What is Microcurrent technology?
There are many different disciplines in the vast field of electrophysical technology. Their conjunctive relationship is the natural electrical current operating within the body. One difference between each discipline is the method of approach to the body with respect to this current.
Microcurrent is not only a term, but also a technology that grew out of the expansive field of electrophysiology. Modern medical science acknowledges multiple processes in the body that are electrical. Every cell in the body can be seen as an "electrical generator" which generates electrical currents. These currents are measured often by means of electrical activities in the skin (GSR), the brain (EEG), the heart (EKG), and the muscles (EMG). (Moss) Microcurrent technology works hand in hand with these currents. This technology recognizes the body as a self-healing organism and supports its many natural occurring functions. In turn, microcurrent achieves a variety of results in the many facets of youth, health and wellness.
The human body is an electrical being and the health of it depends on the energy currents that run through the body. When the body suffers a trauma, (acne, sprain, fatigue etc ... ) it encapsulates itself in some manner for healing purposes (inflammation, swelling, spasm etc ... ). During a healing crisis such as this, normally free flowing currents will circumvent the area of trauma and travel around it. This happens because electrical current always takes the path of least resistance. (Arndt,Schulz) As a result, the flow of electricity in the traumatized area is significantly reduced or possibly void. At this point, the body as a self-healing organism is not recovering optimally.
Coupled with a trauma and a healing crisis, the details of the body's needs are now more severe. In order to return to a homeostatic condition the body must regenerate and heal itself. This process begins within the body at the cellular level. The injured cells need increased oxygen, protein synthesis, ion exchange and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). (Cheng) The polarity of the cells must be re-balanced, waste and toxins must be eliminated quickly and the absorption of nutrients and reduction of microbes is essential.
Microcurrent stimulates the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), which is stored cellular energy that allows a cell to function. This in turn triggers the body's natural bio-chemical healing process. This process allows intracellular fluids to be restored, electrolyte levels to be replenished, and the absorption of nutrients. The stimulation of intracellular calcium further strengthens cellular balance and healing. Amino acid uptake is increased, as well as protein synthesis, which assists in tissue repair. Blood circulation and lymphatic flow are increased. These vital functions are increased five fold with microcurrent technology to promote optimal healing and regeneration of cells and tissue. (Cheng)
Microcurrent uses a direct current that travels in a waveform. It is a current with extremely low amperage that operates optimally below the threshold of pain. It is operable only between 1 and 1000 micro-amps. It is completely normal for people to feel next to nothing during microcurrent treatments.
The technician directs the current with probes. Microcurrent is utilized worldwide to facilitate and promote healing, regenerate epithelial tissue, and rejuvenate muscle tissue. (Alvarez)
What does all this mean for you in terms of antiaging??
In the esthetics arena microcurrent is primarily utilized to treat serious demands and indications such as muscle lifting and toning, skin firming, acne, pigmentation, scars, pre and post-op healing, cellulite treatments, product ionization, and lymphatic drainage of the face and body. It is a popular non-invasive technology, which gives the client freedom to attain antiaging goals without the recovery and downtime of surgeries and other aggressive treatments.
Contraindications for microcurrent use include chronic illness, pacemakers, pregnancy, epilepsy, thrombosis, phlebitis, and cancer. It also is advised to wait 3 months if you have had restalyn treatments.
Microcurrent technology provides a re-education to muscles. Clinicians can tone and lift muscles on the face or body with microcurrent by using lengthening and shortening techniques. This is achieved by targeting the origin and insertion points of the muscles.
"Eleven Lines" and Sagging Cheek Muscles
A lengthening technique is typically used on a contractile muscle, such as the corrugator muscle located between the eyebrows. The clinician is able to manipulate the corrugator muscle with microcurrent in order to relax and re-educate it. As a result, the deep creases that can appear between the brows are significantly diminished. The same re-educative principles are used for shortening techniques. The masseter muscle, also known as the cheek, is prone to elongate, commonly referred to as elastosis. To combat elastosis, microcurrent is used from the origin and insertion points to shorten the muscle and re-educate it to stay tone and tight, thereby reversing the effects of aging.
Who is a good candidate?
Microcurrent technology offers a concept that is preventative for younger clients and rejuvenating for mature clients. Mature clients usually experience dramatic results that are almost always immediate and continue to improve and sustain with repetitive treatments. A standard treatment course would ideally consist of 10 - 20 treatments over a period of 5 to 10 weeks and a maintenance treatment every month to retain the improved muscle tone.
With the addition of professional grade creams that are used, your results are even better.

What is LED?
LED is a non-invasive approach to working with light. During the past 10 years, independent worldwide research from organizations such as NASA has shown that light applied in the correct wavelength stimulates inter-cellular communication resulting in skin rejuvenation. LED red and near-infrared light are wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep. Red and near-infrared have beneficial effects on cells by “kick-starting” them into immediately creating more ATP (cellular energy) and increasing DNA and RNA activity. This effect has been carefully studied in many published reports since 1987.
IS IT SAFE?
Not only is LED effective, but it also has the added benefit of being painless and relaxing, with no recovery time required. LED can also be done on all skin types, regardless of ethnicity. It remains cool and comfortable for the client because it uses spectral light instead of heat to activate the skin’s own biochemical healing processes.
LED benefits tired, aging skin: it helps with the softening of lines, folds and wrinkles, healthier circulation, increased moisture and radiance, accelerated skin repair, improved elasticity and skin texture, as well as stimulating the collagen process.
Hyperpigmentation : Age spots, freckles, uneven pigmentation due to sun exposure. Most cases of skin hyperpigmentation even out over time from the use of LED light therapy.
Acne and blemishes: Infrared LED light can assist in the repair of acne and blemishes because it stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, and helps to kill bacteria caused by Acne.
Frequency: The number of treatments needed varies by skin type and condition. Maintenance is highly recommended to ensure lasting results.
Red LED Light
Red LED Light, featured on Dr. Oz and one of Hollywood’s top beauty secrets, has the ability to reach down into all the layers of the skin where it rejuvenates, stimulates collagen production, prompts cellular repair, and increases circulation promoting a more vibrant and youthful complexion. Red LED lights work synergistically to deliver optimal skin rejuvenation. This combination of LED lights is ideal for deeper lines and wrinkles, scarring, promoting a more even skin tone, and burning fat.
Yellow LED Light
Yellow light reduces the appearance of redness, swelling, and inflammation. This color of light is beneficial for Rosacea and treating burns such as sunburns. Also stimulates the production of red blood cells in the skin and is effective in treating abnormal pigmentation (hypo and hyper), improving lymphatic function, and stimulating circulation.
Green LED Light
Green light is absorbed into the skin where it has a calming effect. It helps to lighten hyper-pigmentation spots revealing a brighter complexion. The calming effect also has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the surface of the skin. Green LED Therapy is used to treat dilated capillaries, sagging skin around the eyes, under eye circles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots, even sagging breasts.
Blue LED Light
Blue LED light has been proven to have powerful anti-bacterial properties that have the ability to kill the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes. It prevents and treats acne. Blue light also helps to purify the skin, stabilize oil glands, and sooth inflammation.
Purple LED Light
Purple LED light therapy increases cell regeneration. It decreases the telomeres of DNA in the cell to essentially bring it back to a stem cell-like (brand new cell) state so that it can divide and create new cells.
Cyan LED Light
Cyan LED light is effective as an anti-inflammatory agent for the skin. Cyan light can be used in conjunction with any other skin treatments as a soothing, calming, and healing treatment to promote healing and fortify other treatments. This color also reduces the size of swollen capillaries.
White LED Light
White LED light includes all the other wavelengths at a lower intensity. It has been shown that white LED therapy has numerous benefits. White LED therapy has been proven effective in treating wounds, acne, rosacea, wrinkles, abnormal pigmentation, sagging skin, dilated capillaries, and regulating mood and well being.
Light therapy offers a powerful yet gentle means for obtaining more beautiful skin. It gives you the opportunity to treat an array of skin concerns without chemicals, drugs, or invasive measures. The skin responds quickly and very positively to the different colors in the spectrum.
