At the age of 25, you may notice the first signs of aging. Fine lines appear first, then wrinkles, and the skin experiences a loss of volume and elasticity overtime. This is all completely normal and part of the aging process, however, there are some treatments that you can do to combat these early signs of aging.
One of these treatments is microcurrent.
To understand how microcurrent works to reverse signs of aging, it is important to learn about what happens to the skin during the aging process, specifically in your early 30s.
During this time, cell turnover beings to slow down and skin recovers less easily from inflammation. Collagen and elastin start to breakdown faster while also producing less. The natural skin plumping sugar known as hyaluronic acid also starts to decrease.
You may also notice more forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, under-eye bags and more prominent laugh lines as you enter your 30s.
As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to get stuck in these positions. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. As we age, skin cells become less active, which leads to a breakdown of collagen and elastin.
All these changes can come as a shock at first because in those earlier years, it seemed much easier to maintain that healthy, glowing skin. But aging skin can return to that with the help of a microcurrent treatment series!
As stated in previous blogs, this treatment is the most effective non-surgical way to take years off the face.
There are 32 different muscles of the face that are targeted during a microcurrent treatment. The treatment works to lift, smooth, tighten and tone these different areas of the face. Probes are used to physically move the muscle into the desired position to perform muscle re-education. This process is responsible for lengthening and shortening the muscles which helps retrain the muscles to maintain this new contour.
Microcurrent facials are beneficial on their own but achieve best results when done in a series. Because microcurrent re-educates the muscle tissue, it is crucial to keep up with maintenance.
On top of the benefits, the treatment is pain free, requires no downtime, and is known to be a relaxing experience.
