A type of Ultrasound, Sonophoresis is a technology that aides the absorption of treatments into the skin. In fact, the technology can increase the permeability of skin by up to 800%.

Of all of the methods used in the delivery of active ingredients in to the skin, Sonophoresis has much to offer to the contemporary skin treatment therapist. The technology of using sound or “sonic” waves as a form of treatment has been around for a number of years, however this has been largely in the area of therapeutic treatment of deeper tissues by Physiotherapists using ultrasound.

The use of Sonophoresis in skin treatment therapy is to provide enhanced permeability of the skin. This “permeabilisation” of the skin allows a far higher absorption of the active ingredients the therapist is attempting to infuse. The result will be both a more economical use of the therapeutic agents applied, and a greater response to the agent due to better penetration.


This type of technology has been around since the 1970's, and has undergone significant amounts of testing over that time. This has shown it to be a safe technology. All modern devices use microprocessor control to limit power output, timing, and set the specific frequencies used, so when used with the correct technique of continual sonicator head movement, there is no side-effect damage to the epidermis.


We offer a highly effective treatment that infuses Vitamins A & C into the skin, dramatically reducing fine lines and wrinkles. We typically recommend that you have 6 treatments, one treatment per week. This should then be followed by maintenance treatments every 4-6 weeks, promoting collagen and ensuring you retain your healthy glow.

Electrolysis - Glenys Steed Beauty Therapy

The effect of heating the lye speeds up the chemical reaction taking place in the follicle making it a more destructive and efficient way of rendering the follicle inactive and weakening it's ability to reproduce hairgrowth. The function of the diathermy current is to produce thermal heat to warm the lye that is produced within the follicle by galvanic current.
