There is a growing trend towards the desire for non-surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation. In some cases, this is due to medical limitations, while in other cases, time or finances may be a factor. A microcurrent facial repositions tired muscles and sagging skin, while stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. Thousands of men and women have experienced the relaxing and rejuvenating effects of microcurrent facials with results that are truly remarkable.

What is a microcurrent facial?

A microcurrent facial is a procedure that uses an extremely low voltage electrical current to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, while re-educating facial muscles. The procedure also increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which acts to detoxify and rehydrate the skin.

The current is so slight it cannot be felt, and is equivalent to one millionth of the power it takes to power one 40 watt light bulb. Not only is a microcurrent facial painless, patients report they experience an enhanced feeling of relaxation during treatment, and more importantly, they see improvement almost immediately.

What is so important about collagen and elastin?

Collagen and elastin are the proteins that provide substance and elasticity to the body’s tissues. Collagen plumps up the cheeks and adds youthful fullness, while elastin allows tissues to return to their original shape when stretched or moved.

Over time we lose both collagen and elastin, which causes sagging skin and wrinkles. Sagging skin creates hollows in the cheeks and emphasizes deep lines around the lips.

Loss of collagen and elastin also causes deep ‘laugh lines’ to form and the resulting sagging skin creates the appearance of tiredness and age.

Restoring collagen and elastin to tissues effectively turns back the clock to our more youthful selves. A microcurrent facial stimulates the natural production of these two proteins, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How does a microcurrent facial work?

Using a specialized machine, minute electrical currents are directed at specific muscle groups to activate reactions at a cellular level. The muscles of the face are re-educated to return to a higher more youthful position, and as the series of treatments progress, facial muscles maintain this position for longer periods of time. This results in re-hydration of the skin, lifting of jowls, eyebrows and cheeks and tightening of loose skin.

How many treatments are needed?

A Lasky Aesthetics professional evaluates each person and recommends a series of treatments based on age, condition of the skin and personal goals. For example, people over forty might receive an initial series of 12 sessions every one or two weeks, with maintenance treatments once every 4 to 6 weeks.

Am I a candidate for a microcurrent facial?

Due to the non-invasive nature of microcurrent facials, most adults can benefit from this procedure. People in their twenties and thirties use microcurrent treatments to prevent early signs of aging. Those with visible signs of aging and surface damage rely on microcurrent facials for rejuvenation.

Microcurrent treatment is not recommended for:

  • Pregnant women
  • People with Pacemakers
  • People who have had heart surgery within a year
  • Epileptics

If you are not a candidate for microcurrent facial, our treatment team can offer alternatives to this procedure. The first step is to come in for an initial consultation. At Lasky Aesthetics, every patient receives a unique program designed to rejuvenate and restore youthful vigor.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
