WHAT IS A NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT?
For many years, celebrities – and those in the know about anti-aging – have been booking themselves in to clinics for a microcurrent treatment – more usually known as non-surgical facelift.
The use of electrodes to stimulate facial muscles is nothing new. The technology was originally developed to treat patients with facial palsy and used in sport to give intensive physio for injuries. Once the visible improvements in the tone and texture of the skin became apparent, microcurrent systems were also developed for the beauty industry. The technology has been thoroughly tested and results have been very impressive.
Clinical studies have shown that after twenty days of treatment collagen production increases by 14%, elastin increases by 48%, and blood circulation increases by 38%. All of which – it goes without saying – is great news for your skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VITALIFT™ ?
- Increases lymphatic drainage – which means reduced facial puffiness and eye bags
- Modifies muscle length resulting in firming of loose tissue
- Reduction of deeper wrinkles
- Reduction in size of pores, leading to improved skin tone
- Increased circulation of the upper and lower layers of connective tissue
- Brighter, more radiant, complexion.
- Softened scar tissue
- Age spots gradually fade.
Compared with facial cosmetic surgery a course of microcurrent treatments is great value. And you won’t need to spend the £400 all over again five years later!
Provided you stick with a maintenance schedule, your results will last – unlike facial cosmetic surgery or other types of non-surgical face lift, including Botox, which need to be repeated as improvements are lost over time.
Combine microcurrent with a peel or course of skin-needling and you are addressing all your skin’s needs, from both within and without.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
Most people need a course of around 10 microcurrent sessions to see the full benefits – although many see immediate results from the first treatment. The exact number you need will depend on your skin tissue and muscle tone – not necessarily on your age.
After the initial course of microcurrent, you only need to return for a booster treatment about every 4-6 weeks.
This is essential to maintain the renewed tone and lift.
