Many of you have experienced Microcurrent, and often ask me how these amazing treatments work. Here is clinical information on all the benefits you receive during your appointment.
1) What is microcurrent?
Microcurrent is a form of electricity measured in one-millionth of an ampere that mimics your body’s natural current. When microcurrent is applied it triggers impulses to facilitate a chemical reaction to activate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP plays a major role in skin rejuvenation. It is the power source and energy transfer that makes life possible in every single organism! The energy of microcurrent is transmitted through the skin to the fascia and muscles beneath the skin. This process tones, tightens, and improves microcirculation leaving your skin feeling lifted and glowing.
Microcurrent is often called a “natural face lift.” It was discovered by accident when a physician was using microcurrent to treat the face of a patient with Bell’s palsy. Over time, the physician noticed the patient’s face looked younger as facial wrinkles reduced significantly.
2) What are the benefits of my Microcurrent Facial?
Microcurrent is a great option for aging gracefully because it does not rely on wounding the dermis to stimulate its anti-aging properties like traditional aggressive treatments or cosmetic surgery.
The benefits of professional microcurrent are:
Reduction of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles
Hydration and revitalization, resulting in smoother and softer skin
Improvement of blood circulation and lymphatic drainage
Visible firming and contouring, lifting overall drooping features
Tightening of sagging jowls, doubling chins, and fatty cheeks
Closing of enlarged pores
Reduction of blackheads and acne
Reduction of scars and pitting
Reduction of dark circles and puffiness under eyes
Reduction of the symptoms from eczema, melasma, and rosacea

3) Why are my Microcurrent Facials so effective?
Microcurrent initiates or restarts cellular activity and healing. As we age, our ATP production reduces by half. Our natural electrical energy weakens which leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin. We start to see sagging and unevenness of texture (lines, wrinkles, and folds). Beneath the skin, the facial muscles become increasingly contracted over years of facial expression and constant gravity, resulting in droopy skin.
4) Do microcurrent treatments hurt?
Many of my clients tell me that my microcurrent treatments are painless and a relaxing experience. Unlike laser treatments, microcurrent does not rely upon a thermal energy source so there is no inflammation or redness, no need to heal before seeing results, and absolutely no downtime. Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately. Watch this video for an inside peak at one of my treatments.
5) How soon will I see results?
Results will depend upon an individual’s condition, as well as other factors affecting the health and condition of skin. After only one treatment, most people will notice their skin feeling tighter and well nourished. With more treatments, further changes become even more obvious and long lasting as facial “memory” is achieved and sustained. Homecare is also very important to enhance the results of your facial investment. I love pairing DNA Signal Plus with Microcurrent because they signal the body’s cells to regenerate, resulting in younger looking skin. DNA Signal Plus contain amino acids and peptides which are powerhouse ingredients for skin rejuvenation. Signal Plus naturally have antioxidant properties that promote cellular turnover and increase collagen production. Microcurrent + DNA Skincare Signal Plus = fewer lines, fewer wrinkles, improved skin texture, and repair on a cellular (deeper) level.
Here are what some of my actual clients are saying about this treatment:
“I love the microcurrent facial. I am 54 years old with long term sun damage, and also I have very loose and cracked eyelids. I am so pleased with my skin and eyelids since I have been having the microcurrent facial treatments. Michele is the very best!!! I would not trust my face with anyone else.” Jill B.
“Michele Burns introduced me to microcurrent several months ago. I had dark circles under my eyes and they were sagging. After the first treatment, I saw a difference and decided to get the package. I am amazed at the difference in my skin and the way it feels. I get compliments all the time about how good my skin looks. Michele is very knowledgeable about skin care and I trust her advice. I have been with her for over 3 years and wish I had a picture of my skin when I started going to her to show how great the results are. I highly recommend her and trying microcurrent!” Michelle R.
6) How many treatments should I have?
Similar to starting a strength training routine where consistent exercise builds off previously developed muscle mass, microcurrent treatments build off structural changes from previous treatments to yield amazing results. The best and most dramatic outcomes are seen from clients that come in consecutively once a week for twelve treatments. Packages of 12 are available for a discounted rate. Once a client is satisfied with their progress, visits can be reduced to monthly maintenance in order to maintain the results. Unlike exercise though, the great thing about microcurrent, is any amount of treatment is noticeable. Even clients who come in once a month for treatments notice a difference!
7) How long will microcurrent results last?
Unfortunately aging does not stop, therefore anti-aging care should continue. Once the desired results are achieved, continued monthly treatments paired with a great home skincare regimen will maintain healthy and youthful skin.
8) Are all microcurrent machines the same?
Absolutely not! I chose Neurotris Microcurrent because it is the #1 professional microcurrent machine on the market, FDA approved, and made in the U.S.A. It is the ONLY microcurrent machine that measures impedance which allows me to manage how the current is going through to your skin cells. This professional device found only in a licensed esthetician treatment room can produce immediate results. Home-use microcurrent devices are not as powerful and may take up 20 sessions for any visible change.
I hope this answers your questions about microcurrent and leaves you feeling even more confident about choosing my # 1 anti-aging facial treatment. I can not wait to see how your skin changes when you invest in this service.
Be good to yourself, and your skin,
