January 17th, 2011

Tracy Hopkins was kind enough to reiterate some of the research I did way back when I was looking into Microcurrent and its benefits. I use microcurrent in my Triple Crown Facial, a three step facial, that is know for making the person look years younger. You will SEE remarkable results from your first facial, define jawline, accentuated cheek bones, reduce lines and wrinkles and your skin will be calm and glowing.

Microcurrent history and benefits

I’ve become rather fond of microcurrent treatments. It’s like a gym workout for your face. Microcurrent stimulates collagen and elastin, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. But what exactly is it?

Joanna Vargas, one of my favorite day spas in New York City offers an expert explanation of the treatment on it’s website. So I’d like to share the information.

All About Microcurrent And Its Use

HISTORY: In 1830, Dr. Carlos Matteucci discovered that injured tissue in the human body discharged electricity and since that discovery, over 120 years ago, many experiments with microcurrent have been done to validate his findings. The use of microcurrent has become an acceptable form of therapy in the treatment of wounds, soft tissue and bone fracture because of its ability to heal the body at a rate of 250% to 350% faster than someone not using microcurrent therapy. However, it was the accidental discovery of a physician treating Bell’s palsy patients for paralysis that lead microcurrent to become integrated into the aesthetic field. He noticed that the face of his patients were smoother and they appeared much younger looking after treatments.

WHAT IS MICROCURRENT: Microcurrent, meaning mild electrical current, is a near duplicate electrical current to that which your body generates on its own. It is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40 watt light bulb and therefore generally sub-sensory. It was discovered that an injured or damaged tissue in your body, disrupts the natural flow of electricity generated by it. Therefore, preventing or delaying your body from healing itself. When microcurrent is applied to the injured or damaged area it restores the natural flow of electrical current and therefore the healing can begin.

HOW DOES IT APPLY TO AESTHETICS? If you have skin with fine lines or wrinkles, sagging muscles or lost elasticity, this is simply damaged skin. Microcurrent has the ability to restore the lost energy to your tissues and thereby turning back the hands of time in your skin. When you get a microcurrent facial, the facial muscles and your skin are being giving a workout that stimulates collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins needed for the skin to remain youthful and glowing. A microcurrent facial is in essence a non-surgical facelift that will leave your skin looking amazing.

IS IT SAFE: Pregnant women and people with any kind of heart condition will be prevented from receiving the treatment. However a person in relatively good health can get this wonderful treatment without any side effects.

BENEFITS: Microcurrent facials are a safe and non-invasive procedure that will sculpt your face, accentuating cheek bones, smoothing out wrinkles and defining your jaw line. Your skin will look amazing and the results are cumulative.

Additional benefits are, lymphatic drainage, regeneration of connective tissue, tones and tightens the skin, enhanced skin elasticity, skin pigmentation is improved. YOU will see results after the first facial and a vast improvement after each one.

MICROCURRENT FACIAL: 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 will enhance the benefits greatly. 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!
