Do you ever wonder how 52-year-old silver screen stunner Jennifer Aniston achieves such a youthful, fresh-faced look despite her age? If you guessed Botox, guess again!
Aniston is a self-identified “wellness freak,” taking a more natural approach to beauty. This means she prefers holistic, non-invasive treatments instead of going under the knife (or needle).
In 2016, Anniston revealed her secret to skin that glows from within with Vogue Magazine, stating:
“Because this is the only body we’re given, we need to be really good and mindful of what we eat and how we take care of our skin — getting a good night’s sleep is extremely important, as is hydrating with water, water, water,” she said. “It’s so important to getting that extra glow.” – Jennifer Aniston
If you’re a proponent of Natural Healing, this may all sound familiar to you. But Jennifer Aniston took it one step further to share her skincare secret weapon when she spoke with InStyle Magazine in 2016 – microcurrent facials – sharing that they’re “like a little workout for your face.”
So, if you’re asking yourself, “do microcurrent facials really work?” You can take Jen’s word for it. After all, she has EVERY beauty treatment in the world right at her fingertips. But, if you’re like us and want to know the science behind it all… read on because this post is for you!
What Is a Microcurrent Facial?
A microcurrent facial allows you to tone and tighten your facial muscles – think of Pilates for your face. Not only a microcurrent facial strengthens your facial muscles, but it also stimulates the production of the anti-aging properties of elastin and collagen for glowing skin.
Here’s how it works
You may not realize it, but your body is an electrical organism. Your brain, your heart, and cells are all electrically active. Electrical communication between all tissues, cells, and organs is the key to good health and promote healing.
Microcurrent works by stimulating muscles and cells with the same baseline cell frequency in their healthy natural state. Microcurrent facials allow you to use electrical communication to change and sculpt your body while also promoting the production of two essential ingredients to youthful-looking skin: collagen and elastin.
Microcurrent is a medical technology that gently delivers electrical impulses at an extremely low frequency, typically between 0.5 and 2500 hertz. These exact same electrical frequencies are found naturally in the human body.
According to a 2012 study, it was found that microcurrent therapy could improve facial wrinkles delivering a 70% satisfaction rate in participants while diminishing the appearance of wrinkles for up to one-month post-treatment.
The advantage of a microcurrent therapy is that it is absolutely safe! While microcurrent therapy doesn’t have any contraindications like electrical stimulation used in a physical therapy office setting, we still recommend you ask your doctor if any underlying pathology might be contraindicative.
Is Microcurrent Safe Around the Eyes?
Microcurrent therapy is not only safe for your eyes, but it is actually incredibly beneficial for vision health.
Can You Use Microcurrent After Botox?
Botox injections work by partially paralyzing your facial muscles. As time goes on, the muscle function will come back. This can take up to 4 months for some people. If you’d like to counteract facial muscle atrophy associated with Botox injections or just double down on your efforts, a microcurrent facial is the way to go!
Why Choose Our Office for Your Microcurrent Facial?
Google the words “microcurrent facial,” and you will be met with over 3.5 million results and thousands of devices to choose from. Overwhelming right?
So, why choose our wellness center when there are so many other places around? Allow us to explain below.
There are many other microcurrent and “microcurrent face-lift” devices on the market today. However, we need to be careful as their effectiveness is limited by some of their high voltage, waveforms and poor construction. Many manufacturers do not disclose their frequencies, their voltage, or their waveforms, and those that do come up as Square Waves, rather that true microcurrent. As such, over time their effectiveness may diminish.
