target facial microcurrent

The effects of Microcurrent Treatment is the improvement of muscle tone which will lift skin on the face. This will not be a long-lasting effect if the treatment is not ongoing. The microcurrent non-surgical facelift delivers an electrical current to the muscles and skin cells. The build-up of the muscles in the face in turn lifts and tightens the skin. Some companies also claim that microcurrent stimulates collagen production. It is an electrical procedure with an immediate skin toning and firming effect. The results are immediately visible. This treatment also promotes blood circulation which causes skin to look brighter.

Treatment steps

Microcurrent facial treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses low-level electrical currents to stimulate and tone facial muscles, resulting in improved skin texture and a more lifted appearance. Here are the steps involved:

CLEANSING: Begin by thoroughly removing any dirt, makeup or impurities from the face using a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.

PREPARATION: Apply a toner or facial mist to balance the pH levels of the skin and ensure it is adequately hydrated before proceeding with the treatment.

APPLICATION OF A CONDUCTIVE GEL: To enhance conductivity and provide a barrier between the skin and the microcurrent device, apply a conductive gel evenly over the entire face. This gel allows the electric current to penetrate deeply into the skin.

SETTING UP THE MICROCURRENT DEVICE: Connect the attachments or probes to the microcurrent device according to the manufacturer's instructions. Ensure that the device is charged or powered on before use.

CONDUCTING THE TREATMENT: Start by applying the microcurrent device to one area of the face at a time. Gently glide the probes over the skin, following the natural contours and muscle structure. The movement should be slow and deliberate.

FOCUS ON SPECIFIC AREAS: Optionally, you can focus on specific areas of concern, such as the jawline, forehead or under-eye area. Spend additional time on these areas to achieve optimal results. Adjust the intensity of the microcurrent as per your comfort level and the recommendations of the device manufacturer.

FACIAL MASSAGE AND LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE: After the microcurrent treatment, incorporate a gentle facial massage using your fingertips or a facial roller. This helps to stimulate blood circulation, relax the facial muscles, and promote lymphatic drainage.

APPLICATION OF SKINCARE PRODUCTS: Once the massage is complete, apply your regular skincare products, such as serums, moisturizers or creams. These products will help lock in moisture and nourish the skin.

Treatment products and procedures

Micro-current is based on a modified direct current (DC) and uses positive and negative charges in a similar way that galvanic iontophoresis uses them. A negative polarity stimulates the nervous response by dilating the blood vessels and stimulating the lymphatic circulatory system. The negative current has a warming effect upon tissues. The effects of this treatment are that circulation will improve and the toxin elimination process speeds up. The microcurrent switches back and forth between positive and negative charges. This stimulates nerve endings in the skin and causes the muscles to contract, strengthening them and producing a firmer look. Micro current uses combinations of current intensity; by changing the waveforms and frequency, different effects of muscle and skin toning can be achieved.

Product used: desincrustation (Priadra gel), microcurrent gel.

After care and homecare advice

Regular maintenance, motorise, avoid uv exposure, heat treatments followed by a 15 minutes facial massage.

Facial massage is a therapeutic treatment that involves the manipulation and stimulation of the facial muscles, tissues and pressure points using various techniques. It is designed to improve blood circulation, relax facial muscles, relieve tension, promote lymphatic drainage and enhance the overall health and appearance of the skin and 10 minutes facial mask according skin condition / skin type followed and 10 minutes LED Light Therapy.

LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy (Light Emitting Diode Therapy) is based on the principle that different wavelengths of light stimulate different responses in the skin. The most popular treatments are red and blue therapy. This technology originally developed by NASA and developed for shuttle missions found it had effects on wound treatments. Although this can be used as a stand alone treatment, used in conjunction with other skin therapies LED is a painless way to assist the growth of skin repair whilst the anti-bacterial qualities help fight causes of acne. This non invasive treatment is an ideal way to stimulate collagen production and wellbeing and refresh and rejuvenate your skin. Different coloured lights produce different affects. Most commonly used red light combats wrinkles, increases collagen production for smoother and younger looking skin. Blue light is used to combat acne by eliminating the bacteria that causes acne. Cyan light helps calm and soothe irritated skin by reducing the size of swollen capillaries.

LED Light Therapy helps with acne, ageing, dehydrated skin, inflammatory condition, pigmentation, rosacea, redness and flushing as well as skin tone and texture.
