The Science Behind Microcurrent

We're debunking the most common myths about microcurrent AND answering your most asked questions to make sure you have all the microcurrent information you need to get the best results!

Top Questions Asked by Customers

Q1: "Is stronger microcurrent better?"

No, stronger microcurrent is not better. You might be tempted to think that because microcurrent strengthens the facial muscles, that stronger = better. However, the facial muscles are very delicate. Overstimulating facial muscles has actually been shown to lead to the appearance of sagging skin. For the best results, staying under a 600-microamp threshold is best. 

Q2: "Is it painful?"

No, microcurrent is not painful and isn't meant to be. The level of microcurrent needed for proper stimulation (under 600microamps) is too low to cause pain. While you may feel a slight sensation, it's not pain-inducing because of how little current the device produces.

Q3: "Are there side effects?"

With adequate space and timing between treatments, you should never experience any side effects after a microcurrent facial. However, you may experience some side effects if you either 1) do excessive treatments (more than 1x per day for several days in. a row) or 2) use microcurrent which is too strong. Thankfully, practically all of the microcurrent devices on the market are not strong enough to produce a current that could cause any side effects. 

Debunking Microcurrent Myths

True or False: Microcurrent delivers instant results.

True! There's a catch, however. Microcurrent devices are capable of delivering instant results that you can see and feel in just one treatment. But these results don't last forever; they can AND will go away. Just like fitness, long-term results take dedication and consistency. The best part of an at-home device is that you can always start up again even if you miss a few treatments.

True or False: I don't feel anything, it must not be working.

False! Microcurrent works sub-sensory - meaning that even if you can't feel it, as long as you're applying it correctly to the face, you will experience the instant lift you're looking for. 

True or False: Microcurrent routines take too long. 

False! Microcurrent works sub-sensory - meaning that even if you can't feel it, as long as you're applying it correctly to the face, you will experience the instant lift you're looking for.
