Keeping a sterile and clean service area is crucial to the success of any skincare practice. That’s why the silicone parts and accessories used with Bio-Therapeutic equipment are infused with Silver Ion technology for its continuous antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Silver has a long history of use in human healthcare and medicine. In ancient times, metallic silver was used as a disinfectant to store and purify water. It is reported that Alexander the Great (335 BC) drank water from silver vessels and stored water in silver vessels when going on his many campaigns. Silver has been used for storing and purifying water aboard the Apollo spacecraft, the MIR space station and the NASA space shuttle.
