A microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulator or MENS (also microamperage electrical neuromuscular stimulator) is a device used to send weak electrical signals into the body. Such devices apply extremely small (less than 1 microampere) electrical currents to nerves using electrodes placed on the skin.
What does microcurrent do?
Answer: This low level of electrical current (500 microamperes) works in harmony with the body’s natural healing processes. At a cellular level, microcurrent stimulates activity in the cell to create massive amounts (a 500% increase) of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), known as the “energy of life”.
What is the galvanic current?
Chemical effects are also produced when a galvanic current is passed through the tissues and fluids of the body. The Galvanic Machine has two important functions during a facial treatment. Its main function is to introduce water soluble products into the skin, This process is called the iontophoresis.
What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry and is used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all.
It is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger looking appearance. The results can be so dramatic that microcurrent treatments are often referred to as the “5 Minute Facial-lift.”
Origin of Microcurrent Treatments
Microcurrent has been used with patients experiencing a form of nerve-paralysis, leading to atrophied, sagging facial muscles. The low-level current retrained their muscles, suggesting a new anti-aging application for the aesthetic industry.
How Does Microcurrent Work?
Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through the skin, tissues and down to the facial muscles. Microcurrent has been shown to stimulate ATP production, which drives the creation of key structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin.
This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles, similar to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies. Unlike anywhere else on the body, the facial muscles are directly connected to the skin, so the result of energizing the muscle is often an improved, lifted appearance.
The Food and drug administration has authorized
Microcurrent treatments for the following issues:
- To boost blood circulation
- To improve range of motion
- To diminish muscular spasm
- For neuro-muscular reeducation
- To circumvent or slow down muscle tissue atrophy
- For the management of calf (lower leg) venous thrombosis
It’s verified and established qualities as well as prospective range in application coming from injury healing , muscle rehab, and macular deterioration of the eye to lymphodema continue to benefit health professionals by means of remarkable outcomes
