Everyone wants to achieve healthy, radiant and glowing skin! It is well-known that that the key to having a healthy and radiant complexion is to ensure that the skin is well-hydrated. Find yourself trying multiple ways to achieve hydrated skin like, ensuring you’re using the right moisturizer, drinking plenty of water, eating water-rich fruits, but still can’t achieve that glow you always wanted?
With the rapid all so ever-changing technology, Iontophoresis has been used effectively in skincare to give your skin multiple benefits like softening scars, smoothing out wrinkles and eliminating pigmentation. Today, we bring you to the facts and benefits of how this technology can change your skin.
What is Iontophoresis
Iontophoresis is an electrical treatment used to help move substances across the skin or other body surfaces. Although the effect was first noted in the eighteenth century, its use in medicine only began in earnest in the 1890s. It is also a reliable delivery technique for enhanced lightening or hydration of the skin.
Uses of Iontophoresis
Despite being a relatively new skin care technology, do you know that the use of Iontophoresis has been largely used for other physical therapies?
1. Hyperhidrosis Disorder
Iontophoresis is most commonly used to treat hyperhidrosis disorder, a condition which can cause persistent and excessive sweating. Research theories have shown that the ions of the water forms a mechanic block that stops the sweat from reaching the skin surface. This helps to obstruct the sweat glands.
2. Sports Injury
Iontophoresis helps in relieving soft-tissue injuries and heel pain by adding anti-inflammatory medicines to the water. Due to its electric current, the skin can absorb the medications even more easily.
3. Physical Therapy
Iontophoresis works by using electricity to push medication through your skin and into your injured tissues, repairing your cells.
Benefits of Iontophoresis for your skin
Apart from the multiple uses of this process, the science behind this non-invasive treatment based on the transfer of charged molecules using a low-intensity electricity current brings a more in-depth penetration to your skin. Read on to find out how can this process benefits your skin!
Due to its electrical charge, your skin will be able to absorb the nutrients more effectively hence, rejuvenating your skin with that supple glow.
2. Treatment of Acne Scarring
Because it’s rapid penetration, it achieves a greater depth and more concentrated effect for any forms of acne or scarring for your skin.
