History

The Non-surgical Face Lift was originally based on an acupuncture treatment which regenerated the wrinkle sagging facial muscles of post stroke and Bell’s palsy patients. Microcurrent was then added for better and faster results. Microcurrent was used very successfully for regeneration of skin ulcers and burns, as well as for muscle regeneration and strengthening after trauma in Olympic athletes.

Usually results are seen after the first treatment, and even more improvement is noted a few hours later or the next day. Skin tone, complexion and coloration improve notably with each treatment.

During this treatment can be treated other skin conditions like:

Brown spots/patches
Pimples or acne
Dark circles/rough dark skin
