something (as a symptom or condition)
that makes a particular treatment or procedure inadvisable.
Individuals are required to wait
two weeks after any facial / neck laser hair removal procedure or treatment.
Any recent injectables ie....
Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and others fillers 2 to 4 weeks down time.
(laser resurfacing will require more down time) up to 4-6 months.
Because some tissue lifts easier than others
a series of Micro-current treatments is recommended.
How does microcurrent work?
As we age, our body loses much of its natural electrical energy, much like a battery gradually losing its charge. On a cellular level, this leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin, which leads to sagging and unevenness of texture; lines, wrinkles, and folds become the inevitable result. Beneath the skin, the facial muscles become increasingly contracted over years of facial expression and constant gravity, allowing the overall lift of our face to decline.
Micro-current emits subtle electrical frequencies that mimic the body’s own electrical signals, thereby increasing the amount of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the chemical fuel of human cells) by as much as 500%. Such increased levels of ATP speeds cellular metabolism; the result is a detoxification that increases the rate of waste and impurity elimination. Protein synthesis and cellular membrane transport are also increased, as well as the reconstitution of collagen and elastin. The results of these processes can be seen in improved skin tone and coloration, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the firming of sagging areas of the face and body.
The body is literally being recharged back to its more youthful electrical state, as though a draining battery were plugged into a charger. With each treatment, ATP levels are stockpiled or stored, which is why Micro-current Facial Sculpting results are cumulative and become better as a series of treatments progresses.
When you combined Microcurrent and LED Light Rejuvenation it becomes ELR. Energy Light Rejuvenation is a facial rejuvenation that does not involve surgery or needles. It offers the advantages of:
No Side Effects
No Downtime for Healing
It is the perfect renewal system for those who want to approach beauty from a more holistic and natural perspective. ELR is much more than a cosmetic procedure. ELR™ is a revitalization process designed to make you look and feel renewed.
History of Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation
Microcurrent facial rejuvenation began after a physician treated a client for Bell’s Palsy one-sided facial paralysis with microcurrent. The client came back and asked that the same treatment be done for the other side of her face because she noticed a dramatic difference in her appearance on one side of her face, the one treated with microcurrent. The facial lines were much softer, her skin had a firmer tone and appeared lifted, and her eyes were more open. These results were repeated on the opposite side. The development of microcurrent facial rejuvenation progressed.
Additional benefits were also occurring beneath the skin. Clients stated they were feeling better, calmer, and had a greater sense of wellbeing!
Microcurrent is electric current in millionths of an ampere. It has the ability to relieve pain, increase the rate of wound healing, increase protein synthesis, stimulate the regeneration of injured tissue and stimulate lymphatic flow. Microcurrent flows at one millionth of an ampere and is therefore delivered at a scale similar to current the body produces on its own in each cell.
Microcurrent technology is the core of Energy Light Rejuvenation™. Microcurrent has been used successfully for decades by acupuncturists and other wellness professionals for pain management and the treatment of various medical conditions. It is an extraordinarily effective modality for meridian balancing, healing acceleration and non-needle acupuncture for needle sensitive patients.
What makes ELR™ different from other facial rejuvenation treatments?
Everything! Energy LED Light Rejuvenation™ stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin tissue by working in harmony with the natural process of the body. ELR™ is holistic and high-tech. The rejuvenation process of ELR™ has no negative side effects- no swelling, redness, numbness or flaking. We only offer the side benefit of feeling as great as you look!
ELR is an effective, natural alternative to a surgical facelift. It involves the use of microcurrent stimulation combined with therapeutic colored LED light applied in a specific protocol which includes the use of acupuncture points on the face. ELR works in harmony with the body's natural energy systems. The lifting and rejuvenation effects take place through the adjustment of facial muscle tone, detoxification and cleansing of the skin, and stimulation of the acupuncture meridian system.
By combining specially selected colored LED light to the correct acu-points of the body, the specific needs of each individual client are effectively addressed. The combination of microcurrent and colored LED light provides positive and lasting results. "Both microcucurrent and LED light help restore the energy circulation and communication within the cells of the body. The amount of aging we see in our faces is in direct proportion to the blockage and reduction of this energy communication in our bodies."
What are the expected results?
Most clients notice positive changes in their faces after the first session. A series of sessions is required to re-educate the facial muscles and accomplish rejuvenation of the facial tissues and energy systems.
Microcurrent Facial Resculpting
Americans spend billions of dollars on all forms of anti-aging procedures which may include invasive surgical face-lifts, topical chemical products and many other methods that may have detrimental side effects in the long run.ext.
Microcurrent uses a subsensory electric current that delivers a pulse to the facial muscles and stimulates them and the surrounding tissue. The esthetician’s skill is in manipulating two probes to massage the muscles whilst the current is being delivered to them. This stimulates the muscle fibers and they can be gently (this is not something you can really feel happening) toned or shortened.
The theory is that microcurrent improves the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the chemical in muscles that provides energy. However, there only seems to be one study backing this up and it goes back to the late 1980s – however, the results were an impressive 500% increase in ATP. Anyway, ATP is stored and so the effects of microcurrent treatments over time are cumulative.
I believe that microcurrent inherently appeals to people who really don’t like the idea of Botox. Indeed, I would say it works in the opposite way to Botox, which inhibits muscle movement in order to relax wrinkles. A muscle that doesn’t move will atrophy and the result (without more treatments) would be increased sagging. Microcurrent, on the other hand, is like giving the muscles in your face the equivalent of a bicep curl. Much more my kind of thing. Plus, it isn’t toxic.
Microcurrent is not a new technology (in the UK, the machines are called CACI) and it was originally developed to restore muscular functions for stroke patients. However, the machines have become more sophisticated over the last couple of decades with more sensitive controls that allow a good esthetician to really “sculpt” facial contours.
