Iontophoresis (Vitamin C) Treatment 

This is the second technique involved in the Jet-Ionto therapy. Hence, it contributes to the other half of the therapy's name.

Iontophoresis is an effective and painless process to enhance the absorption of medicine into inner skin by the application of light electric current. When this treatment combined with vitamin C is used, it is very effective in expediting the absorption. This will help to lighten the skin cell. Consequently, this will also improve freckles, spots and acne.

It is well known that ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is a potent antioxidant. It inhibits melanin production and reverses the effects of photo damage like fine lines, rough and lax skin by stimulating collagen activity and eliminating free radicals formed within the skin. Iontophoresis with Vitamin C also aids the rebuilt of collagen and repairs the damaged skin from UVA light. This will make the skin fairer, smoother, firmer and pigments are lightened. The number of treatments you may require, depends on the skin condition you wish to have treated. On recommendation, 6-10 treatments on a interval of 2-4 weeks may require to deliver optimal results.

What is Jet Peel ?


It is a simple and effective superficial peel that helps rejuvenate the facial skin. It makes use of pressurized oxygen to accelerate a liquid agent (saline) to supersonic velocities, creating an exfoliative effect to the skin.

How does Jet Peel work ?


The liquid agent (saline) is compounded with different vitamins and supplements that will address the problem of the patient. The high velocity jet peels the superficial layers of the skin allowing better penetration of the compounded substances. Subsequent  reepithelialization takes place resulting in younger, healthier skin. It is often combined with vitamin C iontophoresis treatment to achieve a smooth and supple skin.

What are the advantages of the Jet Peel ?


It is painless and has no downtime. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the treatment and minimal side effects are associated with it.

Are the results immediate ?


Post-treatment, the patient will have more glowing skin.
