A series of treatments safely and effectively minimizes the visible signs of aging and provides:

  • Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Smoother, firmer skin

  • Improved circulation

  • Hydrated and revitalized skin

  • Improved elasticity

  • Improved facial contours

How long will the results last?

After you have completed the Age-Defying Series maintenance treatments at 3 to 6 week intervals are recommended to retain your results.

Is microcurrent for everyone?

While most people can benefit by the application of microcurrent, there are some absolute contraindications; it cannot be performed on persons with epilepsy, pacemaker, pregnant women, or anyone with active cancer.

Is the treatment safe?

Yes. The entire treatment is performed in a clean environment with disinfected tools.

 

How soon will I see some improvement?

Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative, and as such, microcurrent treatments are typically performed in a series to gain maximum anti-aging results.

Is this treatment painful?

No. In most cases it is sub-sensory, and many people find it quite relaxing.

What type of skin can benefit from Microcurrent?

Microcurrent therapy aids in reducing the signs of aging of all skin types.

How often can I receive this treatment?

It depends on the condition of the skin and muscles and is largely determined by your age. Your skin care practitioner will determine how many sessions will be required and the length of time in between treatments.

Is this a new technology?

No. It has been widely used in the US and has been approved by the FDA.

How does it work?

This low level of electrical current (500 microamperes) works in harmony with the body's natural healing processes. At a cellular level, microcurrent stimulates activity in the cell to create massive amounts (a 500% increase) of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), known as the "energy of life". ATP drives a number of biological processes including muscle contraction/re-education and protein (collagen and elastin) synthesis. Facial toning is achieved through muscle re-education, working a muscle from its origin and insertion inward to shorten slackened muscles (such as in the cheeks or forehead), and working from the belly outward to lengthen contracted muscles (such as the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth downward). Microcurrent also offers specific iontophoresis which allows superior penetration of serums into the skin.

What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent is a low level of electrical current that mirrors the body's own natural current. It's proven and accepted properties and potential range of applications from wound healing, muscle rehabilitation, macular degeneration, to lymphodema continue to assist medical practitioners with amazing results. The intended results of microcurrent facial therapy is to aid in the battle of anti-aging by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the texture and appearance of the skin, re-educating and toning facial muscles, and reducing the overall visual appearance of aging. It is a popular non-invasive service that gives you the freedom to attain anti-aging goals without the recovery, downtime, and expense of surgeries.
