Micro-Current Facial - 60 minutes $80

The micro-current facial is a non-invasive approach to aging beautifully that delivers safe, painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to firm and tone the facial muscles on both an immediate and long-term basis. It also simultaneously repairs collagen in the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis (the top layer of skin). This is a procedure that has NO DOWNTIME and results are immediate. Microcurrent facials are painless and so relaxing that clients often fall asleep during the treatment. By stimulating the underlying muscles, I am in effect using the toned muscle to help strengthen, shape and "sculpt" the face. By doing so, your skin regains its "plump and youthful" look! Just like rigorous exercise can lead to well defined abs or biceps, a micro-current facial can re-educate the muscles of the face for a more toned, contoured and defined appearance. Also, just like with regular exercise, optimal results are achieved with multiple treatments. Micro-current can be combined with other facials to achieve even better results. For example, dermabrasion can be used to help reduce fine lines or acne scaring, or a chemical peel can be used for a more aggressive approach.

Micro-Current and Botox

If you have been using Botox for a long period, you may also benefit from a micro-current facial. Botox does not act directly on facial muscles, instead it binds to neurotransmitters, preventing them from signaling the facial muscles to contract. Over a long period of time, this causes the facial muscles to atrophy and the skin above the muscles to have a hollow, concave appearance. Micro-current should be considered as a noninvasive companion to botox injections to diminish any loss in muscle tone. Clients should wait for two weeks after having a botox injection before having a microcurrent facial. When used together, Botox and micro-current are very effective at removing wrinkles and providing your skin with a very youthful appearance.
