Sooner or later, it happens to everyone.
Those fine lines start creeping up on your face.
But, according to Solitone, there's a new option for people who want an easy way to fight the wrinkles. It targets the lines with light.
A woman named Cindi agreed to try the new treatment, called Soli-Tone, because character lines are starting to show on her face.
"I don't like it, because you start seeing the lines and things that haven't been there before, and they're starting to pop up now, so I wanted to try this to see if it can do improvement," she said.
Soli-Tone is a machine that uses light and microcurrent on the face. It claims to boost collagen production under the skin to plump out wrinkles, and it also claims to clear up acne.
There is no recovery time involved with this treatment. You can get up to three treatments per week.
"This is something that's good for the skin," said Kim Wright, supervisor of the skin care department at Nemacolin. "The light is very safe, very non-evasive, helps heal the skin.
"Michelle Wright followed Cindi to her first of eight recommended treatments."Does it help the sun damage to the skin?
"Michelle Wright asked."Yes, it does," Kim Wright said.
There is a series of lights, depending on the needs of the client.Cindi's treatment started with the blue light. It seems almost relaxing.
But the next phase wakes you up with pulsing yellow light. It claims to even out pigmentation.
Next is a red light for anti-aging, followed by a soothing, green light.
The treatment ends with paddles going over the skin.
"This will give the muscles a little exercise, a little tonal value," Kim Wright said.
The entire session took about an hour. Most of it was relaxing, except the pulsing light, Cindi said.
"The worst part was the strobe," she said. "I didn't like that. It was real intense. But other than that, everything else was really nice.
"Afterwards, Cindi's skin looked and felt smoother.
"It was great. Really nice. Makes your skin feel really good," Cindi said.
Cindi's treatment costs $150. Not everyone can have it -- including, for example, people with epilepsy and pregnant women.
Potential customers should also note that come of the other wrinkle treatments, such as lasers, require a couple of days of down time.Original Source: WTAE-TV4; http://www.inboxrobot.com/news.php?fid=131049365
