TWO VERY SPECIAL FACIAL TREATMENTS – MICROCURRENT & LED:
“Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation Treatment”
This non-invasive facial treatment incorporates microcurrent technology to dramatically tone, firm and lift the skin and reduce lines and wrinkles. Visible results after one treatment, For dramatic, lasting results, a series of 10 treatments performed over 5 weeks is recommended. Includes cleasing and microcurrent application only.
“What is Microcurrent?”
Microcurrent is a facial treatment that physically firms and tones the skin through muscle reeducation. This process of gentle “re-education” of the fine facial muscles stimulates them with very small maounts of electricity . Microcurrent is a specific amount of electricity that mirrors the body’s own natural current and works in harmony with the body’s electricial system.
“Microcurrent & ATP Energy”
Microcurrent impulses trigger a chemical reaction at a cellular level to increase the effectiveness of how our bodies use ATP (adenosine triphosphate) a protein that is referred to as “the energy of life”. Microcurrent mimics the electrical signals from the brain to the message center of the muscle which is the tendon. The microcurrent stimulates the tendon thus aiding in strengthening the muscles by bringing more definition to the face and body. By reproducing the body’s own biological current we can re-establish muscle memory naturally.
For muscles to contract they need energy, that energy comes from ATP. ATP is the only energy source that muscles have to power their activity and these muscle fibers store only a limited supply of ATP. So, by increasing the supply of ATP to these muscle fibers, microcurrent plays a crucial role in cell metabolism and plumping up those slack muscles. Microcurrent rejuvenates also enhances fibroblast activity (collagen) and protein synthesis (elastin) .
This facial treatment is a non-invasive procedure done with red/infrared lights that deliver low level pulses of light and acts like photosynthesis for the skin. Multiple LED treatments will dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crows feet, clear blemishes and minimize pores, improve the appearance of skin tone and texture, reduce dark spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, redness broken capillaries and enlarged pores. For maximum results, a series of 8 treatments over a 4 week period are recommended. Includes cleansing and LED only and is safe and effective for all skin types.
Hand LED Treatment
Do your hands show your age? This deluxe hand rejuvenating hand treatment includes a microdermabration to exfoliate the hands. A light chemical peel follows this, and 10 minutes of LED light therapy and finished off with a paraffin treatment and relaxing hand massage.
“What is LED and How Does It Work?”
LED uses low intensity light emitting diodes to create a process similar to plant photosynthesis whereby plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into cellular building blocks. The light emitted by the LED is absorbed by epidermal cells and produces a remarkable cascade of events.
“LED Boosts ATP”
ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate, that form of energy that cells utilize, is produced in this process and used to power the metabolic processes that synthesize DNA, RNA, needed proteins, enzymes and other biological materials needed to repair or regenerate cell and tissue components, foster mitosis or cell proliferation and/or restore homeostasis.
The primary goal of non-ablative rejuvenation is the stimulation of new collagen and dermal extracellular matrix substance, which visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles without disturbance or damage to the overlying epidermis.
