Non-Surgical Facelift: Experience the Anika Skincare Micro current Facial
Non-Surgical Facelift Micro current is known to be the most effective non-surgical method to take years off the face. Treatments take the efficacy of micro current to a new level by pairing with advanced clinical non-toxic skin care products, this combination provides dramatic results and is incredibly relaxing. Since micro current is sub-sensory it is so stress releasing, most clients fall asleep during treatments.
Micro current is a low level of electricity that mirrors the body‘s own natural electrical currents, triggering chemical reactions at a cellular level to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin, provide circulatory benefits, and re-educate the muscles of the face.
The result is immediate firming, smoothing, and re-hydration of the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Micro current lifts, sculpts and tightens, provides immediate results, and has no downtime.
How does micro current work?
Non-Surgical Facelift we first need to understand what causes our facial skin to wrinkle and sag. As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to get stuck in these positions. A great example of this is the furrow between the eyebrows that many people get. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. An example of this can often be seen around our jaw lines, chins and necks where we tend to develop sagging or loss of definition as we get older. As we age, skin cells become less active, which leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin. By the age of 45, the upper cheek muscles may elongate by as much as half an inch, dragging the skin over the cheeks downward to form plump little pouches at the corners of the mouth. The muscles under the chin become loose and the jaw line loses its firm contour.
There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the micro current facial treatment. The treatment lifts, smooths, tightens and tones. Probes are used to physically move the muscle into the desired position to perform muscle re-education – the process of lengthening or shortening muscles. Having muscle re-education movements performed in a series re-trains the muscles to maintain this new contour. Micro current treatment allows the muscles the necessary energy to keep their tension in this new contour.
Non-Surgical Facelift since you are re-educating the muscle tissue, it is crucial that you receive a series of treatments for results to reach their maximum potential. Once a series is completed, the results can be maintained by coming in every 4-8 weeks for maintenance treatments. Additionally, a series can be repeated every few years. If the full series of treatments is completed and maintenance sessions are continued on a monthly basis, results should last 3-4 years.

Non-Surgical Facelift The number of sessions depends on the client age and skin condition. The effects of micro current are immediate and cumulative. Clients go through a series of treatments followed by regular maintenance to keep a more youthful appearance. Each time a treatment is performed the new contour maintains its position better and longer. Typically clients will notice about 5 year reduction in facial aging.
The following are general and approximate guidelines for frequency of treatment:
