FACTS about our non-surgical facelift, The Solitone.
Posted on 05 January 2016
Have a couple questions about the most advanced non surgical face lifting treatment available, the Soli-Tone 2500?
Yea, we figured you may, and as always, we’re here to help.
What is the treatment and how does the treatment work?
The Soli-Tone 2500 is registered with the FDA and uses three technologies: pure spectrum Photo-Energy (LED), Impulse micro currents and ultrasound. LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy was initially developed by NASA and has been used to treat serious burns, crush injuries, diabetic ulcers, and patients with complications of cancer chemotherapy and radiation treatment. LED’s work by increasing the energy produced in the skins cells and accelerating tissue growth and regeneration. When it comes to ageing of the skin LED treatment reverses signs of photo ageing, increases collagen production, regenerates tissues, reduces redness, breaks down pigmentation, heals acne and when combined with Impulse Micro-Currents lifts sagging tissue (think the dreaded waddle!).
How does the Soli-Tone 2500 compare to other LED treatments on the market?
LED’s use specific wavelengths of Red, Blue, Green and Yellow light energy to stimulate the changes in your skin. Up to now, treatments (think Omnilux & MAX7) targeted individual problems (ie. They use one spectrum of light or “scan” the light over the skin). Research has shown that the best results are seen when all 4 light wavelengths are used in conjunction and the skin is exposed for a constant and set time, depending on the condition being treated. Imagine if you tried to get a tan in a Solarium with just a few globes “scanning” back and forth across you - you would need 1000 times as many sessions to get your tan. The same applies when it comes to LED’s that merely scan back and forth across the face and so the whole face is not constantly exposed to the LED and so light absorption is reduced. The Soli-Tone 2500 is the only technology that uses high strength LED’s (stronger than any other on the market), all wavelengths in a single treatment and allows for the light to be present for long enough AS WELL as using Micro-Currents to lift tissues. So it is the only technology that uses both light energy (LED’s) and Micro-Currents to treat the epidermis, dermis and muscular regions of your skin.
What exactly is the Lumilift® procedure?
The LumiLift® procedure is a revolutionary way of rejuvenating the skin and lifting sagging muscles. It is performed with two special electrodes that feature an advanced application of Micro-current and Light energy. During the Lumilift treatment, a pulsating light is directed at the skins surface. Light passes through the layers of the skin and penetrates into the dermis. This powerful light stimulates the fibroblast cell to produce more collagen. The increased collagen smoothes and softens the appearance of wrinkles, reduces the size of pores, and improves the skin texture. At the same time, the electrodes emit Micro-currents to tone and lift sagging muscles. At the end of the treatment, an antioxidant product is infused into your skin using a special electrode to smooth away facial creases.
What are Micro-currents?
Micro-currents are non-invasive. They stimulate and resemble the biological currents that your body produces to tighten muscles. Extensive clinical research has shown that these currents are able to tone and lift the muscles. Combining Light Therapy with Microcurrents erases years from the appearance of your skin, without the use of drastic, costly and painful surgical procedures. Lumilift® will restore a natural and youthful appearance to your skin.
How many treatments do I need?
Age, lifestyle, and skin condition will influence the number of treatments needed. While clients usually report a noticeable improvement after just one treatment, a series is required to get the full benefits. Generally, depending on your skin and the severity of the conditions being treated, 6-10 treatments achieve optimal and long-lasting results.
What results can I expect?
The improvement can and will be quite dramatic. Most clients see immediate improvement. With a series of treatments, years are easily removed from the appearance of your skin. You will see younger looking skin, reduction in the amount of, and the depth of, fine lines and wrinkles, increased skin elasticity, and redefined and firmer facial contour. Pore size is reduced along with textural irregularities, acne, and pigmented blemishes. Have a look at the before and after photos on the front page. This is achieved without any thermal damage to the skin (as with Lasers and IPL) and no down-time. Soli-Tone treatments are unique since they regenerate not only the face, but also the neck, décolletage and hands.
