Micro-current offers an alternative to surgery. They have become one of the most sought-after treatments for sagging skin or a dull complexion, and may be especially effective for getting rid of superficial lines and wrinkles. If you are experiencing signs of premature aging, you can effectively get rid of wrinkles, dark patches and other skin problems with the electrical stimulation technology.
Micro-current therapy uses pulsating electrical currents that are extremely low-voltage (millionths of an amp) in order to relieve pain and stimulate healing. It works by delivering impulses of mild electrical currents deep into the skin’s surface. This triggers the healing response because the skin cells sense that the tissues have been injured and the body begins to produce more and more cells in order to heal this ‘injury.’ This then boosts collagen production deep within the skin’s surface and encourages the skin cells to heal and repair themselves naturally as they reproduce to heal the injured site.
Clinical studies show that micro-current face lift procedures trigger the production of amino acids, the body’s natural building blocks which are involved with accelerating cell production and repair. This means that cells can be restored and the body can start producing healthier skin cells in a very short period of time. Many medical studies since the 1980s have focused on the bio-electrical aspect of body cells and the use of electrical currents to stimulate healing reactions. Micro-current therapy is considered safe for people of all ages, but it is not recommended for people who use pacemakers and are intolerable of electromagnetic fields.
Micro-current therapy was first used in the 1980s in the USA to help stroke victims and other people suffering from the partial paralysis of their face, causing it to droop down on one side. Micro-current treatment helped to pull the paralyzed muscles back into position. This effect has now been adapted for use in non-surgical, cosmetic enhancement.
Micro-current face lift procedures and skin treatments are designed for aging skin, but can also be used on younger skin to slow down the aging process. Key benefits of this treatment include:
* Reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles
* Even skin tone
* Tighter, firmer skin
* Reduction or elimination of age spots
* Reduction or elimination of superficial scars
* Drains excess water
* Hydrates skin
* Improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage
* reduces symptoms of sinusitis
* ‘shakes loose’ toxins from body
Results vary in each individual, typically, up to 15 sessions, plus monthly maintenance treatments, are required, depending on the desired result. The treatment is extremely relaxing, most of my clients actually fall asleep! And when they wake up, their skin is transformed. Along with the micro-current therapy, collagen eye pads and neck pads are applied to maximize the result. Drink plenty of water afterward, it will have a purifying effect on your system as the fluid washes the toxins from your body.
