This term refers to treatments promising to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and produce smoother skin using a high-frequency electrical current.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A cream or gel is placed on the face and then the therapist works the skin with two probes that transmit a tiny electrical current. The treatment lasts about an hour and 20 minutes, there is no pain but you may experience mild discomfort as the electricity flows through you. This is followed by lymph drainage and microdermabrasion; then blue and red light therapy is used to assist healing the skin. The final stage involves “a wrinkle comb” that uses a high frequency current. This is designed to plump the skin. Finally a face mask is applied and sealed with a micro current.
It will have an immediate effect of tighter and smoother skin. A course of treatments is advised, however, for full and prolonged benefits to be achieved.
It is, as the name suggests, non-invasive and painless. It tightens and smoothes skin. It stimulates collagen production so its effects should be ongoing.
You may be disappointed with the results if you expect the sme level of results as a surgical face lift.
