Non-Surgical Facelift Options: Microcurrent Facelift
A microcurrent facelift is one of the many technologies available for facelift treatment that does not involve surgery. Instead of creating an incision and shifting facial tissues as with the traditional facelift, this procedure utilizes electrical currents to stimulate the body’s natural skin enhancement process that uses chemicals at the cellular level. This procedure is unlike most other facelift procedures. While many others also do not require surgery, most involve some sort of injection of material to add volume to the facial area. The microcurrent facelift does not do this, but rather uses exterior techniques to encourage a natural bodily process. To help patients understand this process, this article will explain how it works and how it compares to other more traditional forms of facelift techniques.
How Does the Microcurrent Facelift Work?
The body has its own natural ways of running things. However, sometimes these natural processes slow down over time or do not work efficiently for various reasons. Thus, procedures such as the microcurrent facelift have been invented to attack the problem directly and stimulate these natural processes to produce the necessary chemicals for optimal functioning. Because it enhances a natural bodily function, this procedure is also often referred to as a bio-ultimate facelift. During the procedure, the technician uses a pronged instrument to gently send electrical currents from the microcurrent machine to the face or neck area to stimulate the natural muscle and tissue functions. It is most effective if the skin is well hydrated. The actual procedure lasts about one hour and does not require any anesthesia or recovery time. However, it does require multiple treatments; between six and twelve is the number usually recommended by most specialists to achieve maximum results. Afterward, follow up microcurrent facelift treatments should happen routinely to maintain the benefits provided by treatment. Generally speaking, each treatment session costs around one hundred dollars.
Background of and Use For Microcurrent Facelift Technology
The technologies used in this technique were developed in the fields of medical and physiotherapy research. They trigger the natural chemicals in the skin to facilitate health and vitality. Because these are processes the body already does, albeit at a slower rate than desired due to aging, microcurrent facelift technology can be used to lift eyebrows, lift jowls, improve muscle tone in the neck and face, eliminate wrinkles and lines, and can also increase facial circulation, treatment for sun damage, skin pigment, skin exfoliation, lymphatic drainage, and more. In other words, it can be used to treat almost any area that other facelift treatment options can target, and indeed, can improve areas that some other forms of treatment cannot improve.
Caution and Results
This technology can be used on almost any individual who desires to see their face looking younger and more firm, barring certain medical conditions. Individuals who are pregnant or who have a pacemaker, epilepsy, or melanoma should not receive treatment, and those with diabetes, acne rosacea, metal pins or plates, stroke, bells’ palsy, or migraines should exercise caution with this treatment. Older patients can expect cell rejuvenation from the microcurrent facelift treatment, and younger patients can expect results to prevent the effects of aging before they occur. Results last from six months to a year, and routine treatments afterward every four to six weeks can maintain results well into the future. These results vary according to the patient’s age and genetics. Studies conducted on this technology have found that after twenty days of treatment, there is a fourteen percent increase in collagen production, a thirty eight percent increase in blood circulation, and a forty eight percent increase in elastin. The procedure also enhances the production of ATP and amino acids, which help with cellular repair and healthy production at the cellular level. If the patient desires long-term results that will last for years, the microcurrent facelift is not the most highly recommended option. However, although this technology has short-term results and requires repeat treatments, it is effective in its own time range. This is a viable alternative option for individuals who would like to receive a facelift but who do not want or need a full traditional facelift.
