A microcurrent treatment, also known as microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation, consists of gentle electric stimulation of muscles and tissue. During a microcurrent facial your skin cells as well as facial muscles will be targeted to tone and rejuvenate your face.
Electric stimulation will make your facial muscles more taut, much like muscles in your body after a workout. This leads to a firmer skin and toned facial features. Gentle electric current is also known to increase blood circulation, production of collagen and elastin, and glycosaminoglycans.
Microcurrent facials can be done at any time before a special event, but to enjoy the long term rejuvenating results, treatments at regular intervals are recommended. We suggest starting with six or seven consecutive weekly visits, and then once doing a microcurrent facial once a month.
Microcurrent Facials are painless procedures and the effects last for about 48 hours. This makes them perfect for special events. The toned and taut facial muscles make you look younger and more awake, as does the more even skin complexion caused by increased blood circulation.
Regular treatments lead to long term benefits, such as improved skin structure and elasticity. A skilled esthetician can even sculpt your face to achieve things like more facial symmetry, or more arched brows. Microcurrent facials are therefore sometimes recommended by plastic surgeons as a non invasive alternative to botox injections.
