Microcurrent Facial Toning

Facial contouring is not a given, especially as we age. With the loss of volume and collagen also comes the dismantling of muscle firmness in the face. This is not an area of the body that we regularly "work out" to keep it toned. As a result, most people will notice that their cheeks get flatter over time and that their jawline gets softer. Microcurrent facial toning is the professional-grade workout for your face that can resolve these and other issues.

What is NeurotriS Microcurrent Facial Toning?

Microcurrent facials are not new (Jennifer Aniston has been getting them for years) but they are newly popular. This noninvasive treatment tones and tightens not only the skin but the underlying muscle by delivering low-level currents of electricity that mimic the body’s natural electrical current -  the same current that makes your heart beat and your lungs breathe. Since the body is already familiar with this type of energy, it readily accepts microcurrent treatments.

The low-level electricity delivered during microcurrent treatments triggers chemical reactions in the cells beneath the skin. These sleepy cells are stimulated to produce more ATP, cellular energy, collagen, and elastin. The increase in circulation and cellular activity re-educates the muscles so they become firmer, smoother, and more contoured. This stimulation also softens surface lines and wrinkles. That's why microcurrent facial toning is often described as "yoga for your face."

What Conditions Does Microcurrent Facial Toning Treat?

Being a stimulating technology, microcurrent can be used for a number of improvements. It works to promote the natural regeneration of the skin. As such, microcurrent can:

  • Improve the muscle tone on the face and neck
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds
  • Improve circulation through the skin to promote tissue regeneration
  • Lift the jowls and eyebrows
  • Assist with natural lymphatic drainage from the face and neck
  • Promote cellular renewal that reduces acne and skin irritation
  • Improve tissue elasticity and firmness

Is Microcurrent Facial Toning Safe?

Microcurrent technology has been around since the 1800s. It has been widely used in physical therapy and as a treatment for Bell’s palsy. In fact, it was during such a treatment that a physician noticed patients' faces looked smoother and younger than they did before treatments had begun. Since then, the microcurrent facial has become a mainstay in aesthetic medicine. Don't worry - the energy emitted from the microcurrent device is so subtle that it would take one million times that amount of energy to light a 40-watt light bulb.

How Is The Procedure Performed?

Microcurrent facial toning maybe a workout for the face but it’s relaxing for you. During the treatment, the technician will be applying a peptide gel to feed the skin and aid in conductivity. Two metal prongs are used to administer electrical pulses of microcurrent energy to the face. The prongs communicate with one another and are moved in a particular way to help the muscles tone in their natural, lifted contours. This process is repeated throughout the treatment, moving from one part of the face to another until the entire area has been treated. During the procedure, you may feel slight stimulation like tiny zaps, "tingles" or warmth. Every person may feel the energetic reaction in their skin a little differently. None describe it as painful, but if you do experience any discomfort, your technician can adjust the microcurrent device settings to your comfort levels. When the prongs are moved near the cheeks and mouth, it's very common to experience a metallic taste in your mouth.

How Often Should I Get Microcurrent Facial Treatments?

Getting one microcurrent treatment would be like going to the gym once and expecting lasting results. It is important to approach microcurrent treatments with this in mind so you understand why your provider will recommend a series of sessions. Most people need approximately 12 sessions in total to achieve truly dramatic results. These are conducted as one to two sessions a week for a few weeks and then tapering to one treatment a week for the duration of the treatment plan. Each client's situation is unique, so your provider will develop a plan for your particular needs. After the initial series of weekly microcurrent sessions, touch-ups can be performed as often as once a month, or even every 3 months depending on your desired results.

Microcurrent Facial Results

Microcurrent facial toning can be tricky. Some patients notice an immediate difference in the radiance and firmness of their skin. Some notice visible lifting in areas like the eyes or the jawline. The skin often looks smooth and plump right after microcurrent treatment. However, this is fleeting. The real improvements from this process occur over time.

Microcurrent facial toning has been proven to increase:

  • Cellular energy (ATP) by 500%, leading to improved muscle tone
  • Natural collagen production by 12% within 20 days of the first treatment
  • Natural elastin production by 48% within 20 days of the first treatment
  • Blood circulation by 39% within 20 days of the first treatment

Microcurrent treatments are excellent for any adult who wants to preserve or improve the appearance of youthful, plump, firm skin. This safe and effective treatment is suitable for all skin types and colors. There are very few exceptions to the suitability of microcurrent, including pregnant women and people with a pacemaker or metal implant. Clients should discuss skin sensitivities or allergies with their provider before beginning treatment.

What Other Treatments Can Be Combined With Microcurrent Facial Toning?

Combining procedures is a great way to enhance the outcome of any beauty treatment. Microcurrent facial toning may be combined with resurfacing treatments like chemical peels, dermaplaning, and other techniques that address various concerns. Your provider can develop a personalized treatment plan based on your skin and your desired improvements.
