Electric currents have been incorporated into facial machines for many years. The research and development conducted to assist the baby boomers in maintaining a youthful appearance has promoted their evolution to the highly efficient apparatuses we have at our disposal today. Understandably, there is a great deal of interest around the muscle enhancement abilities of micro-currents. Many esthetic professionals are successfully marketing these treatments as non-surgical lifts.

The combination of different variations of currents allows these machines to show great results in tissue enhancement and repair. The currents vary in the time they take to peak, whether gradually or quickly. The time the current remains peaked will also vary, as will the time the current takes to subside. The variation in the current and frequency can be concentrated on specific tissues and adapted to the individual needs of each client. The micro-currents utilized produce different effects on the muscle and the tissue of the skin.

Micro current machines can be used to improve the muscle reception and re-educate the muscle to respond more effectively to regular nerve stimulation. The desired relaxed state of a muscle is semi-contracted, allowing it to function effectively.

The micro-currents can help bring this memory back to the muscle, giving better tonus to the face and relaxing over contracted muscles. To the client this means a firmer facial tonus and diminished lines. The other major benefit of micro-current stimulation is the enhancement of tissue repair. The circulation is improved providing better cellular exchange and regeneration.

Nina G., as she likes to be called, is not your average esthetician - on the other hand she is like many creative, artistic souls these days, multi-talented and wearing many hats. She hails from NYC like her email states "nycredhead" started as an actress, then turned writer and has worked as a personal organizer, private chef, landscape designer/gardener and created her own handmade jewelry line. All this, before, in-between and since she went to beauty school and then started her own exclusive beauty facial-toning business. She calls that Nina-face, touting "You too can have a Nina face."

Her layered method of applying various forms of stimulating and relaxing electrical devices is extraordinary. Lifting, toning and tightening while healing, calming and hydrating, leaving one with a buzzy, toned glowing complexion. She clearly adores the caring and nurturing, has a ton of energy and loves to give. As she puts it, "in one day I will be making my Nana's lasagna for 12, do 3 face clients, write an article for the magazine, interview someone on Skype or at Starbuck's for an upcoming issue, water my garden and a plethora of house plants, put in a load of laundry, cuddle my cat, make a pair of earrings for a birthday present and answer a dozen emails about all the above. And that's before the dinner party arrives to a perfectly set table and a nice Barolo."

Blissful Skin is her branding and her passion for life and esthetics is her lifestyle. She has just finished her first novel, "Part Bambi - Part Buick."
