Alternatives to Cosmetic Surgery – ELR
Do you want youthful, glowing skin and a relaxed, energized body? Holistic Facial Rejuvenation using ELR(TM) (Energy Light Rejuvenation(TM)) can accomplish just that! ELR(TM) is a wonderful alternative to cosmetic surgery. While the results are not the same as a full face lift, it can turn back the hands of time with essentially no risk and no recovery time.
Created according to the principles of Chinese medicine, ELR(TM) works in harmony with the natural energy systems of the body. ELR(TM) combines microcurrent (gentle electrical stimulation) and therapeutic light and color to re-educate facial muscles and address the underlying reasons for of conspicuous aging.
This amazingly relaxing treatment will smooth fine lines, decrease deeper wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, lifting and toning the muscles and skin of your face. In addition it can also diminish dark spots, blemishes and breakouts and reduce puffiness.
Microcurrent has been used successfully since the 1960s by acupuncturists, chiropractors, physicians, physical therapists and other wellness professionals for pain management and the treatment of various health conditions. Microcurrent technology for aesthetic purposes, specifically to combat the results of aging, emerged in the 1980s. Microcurrent mirrors the body’s normal electrical impulses and increases cellular energy and functioning. In addition, microcurrent technology increases skin collagen production and multiplies the amount of skin fibroblasts, which are early cells that make connective tissue. What separates ELR(TM) from other microcurrent machines is its use of colored light, which makes it even more effective.
Energy Light Rejuvenation(TM) is performed using the VB1000 Esthetic Stimulator (aka the Acutron Mentor). Unlike some other machines that are out there, this is very comfortable – in fact it is more like receiving a relaxing spa treatment. And, unlike other facial treatments, as it incorporates stimulation of acupuncture points on the face, it is also affecting the whole body, making you look and feel rejuvenated.
You’ll likely feel and see the results of ELR(TM) after the first treatment. One session is unlikely to have long lasting results, however. A number of applications are required to re-educate the facial muscles and achieve rejuvenation of the face and energy systems. A complete series of treatment is generally 10 to 12 sessions, about 2 sessions a week. Up to 20 sessions may be required for older people with deeper wrinkles, loss of elasticity, sun worshipers or smokers. Booster treatments are required once every 1-2 months. A session takes approximately 60 minutes. Women and men in middle age are the perfect candidates, but younger people can also use it to retard facial aging or to treat acne.
People who should not have microcurrent are those with seizure disorders, pacemakers, cancer, and pregnancy. Side effects, which may occur during microcurrent procedures, include tingling, especially near the mouth.
