What is microcurrent therapy?
With age, our natural current begins to slow down, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. The micro-current therapy mimics the natural current and goes beyond skin deep to tone facial muscles to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
How does it work?
A microcurrent facial involves the delivery of safe, painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to rehabilitate, firm and tone the facial muscles on both an immediate and long-term basis. As we age, our electrical impulses can slow down causing aging and sagging facial skin. Microcurrent facial machines gently work in harmony with the natural bioelectrical currents naturally found in our bodies to help speed up the natural regenerative process resulting in firmer, healthier, more youthful looking skin.
Origin of Microcurrent Therapy
In 1980, Thomas W. Wing. D.C., N.D., LAc., a fifth-generation Chinese Doctor is credited with introducing a microcurrent instrument 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.
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 have 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.
Microcurrent also promotes collagen and elastin production in your skin and has the ability to dramatically increase ATP production. ATP is basically the vitality of your cells. The buildup in ATP explains the lasting effects of microcurrent on re-educating the facial muscles to tighten and tone. To quote D. Tsoklis, an expert on the subject, "Microcurrent is the reproduction of your own biological current. As we age, this current, which sends messages from the brain to the muscles via the spinal cord, does not send those messages properly."
Microcurrent skin care treatment restores those messages from the brain to tell the skin to rejuvenate. It helps tone facial muscles by replicating our own biological currents. Clinical studies have shown that after twenty days of treatment collagen production increases by 14 percent, elastin increases by 48 percent, and blood circulation increases by 38 percent. Scientists have also found that microcurrent facelift treatments trigger the body's production of amino acids and ATP. Both of these accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production.
Microcurrent facial toning is a great alternative to getting a facelift since it is non-invasive, does not require any recovery time, gives instant results, and does not have the same potential for harmful complications as surgery does.
This is a technique used for both men and women that can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin.
Based on technology which has been successfully used in medicine, the technique utilizes microcurrent stimulation to restore healthy skin cells.
