The Pioneer of Cosmetic Ultrasound

In 1989, it was MD P. Kleanthous who discovered ultrasound for cosmetics. Again, MD P. Kleanthous was a pioneer in this field. He was the first to employ ultrasonic micro-vibrations for his anti-aging treatment to introduce as many cell supporting molecules (c.s.m.) as possible into the skin in as short a time as possible. Sound waves detox the skin, thus improving the absorption of agents. As a pleasant side effect the treatment smoothes scars, produces collagen, reduces skin impurities and improves blood circulation in the tissue. Thanks to KLEANTHOUS ultrasound has become the leading technology in cosmetic treatments. New and also revolutionary: ultrasound with spectral light and sono resonance. Carefully tuned ultrasound frequencies can boost the effectiveness of virtually any cosmetic treatment.  

What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is sound waves beyond the range of human hearing. These are very high tones in a range higher than 20,000 oscillations/second (Hz). Athletic physicians have been specifically using ultrasound for many years as a tool for introducing active ingredients contained in gels into the skin. This process is called sonophoresis. The vibration of ultrasound opens the skin up to the smallest molecules while the frequency of the ultrasound determines the depth at which the sound waves penetrate into the tissue and the extent of stimulation of the skin. For instance, ultrasound penetrates deeper into tissue if it has a frequency of 1 MHz while 3 MHz respectivly 10 MHZ only oscillates in the upper layers of the skin.

What is Light?

Light is an electromagnetic wave that is generated by constant cyclical conversion of electrical and magnetic field energy. The light spectrum is broken down into what are known as the spectral colours that appear in nature as rainbows when light is refracted through a prism (as Isaac Newton did in 1671).

The spectrum of light is a special portion on the electromagnetic spectrum that the human eye can perceive. The wavelength range of the spectrum of light ranges from approximately 380-715 nm (nanometres).

How Does Spectral Therapy Function?

There are coloured proteins (cytochromes) in the power plants of our cells (known as the mitochondria) that are crucial to the way our metabolism functions and the production of enzymes and proteins. They react to the spectral colours of the light by absorbing colours such as blue, violet or yellow. The 22 programs of the sonostar matrix transmit at least two and as many as seven different spectral colours each to the skin. 

What Effect Does Pulsed Ultrasound and Light Have on Your Skin?

  • cleansing your tissue of impurities
  • promoting circulation
  • activating the transport of lymph
  • activating fibroplasts
  • accelerating diffusion processes
  • activating collagenases
  • massaging the tissue from inside
  • guiding metabolism
  • boosting ATP activity
  • stimulating the membrane layers

Our experience with ultrasound since 1989 has shown that ultrasound gives the crucial boost to the effects of all active ingredients
