Microcurrent is one of our favorite treatments at DNA Skin, and it actually works if you’re willing to dedicate yourself to frequent visits to our studio initially. We offer two different machines which give us the opportunity to achieve the best results.
Microcurrent is an extremely low level of electricity that is safe for the skin and mirrors the body’s own natural electrical impulses. Through electrical stimulation, microcurrent works by mimicking how the brain relays messages to the facial muscles.
Microcurrent Retrains Facial Muscles
Much like chiropractic care, microcurrent requires manual manipulation to reeducate the muscles. It helps retrain your facial muscles but does not cause visible or physical contraction of the face. Many of our clients say that it is a super relaxing treatment!
Known to aid in the healing and the repairing of tissue, microcurrent influences cellular activity in your skin. The goal is to speed up the body’s natural regenerative processes using the low-level current. We regulate the current according to the skin’s resistance and increase the intensity over time to deliver real results.
Benefits of Microcurrent Treatments
There are many reasons why microcurrent treatments are so popular with our clients. After weekly visits to DNA Skin NYC, you’ll notice the following:
- Improved blood and lymph circulation
- Increased muscle tone
- Restored elasticity
- Reduced redness and inflammation
- Heals and repairs skin tissues
- Increased collagen and elastin production
- Aging skin will notice a firmer appearance
Are Electric Impulses Safe?
Many biological processes are associated with electrical impulses. Microcurrent helps to revive the impulses, which slow down as we get older. These sluggish impulses ultimately start to cause sagging in the skin. Microcurrent treatment has been widely used in physical therapy settings for years, so it is safe and administered in a low dose voltage.
Unfortunately, pregnant clients cannot have this treatment done, as well as those who have pacemakers, epilepsy, phlebitis, or thrombosis.
Slow and Steady Wins the Microcurrent Race
As mentioned earlier, microcurrent needs to be done in a series of treatments to truly see results. Coming in for weekly treatments is the best way to achieve lasting results. As with any kind of muscle training, microcurrent takes time and patience, but we promise to deliver results!
