Kinesthetic Facial Sculpting
Microcurrent is a safe, effective and non-invasive technology that has truly revolutionized professional skin care. By mirroring the body’s own natural low level electrical current, microcurrent technology is able to dramatically tone the facial contour, leaving the facial landscape visually lifted and the skin plump, hydrated and firm. Microcurrent is subsensory, which means it’s imperceptible, and makes for a comfortable and efficacious addition to nearly any service.
Studies show that microcurrent stimulates the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (Cheng, et al. 1982), the powerhouse that provides energy for key cellular functions, including protein synthesis which aides in collagen and elastin production.
The Microcurrent Pioneers for Nearly 50 Years
While Bio-Therapeutic leads the industry in a number of different skin care technologies, microcurrent is our heritage and where we got our start. It is the technology we have spent nearly fifty years painstakingly refining, and has served as the foundation of the brand’s legacy in the industry for forward thinking efficacy and unrelenting quality.
Bio-Therapeutic not only introduced microcurrent into the world of professional skin care nearly fifty years ago, but is the foremost expert in the space today and continues to set the standard of excellence. As a US FDA registered medical device manufacturer, Bio-Therapeutic designs and assembles all of its technology in its Seattle, Washington headquarters. We’re also ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified, were the first company in our class to achieve the coveted MDSAP status internationally, and ensure that all our of equipment is CE compliant for the highest level of safety.
The Importance of True Microcurrent
When it comes to electrical current and the skin, the “more is better” paradigm is clearly incorrect. Unfortunately, it’s a popular approach for some equipment suppliers because of the ability to achieve temporary, short-term results with low quality machines.
Unlike other technologies in the skin care arena, microcurrent is subsensory and invisible, so it is difficult for a skin therapist to visually evaluate. This is why it is absolutely critical to work with a manufacturer who has demonstrated long standing technological skill with the technology, and has established trust in maintaining exceptional quality standards, executes all aspects of engineering and manufacturing, and provides the robust training needed to get the most out of this transformative technology.
The human body is an extremely subtle electrical system, and haphazardly delivering large charges of electricity to the skin surface may cause gross muscle contractions, temporarily resulting in a tightened appearance. (For those of you who did dissection in high school biology, think of the electrical charge on the frog leg!). However, this approach ultimately fatigues the musculature and can lead to increase muscle laxity and loss of skin tone, exactly the opposite of the intended result.
By contrast, Bio-Therapeutic’s microcurrent technology is built on our proprietary and revolutionary Suzuki Sequencing platform that delivers proven and safe sophisticated sequencing patterns to elicit very precise results on the skin. By clinically understanding what frequencies are demonstrated most successful in achieving specific results, our proprietary programming offers a precisely targeted approach that optimizes the potential for each client, and allows for faster, more effective, and more consistent results than other forms of microcurrent. Our unique, pre-programmed technology take the guesswork out of delivering superb results consistently.
Furthermore, Bio-Therapeutic is the only company that delivers proprietary Suzuki Sequencing across two channels and four energy pathways simultaneously, ensuring superb coverage, and industry leading time efficiency for the service.
The Professional’s Technology Choice
Microcurrent, because it is both safe and subsensory, is ideal for most clients. It can be offered as a standalone service, offered as a series, and incorporated into your other facial services as an add-on.
There are, however, some contraindications for specific clients who should not undergo microcurrent. For a full list, ensure to consult the manual that will come with your Bio-Therapeutic microcurrent unit.
Do not use microcurrent on clients with the following conditions:
• Pacemaker or other implanted electronic devices
• Metal plates or pins in the
• Under a physician’s care for a disorder, illness, disease, or injury
