“Don’t you feel stoned?!” Allison Tray exclaimed as I exited the treatment room. It took me a second to respond–blinking a few times I felt my cheek with my knuckle. My delayed reaction said it all–she let out a laugh.
Allison isn’t a dispensary owner–in fact her business is legal in all 50 states. Her petite medispa, Tres Belle, in Brooklyn seeks out unique, non-invasive skin care treatments that yield serious results. She first heard about the Microcurrent Myolift treatment through her esthetician, Paula Genna, who had worked with the machine before in a medical setting. Once Allison tried the treatment herself, she was hooked.
The process does really send you into the ultimate state of zen. The first step is tapping into the subconscious– to achieve this a patch is adhered to your arm which emits negative frequency. Next comes ear clips, which provide an provide cranial electro-stimulation. After cleansing the skin with various botanical products, the esthetician runs a metal probe gently over your decole and face in upwards strokes. Because the computer is able to assess individuals’ cellular needs, it has profound effects in correcting and repairing cellular physiology. The technique is said to be so effective that the treatment increases ATP (adenosine triphosphate)–aka makes the facial muscles stronger by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
So–is it worth it? The price tag certainly isn’t cheap at $275 per treatment, however, the short term effects are great and long term, greater. Upon receiving the treatment you are sure to feel the “happy-high” Allison referred to. This is due to the immediate endorphin release that leaves you feeling invigorated and relaxed. Long term effects include inflammation reduction, pain relief, reshaping of facial structure and reduction of inflammation, fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. The treatment is ideal for older women 40+,, as it can dramatically reshape the face–from jawline to cheekbones, no Botox necessary. However, the treatment can also be beneficial to anyone who suffers from autoimmune diseases (such as psoriasis or rosacea) since it dramatically reduces inflammation.
As someone who has always suffered from eczema above my lip, I was eager to see the difference afterwards. My skin felt fully hydrated and had an incredible luminescence that remained with me for a week. Unfortunately, my eczema didn’t disappear on the first go–but it is definitely a treatment that I would keep up to maintain the anti-inflammatory benefits. We’d give this one an HBFit Approval.
