Please introduce Divine Pro, including its core technology, main efficacy, and applicable customers.
Divine Pro is a product of Lumenis, known as the high-end salon/spa-use-only version of the popular home-use beauty device TriPollar. This non-invasive device simultaneously works on facial skin and muscles for a rejuvenating effect. It features two core patented technologies — TriPollar® multipolar high-density radio frequency and DMA dynamic muscle activation technology to tighten the muscles, and improve skin elasticity and activity in a high level of comfort.
TriPollar® radiofrequency stimulates collagen contraction to firm and lift the skin and improve contours. DMA is an innovative muscle activation method that stimulates the contraction of facial muscles and SMAS through rhythmic electrical signals emitted by a sliding handpiece to contour from within and improve the appearance of a sagging, puffy and aging face. The two technologies work together on the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous fat layer and muscle layer to realize full-layer treatment, three-dimensional anti-aging and multi-dimensional facial rejuvenation.
Lumenis believes in the power of scientific research and is dedicated to combining clinically proven, safe and effective technology with the body’s natural mechanisms to improve beauty from within. Divine Pro has been CE certified. Divine Pro is fit for customers of all ages, especially those with sagging skin, unclear contour lines, sunken face, sagging apple muscles, and double chin.
Please share more details about the joint treatment of Divine Pro and Swissline. How is it implemented, and what products of Swissline are used?
Swissline, a professional skincare brand from Switzerland, is committed to breaking the boundaries between medical aesthetics and traditional skincare by innovatively applying “cellular” therapies and quasi-medical technologies to the field of beauty and skincare. The treatment jointly developed by Lumenis and Swissline aims to meet the market demand for a comfortable and visibly effective aesthetic experience.
Swissline’s products are used along with Divine Pro to dynamically reshape the facial contours. The core part is in the middle of the session, where Swissline’s newly launched Pure Collagen Face & Neck Film is applied on the face for collagen replenishment and activation. After the film is fully absorbed, the Divine Pro is performed to activate and tighten the deep muscles and accelerate a deeper penetration of the collagen film.
The botanic essence and collagen power released by Swissline’s product work together with Divine Pro to target the key anti-aging needs of the skin from three dimensions: 1. external collagen replenishment; 2. internal stimulation of collagen formation; 3. multi-level muscle activation. Different from the “cold” medical aesthetic treatment, the integration of the pampering spa experience gives customers a higher level of satisfaction.
Please tell us more about Pure Collagen Face & Neck Film. What is the advantage of Swissline’s products over that of others in this joint program?
Swissline Pure Collagen Face & Neck Film is made from 92% pure collagen, 87% of which features the same molecular structure as the skin’s own collagen. The patented MatriCol™ technology provides a timely and non-invasive collagen filling effects.
The collagen film replenishes collagen of different molecular weights directly from outside during the treatment and promotes the regeneration of the skin’s own collagen, effectively smoothing fine lines. In addition, Swissline Pure Collagen Face & Neck Film is fit for all skin types, including extremely sensitive skin.
Does this joint treatment include personalized approaches?
Yes. Adjustments can be made during the Divine Pro operation and a range of Swissline’s products are available to meet the actual facial conditions of the individuals. For example, Swissline’s FORCE VITALE rang is effective for extremely dry or oily skin while CELL SHOCK AGE INTELLIGENCE™ is a rescue for fragile and inflamed skin. There are also more gentle options for skin after cosmetic procedures.
Where can consumers experience the treatment? Is there any follow-up advice for at-home skincare after the treatment?
The treatment is currently available at Swissline Glamscience Center in Hong Kong Plaza, Shanghai. ISwissline’s extensive product portfolio and specialized skincare solutions, as well as beauty and health maintenance programs provide consumers with more targeted solutions to continue and consolidate the results at home.
