Frequently Asked Questions about Microcurrent

Q: What treatments can microcurrent provide?

A: Microcurrent can be used for cellulite reduction, body sculpting, and massage therapy. 

Q: In what ways does microcurrent benefit skin?

A: Microcurrent reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It also increases the firmness of your skin. Over the course of 20 days, clinical studies at the University of Washington indicate:
  • A 14% increase in natural collagen production,
  • A 48% increase in natural elastin, and 
  • A 38% increase in blood circulation.
Q: What takes place during microcurrent treatment?

A: A conducive gel with firming and hydrating ingredients is applied to the skin. Then, a conducive electrode is used to deliver the current to the skin via special massage gloves. Many clients compare the sensation to that of receiving a facial. 

Q: What will I feel before and after treatment? When can I expect results?

A: Because the current is sub-sensory, the treatment is pain free. There is no recovery time. Most everyone will see noticeable results with the first treatment.

Q: How many treatments will I need to reach optimal results?

A: Your Dublin Electrolysis clinician will assess your skin to determine how many treatments you will need to obtain desired results. Depending on skin damage and lifestyle, about 10 to 20 treatments may be necessary. Treatments last about 45 to 60 minutes. Upon completion of treatments, your Dublin Electrolysis clinician will recommend a home care regimen to help maintain results.

Q: Can microcurrent be used in combination with other skin treatments? 

A: Yes. Microcurrent can be used in combination with your current facial or body treatments, such as microdermabrasion, peels, LED therapy, oxygen infusion, and others.
