MicroCurrent

MicroCurrent is a safe, relaxing, painless and non-invasive treatment that is clinically-proven for cellular repair and regeneration. It normalises cell function,  heals compromised skin and is used as a natural and holistic non-surgical face-lift procedure to take years off-the-face. MicroCurrent works at the cellular level to re-model, re-strengthen and renew skin tissue and muscle fibres in order to re-build skin’s integrity while toning the muscles. This makes it an ideal treatment that works as a non-surgical face-lift or as a healing and repairing treatment for compromised skins. It is safe for both male and female of all skin types, colours and conditions ranging  from normal skins to ageing, acne, reactive and sensitive skins.

 

MicroCurrent targets two key areas:

Non-surgical face lift – It stimulates 32 of the 53 facial muscles to lift, tone and contour the face, making it ideal for those who wish to get back their youthful looks without surgery. The benefits of this non-surgical facelift are visible, instant and cumulative leading to a fresher, more radiant and youthful complexion with defined facial contours. It diminishes fine lines, creases and wrinkles, restores the glow of youthful skin, visibly firms, tones, contours and lifts the overall droop, and tightens sagging jowls, double chins, and fatty cheeks, making it a relaxing and easy option to look younger in no time at all! It has gained popularity among Hollywood celebrities with a MicroCurrent treatment being performed during a feature on Oprah titled “Look 10 years younger in 10 days”.

Heal and Repair – Due to its repairing and regenerative properties, MicroCurrent is a very effective treatment for sensitive, problematic and acne-prone skins. It is also effective in increasing blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, helping sooth and calming inflammation. For this reason it has been used extensively to treat injuries and provide pain relief for athletes and sports teams, both amateur/recreational and professional.

MicroCurrent technology has been used in the medical field for over 60 years and is credited by hundreds of medical studies. It is an extremely low level of electricity that mimics our body’s own natural electrical impulses, so safe that it would take nearly 1 million of our devices to light up a 40-watt light bulb. It increases the level of Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP or cellular energy) by as much as 500% each session, which stockpile and compound with every subsequent session, thereby delivering very impressive results in reducing the overall visual appearance of ageing, and repairing and re-building impaired skin. It literally charges the body back to its more youthful electrical state, similar to a draining battery being plugged into a charger.

However not all MicroCurrent machines are created equal – the results achieved from true MicroCurrent treatments are fully dependent on the quality and engineering of the machine, combined with the training and qualifications of an expert practitioner to deliver exceptional results!

We first need to understand the ageing process.

Ageing occurs when the facial skin wrinkles and sags, and the muscles become overly contracted due to years of facial expressions and constant gravity, causing the overall lift of our face to decline. Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) is the “energy of life” or “molecular charge” that stores and transports energy for use in all cellular activity – DNA replication, regeneration, tissue repair including collagen and elastin synthesis, neurotransmission, and of course muscle contraction. Everyday, the human body uses the equivalent of its body weight in ATP. As we get older, our body loses much of its ATP which gradually slows down our cell metabolism, similar to a battery gradually losing its charge. This causes a reduction of blood flow and oxygen eventually leading to the breakdown of collagen and elastin within the skin and loss of muscle tone, causing the signs of ageing – saggy and uneven skin texture with lines, wrinkles and folds. Often our muscles become stuck in certain expressions that we have become accustomed to over time e.g. frowns and furrows between the brows, squint lines around the eyes, drooping eyelids and sagging jowls lead to a loss of facial contouring, definition and atrophy of muscles hardly used in other areas of the face and neck. The average person does not really need invasive facial procedures to minimise these signs of ageing.

In your 30’s, wrinkles and age spots may begin to appear. Your skin may seem less radiant and may show signs of discoloration. In your 40’s, the collagen and elastin support network begins to break down. Lines and wrinkles become more prominent as your skin becomes dryer. The blood flow begins to slow down, leaving your skin with less of a blush. Once in your 50’s, new cell production decreases. Your skin retains less water, which increases wrinkle formation. At the same time, the underlying fat cells in your face shrink. By age 60, the body will have experienced a 50% deterioration in cell production.

MicroCurrent works by using extremely low levels of electrical current (a microcurrent) to stimulate a dramatic increase in ATP levels within the cells of the skin and muscles, thereby energising the various cell functions. Each tissue type within the body has its own unique electrical frequency which can be disrupted by disease or injury. MicroCurrent restores the normal frequencies within these cells by mirroring the body’s own natural electrical currents thus stimulating protein synthesis critical for tissue repair. This triggers the production of collagen and elastin within the skin and increases blood flow to the treatment area resulting in decreased inflammation, accelerated tissue repair, increased circulation and lymphatic drainage. As the facial muscles are directly connected with the facial skin, this energising charge is most visible as a lifted, toned and youthful sculpted face in non-surgical face lift. For compromised skins, this treatment delivers skin health through tissue regeneration and healing.

For Non-Surgical Face Lift: As the electrical probes or gloves are used to physically move sagging muscles into the desired positions, this re-educates 32 facial muscles by lengthening or shortening them as required to tone and return to their original shape. Similar to the way we keep our body toned with regular exercise, MicroCurrent treatments are an age prevention ‘skin-gym’ workout. A series of treatments train the re-educated muscle to maintain the new toned and contoured appearance for longer periods of time. The skin becomes firm, smooth and re-hydrated as the lifting, toning, sculpting and tightening effects cause the most visible signs of ageing to diminish, delivering an impressive youthful appearance.

MicroCurrent is a relaxing, safe, gentle, non-abrasive and 100% painless treatment which has been used in the medical field for over 60 years and credited by hundreds of medical studies. There are no special care requirements to worry about pre and post-treatment as it is a tissue repairing and regenerative therapy.

Being non-thermal, MicroCurrent does not heat, hurt or cause any damage to the skin tissue. It mimics our body’s own natural electrical impulses, and being sub-sensory no tingling sensation is felt during a MicroCurrent treatment as it does not stimulate the sensory nerve tissue. Clients look forward to this relaxing experience where they generally fall asleep during the session, thanks to its calming and soothing sensation.

Note: As a precaution MicroCurrent is not recommended for:

  • Pregnant women
  • People with heart pacemakers
  • People suffering from epilepsy
  • People suffering from thrombosis and phlebitis
  • People suffering from cancer or tumours

For Non-surgical Face Lift: From the first treatment you will notice a remarkable difference with your skin appearing clearer, brighter and smoother skin texture with less prominence of fine lines and wrinkles, more opened and defined eyes, and a visibly lifted and contoured face. A series of MicroCurrent treatments deliver longer lasting results of a lifted, toned, sculptured and contoured face and neck with increased muscle tone and healthy skin tissue. It re-educates the muscles and literally charges facial muscle and skin back to its more youthful state.

For Problematic Skin: You will see a remarkable difference after just one treatment as it hydrates the skin, calms inflammation and/or redness in compromised skins including psoriasis and eczema, and heals and clears acne-prone skin. Your complexion will look more fresh and vibrant with increased blood flow, tissue oxygenation and increased cellular ATP levels.

The best and cumulative long-lasting results are achieved over a series of treatments after which your skin’s tone, clarity, texture and hydration noticeably improves, and feels plump, softer, smoother, firmer, contoured, toned and lifted with reduced pore size.

Please Note: Results will vary with individual skin condition, which is in turn usually dependent on individual age, skin type, its current condition, skincare routine, lifestyle and environmental factors. In your initial consultation we will assess your skin’s condition and then give honest feedback as to what sort of results you can expect.

The number of treatments depends upon your age, skin condition and desire for optimum results. To obtain the best, visible and long-lasting results, a series of MicroCurrent treatments is usually required. As a general guide:

For Non-surgical Face Lift:
  • 20 – 30 years old: As a preventative to slow down the ageing process
  • 30 – 35 years old: An initial series of 6 treatments spaced at once a week; Maintenance thereafter every 6 – 8 weeks
  • 35 – 40 years old: An initial series of 8 – 10 treatments spaced at once or twice a week; Maintenance thereafter every 6 – 8 weeks
  • 40 – 50 years old: An initial series of 10 – 12 treatments; spaced at once or twice a week; Maintenance thereafter every 4 – 6 weeks
  • 50 – 60 years old: An initial series of 12 – 15 treatments; spaced at once or twice a week; Maintenance thereafter every 4 – 6 weeks
  • 60 plus years old: An initial series of 15 – 18 treatments; spaced at twice a week; Maintenance thereafter every 4 weeks
  • An ideal instant lift treatment that is perfect as a quick pick me-up for special occasions, lasting up to 2 days
  • Excellent for post-surgical facelift and in-between injectables to maintain the longevity of the results achieved
For Healing and Repair (of sensitive, impaired, blemished, problematic and acne-prone skin):
  • A series of 6 treatments; spaced at once per week; Maintenance thereafter as will be recommended.

None. MicroCurrent is a safe, gentle, painless and non-invasive treatment that does not compromise the integrity of the skin. As such it is a perfect lunch-time treatment for the busy person who cannot afford to have any downtime, as it allows you to get straight back into your normal routine.

Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the best cumulative results are achieved over a series of treatments depending on the individual’s current muscle tone, skin type and condition. Results keep getting better and better after each treatment as the stored ATP levels increase. Generally and if possible, treatments are recommended twice per week for the first 2 weeks, and the rest once a week until completion of the series.

As re-educating your facial muscle tissue with the MicroCurrent treatment is directly dependent on increasing the ATP levels in the cells, which stock pile with every session, it is crucial that you receive a series of treatments for the maximum potential and longevity of the results achieved. Results may last 48 – 72 hours in the initial treatments (depending on the age and skin condition), then 3 – 4 days by your 4th or 5th treatment. By the 6th or 8th treatment, muscle memory takes over and progress becomes more rapid and longer lasting.

After completing a full series, results can be maintained through regular top-up treatments, which can then last up to 3 – 4 years. As the natural ageing process is always progressing, your investment in the achieved results is best preserved with regular booster maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks after the initial treatment series. Avoiding a regular booster maintenance treatment means the ATP levels will drop and you risk losing the muscle memory after 6 months, beyond which you will have to start a new series to re-acquire the original youthful look. A series can also be repeated every few years for the longevity of the results as ageing is always progressive.

The condition of the skin and individual lifestyle including diet, exercise and regular skincare routine play an important part in extending the longevity of results. Post-treatment homecare serums that help support and maintain in-clinic results are highly recommended, as well as keeping the body well hydrated with 1 – 2 litres of water daily.

On their own, all of our treatments deliver effective results. When combined in a complementary multi-treatment program (Super-Charged Combination Therapy), they work at different levels within your skin to deliver visibly superior, more effective, targeted and longer-lasting results.

To ensure the best results, you must follow the correct Pre and Post-Care instructions.
