Microcurrent machines are used to give the skin a refreshed and rejuvenated look by stimulating muscle contractions. They can be found in spas or beauty salons, where they are used for both facial and body treatments.
Steps of how does microcurrent machine work:
1. A microcurrent machine usually has either a needle or roller application, which works by sending electrodes into the skin.
2. A low-level electrical current flows through the needles or rollers to stimulate the muscles underneath. This causes them to contract and relax, which helps increase muscle tone and remove cellulite.
3. The process is painless due to its small current but may take several sessions before results are seen.
4. It can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles if performed on the face area over time and rejuvenate skin that has lost its elasticity. The treatment also stimulates collagen production in order to improve elasticity even further once finished with treatments after 2-3 months, depending on how fast your body metabolizes collagen.
5. Another theory is that professional microcurrent facial machine
can repair damaged muscle tissue, reduce inflammation and release toxins from the body, which helps with muscle pain and swelling.
As well as being used for beauty treatments, they are also used in physiotherapy to treat sprains, strains, and scar tissue. It is also commonly used on people who have had mastectomy surgery or skin conditions such as burns or psoriasis due to its non-invasive nature.
