Microcurrent has been called the nonsurgical, or lunchtime face lift, and is a safe and effective, low-cost treatment that counteracts environmental damage, aging skin and poor dietary habits, without invasive surgery. Yet few skin care professionals offer the treatment on their menu. Why?
According to microcurrent expert, esthetician and trainer, Jane Mann, of Skinworks in Las Vegas, “Microcurrent represents a huge missed opportunity for licensed estheticians. Many dermatologists, plastic surgeons and medical spas are not interested in microcurrent; they prefer lasers, injectables or surgery. For the esthetician, microcurrent can be the ultimate anti-aging tool.”
What is microcurrent?
Microcurrent technology is a low-level electrical current that mimics the body’s own biological current. Despite its low electrical vibration—one millionth of an amp—microcurrent treatments are very effective. It helps increase protein synthesis, promote waste removal, stimulate healing, regenerate tissue, balance free radical damage, boost cell growth, enhance natural collagen and elastin production, provide circulatory benefits, and work directly on the nerves and muscle fibers. Its mild frequency does not stimulate sensory nerves, is pain-free and causes no client discomfort.
