Non-surgical, non-invasive facelift in Jacksonville is possible with the microcurrent facial

There are various aesthetic treatments designed to treat the common signs of aging. Botox relaxes overused muscles. Dermal fillers replace lost volume. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion uncover healthy new cells and promote the production of collagen. Though wonderfully effective at their intended purpose, none of these treatments can do what the microcurrent facial does – re-educate the muscles of the face and neck.

"What has happened to my face?"

With age, the body changes quite a bit. The transformation that occurs in the skin can be dramatic and distressing. Over years of use, the muscles in the face become accustomed to specific positions and remain contracted in certain ways. Brow furrows and crow’s feet are prime examples. While there are certain muscles we use frequently in expressions, others are very rarely used. These muscles, in time, atrophy. In contrast to the tightened muscles in some parts of the face, atrophied muscles lead to sagging. This problem is often noticed in the chin and jawline area and on the neck. By the time a person reaches the age of 45, his or her upper cheek muscles may be elongated by as much as ½ inch. The loss of volume in the cheeks is also noticed in the jowls, where skin sags and definition is lost.

How microcurrent facials rejuvenate the face

Microcurrent treatments manipulate the 32 different facial muscles with the application of low-level electrical current. This form of therapy has been used medically for many years, addressing injuries safely and effectively. When performed for aesthetic purposes using specific techniques, the microcurrent treatment provides benefits such as:
  • Improvement in circulation in the face
  • Healthy lymphatic drainage
  • Better penetration of skin care products
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lifted eyebrows
  • Improved definition in the jawline by lifting the jowls
  • Improved tone in the muscles of the face and neck
  • Accelerated cellular repair through the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and amino acids

The specifics of microcurrent treatment

The microcurrent facelift, performed in our comfortable Jacksonville spa and laser center, tones, tightens, and smooths the skin quickly. Our esthetician uses probes to move muscles into their desired position manually in the process of re-education. Moved and treated with low-level electricity, the muscles relearn where they should lengthen and where they should shorten. Through a series of affordable cosmetic treatments, the face takes on younger contours.

With a full series of microcurrent treatments and maintenance as recommended, the face can remain looking younger for several years. Call The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology at 904-606-9882 today to schedule your rejuvenating microcurrent facelift.
