Wellness dictionary

Little ABC for your spa-break questions ...

In their treatment discriptions, wellness hotels often use technical terms, which are hard to understand for potential guests. We have therefore collected and defined the most relevant terms in our small wellness ABC. A tip: Our wellness dictionary also supports word requests. You don't need to know the exact wording.


Ultrasound treatment  -  Anti-Aging

Lots of different environmental influences like nicotine, stress, alcohol but also the natural aging process influence our skin appearance. Elasticity and resistance decrease as we grow older and simultaneously the process of cell replication slows down. 

During an ultrasound treatment vibrations are generated

which cause deep heat in our tissue. Those vibrations and the resulting heat exert pressure on the cells and therefore cause fluctuations. This kind of mini massage expands vessels, which stimulate the blood circulation and the metabolism and also the lymph flow is encouraged. With the help of this technique additional ingredients like hyaluronan can be injected in the deeper skin layers and function in an even more efficient way. The skin firmness increases and becomes more fine-pored. Besides that, wrinkles decrease. Dead skin flakes are removed just like during a soft peeling. Furthermore, the production of elastin and collagen is stimulated and the skin appearance improves.

Ultrasound treatments are available for face and body.

Possible reasons for such a treatment are:

  • Tired and stressed skin
  • Impure skin
  • Rosacea
  • first wrinkles
  • Cellulite
  • Scars
  • Lachrymal sacks
  • Dark rings under eyes
  • Muscular tensions

Dry wrinkles around the mouth and eye region can be reduced drastically with this technique, which gives a youthful glow. Even pigment spots can be reduced with the help of ultrasound.

In case of impure skin an ultrasound treatment stimulates lymph flow and causes a better removal of slag materials. The sound waves regulate the sebum reduction and the ph-value regulates itself.

Ultrasound treatments are not avisable when the patient

  • is pregnant
  • suffers from local inflammation
  • has thrombosis or
  • a malignant tumor
