Microcurrent has been called the nonsurgical, or lunchtime face lift. It is a safe and effective, low-cost treatment, holistic alternative to botox and fillers, that counteracts environmental damage, aging skin and poor dietary habits, without invasive surgery. It is the best-kept secret amongst celebrities that want a firm/youthful but natural look.
Microcurrent technology is a low-level electrical current that mimics the body’s own biological current. Despite its low electrical vibration—microcurrent treatments are very effective. It helps increase protein synthesis, promote waste removal, stimulate healing, regenerate tissue, balance free radical damage, boost cell growth, enhance natural collagen and elastin production, provide circulatory benefits, and work directly on the nerves and muscle fibers. It’s mild frequency does not stimulate sensory nerves, is PAIN-FREE and causes no client discomfort.

Microcurrent is a treatment that physically firms and tones the skin through muscle re-education. This process is achieved by stimulating 32 of the 53 facial muscles at traditional acupuncture points with tiny amounts of electricity to re-energize their biological currents and re-establish muscle memory. The result is a reduction of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles; restored healthy glow of youthful skin; visible firming, contouring and lifting; and the tightening of sagging jowls, double chins, and fatty cheeks.
Microcurrent boosts energy of the cells
As people age, the body’s biological current and chemical energy slow down, cellular renewal takes longer and skin cells stop performing efficiently. This leads to multiple skin problems: loss of tone, elasticity, and firmness; fine lines; wrinkles; sagging—all signs of aging. Microcurrent can help reverse this process by re-energizing the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is known as the “current of life” and it is the ONLY energy molecule that the body will accept and utilize as energy.
Without ATP, the human body does not function effectively and will eventually deteriorate. Yet, the body does not store ATP; rather it is manufactured on an as-needed basis. Therefore, the impact of microcurrent to increase levels of ATP is significant.
Because microcurrent stimulates the production of ATP, it can be used to treat virtually any skin condition and has no age limitation.
Results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just happen overnight. Most clients notice a difference after the first treatment. The effect is cumulative, becoming more pronounced after each treatment. The skin and facial muscles become noticeably tighter and more toned with each treatment. About 60–80% of the changes created in one treatment last for the next four to seven days. However, if not treated regularly, the muscles will return to their former configuration.
How Many Treatments do I need
Although the number of treatments in a series will vary depending on your desired results and the complexity of condition, a guideline would be once or twice per week for the first month, once per week for the second month, or until the desired result is achieved, and then once every four weeks for maintenance. Although it may be tempting for you to neglect the check-up visit, gravity, toxins, illness and natural aging will eventually deplete the ATP stockpile if not properly stimulated, so I want to emphasize the importance of follow-through to maintain results.
