Sapphire Photo Abrasion

1. What Is Microdermabrasion and Cold Laser?

The Sapphire Skincare system offers a state-of-the-art, multi-faceted skin rejuvenation process that guarantees improvement in the tone, texture, tautness and overall health of the skin.
Sapphire Photo Abrasion is the ultimate combination therapy for the skin. It combines the latest in cold laser rejuvenation therapies, lymphatic drainage, and microcurrent with a highly beneficial vitamin exfoliation for dramatic results that improve the skin’s health and appearance from the very first treatment.

Cold laser can help with:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Reduction in rosacea breakouts
  • Reduction in acne scares and breakouts

“Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Cold Laser, is a revolutionary breakthrough in anti-aging and skin health maintenance. By oxygenating tissues cells, LLLT dramatically increases DNA/RNA synthesis for faster cellular renewal, while simultaneously stimulating collagen production. This is how LLLT rejuvenates and enhances your skin’s natural ability to stay firm. LLLT also detoxifies and heals your skin, leaving it supple, radiant and youthful in appearance.”

The microcurrent facial delivers safe, painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to firm and tone the facial muscles on both an immediate and long-term basis. The technology simultaneously repairs collagen in the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis (the top layer of skin). As we age, our electrical impulses slow down causing aging and sagging facial skin. Microcurrent works in harmony with the natural bio-electrical currents naturally found in our bodies to help speed up the cellular regenerative process resulting in firmer, healthier, more youthful looking skin.

2. How Does the Cold Laser Facial Work?

Cold lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin’s layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin) at all wavelengths in the visible range. However, light waves in the near infrared ranges penetrate the deepest of all light waves in the visible spectrum. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effects throughout the entire body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell, increasing cell turnover, and improving collagen and elasticity.

Treatment begins with a Sapphire Abrasion.

Named for the sapphire granules that cover its unique tip, this crystal and suction-free abrasion system uses vibration to painlessly ablate the outermost layers of the skin. The tip is slowly passed across the skin’s surface, revealing the healthier layers beneath. Because the system is suction-free and non-thermal, it can be used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions.

Lymphatic Drainage follows the Sapphire Abrasion.

The function of the lymphatic system is to clear toxins, metals, inorganic substances and other waste from our tissues and cells. The lymphatic system has no pump and is dependent upon muscle contractions, stimulations, and deep breathing to drain properly.

This unique lymphatic drainage process speeds up the removal of waste while it detoxifies and regenerates new tissue and cells. Using the reverse side of the Vitasonix 300’s tip, and changing from vibration to a pendulum motion, a massage of the lymph system is provided, following the facial paths of the lymphatic system.

Concentrated Red Monochromatic Light therapy now follows.

The 630 nm wavelength of the red light stimulates the production of ATP, which is the major carrier of energy to all cells, expediting the replacement of older or damaged cells. In addition, it stimulates fibroblasts in the connective tissue that produces collagen, and promotes elasticity and firmness.

Microcurrent is combined with the concentrated Red LLLT to stimulate muscle toning .

The final step of the Sapphire 3 treatment is Blue LLLT therapy.

3. Are Cold Laser Facial Treatments Safe?

VitaSonix is non-thermal and patients are reporting no discomfort or pain associated with the treatments.

Cosmetic microcurrent treatment is considered a safe and gentle therapeutic approach to skin rejuvenation however the following precautions should always be taken:

Do not use if you are pregnant
Do not use if you have a cardiac pacemaker or history of heart disease
Do not use if you have been diagnosed with cancer or tumors
Do not use if you have implanted defibrillators/stimulators or other devices

4. What Are the Benefits of Sapphire Photo Abrasion?


Blue LLLT light is the latest, most sought-after solution for reducing bacteria that causes acne. To varying degrees, everyone has bacterial deposits on their skin. The blue LLLT therapy component delivers blue light at 450nm at high frequency, destroying the bacteria known to cause acne and other related skin conditions by producing an extra molecule of O2, creating a medium in which acne bacteria is unable to survive.

Sapphire Photo Abrasion is an effective treatment for:

Fine lines & wrinkles
Enlarged/clogged pores
Sagging Skin
Dry skin
Acne & acne scarring

Treatments are progressive. Increased correction will be observed following each treatment. Some results, like smoother skin texture, are obvious from the very first treatment.

Sapphire Photo Abrasion is itself a stand-alone anti-aging program, but is also a complement to other skin rejuvenation procedures. It may even increase the longevity and results of today’s most popular laser and light procedures.

A full Sapphire Photo abrasion treatment takes 30-45 minutes.
