In a world invaded by plastic surgery, laser technology, and all other kinds of methods to give you a timeless, young look, the microcurrent face lift is like a breath of fresh air among all these procedures. It is a non-surgical alternative to cosmetic surgery that gives the skin a healthy appearance. It has been effectively used for a variety of skin conditions such as skin pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage. This makes it a safer option compared to other procedures used for these purposes. Here, we will look at how a microcurrent face lift works, its benefits, and the reviews regarding this therapy.
A microcurrent face lift works on the principles of what is known as microcurrent therapy. Using a special machine, the skin is given mild electrical stimulation, that enhances the production of the natural skin chemicals. It stimulates the production of amino acids in the body, which is known to be necessary for skin cell repair and production.
While you may assume this process to be painful, it is in fact a soothing and relaxing procedure. This is one of the many reasons why it is so popular. When studies were performed to test the effects of microcurrent therapy on the skin, it was found that the skin collagen levels increased by 14%, elastin by 48%, and blood circulation by 38%. Furthermore, those who have undergone this treatment claim to find their energy levels restored, find themselves refreshed and less tired, have found that they can now sleep better, and experience lesser body pain. This means it not only benefits the skin, but also the rest of the body.
It is interesting to note that microcurrent therapy was first used to treat patients who suffered from facial palsy. As an aftereffect of the treatment, it was found that the skin of the patients also improved. As such, this process was used to develop what is now known as a microcurrent face lift as a type of anti-aging treatment. Another reason why a microcurrent non surgical face lift is preferred over other skin treatment procedures is that, it not only gets rid of the various skin problems one is facing, but also improves the overall health of the skin and muscle tone.
This effect reduces the occurrence of conditions such as puffiness or bags under the eyes, allows age spots to vanish due to the improved health of the skin, and gives you gorgeous, glowing skin. The benefits of this therapy can be availed by men, women, by youngsters (to prevent and delay the effects of aging), and by older adults (to reduce the effects of aging).
One session of microcurrent face lift ultrasound facials lasts for about an hour, and you will require a minimum of twelve sessions to avail the benefits of this procedure. The number and duration of sessions will also depend on the skin condition you are dealing with and its intensity.
So far, the reviews of this procedure have been great and positive. It is however, essential that you speak to a qualified cosmetic surgeon to understand what the entire procedure entails, and how effective it will be for you. It is said that since it is a face lift without surgery, this procedure does not require any time for you to recover, neither does it have any side effects. Furthermore, it is also a great cost-effective alternative to the many other skin enhancement procedures available. Even so, do not just take the plunge by opting for it. Always speak to a professional who will tell you how to go about the process, and what you can expect from it. Ultimately, you will decide whether or not this procedure is suitable for you.
