As we age, the muscles in our face grow accustomed to certain expressions, and as a result, form wrinkles in these positions. Crow’s feet and the brow furrow are perfect examples. Likewise, the muscles that don’t get used as often tend to atrophy, which results in less firmness and sagging. This is common in areas including the chin, jaw line, neck and chest. To compound this process, our cells are less active as we age, leading to a breakdown in collagen and elastin. Our muscles lose their contour, leading to sagging, fine lines and wrinkles.
During a microcurrent facial, the muscles in our face are physically stimulated into the desired position and then re-education begins. The muscles are trained to follow this new contour, using the microcurrent energy to maintain the tension necessary. After a treatment, the skin is glowing and appears lifted—which is why it is touted as the non-surgical facelift.
To re-educate the synergistic muscles in our faces for the longest term possible, it’s important to follow a series of treatments so that you can achieve the maximum results. Your technician can determine the appropriate number of antiaging facials necessary, based on age and the condition of your skin. Once a series is completed, it’s recommended that clients schedule a maintenance session once a month. Often times, clients like to come in before special events as well.
