Micro-current is defined by science as using less than 500 Ua (microamperes) which works in harmony with the body’s natural electrical system and encourages the body to function more effectively. Micro-current is amazing and can treat so many different aspects of ageing, It’s proven to encourage the circulation, natural collagen and elastin synthesis, ATP production, product penetration, and a more desirable facial contour.

An electo-stimulator sends a micro-current throught he skin and muscle via two hand held probes.

Here comes the technical bit
By increasing energy to the cell, this creates a younger healthier cell, which promotes a more youthful appearance. Micro-currents re-establish the proper polarity patterns of the body, relieving physiologic and psychological stress and act as a catalyst for repair at a faster rate than the delta wave frequency of sleep.
Studies have shown that skin tissue treated with micro-current shows a 45% increase in the number of elastin fibres within the dermis, a 10% increase in collagen thickness in the connective tissue and the number of blood vessels increased by 35%. All this combined produces a firmer and tighter feeling on the skin surface.
A course of ten to twelve treatments taken twice weekly, would normally be offered to achieve the desired result, thereafter a maintenance treatment every 4 weeks is recommended to maintain the results.
