Microcurrent Therapy - Cell Regulation
Healing on a cellular level
Microcurrent therapy uses extremely small pulsating currents of electricity. These currents are finely tuned to the level of the normal electrical activity within the cells. They have the ability to penetrate cells rather than passing over them as other stimulation devices do. Microcurrent therapy works on the ARNDT - SCHULTZ law which states that weak stimuli increase physiological activity while very strong stimuli inhibit or abolish activity.
Studies have revealed that microcurrent therapy helps in restoring metabolic processes that are responsible for healing. It is believed that Microcurrent therapy can regulate the energy levels of the body by promoting ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production, which is the major energy fuel for all biochemical reactions within the body. As energy levels increase, the body's ability to remove metabolic wastes is enhanced, thus preventing an accumulation of toxic substances, improving nutrient distribution and boosting blood circulation. As a result new healthy cells are being produced.

Nonsurgical Facial (Lunchtime facelift)
What causes our facial skin to wrinkle and sag? As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to get stuck 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. The treatment lifts, smoothes, tightens and tones. Probes are used to physically move the muscle into the desired position to perform muscle re-education – the process of lengthening or shortening muscles. Having muscle re-education movements performed in a series re-trains the muscles to maintain this new contour. Microcurrent treatment supplies the muscles with the necessary energy to keep their tension in this new contour.
Since you are re-educating the muscle tissue, it is crucial that you receive a series of treatments for results to reach their maximum potential. Once a series is completed, the results can be maintained by coming in every 4-8 weeks for maintenance treatments. Additionally, a series can be repeated every few years. If the full series of treatments is completed and maintenance sessions are continued on a monthly basis, results should last 3-4 years.
The Age Defying Microcurrent Facial is one of the fastest growing services in the esthetic anti-aging industry today.
Microcurrent has been proven to provide the following:
- 500% increase in cellular energy (ATP) to muscle cells leading to increased muscular tone
- 12% increase in natural collagen production to increase hydration and fullness
- 48% increase in natural elastin production
- 39% increase in blood circulation
