What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry and is used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all.
It is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger looking appearance.
How microcurrent facials rejuvenate the face?
Microcurrent treatments manipulate the 32 different facial muscles with the application of low-level electrical current. This form of therapy has been used medically for many years, addressing injuries safely and effectively. When performed for aesthetic purposes using specific techniques, the microcurrent treatment provides benefits such as:
Improvement in circulation in the face
Healthy lymphatic drainage
Better penetration of skin care products
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
Improved definition in the jawline by lifting the jowls
Improved tone in the muscles of the face and neck
Accelerated cellular repair through the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and amino acids
Microcurrent facial treatment is an extremely safe and gentle. The results can vary by individual and skin type. Most patients can expect to see immediate improvements of skin tightening / lifting and rejuvenation.
For the best long-term results it it highly advisable for clients to complete a series of treatments, two or three treatments a week for about four weeks, followed by a maintenance.
What happens if I stop using the Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is like an exercise regimen, if you exercise for some time and then stop the positive effects are not retained and your body again becomes unfit. Similarly, the effects of Microcurrent are cumulative. If Microcurrent treatment sessions are not followed up with maintenance sessions, the extra energy (ATP) stored in the cells is replete and the skin starts showing signs of ageing all over again.
Is it a new technology?
No, it is a very old technology which was initially used for wound healing treatment of non-union fractures and bone implants during World War II. Later on in 1960’s it was used for the treatment of Bell’s palsy and now a days it is an extremely popular technology to treat skin aging.
How soon will I see some improvement?
Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative, and as such, microcurrent treatments are typically performed in a series to gain maximum anti-aging results.
