Electrical Implant Such As Pacemaker
This is because the electrical devices use an electrical current that keeps the devices working. Since 7E MyoLift™ also uses an electrical current, it can interfere with the electrical signal of a pacemaker or cochlear ear implant. This is an FDA requirement.
Because Epilepsy can be caused by abnormal electricity flow in neurons and cells of our bodies, we recommend you do not use microcurrent. This is an FDA requirement.
“Epilepsy is a chronic disorder, the hallmark of which is recurrent, unprovoked seizures” (Joseph I. Sirven MD, Patty Osborne Shafer RN, MN, 2014).”
If you have been diagnosed with an active form of cancer, it is not recommended you receive a microcurrent treatment. This is an FDA requirement.
As a precautionary measure, It is best not to use 7E MyoLift™ microcurrent treatments while pregnant.
If you have a heart condition, microcurrent should only be performed after consultation and approval by your physician. This is an FDA requirement.
If you or your client have Diabetes, microcurrent should only be performed after consultation and approval by your physician. This is an FDA requirement.
Recent Facial Surgery
We recommend 7E MyoLift™ treatment prior to any invasive procedure, like facial surgery, but it isn't recommended until you are healed. This is best as to not disrupt the healing process of the surgery. Stay in touch with your doctor and make sure they clear you for a microcurrent treatment before scheduling this treatment post-op. At that point, microcurrent facial treatments can be brought back into your skin care routine in tiny doses to avoid irritating the recently injured area of the skin.
