Microcurrent Facials: The Non-Invasive Facelift

The beauty industry makes countless claims about products, routines and treatments that will transform us into a younger version of ourselves. There are serums, powders and lotions that hold the promise of smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, and giving our skin more elasticity. Relatively new to the beauty world is the microcurrent facial, which makes skin appear tighter, and more lifted.

What is a microcurrent facial?

Microcurrent facials were originally used in the 1980s by the medical community as a method of stimulating the muscles of patients with Bell’s palsy and facial paralysis. They were then adopted as an anti-aging tool for skin tightening.

Microcurrent facials use machines to apply low-level electrical currents that “train” facial muscles to be tighter and firmer. They work by sending gentle microcurrents through the skin and into facial muscles to stimulate and lift them. The result is a non-invasive, non-surgical facelift that gives surface-level skin a healthier, more youthful appearance.

In addition to physically training skin to be firmer, microcurrent facials stimulate the skin’s production of collagen. Collagen is the body’s main protein that is responsible for the elasticity of skin, and as we age, our body’s collagen levels diminish, which causes skin to wrinkle and sag. Collagen can be added to your diet via food or supplements, and collagen production in your body can be encouraged by the low-grade current of the microcurrent facial.

While health and beauty spas and estheticians offer this service, there are at-home devices and products you can use to achieve the same results or help maintain the results of a professional treatment.

NuFace is one of the first companies to create small and portable, FDA-approved microcurrent facial machines. Pharmaca offers a selection of their devices and associated products to target fine lines, smooth wrinkles and give you a spa-level quality experience at home. Here’s more about our collection.
