The device offers multiple functions allowing a versatile selection of treatments to be performed across a wide selection of skin types and conditions; Exfoliate; provides removal of dead skin cells and enhances cleansing actions for a smooth, soft, refined complexion. Decongest; deeply cleanses, breaks down sebum, loosens comedones ready for extractions and refreshes the skin. Ionise; propels action ingredients into deeper skin layers for increased product effectiveness and visible positive results. Collectively, the versatile functions of this device, widens your treatment selection and incentivises clients to return for increased treatment results.
The Eve Taylor® Ultrasonic Micro-therapy Device uses ultrasonic technology to emit 25,000Hz vibrations and longitudinal sound waves from the edge of the stainless-steel blade. When the blade is held at a 45-degree angle and passed over moistened/wet skin, the concentrated ultrasonic vibration penetrates into the epidermis. This oscillates corneocyte cells in the stratum corneum layer. The vibration dislodges the cells and lifts them within the moisture on the skin surface, creating a visible moisture mist. The skin also benefits from the ultrasonic sound waves, propelling surface moisture from the tip of the blade rapidly into the follicles and back out again. This quickly expels pollutants, dirt and grime within a single pass, purifying the skin and removing superficial dirt and sebum for a targeted cleansing action.
The Eve Taylor® Ultrasonic Micro-therapy Device offers a high-performance decongesting function to deeply cleanse the follicles of excess oil, loosen impaction plugs and soften the skin in preparation of comedone extractions. The sound waves emitted by the flat edge of the blade passing over the skin vibrate and oscillate the skin tissues underneath. This loosens solidified impaction plugs in the follicles and assists with the release of sebum, by aiding with saponification.
The Eve Taylor® Ultrasonic Micro-therapy Device offers a highly effective method of penetrating and ionising products into the skin using supreme ultrasound technology to create a form of ultrasound and sonophoresis. Ultrasound uses sound waves in excess of 20,000Hz to create physiological effects within the skin tissues. Similar to ripples on water, the waves created increase the penetration of topically applied ingredients into the epidermal layers to achieve intensive results for the skin. One of the effects ultrasound creates is cavitation – the formation and collapse of gas bubbles. The intensity of cavitation causes small holes in the corneocytes, in-turn enlarging intercellular spaces for topically applied formulations to be deeply absorbed. Heat is also created and increases the fluidity and temporary disorder of Stratum Corneum lipids; this creates direct pathways for the diffusivity of molecules through the skin barrier and thus assisting with the ionisation of skin care products within the professional facial treatment.
The Eve Taylor® Ultrasonic Micro-therapy Device is designed to be used on a wide variety of skin types and conditions to gain visible results and skin improvements. For sensitive or rosacea type skins we recommend using the device with caution and advise to only use primarily with ‘Ionise +’ setting.
‘Exfoliate’ and ‘Decongest -’ settings may offer too much stimulation for this kind of skin. As the device uses electrical currents it is normal for the skin to experience stimulation, which may be visible in the form of mild erythema. In the unlikely occurrence that the skin experiences irritation or discomfort, we recommend ceasing the treatment and calming the skin with the application of Ultra Soothing Cleanser applied as a mini masque for 5-10 minutes. For client comfort, ensure you have explained the effects of the Eve Taylor® Ultrasonic Micro-therapy Device and the high pitched sound it emits, especially when using ‘Exfoliate’ mode. For any clients with hearing aids/devices, we recommend that they set them to ‘off’ when using this device to avoid interference or audio discomfort.
