Microcurrent: Non-Surgical Facelift and Anti-Aging Facial Treatment
Microcurrent is for everyone, especially those looking for a natural way to look younger without invasive medical treatments. Even younger clients will love the effects as it helps to hydrate, even skin tone and drive essential products to deeper levels of the skin.
Benefits of Microcurrent:
- Improve muscle tone in face and neck.
- Lift and tone the jowels, and eyebrows.
- Reduce fine lines and tighten pores.
- Assist in lymphatic drainage and increases circulation.
- Drive products deeper into skin, allowing for better absorption of vitamins and minerals.
- Increase collagen and elastin production, by triggering the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (or ATP, a chemical that transports energy within cells).
How it works:
Microcurrent is a low level electric current that activates and engages the skins naturally occurring chemicals. It is safe and painless and the current is so low it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40 watt light bulb. Depending on direction of use, it re-programs muscle which allows the fibers to lengthen or shorten . Microcurrent has both instant and cumulative results. It provides firming and toning benefits that continue to improve with frequent treatments. Microcurrent triggers the production of ATP in skin cells and increases collagen and elastin production. This firms and tightens the areas you want it most. The stimulation also assists in lymphatic drainage and increases circulation. This achieves the goal of a facelift without costly and invasive surgery.
The origination of this machine was a physical therapy tool to strengthen atrophied muscles. It was made into a facial machine when the anti-aging benefits became apparent. Now, microcurrent is used in the most popular spas and facial treatment centers.
What to expect during a session:
The session starts with a skin consultation to determine the desired results. To prepare the skin for treatment, the face, neck and chest is cleansed. Next, a conducting gel is applied to the face just before the microcurrent begins. Microcurrent uses two hand held devices with two small metal probes on each end. The specialist moves the devices in a specific sequence to lengthen or shorten muscles depending on location. The conducting gel and hand held microcurrent probes feel cooling and hydrating. Most people report little if any sensation and is completely pain free. If you do experience a sensation it’s likely to feel like a faint tingling. After the treatment, a toner, serum, moisturizer and eye cream are applied. A typical session lasts about an hour.
Frequency and pricing:
You will see instant results after your first session but this treatment works best as a series. If you want to look and feel younger on a day to day basis, this is a fantastic treatment. It is also perfect for people getting ready for a special event. The recommendation for long lasting anti-aging effects is a 4-6 week regimen. In this case, book sessions twice a week for 8-12 sessions. Book once-a-month maintenance treatments after completing a series. That said, microcurrent does not have to been done in a series but single sessions can show benefits as well. Micro current improves hydration and increases circulation. It also improves muscle tone in the face and neck and you will leave feeling bright and fresh after one treatment.
