Micro Current
This treatment is often referred to as a 'Non surgical face lift'. It is a treatment that is designed to soften fine lines and wrinkles balancing and lifting your contours. It is applied in a course of treatments normally 2-3 a week for 10-12 treatments. The low current used has the ability to exercise your muscles with very little sensation to you, circulation is increased in the cell and all the natural processes are speeded up. This gives healthier cells in the skin and muscles producing a tighter contour and improved complexion. Once the course of treatments is complete a maintenance programme would be followed to hold the effect achieved, (ie; a monthly facial ). There are many of these treatments available with many different names, it is important to ask for all the details prior to treatment to ensure you are fully aware of the treatment regime.These facials have shown amazing results in the last 10 years and are now more sophisticated than ever.
