What is Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation?
Microcurrent Facial is a type of skin tightening procedure which helps to tighten and tone the skin, so as to bring back the suppleness of your skin. This is a treatment where a machine sends electrical impulses of very low voltage but high frequency through the skin. This has two pronged effects on the skin – it triggers cell production, thus, leading to formation of new layers of skin which can replace the damaged ones on the surface. It also leads to stimulation of collagen formation and remodeling which helps to tighten the existing layers of skin.
How Does It Work?
The micro-current that is passed acts on the facial muscles and the superficial skin tissue. It stimulates the facial muscles by generating a slight amount of vibration. This is what helps to tighten the skin of the muscles. It is claimed that when this therapy is used it leads to prevent the formation of frown lines and so, prevents the onset of facial signs of aging.
Benefits of Microcurrent Facial
Due to the mini workout that is rendered to the facial muscles, micro-current therapy sculpting helps to improve the tone of the facial muscles and also improves the facial muscle’s blood circulation.Due to the significant improvement in muscle tone, the skin looks tighter and more supple. Microcurrent Facial sculpting also leads to mild skin exfoliation and improves lymphatic drainage. This helps to prevent the face from looking swollen due to the edema. It is said that micro-current therapy also aids in lightening out scars and pigmentation marks that may be present, as there is mild skin exfoliation that occurs as well.This beauty treatment also helps to tighten pores and lighten blemishes and slight scars.
What are the other benefits of Facial Toning?
Many surgeons are encouraging older clients to have facial toning treatments before surgery because it helps boost muscle tone, speeds recovery, and help maintains the effect of plastic surgery after the patient has fully recovered.
Experience the benefit of a one time Facial Toning Treatment prior to a special occasion. Your skin will glow as re-hydration and circulation improves while the contour lift remains for several days after one session.
Facial Toning is a great addition to any facial, and can also be incorporated as part of our Customized Facial. We often recommend treatment before major events to quickly improve the skin tone, elasticity and firmness.
More Frequently Asked Questions about Microcurrent
Q. Is the procedure safe?
A. The system is completely safe and treatment is non-invasive. The current is extremely low, less then the output of a pacemaker. The system operates on a per-programmed setting and contains calibrated internal data monitoring and resistance meters. This allows full comfort to the client as well as optimal performance and results for the operator.
Micro-current treatments are usually performed within 45-60 minutes, and are usually prescribed in a series of 6 to 12 treatments over a course of 60 days with one to two treatments a week recommended for maximum results. The number of sessions in a series is specific to each client. Once the series is complete, a monthly “booster” treatment is required to maintain results.
Our non-invasive treatment usually offers noticeable results even after just one session and effectively gives you the benefit of a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. Although surgery is much more effective, not everybody is ready to make that decision.
Like exercise for the other parts of the body, the facial muscles need a regular workout to achieve good muscle tone. Muscle re-education by microcurrent is often referred to as “sculpting” and “lifting.
Q. Is the procedure painful?
A. This procedure is not painful. Some clients experience a tingling sensation during the session. Also, might have some lights behind the eyes. Most find it comforting, relaxing, soothing and often fall asleep.
Q. How often must I have the procedure done?
A. The lifting and strengthening action have an accumulative effect on the face with each systematic series of treatments, increasing the holding action of the muscles. Through repeated sessions, facial muscles will hold their tone. Just like the stomach muscles will “re-tone” after repeated sessions of sit-ups. During the initial program, we recommend one to two visits a week with the total number depending on the individual needs. A typical course of treatment will range from six to twelve sessions. And after that a visit once a month is usually all that is required to maintain good facial muscle tone and youthful appearance.
Q. What will happen to my face if I stop the sessions?
A. When you stop exercising the body, over a period of time the muscle will lose their increased tone and return to a more flaccid state. The same is true for the face. It will not suddenly “fall,” but overtime will begin to resume its normal aging process.
Q. How soon will I see the results?
A. Most individuals will see immediate changes in facial contour after the first treatment. Your skin specialist can lift half of your face to show you the difference compared to the other side. But the improvement is increasingly obvious over a period of time with the series of sessions. Results depend significantly on the individual’s age and lifestyle.
Q. How do I get started?
A. Start with a consultation. During your consultation we can answer any remaining questions you might have, discuss the degree to which aging has affected your facial muscles and skin tone, and recommend an individual program addressing your specific concerns.
Individuals with the following should not receive micro current: Pacemaker, Pregnancy, Thrombosis, Phlebitis, Epilepsy, Cancer.
