Like pilates for your face! A mild electrical current stimulates the skin and facial muscles, while not only promoting healing, but also collagen and elastin production. The entire face becomes lifted and contoured, lines and puffiness are diminished and overall complexion is improved. You'll see visible results from just one treatment. During the 50 minute facial you will enjoy a cleansing, microcurrent treatment, light exfoliation and LED light therapy, followed by the application of a serum & moisturizer customized for your skin. It's relaxing and completely painless.
Microcurrent facials are considered a form of muscular re-education for the face, manipulating 32 different facial muscles. To perform this muscular re-education, probes are placed on the skin and used to physically move the muscles into the desired position. The treatment affords the muscles the necessary energy to keep tension in their new improved position. The high frequency electrical signals reach deep into the facial muscles and surrounding tissues to promote circulation, collagen production, cellular repair and regeneration.
If you already get Botox or fillers, microcurrent is the perfect compliment. Fillers give a quick and effective “plumping” effect, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, they do nothing for muscle contour, natural collagen, or elastin production — all of which are needed to maintain the face’s natural fullness and youthfulness. Over time, Botox actually causes atrophy to the facial muscles. Regular microcurrent treatments help keep those muscles alive. Microcurrent is also a great choice for anyone looking to wean themselves off of Botox and fillers.
Scientists have found that microcurrent treatments trigger the body’s production of amino acids and adenosine triphosphste (ATP), which accelerates cell repair and promotes healthier cell production, making microcurrent a highly-healing, restorative and regenerative treatment.
