Perth Clinic Banks on This Celebrity-Approved Microcurrent Technology

In recent years, researchers have considered the role microcurrent technology plays on the human body, including its impacts on the skin.

It’s been documented that the application of microcurrent technology on the skin can increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels responsible for the skin’s inflammatory response generated at the site of injury. Thus, such a response is said to help in the skin’s healing and scar-forming process.

Popular Perth skin clinic, The Skin Collective, recognises the power of microcurrent technology to support a range of skin conditions. The Skin Collective’s approach to the skin is holistic, opting to partner invasive services like cosmetic injectables with a menu of treatments designed to place clients on a path toward achieving radiant skin “as unique as you are,” a press release on the business reads.

In light of this mission, The Skin Collective founder and owner Sara Lavis has recently invested in the MyoLift MD – a professional-use facial lifting and toning device. Her clinic is one of few in Australia to host the technology, which is designed to assist with cellular rejuvenation, facial toning, muscle re-education, and wrinkle reduction.

It’s a treatment NYC-based celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas and aesthetic swears by, counting the likes of Julianne Moore as a microcurrent convert.

Professional Beauty caught up with Sara Lavis to learn more on the treatment:

What makes massage using microcurrent technology more effective than hand massage alone?

“Of course hand massage has its place for relaxing the client and their facial muscles, however a true microcurrent does a lot more and can be still used in conjunction with touch techniques such as buccal massage. Microcurrent increases the production of ATP levels, allowing the body to induce increased tissue healing (decrease inflammation, oedema and swelling, and increase physical endurance).

Furthermore, it assists the Golgi Tendon to release the tension on the muscles that are attached to the skin to soften fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.”

What makes the MyoLift MD device stand out against its market competitors?

“The MyoLift MD is a professional/clinical-only device with a microamp range of between 175-800, which defines it as a true microcurrent. A true microcurrent does not show muscle contraction, as this stifles the benefits and therefore has no positive action of the skin or muscles. True microcurrent stimulates chemical reactions in the body to repair and heal at the cellular level such as ATP, lymph flow, collagen and elastin production. The MyoLift MD device conducts a microcurrent microamp range that is the same current the body produces on its own. 

This device has unique waveforms that are controlled by the practitioner (which can be switched on and off for bespoke treatments) to stimulate lymphatic circulation, lymphatic drainage, reprogram muscles to lengthen, firm loose tissue, assist in reducing the appearance of deep dermal wrinkles, refine texture and allow ionised substances of collagen and elastin to pass into the epidermis. This is in addition to other microcurrent device waveforms that reprogram muscles into a relaxed state, improving skin tone.”

Is MyoLift set to serve as a stand-alone treatment, or can it be combined with other skin treatments in-clinic?

“At The Skin Collective, we love to combine treatments to ensure the client is getting the most out of every visit. All of our treatments and plans are bespoke, as no two individuals are the same and we are driven by the science of skin. 

The MyoLift MD can be a stand alone treatment or combined with other modalities, such as, Neolifting techniques, Dermaplaning, Ultrasound, LED and/or clinical peels. This device is used by celebrity aesthetician, Joanna Vargas and Dr Barbara Sturm for red carpet event ready skin, as well as to promote long term skin health.”
