Recent microcurrent studies performed at the University of Washington School of Medicine,indicate a 14% increase in the production of natural collagen, a 48% increase in natural elastin production and a 8% increase in blood circulation over the course of 20 days.
A microcurrent face sculpture delivers a variety of benefits to patients who wish to attain a healthier and younger looking appearance. A series of microcurrent treatments can provide:
- Improvement in muscle tone in the face and neck
- Lifting of jowls and eyebrows
- Skin exfoliation
- Improvement in product penetration
- Reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improvement in facial circulation
- Improvement in firmness of skin
And much more
SERIES: Prescribed in a series of 10 to 20 treatments based on health of skin and age.
MAINTENANCE: One treatment is administered every 3 to 6 months. Consult with your skin care professional for maintaining your skin in between maintenance appointments.
LAYERING: This service can be layered successfully with multiple technologies including LED, Microdermabrasion, injectables, and oxygen infusion.
UTILIZATION: Excellent when incorporated both before and after surgery or in conjunction with injectables or laser treatments. Very effective as a stand-alone service, but equally efficacious as an add-on to facial treatments.
TREATMENT TIME: Approximately 1 hour.
What is MicroCurrent?
Microcurrent is low level current that mimics the body's natural electrical currents, triggering chemical reactions at a cellular level to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin and provide circulatory benefits. The result is immediate, firming, smoothing and re-hydration of the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Treatments are administered by a trained, licensed skin care or medical professional. Please discuss your medical history and conditions with your clinician before receiving treatments. Evaluation of your information will determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. For all serious health problems, consult a qualified health professional. We do not offer medical advice or treatment.
Clinicians can sculpt and contour the face and body using microcurrent. Microcurrent is a low level current that triggers a chemical reaction at a cellular level. Microcurrent increases the natural production of collagen and elastin, provides circulatory benefits, and assists in product penetration (iontophoresis). It maximizes production of ATP and consequently may promote healing and regeneration.
Microcurrent at the cellular
All living things — plants and animals — require a continual supply of energy in order to function. The energy is used for all the processes which keep the organism alive. Some of these processes occur continually, such as the metabolism of foods, the synthesis of large, biologically important molecules, e.g. proteins and DNA, and the transport of molecules and ions throughout the organism. Other processes occur only at certain times, such as muscle contraction and other cellular movements. Animals obtain their energy by oxidation of foods, plants do so by trapping the sunlight using chlorophyll. However, before the energy can be used it is first transformed into a form which the organism can handle easily. This special carrier of energy is the molecule adenosine triphosphate, or ATP.
ATP – (adenosine triphosphate) is an organic chemical compound that provides most of the energy required by cells during its conversion to another chemical compound ADP.
ADP – (adenosine diphosphate) is a chemical compound in living organisms that is formed when another chemical compound (ATP) breaks down to release energy that is used by cells.
