Everything You Need To Know About Microcurrent Facials

What Is A Microcurrent Facial?

“Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) that helps tone facial muscles, boost collagen and enhance blood circulation. Don’t think of this as an electric shock: but like it mimics the body’s natural current. At the cellular level, microcurrent therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in ATP, the energy that fuels the production of collagen and elastin in the body,” says Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta, Founder and Dermatologist, ISAAC Luxe, New Delhi. Think of it as a non-invasive, painless lunchtime facelift. 

What Should I Expect In A Session?

Like a typical facial, it involves, cleansing, toning and exfoliating. After that, they apply a water based serum which is also a conductor and start using a device that discharges both positive and negative microcurrents. You will feel the vibration but not pain as such. Some patients feel tinging feel some of us feel nothing. 
 
Along with the mechanical procedure, it also uses LED light therapy that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin – tightening your skin and making it wrinkle-free and youthful.
The session should finish with an application of hydrating serums and SPF.

What Results Can I expect From A Microcurrent Facial?

The first and most obvious one is anti-ageing. Since it works on the cellular level, it has immediate effects to help reshape jawline, eyebrows and signs of ageing like fine lines and crow’s feet. Since it has an impact on a cellular level, it can possibly leave you with better, clear looking skin. 

All that increase in blood circulation will definitely leave you with glowing skin.

When Can I See Results?

Immediately. You will see more of a lift or change in texture for up to 24 hours. The results should last for about 10 days minimum.

Can I do it at home?

Expertise is of key importance here. Trust a certified practitioner for the same.
