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)
Suggestions for between treatments
Herbal cleansers and moisturizers should be used dailySelf-massage to enhance treatments. Water consumption should be six to ten glasses per day, especially on days of treatment. Watch your diet; avoid wax on apples and cucumbers due to its adverse effects on the large intestine. Avoid sleeping on the side and abdomen
Why Most Facials Don’t Have Lasting Results?
In most facials, the beautician works only on the skin of the face, trying through superficial work on the face skin to overcome deeper issues which are rising from imbalanced metabolism and hormonal system, weakness of internal organs, and high levels of ongoing stress in a person.
S.C.E.N.A.R. Therapy Facial is a course of facial treatments combined with work on internal organs like the colon and liver, which works to detoxify the body, balance hormone production, rejuvenate the body, and reduce stress through the production of neuropeptides and endorphins.
Before starting the treatment course, IMEDIS-TEST (the test which establishes potentially weak or congested organs and systems) is taken. This helps to plan the strategy of the treatment.
The S.C.E.N.A.R. device uses biofeedback by stimulating the nervous system; it is able to teach the body to heal itself at an incredibly fast rate. The device sends out a series of signals through the skin and measures the response. The brain mediates a bio-energy feedback by altering output every few milliseconds. Each signal is only sent out when a change, in response to the previous signal, is recorded in the electrical properties of the skin. The process initiates release of biological activators.
After the treatment patients generally experience an increase in energy, more refreshing sleep, and an improved sense of well-being.
Initially treatments are ideally given three or four times per week and can be done during a lunch break. As things improve, the frequency can be reduced. The number of treatments will vary from individual to individual, and takes into account such factors as the stage of the pathological process, the person’s age, state of health, and so on.
How does it differ from other therapies?
There are several ways in which it differs from other electrical therapies. Unlike TENS machines, each impulse is different from the previous one, so the body is unable to adapt to the signal. Because of the bio-feedback feature, the treatment is individually programmed by computer.
The S.C.E.N.A.R. impulse is high amplitude, so it stimulates C-fibers, which make up about 85% of the nerves in the body. This explains the quick effectiveness of S.C.E.N.A.R. therapy on the whole body.
The S.C.E.N.A.R. may affect the operation of cardiac pacemakers, particularly demand type pacemakers.
