Want to look younger without undergoing cosmetic surgery?
Microcurrent Therapy is an anti-aging treatment that uses
electricity to turn back the hands of time.
Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is a non-invasive therapy used to stimulate and tone facial muscles and is great for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to tighten and tone other areas of the body. It was originally used by medical doctors to treat stroke patients and patients with Bells Palsy which makes the skin sag because the muscles atrophy. Microcurrent treatments are ideal for clients who want facial rejuvenation without having to undergo surgery, and for those who want an alternative to botox injections.
Microcurrent has been shown in university studies to improve elasticity, collagen and elastin content and blood circulation. It uses a very small amount of electrical current to stimulate ATP production by as much as 500% in the cells. Sometimes referred to as “muscle re-education,” microcurrent can help tighten muscle tissue and produce great improvement in elasticity and contour. The current used is so gentle that it does not cause a visible muscle contraction. Treatments must be administered starting with an initial series of 10 to 12 sessions, then less frequently to maintain results.
Microcurrent is commonly known as the Lunchtime Facelift because it’s pain-free with no down time after treatment. With no needles, no pain and no downtime, microcurrent therapy is the preferred anti-aging treatment of many celebrities including Elle Macpherson, Meg Ryan, Kim Basinger, and Liv Tyler. Christie Brinkley, who turned 60 on February 2, 2014, told Examiner that she has not had plastic surgery; but said her beauty secrets include "special facials" once a month to smooth out wrinkles.

Q. How many sessions will I need?
A. The number of sessions depends on the client's age and skin condition. Our general guidelines for frequency of treatment is as follows:
• 20 – 30 years old - Every 6-8 weeks as preventative to slow down the aging process
• 31 – 35 years old - Initial series of 6, once per week; Maintenance every 6-8 weeks
• 36 – 40 years old - Initial series of 10, once to twice per week; Maintenance every 6-8 weeks
• 41 – 50 years old - Initial series of 12, once to twice per week; Maintenance every 4-8 weeks
• 51 – 60 years old - Initial series of 12, twice per week; Maintenance every 4-6 weeks
• 61 plus years old - Initial series of 12, twice per week; Maintenance every 2-4 weeks
Q. How long will my results last?
A. The effects of microcurrent are immediate and cumulative. Clients go through a series of treatments followed by regular maintenance to keep a more youthful appearance. Each time a treatment is performed the new contour maintains its position better and longer.
Q. Are there conditions that can prevent me from being able to receive microcurrent treatments?
A. There are certain contraindications that will preclude microcurrent treatments. Individuals with autoimmune disorders, diabetes, cancer, embolism, epilepsy, melanoma, metal implants (including plates/pins/screws), open wounds, pacemakers, phlebitis, pregnancy, thrombosis, and varicose veins should not receive microcurrent. Use of Botox®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and any other injectable must be disclosed prior to treatment.
Q. How does microcurrent compare to treatments like Botox?
A. Unlike other procedures, Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is 100% pain free, totally relaxing and has no known risks or side affects. With comparable results to procedures like Botox, Juvederm and Restylane, Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is capable of attaining a huge variety of anti-aging results using one safe and natural process. Many other procedures involve significant pain that may require pain relievers, anti inflammatory medications or antibiotics that could compromise the client's health. Often times, the end result of surgical face lifts is longer than expected recovery time and an unnatural look because the skin is too tight ("the surprised look").
Q. What's the cost comparison for Microcurrent and dermal fillers?
A. The cost of Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is as low as $75 per session and has a 98% client satisfaction rate. The average price of Botox is $500 per treatment with a 68% client satisfaction rate. Juvederm costs an average of $650 per treatment, and also has a 68% client satisfaction rate. Restylane costs $675 per treatment on average, and 66% of clients are satisfied with their results.*
Q. What if I just want to feel rejuvenated or to look good for a special occasion?
A. Micro-Tone is perfect for a quick pick-me-up and an instant lift lasting up to two days. Bio-Lift is excellent as a post-surgical healing treatment to maintain the lift and treat blood stasis, scarring, and numbness. We advise you to consult with your plastic surgeon before having this treatment.
