Microcurrent machines explained
Microcurrent therapy is currently a trending treatment in anti-ageing and aesthetics, but it is hardly a fad technology that just appeared overnight — it has actually been in use since the mid 1900s to fast track wound healing and tissue repair. Here we look specifically at microcurrent machines in the modern salon, spa and clinic environment.
What is microcurrent therapy?
Microcurrent is a scientifically proven therapy that engages low-level electrical currents applied to the treatment zone. It is used by dermatologists, practitioners and aestheticians as both a muscle re-educating/rehabilitating treatment and an anti-ageing facial toner to decrease fine lines, folds and wrinkles resulting in restored youth, suppleness, and firmness to the skin. Microcurrent is advantageous in skin preservation as it not only increases the natural production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) — our body’s main source for fuelling cellular and muscular function — but also collagen and elastin to holistically encourage a youthful and lifted appearance.
How does it work?
A microcurrent facial typically takes 45 minutes and engages electrode handpieces applied with light pressure to targeted areas of the skin/facial muscles. Our body tissue is equipped with its own electrical frequency and microcurrent uses low level electrical currents to mirror or restore these cellular frequencies to a healthy, balanced level.
Microcurrent therapy is known for stimulating ATP production, an energy-bearing molecule that feeds the biochemical functions in our bodies. That together with the inducement of protein synthesis for tissue repair encourages new collagen and elastin production, making microcurrent therapy an effective anti-ageing treatment that works to lift, tone and tighten facial muscles as well as smooth skin for a revitalised complexion with improved facial contour.
