A microcurrent facial is a completely safe, non-invasive, and painless method to rejuvenate your skin just as how exercise rejuvenates your body. It exercises your skin by delivering low-grade electrical currents to your face, achieving the equivalent of a facial workout that results in brighter and firmer skin.
The Miniface device is highly customizable with five levels of current intensity. This allows you to tweak the intensity level to your own preference for optimal comfort.
What is the use of a Microcurrent device?
Widely known as the nonsurgical face-lift, a microcurrent facial diminishes signs of aging, improves your face contour, and brightens your complexion. As its name suggests, it makes use of low-voltage electrical current to stimulate collagen and elastin production in your skin. It also repairs damaged tissues and re-educates the facial muscles to become firmer and tighter.
Will the Microcurrent device vibrate or emit heat?
It does not vibrate or contract the muscles, it just gently stimulates the face by sending the low-level electrical currents into your skin.
Are Microcurrent devices safe?
Yes. Microcurrent devices have been around in the market for decades and successfully used by skin care professionals as a non-surgical method to lift and tone the face.
What do Microcurrents feel like on my skin?
The sensitivity to microcurrent truly depends on the individual and their skin. Microcurrent uses a low-level current to gently stimulate your face. Granted, if you are using the Microcurrent device the right way - which is by applying a layer of our conductive Hydroblast Gel, then you may feel a slight sensation ( pulsating) or no sensation at all. You can always lower or raise the intensity during any part of your facial treatment.
Can you Microcurrent device on sensitive skin?
Yes, It’s perfectly fine to use microcurrent on sensitive skin. We recommend starting off with low current intensity for the first few treatments and slowly build it up as you go. However, if you are experiencing a lot of inflammation, do not use microcurrent as it can stimulate that further. Please always consult your physician first before starting off Microcurrent treatment.
How often should I use my device?
Microcurrent devices are safe and gentle enough for everyday use. For best results, we recommend using it for 5-25 minutes per treatment once in a 24-hour period. 5 times weekly the first 2 months followed by 2-3 times weekly as needed after that.
Is there any downtime after using my device?
No, there is no downtime. Microcurrent technology is a safe and effective treatment that uses low-level currents to target and lift the skin, manifesting as a tingling, painless sensation on your skin.
Are Microcurrent devices effective?
Yes, microcurrent devices deliver spa-grade facial treatments at the comfort of your own home. It stimulates and tones facial muscles by giving the face a workout via targeted microcurrents that promote collagen production and blood circulation for a brighter and firmer look.
How quickly can I see results?
Results should be visible from the first treatment itself. The longer you use the device, the more improvement in skin firmness and smoothness you will experience.
How long do the results last? What happens when I stop using my device?
Just like exercise, consistent treatment is key for long-lasting results. Facial muscles will return to their original state in a fortnight when treatment is stopped.
Should I use Microcurrent Device at night or in the morning?
You can use it whenever you like but just be sure to give your facial muscles rest between each treatment - at least 24 hours. We prefer to do it in the morning to get rid of puffiness but again, you can do your treatments whenever it’s most convenient for you.
Do I use the Microcurrent device before or after my skincare routine?
Microcurrent treatments are best done mid routine. This is our recommended order: Start with an oil-free cleanser, then apply our Hydroblast gel and begin your Microcurrent treatment. Follow up with serums, face masks, facial oils, or any other skincare products that you use in your daily routine. P.S. Avoid any oil-based product BEFORE your Microcurrent treatment.
Can I use my own serum or gel?
You definitely can as long as it is water or gel-based serums but our Hydroblast gel simply ensures the best results. The Miniface Hydroblast Gel's amazing formula ensures maximum penetration of youth-preserving ingredients down where they can nourish your skin best. It also helps the spherical attachments on the device glide smoothly over your skin without dragging. It dries relatively slowly, giving you time to treat all areas of your skin! P.S. Do not use it with oil-based serums or creams.
At what age should I start using a Microcurrent device?
You can start taking preventive measures once you turn 18. When you are in your 20’s & 30's, this device is great for anti-aging prevention. If anti-aging is your primary concern, this device is for you. It’s suitable for all skin types and ages and can be used all over the face.
