Non-Surgical Face Lift / Microcurrent FAQs

  • What happens if I stop using the Microcurrent?

    Microcurrent is like an exercise regimen, if you exercise for some time and then stop the positive effects are not retained and your body again becomes unfit. Similarly, the effects of Microcurrent are cumulative. If Microcurrent treatment sessions are not followed up with maintenance sessions, the extra energy (ATP) stored in the cells is replete and the skin starts showing signs of ageing all over again.

  • Is it a new technology?

    No, it is a very old technology which was initially used for wound healing treatment of non-union fractures and bone implants during World War II. Later on in 1960’s it was used for the treatment of Bell’s palsy and now a days it is an extremely popular technology to treat skin aging.

  • How soon will I see some improvement?

    Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative, and as such, microcurrent treatments are typically performed in a series to gain maximum anti-aging results.

  • Is this treatment painful?

    No. In most cases it is sub-sensory, and many people find it quite relaxing.

  • How often can I receive this treatment?

    It depends on the condition of the skin and muscles and is largely determined by your age.  To obtain the maximum results, a series of ten to fifteen treatments should be performed at least twice weekly, with regularly scheduled monthly maintenance treatments.  Your skin care practitioner will determine how many sessions will be required.
