Manhattan Beach Studio: Series of 10 Treatments: $1,250
Mobile: Series of 10 Treatments: $1,650Description: Often referred to as the “Natural” Facelift Microcurrent Therapy uses low-level electrical currents that mimic the body’s natural electrical current to help tone the muscles in the skin, as well as increase circulation to help achieve a more youthful appearance. The electric current works on adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to stimulate cellular activity. ATP is the basic source of energy that is synthesized from nutrients through the process of cellular respiration. Biological processes—including tissue repair, and collagen and elastin synthesis—are dependent on ATP. Two probes work simultaneously sending safe, painless low level electrical impulses to the muscles in your face and neck promoting collagen & elastin production via fibroblast stimulation. At the same time increasing protein synthesis, decreasing fine lines, wrinkles and tightening the skin laxity for a restored, more lifted, contoured and youthful appearance. The effect is cumulative — that is, your face will become more tightened and toned with each treatment. Microcurrent also uses this energy to stimulate muscles in a specific pattern. The idea is to retrain the muscles while strengthening them with repeated treatments. Cumulative services are needed to see lasting results, but results for skin-tightening are often seen. A series of 10 treatments done twice a week is recommended to start. The number of sessions depends on the condition of the skin and age of client. The effects of microcurrent are immediate and cumulative. Each time a treatment is performed the new contour maintains its position longer.
What to expect during your treatment:
Two-Step Deep Cleanse - I begin the facial by completely cleansing your face with a two-step deep cleanse which allows me to analyze and determine your skin type plus identify any current problems that you might be experiencing.
Exfoliate - After cleansing the skin I will use a specialized exfoliating product to prep the skin for the microcurrent session.
Micro-current - Here I use two handheld prongs that deliver precise dosages of energy to the skin and work simultaneously to repair and produce collagen in the deepest layer of the skin.
What to expect during your Up Keep:
*Micro-current Up Keep- Results are cumulative, to achieve the ultimate benefits, approximately 10 treatment sessions with in the first 5 weeks, followed by a regular maintenance schedule. Up Keep treatments can be added to any facial.
