Skip Botox & Reverse Aging with Microcurrent Facials!

Look younger with the Microcurrent Treatments.  We have moved beyond Anti-Aging into Age Reversal!  Though I prefer to talk about aging gracefully, because we are going to age, it’s just about how we do it. Yes, we can truly prevent AND reverse aging now. And, THIS is how we do it!

What is microcurrent and what does it do?

The technology is incredible. Microcurrent was designed to lift and tone the muscles, replicating a workout for your face. It’s pretty incredible stuff.

We have electrical charges pulsating throughout our bodies. Microcurrent mimics the body’s own natural bio electrical field and sends tiny electrical currents to our muscles. According to CACI, a British company which has been making professional micro current machines for decades: “Combining ultra low frequencies with a modified waveform enables the micro-current to recharge the electrical potential of the muscle by stimulating the spindle cell fibers that run the length of the muscle and attach to the golgi tendon organ in the belly of the muscle.”

There are over 30 muscles in the face, and microcurrent can be used to stimulate the muscles. There is no muscle contraction. The muscle is woken up, and the current reminds it where it used to be (before gravity wore it down) and muscle memory is reactivated. So, used over time, the muscles are re-educated to resume their place for a perky and plumper look.[If this is giving you ideas about other areas to target on your body- don’t worry- we have you covered!]

Originally developed for treating facial palsy, microcurrent in the esthetic realm can also:

• Increase blood and lymph circulation

• Enhance the penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulations

• Increase the production of collagen and elastin

• Increase protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis and cell membrane transport

Additionally, research has shown that microcurrent may help with anti-aging at an even deeper level. In 1982, researcher Ngok Cheng led a study that provided hard evidence of microcurrent’s role in cellular vitality by proving that microcurrent increased levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in lab-rat skin cells by 500 percent. ATP is the fuel a cell needs to function. Actually ATP is a really big deal as it is the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It boosts protein synthesis, necessary for tissue repair.

The Difference: Cause and Effects of Botox versus Microcurrent

Botox inhibits the muscle movements that cause expression lines. If a muscle is immobilized, even temporarily, it will use less energy and start to atrophy. Indeed, atrophy can be utilized for esthetic effect — for example, a cheek can be given a hefty dose of Botox to slim it down. But for me, that’s one of the problems with Botox; muscle atrophy leads to sunken faces and skin that folds into marionette lines. Me, I’d rather opt for plumping.

And that’s where microcurrent comes in, as it lifts and re-educates muscles. Whereas Botox can make the face hollow and concave, microcurrent achieves what Dr. Perricone calls “convexities” in the face. “Convexities are what make you youthful,” he says.

Who and what is it good for? *

Anyone who understands the benefits of working out will understand the cause and effect of microcurrent!

Conditions: prevention, loose aging skin; sagging eye lids or jowls and neck; deep wrinkles around mouth; the lines between the brows; as well as acne, rosacea and uneven skin tones.

A series is recommended to improve the skin and then maintained with regular visits. Most clients of mine opt for a series of Microcurrent facials, and the results are nothing short of impressive. See before and after photos for yourself! Results are visible with one treatment and longer lasting with a series.

A single session is lovely for maintenance or just a little ” pick me up”, pun intended. 🙂  A series is recommended in a specific time frame to make lasting noticeable change in your skin, and then maintained monthly (actually recommended every 3 weeks) to uphold the results.

Great for getting immediate rewards.  The skin is lifted and NOT irritated which makes this an ideal treatment for brides, mothers of bride, any big events or reunions, and just to look your very best every day for YOU!

*Contraindications:  Pregnancy, Epilepsy & Pacemakers

Originally developed for treating facial palsy, microcurrent in the esthetic realm can:

• Re-educate muscles

• Increase blood and lymph circulation

• Enhance the penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulations (for the ultimate fountain of youth, see this facial combined with LED)

• Increase the production of collagen and elastin

• Increase protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis and cell membrane transport

Science Backed

Additionally, research has shown that microcurrent may help with anti-aging at an even deeper level. In 1982, researcher Ngok Cheng led a study that provided hard evidence of microcurrent’s role in cellular vitality by proving that microcurrent increased levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in lab-rat skin cells by 500 percent. ATP is the fuel a cell needs to function. Actually ATP is a really big deal as it is the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It boosts protein synthesis, necessary for tissue repair.

Recommended Visits as General Guidelines:

Anti-aging protocol based on age group NOT on specific conditions ic. acne/rocacea ect but for normal again skin.

Ages 20-35 Every 3-4 weeks for maintenance treatments.

Ages 35-45  Weekly every week for two months, then every 21 days for maintenance.

Ages 45-55  Twice a week for one month, once a week for the 2nd month, then once every 21-30 days for maintenance.

Ages 55-70  Three times a week for one month, once a week for 2nd month, followed by once every 10 days for maintenance.

*For 45 & up, I have seen improvements at just once a week, though, case by case and dependent upon condition.**

Microcurrent is used therapeutically to relieve muscle pain and to stimulate the muscles to restore a more youthful look to our faces.

DIY Micro current?

Indeed.  There are now safe and non-invasive, there are now available for use at home!  They are not all created equal so don’t be fooled.  Here is one I can endorse at a price that won’t break the bank!
