Microcurrent Facial at SkinProVancouver
What is Microcurrent?:
It is an extremely low-level of electricity that mirrors our body’s own natural electrical impulses. It acts as an external source of energy which the body can use to accelerate healthier looking skin. It also increases the “energy of life” in our cells by 300% to 500%. Another huge advantage is the increase in collagen by 14% in only 20 days of treatment.
In other words, not only do we energize sagging and lazy muscle groups, we improve the firmness and smoothness of the skin by stimulating collagen production. Areas of concern would normally include the neck, jaw line, cheek bones, frown between brows and the eye area.
IMPROVE YOUR SKIN'S OVERALL TEXTURE & QUALITY
Micro-BT combines ultrasonic peeling with patented microcurrent capabilities. Micro-BT works by creating high-speed oscillation of the flat peeling probe, which in turn leaves the skin smooth, fresh and perfectly prepared for product infusion.
Micro-BT exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry skin cells to improve your skin’s overall texture and quality. Micro-BT is not only an excellent maintenance treatment for normal skin, it is also a desirable option to treat acne and the signs of premature ageing. For acne sufferers, fortnightly to monthly treatments can put you back in control of your skin
Boost Product Performance, Remove Black Heads, & Blur Fine Lines
Using patented ultrasonic and microcurrent technology, our new microcurrent facial exfoliates, boosts product performance, visibly improves texture, and removes embedded sebum. More effective than fingertip application
We have 4 pre-programmed modes with high and low options:
Exfol Mode (Exfoliation)
The Exfol peeling function combines high speed (24,000 hz) ultrasonic vibration and a peeling probe to create a gentle cavitation-like effect within the skin tissue, effectively removing congestion to prime the skin for product penetration.
Serum Mode (Penetration)
After exfoliation has been achieved using ultrasonic waves, the Serum function uses microcurrent and ultrasonic technology to push applied serums deeper below the skin, maximizing their effectiveness for deep nourishment.
Cream Mode (Penetration)
After exfoliation has been achieved using ultrasonic waves, the Cream function uses microcurrent and ultrasonic technology to push applied creams deeper below the skin, maximizing their effectiveness for deep nourishment.
Clear (for acne)
The optional Clear function uses negative ionization to decongest pores, preparing the skin for topical applications. It pushes out black heads and debris for a truly purifying cleanse.
Quicker, more effective than fingertip application
Enhances product penetration
Smooths texture, evens tone
Removes black heads
Ultrasound / Ultrasonic frequency is measured in cycles per second or megahertz (MHz). Most skin care ultrasonic technology operates in a range of 18,000- 20,000 Hz cycles per second. The bt-micro® uses as much as 26,000 Hz.
The conversion of energy to ultrasonic occurs through a scientific principle called the piezoelectric effect. This is when an electrical charge is delivered to the crystals located within the device, create mechanical pressure and causing the crystals to vibrate and produce sound waves. This vibration is captured on the flat metal edge with rapid oscillations.
With ultrasonic technology, the rapid oscillations create what is called cavitation. Cavitation is when a water-soluble molecule is imploded onto the skin, which acts as a pressure washer for the skin. Additionally, cavitation creates a temporary separation of the stratum corneum from the stratum granulosum. This separation allows for more intercellular space for a product to penetrate into the skin.
Microcurrent is a low level of electrical current that mirrors the body’s own natural electrical impulses. Microcurrent can be used for a variety of purposes for the skin and has been found to increase collagen and elastin production. Additionally, microcurrent stimulates ATP (adenosine Triphosphate), which is the body’s bio catalysis for all cellular energy such as DNA replication, oxygenation/respiration to the cell, muscle movement and neurotransmission. Studies show that by using microcurrent we can increase ATP by 300% to 500%, which ultimately increases fibroblast activity, which in turn, increases other cellular processes such as glycosaminoglycans.
Additionally, microcurrent historically has outperformed other modalities for iontophoresis and desincrustation by working with the body’s own natural levels of electrical current. With Bio-Therapeutics’ proprietary levels of the current and frequency, we have found an increase of product penetration by as much as 65 % as compared to just applying product directly onto the skin, where we typically see between 10% and 15 % depending upon the product and delivery systems within the ingredients.
What does this mean when using the bt-micro®?
Ultrasonic helps to break up particles in the product for better penetration
Cavitation acts to exfoliate the skin
When ultrasonic and microcurrent are combined, we get a better delivery and absorption of product into the skin, as they work together for better penetration of water soluble product
Can be used on any skin type
Gentle enough to use everyday
Works with a variety of water soluble products
Award winning device range within the bt-GEAR® family
Excellent for value conscious clients
