As both an esthetician and holistic health coach, I am continually investigating healthy ways to improve the skin. I have been especially interested in the science of microcurrent and have done extensive research in this regard. Microcurrent is a form of esthetic massage which uses low levels of electrical current to re-energize aging skin cells.
MICROCURRENT ~ THE ULTIMATE ANTI-AGING TOOL
I am thrilled to announce that I completed extensive training on a wonderful new device that has amazing capabilities. My high-tech machine combines microcurrent with two other modalities for superior results. The device connects to a tablet computer which allows a specific profile to be created for each individual based on their unique skin type and condition.
As always, I am committed to providing services that are safe as well as effective. What makes this device so special, is that it performs treatments that are HOLISTIC; which means that it works in harmony with the body…unlike laser, peels, dermabrasion, etc. which damage the skin while “purporting” to improve it.
Benefits of Advanced Microcurrent Treatment:
- Holistic, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Calms inflammation caused by rosacea and acne
- Builds muscle and tightens the skin without the use of fillers
- Increases blood circulation and ATP (cell energy) resulting in collagen and elastin production
- Targeted treatment relaxes the muscles that create frown lines and crow’s feet
- Enhanced product penetration enables more nutrients to reach the cellular level
- Works in harmony with the body
- Safe and effective
Skin Aging As we age, our body’s biological current and chemical energy slows down, cellular renewal takes longer and skin cells don’t perform as efficiently. This can lead to loss of tone, elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Microcurrent can help reverse this process by re-energizing and increasing the levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), known as the “energy of life.” With each treatment, ATP levels are stockpiled, which is why microcurrent results are cumulative and last longer as a series of treatments progress.
Clinical Studies “Examination of skin tissue treated with microcurrent showed a 45% increase in the number of elastin fibres in the dermis, and the length of the fibres on average doubled. The collagen thickness in the connective tissues increased by 10% and the number of blood vessels increased by 35%. The application of microcurrent to skin and tissues produced a firmer and tighter feeling on the skin surface.”
How does microcurrent work? Also known as facial toning, microcurrent is an esthetic treatment that physically firms and tones the skin through reeducating the aging muscles. This process is achieved by stimulating 32 of the 53 facial muscles at traditional acupuncture points with tiny amounts of electricity to re-energize their biological currents and re-establish muscle memory.
What does it feel like? The extremely low level of electricity generally causes little to no sensation. Microcurrent facials are painless and often so relaxing that many clients fall asleep during treatment.
How often should treatments be done? Treatments can be done monthly, but best results are obtained by re-educating the facial muscles weekly for 6-10 sessions, continuing with muscle memorization every 10 days for 4 sessions, and monthly maintenance thereafter. Individual results will vary due to age, ethnicity, skin condition and lifestyle.
Would a single, occasional treatment be worthwhile? Absolutely! This would be perfect for the client who desires a refreshed appearance for a special party or event…or just because.
What’s included in the session? The skin will be cleansed, toned and exfoliated prior to treatment followed by the application of high-potency serums with targeted ingredients. Client will remain fully dressed with a head wrap while relaxing on the table. The session will take approximately 45-60 minutes.
How long has this technology been around? The medical community has safely used microcurrent for many decades. Its use as an esthetic treatment was established when a physician used it to treat his Bell’s palsy patients for paralysis, noticing that the facial lines were much softer, the face more lifted and the eyes less droopy.
Why is Lori’s advanced microcurrent device superior to the competition? This advanced “multi-modality” microcurrent device allows a specific computer profile to be created just for you. The intelligent circuitry at the heart of this device will measure your unique tissue composition to achieve the best results in facial contouring possible.
Note: There are some contraindications to receiving treatment as follows: Pregnant or trying to conceive; epilepsy or history of seizures; arrhythmia or implanted pacemaker; history of cancer; Botox or cosmetic fillers (90 day wait period); blood thinners.
All clients must schedule a complimentary consultation before committing to microcurrent treatment. You will be provided with a Client Intake Form for completion and evaluation. It will give me some background as to your health, your skincare issues and your goals.
