Much more than any worldly luxury, what we don’t wanna lose is ‘OUR YOUTH’ ! WE do love our self and want unending glow and lustre in our skin. But, even though unwanted the years just slip by, leaving us wondering at our age……
What we realize is that its not only a chronological fact, in its practical sense we keep loosing our ‘younger self!’ Our skin of course conveys it all. Everyone, especially women want their skin not facing deterioration as a result of fleeting time. But the skin is destined to gradually lose its lusture, firmness and glow owing to aging. The responsible proteins and connective tissues in the skin get deteriorated causing aging!
There are lots of methods to renew and rebuild elasticity and firmness in the skin: One of them being by using MICROCURRENT.
Searching for creams that promise to provide you a’natural’ or ‘instant’ face lift might have provided temporary results or completely failed your expectations. The good news is, that you don’t need to whine as face lift is possible very economically and safely and that too AT HOME!
First of all, let’s make ourselves aware about what actually micro current is?
Micro current is a low level of electrical current that mimics the body’s own natural current. We have electrical charges pulsating throughout our bodies. This low level of electrical current (500 microamperes) works in harmony with the body’s natural healing processes.
Microcurrent devices are those that output therapeutic currents regulated in the millionth of an amp, or microcurrent, range. The success and popularity of microcurrent electro-therapies are based on a history of superior patient responses, compared with conventional milliamp devices. This is due to the fact that most of the human body’s innate electrical activity occurs in the pico (trillionths) and nano (billionths) of an amp range, and in some cases reaches the microamp range.
So, be it a non surgical face lift. cheek lift, neck lift or in its entirety a ‘quick lift’, the solution lies in using therapeutic microcurrent!
What is Bell’s Palsy?
Microcurrent techniques have shown success in treating a variety of medical conditions including Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is facial paralysis. It usually effects the face. The cause is unknown, of one of the facial nerves may cause paralysis in the facial muscles! So, using microcurrent for effective stimulation of nerves and massage of muscles is an old trick.
The science behind facial toning with microcurrent!
To understand that, we first need to understand what causes our facial skin to wrinkle and sag. As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to “stick” in these positions. A great example of this is the furrow between the eyebrows that many people get. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. An example of this can often be seen around our jaw lines, chins and necks where we tend to develop sagging or loss of definition as we get older.
Microcurrent facial toning machines sends safe, painless impulses to the muscles in your face that help overly-tightened muscles to relax and helps under worked muscles to regain strength. In essence, microcurrent facial toning “re-educates” the facial muscles and restores them back almost to their original shape.
When this happens the visible results are quite dramatic and the face is lifted, firmed and toned back to a much more youthful appearance. At the same time, the microcurrents improve circulation to your face which stimulates production of collagen, improves tone and texture, and improves or eliminates fine lines.
Research based evidence:
- In 1982, researcher Ngok Cheng, MD, at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, led a study that provided hard evidence of micro current’s role in cellular vitality by proving that micro current increased levels of ATP—the fuel a cell needs to function—in lab-rat skin cells by 500 percent.
- Also the ‘Life science Journal’ in a study says : Micro current, recovers facial wrinkles, this recovery was better in the frontal area comparing the nose and mouth. Also comparing the scores of photos, immediately after treatment and one month later shows that not only the effect of treatment has been stable but also the started recovery procedure has been continued after treatment. Treatment satisfaction among patients was over 70%.
Besides the fact that it really works, one of the things that makes microcurrent facial toning so popular is that most people see visible results after just a single treatment. This gives “instant gratification” which is seen so rarely as a result of other anti-aging products or techniques. In fact, the results are so noticeable that if you only treat half your face one time you can see a visible difference between the half you treated and the half you didn’t.
It is differnt from botox!
There are over 30 muscles in the face, and micro current can be used to stimulate the muscles. There is no muscle contraction. The muscle is woken up! Whereas, Botox inhibits the muscle movements that cause expression lines. Microcurrent facial toning is cumulative as well, which means that the more treatments you have, the more improvement you will see in your face.
Is it safe?
Microcurrent can typically feel a little tingly or prickly. This will vary greatly depending on the individual’s level of sensitivity.Cosmetic micro current treatment is considered a safe and gentle therapeutic approach to skin rejuvenation however the following precautions should always be taken:
- Do not use if you are pregnant
- Do not use if you have a cardiac pacemaker or history of heart disease
- Do not use if you have been diagnosed with cancer or tumors
- Do not use if you have implanted defibrillators/stimulators or other devices
While buying any microcurrent facial device, be careful while reading the guidelines and abide by the directions mentioned. Use according to the recommended methodology and abide by the safety guidelines.

USING BOTH MICROCURRENT AND LIGHT THERAPY !
One of the most exciting and effective innovations in microcurrent technology in recent years is the combination of microcurrent with simultaneous color light therapy. Microcurrents are usually applied in the low frequency range that effectively targets pain relief and healing of the muscles, fascia, nerves and tendons of the physical body. And….. Wavelengths of the visible light spectrum (ranging from violet at 400 nm up to red at 700 nm) have been shown to activate cellular healing responses, improve organ and glandular health and help with healing of emotional imbalances. Color light therapy is also recognized for its great value in promoting rejuvenation and anti-aging benefits, with many benefits over microcurrent alone.
