Microcurrent Facials...the Key to Natural Rejuvenation

A nonsurgical miracle!

Simple ways to make your big shopping weekend a success!

Noticing fine lines and wrinkles? Is your skin dull? Are you trying everything, but you end up with disappointing results? Experience the Microcurrent Facial and gain the results you want.

A Microcurrent Facial, also known as the "lunchtime facelift," is a non-surgical physical therapy modality that provides numerous aesthetic benefits. This popular procedure utilizes a technology called microcurrent that delivers a low level of electricity to the treatment area in order to initiate favorable chemical reactions at the skin's cellular level.  Microcurrent is painless and the results are amazing!

You will notice improvement after the very first appointment. For best results, you should reserve a series of three to four treatments. Results are more noticeable with each session.

The Microcurrent Facial is similar to the body's own natural electrical current and provides various benefits including:

1. Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
2. Evens out skin tone
3. Lifts jowls and eyebrows
4. Tightens enlarged pores
5. Develops facial and neck muscle tone
6. Alleviates puffiness
7. Smoothes texture
8. Improves circulation
9. Promotes lymphatic drainage
10. Increases product penetration
11. Treats sun-damaged skin
12. Reduces cellulite
13. Boosts the body's natural collagen and elastin production
14. Rehydrates skin
15. Improves cellular metabolism

In addition, Microcurrent methods are successful in treating a variety of medical conditions such as Bell's Palsy, Cancer, and Pain.

Ask a Therapist

Q: While the holiday season is an exciting time, it tends to take a toll on my skin. The additional salt intake, and overall change in diet this time of year leaves my skin dehydrated, and gives me puffy, dark circles under my eyes. Is there anything I can do to alleviate this?

A: The appearance of dark under eye circles can be brought on by several factors. First, vascular structures, which range in color from blue, to red, to purple, are often more obvious under the eyes because of the thin skin that is associated with this delicate area. Vascular dark circles can be exacerbated by fatigue, dehydration, and allergies. Hyperpigmentation may also play a role in some cases of dark circles. These discolorations typically have more of a brown color to them and they are caused by sun exposure and other types of inflammation. The last main cause of dark under eye circles are shadows. As the face ages, it loses volume as a result of loss of underlying bone and fat and this loss of fullness can cause shadowing of the eye area.

While dark circles can be difficult to treat because there are many contributors and because the eyes are often more sensitive than other areas of the face, there are options. Certain ingredients, such as ginseng or Vitamin K work to improve circulation, which could help to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Outcomes with these products will be variable, however, because of the role of lifestyle in these types of dark circles. Products that contain gentle pigment-reducing ingredients can be very helpful for brown-colored discolorations. I recommend looking for products that contain licorice extract or alpha-arbutin, as these ingredients will be less irritating than those that contain stronger lighteners like hydroquinone.

Finally, restoring volume will assist in lessening the effects of shadowing. Topical products that build collagen will help to an extent. Look for products with retinol, L-ascorbic acid or myristoyl nonapeptide-3. I recommend the PCA SKIN Restorative Eye Cream or Revitalizing Eye Gel, as they contain a blend of ginseng for vascular function, niacinamide for hyperpigmentation concerns, and peptides for collagen stimulation.
