What is a Microcurrent Facial?
Definition: A microcurrent facial uses low-voltage electricity to stimulate the facial muscles, like a “workout” for the face. The goal is to encourage the muscles to look more defined, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cell growth, and collagen development.
Microcurrent is a non-invasive facelift and is a excellent alternative to Botox. Microcurrent uses low-level electrical current to tone, tighten, and lift the muscles. It’s essentially exercise for your facial muscles. It will retrain your facial muscles to stay in a more lifted position, so it’s a really incredible treatment for keeping skin looking youthful. Microcurrent can be used to lift the eyebrows, define cheekbones, tighten and firm skin, and stimulate collagen growth. Microcurrent facials tighten and smooth the muscles and connective tissues in the face by increasing cellular activity, and have been shown to reduce wrinkles. Microcurrent has been around for many years, especially in physical therapy, so it is very safe treatment that is effective.

Who can use microcurrents?
Microcurrent is excellent as a preventative treatment. If you start it in your 20s before your face starts to drop, it can help keep everything lifted.
Why microcurrent treatments work and how long the effects last
The low level electrical current increases the production of ATP which powers cell growth. Cell growth is what boosts collagen and elastin. Microcurrent helps to re-educate the facial muscles to stay lifted and toned and increase circulation. Results can be seen immediately. It’s best to get a microcurrent treatment every 4 weeks for maintenance.
How does it reverse signs of aging?
As we get older, collagen production and cell growth slows down. Microcurrent helps to reverse that process by increasing the cell growth and boosting collagen for more lifted, youthful looking skin.
Where can you get a microcurrent machine?
Health Technology manufactures a machine called the Microderm which uses microcurrent and galvanic technology. We will cover galvanic treatments in a future blog post. Check out our Microderm on our website.
