“A micro current facial involves the delivery of safe, painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to rehabilitate, firm and tone the facial muscles on both an immediate and long-term basis. As we age, our electrical impulses can slow down causing aging and sagging facial skin.”
They say it’s like a facelift without the knives. I agree.
While the procedure is uncomfortable, it is 100% bearable.

Since the electricity zaps the bacteria on your face, it is sensitive around your mouth, nose and eyes. She starts low and adds power with each pass. The great thing is I have complete control of intensity levels.
