Benefits of Microcurrent Therapy: A Brief Overview
Let's dive into what everyone wants to know - how a microcurrent facial can help you put your best face forward.
1. It Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
A 1975 study published in the British Journal of Dermatology showed that your skin's collagen content decreases by 1% every year. Thankfully, Microcurrent enhances your skin's adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. This helps boost collagen and elastin synthesis. As a result, it helps to slow down and replenish the loss of natural collagen in your skin.
Microcurrent enhances your skin's adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, which in turn, stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis. As a result, this facial treatment helps to slow down and replenish the loss of natural collagen in your skin.
Research has even shown microcurrent increases elastin production in the skin by as much as 45% and collagen thickness by roughly 10%. This is why so many people love microcurrent as a way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
2. It Re-Trains the Facial Muscles for Improved Facial Contour
As we age, the muscles in our skin naturally become weaker, which leads to sagging skin. This is where microcurrent facials come in to save the day.
As mentioned above, microcurrent facials boost ATP production. Not only is ATP essential for collagen and elastin production, but it is the primary source of energy for muscle movements.
This means that by increasing ATP, microcurrent re-energizes your facial muscles to improve muscle tone. It is quite literally a workout for the face, but on a very small scale!
With this some improved facial contour, reduced skin sagging, and more jawline definition after continual treatment.
Remember when we said microcurrent facials help to boost ATP production? ATP is not only essential for synthesizing collagen and elastin. It is also the primary energy source for muscle movements.
What this means is that by increasing ATP levels within your body, a microcurrent facial helps to re-energize your facial muscles to improve muscle tone. Think of it as a form of "face gym" to get firmer facial muscles. As such, you get to enjoy improved facial contouring such as reduced skin sagging and a more defined jawline after the treatment.
3. It Boosts Blood Circulation to the Face While Reducing Facial Puffiness
Aside from enhancing collagen production and muscle tone, microcurrent can also increase blood circulation to the face.
Because the currents travel deep through the skin to reach the muscles, they hit lymph nodes along the way. Microcurrent has also been shown to aid in lymphatic drainage. The result? It helps to reduce facial puffiness for better facial contour.
4. Immediate Results With A Cumulative Effect
There's a reason Microcurrent has earned the name "At-Home Face-Lift". The immediate results experienced right after treatment include firmer, toner skin and a glowing complexion.
However, it's important to note the cumulative effect that these benefits have too. Facial improvements are longer-lasting with regular treatments. Microcurrent combined with regular consistency is the best way to see better jawline contour over time. But you have to stick with it!
5. It Is Relatively Painless
Botox and fillers can be painful and much too invasive. Surgery can be a huge commitment that not everyone is ready for. But with microcurrent, you never have to worry about a needle or knife touching your skin.
The low-level current feels like a tingling, painless sensation on your skin. It can be quite relaxing, especially when paired with a late night treatment sessions.
