Micro-Current Non-Surgical Facelift
Salon Anti-ageing treatments that make a marked difference
Here is a snippet of one of my favourites!
My experience as a beauty and skincare specialist allowed me to see courses of treatments sold within salons that made a marked difference to clients skin.
Courses of treatments are favoured by salons and specialists alike as there will be more scope for improvement. Courses usually run between 7 and 10 sessions and will depend on the compatibility of the treatment to the client but will have more of an overall effect than a single treatment. There are however those key treatments that have real science and technological know how at the root and therefor stand out from the crowd.
Some of the best results seen during a course of treatments was for me, in terms of skin refirming, the Non-Surgical Facelift. Now, this treatment is non-invasive, it is completed in a salon environment with your skin specialist, the procedures are relaxing and enjoyable. Many a client of mine fell asleep during their treatment. The basic premise of this treatment is to send a small Micro-current through the muscle by gently holding each muscle of the face for a set amount of time at specific point, this stimulates the muscles, surrounding cells and blood flow to the treatment areas thus improving the muscle tone and skin appearance. This can be a game changer for a sagging jawline, highlighting the cheekbones (accentuating the muscle on your cheekbone – zygomatic muscle).
Below is information provided by a salon (URimage), this is how the procedure is marketed by salons in general:
What is a ‘Micro-current Non-surgical’ face lift?
With age, weight gain, lifestyle or environmental factors, our facial muscles can tend to lose elasticity which can cause fine lines or a sagging chin; something that is a lot harder to target when trying to loose weight or when working out. A sagging face can cause you to look older than you are and can often make you look tired even if you may not feel tired physically.
At URimage we specialise in providing an effective non-surgical micro current face lift to reduce sagging chins and to visibly tone the skin, giving your face more of a contour.
What is Micro-current therapy?
This type of process has been researched into and developed for over 20 years, used popularly in the beauty industry to help enhance the appearance of skin tissue. As well as being highly effective it is a non-surgical process which means it is a quick and affordable alternative and pain free whilst still delivering results.
Did you know? this type of therapy is used by various big names like; Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Cliff Richard and many more.
How does it work?
Originally used to treat facial palsy, This process involves zapping small electrical currents in to your face to help tone and tighten facial muscles. At URimage we have a highly trained specialist who carefully carries out this procedure with precise movements, targeting the problem area and because of it’s low intensity, this process does not cause a physical or visual contraction of the muscle. Cotton buds are then used on the surface of the face to help transmit the micro-current energy to the facial muscles helping to restore tone and elasticity in the face.
Micro-current therapy also:
- re-educates muscles
• increases blood and lymph circulation
• enhances the penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulations
• increases the production of collagen and elastin
• increases protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis and cell membrane transport
At URimage we offer several packages which include regular Micro-current Non-Surgical Face Lift treatments. Whilst results can be noticed from the first treatment, it is recommended that top ups are performed regularly to achieve the best results.
The above text is accurate and although this seems like a quick fix, it does require a course of treatments which usually carry a price between £120-£200+, the results will vary according to the clients skin type and clarity (Microdermabrasion is an excellent pre-treatment when considering Micro-current).
There are many brands n the market, we will look at these in more depth later on..This really is one to consider!
