Top Fall Skincare Finds: Mira-Skin Ultrasound and Sublime Beauty Naturals Zen Power Serum

NEW skin care essentials for fall: Mira-Skin Ultrasound Kit & Sublime Beauty Naturals Zen Power Serum

This fall season is all about non-invasive yet effective cosmetic procedures and natural, organic skin care products. I'm very particular about what I put on my skin partly due to my pharmaceutical background but also because of having been spoiled with facials at some of the area's best spas. European facials rely on a skilled technician who uses unscented, natural beauty products. Now we have access to high tech devices like microdermabrasion wands, lasers, LED Light Therapy and ultrasound treatments. Combined, they create a synergy that give results very near what more invasive cosmetic procedures will offer. So here is an example of two skin care instruments and products I've used together to get some very impressive results:

Mira-Skin Ultrasound Starter Kit

Mira-Skin Ultrasound
This ultrasonic wand is made in Germany and was sent to me by Techmira. It arrived as a starter kit with everything you see here: Mira-Skin Ultrasound Wand, Ultrasound Gel and Hyaluronic Acid. All three work together as a triple play to increase absorption of skin care products and boost moisture. Remember when I reviewed the Jenu Ultrasonic Wand this past spring? You can read it HERE. The Mira-Skin Ultrasound is more powerful than the Jenu and is made for use on your neck and whole face, not just around the eyes and lips.

Hyaluronic Serum, Ultrasonic Wand and Conductive Gel
Mira-Skin Ultrasound Kit Contents:
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of young skin which helps maintain moisture and plumpness. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases. This is where deeper lines and loss of volume begin to show. Before starting my ultrasound treatment, I applied the Mira-Skin Hyaluronic Serum which is a fragrance free gel. One treatment and you will see a difference in the level of moisture in your skin.

Ultrasound Conductive Gel is applied to the skin next. This allows the wand to effectively send the Hyaluronic Serum deep down into the skin's lower layers. Odorless and clear, it is similar to the gels used in Ultrasound Imagery.

Mira-Skin Ultrasonic Wand and Conductive Gel
The Mira-Skin Ultrasonic Wand is extremely high tech. You activate it by placing your finger on the base and watch the red light go green. Place a drop of water on the wand and you'll see the ultrasonic vibrations in action. It is very relaxing to use as it warms up slightly as it glides over the skin. This is what spa estheticians use in their more expensive facials, but you can do this at home 2-3 times a week for superior results. The wand comes with a USB cable to recharge it. I've used the Mira-Skin Wand several times and have not needed to recharge it yet. Each treatment cycle takes between 5-10 minutes and should be done no more than 3 times per week.

Here are the details and specs from the Mira-Skin website:

The Mira-Skin Starter Kit is the ultimate solution to recapture your youth. The ultrasound boosts the anti-aging performance of your skincare.
• While skin creams can only penetrate the top layers of skin, ultrasound makes it possible to deliver essential nutrients deeper into your skin to smooth away unwanted imperfections and accelerate skin repair. The gentle micro-massage of ultrasound gently cleans and exfoliates your skin and promotes your skins metabolism and lymphatic drainage as well as the production of collagen and elastin.
• The Mira-Skin concept is open for using your favourite anti-aging products after the ultrasound treatment. It will increase the absorption and effectiveness of your favorite skin care products.
• We recommend to use the Mira-Skin Hyaluronic Serum (15ml/0.5 fl. oz included in the Starter Kit) before your ultrasound treatment for even better results. It penetrates deep into the epidermal layers and binds moisture internally to plump wrinkles from the inside out. It helps your skin retain moisture and keeps your skin soft and supple. Wrinkles disappear and your skin gets a fresh, radiant complexion!

Sublime Beauty Naturals Zen Power Serum

Sublime Beauty Naturals Zen Power Serum
The Mira-Skin Ultrasound treatment allows for the deeper absorption of skin care products both during the application and for up to 30 minutes after. So to take advantage of this window of opportunity, I add the NEW Zen Power Serum by Sublime Beauty Naturals. This is a multi-product serum, made from organic botanicals utilizing the most potent forms of: Vitamin C, E, CoQ10 plus peptides and yes, hyaluronic acid. 

How I Bring the Spa Home: Pure Essential Oil Blends & Zen Power Serum 
As the Ultrasonic treatment allow products to reach deeper into the skin, I would recommend that anything you apply be pure, organic and natural. So after my use of the Mira-Skin, I apply the Zen Power Serum and to accentuate the spa experience, add a few drops of the Zen De-Stress Pure Essential Oil Blend. This blend has a Jojoba oil base with essential oils of: Neroli (orange blossom), clary sage and lavender.

I finish off my facial with a few drops of this essential oil blend on my forehead. Ah, bliss! I find that if you use a very light oil like this during the drier, cooler days of autumn, your skin will retain moisture much better.

So these are the new movers and shakers this fall in skin care!  My skin after using this new system of ultrasound combined with hyaluronic serums is super moist and supple. My makeup goes on much easier with no dry patches or flaking even though I use Retin-A for acne control. This fall, be Red Carpet Ready by using a skin care protocol that actually works after only one treatment. The Mira-Skin Starter Set retails for $349.00. A European Facial at one of the top NYC spas starts at about $149.00 for an hour. You will see much more noted results if you do these facials at least once a week. Also, be sure to use top quality organic skin care products on you skin. I'm loving the NEW Sublime Beauty Naturals collection, especially the Zen Power Serums and Zen Pure Essential Oil Blends.
