FaceMaster -- is it effective and safe?

I want to buy the FaceMaster by Suzanne Sommers. I wonderabout this device which uses electric microcurrent.. I've read blogs that rave about how well it works butI've not been able to find out much about the safety aspect. It comes with two wands which you use to message the face as they deliver the microcurrent. I'm concerned about the safety of the brain and the eyes. Is the electric current, which probably reaches the brain even on low dose, safe! Apparently the FDA approved it but does that mean it is safe for the face as well as other organs in close proximity? Thanks in advance for any light you can shine on the Face Master.
