Microcurrent facelifts offer an alternative to surgery and photofacial treatments; they have become one of the most sought-after treatments for sagging skin or a dull complexion, and may be especially effective for getting rid of superficial lines and wrinkles. If you are experiencing signs of premature aging, you can effectively get rid of wrinkles, dark patches and other skin problems with the electrical stimulation technology.
How Microcurrent Treatments Work
Microcurrent technology works by delivering impulses of mild electrical currents deep into the skin’s surface. This triggers the healing response because the skin cells sense that the tissues have been injured and the body begins to produce more and more cells in order to heal this ‘injury.’ This then boosts collagen production deep within the skin’s surface and encourages the skin cells to heal and repair themselves naturally as they reproduce to heal the injured site.
Clinical studies show that microcurrent facelift procedures trigger the production of amino acids, the body’s natural building blocks which are involved with accelerating cell production and repair. This means that cells can be restored and the body can start producing healthier skin cells in a very short period of time. The micro current facial can be administered up to one time per month, and only takes one hour to complete.
Results are not instant, but the skin will appear tighter and firmer after just one facial session. Most people experience the best results about three weeks after the session when the body goes through its natural detoxification and cell turnover process.
Ultimately, microcurrent treatments are a healing and repairing facial rejuvenation treatment and can be an effective way to brighten up dull skin and reduce lines, wrinkles and scar tissues.
Key Benefits of Microcurrent Treatments
Microcurrent facelift procedures and skin treatments are designed for aging skin, but can also be used on younger skin to slow down the aging process. Key benefits of this treatment include:
Reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles
More even skin tone
Tighter, firmer skin
Reduction or elimination of age spots
Reduction or elimination of superficial scars
Microcurrent facials have a low risk of side effects, and are often combined with other facial treatments such as a facial mask or spa facial for enhanced results.
Where to Find Microcurrent Treatments
Microcurrent facelifts and facial treatments are readily available at medical spas, some day spas and many cosmetic surgery centers. You will need to undergo a skin consultation to determine if this is the right treatment for you, and may need to book a series of sessions to see result. Follow up treatments can help you maintain results for the long-term, and this treatment may be a more affordable option to surgery or injectable fillers for skin rejuvenation. Average treatment costs for microcurrent treatments are $100 per session, depending on the location of the clinic or spa.
