Microcurrent Tips

Tips to Improve Your Microcurrent

Regardless of whether you have a professional machine or an at-home device these tips will help you to achieving superior lasting results with Microcurrent.

  1. Cleanse and De-grease the skin. This is vital as oil will block the current, so if you leave any oily residue on the skin it will inhibit the current from actually travelling into the skin and muscles. I tend to double cleanse and follow with a toner. If you are a professional you can even perform desincrustation for a few minutes first, this will saponify sebum in the pores leading to better microcurrent penetration.
  2. Exfoliate. You can use a gentle Lactic Acid with enzymes or a lighter peel, my preference is Lactic Acid as its also hydrating. Do not perform strong peels as it can be irritating when currents are applied afterwards. Always bring the skin back to PH before you apply the current. Remember your skin is a resistor so removing some extra Stratum Corneum cells will reduce the resistance to the current and improve the electrical circuit.
  3. Cotton Tips. If you use probes with cotton tips then I highly recommend using a Saline solution instead of a gel. If you use a thick gel the current simply moves across the gel and not into the skin, it will always follow the path of least resistance (Ohms Law). You will get superior results with Saline and the minerals are wonderful for the skin, just keep a fresh bowl close to you so you can keep dipping your cotton tips into it and apply to the skin. If you use metal probes then you have to use a gel to get conductivity. Look for gels with Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Minerals and possibly Gold or Silver to enhance the electrolyte activity.
  4. Buy a quality machine. You can’t get a good true Microcurrent for £200. You just can’t. Expect to pay between £3000 – £6000 for a good professional machine. Always ask for the specifications as not all Microcurrent devices are created equal. It takes a lot of engineering expertise to create a pure electrical signal that is close to what our body generates to injury and healing. Please ask me for the Parameters of a good Microcurrent machine.
  5. Hydrate your skin cells and Fascia. The Hydration level of your skin cells and interstitial spaces will have an effect on the way the current can effect the cells and how far it can travel into the skin and muscles. Try to drink more pure water and take an omega supplement to help with internal hydration, I choose the Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas. Encourage your clients receiving microcurrent to implement this at least 3 months before they start a course of treatments. This ensures the best results possible. Fascia is highly conductive and can be sculpted but it needs to be hydrated in order to be effected by the currents.
  6. Training. Don’t always rely on the manufacturer of the machine you purchased. Do your own research, look at the facial muscles and learn the origin and insertion, where the Golgi Tendon Organ is and learn from some people who really know.

Nano Current Technology for Younger Looking Skin

Nano Current is a proven technology and is at the forefront of cell rejuvenation science. This sub-sensory electrical current is measured in a billionth of an amp, and much more in tune with the human bodies natural electrical frequency. Nano Currents will work between two points, Voltage – machine and Resistance – skin thickness.

What does Nano Current Technology do to our skin?

Externally applying Nano current Technology boosts ATP  (Adenosine Triphosphate) levels by up to 500%. The body has the capacity to store and build a reserve of ATP leading to more lasting results. Nano current stimulates ATP production within the cells and supercharges the rate of metabolism to previous levels of youth.

What is Adenosine Triphosphate?

ATP stores and transports chemical energy within the cells for metabolism, rather like the body’s energy “Batteries”. It provides the cell with energy to reproduce, repair, and function but as we age ATP becomes depleted. Re-charged ATP also stimulates Fibroblast cells to produce more proteins including collagen leading to better structure and improved toning and lift so the skin looks fresh. Another positive effect of this chemical reaction is more water so the cells appear more hydrated and plump.

Professional Nano Current Machines for skin treatments.

A-LIFT – I use this in my Nano Current lifting facial and have achieved fantastic results. This is the only machine in the world that automatically monitors, reprograms and adjusts its output frequency 16 times a second to mimic the client’s unique frequency. This machine also uses true Micro-Current Technology as well as patented Nano Current Technology.

PERFECTOR CCS7 –  uses Nano Currents and a lot of pre-programmed settings for lifting, detoxing and cleansing.

I have found one true Nano Current home device and that is the ZIIP by Facialist Melanie Simon. Available in the UK from Cultbeauty.com

If you’re serious about non-invasive skin treatments then you need to experience Nano Current to see how it can really make your skin look younger.
