated over time due to age and gravity.

Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative and typically a course of 12 treatments will be required for optimum results.

 
 

ULTRASONIC PEEL


 

Ultrasonic peeling uses a hand piece containing ceramic/quartz heads that when excited by an electrical current emit piezoelectric vibrations that cause the hand piece to vibrate at 27,000 vibrations per second on the skin surface.

These rapid vibrations push skin impurities to the skin surface and cause any dead skin cells to become dislodged . The vibrating hand piece is then used to deep cleanse and gently exfoliate the epidermis.

The rapid expansions and contractions of the vibrating hand piece also destroy skin bacteria by causing the single cell wall of the bacteria cells to implode.

The sonic vibrations can also be set to a specific frequency to help the absorption of skin care formulations.

Ultrasonic skin peeling provides a far gentler and less aggressive alternative to traditional  microdermabrasion methods of skin exfoliation.

 
 

HYDRATONE


 

Hydratone combines active microcurrent rollers with a unique, electrically conductive silicon gel mask that has been infused with powerful hydrating properties. The rollers gently massage the face causing the mask to become electrically charged so that the whole face is bathed with rejuvenating energy.

The energy delivered by the rollers recharges and replenishes the bio-electrical energy within the facial muscles, restoring tone and firmness.

The energy generated also drives the hydrating actives contained within the gel mask deep into the skin tissue. The gel mask has a dramatic softening action helping to plump out and smooth deep lines and wrinkles.

 
 

GALVANIC


 

Using galvanic current on the positive polarity is referred to as iontophoresis. During an iontophoresis treatment, a positively-charged (acid pH) serum, gel or complex is first applied to the skin. The positively-charged current is then delivered via the active ingredients deep into the skin via positively-charged ions or molecules.

This simple electrorepulsion is ideal for treating aging skin and hyperpigmentation, as it carries active age-fighting and pigment-controlling ingredients deep into the stratum germinativum where they can impact cells.

Galvanic on the positive polarity also has a calming and vasoconstrictive effect on the skin, helping to reduce sensitivity and redness, so don’t deny your Rosacea and sensitive-skin clients the benefits of this valuable technology.

Galvanic on the positive polarity has the following skin effects: 

  • Acid reaction to balance skin pH
  • Tightens and firms tissues
  • Constricts the follicles
  • Decreases blood flow and sensitivity
  • Reduces edema
  • Attracts positive ions
