HOW TO WAVE

Achieve instant and cumulative results with the clinically proven benefits of microcurrent.

What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural ionic flow1 and has been clinically tested to safely and effectively address a variety of skin concerns. Because microcurrent works virtually without sensation, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all. Microcurrent treatments are popular in the beauty industry for providing both instant and cumulative results.

Microcurrent is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger-looking appearance.

Origin of Microcurrent Therapy Treatments

Microcurrent has been used in the medical arena since the 1970s with the introduction of the TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) machine and was approved by the FDA as a nerve stimulator for pain relief, wound healing, and the treatment of Bell’s Palsy—a condition that causes a temporary weakness or paralysis of the muscles in the face. All microcurrent stimulators are TENS devices and require a 510(K) Certification Class II Device, otherwise they cannot be sold in the US. This certification assures the device is manufactured to the highest standards. With the discovery of microcurrent therapy treatments and their low-level current retraining of the patient’s muscles, the FDA cleared muscle stimulators to provide a new anti-aging application for the cosmetology industry.

The Importance of Skincare and Microcurrent Therapy

Our skin is the barrier that protects us from the outside world. As we age, our skin is chronically exposed to the sun and elements, which wear it down over time. Even with overcast skies, your skin is still be exposed to UV rays from the sun.

That being said, hydrating and protecting your face should be a critical first step in facial therapy. Your skin needs to be hydrated and taken care of first to attain and maintain the results you have been looking for. Drinking adequate water and applying sunscreen daily is the foundation of proper skincare. In addition, adding microcurrent technology to your existing skincare routine will help to revitalize and care for skin.

How does Microcurrent Treatment work?

Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through the skin and down to the facial muscles. This gentle wave of energy is nearly identical to your body’s natural ionic flow and has been shown to increase ATP (bodies cellular energy) concentration up to 400%, while simultaneously stimulating protein synthesis and promoting amino acid transport2.

As we age, our skin’s natural ability to manufacture these protein fibers reduces, giving way to the multiple signs of aging. ATP’s increased production of proteins and amino acids during facial stimulation helps to energize and tone facial muscles over time—just like how exercise energizes and strengthens the muscles of our body. Unlike anywhere else on the body, the facial muscles are directly connected to the skin, so the result of energizing the muscle is often improved, providing a smooth and lifted appearance.

What Is ATP?

Adenosine Triphosphate, also known as ATP, is a vital energy molecule in all life forms. These molecules are those providing the energy for muscle contractions and nerve transmissions. ATP is our cells' primary energy fuel source and is needed for muscle contraction and relaxation. It also encourages the production of essential structural proteins, such as collagen, which acts like scaffolding to support the skin's structure, and elastin, which provides the recoil necessary for the skin to snap back into place.

Our bodies naturally produce and store ATP daily. As a result, our bodies have an overstock of ATP, which helps our devices get the results you have in mind. Therefore, we can all thank this little molecule for helping us attain and maintain our dream results.

How Are Microcurrent Facials and Red Light Therapy Different?

That said, red light therapy and microcurrent technology also differ in a few key ways:

  • Red light therapy is powered by red and blue (sometimes both) light
  • Microcurrent facials are powered by low-level currents that tone your facial structure
  • Red light therapy is used more for discoloration or dark spots and is focused on skincare
  • Microcurrent facials are used more for facial sculpting and toning
