It seems as if the market is constantly flooded with new products, devices, and procedures that promise to take years off of your appearance. One thing that has stood the test of time in the battle against aging is the facial. A facial is one skincare procedure that consistently yields great results in making your face appear younger. But what happens when skincare and technology combine? You get an amazingly effective anti-aging treatment known as a microcurrent facial.
What Is a Microcurrent Facial?
Some refer to a microcurrent facial as a non-invasive facelift. It consists of all of the standard components of a typical facial, with an added feature. You’ll get a deep cleaning, steam, extractions, a high-frequency treatment, and then an added microcurrent lifting treatment that lifts and sculpts the face.
How Is a Microcurrent Lifting Treatment Performed?
Your face will be prepped with a special gel and then the wand of a small machine that produces low-grade electrical microcurrents is passed carefully and methodically over your face. The treatment will target areas that need to be tightened, toned, and sculpted.
How Do Microcurrents Work?
All of the muscles in your body are controlled by electrical currents delivered by your nervous system. The microcurrent treatment bypasses this system and sends an electrical current straight to your facial muscles causing them to contract. This essentially exercises the muscles, tightening and training them thereby lifting and sculpting any saggy or loose areas. The treatment also helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to improve skin tightness, firmness, and elasticity.
Is It Time-Consuming or Painful?
A microcurrent facial takes about the same amount of time to perform as a regular facial. The microcurrent lifting treatment is fast and totally painless. You may experience a tingling sensation as the wand is passed over your face, but it should not hurt. It’s recommended to have a microcurrent facial monthly for the best results, so it doesn’t require a big time commitment long term.
