Is this treatment microdermabrasion?
No, it’s completely different. This question I get asked a LOT by consumers & other estheticians who are unfamiliar with this amazing treatment.
We are all searching for that magic anti-aging thing that is going to lift away our sagging skin, get rid of wrinkles for good and make us look 20 years younger.
Unfortunately, that’s not possible.
But I have good news because those things can be achieved and HELPED with this amazing service I offer, called Microcurrent.
I’ve been using this treatment on clients for over 3 years and not only do I love the results on my OWN skin, but my clients have been happy too.
Microcurrent is a great alternative to someone who is looking to improve their skin’s wrinkles and sagging skin, but doesn’t want to do invasive treatments, lasers, injections or even surgery.
Today you’re going to learn what is microcurrent, how the treatments work and why this is a service you want to start doing!
What is microcurrent?
Microcurrent uses electromagnetic current to stimulate the facial muscles, which tightens and tones them. Over the course of several treatments, your skin will begin to tighten and your wrinkles will soften.
You will even notice the tone of your skin even out, pores shrink and the texture improves.
Basically, a microcurrent treatment is like going to the gym for your facial muscles.
Microcurrent works by educating the muscles to tighten back up, because as we age, not only do we lose collagen & elastin, but our muscles begin to slack, which causes sagging skin around the mouth, jowls and neck. And we notice deeper wrinkles forming all over the forehead, eyes & mouth areas.
Another cool feature that the microcurrent machine offers is it’s ability to help products get into the skin.
This is a great treatment for anyone suffering from skin problems, such as acne, rosacea, large pores, uneven skin tone or even post acne red bumps.
During each microcurrent treatment, a customized serum is applied to the skin, then the treatment is performed. This allows the skin cell channels to open up and allow the serum to get deeper in the skin.
The goal of the serum is to get to the Epidermal Junction, where the new skin cells are born. This creates healthier skin cells which means a healthier skin barrier.
If you don’t have a copy of my book: Skin Deep: Demystifying Skin Care Solutions to Achieve Healthy, Glowing Skin; you need to grab a copy to learn more about the Epidermal Junction.
Here’s what I tell clients: we go to the gym to lift weights that give us muscle tone. Once we achieve those muscles, we don’t just stop going and let our muscles sag again. We maintain them by consistently going & lifting weights.
The same concept is with microcurrent. You will need a series of treatments to tighten the muscle and keep it tight. Then you’ll need to maintain the results so your muscles don’t start sagging or go back to the way they used to look.
The bonus is microcurrent is a relaxing treatment. Most of my clients end up falling asleep on the table because it’s so relaxing!
There is no pain involved during the treatment, no post-treatment redness because microcurrent reduces inflammation in the skin, which means its good to use on adult clients suffering from acne.
By now you’re wondering what the treatment process looks like…
How often do I need to get a microcurrent treatment?
In the beginning, you’ll need a series of 6-8 weekly treatments. Every week you will notice the results lasting longer each time. By the end of the series, you will be able to maintain the results for 3-4 weeks before another treatment.
Once we hit the maintenance period, you are welcome to come as often as you can. I recommend every 3-4 weeks.
I wouldn’t recommend more than 4 weeks between treatments, because that’s where you’ll see the skin lose a bit of muscle and won’t maintain the results as well.
Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes. During the treatment, I cleanse & exfoliate the skin, apply a customized serum before performing the microcurrent treatment. We end with a hot towel and moisturizer. You leave feeling totally relaxed and your skin glows!
Why should I do microcurrent?
If you are looking for anti aging but are scared of injections, lasers or anything invasive, then microcurrent is best for you.
My treatments & philosophy focus on the holistic aspect of skin care.
Microcurrent is proven to be safe and effective. The results do last as long as you maintain them.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet also plays a huge role in how your skin responds to the microcurrent treatments you do.
I love microcurrent so much, as do my clients. I recently invested in a brand new machine that offers 2 different levels of treatments to offer my clients even better results that last!
The level 1 treatments offer amazing results at a lower intensity. You will achieve amazing results at this level.
The level 2 treatments offer the same results as level one, but work at a superior level that delivers higher current to the muscles.
