KnutekMD's Dermacycle Machine is a non-thermal, light-based, skin care device used to activate the skin's natural rejuvenation process and repair damaged tissue. It utilizes Light Emitting Diodes (LED) to enhance and maintain treatment results while emitting less energy than a 40 watt light bulb. Simultaneously, the machine uses direct Microcurrent wave and square forms, ranging in frequency from 20-5000 hertz to induce a smooth tianic contraction in the muscle fibers to stimulate skin function and its circulatory system. The combination of gentle light energy and painless Microcurrent technology tones and lifts muscles, tightens skin, and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Microcurrent is a revolutionary therapy that dramatically increases the body's ability to heal and repair itself. It is a physical therapy modality that has been in use for over 16 years. Every function in the human body is electrically based. The electricity made inside your cells provides the power for your body. When Microcurrent is applied to the body at a specific frequency (speed), it can have positive effects on the condition of tissues and organs. Microcurrent from 10-320 ua mimics the natural electrical current in the body. These tiny Microcurrent impulses trigger chemical reactions at a cellular level to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin, provide circulatory benefits, and work directly on the nerves and muscle fibers. The result is visible firming and smoothing of the skin. Your body seems to use the Microcurrent energy to increase its own energy production. Microcurrent increases the production of ATP, your own chemical energy, by up to 500%.
The average person does not really need or want invasive facial procedures to minimize the signs of aging. Considering the expense, pain, downtime and risk of infection, scarring, and permanent injury. The Microcurrent Facial Sculpting (MFS) technique is a painless and low cost alternative for those wishing for the results of surgical cosmetic treatments without the risk of permanent damage. To quote D. Tsoklis, an expert on the subject, “Microcurrent is the reproduction of your own biological current. As we age, this current, which sends messages from the brain to the muscles via the spinal cord, does not send those messages properly.” Microcurrent treatments restore those messages from the brain to tell the skin to rejuvenate. It helps tone facial muscles by replicating our own biological currents. That is why this treatment is such a safe alternative to some of the invasive and risky treatments on the market today. KnutekMD's MFS treatment uses eight different wave forms of Microcurrent stimulating 32 of the 53 facial muscles using traditional acupuncture points on the face and body. Interestingly, this modality acts as a catalyst for repair at a faster rate than the delta wave frequency of sleep.
You will not experience any pain with Microcurrent but may feel a slight vibrating or tingling sensation. Some clients notice a difference after the first treatment. Other clients notice the toning and tightening after 3 or 4 weekly treatments. The important thing to realize is that the effect is cumulative — that is, your face will become more tightened and toned with each treatment. The treatments become more effective as you progress through a series of treatments. The length of the treatment series varies with each individual and depends largely on the condition of the face and skin when treatment begins. On average, most patients require 8 treatments to achieve good results. Individuals with greater aging effects, such as severe neck sagging, deep facial creases, or distinguished "crow's feet" at the brow may require up to 20 treatment sessions. For great results one session per week is recommended for at least 8 weeks and use of KnuteckMD's Dermacycling professional facial product regimens. When you reach your desired results, you can begin a maintenance program of having a treatment anywhere from 4-12 weeks apart depending on your unique body.
The benefits of a series of these treatments include:
- eliminating fine lines, creases and wrinkles;
- restoring the glow of youthful skin;
- visibly firming, contouring, and lifting the overall facial skin droop;
- tightening sagging jowls, double chins, and fatty cheeks; and
- increasing facial muscle density.
Microcurrent treatments have a long history of being safe, but it is not appropriate for everyone. If you are pregnant, have a history of epilepsy, heart disease, or high blood pressure, have a pacemaker, if you have been diagnosed with or suspect thyroid problems, or if you are taking medications known to cause photosensitive reactions, this treatment is not appropriate for you. Further, Microcurrent changes muscle tissue, softens scar tissue, and increases circulation with the effect of removing long-stored waste products as well as increases cellular metabolism so quickly that there is often a detoxification reaction after treatment. Some people have a similar reaction after a massage, but the reaction after Microcurrent may be stronger because so much is accomplished in such a short period of time. The possible side effects can include nausea, fatigue, and drowsiness which may start during or about 90 minutes after treatment and may last from 4 to 24 hours. There have been no lasting adverse reactions reported.
LED LIGHT THERAPY:
In the 1970s LED (Light Emitting Diode) therapy was discovered by NASA when plant growth exponentially increased when exposed to it. LED therapy is a non-invasive procedure that activates skin cells with non-thermal light energy. LED therapy converts light energy to metabolic energy within skin cells, like photosynthesis, which takes sunlight and converts it into food energy for plants.
Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150-200% faster when exposed to certain LED light wavelengths. Scientific and medical research plus many clinical and independent studies concluded that photo-dermatology significantly improves acne and the appearance of wrinkles, skin texture, enlarged pores, and pigmentation. KnutekMD's Dermacycle machine produces the NASA study's required level of energy that has been shown to stimulate fibroblasts causing an increase in collagen and elastin. Depending on color selection, the results can range from stimulating a healing response, destroying acne-causing bacteria or plumping fine lines. Adding a LED treatment is also a pain-free way to boost the effectiveness of other treatments and products.
Benefits of LED Therapy include:
- Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles;
- Aids in clearing acne lesions;
- Improves skin tone appearance;
- Regenerates/stimulates collagen;
- Restores skin's natural collagen activity;
- Activates fibroblast cells with create collagen and elastin;
- Increases circulation for healthier skin;
- Helps in reducing melanin production which improves appearance of irregular pigmentation;
- Reduces skin degradation; and
- Stimulates and activates metabolic function in skin cells.
Unlike Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and lasers that rely on thermal injuries to prompt the skin to repair itself, LED therapy is non-invasive, pure polarized narrow-band frequencies that are safer than natural light because they do not emit harmful UV rays. Unlike other anti-aging treatments, LED light therapy is gentle, painless, safe, and non-abrasive. there are no known reports of adverse reactions to LED therapy. No studies have been found showing any harmful effects to the eyes when using LED therapy correctly. However, eye shields are worn during LED therapy. There is no need for recovery time after LED Therapy, and makeup can be reapplied immediately after treatment.
KnutekMD's Microcurrent/LED Therapy Dermacycling Machine offers seven different LED colored lights with with following curative effects:
RED (650 nm): Promotes blood circulation and stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin to reduce lines and wrinkles, heals xerodermia, and exuviations of the skin;
BLUE (470 nm): Relaxes the skin and kills bacteria for treatment of acne and Rosacea;
GREEN (520 nm): Reduces discolorations including freckles, normalizes sebaceous glands, reduces blackheads and sores, and balances moisture levels;
ORANGE/AMBER (590 nm): Works to de-emphasize scarring;
PURPLE (400 nm): Accelerates skin renewal;
TURQUOISE (500 nm): Strengthens and calms the skin, releases stress and helps ease sunburn pain; and
WHITE: (400-700 nm): Helps the skin absorb nutrients and also has anti-aging effects.
