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 such as
Brown spots/patchesPimples or acneDark circles/rough dark skin
Improves muscle toneIncreases circulation, tightens the skin naturally Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and cellular metabolism. Enhances the skin’s own ability to heal, and looks more natural then surgical face lift. Promotes relaxation and general well-being, treats the whole bodyClients who have already had a surgical facelift greatly benefit from facial rejuvenation treatments ( Skin will be healthier, facelift will last longer ). Facial rejuvenation treats the blood stasis, scarring, and potential numbness and pain of surgical facelifts, even years later
Environmental and health factors which impact skin condition
Pollution, makeup, poor skin care – blocked pores. Sun exposure, dry climatesSmoking, alcohol, drug use. Decreased water intakePoor diet, lack of exercise. Stress, tension, emotional imbalance. Poor sleep, gravity – sleeping on side of the face, jogging, running
Surgical treatment vs. natural treatment
Surgery is not only costly, but may cause damage: scarring, bleeding, bruising, infection, and occasional nerve damage, which may lead to paralysis of facial muscle. Adverse reactions to the use of antiseptics, anesthesia, antibiotics and other medications
Suggested number of treatments for series – ten to twenty within a short period
Optimally, two or more treatments per week for first ten treatments, then one treatment per week for remainder. Patients under 40 years of age will generally need ten treatments; patients over 40 tend to need fifteen to twenty, depending on skin condition. Patients in their 30’s can begin treatment as a preventative measure to slow the aging process; this works on a cellular level to keep the skin healthySmokers, drinkers, drug users, and sunbathers usually need between fifteen to twenty treatments
Every four to six weeks; up to three months may elapse before maintenance is necessary. Clients may wish to be treated prior to special occasions (pictures, reunions, parties, holidays)
