Just when you thought you’d try it all, the beauty and skincare industry is leaving us all in awe with a ton of new treatments, miracle ingredients, and innovative devices. Personally, this all sounded way too-good-to-be-true. Until I decided to try a microcurrent facial. Don’t get me wrong, I gave it a lot of thought because it sounded a bit scary to me at first.
Listen to this: a microcurrent facial uses a low-grade electrical current to give your facial muscles a workout.
Did they just recommend me to put electricity on my face? Seriously, who could blame me for feeling a little bit freaked out when I was first reading about it?
The promised result got me hooked though: A more lifted, tightened, and firm skin. They got my interest right then and there and that kept me researching. Then I stumbled upon something that gave me that little push I needed: its nickname is the “non-invasive facelift”. Now we’re talking! If there’s one thing that gives me the chills more than electricity is needles… or the mere thought of going under the knife as my only alternative to youthful looks!
How it works…
As we age, our skin becomes a little bit lazy (or well maybe it’s just very tired after the long ride) and its collagen and elastin production starts going south. These two proteins (or the lack of) are responsible for the decay of our glowing youthful looks. And that’s when you look in the mirror and notice something is not looking right. The muscles on your face are being defeated by the force of gravity. We look tired, less contoured, a bit puffy and our skin is just dull. A little bit like what happens to our bodies. So the idea behind all this is that e need microcurrent facials as much as we need to exercise. We have to keep our muscles fit with regular workouts and muscle training… and sometimes we take a shortcut: electrodes. So, basically, just like we use current to stimulate the muscle of our abs and glutes, we can now go for a microcurrent facial and do the same for the muscles in our cheeks for instance! Are you following me here? Don’t tell me this isn’t starting to sound genius to you too.
This screams beauty hack, and I’m all in.
So I got the little courage I have and went for microcurrent facial to experience it first hand. It starts with low doses of current then increases gradually until you have the firmness you would like for the muscles in your face to be lifted. Periodic microcurrent facials have done miracles for my face. You only need one session per month.
I know you’re starting to love the idea now… same happened to me. And, wait, it gets better. New innovations from companies such as Techture Beauty have made it possible and safe, to give yourself a microcurrent facial in the comfort of your home. You don’t need to drive anywhere, or book an appointment, or pay substantial amounts each month. Technology has made this FDA approved home devices possible, to take the future of your skin into your own hands. Bravo for that!
