WHAT IS A MICRO-CURRENT FACIAL?
A micro-current facial is often referred to as a “natural” facelift. This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity, and tightens pores. The overall result is healthier and younger-looking skin, no matter your age. The point of micro-current isn't to erase lines the same way that fillers and Botox do. Micro-current is awesome for lifting the muscle and de-puffing the face, along with fluid-draining and contour-enhancing side effects.
Micro-current technology has been around since the 1800s as a treatment for damaged tissues and muscles. But when a physician of a Bell’s Palsy patient noticed that the faces of his patients appeared much smoother and younger looking after receiving micro-current therapy, one of the world’s first high-tech aesthetic treatments was born.Next:
A micro-current facial emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents (hence ‘micro’ current), which mirror your own body’s electrical currents, on a cellular level to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so slight that it would take one million micro-current machines to light a 40-watt light bulb. This treatment is often referred to as “facial toning” because it’s like a workout for your face, whereby skin cells are broken down and then grow back stronger, the same way your muscles do after lifting weights. “It works simultaneously to repair a product collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis, the top layer of your skin. According to studies, a micro-current facial can increase collagen production by up to 14%, elastin increases 48% and blood circulation goes up 38%. Now those are great numbers!
Skinlogica Spa has been using micro-current in conjunction with LED and peels for over 10 years and feels it is a wonderful way to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out.
