What makes ELR so special?
The magic of ELR™ is the use of color combined with microcurrent done simultaneously. Microcurrent lowers the resistance in the body’s energy pathways so light, color and energy can travel. Color is how the body communicates on the cellular level. Your skincare or wellness professional can choose from 12 customized colors to address your specific needs.
For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines at least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD). The Chinese discovered and utilized ways to change the energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. According to a famous Chinese axiom, “Where qi goes, blood flows.” Even for those unfamiliar with the principles of Chinese Medicine, it is known that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better. Rather than masking outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction within the body, Chinese Medicine treats the underlying cause of why someone is aging.
Now we can do this without needles, without pain, and without bruising!

What areas do you work on?
Acupuncture, muscle points, wrinkles, discoloration areas. There are 57 muscles in the face and neck that this treatment tones through microcurrent stimulation. This energy is delivered directly where it is needed to balance the body and bring forth your innate beauty with results that go beyond any other non-surgical treatment.
Who does the treatment?
This is performed at our clinic by Dr. Ansari, licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine.
How long does it take?
It takes about 50 minutes.
What other effects do people notice?
Clients often report “side-benefits.” If you energize the body via the face, you can’t help but increase the energy of the entire body. If you put water in one side of a lake then the whole lake rises. The face is a “micro system” that is an area on the body that represents or affects the entire body. The foot (reflexology), hand (Korean Hand Acupuncture), ear (auriculotherapy), eye (Iridology), cell (DNA) and the FACE are all microsystems.
Do you notice effects quickly?
Most people feel and see the benefits of ELR™ after the first treatment. Even more noticeable results occur after three treatments. Dramatic results are seen after 10.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with ELR treatments. You can have consecutive treatments to speed up results.
Can I do it for a special occasion even if I don’t do a series?
Yes, You can even have ELR™ treatments the same day as a big event, and be radiant all night.
How long do results last?
Lasting results with any medical, health or cosmetic procedure vary with overall health, age, and lifestyle. However after an initial series of about 8 to 18 sessions maintenance can be once every month or 2. Think of your body as a battery. When we do ELR we are recharging your battery. The better the chemicals in your battery the better you hold your charge. That is why in our office we also treat the whole body using diet, herbs, homeopathy, chiropractic and electro-acupuncture also using the same instrument, the Acutron Mentor.
How is this different from a face-lift?
A face-lift is a whole different matter. It is quite invasive, there is healing time, and it can be very painful. Obviously we are not cutting and pulling the muscles on your face. We increase the vitality of the muscles of your face so you look like a younger, brighter, more rested version of yourself.
While not a replacement for surgery, Facial Rejuvenation is an excellent alternative. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. There is no trauma from Facial Rejuvenation, unlike surgery, which may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration. While Facial Rejuvenation cannot reshape one’s nose or chin, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off one’s face – safely and naturally – while improving overall health.
How is this different from other facial electrical devices?
Typically most electrical devices that are used on the face is milli-amps (1/1000) of an amp. An amp is the amount of current. 1/1000 of an amp is A LOT of power. You will know this because it actually makes your muscles twitch. The theory is that you are exercising the muscle.
ELR is quite different. We use much LESS current. 1/1.000.000 of an amp. This is the type of current your body uses so the body accepts it like food. Also this is the only device that uses micro current and light simultaneously.
How was ELR discovered?
The device that we use called the Acutron Mentor has been used for many years by acupuncturists, chiropractors, physicians, physical therapists and other wellness professionals for pain management and the treatment of various conditions. It is an extraordinarily effective modality for meridian balancing, healing acceleration and non-needle acupuncture.
After a physician treated a client for Bell’s Palsy paralysis with microcurrent, the client came back and asked that the same treatment be done for the other side of her face. She noticed a dramatic difference in her appearance. On the treated side, facial lines were much softer, her skin had a firmer tone and appeared lifted, and her eyes were more open. These incredible results were repeated, and as the development of microcurrent facial rejuvenation progressed, our researchers became aware that the visible results weren’t merely superficial. Additional benefits were occurring beneath the skin. Clients told us they were feeling better, calmer, and enjoyed a vibrant sense of wellbeing!
How can I get maximum results? For maximum treatment results, we suggest:
8-18 consecutive treatments (higher numbers required for the elderly, smokers or those with more pronounced skin problems)
2+ treatments per week
How can I maintain my results?
One of the best ways to maintain results is to have a healthy lifestyle. Get good quality sleep, drink pure water, detoxify your body regularly, laugh, reduce stress, take enzymes with each meal, and don’t eat sugar. There are so many things I can list here. The fact is health starts from within. If you need help in those areas we can address them as well.
The better hydrated you are and the better your body can hold minerals the better it can hold an electrical charge. That electrical charge is what shows on your face. It is the glow; the Chinese call it “Shen”.
– ELR™ treatments every 4-8 weeks
– ELR™ treatments are recommended prior to special occasions and events such as weddings, anniversaries, vacations, holidays, parties, etc.
– Consume plenty of water, especially in the days leading up to a ELR™ treatment, as this increases the conductivity of the microcurrent treatment
Can I benefit from ELR if I am young?
Clients in their 20s-30s can benefit from ELR™ — ELR™ keeps the skin healthy by working on the cellular level
Factors That Contribute To The Aging Process
Pollution, makeup and/or poor cleansing habits can block pores; use a gentle yet effective cleanser twice a day. Clean skin is the first step to beautiful skin!
The sun provides us with warmth, energy and supplies us with Vitamin D. However, overexposure to the sun can be harmful. Protect skin by using a sun block with at least SPF 15 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Wear sunglasses, a hat and protective clothing when possible, and opt to sit in the shade.
Dry climates can make certain skin types thirsty. Select the right moisturizer for your skin’s needs. Treat your whole body, not just your face. Smoking, alcohol, drug use and caffeinated beverages take their toll. Make healthy choices. Sleep well. Sleep rejuvenates the body and the mind. Most of us don’t get enough.
What is the ACUTRON MENTOR? The Acutron mentor is a new and revolutionary system of electronic and light based acupuncture. Of course it is technically not acupunture because it does not puncture the skin (all the better for you). It is more like electronic acupressure. This system utilizes modern computerized electronics at microcurrent levels. Low levels of microcurrent have been shown to reduce inflammation and increase the tissue rate for tissue repair, thus accelerating healing and reducing pain.
How much does it cost? The price for this very special treatment is $250 per treatment.
We have discount packages as well:
4 treatments is $890
8 treatments is $1500
Special offering of one full 1 hour treatments session and one half an hour followup for $375 for the month of Summer.
