Micro-current Therapy was developed over 20 years ago and was originally a medical treatment to re-educate weakened facial muscles in stroke victims and those who have suffered Bells Palsy.
Micro-current has been adapted by the beauty industry to give therapists the ability to offer clients a course of treatments that would effectively tone and firm facial muscle fibre.
It is a safe and painless treatment procedure that rejuvenates the skin; giving the clients more healthy looking contours and making them look much younger. After just one treatment there will be a noticeable lift but, depending on the client’s individual skin tone and muscle resistance levels, results can often be very dramatic.
An initial consultation is required to assess individual body make up. Following this, the client should complete a course of ten treatments spread over a 3-4 week period, after which she will inevitably look “10 Years Younger”. To maintain this new lifted and toned appearance the client should then have one treatment per month to maintain their new youthful appearance.
The DermaCo Pro unit uses Micro-current to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface. The Micro-current emits a very tiny amount of electrical current that, applied to the skins surface, pushes through the dermal layers of the skin tissue and penetrates the muscles beneath.
When the current comes into contact with the muscle it re-educates the muscle fibres by using an intermittent electrical current (Faradic) that is biologically compatible with the body’s own natural electrical energy – sometimes referred to as “chi.” These muscle fibres contract and relax achieving an incredible end result leaving the client’s skin lifted and toned.
Because the application of Micro-current is sub-sensory there is no pain. Although some clients may feel a slight tingling sensation normally they will only feel the probes and the pressure of muscles being manipulated.
Here at Mariposa we offer a Non-surgical eye package and a Non-surgical Anti ageing hand treatment too.
