What Is A Microcurrent Treatment?

Updated: Jun 6, 2023

Microcurrent, or wave therapy, are devices that mimic the way the brain relays messages to the muscles. In the esthetics realm, microcurrent is used to relax muscles, and strengthen and tone the muscles by stimulating motor nerves and contractions of the muscles. We call it a "non-surgical" facelift. An esthetician utilizes two hand-held probes placed on facial muscle groups. A specific movement technique is used on all the designated facial points. The electrical current is regulated according to the skin's resistance. For visible results, treatments should be given once a week for at least 10 to 12 sessions. Then must be given every four weeks to maintain the benefits and results.

An esthetician uses microcurrent to primarily to tone and stimulate facial muscles. Many biological processes are associated with electrical impulses. As we age, impulses slow down, causing the skin to sag. Microcurrent aids in healing and repair of tissues and to influence metabolism. You can consider this treatment a passive form of exercise and has the ability to firm muscles and boost cellular activity. It also improves blood and lymph circulation and can also assist with product absorption.

Be aware though Microcurrent should not be used on open wounds, muscular diseases, advanced diabetes, pacemakers, epilepsy, cancer, pregnancy, hemophilia, phlebitis, and thrombosis. If you have injectables, wait two weeks after the procedure.
