As we age our skin and facial muscles undergo a number of structural changes. From the time we are in our mid-20s, we produce less and less collagen so that by our late 20s to mid-30s we begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles appearing around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. By the late 30s and mid-40s, we begin to notice the skin begins to sag around the eyelids, cheeks and jawline. By this time, the muscles under our skin begin to shrink and atrophy causing sagging of the skin.
Poor lifestyle habits, stress, skincare neglect, smoking, alcohol, high sugar diet and excess sun exposure accelerate ageing causing the symptoms to appear earlier. Taking care of your skin as early as possible will help delay the signs of ageing, and keep you looking youthful for longer.
If your skin is, however, showing the sins of the past, not all is lost. With the latest advancements in skin rejuvenation technology, you can potentially take years off the skin.
Radio Frequency For Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency has been used in the medical field to heat tissue and reduce pain for some time. Today it is more commonly used in the esthetics industry for skin tightening and facial rejuvenation. Radio Frequency is a type of current that generates heat in the deeper layers of the skin contracting collagen and tightening the skin. Excellent for lifting saggy eyelids, cheeks, the neck and jowls.

Microcurrent, the “Natural” Face Lift
Microcurrent was originally used by alternative practitioners to promote healing of wounds and tissue repair. A doctor treating his patients for Bell’s palsy paralysis noticed that after microcurrent therapy, patients had a smoother face and a more youthful appearance which inspired the practice of microcurrent within the beauty industry.
Microcurrent works with a very low current which gives the facial muscles a workout. This painless and relaxing treatment mirrors the body’s own energy current, for healing and repair. The current is so low it is below your perception. It is able to, however, “re-educate” the facial muscles assisting with strengthening, toning and firming of the facial contours. In addition, this facial workout stimulates collagen and elastin, improving skin tone and elasticity reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
