FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does our skin show aging?
Your skin is made up of three layers: The Epidermis, the Dermis, and the Subcutaneous Layer.
The Epidermis is the thin outer protective layer, and consists of epithelial tissue in where rows of cells resemble bricks in a wall, with new cells produced at the base.
The Dermis is just beneath and contains connective tissue, small blood vessels, sweat and oil glands, nerves, and cells that produce collagen, called fibroblasts. Two fibers, collagen and elastin, weave through the dermis, giving skin flexibility and firmness.
The Subcutaneous Layer is beneath the dermis and consists mainly of a type of connective tissue called adipose tissue. Adipose tissue is more commonly known as fat and it helps cushion the skin and provide protection from cold temperatures.
With aging, all skin cells begin to produce excess amounts of free radicals-unstable oxygen molecules that, under ideal circumstances, are removed by naturally occurring antioxidants within the skin's cells. In aging skin cells, antioxidants are in short supply. The free radicals generated are left unchecked and cause damage to cell membranes, proteins, and DNA. These free radicals eventually break down collagen, and release chemicals that cause inflammation in the skin. It is a combination of these cellular and molecular events that leads to skin aging and the formation of wrinkles.
In simple terms, as we get older, two components of our skin collagen and elastin degenerate, setting the stage for the appearance of wrinkles, creases, folds, and furrows. The breakdown of these components, accelerated by such things as exposure to UV rays, gravity, pollution, smoking, lack of exercise, and/or a consistently poor diet, results in the more visible signs of old age on our skin.
Years of facial expressions trigger small temporary folds in the skin to form where our muscles move; with age, depleting levels of collagen and loosening elastin fibers develop a memory of each crease. The Epidermis also becomes thinner and the connective tissue weaker. Combined with the lack of tone in aging facial muscles, the Epidermis begins to sag and droop, while natural folds become unnaturally pronounced by fatty cheeks, neck, and chin. Reduction of blood circulation and restriction of blood vessels lead to a loss in youthful hue and manifests in a dull grayish color to the face.
What is Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™?
Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ is a procedure that involves the delivery of Microcurrent into the face and body through specially designed conducting wands that are applied at specific acupuncture points. The experience is described as wonderfully relaxing and euphoric, causes no pain or swelling, and the age-defying results are remarkable.
Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ is a revolutionary technology that is exploding into the American anti-aging market merely four years after it was introduced. The technology is predicted to be mainstream in America by the end of 2008, having made its way here from Europe, where it has already achieved mainstream status. Celebrities in Hollywood have been the first to embrace it over the past two years, making it one of the most demanded cosmetic procedures in the weeks before the Academy Awards® ceremony both of those years.
Now more celebrities than ever are publicly confessing to being regular clients of this rising technology, including Goldie Hawn, Jamie-Lee Curtis, Mel Gibson, Liv Tyler, Meryl Streep, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kelly Ripa, Sandra Bullock, Susan Sarandon, Rene Zellweger, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jane Fonda, Kate Winslett, and many more.
With over 30 years in the industry, more than 10 of those years were spent developing Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™. Introduced into the American market four years ago, we continue to get twice the results in half the time compared to any other Microcurrent cosmetic technology in the world, and we are the only such technology to consistently achieve noticeable results on the first procedure, as well as the only company bold enough to guarantee age-defying results on all your clients or we will refund your original investment.
What results can I expect from Beautiful Image Facial Sculpting™?
If you already have signs of aging, you can expect to look younger once you complete your recommended program. Some respond better than others, but everyone with aging issues gets age-defying results. Factors that enhance your progress include a healthier diet, drinking lots of clean water daily, avoiding smoking and overexposure to UV rays, and exercising regularly.
Our technology is so effective, that you should see some noticeable results on your first session. Changes are gradual rather than drastic, and look more natural than other non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Ask one of your local certified professionals to show you some of the before/after photos of actual clients just like you. Some of the many benefits include:
* Diminishes or eliminates fine lines, creases, and wrinkles
* Hydrates and revitalizes skin, making it smoother and softer
* Improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage
* Rejuvenates the "pink glow" of youthful hues
* Visibly firms and contours, lifting the overall droop
* Tightens sagging jowls, doubling chins, and fatty cheeks
* Clears up or reduces acne
* Reduces the appearance of stretch marks & cellulite on the body
* Reduces scarring and dimpling from laser resurfacing
* Reduces dark circles or puffiness under eyes
* Reduces symptoms of Eczema, Melasma, and Rosacea.
While many cosmetic procedures such as skin resurfacing rely upon wounding the dermis to obtain results, the results from Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ are produced in a non-invasive and non-abrasive way that naturally stimulate the following regenerative properties within your body:
* 500% increase in ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the chemical fuel of human cells)
* 35% increase in blood circulation
* 40% increase in Gluconeogenesis (production of new glucose)
* 45% increase in the number of elastin fibers in the dermis
* 50% increase in the length of the elastin fibers
* 10% increase in collagen thickness in the connective tissue
* 35% increase in the number of blood vessels
* 28% increase lymphatic drainage
What is Microcurrent?
Not to be confused with Microwaves, Microcurrent is a form of electricity measured in one-millionth of an ampere (micro-amperes or µA ). It is the closest known electrical current that can be delivered that is nearly identical to the electrical current the human body naturally produces; it is therefore physiologic, safe, and free of harmful side effects.
Traditionally used for medical purposes for over 60 years, the cosmetic use of Microcurrent was discovered by accident when a physician used Microcurrent in an attempt to lift the paralysis of his Bell’s palsy patients. The paralysis was noticeably lifted, but he also noticed his patients were gradually looking younger, as facial wrinkles and creases reduced significantly. Microcurrent is still used to treat Bell’s Palsy patients to this day.
Microcurrent is as much as 1000 times less in strength than the electrical current used in a TENS unit and it is such a small strength of electrical current that it would take nearly 1 million of our Microcurrent devices to light up a 40-watt light bulb.
What results can I expect from Beautiful Image Body Sculpting™?
In the search for cosmetic offerings, no doubt you have found a vast array of services for your face, but try a simple search for effective body procedures and you will find few available. In fact, short of diet & exercise or going under the knife, there is really no alternative that can equal the results we have been able to obtain through Beautiful Image Body Sculpting™.
Using a modified application of the same sequential Microcurrent waveforms used for the face, we are able to lift and tone muscle areas of the body, reducing the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, dimples and wrinkles. Results can be felt immediately and the effect is similar to getting weeks of exercise with both cardio and free weights, as flabby sag begins to take shape on the legs and stomach, and the buttocks raise and tighten. It truly must be seen to be believed.
Like our facial results, Beautiful Image Body Sculpting™ is producing results that are years ahead of the few others who have attempted to delve into Microcurrent body sculpting. Originally thought to be a compliment to our facial technology, our body sculpting is actually equally, if not surpassing, the popularity and demand of our facial sculpting in our current test market analysis. Needless to say, we are excited by such surprising potential.
Currently available in limited markets, Beautiful Image Body Sculpting™ will officially be available throughout the United States and Canada in early 2007.
How does this differ from Mesotherapy Body Sculpting?
Mesotherapy is a technique, invented in 1952 that involves the injection of pharmaceuticals into the dermis. Although it has shown to be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite, it does nothing to smooth and tighten the skin that remains sagging from weight loss. It also does nothing to tighten, tone, and lift muscles—something even cosmetic surgery is unable to do. The results from Beautiful Image Body Sculpting™ are the closest to that of a full cardio/free weight exercise program as any cosmetic technology in existence, and are a perfect compliment to such fitness.
So how does Microcurrent produce cosmetic results?
As we age, our body loses much of its natural electrical energy, much like a battery gradually losing its charge. On a cellular level, this leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin, which leads to sagging and unevenness of texture; lines, wrinkles, and folds become the inevitable result. Beneath the skin, the facial muscles become increasingly contracted over years of facial expression and constant gravity, allowing the overall lift of our face to decline.
Microcurrent emits subtle electrical frequencies that mimic the body’s own electrical signals, thereby increasing the amount of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate, the chemical fuel of human cells) by as much as 500%. Such increased levels of ATP speed cellular metabolism; the result is a detoxification that increases the rate of waste and impurity elimination. Protein synthesis and cellular membrane transport are also increased, as well as the reconstitution of collagen and elastin. The results of these processes can be seen in improved skin tone and coloration, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the firming of sagging areas of the face and body.
The body is literally being recharged back to its more youthful electrical state, as though a draining battery were plugged into a charger. With each treatment, ATP levels are stockpiled or stored, which is why Microcurrent Facial Sculpting results are cumulative and become better as a series of treatments progress.
Is this the same thing as “Facial Toning”?
No. Facial toning involves a higher intensity which causes muscle contraction, literally a facial “workout”. Such procedures tend to be uncomfortable, even painful, and the results are negligible. True Microcurrent facial & body cosmetic procedures are “subsensory”, meaning they should not be felt or cause any muscle contraction, so be wary of anyone telling you otherwise.
What age range is this technology suited for?
Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ is recommended for adult clients of all ages, since it preserves and maintains the youthful elements of younger clients, postponing future aging issues, and restores youthfulness in older clients.
The Body Sculpting is quite popular with the 30+ consumer, since many of them first begin to experience body issues during this time, long before facial issues arise.
Is there any risk of harmful side effects, pain, or downtime from the procedure?
Microcurrent has been used on the human body by medical doctors for over 60 years without any reported harmful side effects. Described as a great escape from the worries of the day, Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ is relaxing and euphoric. There is no pain during or after the procedure, no redness or swelling, and no downtime required. You are ready to resume your day upon completion of each procedure.
Those who are pregnant or breast-feeding, experience epileptic seizures, or wear a pacemaker are not candidates for our technology. As with any cosmetic or exercise program, those who have experienced a major illness or surgery within the past year need approval from their physician before beginning a Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ program. When in doubt, we recommend you see your physician.
How many procedures do I need and how long do the results last?
The minimum recommended program involves 10 sessions, with two the first week and one per week thereafter. Ideal results are achieved with 15 sessions and may be the recommended protocol for those with more extensive aging issues. Your licensed Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ professional can customize your program after a free consultation and demonstration.
Your results will last as long as you continue to maintain them with booster sessions every 4-8 weeks. In the same way they would maintain highlights in their hair, you can now look and feel younger, without the expense and risk of surgery.
How much would I expect to pay for this procedure?
This remarkable age-defying breakthrough is easy on all types of budgets. Available pricing packages make procedures as affordable as a 1-hour massage; in fact, we challenge you to find a more cost-effective alternative available today that attains such effective results.
How is this any different than other Microcurrent cosmetic procedures?
Accept no substitute- Beautiful Image Facial & Body Sculpting™ gets twice the results in half the time due to our unique waveform. While other manufacturers use one Microcurrent waveform that is typically generic, rather than specific, our model cycles through 8 different waveforms that are specifically calculated for all ages, genders, and skin types. We spent over 10 years of engineering and clinical research just to create this waveform sequence, and we challenge you to put it side by side with any other manufacturer and compare the difference yourself!
