A Microcurrent face lift is a non-surgical non-invasive cosmetic technique that provides an array of aesthetic benefits. A Microcurrent facelift utilizes a technology called microcurrent whereby a low level of electricity is gently delivered to the treatment area in order to trigger favorable chemical reactions at the skin's cellular level. The Microcurrent face lift electrical current is much like the body's own natural electrical current which provides a number of benefits.
A Microcurrent face lift can deliver a variety of benefits to patients who undergo this treatment. A Microcurrent facelift is safe and effective for the following purposes: to improve facial and neck muscle tone, lift jowls and eyebrows, rejuvenate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness and even out skin tone, improve facial circulation, skin exfoliation, lymphatic drainage, product penetration, sun damage treatment, and cellulite.
The action of a Microcurrent face lift enhances the body's natural collagen and elastin production, improves circulation, firms, smooths, and re-hydrates the skin. This technique was developed from the advancements made in microcurrent technologies used in medical and physiotherapy treatments. Microcurrent techniques are successful in treating a variety of medical conditions including Bell's Palsy.
The University of Washington has performed clinical trials to measure the benefits of the Microcurrent face lift procedure. Research has proven that a Microcurrent face lift can increase the skin's natural production of collagen by 14 percent, increase elastin by 48 percent and increase blood circulation by 38 percent. These Microcurrent face lift results were achieved in the first twenty days following this cosmetic procedure. Research has also found that the Microcurrent facelift technique increases the body's natural production of amino acids and ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate), both of which play a major role in cell heath and function to accelerate cell repair.
The Microcurrent face lift procedure itself takes approximately one hour to complete and is performed by a qualified esthetician. This specialist will use a two pronged cotton bud tipped instrument or gloves to gently deliver electrical stimulation in the muscles of the face. Approximately twelve Microcurrent face lift treatments are recommended to achieve the desired results. After this series of treatments, a maintenance follow-up program is recommended to sustain the Microcurrent facelift benefits you enjoy.
A Microcurrent face lift is a safe and incredibly satisfying cosmetic procedure with very little risk of unfavorable side effects. If you are interested in discovering more about Microcurrent facelift procedures, please contact us to confer with our estheticians.
Microcurrent Face lift – Pre and Post Cosmetic Surgery
A surgical face lift is fundamentally a procedure where the tissues of the face are drawn back and secured for a more youthful look.
For a more rapid dissolution of swelling and to accelerate the healing process, the use of gentle micro-current as a post operative cosmetic surgery treatment is highly recommended. Clients find the treatments both relaxing comforting and are happy to see their results sooner than those who that do not opt for this post-surgical type of treatment.
Additionally, after cosmetic surgery, some areas of the face and neck may temporarily lose nerve function or feeling. Gentle microcurrent can greatly benefit these localized areas of numbness and reduce the time it takes for the feeling to return to the area.
Traditional surgical face-lifts have a life of from five to ten years. The use of micro-current treatments extends the life of a surgical face-lift by toning the facial muscles and bringing circulation to the skin to help maintain the elasticity….. potentially avoiding another round of surgery in the future.
For clients contemplating a traditional face lift, the muscle toning and stimulation attained through treatments with microcurrent may help shorten the cycle of healing and the continued use will maintain the surgical results for years to come. By increasing circulation, we are able to provide the muscles with the nutrients they need to maintain muscle tone.
