Microcurrent Facials, The Natural Facelift
June 6th, 2008
Many of us know microcurrent facial as the wondrous European anti aging treatment found in many of the top spas and skin care salons around the United States. But did you know that microcurrent has been in used in the medical field for decades as an effective way of treating pain, burns, and sports injuries?
It has been credited by hundreds of medical studies for its range and efficacy in the healing of wounds and muscle rehabilitation. Its transition into the aesthetic field was a purely accidental discovery. A physician treating Bell’s Palsy patients for paralysis noticed that his patients had a more youthful appearance after treatments.
This discovery caused the integration of microcurrent technology into the aesthetic field, creating a revolutionary new anti aging technology. Many people consider microcurrent facials an alternative to cosmetic surgery as it is completely safe. So what are microcurrent facials and how does this anti aging technology really work?
Microcurrent, meaning mild electric current, is a near duplicate electrical current to that which the human body generates on its own. In 1830, Dr. Carlos Matteucci discovered that the human body generates electricity. He further maintained that any injured or wounded area of the body discharges electricity.
If that is the case then, an injured or damaged area disrupts the natural electrical balance of the body. It is this disruption that delays or prevents the body’s natural healing process from going into effect. When microcurrent is applied to any injured area of the body it begins to restore the natural flow of electricity in the damaged or injured tissues, allowing the body to begin healing itself.
Microcurrent is so slight, one cannot generally feel it. To give you an idea of its relative strength, it would take one million such machines to light a 40 watt light bulb.
How does this apply to aesthetics? Skin with fine lines or wrinkles, sagging muscles or lost elasticity is simply damaged skin or tissue. Microcurrent has the ability to restore the lost energy to the tissue and thereby turning back the hands of time in all of us.
A microcurrent facial is in essence a non-surgical face lift. The application of microcurrent to facial muscles and the skin thereof stimulates collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins needed for the skin to remain youthful and glowing. The production of this vital proteins begin a catalyst in the skin that produce some amazing results. This is why this treatment is so sought after by Hollywood stars, chic women and any one looking for a truly anti aging treatment that gives proven results.
Some of the benefits are lymphatic drainage, regeneration of connective tissue, lifting of the jowls and eyebrows, eliminates or reduces fine lines or wrinkles, tones and tightens the skin, enhanced skin elasticity, skin pigmentation is improved and much more. Most people report immediate results even after the first treatment and best of all, results are CUMULATIVE!
The many factors involved in aging such as pollution, stress and free radical damage are simultaneously addressed with microcurrent facials. This type of facial also called the red carpet facial or the re-sculpting facial is truly an anti aging wonder in the aesthetic field. And over time microcurrent facials have the ability to literally rejuvenate the face.
Most estheticians recommend a series of 2 to 3 in the first month and then 1 per month in order to maintain and increase the gains. Most clients think of it as a gym workout for the face! Microcurrent remains even after all these years one of the most revolutionary technologies in the anti-aging arsenal and is totally safe.
When a microcurrent facial is done by an expert the results are nothing less than miraculous and if used in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments such as LED light therapy, microdermabrasion or oxygen added to the facial, any of them will be enhance greatly by microcurrent. And one of the best things about this facial is that any skin type can get it as it is extremely gentle.
Additionally, even young people can benefit from it as it prevents the natural progression of aging from going into effect. Look your best at every age with a natural, healthy beauty regime!
