Microcurrent 

Preventative and Corrective Anti-Aging

Microcurrent is a safe and effective preventative and corrective treatment for aging skin which uses low level electrical current to trigger the body’s skin chemicals at a cellular level providing firming and toning benefits that continue to improve with subsequent treatments.

Microcurrent can achieve the following benefits:

    •    Improve muscle tone in the face and neck

    •    Lift jowels and eyebrows

    •    Reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles

    •    Improve facial circulation

    •    Aid in lymphatic drainage

    •    Enhance product penetration to treat multiple skin problems

    •    Smoother, firmer skin

    •    Hydrated and revitalized skin

    •    Improved elasticity

    •    Increase in cellular energy (ATP) to muscle cells leading to increased muscular tone and cell repair

    •    Increase in natural collagen production to increase hydration and fullness

    •    Increase in natural elastin production

    

 

The treatment lifts, smoothes, tightens and tones. Probes are used to physically move the muscle into the desired position to perform muscle re-education – the process of lengthening or shortening muscles. Having muscle re-education movements performed in a series re-trains the muscles to maintain this new contour.

 

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. Once a series is completed, the results can be maintained by coming in every 4-8 weeks for maintenance treatments. Additionally, a series can be repeated every few years. If the full series of treatments is completed and maintenance sessions are continued on a monthly basis, results should last 3-4 years.

 

   

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. 

The following are general and approximate guidelines for frequency of treatment:

    •    20 – 30 years old: Preventative, to slow down the aging process, once a month.

    •    30 – 40 years old: Preventative/Corrective, Initial series of 6, once per week,

          then Maintenance every 4-6 weeks

    •    40 – 50 years old: Corrective, Initial series of 8-12, once to twice per week,

          then Maintenance every 4-6 weeks

    •    50 – 60 years old: Corrective, Initial series of 12-15, once to twice per week,

          then Maintenance every 4-6 weeks

    •    60 plus years old: Corrective, Initial series of 15-18, ideally twice per week,

          then Maintenance every 4 weeks

    

 

Microcurrent is also perfect for special occasions or a quick pick-me-up for an instant lift lasting up to two days.
