We are so excited every time a client discovers our micro-current facial. You may still have questions on what it does. So we are answering the the 5 most asked questions.
What does the Microcurrent facial treat?
Our micocurrent is a non-surgical face lift for neck, jaw and eye areas. Helping to reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. It does all of this by triggering the body’s production of amino acids and cellular ATP (Adensoine Triphosphate- a protein that increases cellular activity) by 500%. So, What does this mean?? It helps accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production.
How is it used?
Microcurrent is a very popular anti aging skin treatment used to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving texture and appearance of skin and reducing the overall visual appearance of aging. Skin care therapists use microcurrent to tone and firm the skin. Muscle re-education is mostly related to the term “facial toning”. Microcurrent will reprogram the muscle fiber. It has been used by alternative medicine practitioners and physicians to treat a broad array of injuries, wounds, soft tissue and bone fracture for over a century.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions depends on the client age and skin condition. The effects of microcurrent are immediate and cumulative. Clients go through a series of treatments followed by regular maintenance to keep a more youthful appearance. Each time a treatment is performed the new contour maintains its position better and longer. A minimum of 10 treatments is highly recommended for dramatic and lasting results.

Can I get this treatment while I have Botox or other injectables?
Fillers give a quick and effective “filling “ effect, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However they do nothing for muscle contour, natural collagen or elastin production, all of which are addressed with microcurrent. Many doctors find it necessary to sculpt and contour the muscles of the face to maximize and complete the effect of fillers. Recommended microcurrent treatment after Botox and fillers is 2 weeks after. A lot of clients and doctors see prolonged effects of Botox when using in conjunction with microcurrent. Because of healing properties that microcurrent possess, it also is recognized as the tool of choice by surgeons for pre and post-op applications. Utilizing both technologies maximizes the end result.
