Micro-current Treatments

Micro-current Treatments

Cosmetic Micro-current uses a low voltage stimuli strategically applied to the surface of the skin with specifically designed facial or body wands. The therapy is designed to stimulate and exercise the muscles and supporting connective tissues of the skin. Micro-current has been in use since the 20th century, to heal wounds and aid in the regeneration of skin, muscle and bone. Quoting the Journal of the Advancement of Medicine, Micro-current stimulation works, because it stimulates cellular growth and revitalizes the physiology of cells.

The Nouveau Clinic uses both “Static and Oscillating” Micro-current

a woman about to receive micro-current cosmetic treatmentStatic Micro- current therapy, means the applied electro-impulses will not vary dramatically in intensity during the course of an individual treatment, and it gently “re-educates” the muscles. Imagine taking a walk, but not varying the pace or speed at which you walk.  This is “Light Exercise”. The muscles receive a continuous but gentle stimulation, and they tone and tighten over time.
To build on the lifting and toning process as the muscles increase in strength, you need to increase the intensity or duration of your workout.

To increase your results, or for “heavier lifting”, we would recommend adding Oscillating Micro-current treatments. As the muscles tone, they require more stimulation to continue lifting. Adding an oscillating micro-current treatment means we are increasing the strength, duration or intensity of the micro-current portion of the therapy. Think “interval training or an advanced workout routine. Oscillating Micro-current therapy can be used as a stand alone rejuvenation treatment or added to any non-invasive rejuvenation protocol to boost or supercharge your rejuvenation results.

Other benefits of Micro-current Treatments

Micro-current treatments can be layered with a variety of other non-invasive anti-aging treatments, to increase skin hydration, toning, lifting and metabolic processes.

Micro-current as an energy therapy, can also be used to reduce joint and muscle pain, and has been used more recently in the management of many chronic and debilitating eye diseases such as Glaucoma, Retinitis Pigmentosa and wet or dry Macular Degeneration.  It is believed that Micro-current relieves ocular pressure and stimulates circulation by gently stimulating the acupressure points around the eye area and at the temples.
