Microcurrent facials: here's what to keep in mind

Fab or fad? Here's what to know about this skincare technique everyone is talking about.

Microcurrent facials send bolts of electricity into the skin to lift and firm the face in a non-invasive way. The treatment can also stimulate lymphatic drainage, boost collagen and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
 

This is not a new treatment, but the methods have evolved. The tiny currents can manipulate muscles and move them into place –it lengthens the muscles that have shortened due to years of facial expressions and improves the tone of the muscles.


 

How does it work?

During the treatment the therapist will work on your face with the probes, lifting and holding, and letting the current go through each muscle. This aims at re-educating the muscles to lift, tone, and stimulate cellular activity –the results are visible in the first session. When done regularly, you will notice your skin stronger and more elastic and you might potentially feel a metallic taste, which is totally normal –the current impacts on the enzymes in your saliva.

Does it work on every skin type?

Yes. All skin types will respond well to microcurrent facials –it is not particularly recommended if you are pregnant or have epilepsy or a pacemaker.
