-- Microcurrent has been the trend du jour when it comes to non-invasive skincare technology, even competing with more invasive treatments like Botox. While it's a great device for facial muscle toning and lifting, it is not always the best option when it comes to sensitive skin, or skin prone to eczema, acne, or inflammation.Enter stage right the overlooked cousin of microcurrent: ultrasonic technology.
Around since the 1940's, it's a proven technology that is commonly used by estheticians in a spa setting but underutilized at home.Microcurrent vs. Ultrasonic Skincare Technology:
Microcurrent is a sub-sensory electric current primarily used to stimulate facial muscles so that the face appears more toned. It is limited, however, to the appearance of facial contours and can cause irritation and allergic reactions to sensitive skin.
Ultrasonic, by contrast, is an extremely versatile skincare technology that can also be used to improve the appearance of facial contours through stimulation of lymphatic drainage and gentle massage of the facial muscles.Why Ultrasonic Is a Better Option For Sensitive Skin:
- Sensitive enough to be used on all skin types, even acne, rosacea, and eczema.
- extremely safe and easy to use—it's a technology that has been around since the 1940's and used for both medical and aesthetic purposes.
- Pain-free: no zapping, electrocuting, abrasive scrubbing, or tugging. In fact, ultrasonic scrubbers utilize wet exfoliation to slough away dead skin cells while hydrating even the most sensitive skin.
founder, Shannon Britt, saw the opportunity to create an at-home skincare device utilizing the benefits of ultrasonic technology particularly for those with sensitive skin.
The OLURA Eno™ Device
) is the only dual-sided patented device that uses ultrasonic technology for facial-like results at home. On one end, a gentle ultrasonic exfoliating spatula helps clear clogged pores and remove dull, dead skin; on the other, an ultrasonic infusion disk pulses 350,000 times per second to increase blood circulation, reduce inflammation, sculpt facial muscles and infuse product into skin.
It penetrates 5 millimeters deep under the skin, reaching the second layer of muscles under the facial muscles. The ability to go this deep supports collagen production in these two lower layers.
