There is a growing trend towards the desire for non-surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation. In some cases, this is due to medical limitations, while in other cases, time or finances may be a factor. A microcurrent facial repositions tired muscles and sagging skin, while stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. Thousands of men and women have experienced the relaxing and rejuvenating effects of microcurrent facials with results that are truly remarkable.
A microcurrent facial is a procedure that uses an extremely low voltage electrical current to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, while re-educating facial muscles. The procedure also increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which acts to detoxify and rehydrate the skin.
The current is so slight it cannot be felt, and is equivalent to one millionth of the power it takes to power one 40 watt light bulb. Not only is a microcurrent facial painless, patients report they experience an enhanced feeling of relaxation during treatment, and more importantly, they see improvement almost immediately.
Collagen and elastin are the proteins that provide substance and elasticity to the body’s tissues. Collagen plumps up the cheeks and adds youthful fullness, while elastin allows tissues to return to their original shape when stretched or moved.
Over time we lose both collagen and elastin, which causes sagging skin and wrinkles. Sagging skin creates hollows in the cheeks and emphasizes deep lines around the lips.
Loss of collagen and elastin also causes deep ‘laugh lines’ to form and the resulting sagging skin creates the appearance of tiredness and age.
Restoring collagen and elastin to tissues effectively turns back the clock to our more youthful selves. A microcurrent facial stimulates the natural production of these two proteins, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Using a specialized machine, minute electrical currents are directed at specific muscle groups to activate reactions at a cellular level. The muscles of the face are re-educated to return to a higher more youthful position, and as the series of treatments progress, facial muscles maintain this position for longer periods of time. This results in re-hydration of the skin, lifting of jowls, eyebrows and cheeks and tightening of loose skin.
A Lasky Aesthetics professional evaluates each person and recommends a series of treatments based on age, condition of the skin and personal goals. For example, people over forty might receive an initial series of 12 sessions every one or two weeks, with maintenance treatments once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Due to the non-invasive nature of microcurrent facials, most adults can benefit from this procedure. People in their twenties and thirties use microcurrent treatments to prevent early signs of aging. Those with visible signs of aging and surface damage rely on microcurrent facials for rejuvenation.
