Would you like to look younger without surgery or fillers?

Microcurrent is a great alternative to fillers or surgery!
Many of my clients want to turn back the clock, but do not want to do anything to drastic. Microcurrent Natural Facelift could be the answer!

You will receive a relaxing facial treatment resulting in healthier, younger looking skin and toned, lifted muscles.

What is Microcurrent and why does the Natural Facelift work?

Microcurrent Technology is the only aesthetic treatment available that can physically firm and tone the skin through muscle re-education. The Microcurrent Facelift is proven safe and effective as the Microcurrent mirrors the body?s own natural current and works in harmony with the body?s electrical system.

Microcurrent impulses trigger a chemical reaction at a cellular level to increase the effectiveness of how our bodies use ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a protein that is referred to as ?the energy of life? and is present in all living cells. By reproducing the body?s own biological current we can re-establish muscle memory naturally thus bringing more definition to the face and body.

A clinical study on Microcurrent by the University of Washington indicates that by increasing ATP activity we achieve:

? Increased cell metabolism and plumping of ?slack? muscles
? Enhanced fibroblast activity resulting in a 14% increase in natural collagen production
? Enhanced protein synthesis resulting in a 48% increase of natural elastin
? A 38% increase in blood circulation

Frequently ask questions:

What does a Microcurrent Facelift Treatment look and feel like?

A Microcurrent Face Treatment is incredibly relaxing!

We deep clean the skin with an exfoliating AHA/BHA cleanser and use ozone rich steam to soften and prepare the skin.
We then massage a special blend of serums into your skin that are designed to deeply hydrate, nourish and firm the skin.
Next the practitioner puts on a pair of soft gloves that have silver threads woven throughout to transmit the current. The gloves are plugged into the Microcurrent machine and the practitioner performs a specific facial massage for about 45 minutes to an hour, designed to enhance the tone and firmness of the muscles while the Microcurrent is transmitted into the skin.
Next we fine-tune the lifting process with special wands to enhance the lifting of the eye and mouth area and to aid in plumping of the lips.
Last but not least we finish the treatment with the appropriateSunblock or Moisturizer.

The Microcurrent helps to deliver the serums that were applied earlier deeper into the tissue, thus enhancing their performance as well.

The Microcurrent mimics the body?s own natural current and is incredibly relaxing ? many clients fall into a rejuvenating slumber while receiving the treatment.

Will I feel the current?

Most likely you will not feel the current. The current is so low that it doesn?t stimulate the sensory nerves. However, you might feel warmth or relaxation of the tissue.

Sometimes a light fluttering can be experienced and some people can feel the current around the jaw if they have a lot of fillings or metal implants. In that case the current can just be turned down a little.

Will I see results in just one session?

Most people can see a difference in the improvement of their muscles tone in just one treatment. However the results at first will be minimal and last for about 48 hours. This makes a single session ideal right before a big event. To achieve maximum and lasting results at least 10 to 12 weekly treatments are recommended. The Microcurrent has to build up in the tissue to re-educate the muscle and thus needs to be repeated to show lasting results.

Most people will see significant changes after a series of 10 ? 12 treatments and can move on to monthly maintenance treatments to keep up the results. However, depending on age, health, diet, medications and lifestyle sometimes results take a little longer to be visible. In any case ? the Microcurrent treatments are beneficial and improve the health of your cells and tissue by improving circulation, diminish inflammation, improving the lymph flow and improving collagen and elastin production, thus slowing down the signs of aging!
