Microcurrent Muscle Re-Education Technology
Microcurrent is like a deep tissue massage of the face and neck with the added benefits of tightening facial muscles and skin, improving tone, clarity and facial contours! It is by far the best therapy for non-invasive face rejuvenation that our estheticians have worked with and results are noticeable immediately. When used in conjunction with Mountain Sun's amazing products, this therapy sends much needed energy to the muscles and skin cells for improved functionality. Benefits of microcurrent include:
Dramatically diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Improved skin tone and elasticity by stimulating an increased production of collagen and elastin through microcurrent impulses
Increased product penetration through ionization, hydration, lymphatic drainage and circulatory benefits
Facial architecture is visibly smoothed and lifted creating a more revitalized, vibrant and younger look

How does Microcurrent work?
Certain muscles in the face get overworked and tight while other muscles start to relax and sag as we age. Microcurrent strengthens the relaxed muscles and stretches the tense muscles, so you get a total muscle re-education of the structure of the face. This results in a face that looks more rested and youthful.
Unlike lasers, the Bio-Therapeutic Microcurrent system works on all skin types and tones. And unlike injections or fillers, microcurrent works on your entire face, forehead, eyes, jaw line, jowls and the area under your chin. Treatments are performed in a series, typically 2-3 per week at first then tapering down to 1 per week for the duration of the series. Follow up facials are scheduled every 3 to 5 weeks depending on age and skin conditions to maintain the results.
How is it applied to the face?
Small low level current is held at both ends of the facial muscle for 12-24 seconds depending on the service. 26 muscle groups in the face are treated in this way. The probes infuse a low level of microcurrent that energizes every cell in the skin and specifically re-educates the muscle to remain in the desired position.
It takes at least 6 sessions to get the desired results for people in their 40's, and more sessions for older individuals. Results will greatly increase with the addition of high-powered firming and cell activating serums applied daily at home.
How long does it last?
If you do one treatment and nothing else it lasts about 4 days. With a series of 7-14 sessions the effects are cumulative so that the re-education of muscles lasts much longer between sessions. After the series is performed, monthly maintenance facials “remind” the muscles to hold. The more you do it the longer it lasts between sessions.
If you have a specific event, party or you are going to make a personal appearance you can do one session before and certainly look better than you would without the microcurrent, but it would be better to do a series leading up to the event.
Microcurrent therapy also lengthens the time needed between botox and injectible treatments.
Can I combine Microcurrent with other facial therapies?
This is a great therapy for the regular facial client who wants to look and feel their best. Microcurrent is non-invasive and can be combined with other therapies such as Microcermabrasion, Lymphatic Drainage Massage and Face Lifts.
Why do facelift clients also do Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent works on the underlying muscles of the face as well as the quality of the skin. Facelifts pull back and reattach sagging skin and surgically tightens the muscle. But facelifts do not address the need of the aging face for added energy to all the cells in the skin and muscles. As we age, all the cells in our bodies loose the ability to create as much energy as they need to do their work. Facelifts do not address the quality of the skin or keep the underlying muscles from becoming lax again. Microcurrent adds much needed energy for the overall surface AND underlying structure to maintain optimal health with or without a facelift.
