The studies by Dr. Emil Y. Chi, Ph.D. at the University of Washington’s department of pathology revealed that skin tissue treated with microcurrent showed a 45 % increase in the number of elastin fibers in the dermis and, the length of the fibers doubled.
Collagen thickness in the connective tissues increased 10 % protein synthesis by 70 %, and there was an increase in cellular transport by 40 %. Dr. Chi’s 2003 study further noted a 35 % increase in peripheral blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
In 1982, a study by Dr. N. Cheng conducted at the University of Louvain, Belgium concluded that when microcurrent levels were used up to 500 ma, skin regeneration increased by almost 500 %. Between 1000 and 5000 ma, adenosine triphosphate dropped down drastically, after 5000 ma, it dropped below baseline control levels. Revealing that cells respond at a lower level.
