So this isn’t a new concept around here – I love self care + skin care & wellness. I’m all about taking care of ourselves in a holistic manner, so when I heard celebrity esthetician Sadie Adams on the Balance Blonde podcast I was totally captivated by her. There is a magical quality about Sadie’s skincare approach, she is a scientist + healer. So I’m thrilled to have her guest post today and share her knowledge about mircocurrent facials.
Sadie is a natural esthetician, self care & skincare guru. She studied anatomy, Ayurveda, and yoga therapy which led her to create Take Care. Located in L.A. and NYC, Take Care is a wellness collective of esthetician an, meditation and movement facilitators focused on continued education, self-care and balanced living.
Sadie is known for using microcurrent technology and meditative energy to deliver anti-aging facials that will give you that glow-y fabulous look we all want. If you haven’t heard of microcurrent technology, don’t worry I hadn’t either. It’s a subtle electrical current developed for the purpose of regenerating tissue and tissue function. But let me leave it to the expert Sadie Adams to explain the 5 Reasons why mircocurrent facials can change your skin and overall wellness.
1. It increases ATP
By approximately 500 percent during the course of a treatment, flooding tissue with subcellular support and creating an environment that helps to clear stagnation and balance the fluids and membranes. This increases the cell membrane permeability and the health of the skin and tissue!
2. It works with, and stimulates the sub-circulatory channels, which run throughout the entire body.
Microcurent can balance and amplify the intelligence of vital junctures, where two or more tissues interface, as keys to subtle sub-circulatory systems.
Working with these systems offers immediate access the body as a whole. There are points on the surface of the body that can be used to detoxify tissue and as diagnostic tools, giving the practitioner insights about the client’s constitution and imbalance. Microcurrent can enhance the adaptogenic qualities of these points, stimulating the body’s biochemistry to produce exactly what one needs to strengthen (or pacify) and to heal – aligning body, mind and consciousness.
3. Measurable increase in natural collagen and elastin production.
Ones age, health, and self-care strategies (including the frequency of microcurrent application -professional and/or home treatments) will influence the percentage of increase over a given time period. Some reports boast 10-15% in collagen production and even up to a 50% increase in elastin production in just a few weeks time.
4. Product penetration, circulation, reduced acne, acne scaring and fine lines.
Research shows the having a reserve of ATP encourages collagen and elastin formation which can soften and intergrade scar tissue and mitigate inflammation discoloration, pigmentation and fine lines. Having such a reserve triggers lymphatic drainage and over time dramatically clarifies fluids and increases blood circulation.
Microcurrent supports the tissues ability to process information, including nutrients, increasing the efficacy of topical products. There is also a specific application of microcrrent that is used to drive products into deeper layers of skin.
5. Energy clearing and balancing tone
This delicate current is a simulation of the vibration of the human body. It galvanizes proprioception, helping the cells become aware of themselves and increasing the communication between the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones.
As an energy worker, I find that augmenting a treatment with microcurrent enhances coherency in the various layers of tissues as well as the peripheral and central nervous system. I feel that there is a lot possible, in terms of supporting the processing of stagnant energy and perceived trauma, depending of the intention and participation of the client
And that my friends is what I call mixing science AND healing energy to prevent aging. I mean what I’ve learned over the years is we have to be proactive people with our skin & health.
We can’t be waiting until we are 50 to start working on our skin, we have to start now. Obviously, a mircocurrent facial is on my skin to- do list. Until then I will just be using my at home high frequency machine which is a little different but still fantastic. Gosh, you guys I’m a huge fan of facial tools I think that should be my next post, leave me a comment if you would want to see a post solely about KILLER facial tools?
Thank you Sadie Adams for sharing your beautiful work with us, I hope we all can try a microcurrent facial in the near future!
Hope you enjoy! x
