What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is a low-level electrical current that mimics the body's natural electrical impulses. It was originally used to treat Bells Palsy in the early 1970s and then transitioned to treating the bodies ability to speed up wound healing in the 1980s. We now see microcurrent widely being used for esthetic purposes. With so many devices on the market. With consistent use, this gentle and non-invasive treatment has been praised for its efficacy and numerous benefits.
Benefits of Microcurrent
1. Rejuvenates the Skin: Microcurrent stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining youthful and firm skin. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
2. Improves Muscle Tone: By targeting the facial muscles, microcurrent helps to improve muscle tone and lift sagging areas to a degree. It can sculpt and contour the face, giving you a more defined jawline, lifted cheeks, and firmer neck.
3. Enhances Circulation: The electrical currents used in microcurrent treatments increase blood circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells. This promotes a healthy glow and improves the overall health of the skin.
4. Reduces Puffiness: Microcurrent can help to reduce puffiness and under-eye bags by improving lymphatic drainage. It also stimulates the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which helps to eliminate toxins and reduce dark circles.
How Often Should You Use Microcurrent?
For optimal results, it is recommended to start with a series of treatments close together, such as once or twice a week, for the first 4-6 weeks. This helps to build a foundation and achieve noticeable improvements.
After the initial series, you can gradually reduce the frequency to once every 4 weeks for maintenance. Consistency is key to maintaining the results and preventing the natural aging process from undoing the progress you've made.
