What is a Non-Surgical Face Lift?
A non-surgical face lift is the next and best option if you do not want to get plastic surgery done. A non-surgical Face Lift includes: Micro-Current, LED, Micro-Dermabrasion, and Oxygen treatments.
What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is a low level of electrical current that mirrors the body’s own natural current. It’s proven and accepted properties and potential range of applications from wound healing, muscle rehabilitation, macular degeneration, to lymphodema continue to assist medical practitioners with amazing results. The intended results of microcurrent facial therapy is to aid in the battle of anti-aging by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the texture and appearance of the skin, re-educating and toning facial muscles, and reducing the overall visual appearance of aging. It is a popular non-invasive service that gives you the freedom to attain anti-aging goals without the recovery, downtime, and expense of surgeries.
How does it work?
This low level of electrical current (500 microamperes) works in harmony with the body’s natural healing processes. At a cellular level, microcurrent stimulates activity in the cell to create massive amounts (a 500% increase) of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), known as the “energy of life”. ATP drives a number of biological processes including muscle contraction/re-education and protein (collagen and elastin) synthesis. Facial toning is achieved through muscle re-education, working a muscle from its origin and insertion inward to shorten slackened muscles (such as in the cheeks or forehead), and working from the belly outward to lengthen contracted muscles (such as the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth downward). Microcurrent also offers specific iontophoresis which allows superior penetration of serums into the skin.
Is this a new technology?
No. It has been widely used Internationally and in the US, and has been approved by the FDA.
How often can I receive this treatment?
It depends on the condition of the skin and muscles and is largely determined by your age. Your skin care practitioner will determine how many sessions will be required and the length of time in between treatments. Usually, you will need a minimum of 10 treatments.
What type of skin can benefit from Microcurrent?
Microcurrent therapy aids in reducing the signs of aging of all skin types. Helps to reduce scars from acne and hyper-pigmentation.
Is this treatment painful?
No. Many people find it quite relaxing and fall asleep during the procedure.
How soon will I see some improvement?
Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of Microcurrent are cumulative, and as such, Microcurrent treatments are typically performed in a series to gain maximum anti-aging results.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes. It is safe, easy and gentle on the skin. The entire treatment is performed in a clean environment with disinfected tools. It is painless.
Is microcurrent for everyone?
While most people can benefit by the application of Microcurrent, there are some absolute contraindications; it cannot be performed on persons with epilepsy, pacemaker, pregnant women, or anyone with active cancer.
How long will the results last?
After you have completed the Age-Less series, maintenance treatments at 4 week intervals are recommended to retain your results.
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED is a non-invasive approach to working with light, and during the past 10 years, independent worldwide research from organizations such as NASA has shown that light applied in the correct wavelength stimulates inter-cellular communication, resulting in skin rejuvenation.
How does it work?
LED red and near-infrared light are a “window” of wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep. Red and near-infrared have beneficial effects on cells by “kick-starting” them into immediately creating more ATP (cellular energy) and increasing DNA and RNA activity. This effect has been carefully studied in many published reports since 1987.
What are the benefits?
Not only is LED effective, but it also has the added benefit of being painless and relaxing, with no recovery time required. LED creates collagen production, smooths fine lines & wrinkles, firms skin tone, improves skin texture, and helps to minimize puffiness.
How long will it take?
Treatment times vary and are determined by each individual clients needs. A series is needed to achieve optimal results.
