Iontophoresis Treatment

Iontophoresis facial treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses a mild electrical current to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin.

This method enhances the absorption of topical skincare products, making treatments more effective. It is suitable for various skin concerns, including acne, pigmentation, and signs of ageing.

What is I-COOL PLUS?

I-COOL PLUS is an iontophoresis device designed to enhance the efficacy of topical treatments. It uses controlled, mild electrical currents to enhance the penetration of active ingredients into the skin. This technology ensures that the carefully selected skincare products used during the treatment are delivered directly to the target areas, maximising their benefits and promoting healthier, more radiant skin.

Treatment Procedure

The iontophoresis treatment follows a systematic procedure designed to maximise the benefits of the treatment while ensuring safety and comfort. Here is an overview of the typical steps involved in the procedure:

Initial Consultation

Before the treatment begins, a thorough consultation with the doctor is conducted. During this session, the doctor assesses the individual’s skin type, identifies specific skin concerns, and discusses the desired outcomes. This helps in customising the treatment to meet the individual’s unique needs.

Skin Preparation

The skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, and oils. This step ensures that the skin is free of impurities that could hinder the absorption of the active ingredients. An exfoliation step may also be included to remove dead skin cells and further prepare the skin.

Application of Active Ingredients

A topical formulation containing active ingredients tailored to the individual’s skin concerns is applied to the treatment area. These ingredients can include vitamins, antioxidants, peptides, anti-acne agents, or skin-lightening compounds, depending on the specific goals of the treatment.

Using I-COOL PLUS Device

The I-COOL PLUS device is then used to deliver a gentle electrical current, which helps the active ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin. The procedure is comfortable and typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

Expected Results

After the iontophoresis treatment, patients can expect to see an immediate improvement in skin texture and hydration. Over time, continued treatments can lead to significant improvements in specific skin concerns, such as reduced acne, lighter pigmentation, and improved skin quality.

Downtime Expectations For Iontophoresis Treatment

Iontophoresis treatment typically has minimal to no downtime. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure. Some people might experience slight redness or tingling, which usually subsides within a few hours.

Post-Treatment Care

After the iontophoresis treatment, a soothing and hydrating mask may be applied to the skin to lock in moisture and further enhance the benefits of the treatment. Sunscreen is also applied to protect the skin from UV damage.

Aftercare Instructions

The doctor provides detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. This may include recommendations for skincare products to use at home, guidelines on sun protection, and advice on avoiding certain activities or products that could irritate the skin.

Follow-Up Sessions

Depending on the person’s skin concerns and goals, multiple treatment sessions may be recommended. The doctor will discuss the appropriate treatment plan, including the frequency and number of sessions needed to achieve the desired results.
