BENEFITS OF MICROCURRENT
Understanding the true benefits of microcurrent demonstrates that it is more than a temporary remedy. It is administered with an understanding that it has accumulative effects on tissue over time to support the integrity of the skin barrier, epidermal and dermal cells and systems, collagen, and elastin production (fibroblast cells), muscular and circulatory systems. Collectively, its benefits assist in reduction of inflammation and stress to support the internal health of the skin.
Microcurrent is also an excellent technology for pre (preparation) and then post-surgery procedures during tissue remodeling (plastic surgery) since it enhances the healing process supporting re-epithelialization. Microcurrent can reach the Golgi tendon organ in the muscles supporting the lifting, firming, and toning of gravitational muscles. Microcurrent gently stimulates collagen synthesis in dermal tissue. Additionally, there is an increase in blood and lymphatic circulation with encouragement of ATP production in cells.
Given that the effect of true microcurrent has an accumulative effect on the skin, it should be performed in a series of sessions, closely monitoring, and adjusting the program. Results are specific to each client reliant upon age and health a willingness to follow preventative measures for longevity.
HOW IS MICROCURRENT COMPLIMENTARY TO BOTOX?
Integrating microcurrent for long term age management and prevention is complimentary to those who choose to continue using Botox. Many users feel that injections are going to help prevent aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, especially in the forehead and glabella area. Botox doesn’t erase wrinkles. Rather, it temporally paralyzes the muscle’s ability to contract but the wrinkles are still there.
WHAT ABOUT FILLERS?
Many clients have chosen to use BOTOX® and/or fillers or surgical intervention. Protocols for integration of microcurrent and corrective care will vary depending upon each circumstance. See our chart below for a reference.
