Beauty and Appearance
Microcurrent treatments use low levels of electric current (sub-sensory currents) to treat many issues including nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and other health challenges. It is now widely used in the skincare industry for facials that lift, tone, and re-educate the muscles of the face while improving skin tone and texture.
How Microcurrent Works
Each tissue type in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Research has shown that external sources of electricity can be beneficial for improved health by helping the cells maintain normal cell behavior. Microcurrent treatment restores normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.
At the cellular level, microcurrent stimulates a dramatic increase in Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also triggers the body’s production of amino acids, necessary for tissue repair. The increased blood flow to the area, as well as a decrease in inflammation reduces pain and improves function.
Microcurrent - A Non-Surgical Facelift
Often called a non-surgical facelift, microcurrent facials are extremely popular with many benefits and few contraindications. The treatment is not aggressive or invasive and feels very relaxing to the client. A water-based gel or water is used to conduct the current as the skin care professional moves probes or gloves very specifically around the face. The muscle may be “lifted” and held in place for a few seconds.
The results are evident from the first treatment and many clients will complete a series of treatments to lift and tone the face or to improve skin conditions such as acne. There is increased blood flow, lymphatic drainage, stimulation of collagen and elastin, increased product penetration and a lifting of the muscles. It is compared to “taking your face to the gym” and multiple sessions yield better results.
Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrents are so weak that they don’t stimulate the sensory nerves, so you feel no shock-like sensations. In the United States, microcurrent may not cause a visible muscle contraction.
Microcurrent therapy is safe, FDA-approved and has no significant adverse effects.
NOTE: People with pacemakers, seizure disorders, cancer, or who are pregnant, should not use microcurrent.
If there is a question on whether or not microcurrent is appropriate for a certain condition, please check with a medical professional for direction advisability of treatments.
