An aesthetic treatment available that can physically firm and tone the skin through muscle re-education. This process of a gentle re-education' of the fine facial muscles stimulates them with very small amounts of electricity. Micro-current is a specific amount of electricity that mirrors the body's own natural current and works in harmony with the body's electrical system. By reproducing the body's own biological current we can re-establish muscle memory naturally. Muscle re-education is most related to the term "facial toning". There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the average microcurrent treatment. The treatment literally lifts, smoothes, and tightens before your eyes.

Gentle, painless, and relaxing, with no recovery time. The face is cleansed, and collagen / contact wands are carefully placed over acupressure points, transmitting painless micro currents to stimulate the underlying muscles. The face and neck are then gently stroked in specific motions to tone the muscles, firm the skin and ionize nutrients deep into the cells of the skin. The micro current facial devices are applied to key muscles and skin tissues to stimulate movements and give the muscles a 'mini workout.' This helps to tone and tighten the muscles over a short period of time, and may prevent many signs of the aging process such as wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin from forming. It is considered to be a facial 'sculpting' procedure without causing injury to the dermis.

Microcurrents seems to be uniquely effective in rebuilding thinner parts of the skin, treating wrinkles and lifting sagging muscles because of its ability to regenerate tissue by stimulating cellular physiology and growth.  Research has shown that lower intensities up to 0.5 microampere are the most effective in restoring normal metabolism and homeostasis. Recent studies from the University of Washington has shown a 48% increase in natural elastin production, 14% increase in the production of natural collagen, and 38% increase in blood circulation over the course of 20 days.

Microcurrent facial toning is cumulative as well, which means that the more treatments you have, the more improvement you will see in your face. Since you are "re-educating" the muscle tissue, it is crucial that you receive a "series" of treatments for results to reach their maximum potential. The microcurrent facelift procedure itself takes approximately one hour to complete and is virtually painless. Most people need a course of around 10 microcurrent sessions to see the full benefits,  although  immediate results are seen and felt from the first treatment. The exact number you need will depend on your skin tissue and muscle tone - not necessarily on your age. Treatments can be done 1 to 3 times a week. According to some studies, one  microcurrent treatment delivers 72 hours of lift, while a series of 10 to 12 treatments gives anywhere from 6 to 18 months of lift. Each time a treatment is performed the new contour maintains its position better and longer. Typically clients will notice a 5 to 7 year reduction in facial aging.

Micro current works most efficiently on  well-hydrated skin, and adequate water intake prior to treatment is essential. Twenty minutes of micro-current releases as many toxins as four hours of deep tissue massage. Anyone undergoing Microcurrent Therapy must drink a minimum of 16 ounces of water in the two-hour period before the procedure. Not only should you be well hydrated with water before a  treatment, you should drink at least two quarts of purified or distilled water in the two hours following treatment.

Microcurrent and injectables.
Utilizing both technologies maximize the end result. 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. It reduces post operative swelling, bruising and discomfort by 50 %. 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

Can microcurrent be combined with microdermabrasion?
Layering technologies optimize your results.

Microcurrent Face lift vs Laser:
A micro-current facelift is actually very soothing, and has the potential to boost collagen and elastin production, lift and firms sagging facial muscles, and restore youthful glow to the skin. It also feeds the body a wavelength of current that supports overall health and well-being to the cells. Clients say they not only look younger and less tired, but report better sleep, clear sinuses, loss of headaches and jaw pain, and balanced energy. A typical laser treatment can leave you red and swollen, in pain for days, and often causes short or long term hyper pigmentation or capillary damage. Laser face lift cost comes in somewhere between $500 and $3500 from low end treatments to high end.

Microcurrent Facelift vs Radio Frequency: 
One of the newer technology-based treatments is called Thermage, which uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat the deep layers of the skin. Thermage patients (and their doctors) have reported the following side effects: redness, swelling, burning sensation, bumps, heat blisters, permanent scarring pitting or discoloration, nerve damage. Thermage providers claim "little or no downtime", but actual patients report 3 - 5 days downtime, and the average cost of a single Thermage treatment is $2,800!

Contraindications for Microcurrent Face Lift include: cardiac pacemakers, epilepsy, metal implants, skin irritation, and pregnancy.
