Here at NuFACE, we are strong believers in the power of microcurrent technology for beautiful skin, but we aren't the only leading skin care brand who recommends microcurrent as part of your skin routine. Check out the following article from the Perricone MD blog titled, A New Kind of Perricone Prescription: Electric Facials.
There are all kinds of new facials popping up on your local spa’s beauty menu. Oxygen facials, ultrasound facials, and microcurrent facials have women and men alike flocking to make appointments. Dr. Perricone specializes in microcurrent facials and performs these treatments at his flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York City.
The treatment is an electric current applied to the face by two pen-like electrodes. "The purpose of the current is to stretch sagging muscles that are over contracted, such as frown lines between the eyes," says Dr. Perricone. "The current itself is very mild and would take 60 machines to power a 60 watt light bulb."
The treatment increases adenosine triphosphate, a molecule used for energy in the muscle. Dr. Perricone says that patients will have a "more youthful appearance just after the first treatment." Dr. Perricone said muscles are trained after time, so he recommends weekly treatments for eight to 10 weeks.
Dr. Perricone encourages his patients to also follow his three tiered philosophy in order to obtain the best anti-aging results. This includes an anti-inflammatory diet, targeted nutritional supplements, and topical treatments. Dr. Perricone's topical products help to correct the most visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, enlarged pores, dryness, uneven skin tone, loss of firmness, and loss of radiance.
Dr. Perricone and NuFACE have teamed up to put together an ultimate at-home solution for flawless skin, the NuFACE mini + Perricone MD Anti-Aging Contouring Set (set was for a limited time and is no longer available now). This is a limited edition set that includes the NuFACE® mini facial toning device along with 3 deluxe samples of Perricone MD must-haves and is available exclusively on Sephora.com.
