Microcurrent

Non-surgical Face Lift

What is Microcurrent and how does it work?

We first need to understand what causes our facial skin to wrinkle and sag. As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to get stuck in these positions. A great example of this is the furrow between the eyebrows that many people get. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. An example of this can often be seen around our jaw lines, chins and necks where we tend to develop sagging or loss of definition as we get older. As we age, skin cells become less active, which leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin. By the age of 45, the upper cheek muscles may elongate by as much as half an inch, dragging the skin over the cheeks downward to form plump little pouches at the corners of the mouth. The muscles under the chin become loose and the jaw line loses its firm contour.

MICROCURRENT is a low level of current which mirrors the body’s own natural electrical impulses. 

These impulses which help maintain muscle tone and skin elasticity slow down as our bodies age. 

In conjunction with specialized products and manual manipulations of more than 30 facial muscles, a Micro-current treatment stimulates your body’s currents resulting in visible firming and smoothing of the skin.

 

A course of 12 treatments generally achieves desired results; however, the exact number of sessions is specific to each client. Monthly follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain results.

Is Microcurrent safe?

Yes - The treatments are non-invasive and completely safe.

Does it hurt?

No - A mild tingling may be felt. Most clients find the procedure relaxing.

Can I combine this with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes - Generally microcurrent treatments are lower settings that are a form of galvanic energy that basically make the muscles twitch and tighten like a "workout". They won't affect the Botox or fillers in your face.
