You’re probably overwhelmed with all of the cutting-edge new technologies that are revolutionizing the world of skincare. Well, we’re not going to be relieving you any time soon - because today we’re going to talk about one of the best new non-invasive skin treatments on the market. One that’s currently being touted as “better than Botox.”
We’re talking about the microcurrent facial, one of the more underrated trends in modern skincare. But what is it, and how can it help your skin?
What is a Microcurrent Facial?
A microcurrent facial uses tiny electrical currents to zap the nerves connected to your facial muscles, which stimulate and tighten the muscles and connective tissues of your face. Over time, the tightening of your muscles will “lift” your face, making your skin look firmer and tighter.
It is not a one-off treatment, as it can take several microcurrent facials before the desired results are seen. People will often get a microcurrent facial on a weekly basis for a period, before reducing treatments to bi-weekly treatment.
Microcurrent facials are a non-invasive treatment, but they are not suitable for everyone. People with medical and metal implants, as well as people with severe and chronic acne, should avoid the microcurrent facial. Pregnant women are also advised against using microcurrent technology, simply because the treatment hasn’t been properly tested on pregnant women.
Although it isn’t as common as other non-invasive skin treatments, microcurrent therapy has been used for decades in physical therapy and for treatment of Bell’s palsy, so there is a lot of research and evidence to back up this unique treatment.
How Can it Help Your Skin?
Microcurrent facials have often been compared to a gym workout for your face. Our muscles become weaker as we age, which contributes to drooping features and sagging skin. Microcurrent therapy retrains your muscles, lifting them and building overall muscle tone. This leads to your facial skin looking tighter in some areas, and also lens a more contoured look to your jaw and cheekbones.
This technology also helps to boost your skin's production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which helps to stimulate the production of collagen and synthesis. Both of these proteins help to renew and rejuvenate your skin, making it tighter and smoother, as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
There are many skin treatments and technologies on the market, but we believe that a microcurrent facial is worth trying if you’re looking for a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment that can firm, tone, and tighten your skin completely naturally. And if you’re looking for the benefits of a microcurrent facial without leaving the comfort of your home, consider trying the EvenSkyn® Lumo, a high-quality skincare device that uses the latest in skincare technology to tighten your skin and combat the effects of aging. It uses not only microcurrent firming but also photorejuvenation (photo LED therapy) and radiofrequency technology! It’s a triple whammy!
