Starting Age prevention early with Microcurrent Facials 

It is very common nowadays for many people to add preventative steps in their daily skin care routines. Anti-aging skincare is growing extremely popular, even for women as young as their early 20s. It is one of the most popular and valuable trends in the beauty industry right now. Many skin aging conditions can be hard to reverse, which is why we emphasize starting treatments as a preventative. There are also professional non-invasive treatments that Anika Skincare & Makeup has to offer.

Signs of Skin Aging

The first signs of skin aging are:

  • Fine lines around the eyes
  • Loss of volume and elasticity in the face
  • Hyperpigmentation, sunspots, form over exposure to UV rays without SPF


Fine lines around both your eyes and mouth are most common because it is where most of our facial expressions are held. These signs tend to be noticed when cellular activity starts to slow down in our 30s, and sometimes for those in their 20s if they have no preventative skin care.


The skin conditions that are deemed as “unfavorable” and hard to reverse are hyperpigmentation and sagging skin. Hyperpigmentation is caused by sun exposure and comes out as liver spots or Chloasma. Liver spots are brown patches of skin on the face and Chloasma are similar, coming out as small flat dark areas. Sagging is challenging to reverse without advanced treatments such as microcurrent. Sagging can lead to deep lines called nasal labial folds around the mouth. Microcurrent treatment can re-train the muscles in the face to give a more lifted and smooth appearance.


The Answer to Your Wrinkles

It is always a good idea to have an anti-aging skin regimen and it is never too late to begin one. With that being said there is another option that has become a “go-to” for many...microcurrent facial treatments. It is a lot of our client’s favorite option because it is pain-free, natural tightens muscles and evens skin tones. For years, the only option to eliminate signs of aging was a surgical face lift. This microcurrent method is a drastic improvement to all things anti-aging. It is non-invasive and the lift comes from the stimulation of your facial muscles with a small electric current. This brings your skin to its tightest, healthiest state. Microcurrent facials increase the ATP (or Adenosine Triphosphate) levels in your skin cells. This creates more cellular activity resulting in more collagen and elastin production.

This microcurrent treatment can be commonly paired with LED Light Therapy facials. This will encourage anti-aging results even more so!  The different colored LED lights cause various healing reactions in separate layers of the skin. This can reduce inflammation and hyperpigmentation. An LED light therapy and microcurrent combination can help to improve those tough to reverse anti-aging signs we mentioned earlier. This will keep your skin well-rounded, increase a deep hydration and reduce those fine lines and wrinkles.


See the long list skincare benefits with microcurrent...


  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production in skin that slow as we age.
  • Increases ATP in cells up to 500%
  • Helps improve product penetration.
  • Improves blood flow and circulation in the skin giving a healthy glow
  • Special waveforms relax muscles, a noninvasive Botox benefit. And, increases the lasting effects of Botox.
  • Facial muscles on face, neck and eye area are strengthened, tightened, firmed.
  • Mdlift provides a very deep lift for sagging jawlines and eyelids.
  • Special waveform to help with Lymphatic drainage. Excellent for puffy skin especially under the eye area. Many of my clients even state they can breathe much better after the Lymphatic drainage.
  • Breaks down hardened collagen for those who have acne scarring.


Microcurrent is an excellent skincare modality that delivers a wide range of healing skincare benefits to client. Unlike micro-needling, microcurrent does not cause damage to the skin in order for it to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Visible results are seen in one treatment and longer lasting are achieved when done in a series.
