Microcurrent Facial



What is frequent specific microcurrent?

At Essential Spa we utilize the Acutron MentorTM Frequency Specific Microcurrent Device (FSM) with 12 LED color light options in addition to customized microcurrent settings. FSM originated in the Holistic Health industry in Germany in 1940. Brought to the United States to study patients with Bell’s Palsy, Microcurrent was used to maintain the health of the subcutaneous facial tissue during prolonged facial paralysis. Like many studies, known benefits, or side benefits were not anticipated.  Over time microcurrent continued to show a reduction of facial inflammation, swelling, sagging skin at the jaw and around the eyes. Lines were visibly reduced, softened, and the structure of the face was more youthful and symmetric.

Microcurrent is a non-invasive medicinal and calming treatment that uses low-level “micro” electrical current that mimics the natural electrical current of the cells in our body’s physiology.  As we age, we go through life’s stresses, our bodies internal systems respond to these stressors.  FSM Microcurrent can rebalance our body’s electrical current to a healthy and synchronized balance.

All matter is made of atoms. Negatively charged atomic particles called electrons vibrate and spin in orbits around the nucleus of atoms and, in doing so, produce electromagnetic energy. Because water is a conductor of electromagnetic energy and because the human body is approximately 70% water, people are susceptible to electromagnetic field changes. Each tissue and organ in the body has its own unique frequency, as do specific conditions and pathologies. Healthy tissues conduct a bioelectric current throughout the body that is altered in the presence of injury or disease. The abnormal vibration is not only determined by which tissue is afflicted (muscle, fascia, tendon, bone, etc.), but also by the type of condition (inflammation, injury, infection, stress, toxicity, etc.). Frequency-specific Microcurrent matches the frequencies of the tissue involved and the condition to neutralize the frequencies that are out of balance; FSM can restore normal frequencies within the cells.

Microcurrent How it works

Proven Benefits of Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Painless Approach To Youthful Look

Microcurrent enhances your skin’s ATP and stimulates collagen and elastin production. As a result, this facial treatment helps to slow down and replenish the loss of natural collagen in your skin. Collagen development leads to the classic youthful appearance associated with a natural glow by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition to improving collagen production and muscle tone, FSM microcurrent facials also increase blood circulation to the face. At a cellular level, this improves nutrient and oxygen supply, resulting in a more vibrant, rejuvenated complexion.

 It is important to ask questions when you are seeking a Microcurrent practitioner. Not all machines are created equal. Many skin care Microcurrent machines are static in the sense they have pre-set buttons that the Esthetician has to use in every Microcurrent facial on every client with the same non-changing settings. With the AcutronTM  the Esthetician is in control of the settings and uses Frequency Specific combinations for your bodies and skins specific needs. 

As in working out, you have to change up the workout our your body will not continue to respond, it will plateau, not budge. It is crucial to change what you’re doing, and what you’re challenging your body to do to get it out of its comfort zone. This is the same with Microcurrent treatments, FSM is a crucial part of choosing the correct practitioner with the correct machine. Your time, your money, make sure your ability to progress is part of the conversation. 

The practitioner and equipment you choose is crucial for your skincare progress. If the equipment is static, cannot be customized at every treatment, your skin will stop progressing over time. Your time and money are important, the practitioner and device is key to your continued out come.


Your Microcurrent Questions Answered

How many microcurrent treatments will I need to see results?

Holistic Skincare procedures like Frequency Specific Microcurrent are cumulative, they need to be done in consecutive treatments to achieve the best results. Depending on your age, use of effective topical skincare products, your overall health, all play a part in how many treatments you will need.


Starting these treatments your 30’s is ideal, treatments can be as little as 2-5 for cumulative benefits. Clients over 40 in general will need 5-10 cumulative treatments.  Over the ages of 50 in general will need 10-15 cumulative treatments. Maintenance is necessary to retain your results, like working out at the gym. Maintenance treatments can be done 4-6 weeks apart.

Will you see a difference after your first Microcurrent facial?

In many cases you will see a change in the heaviness of your full face, a more balanced structure in your eyelids, and cheeks. Your overall face will look refreshed. Strange to contemplate, your mental calmness and overall mood is balanced.

Can you get a Microcurrent facial when your getting fillers or Botox?

If you are spending money on fillers and botox, I suggest you avoid FSM Microcurrent treatments, the micro- current will move your fillers. That said, if you are stopping Botox, and other fillers, Microcurrent will dissipate all coagulations of debris in your tissues. This can be a fantastic treatment to move through the end of Botox and fillers.   

How long does the Microcurrent facial session take?

A full facial session is about 75 minutes. Area-specific add-on treatments, eyes, lips, and cheeks are faster. Just remember, if you’re going to commit to FSM Microcurrent and only do your eyes your overall facial health and balance will not be complete.

Can I do other treatments when getting my Microcurrent treatments?

Yes, many times a facial is done prior to the Microcurrent. Many of our clients utilize several treatments leading up to a special occasion, wedding as a guest, and the brides. The combinations are endless.
