A Non-Surgical Facelift
Often referred to as a non-surgical facelift, microcurrent facials are extremely popular facials with many benefits and few contraindications. The treatment is not aggressive or invasive and feels very relaxing to the client. A water based gel or product is used to conduct the current as the skin care professional moves probes very specifically around the muscles of the face. The muscle may be “lifted” and held in place for a few seconds which educates the muscle.
The results are evident from the first treatment and many clients will complete a series of treatments to lift and tone the face or to improve skin conditions.
Some of the many benefits of Microcurrent facials are:
- increased blood flow
- lymphatic drainage
- stimulation of collagen and elastin
- increased product penetration and a lifting of the muscles.
Microcurrent is compared to “taking your face to the gym” and multiple sessions yield better results.
Microcurrent therapy has no significant adverse effects.
*Note: People with pacemakers, seizure disorders, cancer, or who are pregnant, should not use microcurrent.
If there is a question on whether or not the facial is appropriate for a certain condition, please check with a medical professional for direction advisability of treatments.
Microcurrent + NeoGenesis Products
Due to the ability of microcurrent to allow better penetration of products, our most advanced product, Recovery, abundant in S²RM® is the perfect choice to use prior to a Microcurrent treatment. Recovery serum will assist in creating better results from the treatment as the skin is nourished and revitalized.
After cleansing the skin with NeoGenesis Cleanser and any other steps, apply Recovery to the face and neck immediately prior to the Microcurrent treatment. Our Glide Gel is a highly conductive and safe product to use with Microcurrent. If any adjustments are necessary to create the perfect glide gel consistency, spray Moisturizing Mist into the Glide Gel and mix.
Immediately following the microcurrent, remove any remaining Glide Gel. For more advanced ageing, Rosacea, acne or any other inflammatory issue, apply Recovery again, the Eye Serum, and follow with Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream for protection and hydration. For less inflammatory issues, use Recovery prior to the treatment and follow with Booster or Skin Serum, the Eye Serum, and the Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream post treatment.
For ongoing daily care at home, use Cleanser twice daily, followed by Recovery, Booster or Skin Serum. Apply to the entire face and neck, including around the eye area. When the eyes are in need of additional help due to dark circles and puffiness, apply the Eye Serum around the eye area. Finish with Light Moisturizer, Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream to leave the skin hydrated and protected.
