Microcurrent is a treatment which can be used to naturally rejuvenate the face. The principle behind microcurrent is that it emits minute electrical impulses which are
similar to the electrical impulses that are produced by healthy cells and tissues.
When cells or tissues are not working properly as a result of aging, pain, or disease, the electrical impulses that they emit are altered. By providing a current which mimics healthy cellular current to the affected area, the microcurrent stimulates the cells and tissues to function more optimally. By stimulating sagging muscles of the face and neck, the microcurrent may be able to trigger a tightening effect, giving the face a more lifted appearance. The microcurent's electrical impulses may also normalize the tone of muscles that are too tight, which may decrease the appearance of furrows caused by chronic muscle contraction. Over time, the stimulating effects from microcurrent may also trigger the skin cells in the face and neck to produce more collagen, thereby decreasing the appearance of wrinkles. Microcurrent facial rejuvenation can consequently refresh and rejuvenate the look of the face naturally and healthily. There is no downtime, no discolouration, and no pain. The effects are seen gradually over time—so every step of the way is a natural and gentle process.
The benefits of microcurrent facial rejuvenation may include:
Diminishing the appearance of facial lines, creases, and wrinkles;
Increasing hydration to the face, making it look smoother and softer;
Increasing lymphatic drainage and circulation to the face, contributing to a youthful glow to the skin, lessening puffiness, and reducing discolouration; and
Contributing to a firmer and more contoured appearance to the face.
An initial time commitment of four to twelve 1-hour sessions, occurring 2-3x/week is recommended for optimal results. The precise number of treatments, frequency of the treatments, and treatment results will vary based on age, lifestyle, and personal goals.
