After almost a year of research we have purchased an FDA approved micro-current machine that we feel is worthy of representing Olga Lorencin's standards. The machine is the Neurotris SX 3500 Series, the most sophisticated medical grade re-sculpting device out there.
With 16 channels of frequency, this re-sculpting device communicates directly with the muscles via neurological pathways. This face sculpting system targets communication on a cellular level in order to painlessly and effortlessly perform non-surgical facelifts.
This non-surgical re-sculpting procedure is recommended for anyone interested in firming and lifting saggy facial muscles, and is also highly recommended for Botox users or anytime muscle atrophy is noticed.
"On a muscular level, the micro-current acts like a personal trainer to tone and shorten muscle fibers," Dr. Peter Pugliese, the skin physiologist, notes. "On a dermal level, there is serious anti-aging action going on."
Pugliese has spent more than five years analyzing micro-current's effect on fibroblasts by biopsying skin before and in between microcurrent treatments, and has found a statistically significant increase not only in the production of collagen and elastin, the skin's main structural proteins, which degrade with age, but in that of glycosaminoglycans or "GAGs," the viscous material in which the proteins are embedded. "When you see a nice plump cheek like a baby's and you pinch it and it feels very good and snappy," he says, "that's GAGs."
And, according to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, the long-term benefits are more than skin-deep: "If you have a micro-stimulation machine, you don't have to have perfect genes," Perricone says. "When I first started working with celebrities, I assumed they were genetically gifted and had perfect symmetry." But now he knows that symmetry can be made: "Not only can we use electrostimulation to increase our muscle mass, we can accentuate one side of the face by working it harder than the other, to give a more symmetrical appearance."Read more in "Botox's New Best Friend," by Sarah Bernard, ELLE Magazine - Oct 2011.
