Microcurrent- Non-Surgical Skin Lift
A Microcurrent facial is often referred to as a “natural” facelift. This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles, while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity and tightens pores.
Here at Norman & Philip we only use genuine Dermalogica, Genosys and Silhouette Dermalift skin care products.
You can choose to end your Microcurrent session with LED light therapy to further enhance results (if performed on the face).
The treatment is normally completed in 60-90 minutes.
How does Microcurrent work?
A Microcurrent facial emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents (hence ‘micro’ current), which mirror your own body’s electrical currents on a cellular level to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb. This treatment is often referred to as “facial toning” because it’s like a workout for your face, whereby skin cells are broken down and then grow back stronger-the same way your muscles do after lifting weights. It works simultaneously to repair a product collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis, the top layer of your skin.
It uses two hand held prongs that deliver precise doses of energy to the skin. As the aesthetician methodically moves the prongs around your face, you may feel a slight tingling sensation, but most say it’s surprisingly relaxing. Of course, you can expect all the other pleasures of a classic facial incorporated into the Microcurrent facial, such as cleansing, exfoliating, mask and moisturizing.
What are the benefits of Microcurrent Facial?
After your first treatment, you’ll have a firmer, glowing, more uplifted you. Your skin will appear tightened and hydrated. Your jaw line will be more defined, your cheekbones more pronounced and your eyes will look younger and refreshed. However, the initial results are rather fleeting and vanish in a week time, that’s why a course of treatments are needed for long lasting results.
Is there any downtime included?
There is no downtime and you can immediately go about your day… glowing like you’ve never glowed before. You should look after the treated skin in the following way:
- Do not go in direct sunlight for 24-48 hours after the treatment
- Use SPF sun cream factor 30+ to protect the skin from UV rays
- Make-up can be applied within 8 hours
- Moisturize the skin frequently
- For 24-48 hours avoid very high temperatures including sauna, sunbed, hot baths or showers- use tepid water & pat dry without rubbing the skin
- A collagen mask at night can enhance the reduction of fine lines
How many treatments will I need?
Results are cumulative, so after a series of sessions the results longer lasting. For sustained results, the recommended course of 10 to 15 treatments within the first 6 weeks (ideally twice a week) followed by a 3-month maintenance schedule.
