What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent is a clinically tested therapy

treatment, and one of the hottest innovations

in the anti-aging industry. It is used in top spas

and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and

firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level

current that mimics the body’s natural current and

can provide both instant andcumulative anti-aging

results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory,

the treatment is soothing and most clients feel

nothing at all.

Microcurrent is a safe and effective technology

for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger looking appearance. The results can be so dramatic that microcurrent therapy treatments are often referred to as the "5 Minute Facial-lift (R)."


Origin of Microcurrent Therapy Treatments

Microcurrent has been used since the 1980s and was originally approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator. The most profound microcurrent treatments were originally discovered with patients experiencing a form of nerve-paralysis, leading to atrophied, sagging facial muscles known as Bell’s Palsy. The cause of Bell’s Palsy is unclear. With the discovery of microcurrent therapy treatments and their low-level current retraining the patient’s muscles, the FDA approved muscle stimulator provided a new anti-aging application for the cosmetology industry.

How Does Microcurrent Work?

Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through the skin, tissues and down to the facial muscles. Microcurrent has been shown to stimulate ATP production. ATP is known as Adenosine triphosphate which drives the creation of key structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, and is the biochemical way to store and use energy.

This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles, similar to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies. Unlike anywhere else on the body, the facial muscles are directly connected to the skin, so the result of energizing the muscle is often an improved, lifted appearance.
