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.

The High Frequency Facial has gained its great popularity not without a reason - nowadays it is used to treat acne vulgaris, hyperpigmentation, skin puffiness as well as visible signs of skin aging including fine lines and wrinkles. After all, it has been developed by such a renowned scientist as Nikola Tesla. While first it was applied to manage wounds, sore throat and similar infections, in 1892, almost a century after Tesla’s invention, French biophysicist Jacques-Arsène d’Arsonval pioneeringly introduced the technique to treat skin and mucous membrane conditions. That is why High Frequency is traditionally called „Tesla Current” or „D’Arsonval High Frequency”. What does exactly happen during this facial and why is it so good?

Red light therapy is a skin treatment that doesn't use ultraviolet light. Instead, it uses skin-safe, low-level light in different wavelengths. Red light stimulates skin cells called fibroblasts. These help make collagen, which are important parts of skin recovery. Some studies have found that red LED light therapy tightens skin, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and makes skin smoother and softer. ‌

EMS vs Microcurrent: Which one to choose?

September 20, 2021

Who would not like a firm and youthfully sculpted face… With age, collagen and elastin gradually break down what puts a significant strain on skin’s integrity - aging marks begin to occur. Simultaneously, the epidermis gets much thinner while the connective tissue is drastically weakened - the facial muscles become loose as the thinned out epidermis starts to hang, contributing to the face’s saggy appearance. Luckily, techniques like EMS and microcurrent exist and can provide us with the exact effects that we want. What is the difference between them and which one should you go for?
