In brief: Peels help skin

Peels come as deep, medium and superficial.
The deeper the peel the more discomfort and down time one has. Superficial peels can provide good results if done with frequency. Melange peel is a deep peel for pigment problems or the mini melange is no down time but great for pigment and on ethnic skin. Using daily skin care products to exfoliate the skin and depigment it are just as critical.

In brief: Frivolous fun

Micro current face lifts are loved by celebrities but clearly offer no lasting improvement of the face.
If you are looking for a fun and frivolous spa treatment, knock yourself out but don't expect any change in your appearance.

In brief: Not common/needed

The value of a micro current facelift has not been substantiated in my opinion.

In brief: Nobody needs one

As a plastic surgeon who has been performing facelifts for over 25 years, I am pretty confident in saying that there is no lasting benefit to a microcurrent facelift.
The only benefit will be to the person who collects money for this procedure.

In brief: No one "needs" it

I would recommend consultation with a qualified facial plastic surgeon if you are considering a micro current facelift.
That technology is not really proven at this point in time, and i would warn you that you may be disappointed with the results your surgeon should listen to your concerns about your appearance and recommend the best options to achieve the results you desire.
