For those wanting to avoid scalpels and needles but still want youthful, glowing skin, a microcurrent facial is a go-to treatment. While the effects are not as dramatic as a face-lift or Botox and fillers, microcurrent facials can improve the negative effects of aging such as drooping, saggy skin, and wrinkles. Studies have shown that microcurrent facials have many therapeutic benefits such as inflammation reduction, promoting wound healing, improved muscle function, and improved circulation.
Microcurrent facials use a special handheld device that delivers tiny electrical currents to the face, which stimulate both the skin and the muscles. The aim of microcurrent facials is to improve the appearance of the client’s skin and face overall. Microcurrent facials require no downtime, as they don’t use any anesthetics or invasive processes that require healing. This is great for those with busy schedules who want a rejuvenated appearance without interruption.
The idea behind the microcurrent facial is that the electrical currents will build up facial muscles, in effect lifting and tightening the skin. Other benefits have also been found, such as improved sinuses and improving the state of atrophied muscles. While microcurrent facials are not considered dangerous, they should be avoided by people who have epilepsy, heart conditions, or implanted medical devices such as pacemakers.
