Used originally for healing of muscles and surrounding tissues, it became apparent that the visual effect of this treatment was the improvement of the body contours. It was also noted that this was happening quickly and comfortably to the patient.
The equipment has since been modified enabling therapists to use it in the Beauty industry. It has replaced the original muscle stimulation treatments (commonly known as Faradic) that although were effective, took longer to achieve goals and were limited in use. However, there is Microcurrent equipment that incorporates Faradic type current. This is the choice of each individual manufacturer.
Microcurrent offers quick results in lifting and contouring. Cellulite conditions will improve as the cells become healthier and waste products are eliminated. After a course of treatments, (normally recommended are courses of 10 or 12 treatments), a maintenance programme will be followed to carry on the effects achieved.
These treatments for body and face have shown amazing results and have revolutionised the Beauty Industry.
We only work on the areas that you want us to concentrate on. For women it is usually the tummy, waist, thighs and bum. For men it tends to be the waist and chest. We then place pads on these areas, which sends a current to the muscles to stimulate them. It works in the same way as exercise and you will actually see the muscles contract.
At the average intensity setting, the exercise value derived from a single treatment will be equivalent to: 1,000 push-ups; 1,000 full-squat jumps, 1,000 sit-ups; 1,000 scissor-leg lifts - all without any fatigue whatsoever.
This will vary depending on the manufacturer; however, on average a treatment is 20 - 30 minutes.
