Cosmetic electrotherapy has been a key feature utilised by the beauty industry since the 1970s, with traditional modalities consisting of galvanic, high frequency, faradic and microcurrent. As technology has progressed over the decades, skincare professionals now have access to many modalities to supercharge treatments, including ultrasound, ultrasonic, radiofrequency, LED and electroporation, to name but a few. While each device offers unique effects, without the right supporting products the ultimate results are less likely to be achieved.
When using electrotherapy modalities within facial treatments, many beauty therapists assume they must be combined with scientific, technologically advanced skincare formulations to achieve a noticeable improvement to the skin, but Eve Taylor London, the naturally beautiful aromatherapy brand, has created a range that allows you to combine nature and science together, offering treatments that give noticeable improvements while maintaining an aromatic and sensorial experience.
Exfoliation and deep cleansing
The range from Eve Taylor can be fully integrated with skin preparation when using ultrasonic technology such as a skin scrubber. Deeply purifying formulations packed with tea tree oil and lemongrass essential oils within a foaming base can be propelled into the skin using sound waves, expelling grime and pollutants from the follicles as the blade edge passes, leaving the skin fresh and squeaky clean.
For those who wish to power up their exfoliation, an ultrasonic blade edge can be used, combined with professional resurfacing products formulated with fruit-based hydroxy acids or proteolytic enzymes. The active ingredients in the products will digest corneocytes and loosen the bonds that give cells cohesion to each other. The combined use of ultrasonic technology emits soundwaves to vibrate the cells, further loosening them and gently abrading with the blade, giving an excellent resurfacing action for impressive results.
Oily and congested skins can also benefit from the combination of botanicals and electrical current with decongesting treatments. When using galvanic current on the negative polarity to create an alkaline effect, use with a desincrustation solution rich in aloe vera, chamomile and coconutbased skin softeners to further assist with the saponification of impacted sebum in the follicles, allowing for easier comedone extractions and ultimately clearer skin.
If the client’s skin is especially congested, desincrustation products can be customised with Lemon Hydrolat for enhanced degreasing actions. This aromatic water, among others in the Eve Taylor range, is ideal for boosting the effects of professional products to take results to the next level.
With so many electrical modalities on the market for product penetration, it can be challenging to determine which is best for your business and whether the chosen device can be used with a product range.
Eve Taylor London has an extensive offering of electrical-compatible serums, gels and masques, which can all be combined with machines to drive them deep into the skin and give clients the results they crave. Whether using galvanic iontophoresis, ultrasound, ultrasonic, electroporation or even LED therapy, these innovative formulations will impress.
The range of professional response serums are packed with botanicals and natural ingredients, yet, boast a scientific edge to achieve skin enhancements. The selection is highly concentrated and positively charged for supreme ionisation benefits.
Formulations include the pomegranate and yeast-rich Oxygen Response Serum, which acts as a true skin tonic for those who need a re-energising skin boost and pick me up; the mulberry and vitamin C-rich Pigment Response Serum, which promotes a monotone complexion and helps to banish uneven skin tone; Sebum Response Serum, abundant in tea tree oil and niacinamide to regulate overactive sebaceous glands and refine pore size; and the best-selling Timeline Response Serum, with ginseng and purslane to inhibit and minimise the appearance of expression ageing and facial lines.
For therapists with a client base concerned with ageing, the range of electrical compatible serums extends into the Age Resist range. With the skinquenching Hydrating Serum abundant in hyaluronic acid to plump skin and create a dewy complexion; Brightening Serum to promote radiance while helping to build collagen and defend against free radical damage with its triple vitamin C formulation; and Firming Serum, a skin-strengthening elixir to firm and combat free radicals with co-enzyme Q10 and peptides working in harmony to protect collagen and elastin fibres from degradation while giving an immediate firming sensation. The highly effective serums can used in combination with one of Eve Taylor London’s many conductive mediums to ensure the smooth flow of current while assisting with skin improvement.
The botanical rich Anti-oxidant Masque is a firm favourite for ageing clients, while the aloe vera-rich Electro Gel is suitable for all skin types and conditions, and intensively hydrates the skin as it conducts. To go one step further and really customise for the client’s specific needs, adding a few drops of Hydrolat to the chosen conductive medium not only makes the treatment aromatic but allows you to treat conditions simultaneously, with a serum targeting the primary skin concern and the enhanced conductive gel treating secondary concerns.
Hydrolat is created as part of the extraction process of essential oils, using steam, and retains many therapeutic properties of the oil while maintaining its water consistency, allowing it to be effectively infused and ionised into the skin. With eight Hydrolats in the range, you can select from Rose for all-round skin hydration, Lemon for skin degreasing, through to Orange for intensive skin brightening.
The brand boasts its own electrical tool, the Ultrasonic Micro-therapy Device. Exclusively available to Eve Taylor therapists, this handheld tool offers multiple settings to exfoliate, clarify and ionise, and supercharges formulations within the range to give clients impressive results.
Lifting and firming
Faradic, microcurrent and radiofrequency are also catered for within the Eve Taylor London range, with the formulations complementing skin-lifting treatments for visible effects. When treating specific lines and wrinkles, Timeline Response Serum targets the causes of expression ageing, working hand in hand with microcurrents of the various modalities. Firming Serum can be applied simultaneously or as a standalone treatment serum to target loose skin tissues, or combined with lifting treatments for an all-round improvement.
For enhanced skin firming, customise Electro Gel with Peppermint Hydrolat. Its ultra-cooling actions help constrict the skin and further firm the epidermal layers. The cooling actions are especially beneficial when used with radiofrequency and help to counterbalance any irritating effects from the increased temperature.
