MICROCURRENT - Targeted Treatments
Microcurrent can be used for various targeted treatments. Microcurrent can help to lift and depuff the eye area, it can be used to lift and tone the face, it can target specific areas of need, and it can be used to help revitalize aging and sun damaged hands. Microcurrent can be incorporated into a treatment facial, or it can be done as a stand-alone treatment, for each individual area. Prices and treatment times vary per treatment area.
The use of microcurrent therapy in medical treatments started out during the late 1980's in the United States and was approved as a muscle stimulator.
Microcurrent treatment at that time had been used to treat patients with Bell's Palsy, a facial paralysis, and stroke. This treatment is beneficial for lifting of uneven and sagging facial muscles. In the early 1990's, microcurrent facial treatment was adopted in the cosmetic industry.
Facial Microcurrent is a safe, painless, non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps tone, lift and firm sagging facial muscles back to their original position and shape.

How does Facial Microcurrent work?
Facial Microcurrent uses electric current that recharges the facial tissues. Stimulating muscles as well as stimulating ATP in the cell's mitochondria.
The conductive gel is initially applied on the face; a dual-tipped probed device is then rubbed on the skin's surface to stimulate the muscles that need treatment. Our body's own current works in harmony with the electric impulses the microcurrent machine emits. The machine used in this procedure sends painless impulses to the facial muscles, thus helping the muscles to relax and recover their strength and re-educate them to return to their original position.
Treatment sessions last for about 30 minutes to an hour. A complete treatment course has an average of 10-15 treatments within the first 8-12 weeks with a recommended once a month maintenance treatment. However, the number of treatments varies depending on each client's skin condition and muscle tone.
Targeted Microcurrent treatments, whether, hands, eyes, or face, are an easy and effective way to hold back the signs of aging.
It's very relaxing and I know you're going to love it!
