THERE IS NO MAGIC wand for beauty and aging – but there are two. At least, that’s what we’re convinced of after a few months of visiting Mila Morgan’s studio to receive weekly rounds of medical grade microcurrent.
The non-invasive, age-erasing treatment requires no recovery time and provides results (instantly, for many) that rival some of the top plastic surgery treatments available. Sound too good to be true? We thought so at first – but having been surprised by the world of natural wellness many times before, we were willing to give this obscure beauty modality a try.
Mila of Studio Beau Visage is one of very few practitioners offering the rare medical grade microcurrent technology. Her patent pending treatment goes a step beyond other microcurrent machines you may have encountered at the spa. Mila uses two wands – tuned with various low level electrical currents – to gently prod the face and body to miracle-like effect: Think of those high profile ladies that appear not to be aging at all, and yet don’t look frozen or mysteriously… off.
We’ll be nerding out on this nearly-magiacl technology in two parts, beginning with its incredible beauty and anti-aging effects…
The Body electric: According to Mila, “Our entire body is electrical. Our hearts, brains and neurotransmitters. Our body runs on 500 microamps (Ua) and that is what I am introducing back into the body to reboot the electrical system. Microcurrent emulates our bodies’ electrical properties precisely.” Mila considers each treatment session as a “reboot” for the body’s fine electrical system, each session building on the previous.
Cellular health: Adenosine triphosphste (ATP) which is the energy chemical for all cell function, is increased by 500% after treatment. Scientists have found that microcurrent treatments trigger the body’s production of amino acids and ATP, accelerating cell repair and promoting healthier cell production, making it a highly-healing, restorative and regenerative treatment.
Collagen + elastin: Some studies show that the cellular changes brought upon by treatment allow the body to produce collagen and elastin again – and not only that, but to store it long-term. Research also shows that the new collagen and elastin are better quality than the original. Collagen is 10% thicker, elastin fibers 45% stronger. The storage of collagen and elastin is key in the treatment’s ability to stave off aging.
on Inflammation: Microcurrent has a deeply anti-inflammatory effect which is one of the things that makes the treatment seem “too good to be true”. Inflammation is at the root of many beauty issues from puffiness and skin tone issues to acne and lax or sagging skin. By boosting circulation and reducing inflammation to the face, microcurrent fights many of these issues at once.
The treatment: Mila offers clients are offered eight sessions of medical grade microcurrent for the face. In our experience, the effect is visibly lifting and immediately calming from the first session. The cumulative effect of eight sessions is designed to rival the effects of a surgical facelift and impressed us completely. In a client’s 20’s, the treatment is preventative, but later in life it can be used to strengthen muscle and skin to dramatic effect.
On Botox + all that jazz: Botox reduces wrinkles and provides a lift by actually paralyzing muscle. Microcurrent does the opposite and can actually correct any issues caused by long-term Botox use. Looking to wean yourself off of the stuff? Microcurrent may be just the treatment to try to reduce your chemical load and still enjoy lifting and smoothing.
Our Take On Tech: Microcurrent and technologies like it are what we hope the future of beauty and wellness look like. While the tech might be unfamiliar or even confounding to some, we’re committed to learning more about the tools that can replace the conventional fillers, surgeries and other rather dramatic procedures so many are using today that provide no health benefit what so ever.

I’m in my 20s and used to look like a teenager until I visited this studio. The microcurrent killed fat cells in my face that kept me looking youthful. Now I look over 30. This supposedly preventative treatment made aging that might have happened over the course of 5-10 years happen in an hour. This woman either doesn’t 100% know what she’s doing or makes her money off of duping people through sleek press like this. Maybe it’s helpful for older people, but if you still look young and want to keep it that way, DON’T GO HERE.
Thanks for your input Maria. We always recommend consulting with your doctor before any alternative procedures. Our experience with Mila was exceptional and we encourage readers to learn more about microcurrent!
I am in my 60’s and since I’ve been a client of Mila Morgan no one can believe I’m remotely close to that age. I started with Mila 14 months ago when my oldest daughter gave me a gift certificate. I was particularly intrigued because I’ve become wary of fillers and invasive procedures (with bruising, downtime and inconsistent results.) Micro-current therapy is completely different. I cannot say enough good things about Mila’s professionalism, expertise, knowledge and what seems seriously like MAGIC. The results are astounding. Since I’ve become a client I’ve referred 7 clients (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s) and they’ve all become hooked. Mila’s procedures are unlike any I’ve tried before (and trust me, I’ve tried them all.) Her Micro-Current Therapy is painless, and actually can reduce or eliminate aches and pains. I’ve used micro-current therapy on my face and body and honestly it’s like Mila can turn back the clock. Mila’s only requirement to make her procedures work is that clients drink a lot of water. Everything about Mila’s procedure feels NATURAL and HEALTHY. I tell everyone who asks to GO THERE!
I am just turning 30 and started with Mila 3 treatments ago. I have to say that I completely disagree with Maria above. I am young and petite and look pretty young as it is, people mistake me for 21 and I’ve even gotten 17 90% of the time so I am more so doing this as preventative. I have been absolutely loving microcurrent with Mila. I live out of town and this is no exaggeration, I am on her 8 week schedule and I fly in and out literally once a week just to get my treatment. Luckily it’s only an hour flight but still a hassle and I still keep going. That’s because I love it so much. I am also thin and petite but this had not changed the fat composition of my face whatsoever so I am not sure what the above review could possibly be referring to – also after one session it’s impossible for that big of a change – while microcurrent is powerful and I’m not saying it is not but one session simply does not do that make or make lasting changes until you keep going to do the actual rebooting Mila swears my. After my 3 sessions I have noticed some lifting and more plumpness and overall improvement but I realize it more now after 2 people I am close to said whatever you are doing, I want to do it your face looks amazing!! I don’t have wrinkles for the most part but it did smooth out those fine lines starting where I crinkle my forehead and definitely made a huge difference around my mouth and jaw area where I’ve noticed gravity starting to take effect haha. Honestly I CANNOT WAIT to do all 8 sessions and to see the results – I am already incredibly amazed by just 3. There are no ill effects just imporhvment and restoration of everything we want in our faces! It also has even had some major mood boosting and stress dealing effects – I really am amazed and tell everyone about Mila’s microcurrent!! You have to try this if you are wanting something way more holistic and beneficial for you than fillers and Botox but with absolutely amazing results.

Over a year ago, I was lucky enough to receive a gift certificate to Mila. I was excited to use it because I had seen incredible results on the person who gave it to me. On meeting Mila, I was impressed with how knowledgeable and professional she was. I feel I am in such capable hands and I love the results. My skin seems tighter, smoother and overall improved. I am thrilled that this is a natural treatment and actually good for you. I have tried many things and this for me is one that I want to continue doing forever!
