Definition - What does Microcurrent Face-Lift mean?
A microcurrent face-lift, also known as “the natural face-lift” or “facial toning”, is a painless facial treatment which helps remove wrinkles and fine lines from the skin, simultaneously improving muscle tone and tightening pores. A microcurrent face-lift involves the use of two hand-held prongs which emit low-voltage electrical currents which stimulate collagen and elastin production, thus heightening skin elasticity. The goal of the treatment is a youthful look, reduction of puffiness and the increase of skin elasticity.
TheConsultation explains Microcurrent Face-Lift
In a microcurrent face-lift, two prongs emit low-voltage electrical currents that are very similar to the electrical currents the body itself naturally produces. A microcurrent face-lift is conducted by a licensed aesthetician who first applies a conducting gel on the surface of the face and then goes on to use the metal prongs in order to apply electrical currents to the surface of the skin. The word “micro” in the term itself indicates the weakness of the voltage, making the procedure itself is very safe and completely painless. The emitted electrical currents are light in intensity, and they repair damaged skin on a cellular level, simultaneously stimulating collagen and elastin production.
The lack of collagen and elastin is associated with the lack of skin elasticity, and the decrease in their production is part of the aging process. Therefore, the microcurrent face lift slows down the aging of the skin by reproducing and mirroring natural bodily processes in order to keep the skin rejuvenating itself. The treatment is often referred to as “a workout for your face”, as the electrical current stimulates and tightens facial muscles, much like physical exercise tightens the muscles in the rest of the body.
