As people age, peripheral nerves may conduct impulses more slowly because the myelin sheaths around nerves degenerate. Myelin sheaths insulate nerves and speed conduction.
Age-related changes in function can become more noticeable when the nerves are injured by something else, for example, by diabetes.
The peripheral nervous system’s self-repair process occurs more slowly and incompletely with aging, making us more vulnerable to injury and disease.
Fortunately, successful repair through Microcurrent technology is already known for decades. Scientifically proven results have been amply documented in books, articles, and literature on the internet.
Three factors determine the speed of repair and the number of sessions.
The age of the person, as younger people respond quickly. Sometimes one session only can heal sports injuries. After the age of 50, a person requires a minimum of 4 sessions.
The type of nerve determines the speed of healing. Thick motor nerves to the muscles react slower than thin sensory nerves. Thick muscles require more sessions than thin muscles. Activating the neck muscle takes more sessions and energy than activating the eye contour.
The underlying health condition such as diabetes or poor lifestyle, will slow the healing process and increase the effort needed.
As a general rule, the number of sessions will increase with each of these three aggravating factors: age, type of nerve, and underlying disease.
The effect is noticed as quickly as after one session, or extended to 12 sessions in severe cases. On average 4 sessions will yield a visible result for most people.
More sessions, longer sessions, higher intensity, and longer pulse times, are effective means to deal with resistant cases or skipped sessions.
