What is Microcurrent?
It is a gentle electrical stimulation that triggers the body's natural skin enhancement chemicals at a cellular level.
Clinical studies have shown that after twenty days of treatment collagen production increases by 14%, elastin increases by 48%, and blood circulation increases by 38%. Scientists
have also found that microcurrent facelift treatments trigger the body's production of amino acids and adenosine triphosphste (ATP) which accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production.
Microcurrent is a low level of electrical current that mirrors body's own natural current, which is sub sensory in most
causes and therefore barely noticeable. A good comparison of how low microcurrent is: it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40 watt light bulb. It is difficult
for the sensory nerves receptors to be stimulated by such low current. Microcurrent uses microamps (Ua); there are 1,000 microamps in a milliamp (mA). True Microrrent uses less than 500 microamps.
What are the recommended
The number of treatments 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. Typically clients will notice a reduction in facial aging.
30-35 years old: 4-6 treatments, 1 time per week. Maintenance very 6-8 weeks.
35-40 years old: 6-10 treatments, 2 times per week. Maintenance every 6-8 weeks.
40-50 years old: 8-12 treatments, 2-3 times per week. Maintenance every 4-8 weeks.
50-60 years old: 12-15 treatments, 2-3 times per week. Maintenance every 4-8 weeks.
60+ years old: 15 treatments, 3 times per week. Maintenance every 4 weeks.
Younger clients can seek a microcurrent facelift to prevent some of the aesthetic effects of aging. Older clients will minimize lines, wrinkles, and
improve skin tone and texture. It is known as the red Carpet treatment, the lunchtime lift for its immediate results and no downtime. It is the most effective treatment before any important event.

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 more than a century.
