While we are firm believers of it’s what's inside that matters, we also feel that there is nothing wrong with enhancing your exterior in whichever way you see fit to make you feel your best. So when we learned that Jill Black, a holistic health practitioner, microcurrent facialist, and energy healer, relocated from New York, we booked an appointment for a microcurrent facialist to see what all the buzz was about.
Upon meeting Jill in her Wynwood location, which is flood with natural light, we got situated, and then she began to clean our face with micellar water. Then she applied a gel that was a mix of aloe, hyaluronic acid, and peptides, which acts as a conductor for the microcurrent wands. After massaging the gel into our face and chest, Jill explained that she will do three passes with the wands over our face and décolleté, each pass with a stronger pulse of microcurrent that she ensured we wouldn’t even feel.
Micro-current stimulates your skin to make its own fibroblasts of collagen and elastin, and the small pulses of microcurrents simultaneously exercise the muscles of the face, resulting in a tighter more lifted appearance. It also helps to restore the convexities of the face, counteracting the sagging, drooping muscles, and wrinkles that occur when we age. Basically, it fills out your face in the best possible way.
If the thoughts of small electrical pulses scare you, don’t fear, you will not feel a thing, other than a soothing wand or gentle massage. The entire experience was super relaxing. If we weren’t so busy chatting Jill’s ear off about our shared passion for holistic lifestyle as well as her other service that intrigues us like muscle testing, we could have fallen asleep.
When we were finished we were beyond thrilled with the results. Our skin was tight, toned, and lifted and remained in this state for a few days. For the best results, Jill recommends five treatments, one per week, and then once a month for maintenance. Single sessions are $250 and a package of five is $1200.
A few pointers before you book: drink a lot of water the day before as it helps the conduction of electricity and enhances the treatment by allowing your glow to linger longer. Also, if you’ve recently had Botox or fillers, you need to wait two weeks before you book your appointment.
