WHAT IS A MICROCURRENT FACIAL? 

Microcurrent technology is a safe and non-invasive therapy that sends out gentle and low-voltage current to stimulate the facial muscles, like a “gym workout” for your face. The low voltage current is nearly identical to the natural electrical currents in our body to drive the creation of collagen and elastin in the skin. 

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MICROCURRENT FACIALS? 

  • Erases signs of aging 

Microcurrent facial is considered a natural face-lift and non-toxic Botox alternative. It tightens the facial muscle and connective tissues, leaving you with a healthier complexion that makes you look younger. 

  • Reduces facial puffiness

Microcurrent facial impacts the lymphatic system besides erasing signs of aging. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that helps to reduce fluid retention and remove the body from toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials. Microcurrent facial triggers the lymphatic system, helping to relieve puffiness and swelling. 

  • Helps product penetration

When conductive serums or gels are used with microcurrent therapy, the ingredients of these serums will penetrate more deeply and effectively into the facial tissue. 

  • It is safe and painless

Unlike other forms of anti-aging treatments, microcurrent facials are non-invasive and pain-free. Feel free to sit back and let it work its magic - increasing cellular activity, reducing puffiness, and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

 

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR FIRST MICROCURRENT FACIAL TREATMENT 

  • All skin types and tones are safe for microcurrent, however, people with pacemakers, metal implants, or open sores should avoid the microcurrent facial. 
  • Use with conductive gels or serums is a MUST as it helps to transmit the electric current from the device to your facial muscles and deliver an effective microcurrent facial treatment. 
  • Aftercare: Be gentle with your skin after microcurrent facials. Apply only mild & gentle skincare products and lots of hydrating moisturizers after treatment. 

 

AT-HOME DEVICE VS. PROFESSIONAL 

If you are receiving a professional microcurrent facial treatment, the cost of a single session could range anywhere from $200-$500, depending on your area of the country. On the other hand, there are also many at-home microcurrent devices in the market for a very reasonable price with more flexibility and personalization. They may not give you the same effects as a professional treatment, still, at-home devices are great alternatives for everyone looking to regularly treat their skin to microcurrent technology. 

Both professional & at-home treatment requires long-term commitment, just like a “gym workout”. The recommended frequency for professional treatment is once every 4-6 weeks, depending on your age and skin condition. At-home treatment can be performed multiple times a week for 5-15 minutes a day.
