A colored eye liner in dark purple or grey is a subtle, yet easy way to spice up your look.
Microcurrent is a non-invasive, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatment that enhances the natural shape of the face, reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles and transforms dull skin tones into glowing and radiant hues for a more youthful and rested appearance. Microcurrent is often referred to as the non-surgical facelift because it offers intensive facial contouring results that re-define and re-tone the muscles responsible for loose and lax parts of the face and neck, such as the jowls, eyebrows and cheeks.
Compared to traditional face-lifts or laser skin rejuvenation procedures, the Microcurrent treatment offers natural skin and contour enhancement features through non-surgical, safe and harmless means. The technology incorporates electronic waveforms that naturally stimulate and, in a sense, "awaken" the muscular strengthening points of the face while fueling cell regeneration, collagen production and blood circulation. The simple and painless Microcurrent treatment is quickly becoming the most requested treatment across medical spas and anti-aging clinics because of its quick and often instantaneously gratifying results.
DESCRIPTION OF TREATMENT
Microcurrent treatments are often described as relaxing and therapeutic facial massages. No anesthesia or facial numbing cream is required prior to treatment and a client is able to resume his or her routine activities immediately after without downtime, or post-procedural care. During treatment, specific levels of gentle electronic currents are passed through the skin and into the muscle and tissue with two, cotton-covered application wands. A full facial Microcurrent treatment will last for approximately one hour or less. In order to sustain optimal contouring results, 10-12 maintenance treatments are typically recommended.
The popularity of Microcurrent can also be attributed to how easy, painless and side effect free the treatment truly is. Unlike certain aggressive laser skin resurfacing treatments, chemical peels and surgical face lifts,a Microcurrent treatment can deliver profound anti-aging and skin rejuvenation results without the messy downtime. Individuals who get a Microcurrent treatment often do so over a simple lunch break, and return to work immediately after. Microcurrent is an attractive alternative for facial contouring, wrinkle reduction and skin toning results without the transient swelling, bruising or bronzing effects of most other aesthetic technologies.
Microcurrent waveform and electro-technology has been utilized throughout the field of medicine in one form or another for nearly 65 years and is FDA approved in the United States and clinically registered in Canada. This form of non-invasive stimulation therapy has also been referred to as bio-electric healing for muscle stimulation in degenerative disease patients during physical therapy. The first form of Microcurrent therapy was indicative to Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Acupuncture is based on the theory that needles will reduce the inflammation of painful muscle tissue by draining away cellular irritation through natural electrical currents when twisted into the skin. Today's Microcurrent technology for anti-aging and rejuvenation works on the same principals of this harmless and non-toxic electro-based therapy.
A typical Microcurrent facial treatment will cost $100 to $150, although this price does tend to vary given the location of the provider. Be sure to research other provider costs in the area to get a better idea of the amount of money one should and should not be spending.
