does your skin need a lift?

As we age, gravity takes it's toll and the muscles in our face begin to sag. We all hate it but it's a fact of life.  Microcurrent is a non-invasive skincare treatment that utilizes low-level electrical currents to retrain facial muscles, teaching them to return to their original state.  This is not hocus pocus, it's just science. Microcurrent was used in the 1960's to treat Bell's Palsy patients who suffered a stroke and one side of their face was drooping.  The same technology is used in modern skincare to lift aging muscles in the face. 


Microcurrent improves skin tone, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Often referred to as a "natural facelift" or "non-surgical facelift," Microcurrent facials aim to mimic the body's natural electrical currents, which play a role in cellular communication and muscle movement.

Here's how a Microcurrent Facial typically works:

  1. Preparation: The skin is cleansed thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, and oil from the surface.

  2. Application of Conductive Serum: A conductive serum is applied to the skin to ensure good conductivity and to facilitate the movement of the microcurrent device over the skin.

  3. Microcurrent Treatment: During the treatment, handheld probes deliver low-level electrical currents to specific areas of the face and neck. These microcurrents stimulate the "Golgi Tendon Organ" and help the muscles to reset into their pre-gravity positions. This results in a lifting and tightening effect, as well as improved circulation and lymphatic drainage.

  4. Massage and Sculpting: The Aesthetician may use the Microcurrent device to perform massage and sculpting techniques, targeting areas of concern such as the jawline, cheeks, cheekbones, and forehead. This helps to contour the face, reduce puffiness, and enhance facial symmetry.

  5. Finishing Steps: After the Microcurrent treatment a moisturizer or sunscreen may be applied to protect and hydrate the skin.


Benefits of a Microcurrent facial may include:

  • Lifted and tightened facial muscles

  • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines

  • Improved skin tone and texture

  • Enhanced circulation and lymphatic drainage

  • Increased collagen and elastin production

  • Non-invasive alternative to surgical facelifts


Microcurrent facials are generally safe and suitable for most skin types, although they are not be recommended for pregnant women or individuals with epilepsy, pacemaker, metal implants, or medical device implants. Multiple sessions are often recommended to achieve optimal results, and maintenance treatments may be needed to sustain the benefits over time.
