We know firsthand: a simple scroll through any beauty blog is enough to make your head spin. It seems like there’s no shortage of gimmicks, gadgets, tinctures, oils, and novelties when it comes to the skincare game, but let’s be realistic: nobody has enough drawer space to entertain them all; and nobody has the patience to try a million things that just don’t work.
New Kid on the Block
A few years back, microcurrent therapy emerged into popularity as a new non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses a low electrical current to transform your skin in just one session. Swarms of people raced to test this dermatological sorcery for themselves, while others were hesitant to be fooled by yet another shiny new toy.
But the truth is, microcurrent therapy has been around before its cultural boom in skincare practice. This advanced technology was first utilized in the 1980s as a FDA-approved treatment for Bell’s palsy and muscle paralysis. Research in the years that followed revealed microcurrent to also be an excellent facial treatment for improving skin elasticity and reducing wrinkles.
So What’s the Magic Trick?
We know, the concept of getting zapped on your face by 2 electrodes to give you youthful-looking skin sounds like something straight out of a Twilight Zone episode. But microcurrent therapy is actually a completely safe and painless (in fact, you may not feel anything at all) practice.
First, conductive gel is applied in a generous layer over the surface of your face. This will ensure that the current is distributed evenly and effectively without any sensation at all. Once prepared, the microcurrent device can be applied to various areas of your face in firm gliding motions, which will deliver electrical signals into your skin cells. This event maximizes collagen production, boosts the energy of your cells and their ability to heal, and encourages the absorption of nutrients like antioxidants and amino acids. Translation: tighter, firmer skin that’s nutrient-rich and heals amazingly fast.
Ok, so where can I get this done?
With their major boost in popularity, it’s relatively simple to find dermatologists to conduct microcurrent therapy--but it’ll cost you around $200--$600 just for a 45 minute session. Yikes.
Luckily, recent advancements in microcurrent technology have brought the electric treatment home with easy-to-use handheld devices. But make no mistake, leading consumer microcurrent brands like NuFace and ZIIP can still empty your pocket of about $325+.
