Microcurrent – The Treadmill of Skin Care Treatments

Just as we use that gym membership or online subscription as a tool to keep our bodies in peak physical condition, we can use our microcurrent machines to exercise the face by boosting ATP and collagen and aiding cellular repair: resulting in the same tightened and toned results we’re seeing on our booties from squats as on our faces from current.

The benefits of regular exercise are no secret – it’s a vital part of the optimal operation of our entire body. We’ve all gotten a pretty decent grasp on how exercise works:  

For strength training, we know the muscle repairs itself and grows stronger.

With cardio training, we know variety is key to continued improvement.

C2S Serum is an ideal antioxidant to have on your back bar and for clients to have in their daily skincare home care plan. It glides onto the skin easily and effectively fuels skin cells to stimulate regeneration, bringing renewed vitality to the skin.

It features Salicylic Acid, an Oil Soluble Vitamin C, and a Water Soluble Vitamin C.

The potent antioxidants in this product bring long-term benefits, along with a clearer, brighter complexion. This makes it a go-to age management product. It also offers clients with congested and acne-prone skin a perfect antioxidant-rich skin-balancing serum.

These concepts can be easily applied to esthetics to better understand what we are able to accomplish with microcurrent. Microcurrent is supported by more than 35 years of research. Microcurrent was first used in the medical and physiology fields to activate the skin’s natural chemicals responsible for health and vitality. Injury to the body disrupts normal electrical activity. Microcurrent produces electrical signals much like that that are naturally occurring when the body is repairing tissues. By applying similar electrical currents, the healing process is greatly enhanced and supported.  

Accelerated Cellular Repair 

Microcurrent increases ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels, increases free amino acids in injured cells, and promotes ion transfer through cell membranes. These factors contribute to accelerated cellular repair and age prevention. Microcurrent provides a boost to a process that your body can do on its own, but with the help of microcurrent, the repair process occurs much faster.  

Cumulative ATP Results 

With each Microcurrent application, ATP levels are stockpiled or stored. After a series of microcurrent sessions, the increased levels of ATP allow muscles to stay in the re-educated positions for longer periods of time. The increased blood circulation improves the overall health of the skin, underlying tissues, and muscles. Just like all those days of crunches and planks will result in washboard abs, your diligence to microcurrent will be seen on your jawline and cheekbones. It’s important to note that while we might attend just one training session and feel great afterward, it’s not likely we will be able to obtain and retain lasting results from that one session. Microcurrent is also a long-game sport – results are cumulative and treatments must be continued to maintain those results.  Sure some of us are just born with it, but the rest of us have to commit to the process and incorporate wellness into our routines, and microcurrent treatments with consistency are needed for optimal long-lasting results.

Also important for results is a varied routine. It’s crucial that the microcurrent equipment vary the speed and wavelength of the current being delivered. Let’s compare microcurrent to your average 30-minute treadmill cycle. Running the same speed with no variety in incline or speed can become routine over time and could result in what avid exercisers call a “plateau” with little or slowed results. To break through this, athletes often have to adjust their routines to continue to challenge their physical limits. The Clareblend Jeunesse and Jeunesse Petite achieve this effect by constantly varying the speed and wavelength of the current being delivered so the facial muscles are always being challenged in new ways and no pattern is “learned” or expected.  That way, we deliver a new workout every single treatment.

Pro Vs At Home

Let’s consider professional microcurrent equipment your personal trainer – a knowledgeable professional hired to customize a plan specifically for what you need and what matches you to perfection for the best results. The Clareblend Jeunesse microcurrent is able to mimic the current naturally flowing in the client’s body and work right alongside the body’s natural current. With the Clareblend Petite’s Burst Mode feature, we can even deliver what could be considered a HIIT workout – where we isolate an area of the face and target it with a burst of current for a very short period of time. The Clareblend Mini at-home device is your at-home DVD workout – of course, we are getting all the great general benefits, but in a more generalized, less personalized way. Everyone understands that results are better when working with a professional and microcurrent is no different.  

Your esthetician is your face’s personal trainer! Commit to facial esthetics with microcurrent for a face that matches the rest of your total package lifestyle of health, wellness, and unique beauty.
