In part one of ‘The Best Benefits of Microcurrent Muscle Stimulation’, we discussed some of the most important effects that microcurrent muscle stimulation can have on your skin. Today, we’re going to discuss a further five amazing benefits of this treatment. Once you’re finished reading, we’re confident you’ll understand the appeal of this innovative skincare technology.
Increased Collagen Production
One of the most beneficial aspects of microcurrent muscle stimulation is that it prompts collagen synthesis, which is the result of increased levels of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). Collagen is the most important protein in the body when it comes to keeping your skin smooth and tight, as well as keeping your complexion clear and skin tone even. As collagen is renewed in your skin it begins to remodel your skin cells, resulting in clearer and younger-looking skin.
Increased ATP also boosts the production of elastin, another naturally occurring protein. You might be able to tell from its name that elastin is the protein responsible for making your skin elastic! This is your skin's ability to bounce back and remain tight and supple. When your skin loses elastin you age, it becomes loose and begins to sag. Increased elastin means your skin will be more resilient, and will also help you to retain a smoother and more youthful complexion.
A Painless and Non-Invasive Treatment
Many anti-aging treatments such as Botox and fillers are more invasive than microcurrent therapy, which can lead to an uncomfortable or even painful process for people who undergo these treatments.
On the other hand, microcurrent muscle stimulation is completely non-surgical and non-invasive, meaning you won’t have to deal with any needles or scalpels being used on your skin. Because the electrical currents used in this treatment are administered at such a low level, the most you will feel is a tingling sensation on the surface of your skin.
Reduced Wrinkles and Sagging
When you combine the incredible effects of both the toning and firming mechanisms of microcurrents, with the increased levels of ATP that lead to collagen and elastin synthesis, your skin receives incredible anti-aging benefits. The muscle toning of the procedure leads to firmer skin, and renewed collagen and elastin make the skin smoother and tighter. Overall, by using microcurrent muscle stimulation you will see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, faded lines, sagging skin, jowls, and more.
Hyperpigmentation and other skin pigmentation issues can result from a range of factors, including sun damage, hormones, and plain old aging. Thankfully, actively building ATP through your microcurrent therapy sessions will help to even out your skin tone and brighten your complexion, lightening any troubling pigmented spots you might have on your skin. You can also apply a serum used to address pigmentation issues before your treatment, as the microcurrent device will drive it more deeply into your skin, maximizing results.
As you can see, microcurrent muscle stimulation is an incredibly effective skin care treatment, both for anti-aging and overall skin rejuvenation and renewal. Given the wide range of benefits we’ve covered in both part one and part two of this topic, it’s a wonder that more people aren’t clamoring for a microcurrent facial!
If you think the treatment above sounds like something you need, you should consider contacting your local medical spa or beauty clinic to see if they have microcurrent therapy on offer. Or, you may want to try an at-home beauty device that uses microcurrent technology. For example, the EvenSkyn® Lumo, a top-range anti-aging handheld device that utilizes microcurrent muscle stimulation, photorejuvenation, and radiofrequency therapy. You’re guaranteed to see results in just 8 weeks!
