The Iderm® Treatment Process
Dermaculture has utilized Ionization techniques for the treatment of skin for over 70 years. In fact, the Iderm® Treatment Process (a proprietary treatment technology owned by Dermaculture) introduced the concept of Ionization to the entire skin care industry. While many companies have tried to make copycat ionization machines, none have successfully integrated the properties of Ionization with the cosmetic application of vitamin rich, skin care solutions as has Dermaculture.
Dermaculture has demonstrated to thousands and thousands of people that Iderm® treatments provide lasting and effective results for problem skin. However, the concept of Ionization is still largely misunderstood by many people.
The following is intended to define the Iderm® Treatment Process and explain the beneficial effects of introducing electricity into the skin.
What is an Iderm® Treatment?
The Iderm® treatment is the most comprehensive approach to treating the skin. This treatment uses a direct galvanic current which effectively introduces water soluble solutions into the skin by a process called iontophoresis. Skin naturally rejects whatever we put on it, so the only way we can truly affect the lower layers of the skin, is to draw vitamin rich solutions into the dermal tissue by means of electricity.
The Iderm® Treatment utilizes two ionization processes: Cataphoresis (positive ion) and Anaphoresis (negative ion). A positive treatment causes an acidic reaction and helps to firm the skin and promote new cell growth. A negative treatment creates an alkaline reaction and is used to soften the skin and stimulate circulation. Negative treatments are commonly used to loosen impacted cystic acne for deep cleansing of the skin.
Your trained professional will determine which treatment is best for your skin.
Is the Iderm® Treatment Safe?
The Iderm® treatment process uses a very low intensity current, a milliamper (1/1000th of an ampere) which is both safe and effective for application to the skin.
What Results Can I Expect?
You will notice how exceptionally clean and rejuvenated your skin looks and feels after the first treatment. A combination of treatments and proper use of skin care products will give your skin the appearance of a smoother, more youthful tone and texture.
How Often Can I Have a Treatment?
The treatment is so safe that you could have it done everyday if you'd like! Your Iderm® skin-care professional, however, will determine the frequency of treatments necessary for your skin type and desired results. Most customers prefer to have at least one treatment per month. The Iderm® Treatment Process has also proven extremely effective in the medical arena, where it is recommended for pre and post laser and surgical procedures to boost the healing process.
