Frequently Asked Questions
Why does our skin show aging?

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. Scientists formerly thought that fibroblasts were little more than scaffolding on which more important cells would climb. But University of Rochester Medical Center scientists have discovered that certain fibroblasts have highly specialized duties and play a major role in how scars form, fat accumulates, and harmful inflammation arises in humans. They also appear to be metabolically active. 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 lines, wrinkles, and folds. The breakdown of these components, accelerated by such things as exposure to UV rays, gravity, pollution, smoking, lack of exercise, and a poor diet, results in the visible signs of aging 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 weakening 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 also play a part by reducing youthful skin color resulting in a dull grayish color to the face.

Imagine a technology for body aesthetics that achieves the following..

  • Spot treatment in specific body areas
  • Tightening of loose or wrinkled skin
  • Overall fat and cellulite reduction
  • Body shaping and muscle toning
  • Boosts metabolism and energy levels
  • Reduces scars, acne, and stretch marks
  • Contributes to improved muscle strength
  • Treatment of post-pregnancy body issues

Resulting in:

  • Firm and lifted buttocks
  • Shapely legs
  • Toned stomach
  • Sleeker arms

How soon does one see results?
Individuals may see some minor change after 3-4 sessions, and significant change only after 15 – 20 treatments.

Knutek Microcurrent/LED machine will produce noticeable changes on the first visit. Further changes will be even more effective and lasting as your muscle “memory” is achieved and sustained with more visits.

How many sessions are recommended for the full treatment and how often?
Most clients need 10-15 treatments for the face and 5-7 treatments for the body in order to achieve satisfying results. Clients need a minimum of 2 sessions their first week, then one per week thereafter, until treatment is complete. Those who are on a short timeline, such as an approaching wedding, may be treated twice per week. Once a client is satisfied with their progress, they reduce their visits to monthly maintenance in order to keep the results.

How long does each treatment last?
Each treatment is approximately 30 minutes.

How long do the results last?
The client’s investment is preserved as long as he or she is receiving maintenance treatments every 4-6 weeks. If maintenance treatments were to stop for longer than a month, there is a risk of gradually losing those results.
