Known as the best non-surgical facelift treatments, microcurrent facials are painless, effective and simple.
They work by emitting an extremely low-voltage electrical current beneath the surface of the skin, which mirrors your own body’s electrical current to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production.
At-home personal devices have started to become mainstream. These portable devices use the same technology utilized by professionals but have been streamlined and designed for convenient at-home use.
Our facial area is made up of 42 muscles that enable us to move our eyelids, nose and mouth. As we get older, the muscles and connective tissues lose elasticity and tone. Fat deposits shrink. The combined effects lead to the visible signs of aging that include fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Women may undergo cosmetic procedures in an attempt to look refreshed, rejuvenated and younger. However, many treatments are invasive and often cause an accumulative expense.
Home-based methods are more cost-effective yet offer surprising results.
One of the in-home treatment techniques introduced in recent years involves microcurrent facial massage. The technology was introduced during the 1980s and was originally used for patients suffering from Bell’s Palsy or other types of facial paralysis. The impressive results of the technology enabled the devices to transition to the world of cosmetology.
Nowadays the skin care devices are getting more compact and easier to use at home. Though the result seems not immediate than a salon treatment, many people still love to do it at home using handheld skin care devices like Nuface or Ziip. Since these are much expensive devices, some users turn to devices like Rhafine’s portable Microcurrent Facial Massager, which gives similar result but at lower cost.
How does a Microcurrent Facial Massager help?
The devices emit a slight electrical current that interacts with and is absorbed by facial tissues.
Microcurrent facial massager users initially apply a conductive gel on the face to the areas needing treatment.
The device is turned on, and the dual probes are applied to the skin simultaneously and gently rubbed across the skin’s surface to stimulate the facial muscles and other underlying tissues.
Microcurrent device emits very small electrical currents that are gentle enough to be barely noticeable. More specifically, Rhafine’s Microcurrent facial massager will generate a constant current of 300μA. Some other devices have current ranges from 80μA to 200μA. Apparently the larger the current is, the more stimulation it gives to the skin muscles.
With high frequency of vibration, the impulses tone the underlying muscles and improve circulation while encouraging collagen and fibrin production. The combined effects create fresher and younger-looking skin.
The length of time required per treatment varies, but usually a 10-15 minutes session is recommended. However, consistent use is needed to achieve the cumulative effects. In general, the skin must undergo routine therapy for four to eight weeks. An everyday follow-up treatment is recommended to retain results.
The gel applied before using a microcurrent facial massager helps with electrical penetration and makes the shocks un-feel-able.
What benefits will you get by using a Microcurrent Facial Massager?
In general, microcurrent facial treatment devices are safe for young and old. The portable machines are designed to be user-friendly and simple to use in the privacy of the home. So it is quite convenient to use for daily facial care routine at home, instead going out to the salon at a fixed time.
The point of microcurrent isn’t to erase lines in the same way fillers and Botox do. Microcurrent is awesome for lifting the muscle and de-puffing the face. There will be a brightness on your skin. The energy flow in your face-it’s better than caffeine. You will look rested after several sessions if you can keep up using the microcurrent facial massager.
By sending tiny electrical currents through your skin, the treatment stimulates the muscles underneath-essentially “working them out.” In other words, imagine the muscles beneath your cheekbones and along your jawline doing a ton of tiny sit-ups. When they begin to tone up, your face takes on a more sculpted look. The microcurrent facial massager gives the look of more prominent cheekbones and tighten up the look of saggy jowls. In addition, it can help visibly plump out lines and wrinkles to a certain degree.
How to use a Microcurrent facial massager?
Like other devices you use in a daily facial care routine, to use microcurrent facial massager, you will need to cleanse your face thoroughly to get prepared.
It is highly recommended that you apply some conductive gel on the preferred area. Then massage the area in an oval motion three times before moving on to the next section.
Glide the device on the contours of your face, i.e., right below the cheekbones and jawline. Keep doing the massage and glide for at least 5-10 minutes to make sure the result is good.
And finally wash off the gel after treatment.
It is safe enough to be part of your daily skin care routine. You will see the result in a couple of weeks, usually 6 to 8 weeks. Facial contour will be improved and a noticeable difference in tone will be felt.
Follow below instructions will help you better using the microcurrent devices.
1. Lift from the chin to the ears for face lifting and shaping.
2. Pull up from the corner of the mouth.
3. Pull from the cheek toward the centre of the face to ease the nasolabial folds.
