Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation
Energy Light rejuvenation (ELR) is a unique healing technology that combines low intensity Microcurrent electrical stimulation with specific colors of therapeutic light. It is an advanced form of microcurrent facial rejuvenation.
Using a combination of color light therapy and gentle Microcurrent, ELR is applied using moistened cotton tipped probes to treat the muscle , skin and acupuncture points on the face. The result is a more toned face, reduced lines and wrinkles and reduced puffiness Because the acupuncture meridian system connects the entire body. Points on the face have connections to all other parts of the body. Using ELR on the face has wide reaching effects throughout the entire body. Everybody is different but some reported effects have been: better, more restful sleep, improved digestion, increased sense of well-being and weight loss.

History of Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation
Microcurrent facial rejuvenation began after a physician treated a patient for Bell’s Palsy (one-sided facial paralysis) with microcurrent. The client came back and asked that the same treatment be done for the other side of her face because she noticed a dramatic difference in her appearance on one side of her face, the one treated with microcurrent. The facial lines were much softer, her skin had a firmer tone and appeared lifted, and her eyes were more open. These results were repeated on the opposite side. Microcurrent facial rejuvenation was born.
Microcurrent is electric current in millionths of an amp. It often used to relieve pain, increase the rate of wound healing, increase protein synthesis, stimulate the regeneration of injured tissue and stimulate lymphatic flow. Because Microcurrent flows at one millionth of an ampere it is very similar to current the body produces on its own in each cell and the electricity that runs our nervous system and muscles.
Microcurrent has been used successfully for decades for pain management and the treatment of various medical conditions. It is an effective modality for meridian balancing, healing acceleration and non-needle acupuncture for needle sensitive patient.
The ELR system was developed by Dr. Darren Starwynn, an acupuncturist and microcurrent researcher. ELR works in harmony with the body’s natural energy systems. According to Dr. Starwynn, the lifting and rejuvenation effects take place through the adjustment of facial muscle tone, Colagen production, detoxification and cleansing of the skin, and stimulation of the acupuncture meridian system.
By combining specially selected colored light to the correct acu-points of the body, the specific needs of each individual client are effectively addressed. The combination of microcurrent and colored light provides positive and lasting results. I use the Acutron Mentor. According to Dr. Starwynn, “Both microcucurrent and light help restore the energy circulation and communication within the cells of the body. The amount of aging we see in our faces is in direct proportion to the blockage and reduction of this energy communication in our bodies.”
What are the expected results?
Most clients notice positive changes in their faces after the first session. A series of sessions is required to re-educate the facial muscles, boost collagen production and rejuvenate the facial tissues and energy systems.
How many sessions are required for lasting results?
Each person is different, for most clients, 8-16 sessions over a 5 to 7 week period will provide the most long-lasting effect. Patients under 40 years of age will generally need 10 treatments. Clients over 40 tend to need 15 or 20, depending on skin condition. Patients in their 30’s can begin treatment as a preventative measure to slow the aging process; this works on a cellular level to keep the skin healthy. People who smoke and do not live a good lifestyle may require more time.
How do I maintain the results?
To retain the full benefits, you should receive a maintenance treatment every 4 to 8 weeks, after completing the initial series. The frequency of maintenance sessions depends on age and skin condition.
