What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent, a popular treatment for ageing skin, uses a low-level electrical current to trigger the body’s natural skin enhancement chemicals at a cellular level, giving skin therapists an effective tool against the signs of skin ageing. While alternative medicine practitioners use it for injury recovery, skin therapists note that it provides firming and toning benefits that continue to improve with subsequent treatments.
Benefits of using Microcurrent
- Improve muscle tone in the face and neck
- Lift jowls and eyebrows
- Reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve facial circulation
- Aid in lymphatic drainage
- Enhance product penetration to treat multiple skin problems
Muscle Re-education, the process of lengthening or shortening muscles, is mostly related to the term “facial toning.” Sometimes referred to as MENS (Muscle Electrical Neural Stimulus or Minimal Electrical Neural Stimulus), Microcurrent re-programs the muscle fibre, allowing the muscle to lengthen or shorten depending on the direction of the application.
The procedure sends a current to lift and re-educate muscles. Some machines used in Europe and in medical environments cause a muscle contraction. In the United States, if used by a professional skin therapist within their scope of practice, Microcurrent cannot cause a visible contraction. There is no actual muscle contraction, and probes allow the skin therapist to pick up the muscle and hold it in place for a few seconds. The current stimulates Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that can accumulate in the muscles themselves. It is vital that the therapist knows all 32 of the muscles on the face, their origins, their insertions and their bellies.
When a muscle lengthens or shortens, the skin lifts and firms. Working from the belly of the muscle outward will have a lengthening effect on muscles that have become increasingly contracted from years of making facial expressions. Working a muscle from the origin and insertion point inward will have a shortening effect that is necessary for those muscles that have become elongated over many years of age and gravity.
