Experience our Non-Surgical Face Lift with a Microcurrent Facial
Microcurrent facial toning is a great alternative to getting a face lift since it is non-invasive, does not require any recovery time, gives instant results, and does not have the same potential for harmful complications as surgery does.
This is a technique used for both men and women that can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin.
Based on technology which has been successfully used in medicine, the technique utilizes microcurrent stimulation to restore healthy skin cells.
Using computer automation, an instrument measures the condition of your skin and underlying tissue. The microcurrent face lift procedure is proven safe and effective, delivering results at a fraction of the cost of traditional procedures.
With this information the instrument delivers very subtle electrical stimulation to the skin at specific points, reprogramming facial muscles back to a youthful tone and resilience
Benefits of Microcurrent Treatments:
Microcurrent delivers a variety of benefits to patients who wish to maintain a more youthful looking appearance and is an extremely safe and gentle non-invasive alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive treatments. The results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just “happen” overnight. Although microcurrent facial treatment has been known to produce an immediate and temporary rejuvenating effect, continued daily application will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results!

About Microcurrent Facial Treatment:
A microcurrent facial involves the delivery of safe, painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to rehabilitate, firm and tone the facial muscles on both an immediate and long-term basis. As we age, our electrical impulses can slow down causing aging and sagging facial skin. Microcurrent facial machines gently work in harmony with the natural bioelectrical currents naturally found in our bodies to help speed up the natural regenerative process resulting in firmer, healthier, more youthful looking skin.

FAQ’s – Microcurrent Facial Treatment
Is Microcurrent Facial Treatment Safe?
Microcurrent facial treatment is considered a safe, easy and gentle on the skin however the following precautions should always be taken:
Microcurrent treatment is not appropriate for:
- Pregnant women
- People subject to seizures
- People with cancer/tumors
- People with cardiac pacemaker
- People with implanted defibrillators/stimulators
- People with electronic implanted devices
Is the Microcurrent technique painful?
Absolutely not. This non-invasive treatment induces a state of relaxation in a gentle alpha-wave stimulation. Many people are so relaxed they fall asleep.
Will I feel anything?
You will feel the gentle touch of the probes with cotton tips as they move along your face. You may feel a slight tingling sensation as the instrument measures the condition of your skin. This can be adjusted for complete comfort.
How many Microcurrent sessions do I need?
A series of 12 sessions is recommended two times per week for optimum results. Monthly maintenance is recommended.
How soon will I see results from the Microcurrent Facial treatment?
The condition of your skin and your lifestyle play an important part in determining results. Usually, you can see results after the first session and the treatment results are cumulative in effect.
How does the Microcurrent Facial affect muscle tone?
Our everyday emotions, stress and tension can cause muscles to tighten u, as on the forehead. The series is designed to re-establish proper muscle tone. Depending upon our facial expression, microcurrent treatments can re-program a facial muscle to accept or release its tone.
Do you recommend specific skin products?
We suggest products most likely to enhance and prolong the effect of the microcurrent treatments.
Are there other health benefits from the Microcurrent Facial?
Yes. The Microcurrent Facial technique stimulates blood circulation, increases the flow of oxygen to tissues, and speeds the elimination of toxins from cells. These benefits help reduce the overall effects of aging.
The History Behind Microcurrent Therapy:
In 1980, Thomas W. Wing. D.C., N.D., LAc., a fifth generation Chinese Doctor is credited with introducing a microcurrent instrument which was found to be beneficial in the treatment of muscles. Originally approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator, it also found new life in the Cosmetology industry for cellular rejuvenation, facial toning and wrinkle reduction.
Microcurrent techniques have been proven successful in treating a variety of medical conditions including Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is facial paralysis and usually effects one side of the face only. The cause is unknown, but inflammation of one of the facial nerves results in muscle paralysis to one side of the face. This usually recovers over a period of months, but on occasions can be permanent.
Electrical currents have been incorporated into facial machines for many years. The research and development conducted to assist the “baby boomers” in maintaining a youthful appearance has promoted their evolution to the highly efficient apparatuses we have at our disposal today. Understandably, there is a great deal of interest around the muscle enhancement abilities of microcurrent.
Microcurrent also promotes collagen and elastin production in your skin, and has the ability to dramatically increase ATP production. ATP is basically the vitality of your cells. The buildup in ATP explains the lasting effects of microcurrent on re-educating the facial muscles to tighten and tone. To quote D. Tsoklis, an expert on the subject, “Microcurrent is the reproduction of your own biological current. As we age, this current, which sends messages from the brain to the muscles via the spinal cord, does not send those messages properly.”
Microcurrent skin care treatment restores those messages from the brain to tell the skin to rejuvenate. It helps tone facial muscles by replicating our own biological currents. Clinical studies have shown that after twenty days of treatment collagen production increases by 14 percent, elastin increases by 48 percent, and blood circulation increases by 38 percent. Scientists have also found that microcurrent facelift treatments trigger the body’s production of amino acids and ATP. Both of these accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production.
