Microcurrent Benefits:

Being of the age where I could use a little help with some ‘lifting’ and ‘firming’ of my own facial features, microcurrent is becoming more important to me, not only as an Esthetician, but also as a client!  Because of this, I have been doing my own research as to what are ALL the benefits of microcurrent!  I want to share them with you as well as some of my own experiences with microcurrent.

What is microcurrent? 

It is small electrical pulses that trigger a firming and tightening response to the skin. This stimulation becomes a cumulative effect low level of current to the areas of concern which gives a favorable reaction at the skin’s cellular level, giving skin a vibrant, more youthful appearance.

Microcurrent Benefits If used correctly, microcurrent is non-invasive, progressive – not aggressive, will help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, will help to redefine the neck, jowls, cheeks and eye areas. Microcurrent is popular because it helps to sculpt and re-educate your facial muscles!  Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP plays an important part in the process of giving life back to your facial muscles.  Simply put, it is used in cells as a coenzyme, which means it transports energy within the cells. 

This is important because microcurrent, as we know it, is known for its ability to reeducate the muscles of the face and muscles are dependent on ATP for muscle contraction. Microcurrent stimulates ATP production.  When used correctly, it can increase ATP as much as 500% which makes microcurrent the king of the hill when stimulating ATP to help build muscle strength which helps to firm and tighten the skin!   Microcurrent helps to rejuvenate skin tissue, helps with the regeneration of bone and soft tissue injuries too.

If you have clients that do not want to go under the ‘knife’ yet, or don’t want to use injectable fillers etc., then microcurrent might be their answer!  You can offer them a ‘Microcurrent face lift’.  It will redefine and lift the jowls, eyebrows, tighten the neck, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helps to reduce facial puffiness, improves facial circulation, evens out skin tone and helps with product penetration. It will help boost the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. At the University of Washington, they performed clinical trials measuring the benefits of Microcurrent to the face. 

Research has shown it will increase:

  • Collagen by 14%
  • Elastin by 48%
  • Blood Circulation by 38%

Thereby increasing production of ATP which helps with cellular repair. For optimal results a series of treatments twice a week for 6 weeks with maintenance of once or twice a month.

Sign me up!  I am in my 40’s and would much rather receive a series of Microcurrent treatments, as well as exercise, eat well and try to live a clean life (with an occasional  glass of Sauvignon Blanc, paired with some exquisite cheese and crackers every now and then), then go under the knife and pay lots of money for fillers that we don’t know how they will affect skin later in life or even the possibility that we are allergic to them. 

So let’s say that you opted for the surgical face lift. If used correctly, microcurrent treatments post-surgery will help to accelerate the healing process.  Some clients may experience a loss of nerve function and/or feeling after surgery, Microcurrent can help to reduce the time it takes for the feeling to come back to the areas of concern. Microcurrent will also help extend the life of your surgical facelift, which could save you money and possibly having another facelift later in life. 

Microcurrent benefits -Tone jowlsBeing a Master Educator in esthetics, I  am usually on the other side of the table, so when I am training estheticians on how to use our Nue Fusion 200 Microcurrent machine  for the face, I have seen, time and time again, amazing results from just one treatment. I am delighted each time, but what really matters is the esthetician I am showing how to use the machine… they are delighted with the results. It renews my passion for microcurrent every time I do a training because not only do we see the results on the clients we are working on, but the client is ecstatic because they can instantly see and feel the results. The last training I did, the esthetician practiced on her daughter, who was only in her early 20’s and beautiful!  Could microcurrent do anything for someone so young and pretty?  Yes, I was even amazed by how it brightened up the eye area, making her look like she had plenty of rest! 

I have to say that Skin for Life’s Nue Fusion 200 Microcurrent for the face is the bomb….not because I work for the company.  I have been with the company for about 6 months and have compared and have seen other microcurrent machines on the market.  I can say a few things about ours that sets us apart (without bragging)….

We actually make our machines in our corporate office in the warehouse, so if anything goes wrong with the machine, there is no middle man to deal with, we will help you troubleshoot immediately and if we can’t do that, you send it in to us and we can fix it.

You can individually customize the settings for each client, there are three different ways to customize for your client, and many settings within those 3 different ways, so it is always progressive, not aggressive, always stimulating the ATP to maximize the benefits of the treatment.

Our customer service is second to none, which is why I joined the Skin for Life team!  We are always there for you.  Not only can we help you with troubleshooting your machines, we will also help you with menu development, protocols, retail training, one on one individualized training for you and your team….and more!

Thank you for reading my first blog with Skin for Life…there will be more to come…this weekend I will attending the Face & Body Conference and Expo in Chicago, so I will be letting you know the highlights of the show and perhaps the city itself.

Until then…
