Microcurrent Facial – Lifting Facial

What is it?

The best Microcurrent facials in Calgary have been around for many years and it is one of the oldest treatments for anti aging.  Also known also as the “natural facelift”, this treatment is a great holistic alternative for those wanting a more natural approach to anti-aging.

Microcurrent technology has been around since the 1800’s when it was initially used to treat damaged tissues and muscles. It was the physician of a Bell’s palsy patient who discovered that when using microcurrent therapy on the face of his patients that their skin appeared much younger and smoother. Soon after, it became one of the world’s first high-tech aesthetic treatments.

This painless and safe facial helps to erase wrinkles and fine lines and works on firming the skin and defining beautiful features of men and women. This treatment also reduces puffiness, improves muscle tone, tightens pores and helps increase cellular production. The overall result is a younger and healthier looking skin!

A microcurrent facial emits really low-voltage electrical currents, which mirror your own body’s electrical currents, on a cellular level to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so minor that it would take over one million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb. This treatment is also referred to as “facial toning” because it’s like a workout for your face, where the skin cells are broken down and grow back stronger, similar to your muscles after weight lifting!

Who is the microcurrent facial for?

A microcurrent facial is great for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin, so if you are more focused on an anti-aging or preventative treatment; this is a great choice. It is also safe and effective on all skin types and skin colors.

Pregnant women and those with a heart condition should avoid this treatment.

Are there side effects?

There is no downtime with this facial so after your treatment you will be left with glowing, beautiful skin immediately.

How often should I get a Microcurrent facial?

Results are cumulative, so we recommend a series of sessions for best results and the improvements will be greater and longer lasting. For sustained results, the recommended course of treatment is a series of 5 treatments within the first 5 weeks, followed by a 3-month maintenance schedule.
