Microcurrent FAQs

What are microcurrent anti-aging facial treatments?

A natural alternative to Botox and fillers, microcurrent facial treatments are a breakthrough technology and an effective anti-aging treatment which visibly smooths skin and lifts and tightens the muscles of the face and neck. This technically-advanced facial treatment stimulates muscle activity through sub sensory pulses which tone and strengthen more than 30 targeted facial muscles. The result is skin that is re hydrated, lifted, firmer, and a revitalized appearance achieved.

What are the benefits?

Hydrates and revitalizes skin, making it smoother and softer - Improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage - Reduces dark circles or puffiness under eyes - Rejuvenates the “pink glow” of youthful hues - Reduces sagging jowls and double chin - Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles - Visibly firms and contours - 15% increase in collagen - 40% increase in elastin - 500% increase in ATP

How soon will I see results?

Improvements can be quite dramatic and most clients will see immediate improvement in a single session. With a series, years are easily removed from the appearance of the skin as your facial muscle “memory” is achieved and sustained. This is achieved without any pain, thermal damage, or down time. And, because the changes are gradual rather than drastic, the results are much more natural than with other non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

Is this treatment safe?

Yes, this treatment is completely safe. There are no harmful side effects. Microcurrent has been used on the human body for over 60 years without any reported harmful side effects. Unlike laser treatments, there is no discomfort during or after the treatment, no redness or swelling, and no downtime required. This treatment is relaxing and euphoric, and you can resume your day immediately afterwards.

How many sessions are recommended for maximum lifting and how often?

Age, lifestyle, and skin condition will influence the number of treatments needed; however, we highly recommend a series to achieve maximum benefits. Ideally, clients should receive one treatment per week throughout their personalized recommended treatment-series protocol. After completing your series, results can be maintained with monthly maintenance treatments.

What should I expect during and after a treatment?

After an initial deep facial cleansing, there will be two phases of the microcurrent treatment: circulation and sculpting/lifting. Our expert skin therapists will apply an ultra-hydrating hyaluronic serum which will be infused deep into the dermis with the microcurrent. Using microcurrent wands, the muscle groups of the face and neck will be targeted with movements which either relax or tone the muscles depending on the specific area being treated

How is microcurrent used for cosmetic treatment and why is it so effective?

As we age, our body loses much of its natural electrical energy, much like a battery gradually losing its charge. On a cellular level, this leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin, which leads to unevenness of texture; lines, wrinkles and folds become the inevitable result. Beneath the skin, the facial muscles become increasingly contracted over years of facial expression and gravity, allowing the overall lift of our face to decline. Microcurrent emits subtle electrical frequencies that mimic the body’s own electrical signals, thereby increasing the amount of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the chemical fuel of human cells) by as much as 500%. Such increased levels of ATP speed cellular metabolism; the result is a detoxification that increases the rate of toxin elimination. The results of these processes can be seen in improved skin tone and coloration, the reduction of fine lines, and firming of sagging areas.

All of these combinations are key factors in the effectiveness of microcurrent facial sculpting. The body is literally being recharged back to its more youthful electrical state, as though a draining battery were plugged into a charger. With each treatment, ATP levels are stockpiled or stored, which is why microcurrent facial treatments are cumulative and become better as a series of treatments progresses. A single microcurrent treatment will deliver up to 72 hours of lift in the initial treatment, then 3-4 days as you reach your 4th or 5th treatment. By the 6th or 8th treatment, muscle memory takes over and progress becomes more rapid and longer lasting, until only a booster treatment is needed every 4 weeks to maintain the results. This is called “muscle re-education.” This dramatic increase of ATP levels allows muscles to stay in the re-educated positions for longer periods of time.
