There is a growing body of research supporting the reparative and restorative benefits of tiny electrical currents on the human body. Numerous scientific studies have been published in this extremely exciting field.
Why? The body has its own bioelectric system that researchers believe play a role in repairing damage caused by various factors — including UV and environmental exposure that leads to premature aging of the skin. By externally applying currents that mimic the body’s endogenous system, these researchers now believe they mimic the body’s electrical signals that trigger cells to repair, and a number of studies show important benefits in wound healing and tissue repair.
A meta-analysis of fifteen different scientific studies concluded that electrical stimulation accelerated wound healing by 144%. In other studies, the application of tiny currents stimulated an increase in adenine triphosphate (ATP), which in turn causes increased amino acid transport and protein synthesis — something extremely important for cell repair. Other researchers believe that externally applied microcurrents have an antioxidant effect.
This data explains why Circ-Cell REM Masque Serum is producing such dramatic results in improving the overall health and appearance of the skin. Tiny nano- and picocurrents mimic signals sent to cells during deep sleep, helping to restore a youthful, more radiant appearance.
I am seriously considering purchasing a microcurrent device to assist in firming and toning my aging skin. Do you sell a user friendly model of your ‘Perfector’. I know the value of these low-current electrical treatments, but my question is ‘do you think it is helpful’ to use such a device on my own, at home. I am also ordering your Circ-Cell Rem Masque-Serum.
If cost is of no concern, yes you could buy a Perfector for home use. Some of my clients have done this in the past…but to be honest it is a complicated technique and most of the time they end up hiring me to conduct the treatment for them. There may be used machines you can find on eBay but beware. The machines sold second hand are not warrantied by the distributor. The new Perfector machines are upwards of $28,000. If you can please let me know where you live, I will put you on my list (I visit several cities throughout the year during which I may be able to meet you in person).
REM is my way of offering my electrical treatments in a skincare product. I recently conducted a small consumer test, for Extra the television show, comparing real client results between 1 of my patent pending electrical treatments using a combination of 3 machines delivering nano and pico currents and 30 days use of REM masque serum (we will be posting these comparisons on this website directly). The results are very similar.
I would suggest starting with REM, then once you have reached 30 days use, revisit purchasing a professional machine. As of now there are not any handheld battery operated, for sale to consumer, devises I endorse. These electrical currents are not to be taken lightly. It is a fine line between electrical currents that can heal and protect the skin cell vs stronger direct currents that can actually harm the skin cells over time.
Vicky, thank you so much for this question.
