A Lift Facial

by Aly Hazlewood on March 19, 2012

I was recently invited to try the the newest anti-ageing nano-current facial on the block, the A Lift at Karen Betts Clinic in Harley Street.

“Research has found that by externally applying currents that mimic your body’s own electrical frequency, your cells can be recharged, boosting your ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels – your cells’ energy source (think of it as your cells’ battery) and triggering the rejuvenation process in you. The A-Lift treatment uses revolutionary nano-current technology (electrical currents so small they are measured in millionths of an amp) that is adjusted to synchronize with the unique natural frequency of your body to begin combating ageing, essentially turning back time at a cellular level.”

I approached the clinic with great trepidation, because anything that promises dramatic results as the A Lift does and involves lasers tends to be painful. And I’m a big old scaredy cat. Perhaps it was growing up in the 70′s on a diet of James Bond and Star Wars where lasers are used to maim and kill, but the fear remains.

The therapist said she would do half of my face first so that I could see the results from just 20 minutes treatment. The poor woman must have seen me wincing as she approached my face with the probes because she immediately laughed and told me I needn’t worry, the treatment is not only pain free, but is in fact incredibly relaxing. Massive phew.

Sure enough, after 20 minutes of gentle probing (during which time I almost drifted off to sleep it was so soothing), I looked in the mirror and the left side of my face was noticeably, brighter and firmer. But the most dramatic effect was the lift in my eyebrow, it was much higher than the other one and my whole eye area looked toned and fresh. Impressive.

Fortunately for me she was kind enough to do the other side of my face to prevent me from having to board the tube with a lopsided expression. I can honestly say that I looked much much better after just one treatment. They recommend a course of 5-10 treatments depending on your age and skin concerns, but you can expect regeneration of collagen, reduction of wrinkles, skin firming and plumping.

My therapist said that I would really benefit from just 5 treatments because I still have fairly good skin elasticity for my age (another phew), and I think that I may just invest in this course of treatments as a means of staving off the onset of more invasive procedures such as Botox or dermal fillers. (Yes, I know, I’m all about natural and organic, why on earth am I considering Botox I hear you cry?…) more on that later…

This sounds fantastic, as soon as it arrives into Nottingham, I will be booking myself some sessions.

Aly you really don’t need Botox either…. you’re beautiful.

Ah thanks Emilie!

They already have this treatment up North, I remember the therapist talking about a salon up there. I’ll do some digging and will let you know where it is.

Anything not to use botox or fillers has to be worth trying.
The jury is out on how safe they are. Look what happened with breast implants!
