What is a Microcurrent Facial?

Few facial treatments can give you the immediate results you get from a microcurrent facial. This facial “workout” tones facial muscles while leaving skin smooth and glowing. Best of all, you will see some results right away, while others will continue to develop over the following weeks. A microcurrent facial offers one of the easiest and most painless methods of facial rejuvenation. 

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.

What Results Will I See With a Microcurrent Facial?

Some results can be seen immediately after treatment. You will see lifted brows, a smoother forehead, and a more contoured jawline and cheeks. Treatment also helps with lymphatic drainage, reducing fluid buildup and puffiness. Because the microcurrent facial stimulates blood flow to the skin, you will also see skin look healthier and more vibrant right after treatment. 

Over time, the electrical stimulation triggers the skin to produce more collagen, a vital structural protein. This enhances your results by improving skin firmness and tone, reducing lines and wrinkles, and giving the skin a more youthful appearance. Treatments are recommended anywhere from once a week to once a month to maintain your results and continue stimulating collagen production. Your results will improve with each treatment as your muscles become more toned and your facial collagen structure becomes firmer and more supportive. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Microcurrent Facial?

Most people make good candidates for a microcurrent facial since the electricity is not strong enough to cause any damage to the skin. People with pacemakers do not make good candidates for this treatment. If you have any questions about other conditions you have, please feel free to ask during your consultation. 

Is There Any Downtime With a Microcurrent Facial?

Very few procedures let you walk out looking younger and brighter than when you walked in. A microcurrent facial leaves no redness, bruising, or soreness, so you leave looking lifted, toned, and refreshed. You can resume all activities right after treatment with no limitations.
