The microcurrent facial involves the use of safe, painless, low-level, waveform-shaped currents (electrical impulses) which work to “reprogram” the muscles to nearly original muscle shape. The gentle electrical impulses actually rehabilitate the muscles and improve circulation, texture, tone, and fine lines. Regular use of microcurrent will continue to provide muscle strength and restore freshness to appearance.
Microcurrent “recharges” facial tissue. It works by combining a unique electrical waveform using dual tipped probes, in combination with a conductive gel and the naturally occurring biological current of the body. This technology has the capacity to work internally on the muscle fiber and tissue for visible, external results – it's almost like taking your face to the gym! The combination of different frequency variations allows these machines to show great results in tissue enhancement and repair. The frequency variation in the current can be concentrated on specific tissues and adapted to the individual needs of each client. The microcurrent utilized produce different effects on the muscle and the tissue of the skin.
Microcurrent facial machines can be used to improve the muscle reception and re-educate the muscle to respond more effectively to regular nerve stimulation. The desired relaxed state of a muscle is semi-contracted, allowing it to function effectively. The microcurrent can help bring this “memory” back to the muscle, giving better tonus to the face and relaxing over contracted muscles. To the patient this means a firmer facial tonus and diminished lines.
Benefits of Microcurrent Facial Treatments:
• Improves facial and neck muscle tone
• Lifts jowls and eyebrows
• Rejuvenates & regenerates the skin
• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduces puffiness
• Evens out skin tone
• Improves facial circulation
• Aids in skin exfoliation
• Increases lymphatic drainage
• Increases product penetration
• Acts as a sun damage treatment
• Reduces cellulite
• Enhances the body’s natural collagen and elastin production
• Re-hydrates skin
• Increase cellular metabolism (ATP)
• Improves hormonal balance which aids in the successful treatment of acne
• Allows for an easier make-up application
• Tightens enlarged pores
Microcurrent delivers a variety of benefits to patients who wish to maintain a more youthful looking appearance and is an extremely safe and gentle non-invasive alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive treatments. The results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just "happen" over night. Although microcurrent facial treatment has been known to produce an immediate and temporary rejuvenating effect, continued maintenance will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results!
