The Ionzyme DF machine created by plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes provides facial treatments which are at the very forefront of scientific skin care. This is one of the most effective treatments in the world today for enhancing the penetration of high doses of vitamins into the skin.
Happi Magazine reports the DF Facial is quickly becoming a favorite among Hollywood’s elite, including Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo, among others.
It is suitable for even the most delicate of complexions, as a highly effective skin nurturing facial, or as a course of intensive treatments for concerns such as mature, sun-damaged, lined, photo-aged, pigmented scarred skin along with stretch marks. The treatments help to stimulate thickening of the skin, improve collagen and elastin levels, reduce hyper-pigmentation and increase hydration.
Specific Environ products used in these treatments contain the optimum strengths of vitamin A and C plus additional growth factors. To enhance the penetration of these products through the skin providing better penetration of the active vitamins and essential factors into the skin. This technique is crucial because skin has a natural, waterproof barrier that hinders the penetrations of vitamins. The Ionzyme DF Machine manages to overcome this resistance with two tried and tested methods:
Iontophoresis- involves the use of an electrical current to facilitate greater penetration of vitamins into the skin.
Sonophoresis- involves the use of sound waves to transport vitamin molecules through the skin.
Iontophoresis is used for relatively large surface areas such as the face and neck, whereas Sonophoresis is used on limited areas such as the upper lip and the concentration of character lines around the eyes, on scar tissue and on pigmentation marks. Both methods can be combined, where necessary, for intensive treatments. It is also useful for reducing pore size, evening skin tone, tightening, lifting and brightening your skin, while providing an overall healthier appearance.
