Microcurrent Therapy for scar tissue and post-surgical issues


The Ardnt-Shultz Law: Weak stimuli increases physiological activity and very strong stimuli inhibits or abolishes the activity.

In the 1830’s it was discovered by Carlos Matteuci that the electrical impulse in the body is disrupted by wounds. During World War II, the Japanese used microcurrent to support their wounded soldiers that we having issues with healing. The first commercial device was created in the 1960’s by Dr. Reinhold Voll.

Microcurrent used post-operatively to an incision area, the traumatized tissue as well as the surrounding area can decrease recovery time by deducting the inflammation, redness and irritation-inhibiting adhesions from developing causing negative long term effects. The use of microcurrent enhances the healing ability supporting the long term benefit of the surgical procedure. The new connective tissues layers are re-forming, particularly between the skin and underlying muscle tissue. The cells are receiving more nutrients across the cell membrane and the waste products are being releases more readily with microcurrent. The “weak stimuli increases physiological activity,” applies here.

Emil Y Chi, Ph.D, Director of the University of Washington Department of Pathology proved theta the renews, irritation and inflammation of surgically traumatize tissue could be decreased significantly when treated with microcurrent. The build-up of hardened collagen that makes up scar tissue was noted to be three to five times less in tissue treated with microcurrent. Another study of Chi’s with post-operative cancer patients noted lymphatic drainage increased by up to 28%. Dr. Burt Ensley, Ph.D, microbiologist was invoked in a regenerative tissue study underwritten by the U.S. Department of Defense, discovering the proprietary active ingredient elastatropin, helping wounded soldiers heal faster and promoted scarless healing. This product is called tropelastin, the precursor to eleastin ( which is naturally found in the body) replenishing the lost elastin. The topical human proteins previously were notoriously expensive to product and traditionally resulted in the molecules being too large and misshapen to actually penetrate deeply into skin. Microcurrent offers specific iontophoresis that allows superior, focused penetration of the water-based product into the tissue.

I look forward to working with the residents of Dripping Springs and the surrounding communities serving all ages.
