Microcurrent

What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent is a clinically tested therapy treatment, and one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry. It is used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning, and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current. while also providing both instant and cumulative anti-aging results.1 Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all.

Microcurrent is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger looking appearance. The results can be so dramatic that microcurrent therapy treatments are often referred to as the "5 Minute Facial Lift®"

Origin of Microcurrent Therapy Treatments

Microcurrent has been used since the 1980s and was originally approved by the FDA as a nerve stimulator for pain relief. With the discovery of microcurrent therapy treatments and their low-level current retraining the patient’s muscles, the FDA approved muscle stimulator provided a new anti-aging application for the cosmetology industry.

Image shows how microcurrent therapy works by increasing ATP production which stimulates collagen and elastin which builds and repairs skin over time.

 

How Does Microcurrent Work?

Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through the skin, tissues and down to the facial muscles. Microcurrent has been shown to increase ATP concentration and protein synthesis while promoting amino acid uptake.2 ATP is known as Adenosine triphosphate which drives the creation of key structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, and is the biochemical way to store and use energy. Collagen makes up one-third of a total protein and its auxiliary job can be promptly valued by its bounty in skin, tendon, bone and cartilage. Elastin provides the recoil necessary in tissues such as skin, and certain ligaments.3

This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles, similar to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies. Unlike anywhere else on the body, the facial muscles are directly connected to the skin, so the result of energizing the muscle is often an improved, lifted appearance
