What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent is a stimulating facial treatment that helps the skin tone and firms deep within muscle. This treatment is geared towards the treatment of aging skin to improve muscle laxity and the look of lines and wrinkles. This treatment also can have a lifting effect, making it great for a boost before a special event. Microcurrent is also particularly great for reducing puffiness of the face by aiding circulation and the natural lymphatic drainage process.

How is Microcurrent Performed?

Microcurrent is a facial toning procedure that is performed in-office and involves no downtime. Most often, the microcurrent machine applicator is comprised of two wands, or gloves and are both applied to the face at the same time. These wands or gloves, emit a low-frequency electrical current, which will increase your body’s collagen and elastin production. For this facial, the skin will be cleansed and prepped for the procedure. Your skin care practitioner will apply a serum or topical product for better contact and results.  The treatment itself is comfortable, with only a slight prickly feeling.


This treatment is a favorite among patients due to the glow you have right after the treatment. This treatment involves no downtime, and most microcurrent facials involve aspects of a classic facial leaving your skin glowy and balanced. Results of this treatment include a more lifted appearance and firmer skin. Patients will appear more youthful and refreshed right after treatment and for the next few weeks.
