What is a Microcurrent Facial?
A microcurrent facial uses a low-voltage electrical current to stimulate the facial muscles to contract. This process gives the skin immediate lift, leading some people to call it a non-invasive facelift. In addition, it refreshes and rejuvenates the skin to give you a healthier-looking, brighter complexion. We find that people love the instant results and the pain-free experience, and they also love the steady improvements they see after multiple treatments.
How Does a Microcurrent Facial Work?
While many of us have a routine to keep the muscles of our bodies toned and fit, most people never think about facial muscles. Microcurrent facials can become the missing piece that keeps your facial muscles tight and sculpted. The microfacial device “trains” your muscles to hold your skin in a more lifted, firm position.
A microcurrent facial sends a painless electrical current through the skin, causing the underlying muscles to contract. Like a workout, these contractions make the muscles stronger and give them more definition. Unlike a workout, a microcurrent facial can take only ten to twenty minutes, making this the fastest and easiest muscle toning possible.
What is a Microcurrent Facial Treatment Like?
A microcurrent facial uses a wand with a double tip. A low-voltage current flows between the tips, transmitting energy to the muscles. You will have a water-based conductive gel applied to your face to carry the energy from the wand to your skin. Some people feel a slight tingling sensation, but the treatment is comfortable and safe. You may feel your muscles contracting, which some people describe as a tugging or fluttering sensation and which can feel a bit odd, but not unpleasant.
