Microcurrent is commonly described as facial toning or non-surgical face lifting due to the lifting effect on facial muscles.
But what is a microcurrent facial?
The treatment consists of the use of small electrical probes around your face and neck. This passes a teeny electrical current into your skin. This ‘micro’ current mimics the natural bioelectricity in our cells in a way that stimulates skin and muscle cells on your face and neck to tone and tighten. Microcurrent is almost identical to the delicate, low-intensity electrical current already in your own cells. And because it’s so small you nearly can’t feel it.
Microcurrent Anti-aging Facials
Several sources say it was in the 1970s that doctors using Microcurrent Therapy to treat Bell’s palsy noticed a rather interesting side-effect; their patients’ skin tone was improving, and their wrinkles and lines were less pronounced. Interest grew in the beauty industry, and consequently many medical instrument manufacturers switched to marketing cosmetic machines.
Microcurrent facials use two hand-held electrode prongs delivering a microamp (μA) dosage of electrical current to your face and neck. It harnesses the same healing power as Microcurrent Therapy, stimulating your cells and increasing production of ATP. And ATP is very important especially in aging skin.
As an aesthetic treatment, microcurrent stimulation has been shown to have many cosmetic benefits:
toning and strengthening of facial muscles
increases blood and lymph circulation
Boosts the production of ATP
Stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and amino acids
Helps cells to eliminate waste products
Restores healthy cell balance
Improve skin tone and texture
Decrease puffiness and inflammation
Reduce lines and wrinkles
Lift sagging jowls and droopy eyelids
What does a microcurrent facial feel like?
You should not feel any discomfort or pain, just the cool metal wands lifting sections of your face and staying put for a few seconds and repeating before moving to the next section. Generally, microcurrent is extremely safe due to its noninvasive nature but we recommend that those who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, electronic implanted device, have epilepsy/seizures or active cancer, avoid using microcurrent.
It's also recommended to wait 3 to 4 weeks after using fillers or Botox to get a microcurrent facial.
