Though we notice wrinkles when they pop up on the surface of the skin, they originate deeper below. Underneath the visible, epidermal layer is the dermal layer, which is where the aging action begins. That’s because it’s the source of elastin and collagen, the duo of proteins responsible for keeping skin springy and firm. Humans naturally stop producing collagen and elastin as they age, and this phenomenon, coupled with the skin’s increasing inability to retain moisture, is largely responsible for wrinkles. Without collagen, elastin, and water, skin doesn’t readily spring back after it’s folded by a smile, a frown, or the one expression of fear. It also loses its deep structural support, resulting in the sunken appearance that characterizes deeper wrinkles.
While genetics play a large part in determining the onset and severity of wrinkles, outside factors make a big difference in the number of lines that crisscross a given face. Of these, sun exposure is perhaps the most dramatic. Even setting aside the unpleasant visible and tangible effects of sunburn, researchers have found that UV light actually damages the ability of dermal cells to produce collagen. It’s no surprise, then, that the most effective wrinkle treatments work to kick collagen production back into gear, whether by applying the form of vitamin A known as retinol or by prompting tissue regeneration via the kind of microscopic, controlled tissue damage made possible by laser treatments.
Microcurrent is the easiest way to bring instant gratification, while continually building a vibrant illuminating appearance for long term health. There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the microcurrent facial treatment.
This Treatment uses a Suzuki Sequencing therapy to stimulate and reprogram the facial muscles. The stimuli allows the muscles to regain their elasticity and therefore corrects sagging skin. The blood circulation is increased and the pores are tightened, giving the skin a more refined and youthful appearance.
What is the difference between handheld or home use units and professional Bio-Therapeutic microcurrent?
While handheld and home units are novel, they are often imported gadgets that do not have the engineering and manufacturing standards behind them to support safety and results. Many use high levels of electricity that can be damaging and detrimental.
Bio-Therapeutic professional microcurrent equipment is programmed with exclusive Suzuki Sequencing technology for proven results. This technology is engineered with proprietary waveshape, frequency, and output calculations. Bio-Therapeutic is an ISO 9001 and 13485 certified manufacturer, and all microcurrent equipment is FDA approved and made in the USA.
What is Iontophoresis?
It is a form of electrical current, in this case, a separate setting on the microcurrent machine, to help penetrate product into the skin.
Q. WHAT IS A NON SURGICAL FACE LIFT
A. Non Surgical Micro Current Face Lift is a bio-feedback therapy that delivers a low frequency energy to stimulate and reprogram the facial muscles. The stimuli allows the muscles to regain there elasticity and therefore corrects sagging skin. The blood circulation is increased and the pores are tightened, giving the skin a more refined and youthful appearance.
Q. IS THE NON SURGICAL MICRO CURRENT FACE LIFT PAINFUL?
A. No. as a matter of fact the treatment is relaxing and pleasant.
Q. HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO A SURGICAL FACE LIFT?
A. It's better. With the Non Surgical Face Lift the changes are subtle and progressive. There is no chances of disfiguration, no swelling, no discoloration, no hospitalization, no down time. The results are more natural.
Q. HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
A. We recommend a minimum 5 to 12 treatments (depending on age and conditions of skin) to achieve the benefits. The treatments are given twice a week for up to six weeks.
Q. HOW SOON WILL I SEE A DIFFERENCE?
A. You will see a difference after your very first treatment. Your results will become more dramatic as the series progresses.
Q. HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
A. The results can last indefinitely with a scheduled monthly maintenance treatment and a proper skin care program.
Q. AT WHAT AGE SHOULD ONE START THE NON SURGICAL FACE LIFT?
A. Younger clients can benefit by preventing the effects of aging. Older clients can reverse the signs of aging. Tightened pores, increased circulation, rejuvenation and firmer skin.
Q. CAN THE TREATMENT BENEFIT SOMEONE WHO HAS ALREADY HAD A SURGICAL FACE LIFT?
A. Yes. Sagging skin is eliminated with surgery but the condition of the skin and muscles are not changed. This treatment will tone the muscles and improve skin elasticity.
Q. IS THE NON SURGICAL MICRO CURRENT FACE LIFT SAFE?
A. Yes. This technique has been used for medical purposes for years and is being used by beauty professionals and medical doctors. It is completely safe.
