Tracing back, the micro-current sensation is nothing new. Electricity has been used by healers since antiquity. Innovative Greek physicians used local application of live electric eels to produce pain relief and stimulate the healing process. Micro current is a gentle electrical stimulation which mimics the bio-electrical impulses used by the human brain and is, therefore, able to stimulate the healing process positively and without side effects, in other words we are speaking to the body in its own language.
Non surgical facelifting is completely safe due to the low current used, and is virtually sub sensory, so the client feels very light sensation, if anything. It increases fibroblastic activity, the fibroblast cells produce collagen, and therefore the skins collagens production is increased. The skin is rehydrated and becomes more moisture retentive; the skin takes on a wonderful glow.
It is safe to use in the eye area, where lines and wrinkles are often a problem and concern of the client. This micro current treatment also increases protein synthesis, and because muscles are made largely of protein, the muscle is plumped up and rejuvenated. Elastin is also a protein and the production of it is increased therefore the skins appearance is improved and refined and lines are softened. A half face free trial is offered at Adonia Beauty in York, so you can see for yourself how dramatic the effects of this treatment really are. A one off treatment is great to give yourself a quick fix and a wonderful glow for a special occasion. For longer lasting effects a course of 10-12 is recommended, twice weekly, then an occasional top up treatment once a month for effective lasting results.
