How to “Workout” Your Face

A modern way to help you look younger is by getting a treatment from a microcurrent facial device.

Want radiant, youthful skin for life? We got you. Although there are many different ways to get there, giving yourself a microcurrent facial treatment could be the perfect choice to achieve a more youthful-looking appearance.

So, What Is a Microcurrent Facial?

Microcurrent facials, often referred to as “natural” facelifts, are achieved using a microcurrent facial device that provides a low-level, electrical current measured in microamps—capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through skin down to the facial muscles. This holistic therapy mimics the body’s natural bio-electrical current.

Research has shown 3 main mechanisms of microcurrent relative to facial rejuvenation:

•Facial stimulation to improve muscle tone

•Increased circulation to boost skin radiance

•Increased ATP production—Adenosine Triphosphate is the energy fuel source for our cells to boost protein synthesis of collagen and elastin

These mechanisms will assist in improving skin tone and texture and will minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles


PRO TIP: Our face is the only place on the body where the skin and muscles are connected. Loss of facial muscle tone can lead to the appearance of sagging on the skin surface. We should always address the skin and muscles for optimal skin health and vitality.

When you get a microcurrent facial, the low-level current electricity stimulates your facial muscles, increasing adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cell energy to support the increase of collagen and elastin production. The result? Facial muscles will tighten and skin will look smoother through the increased cellular activity.

The current of electricity also provides multiple benefits and positive effects such as increased circulation, relaxation, pain relief, and improvement of blood flow.

You can receive a professional microcurrent facial from a licensed aesthetician or from the privacy of your own home using our NuFACE® Products and Devices, which can be done in just 5 minutes a day for lifted, beautiful skin.

The Best Microcurrent Facial Benefits

The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles go bye-bye. As facial muscles are toned with each microcurrent session, skin’s texture appears smooth and radiant. 

Improved muscle tone and contour in your face and neck, showcase your best features. Sometimes, facial muscles become laxed, but with regular microcurrent treatments, muscle tone increases, creating a more lifted, facial structure.

Microcurrent stimulates ATP to increase the production of collagen and elastin. Microcurrent can also:

•Improve muscle tone and contour in the face/neck

•Re-educate the muscles

•Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

•Firm and tighten skin

•Stimulate the recovery of damaged tissue

•Temporarily improve local circulation

•Aid in lymphatic drainage

While microcurrent cannot increase penetration of any other skincare product, water-based products are the key for far-reaching benefits. But remember, before using your microcurrent facial device, you’ll need to apply conductivity products to your skin!

 

As if microcurrent facials didn’t do enough, along with minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and tightening facial skin, these treatments help increase skin resiliency. The boost in ATP is responsible for better skin resiliency, making you look younger.

Let’s Get Ready For Your Microcurrent Facial

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

To help you achieve optimal results from a microcurrent facial, it’s essential to prepare the skin, to ensure your experience is both comfortable and efficacious!

It is not recommended to treat swollen, infected, or inflamed areas or skin eruptions.

If botox or fillers are part of your skincare regimen, always check with your medical practitioner, but we generally recommend waiting 7-14 days after procedures for everything to settle before introducing microcurrent back into your routine. After that, all is fair game — lift, tone, and contour as you would normally.

What to Expect from a Microcurrent Facial

Before your skin gets a microcurrent spa sesh, a conductivity product will need to be applied to clean skin. Because our skin is naturally resistant to electrical current, a Microcurrent Activator is essential to conduct and harness the technology to achieve optimal performance and help the device easily glide smoothly over your skin. 

Your NuFACE® Microcurrent Device has two spheres or wands that deliver low-level energy, and as long as you have applied a mask-like layer of conductivity activator on the treatment area, the microcurrent technology is virtually subsensory (AKA: you can’t feel a thing!). 

After your treatment, the increase in circulation will produce a glowing radiance—your skin may appear a bit more red  than usual around the treated area, which subsides within a few minutes. Your skin will instantly look fuller, smoother, and more youthful than before.

How Does a Microcurrent Facial Differ From a Regular Facial?

During a regular facial, your licensed aesthetician will perform multiple steps to address skin concerns from the outside in from acne to aging—basically nutrition for your skin. 

A microcurrent facial incorporates microcurrent technology into the facial treatment to address concerns of aging from the inside out, like fitness for your face.

How Long Will the Results Last?

The amazing thing about microcurrent facials are the instant results. However, this non-invasive technology can achieve cumulative results with regular use from days to months. Even though the treatment is non-invasive like other cosmetic procedures, it can still last a long time, depending on how your skin responds.

If you do regular microcurrent facials, you’ll see the best results in maintaining the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, firmer skin, and increased collagen production.

Who Performs the Microcurrent Treatment?

The best part about NuFACE®is you can perform the microcurrent treatment on your schedule with our Microcurrent Facial Devices.  It's easy and relaxing and can be done in just 5 minutes, 3-5 times per week, within the comfort of your own home. It is the perfect addition to your topical skincare routine, leaving you with toned, lifted, and contoured skin immediately and over time. Additionally, licensed aestheticians trained in microcurrent professional facials can perform a series of treatments at your local spa to take your microcurrent routine to the next level.  See a list of providers in your area. 

Are There Any Side Effects?

Microcurrent facial treatments are safe and effective for most people, no matter your skin condition or skin tone, but there are a few safety considerations. There are medical conditions where a microcurrent facial should not be used, including: 

•Epilepsy or subject to seizures

•Recent facial or other surgery

•Pacemaker or electrical implanted device

•Active Cancer

•Pregnancy

•Under the age of 18

Microcurrent technology is a phenomenal tool with a long list of benefits. However, it is important to keep an open dialogue with your aesthetician and primary healthcare provider if you feel you fall under a clinical condition or medical condition that may disqualify you from microcurrent facial treatments.
