What is IONTOPHORESIS?

Partially derived from the Greek word phoresis for movement and the electrical term ion, to define the use of electrical movements, Iontophoresis is an electric-based effective delivery of ingredients (such as vitamins, antioxidants or peptides) that permeates the skin beyond the superficial level.   

Records of iontophoresis can be found all the way back to the 1700's but in recent times, it is a safe medical procedure that is originally used to treat excessive sweating as well as sports injuries by delivering anti-inflammatory medications directly into the skin. 

Acclaro uses Iontophoresis for specific facial treatments to allow active ingredients such as Vitamin C and growth factors to penetrate better during treatments, providing faster and more effective results.  

 

Why CHOOSE Iontophoresis?

It provides a more targeted and beneficial delivery system that when used after laser procedures or chemical peels, can improve the healing process through the more concentrated delivery of nutrients or medical ingredients. This also leads to a decreased healing time post-surgical procedures.
