Hey ladies & maybe some gents! Thank you for all the positive feedback on this new blog and my last post! This time I am going to be talking about Microcurrent Facials! Some people swear by them and others it’s just not their thing! Being someone who loves to try anything I had my chance working with the amazing Charlene DeLory who has specialized in Microcurrent facials for decades! BUT before I get into the awesomeness that is Charlene I wanted to go over some basic questions and fun facts about Microcurrent facials and then I will tell you why I think they are something women should throw into their Anti-Aging regime!
What is a Microcurrent Facial ?
A microcurrent treatment, also known as microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation, consists of gentle electric stimulation of muscles and tissue. During a microcurrent facial your skin cells as well as facial muscles will be targeted to tone and rejuvenate your face.
How Does a Microcurrent Facial Work?
Electric stimulation will make your facial muscles more taut, much like muscles in your body after a workout. This leads to a firmer skin and toned facial features. Gentle electric current is also known to increase blood circulation, production of collagen and elastin, and glycosaminoglycans. Glyco-what? Glycosaminoglycans, also known as “GAGs,” are large carbohydrates that encompasses proteins like collagen and elastin, and are responsible for a skin elasticity and firmness. On top of that electric stimulation has been shown to increase cell regeneration.
