Alpha Stim® Electrotherapy Device
Most of us, if not all of us, will experience some form of anxiety, depression, or sleep disturbances at one point or another in our lives. While there is no shortage of medication on the market today to address any one of these conditions, there is also no shortage of potential side effects that come with them. That’s where the Alpha-Stim® electrotherapy device comes in. This cutting-edge device has shown success in alleviating symptoms of depression, anxiety and insomnia in the majority of people who use it, all without drugs. Many people praise this FDA-cleared device, which fits in the palm of your hand, for changing their lives for the better. Because of these amazing transformations in the people who use it, we’re thrilled to offer the Alpha-Stim at Transformative Dermatology.
Here’s how the Alpha-Stim works.
Mood conditions, like anxiety and depression, as well as insomnia are controlled by your body’s central nervous system, which is made up of billions of cells. These cells communicate every sensation through electrochemical signals to your brain. The Alpha-Stim works by transmitting a patented electrical waveform through earclip electrodes, using microcurrents (millionths of an ampere), to modulate the cells’ signals to return to baseline, normal functioning. The results are significant reduction of anxiety, depression, or insomnia without the need for medication.
What common conditions are treated with this technology?
Anxiety, depression, and insomnia are treatable with the Alpha-Stim. The device also has the capability to treat various forms of chronic pain, but that requires special probes, which we do not have available at Transformative Dermatology currently.
Who is a likely candidate?
Anyone suffering from anxiety, depression, or insomnia can benefit from this noninvasive, drug-free treatment. In fact, around 90% of people who use this device report improvement in their conditions. With that success rate, your chances of diminishing or eliminating your condition all together definitely look to be in your favor!
What can I expect before, during, and after the treatment?
Before each treatment, new electrode pads are to be applied to the earclips attached to the device. You’ll then saturate the pads with several drops of alpha conducting solution and apply them to each earlobe. You simply adjust the desired frequency that fits your condition and let the device relax you. The microcurrent is so gentle that most people don’t even feel it. You can read, work at a desk, or watch television during your treatment. Once you’re done, simply remove the earclips and go on about your day. There is no downtime.
How long does it take and how many treatments are typically recommended for best results?
Most people use the device anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, with 20 minutes being the benchmark. You can use the device as often as necessary. For most people, it is best to use the device between once a day and twice per week.
Are there any side effects with the treatment? Are there any risks involved?
Only minor side effects, such as headaches and skin irritation at electrode sites, have been reported by a small fraction of users. There are no lasting side effects, no risk of addiction, and no danger of interaction with medications. You should not drive or operate heavy machinery during a treatment session.
Let’s talk about the results I can expect.
Results are often immediate and long-lasting. Many people experience significant relief after only one treatment. If you continue use the Alpha-Stim, the effects can be even greater, increasing over time as cell function becomes more modulated.
How much does the Alpha-Stim cost?
Since the device does require a prescription, Dr. Jill will discuss your individual needs during your private consultation and determine if you would benefit from only a few sessions, or if it would be in your best interest to purchase a device for continuous use.
