Anti aging center uses Microcurrent to treat aging skin

Baby boomers concerned about those inevitable lines and wrinkles that come with age now have another local treatment option.

Sharon Hladik, a licensed esthetician, has opened The Anti-Aging Skin Clinique at 40 Woodstock Avenue.

Unlike Botox treatments that require needle injections, Hladik offers non-invasive, alternative treatments to help reduce signs of aging.

Hladik uses various natural methods for body cleansing or detoxification, which includes the removal of stored toxic products from the blood, bowel, liver, kidneys and a significant amount stored in body fat.

The non-evasive treatment starts with what’s called micro-current therapy. Hladik said it’s a natural treatment that involves the delivery of micro current to the face and body using conducting wands that are applied to acupuncture points.

She said the method eliminates toxins in the skin, helping to speed cellular metabolism and increase the body chemical that fuels cells by as much as 500 percent and reconstituting the two major proteins in the skin, collagen and elastin.

Hladik said that her treatment is especially desirable for people who want to avoid the evasive procedure that accompanies Botox treatments. But unlike botox, she said her micro-current treatment isn’t a quick fix. “It’s just that it takes longer over time but is safe and effective,” said Hladik, a graduate of the Artistic Academy of Hair & Aesthetics in Morris Plains, N.J.

She said her clients typically undergo 10 to 15 weekly sessions. That’s followed by booster sessions every six to eight weeks.

Clients also have to do their part through diet and exercise, she said.

Hladik said most of her clients are part of the baby boom generation, those born between 1946 and 1964.

“Men and women are concerned about their looks,” she said. “We live in a very vain world.”

The Anti-Aging Skin Clinque offers a foot cleanse with micro-current ionic stimulation. It’s a half-hour foot bath that helps release toxins from the body. Hladik also provides nutritional assessments, facials, body waxing, eyelash and brow tinting, massage and reflexology.

Fat burning Microcurrent used in weight loss

With the holidays quickly approaching, some of us may be thinking of ways to look great for social gatherings that may come up.  For women there’s Spanks, Shape FX and many other body contouring items to help us look great in our clothing.

Unfortunately there’s nothing really for men.  But that can possibly change. 

This 26-year-old juggles being a wife, mom, and full-time college student.  On the brink of a new career, she’s taking on an attempt at a new body transformation.

“I’ve considered plastic surgery in the past but didn’t know when I could ever have it done.”

But what she’s on the verge of trying is different.  You see the Transformation Clinic claims to melt away your fat anywhere on your body, from the knees up.  It requires no downtime due to the use of micro-current technology.

How does it work?

Don Shanklin of the Transformation Clinic said, “The first part of the procedure is to liquefy the fat and the contents go thru a cell wall of the body.  Then you excrete it through the natural process.”

The second part of the session tones muscle.  And after one hour doctors say it’s almost like you just left the gym.

“You’ll have done the equivalent of 1000 sit ups.”

What about pain and discomfort?  It varies among the sexes.

“He didn’t like the first part.  I think with women being the ones to bear the babies we can take the pain,” said specialist Linda Shanklin.

“It wasn’t painful,” said this male client.

And after nine sessions of body contouring the results, “Girlfriend, you have lost 17 and a half inches.  Oh my gosh.”

The client lost eight inches off her upper waist, nine around her waist and a half of an inch around her lower.

“I’m very happy with it.  I don’t have the rectangle body.  I have an hour glass.  I can tell there is a major difference.”

She did reshape her body, but only lost five pounds.  What’s more important?  You decide.
