Previously, we have talked about some of the things you can do if your pet is suffering from skin problems, from a healthy nutrition, to supplementing their diet with digestive enzymes and probiotics. Also, if you were to visit pet grooming salons, or spa centres, you might have come across micro (or nano) bubble spas. I prefer calling it nano bubble though, sounds better doesn’t it? But they’re the same thing because as micro bubble ascends, it will become even smaller, thus becoming a ‘nano bubble’ before it collapses.
Micro bubble isn’t your normal bubble baths or Jacuzzi. The technology that creates the micro bubble produces bubbles so small, 1-50 microns to be exact, that it’s able to penetrate pores and hair follicles that’s usually 90 microns in size and remove dead skin cells, excess sebum and bacteria. Talk about deep cleansing.
An ion Anion.
First, the micro bubbles are effective in removing dirt from the pores not only because of its size. It’s also negatively charged which allows them to bond with impurities and float them out. That’s why at the end of the spa session, you’ll find a film of gunk floating at the surface of the tub. That’s the micro bubbles at work.
Secondly due to the formation of micro bubbles, enormous amounts of negative ions are also produced which also speed up the skin’s recovery process and promotes overall well-being. (No wonder I’ve been sleeping better after I started providing micro bubble spa. Imagine the amount of anions I’m getting exposed to! How nice it is to be an unintended beneficiary!)
But that’s not all
Another obvious benefit is that when you have a bubble so small, it dissolves and delivers oxygen more effectively into the skin, making it healthier.
There are also claims that when the micro bubbles burst, they produces ultrasonic waves and high temperature that sterilizes harmful micro organisms. But I’m unable to get more information on this fact so I shan’t comment more.
Luckily it’s simple to identify if your pet is benefiting from micro bubbles. Because micro bubbles are small tiny, the bubbles would suspend in the water and the smallest bubbles take up to 2 minutes to rise up to the surface. As a result, once the water is filled with these tiny bubbles, it turns milky white within seconds and would turn back to its transparent state only minutes after, all without the use of any chemicals.
How effective is it in treating skin problems then?
If the equipment has been sourced from a reputable company, it should bear accreditation from independent companies attesting its efficacy, be it the size of the bubbles, concentration of anions produced or sterilization effectiveness.
Of course, there’re plenty of testimonials online, but after trying it for myself, very obvious improvements can really be seen after just 1 treatment. To be honest, I was quite impressed with the results.
As for our micro bubble generator, it has been clinically proven to improve skin conditions (DermaPro Skin & Research Centre, Inc – Seoul, Korea) and further attested by the Korea Atopy Association.
How do we make it even better than it already is?
Recognizing that most pets with skin problems don’t just have itchy skin, but rather accompanied by flaky, sometimes crusty, or oily skin, we have added natural ingredients to boost the machine’s cleaning power to remove impurities, excess buildup of sebum and keratin to allow the skin to heal naturally.
Apart from removing what we don’t want, we add in minerals which are difficult to get through food but effectively absorbed through the skin to help reduce inflammation, eliminate toxins, balance nerve functions and regulate enzymes in the body, as well as a myriad of trace minerals to improve your pet’s overall well being.
Try it at least once.
Now, I want you to try it for yourself. If you feel that it’s a worthwhile long term investment (though I can’t guarantee how long the machine would last) for the whole family, especially if your family has issues with troubled skin, a set from Korea costs SGD$3,499. Another condition is that you’d need a bathtub for this.
Otherwise for most families, their pets are usually the ones having skin problems and it might be more economical to bring your pet in for the micro bubble treatment.
