In the anti-aging community, finding the next best non-invasive treatment is always on the agenda. From miracle creams to risky procedures, there are tons of options available, even some that are almost too good to be true. Recently, the microcurrent facial has been growing in popularity in the beauty community. Some have even dubbed it as a great alternative to Botox and celebrities have been raving about the treatment as well.
So what exactly is microcurrent facial technology and what can it offer you? Here’s the rundown on microcurrent therapy and how you can take advantage of it.
What is a microcurrent facial?
Known as a non-invasive facelift, microcurrent facials introduce a low-grade electrical current to the facial muscles through a small machine. The procedure is simple, fast and the best part is that it’s absolutely pain-free and there’s no downtime as well. The easiest way to think of it is as a workout for your face.
So what exactly is happening during the treatment? For starters, it’s worth noting that microcurrent has been used medically for years. As an FDA-approved treatment, it has been used to treat patients with facial paralysis due to stroke and Bell’s palsy. The therapy was used to help heal injured tissue faster and provide pain relief to chronic conditions or injuries.
After noticing a significant improvement in the appearance of the face after treatment, the therapy began to become developed for anti-aging purposes. This is how the popularity of the microcurrent facials came about.
Today, regularly scheduled microcurrent facial treatments are said to help sculpt out the fact, tighten sagging skin, and even help with the production of collagen. These are all pretty spectacular results for a totally pain-free experience.
If you happen to be interested in getting a microcurrent facial yourself, then here are the top benefits that you may experience upon undergoing the treatment.
The 5 Proven Benefits of Microcurrent Facial Therapy
Say Goodbye to Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Considering that microcurrent therapy has become all the rage in the beauty world, it would only make sense for the top benefit to include anti-aging properties. In fact, one of the biggest benefits is the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Microcurrent enhances your skin's adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, which in turn, helps to stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis. This then helps slow down the natural loss of collagen in your face. This active production of collagen is responsible for many of the benefits you’ll immediately see in your face. With more collagen in the face, you can expect to see plumper and naturally smoother skin with regular microcurrent appointments.
Stronger Facial Muscles
It’s interesting to note that as we age, the muscles in our face become weaker. When the muscles in the face become weak, this leads to sagging skin. Just like any other muscle in the body, it’s important to keep them engaged in order to keep them strong. Microcurrent facials help combat weakening facial muscles, thanks again to the production of ATP. As mentioned, ATP is essential for synthesizing collagen, however, that’s not the only thing! ATP is also one of the main sources of energy for muscles. By increasing ATP production, microcurrent technology is, in turn, helping to create stronger facial muscles. This is what helps to create that chiseled and defined look of the face after the treatment.
Improved Blood Circulation
Having good blood circulation is important for your body and that’s especially true for your face. Just like the rest of our body, our skin depends on oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to replenish it.
If your skin has been looking dull or saggy, then getting more blood pumping into the face is a great way to combat that. Along with increasing collagen and helping to ‘workout’ the muscles in the face, microcurrent therapy is also great for increasing blood circulation to the face. As more blood is pumped into the face, the face will become more radiant with a plump and flushed appearance to the skin. Along with adding oxygen and nutrients to the skin, as more blood is pumped into the face, it also takes away wastes and carbon dioxide that the face no longer needs.
Immediate Results & Instant Gratification
Unlike other treatments where visible results take time to show, with microcurrent therapy the results are instant. After the treatment, you may immediately notice a defined jawline, less sallow skin, a brighter complexion, and even a reduction in fine lines around the forehead or eyes. Overall, these results also continue to last longer and have more noticeable changes the more often you follow up with the treatment. The trick with microcurrent therapy is with the cumulative effect. That means that the best anti-aging results come from having a follow-up session every few weeks. However, many are willing to follow up with a consistent routine mainly because of how immediate the results are.
No Pain & No Downtime Needed
Finally, one of the biggest benefits is the painless process. Many other forms of anti-aging procedures such as Botox, fillers, and facelifts are often invasive, painful, and may even require you to take time off to recover. With a microcurrent facial, you don’t have to worry about needles, knives or any other types of chemical peels that may irritate your face. In fact, the entire procedure is simple and offers great results without irritating the skin. Many even state that they feel relaxed throughout the entire process.
