Have you heard about the latest treatment to help erase wrinkles, fine lines, and the advanced signs of aging? Would you believe me if I told you that a little bit of noise could be the answer to keeping your skin looking fresh, smooth, and beautiful? Well, it can!!!
I want to share a little bit of information with you about sound therapy and sound healing – because, quite honestly, I think it’s pretty darn fascinating! Normally, we are used to applying a tangible treatment to our skin to improve it – whether it be a serum, a cleansing system, or a process like laser treatments or Hydrafacial. But what if something that can’t be seen could be the answer to some of our anti-aging prayers? Something as widely available as sound waves?
New discoveries, modalities, and treatments pop up in the health and beauty industry as quickly as the speed of light! Now, the latest buzz in skincare and whole-body healing is something that has been around for decades but we are just now seeing it as a beauty treatment – sound therapy. Although sound therapy (also known as sound healing or vibrational medicine) has been widely used as a total body healing and relaxation practice in yoga and meditation, it is really starting to develop a following outside the meditation and yogi world as it becomes more popular in traditional health and skincare. While we are used to hearing of people getting their namaste on by turning to sound for relaxation and meditation using recordings of waves lapping, waterfalls and wind chimes, sound therapy is hitting the skincare industry in just a slightly different way.
Most sound therapy uses vibrations of the human voice as well as objects that resonate pitch and frequency such as tuning forks, gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, etc. This practice is thought to go beyond just topical relaxation and stimulate healing by bathing the patient in specific frequencies of sound that activate the brain and other systems of the body that promote healing. But, the sound therapy for skincare that I’m referring to is less new-agey and more science-based anti-aging in that its focus is on using vibroacoustic technology as a tool for delivering sound that can treat and heal the skin through wavelength frequency with the help of a non-invasive tool.
Vibroacoustic technology and, what’s also called, acoustic resonance therapy is most commonly used in skincare treatments as a procedure using the 20 Hz Pro machine, which is essentially an advanced facial tuning fork that uses frequency and soundwaves as sound technology that assists in sculpting the face, neck, and body while eliminating toxins through lymphatic drainage. The 20 Hz Pro is patented Vibroacoustic Technology delivering 20 Hertz of sound (not ultrasound) distributed through one of five different probes (which resembles a scalp massaging fork). The relaxing wavelengths generated by the 20 Hz Pro can then be felt as gentle vibration throughout the treated area. With our treatment using the 20Hz Pro, you will begin to see puffiness in the face reduce and skin begin to calm and brighten in as little as ten minutes. Long-term rejuvenating effects are a reduction in inflammation, hyperpigmentation and even acne. The 20 Hz of sound creates the ultimate, relaxing treatment allowing for a safe, painless, yet effective session with absolutely no downtime!
Here at Tru Skin Rituals we have a few different treatments that apply this process of sound healing for your skin. Our treatments provide a non-invasive method of enhancing skin health while providing lift and contour of the face muscles with massage, lymphatic drainage, and fascia release. Benefits include increased circulation, decreased puffiness and inflammation, improved texture and skin tone, and, over time, skin that’s firmer and smoother, with minimized fine lines and wrinkles.
