Has your face been feeling dry, dull, or puffy?
Do you wish you could refresh your visage with a defined jaw, improved contour, and give yourself back that youthful glow? The microcurrent facial, touted by high-end celebrity aestheticians, can achieve these results and more, including more prominent cheekbones and plumper-looking skin.
Often referred to as a gym workout for your face, Microcurrent Facials can produce supple, and flexible skin after only one treatment. The treatment doubles as a lymphatic drainage massage and keeps your skin firm and healthy.
Utilizing a microscopic electrical current, the microcurrent facial treatment trains your facial muscles into a firm and lifted state. Also known as a “non-invasive facelift” a microcurrent facial takes years off of your appearance and you see results immediately after your first treatment.
As far back as the 1980s, the microcurrent technique was FDA approved to treat conditions including muscle paralysis and Bell’s palsy.
After observing significant improvement in patients with sagging or atrophied facial muscles, beauty experts adopted the technique as an anti-aging tool. A microcurrent facial is a safe, and painless treatment used for decades in physical therapy and is now available to help you restore a more youthful appearance.
As we age our body’s production of collagen decreases and our skin loses elasticity and volume and elasticity Microcurrent has been shown to activate the production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), which acts as a catalyst for the creation of structural proteins like collagen and elastin.
The tiny current administered in the microcurrent facial treatment stimulates your facial muscles and acts as a workout for your face. The resulting effect smooths and tightens the connective tissues in the face and increases cellular activity. The treatment has been shown to reduce wrinkles around the face, particularly in the forehead.
The microcurrent facial is a multi-step process that includes facial cleansing, facial exfoliation, the microcurrent treatment itself, and application of serums. A thin layer of conductive gel is applied to the face before a microcurrent treatment is performed.
The device is then passed over areas of the face. The treatment is not painful, you may experience the sensation of the cool metal wands lifting areas of your face for a few seconds at a time as the various sections of your face are treated. The sensation has been compared to a zen spa session, and most find it rather relaxing. You should not experience any discomfort. Best of all you will be able to see your results in minutes!
If you have heart issues such as a pacemaker, you may not be a microcurrent facial candidate. It is also not recommended for anyone suffering from severe acne. Women who are pregnant and in their first trimester are also cautioned against this treatment.
Patients who have had botox or fillers should wait at least two weeks before receiving a microcurrent facial. Though after that two week period a microcurrent facial can improve your botox or filler results by making them last longer.
It is recommended you receive a microcurrent facial once a month for the optimal effect. Though some patients are so elated by their results that they elect to have their microcurrent facial treatments done weekly!
