Mother’s Day Treatment: Microcurrent, LED Light Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage and Fascia Massage – Features + Benefits
When you hear of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez; all using micro current as part of their skincare regime, you know that they must be onto something which truly works! Often referred to as the natural facelift – micro current works by mimicking your own bodies’ natural energy currents. This modality, alongside others including LED light therapy, peptide-vitamin infusion, lymphatic drainage; and face, neck and fascia massage – all work together to promote cellular regeneration, collagen production and the release of facial tension.
In today’s blog post, we will delve deeper into some of the aforementioned modalities, and explore the processes and benefits of each.
Originally used to treat those affected by the medical condition, Bell’s Palsy – the treatment is making its way to the cosmetic field as well. A micro current facial works by first applying a thick gel to the face, similar to that used when conducting an ultrasound. Then, extremely low-voltage electrical currents are emitted via gloves or metal prongs, which mirror your own body’s electrical current. This recharges the cells with cellular energy known as ATP (Adino Triphosphate) which depletes as we age similar to a phone losing it’s charge. On a cellular level, this works to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. It’s for this reason many celebrities incorporate micro current into their skincare practice – with many practitioners using this in place of Botox. The skin and underlying muscles work to tone, tighten and regenerate.
LED Light Therapy
Again, working at a cellular level is our LED light therapy treatment which also increases the ATP charge. The LED light, deeply penetrates and targets the cells, photo-stimulating dermal blood flow, and healing skin. Your skin will look and feel rejuvenated, soothed and will absolutely radiate in tone and texture. Various colours can be used, depending on your specific skin concerns. For example, blue light specifically targets bacteria that can cause acne. Other colours which can be used include red for antiaging, yellow for reducing redness, orange for revitalization and green for pigmentation.
Lymphatic Drainage and Fascia Massage
As we age, our circulation slows down, causing sluggish skin-cell turnover. Our lymph nodes are also slower to detoxify and all these factors cause our skin to become more stagnant. Lymph’s are responsible for clearing out waste from the skin on a cellular level, while superficial fascia is the layer of connective tissue right under the skin on the face. The Fascia acts as the support and infrastructure for your skin, and is responsible for giving it lift and tone. It acts as a communication system and a sensory organ in connection of the nervous system. When we hold tension in our muscles and fascia, the lymph cannot move freely to detoxify waste from the tissue. The result? Dull looking skin, blackheads and hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, if your fascia is tight and carrying a lot of tension, this restricts blood flow and hydration within the face. This is why our lymphatic drainage and fascia massages are so effective in releasing and restoring your lymphatic and circulatory system. The result is plump, glowing looking skin which will feel free, supple and soft.
