|In my continued search for Holistic Beauty products and services, I stumbled across the most incredible, life changing treatment! A treatment that has the power to completely reverse unwanted signs of aging (and more) while remaining true to the empowered and natural aging protocols I’ve been preaching about (i.e clean beauty, face yoga & massage, etc). I brought my services to Chadds Ford Endermologie; the studio offers Endermologie and Microcurrent (and now Custom Blending and Eyelash Extension by yours truly). I had no intention of trying Microcurrent much less adding it to my list of services, but when I was told this “natural, non-invasive procedure” could take inches off my stomach three weeks before I had to be in a bathing suit (right after the Holidays no less) I thought, what the heck, I’ll give it a try.|
|Over the course of three weeks I had eight treatments (two a week) and in combination with a strict no-carb diet and daily yoga (nothing intensive) I achieved results beyond my wildest dreams. I lost a total of 4.5 inches off my waist and 5 inches below my belly button IN THREE WEEKS! When I found out some of the celebs that never seem to age and only get more beautiful with time (Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock) are huge fans of Microcurrent, I was hooked. I needed to learn everything about it.|
What is Microcurrent?
|Microcurrent is a clinically tested therapy treatment, used for contouring, toning and firming. Also known as the “non-surgical face lift”, this safe and holistic modality helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness (bags), increases cellular activity AND tightens pores. When used on the body (abs, butt, arms, legs) Microcurrent sends energy deep into your muscles inducing contractions. For example, one ab treatment is like doing 400 crunches! After my first treatment I lost 1/2 an inch from my waist and an full inch and a half from below my belly button making Microcurrent the answer to your prayers if you need to lose an inch before getting into a dress for a big event! |
Microcurrent has been used since the 1980s and was originally approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator. The most profound microcurrent treatments were originally discovered with patients experiencing a form of nerve-paralysis, leading to atrophied, sagging facial muscles known as Bells Palsy. With the discovery of these low-level currents retraining the patient’s muscles, the FDA-approved-muscle-stimulation provided a new age-reversal application for the cosmetology industry.
How Does Microcurrent Work?
|Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle, low-voltage waves through the skin, tissues and down to the muscles (different currents for different parts of the body). Microcurrent has been shown to stimulate ATP production. ATP is known as Adenosine triphosphate which drives the creation of key structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, and is the biochemical way to store and use energy. This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles, similar to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies. Long term results are best seen in a series of treatments (cumulative effect).|
I believe Microcurrent combined with at-home clean beauty rituals (diet, exercise, sleep, water intake, clean products and facial yoga and massage) is THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!
