Iontophoresis – C

Biogenesis now offers Iontophoresis-C in Malaysia. Iontophoresis is an effective and painless method of delivering the Vitamin C by using bipolar electric fields to propel molecules across intact skin and into underlying tissue. Iontophoresis in Malaysia is used as a means of delivering the vitamin C across the skin for the management of a variety of medical conditions.

L- Ascorbic acid polypeptide complex is a water stable, soluble form of Vitamin C, which is able to penetrate the outer layers of the skin. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, has the ability to neutralize or counteract damage to cells caused by free radicals which are believed to be a main cause of aging. Topical vitamin C has shown to protect the skin from UV damage caused by prolonged sun exposure by reducing the amount of free radical formation and/or sunburn cells.

Biogenesis Clinic’s Iontophoresis-C in Malaysia works by replenishing your skin with Vitamin C. Exposure to UV light has also shown to decrease the naturally occurring vitamin C levels in the skin, thus topical application of vitamin C restores these photoprotectant levels. Other studies also suggest that vitamin C may play a part in the collagen biosynthetic pathway by activating collagen metabolism and dermal synthesis of elastic fibres. Iontophoresis in Malaysia can be particularly effective as Malaysians are exposed to a hot and sunny weather all year long.

Studies have shown the benefits of using topical Vitamin C preparations:

  • Reduces melanin to a colourless substance, inhibiting the formation of freckles and skin discoloration. It is especially effective in treating malasma and hyperpigmentation that does not respond to IPL and laser treatments.
  • Protective substances, which are involved in the capturing, or neutralizing of free radicals formed upon exposure to U.V. radiation.
  • Wound healing
  • Pronounced toning and firming effect on the skin, making it suitable as an ingredient in cosmetics intended for use in the vicinity of the eyes (reduction of puffiness, etc.) as well as skin care products for aging and mature skin.
