Microcurrent

Amicrocurrent facial or treatment helps to stimulate and re-educate facial muscles to provide a youthful, contoured appearance.  It uses a very small low-level current to stimulate facial muscles, acting like a personal trainer to tone the muscles of the face.  As people age, some muscles in the face get overworked, while others start to relax and sag.  Microcurrent helps to re-educate facial muscles, providing a visibly firmer, toned appearance.  A series of treatments, followed by on-going maintenance treatments, are recommended for best results.

We have found that microcurrent facials combined with a proper at-home skin care regimen is by far the best non-invasive facial rejuvenation available.  We regularly receive microcurrent facials ourselves.

How they workservices_microcurrent

Probes are placed a few inches apart on the face and microcurrent is applied to a facial muscle for 12-24 seconds, depending on the service.  26 muscle groups are treated this way.  You will feel the gliding of the probes and perhaps a slight tingling sensation.

Recommended frequency of treatments

It depends on your age and the condition of your skin and facial muscles.   For best results, we typically recommend the following:

  • * 20s: preventative.  One service every 6 to 8 weeks
  • * 30s: a series of 8 treatments, 2 times per week.  Maintenance treatment every 6 weeks.
  • * 40s:  a series of 12 treatments, 2 times per week.  Maintenance treatment every 4 weeks.
  • * 50s:  a series of 15 treatments, 2-3 times per week.  Maintenance treatment every 4 weeks
  • * 60s:  a series of 15 treatments, 3 times per week.  Maintenance treatment every 3 weeks.
