Microcurrent skin rejuvenation
We offer microcurrent treatments in a package of 15 for $435.
We also utilize microcurrent in our highly effective and popular"high tech high touch anti-aging treatment."
What is microcurrent?
MicroCurrent Technology is the only aesthetic treatment available that can physically firm and tone the skin through muscle re-education. This process of a gentle ‘re-education’ of the fine facial muscles stimulates them with very small amounts of electricity. MicroCurrent is a specific amount of electricity that mirrors the body’s own natural current and works in harmony with the body’s electrical system. MicroCurrent impulses trigger a chemical reaction at a cellular level to increase the effectiveness of how our bodies use ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a protein that is referred to as ‘the energy of life’. MicroCurrent mimics the electrical signals from the brain to the message center of the muscle, which is the tendon, the MicroCurrent stimulates the tendon thus aiding in strengthening the muscles by bringing more definition to the face and body. By reproducing the body’s own biological current we can re-establish muscle memory naturally. For muscles to contract they need energy, that energy comes from adenosine triphoshate ( also known as ATP.) ATP is the only energy source that muscles have to power their activity and these muscle fibers store only a limited supply of ATP. So, by increasing the supply of ATP to these muscle fibers MicroCurrent plays a crucial role in cell metabolism and plumping up those slack muscles. MicroCurrent also enhances fibroblast activity (collagen) and protein synthesis (elastin) because of the increased activity of ATP.
The result is immediate firming, smoothing, and re-hydration of the skin while greatly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microcurrent is also referred to as facial sculpting treatment. It also helps acne leisions heal and calms rosacea. This is a procedure that has NO DOWNTIME and noticable results are immediate. Microcurrent facials are painless and so relaxing that most clients often fall asleep during the treatment.
How does it work?
As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to "stick" in these positions. A great example of this is the furrow between the eyebrows that many people get. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. An example of this can often be seen around our jaw lines, chins and necks where we tend to develop sagging or loss of definition as we get older. As we age, skin cells become less active, which leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin. By the age of 45, the upper cheek muscles may elongate by as much as half an inch, dragging the skin over the cheeks downward to form plump little pouches at the corners of the mouth. The muscles under the chin become loose and the jaw line loses its firm contour. There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the microcurrent facial treatment
Research on microcurrent technology:
Microcurrent facial is one of the fastest growing services in the esthetic anti-aging industry today. Microcurrent has been proven to show a:
500% increase in cellular energy (ATP) to muscle cells leading to increased muscular tone
12% increase in 20 days in natural collagen production to increase hydration and fullness
48% increase in 20 days in natural elastin production
39% increase in 20 days in blood circulation
