Microcurrent for Face and Neck
Microcurrent is a clinically tested therapy treatment, and one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry. It is used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative anti-aging results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all.
Microcurrent is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger looking appearance. The results can be so dramatic that microcurrent therapy treatments are often referred to as the “5 Minute Facial-lift (R).”
VelaShape™ Frequently Asked Questions
Origin of Microcurrent Therapy Treatments
Microcurrent has been used since the 1980s and was originally approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator. The most profound microcurrent treatments were originally discovered with patients experiencing a form of nerve-paralysis, leading to atrophied, sagging facial muscles known as Bell’s Palsy. The cause of Bell’s Palsy is unclear.
Microcurrent therapy works by increasing ATP production which stimulates collagen and elastin which builds and repairs skin over time.
Who is a Microcurrent Facial For?
A microcurrent facial is ideal for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin, whether they are more focused on an anti-aging or preventative treatment because it covers all the bases. It is safe and effective on all skin types and skin colors. Pregnant women and people with any kind of heart condition should avoid this treatment. As always, discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with your cosmetic doctor or aesthetician before starting a treatment.
How is a Microcurrent Facial Done?
The microcurrent facial uses two handheld prongs that deliver precise dosages of energy to the skin. As the aesthetician methodically moves the prongs around your face, you may feel a slight tingling sensation, but most say it’s surprisingly relaxing. Of course, you can expect all the other pleasures of a classic facial incorporated into the microcurrent facial, such as cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and facial massage.
