Have you ever wondered about the secret behind Kate Winslet, Jennifer Aniston and Oprah Winfrey’s age-defying skin? The answer is a microcurrent facial. They admittedly book treatments on a regular basis. If you are looking to reduce facial puffiness, define your jawline or look fresh for a special event, try a microcurrent facial.
Despite all the anti-ageing products and treatments out there, it is impossible to actually stop or reverse ageing. Botox fillers erase lines and wrinkles temporarily but there is also the danger of atrophy from repeated injections. Invasive treatments, nips and tucks involve pain and severe discomfort, often leading to unnatural results. Here is where microcurrent facials score.
Microcurrent facials lift the facial muscles naturally; improve muscle tone; reduce puffiness by draining fluids, increase cellular activity and enhance facial contours. The result is healthier, firmer, fresher skin texture, no matter what your age. Best of all, the treatment is painless.
How Does A Microcurrent Facial Work?
Microcurrent technology is not new. It has been around since the 1800s, treating damaged tissues and muscles. The facial found fame in the aesthetics industry when a doctor noticed that the treatment worked wonders on a Bell’s Palsy patient, improving the texture and tone of the skin.
The treatment involves sliding two handheld prongs emitting extremely low-voltage electrical currents or “microcurrents” on a cellular level to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to repair damaged skin. The electrical currents are so minimal that it would take a million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb.
Simply explained, it is similar to a workout for the face, as it breaks down skin cells in the inner dermis layer to allow the upper epidermis layer to grow back stronger with healthy cells, just the way muscles do after an intense workout. At the end of the treatment, your skin feels visibly smoother, firmer to the touch and well rested, with no layover redness. The treatment needs to be repeated a few times for lasting results.
Who is Suitable for a Microcurrent Facial?
A microcurrent facial boosts collagen production by up to 14%, increases elastin by 48% and boosts blood circulation by 38%. It is ideal for anyone who wishes to improve the tone and texture of their skin. The treatment is anti-ageing, safe and suitable for all skin types and colours. Similar to other facials, the treatment involves cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating and massaging your face. Avoid the treatment if you are pregnant or suffer from any kind of heart disease, allergies or skin sensitivities. The entire process takes from an hour to 90 minutes. You can go back to work right after, glowing bright, looking fresher than ever.
It takes a few sessions to see lasting results. After the first, you will enjoy firmer skin. Your jaw line will be more defined; your eyes will look brighter and less tired. For long lasting results, you may need about 10 to 12 treatments every week. If you have never had a treatment before, results may vary depending on your genetics, home care supplements, etc. Just make sure you consult a certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician specialized in microcurrent treatment for proactive, customized results.
