Micro-current Facelift (Non-needle / non-surgical)

Micro-current is a non needle acupuncture and meridian balancing system using therapeutic grade essential oils.

Other non surgical face lift procedures focus on local area only: Botox, Thermage, Dermabrasion, Collagen injections, Peels, Creams, Laser etc. Results may be less complete and may not last as long. Toxicity issues are a concern as are infection, skin irritation and permanent damage.

Micro current = .6 milliamp maximum (600 micro amps). Compared to regular acupuncture or conventional TENS a very short treatment time needed. It would take one million micro current machines to light a 40 watt light bulb! These small, therapeutic doses augment the body's own healing ability with no discomfort to the patient. Micro current eliminates overdoses, over stimulation, misuse and side effects.

Because your skin is one of your body's protective mechanisms, it is easily damaged by external causes such as sunlight and pollution and internal causes such as poor nutrition, lack of antioxidants and essential fatty acids, stress and cigarette smoke.

Free radicals are molecules in the body that steal electrons from other healthy molecules damaging healthy cells. Collagen fibers in our bodies are especially susceptible to free radical damage. This results in cross linking of the collagen causing skin to become stiff and inflexible and to look "old". Scientists believe free radical damage is one of the primary causes of age related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, and arthritis! Sunlight is a major cause of free radical damage, as is pollution and cigarette smoke. Powerful antioxidants can trigger the collagen digesting enzyme to only attack damaged collagen, thereby improving or erasing a wrinkle. Essential fatty acids can dramatically reduce the body's production of inflammatory compounds.

Non surgical Micro-current face lift alone can produce profound improvement in your skin. For maximal improvement in your skin, the following steps are also important:

Muscular Re-education of the Face and how it works: A tiny electrical current administered through two Q tipped probes attached to the 'Micro-current', which feels like a gentle tingle. MRF was originally developed to treat conditions such as Bell's Palsy, a condition where the muscles on one side of the face become paralyzed; and Tempero Mandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction, where the jaw joint malfunction creating many symptoms including headaches, jaw pain, ringing in the ears etc.

Micro-current stimulation works on the spindle cells and Golgi tendon organs, reflexes found within each muscle, which control the length and tone of the muscle. As the muscles regain tone and tighten up, the skin they are attached to also tighten up. Micro-current also increases circulation to the facial skin, improving the texture and elasticity of the skin.

How long does it take? With a series of 12 treatments, one to two times a week, the muscles of the face can be re-educated, regaining tone that has been lost with general aging and gravity. Facial changes such as crow's feet, frown or smile lines, general wrinkles, bags under the eyes, droopy lids etc.are gradually reduced. Although this technique cannot change the structure of the face, as a surgical face-lift can, it can take 10 to 15 years of aging off your face, with no risk to the patient. Upon completion of treatments, periodic maintenance treatments are recommended. If you are a non-smoker, without excessive exposure to the sun and generally a healthy person, you may only need a maintenance treatment every 3 months.

How can the Micro-current system help Acne or Rosacea? The electrical current reduces inflammation and promotes tissue regeneration. Healing is enhanced 150% to 300%. Treatments are approximately 25 minutes long, two to three times per week.
