Microcurrent facial technology is one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry and is used to perform facial sculpting – tightening, toning, and firming of aging skin.The Microcurrent Facial has no risk of harmful side effects, non-invasive, no pain, no redness, no swelling, no downtime, no thermal wounding, providing affordability and results you can see and feel. Microcurrent is an esthetic 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”.

How to Prepare for a Microcurrent Facial
A Microcurrent facial works most efficiently on well-hydrated skin, and adequate water intake prior to treatment is essential. You should drink a minimum of 16 ounces of water before and after each treatment. If going through a series of microcurrent treatments, you should stay well hydrated throughout the entire series.
How Many Microcurrent Treatments Will You Need
One Microcurrent facial treatment is a great “event” treatment. Lifting results last anywhere from one week to one month. 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, you will need a series of treatments to see maximum results. A series of 10 treatments – two a week for five weeks is recommended for results to reach their maximum potential. The procedure itself takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and is virtually painless.
Can Microcurrent be combined with other treatments?
Layering technologies optimize your results. By utilizing multiple treatments together, it significantly increases the end result. HydraFacials or Microdermabrasion combined with a Microcurent facial is a dynamic, natural non-invasive treatment to fight the aging process. HydraFacial or Microdermabrasion may be performed as an exfoliating treatment prior to a Microcurrent. Microcurrent working from the inside out, and HydraFacial or Microdermabrasion from the outside in.
