History of Micro Current

Carlo Matteucci
1811 – 1868
The history of Micro-Current, as per the EMS but with different evolutions, goes all the way back to 2500 B.C. where the Egyptians under the Fifth Dynasty discovered an electric fish that could be used in the treatment of pain.

As we've said in the EMS paragraph, records also show that in 46 A.D. the Mesopotamian physician Scribonius Largus prescribed the “Seashore Treatment” for patients who suffered from acute pain.

For the treatment the patient placed a foot on a species of fish which used mild electricity as defence (the electric eel) and the other foot on wet sand thus completing the electric circuit.

In 1830 Carlo Matteucci discovered that injured tissue in the human body discharged electricity and since that discovery, over 120 years ago, many experiments with Micro-Current have been done to validate his findings.

However, it was the accidental discovery of a physician treating Bell’s palsy patients for paralysis that lead Micro-Current to become integrated into the aesthetic field.

He noticed that the face of his patients were smoother and they appeared much younger looking after treatments.

Micro-Current was later introduced to the beauty industry as a non-surgical alternative and with today’s technology Micro-Current can effectively improve the over all health & appearance of the client’s skin while fighting the battle of aging non-invasively often referred to as ‘non-surgical’ facelift.

What actually is Micro Current?


Micro-Current is an exact amount of electricity that mirrors the body's own natural current and works in harmony with the body's electrical system.

It is so slight that it would take one million Micro-Current machines to light a 40 watt light bulb and therefore perfectly sub-sensory.

Micro-Current is the process of a gentle ‘re-education’ of the fine facial muscles by stimulating them with very small amounts of electricity.

These Micro-Current impulses trigger a chemical reaction at a cellular level to increase the effectiveness of how our bodies use ATP Adenosine triphosphate a protein that is referred to as ‘The Energy of Life’.

Micro-Current mimics the electrical signals from the brain to the message centre of the muscle, the Tendon.

This action stimulates the Tendon therefore aiding in strengthening the muscles by bringing more definition to the face and by reproducing the body’s own biological current we can re-establish muscle memory naturally.


How does Micro Current work?


Micro-Current works on expression aging by causing the muscles to flex and relax which is an effective method of ‘re-educating’, strengthening, firming and toning slack, sagging muscles.

Micro-Current improves blood flow and increases the supply of vital nutrients to the muscle tissue and individual muscle fibers improving the tone and quality of the skin.

By improving blood circulation the overall health, function and appearance of the skin is greatly enhanced.

For muscles to contract they need energy, which comes from ATP Adenosine triphosphate.

ATP is the only energy source that muscles have to power their activity and these muscle fibers store only a limited supply of ATP.

So, by increasing the supply of ATP, the main energy storage and transfer molecule in the cell, to these muscle fibers Micro-Current plays a crucial role in cell metabolism and n plumping up those slack muscles.

Micro-Current also enhances Fibroblast Activity (Collagen) and Protein Synthesis (Elastin) because of the increased activity of ATP.

Skin with fine lines or wrinkles, sagging muscles or lost elasticity is simply damaged.

Micro-Current has the ability to restore the lost energy to the tissue and thereby turn back the hands of time on all of us.

The facial muscles and skin are being given a workout that stimulates Collagen and Elastin production, which are known to be two essential proteins needed for the skin to remain youthful and glowing.


A Micro-Current 'facial' is in essence a non-surgical facelift!

Studies conducted by Emil Y Chi, PhD, director of Washington’s Department of Pathology at the University of Washington using Micro-Current resulted in a

  • 14% increase in production of natural collagen

  • 48% increase in natural elastin

  • 38% increase in blood circulation.
