Micro-current Stimulation with Light Therapy
Working on a cellular level to help stimulate the healing process, Micro-current relieves pain, stimulates lymphatic flow, wound and tissue healing, provides relief to myo-fascial trigger points, and increases protein synthesis. The device produces a micro-current strength comparable to the body’s own thereby restoring the body’s natural current. It increases ATP production by 500%; (ATP, found in every cell of the body, is the primary molecule used to produce energy) and increases protein synthesis and amino acid transport.
What is Micro-Current?
Microcurrent is a low level of electricity that mirrors the body‘s own natural electrical currents, triggering chemical reactions at a cellular level to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin, providing circulatory benefits, and re-education of the muscles of the face. The result is immediate firming, smoothing, and re-hydration of the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Micro-current lifts, sculpts and tightens, provides immediate results, and has no downtime.
There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the micro-current facial treatment. The treatment lifts, smooths, tightens and tones. A wand, coupled with LED Light, physically moves the muscle into the desired position to perform muscle re-education – the process of lengthening or shortening muscles. Having muscle re-education movements performed in a series re-trains the muscles to maintain this new contour. Micro-current treatment allows the muscles the necessary energy to keep their tension in this new contour.
Since you are re-educating the muscle tissue, it is crucial that you receive a series of treatments for results to reach their maximum potential. Once a series is completed, the results can be maintained by coming in every 4-8 weeks for maintenance treatments. Additionally, a series can be repeated every few years

The number of sessions depends on the client’s age and skin condition. 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. Typically clients will notice a 5-10 year reduction in facial aging.
THE FOLLOWING ARE GENERAL AND APPROXIMATE GUIDELINES FOR FREQUENCY OF TREATMENT:
20 – 30 years old: Preventative, to slow down the aging process
30 – 35 years old: Initial series of 6, once per week, Maintenance every 6-8 weeks
35 – 40 years old: Initial series of 8-10, once to twice per week, Maintenance every 6-8 weeks
40 – 50 years old: Initial series of 10-12, once to twice per week, Maintenance every 4-6 weeks
50 – 60 years old: Initial series of 12-15, once to twice per week, Maintenance every 4-6 weeks
60 plus years old: Initial series of 15-18, ideally twice per week, Maintenance every 4 weeks
Perfect for special occasions or a quick pick-me-up for an instant lift lasting up to two days.
Excellent for post surgical facelift to maintain the lift and treat blood stasis, scarring, and numbness.
Do this treatment on its own, or team it up with a Facial or Peel!
