Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do these microcurrent treatments work?
Our bodies are electrical. Each of our cells is like a tiny battery and is measured in the microcurrent range. Areas of pain, pathology or aging cells are likened to a dead car battery. The cells do not take in nutrition properly and do not properly get rid of waste products. By recharging the cells, we are returning the cells to a normal, healthy state. It is perhaps the most NATURAL form of facials and body treatments because it simply puts back into the body that which was already there. Our microcurrent facials also increase ATP concentrations in the tissue. ATP, adenosine-triphosphate, is a complex organic molecule which transports energy throughout the cells of the body. ATP stimulates amino acid and protein synthesis production, making your cells healthier and more energized. See our “Research” link for more details.
2. Will the treatments hurt?
Absolutely not. These treatments are very comfortable and relaxing.
3. What happens during a microcurrent facial?
The facial treatment begins with a relaxing ear clip treatment. The clips are placed on the ear lobes which contain the acupressure points to the face. The ear clip treatment puts you into an “alpha state,” giving you about two to three hours of “electro-sleep” in just 10 minutes. This also is the memory channel to the brain, thus helping your memory.
As the treatment continues, a plate is placed somewhere on your body. The most common area is the hand. However, if you are experiencing an area of pain or tightness, we prefer to plate this area. During the treatment, not only will your face be treated, but also your area of pain. The entire area from your face to your plate will be treated, enhancing the health of your body.
Facials include lymphatic drainage, stimulating the muscles, fascia and connective tissue of the neck and face. In the Deluxe Power Facial, the nerves of the neck and face are also treated, stimulating all areas of the facial tissue. In the Deluxe and Focus Power Facial time is then spent on a specific area of the face in which you would like your face improved, such as eye lines, lightening of dark spots, sagging neck, acne removal, etc.
In closing, we hydrate your face, leaving you relaxed and glowing.
4. How many treatments will I need?
You may see a remarkable difference with just one treatment. To see major corrections on the face, however, it is recommended to receive six to twelve treatments consecutively.
5. How long do I have to wait to get a treatment after I’ve had Botox or Restalin?
You should always follow your Dr.’s instruction; however, it is safe to get a treatment approximately 2 weeks after these procedures.
6. When will I see results?
You will see results immediately. However, consecutive treatments are recommended for major improvements.
7. Can I go out the same day after receiving a treatment?
Yes! Your face will be refreshed and glowing. For acne clients, your skin may be temporarily inflamed while the treatments work on your acne.
8. Am I required to do anything before or after my treatments?
Yes. Please drink plenty of water before and after your treatments. Also, it is best if you do not shower, exercise or get a massage for four hours after your treatment. The treatments continue to work even after you leave.
9. Can you come to my home to give me a microcurrent facial?
Yes, we will come to where you are and give you an excellent facial.
10. Does it work on wrinkles, sagging skin and brown spots?
Absolutely. That’s the reason for getting a microcurrent facial. We specifically target a problem area and recommend several consecutive treatments for best results.
11. How effective is a cellulite treatment?
Results vary. Consultation is recommended.
12. If I refer a client, do I get any discount?
Yes. If you refer one client, you will get 25% off a facial of your choice. If you refer two clients, in addition to the 25% off, you will get 75% off a second facial of your choice.
