Micro-Current Facial Lift

Micro-Current Lifting is a natural, holistic treatment that re-energizes cells and tightens facial muscles by increasing muscle protein. It uses an alternating electrical current that works beneath the sensory nerves. Micro-Current tones, lifts, and re-educates the muscles instantly for a revitalized appearance. It has a cumulative effect when performed regularly — collagen and elastin production increases by 57%!

Micro-Current is also particularly effective in treating acne as it destroys the bacteria, while encouraging the healing process without harming healthy skin. This treatment will also soften scar tissue.

The effects last for 72 hours, but the more treatments the longer the effects last. 

I recommend a series of treatments for those who are serious about maintaining the amazing, uplifted results. When these powerful muscle lifting sessions are done 2 times per week for a period of 3-6 weeks, the lifting results are cumulative. The uplifted position of the muscles will stay in it’s re-educated position. One treatment per month after will support these revitalized results.

This treatment consists of cleansing, exfoliation, followed by oxygen infusion of Vitamins A, E, C, D3, Amino Acids, Minerals, and Peptide Nutrients. Then the Micro-Current Lifting treatment, followed by moisturizer.

Micro-Current Info

The microcurrent facial is a therapeutic treatment that delivers safe, painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to firm and tone the facial muscles on both an immediate and long-term basis. The technology simultaneously repairs collagen in the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis (the top layer of skin). As we age, our electrical impulses slow down causing aging and sagging facial skin. Microcurrent technology works in harmony with the natural bio-electrical currents naturally found in our bodies to help speed up the cellular regenerative process resulting in firmer, healthier, more youthful looking skin.

Micro-Current facials are used to help re-educate the underlying muscles, giving better tone to the face. The result is a firmer facial tone, diminished lines and overall improvement in texture. 

 

A Brief History Of Micro-Current Therapy

In 1980, Thomas W. Wing. D.C., N.D., LAc., a fifth generation Chinese Doctor is credited with introducing a microcurrent device which was found to be beneficial in the treatment of muscles. Originally approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator, it also found new life in the Cosmetology industry for cellular rejuvenation, facial toning and wrinkle reduction.

Microcurrent treatment has been proven successful in treating a variety of medical conditions including Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is facial paralysis and usually effects one side of the face only. The cause is unknown, but inflammation of one of the facial nerves results in muscle paralysis to one side of the face. This usually recovers over a period of months, but on occasions can be permanent. Electrical currents have been incorporated into facial machines for many years. The research and development conducted to assist the “baby boomers” in maintaining a youthful appearance has promoted their evolution to the highly efficient apparatuses we have at our disposal today. Understandably, there is a great deal of interest around the muscle enhancement abilities of microcurrent.

How Does The Micro-Current Facial Work?

The microcurrent facial involves the application of low-level, waveform-shaped electrical impulses through dual tipped probes in combination with a water-based conductive gel. When applied to the skin, the gentle electrical current rehabilitates the underlying muscles and improves circulation, texture, tone, and fine lines. Regular use of microcurrent will continue to provide muscle strength and restore freshness to the appearance. The technology works internally on the muscle fiber and tissue for visible, external results – it’s like taking your face to the gym! Microcurrent used for the purpose of skin rejuvenation differs from Electro-Muscle Stimulation (E.M.S.) which is a medical procedure utilizing a very strong current to force repeated muscular contraction and expansion.

The skin on the face is attached to the facial muscles. When the muscles become slack, the skin goes with them! When tension and worry cause the muscles to contract continuously, wrinkles and deep lines form. Micro-Current Lifting reverses and corrects habitual muscle patterns and accelerates the repair of atrophy in the muscles.

This advanced treatment increases the Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) muscle cells, which boosts muscle energy by up to 500% – similar to the levels we have at a much younger age. The mitochondria in each cell produces ATP, our vital cell energy, and ATP produces muscle protein.

What Are The Benefits Of A Micro-Current Facial?

Microcurrent facials deliver a variety of benefits to patients who wish to maintain a more youthful looking appearance and is an extremely safe and gentle non-invasive alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive treatments. The results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just “happen” over night. Although microcurrent facials are know known to produce an immediate and temporary rejuvenating effect, continued daily application will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results!
