Microcurrent Information

Professional Treatments

Microcurrent has been used within the medical field to promote skin tissue healing and treat Bell’s Palsy, for many years. It uses a very low intensity current in small pulses. So it is a relaxing, non-invasive treatment with very little sensation.

Facial Microcurrent is often called non-surgical face lifting. It is like a passive workout for your face. It works to reprogram the muscle fibres. It can shorten or relax the fibres thereby lifting sagging muscles of the jaw, neck and face. Something that no aesthetic laser treatment can do.
Certain movements also assist with smoothing out surface lines. Giving an instant more youthful appearance.
These instant type of effects usually last for 3-5 days. So, an initial course of weekly treatments is suggested to add a cumulative effect. Then you may choose to have regular maintenance treatments.
The benefits of microcurrent are not only in lifting and surface appearance. The treatment increases the ATP(energy in the cells) in the tissue, promoting collagen and elastin production.
Microcurrent also reduces areas of puffiness and fluid retention via lymphatic drainage and improved circulation.
It is a fantastic treatment to try if you have a special event in the near future.
It can also be followed with a specialist lifting mask for outstanding results.

Like most dermal therapy treatments – individual results will vary from person to person. It is also advisable to stop using any retinol or treatment serums 48 hrs prior. All jewellery must be removed prior to treatment. There are some conditions that prevent microcurrent treatment. Information is provided below.
