What is Micro-current Facial Rejuvenation?
Micro-current Facial Rejuvenation is a type of skin tightening procedure that helps tighten and tone the skin, so as to bring back the suppleness of your skin. This is a treatment where a machine sends mild electrical impulses, of very low voltage but high frequency, through the skin. This has a two-pronged effect on the skin–it triggers cell production, thus, leading to the formation of new layers of skin which can replace the damaged ones on the surface. It also leads to the stimulation of collagen formation and remodeling, which helps to tighten the existing layers of skin.
How does Triawave® work?
The micro-current that is passed acts on the facial muscles and the superficial skin tissues. It stimulates the facial muscles by generating a slight amount of vibration. This is what helps tighten the muscles and overlying skin. It retrains your muscle, to an extent. It is claimed that when this therapy is used, it leads to the prevention of frown line formation and helps prevent the onset of signs of facial aging.
What are the benefits of Triawave® Micro-current facials?
Due to the mini-workout that is rendered to the facial muscles, micro-current therapy sculpting helps improve the tone of the facial muscles and also improves the facial muscles’ blood flow and collateral circulation. With the significant improvement in muscle tone, the skin looks tighter and supplier. Micro-current Facial Rejuvenation also leads to mild skin exfoliation and improves lymphatic drainage. This helps prevent the face from looking swollen and puffy with edema. Micro-current can also aid in lightening out scars and pigmentation marks that may be present, as there is mild skin exfoliation. This cosmetic treatment also helps tighten pores and lighten blemishes.
Is the procedure safe?
The system is completely safe and treatment is non-invasive. The current is extremely low, less than the output of a pacemaker. The system operates on a pre-programmed setting and contains calibrated internal data monitoring and resistance meters. This allows full comfort to you, the patient, as well as optimal performance and results for the operator. Micro-current treatments are usually performed within 45-60 minutes and are usually prescribed in a series of 6-12 treatments over a course of 60 days with one to two treatments a week being recommended for maximum results. The number of sessions in a series is specific to each client. Once the series is complete, a monthly“booster” treatment is required to maintain results.
Our non-invasive treatment usually offers noticeable results even after just one session and effectively gives you the benefit of a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. Although surgery is much more effective, not everyone is ready to make that decision. Like exercise for the other parts of the body, the facial muscles need a regular workout to achieve good muscle tone. Muscle re-education by micro-current is often referred to as “sculpting” and “lifting.
Individuals with any of the following conditions are NOT candidates for micro-current treatments:
Is the procedure painful?
This procedure is not painful. Some clients experience a slight tingling sensation during the session. Most find it very comforting, relaxing, soothing and often fall asleep.
How often must I have the procedure done?
The lifting and strengthening actions have an accumulative effect on the face with each systematic series of treatments, increasing the holding action of the muscles. Through repeated sessions, facial muscles will hold their tone. Just like the stomach muscles will “re-tone” after repeated sessions of sit-ups. During the initial program, we recommend one to two visits a week with the total number depending on the individual needs. A typical course of treatment will range from six to twelve sessions. And after that, a visit once a month is usually all that is required to maintain good facial muscle tone and youthful appearing skin.
What will happen to my face if I stop the sessions?
When you stop exercising the body, over a period of time, the muscles will lose their increased tone and return to a more flaccid state. The same is true for the face. It will not suddenly “fall,” but over time, it will begin to resume its normal aging process
How soon will I see results?
Most individuals will see immediate changes in facial contour after the first treatment. But the improvement is increasingly obvious over a period of time with a series of sessions.Results depend significantly on the individual’s age and lifestyle.
