Q. How long will my results last?
A. The effects of microcurrent are immediate and cumulative. Clients go through a series of treatments followed by regular maintenance to keep a more youthful appearance. Each time a treatment is performed the new contour maintains its position better and longer.
Q. Are there conditions that can prevent me from being able to receive microcurrent treatments?
A. There are certain contraindications that will preclude microcurrent treatments. Individuals with autoimmune disorders, diabetes, cancer, embolism, epilepsy, melanoma, metal implants (including plates/pins/screws), open wounds, pacemakers, phlebitis, pregnancy, thrombosis, and varicose veins should not receive microcurrent. Use of Botox®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and any other injectable must be disclosed prior to treatment.
Q. How does microcurrent compare to treatments like Botox?
A. Unlike other procedures, Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is 100% pain free, totally relaxing and has no known risks or side affects. With comparable results to procedures like Botox, Juvederm and Restylane, Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is capable of attaining a huge variety of anti-aging results using one safe and natural process. Many other procedures involve significant pain that may require pain relievers, anti inflammatory medications or antibiotics that could compromise the client’s health. Often times, the end result of surgical face lifts is longer than expected recovery time and an unnatural look because the skin is too tight (“the surprised look”).

A. The cost of Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is as low as $75 per session and has a 98% client satisfaction rate. The average price of Botox is $500 per treatment with a 68% client satisfaction rate. Juvederm costs an average of $650 per treatment, and also has a 68% client satisfaction rate. Restylane costs $675 per treatment on average, and 66% of clients are satisfied with their results.*
Q. What if I just want to feel rejuvenated or to look good for a special occasion?
A. Micro-Lift is perfect for a quick pick-me-up and an instant lift lasting up to several days. Bio-Lift is excellent for longer term results and also as a post-surgical healing treatment to maintain the lift and treat blood stasis, scarring, and numbness. We advise you to consult with your plastic surgeon, and have him/her communicate with us before starting this treatment.
