Microcurrent

What is Microcurrent?

 

Microcurrent is known to be the most effective non-surgical method to take years off the face. Our treatments take the efficacy of microcurrent to a new level by pairing it with gentle, restorative acupuncture points used on the body to rebalance the constitution. Along with award winning Éminence Organics skin care products, this combination provides dramatic results and is incredibly relaxing. Since microcurrent is sub-sensory, and since our gentle acupuncture is so stress releasing, most patients fall asleep during treatments.

 

We first need to understand 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 allows the muscles 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 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.

 

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 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
