Facelift Without a Knife?

A microcurrent facial is often referred to as a “natural” facelift. This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles, while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity, and tightens pores. The overall result is healthier and younger looking skin. There is no downtime, and you can immediately go about your day.
A microcurrent facial emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents, which mirror your own body’s electrical currents, on a cellular level to repair damaged skin, and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb. This treatment is often referred to as “facial toning” because it’s like a workout for your face. Skin cells are broken down and then grow back stronger, the same way your muscles do after lifting weights. It works simultaneously to repair collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis, the top layer of your skin. According to studies, a microcurrent facial can increase collagen production up to 14% ,while elastin increases 48%, and blood circulation goes up by 38%.
A microcurrent facial is ideal for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin — whether they are more focused on an anti-aging or preventative treatment — because it covers all the bases. It is safe and effective on all skin types and skin colors. However, pregnant women and people with any kind of heart condition should avoid this treatment.
Results are cumulative, so after a series of sessions there are many improvements and they are longer lasting. For sustained results, the recommended course of treatment is a series of 12-15 treatments within the first 6 weeks followed by a maintenance treatment once a month.
Kate Winslet, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Oprah Winfrey are reportedly all fans of microcurrent facials.
