What Is Micro-current And Why Is It So Popular?

Micro-current is a popular new facial treatment that offers an immediate and visible lifting and rejuvenating effect on the face. These effects are temporary, but increase with repeated treatments, both in the cumulative lifting effect, and the longevity of that effect. Micro-current uses low-voltage electricity to stimulate muscles, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) cell growth, and collagen development in the dermis of the face. Micro-current rapidly restores cell energy, working at a cellular level that mimics the body’s natural healing processes.

This is, by far, one of my favorite skin care treatments. This FDA approved, non-invasive facial device will stimulate your facial muscles for an immediate, natural looking lift. Micro-current will help tighten and smooth the muscles and connective tissues in the face by increasing cellular activity, and has been shown to reduce wrinkles, and lift the skin.

Micro-current facial gives your faces a workout.

An eyebrow-raising beauty trend, called a micro-current facial, aims to do just that. The noninvasive treatment involves zapping your face with a tiny electrical current, hence micro-current, to stimulate, tone and tighten facial muscles. It is one of the most effective, non-invasive, ways to instantly turn back the clock. Micro-current will lift loose skin, tighten and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It accomplishes this miracle by doing 2 things; “depuff” the face by draining the fluid between the cells that tends to accumulate as we age, and toning the muscles of the face, which naturally tightens and smooths the face.

Treatments twice a week are recommended initially, optimally in a series of 15 sessions, thereafter monthly maintenance sessions will help you maintain the results. Remember that the effects are cumulative, you will see better results with each successive treatment, the results also last longer with each treatment. The pulsation created by the micro-current allows the cells to pump out the toxic material trapped inside them. Micro-current also increases the level of amino acids in injured and damaged cells, Amino Acids are the building blocks of life that the body utilizes for cell regeneration. This will accelerate cellular repair and rejuvenation tremendously. An increased level of ATP Adenosine Tri-Phosphate has also been documented. ATP is the 2nd most important component of the cell, after DNA.

Micro-current involves stimulating the tissues with tiny micro-amps of electric current, which mimic the current and frequency that naturally occur in the body, to support the cell’s own natural biological processes. These beneficial actions contribute to the rejuvenation of facial tissues. Studies have shown that aside from firming up facial muscles, micro-current has significant influence on other soft tissue systems, increasing the production of collagen and ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) within the cells, and promotes cellular exchange, it is particularly effective at promoting this cellular exchange in damaged or injured areas. The intended use of this device in esthetics is to provide the esthetician with a powerful and effective tool to aid in the battle against aging skin, by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thereby improving the texture and appearance of the skin, and by reducing the overall visual appearance of aging.

Welcome Autumn!

Welcome Autumn!

Less than two weeks ago we officially entered the Autumn season! A change in seasons also means a change in personal care routine. Fall is indeed one of my favorite times of year! The air is crisp and fresh, and there is a sense of new beginnings. But along with this season’s change also come changes with our complexions. Between the shift to dryer, dehydrating weather and stress from back-to-school/back-to-work adjustments, our skin and bodies are easily devitalized. This is why so many facial clients experience skin imbalances during autumn such as; dry patches, flakiness, and eczema flare ups. Luckily, there are many facial treatments available at DESUAR Spa that our skin can benefit from to autumn-proof our skin like our popular Renew Deep Cleansing Facial, the Hydrablue Plumping Moisturizing Facial or the Ocean Brightening Facial.

Combat Dry Skin with a Facial

DESUAR Spa is proud to offer highly effective dry skin therapy. Dry skin refers to the amount of oil we produce within the skin. Many people associate dryness with dehydration. However, if the oil levels within your skin are correct, the water content of the skin is almost always healthy. Here at DESUAR Spa we use the best marine-based natural products from PHYTOMER to give result oriented facials targeting the skin’s specific dryness condition. Our facials for dry skin will boost oil levels within the skin. PHYTOMER creamy milky cleansers are used to begin the process of softening the skin and increasing lipid levels.

I recommend using Phytomer Perfect Visage Gentle Cleansing Milk for its creamy, non-greasy milk that gently cleanses without disturbing the skin. Delicately removes makeup and surface impurities and provides moisture to the skin, which helps combat dryness. It is available for purchase online, or in-store.

Exfoliants such as lactic acid, glycolic acid, and enzymes help to slough off the upper, dry layers of the skin. This creates a smooth feel to the skin and increases the efficacy of the active ingredients applied afterward. Facial massage is a great tool for aiding in the uptake of serums and masks as well as lubricating the surface. Massage also activates the skin and encourages circulation. Lipid rich moisturizers help to create a healthy barrier for the skin.

Combat Fall Stresses with a Massage

Also, we understand how our body can generate stress, or gets stiff and numb from driving long hours during heavier rush-hour traffic due to higher traffic volume at the beginning of the Fall/Autumn season. And, for this we recommend either a deep tissue or Swedish massage that virtually melts stress away, relieves tension spots and increases circulation. Additionally, returning to our gym routine can make us sore and cause muscle pain all because the body is adjusting again. We can help your body recover faster from working out with our sport or deep tissue massage therapies that are designed to relieve severe tension and reach below the superficial muscles and enhance your workout performance.
