Looking to get lifted eyes and more chiselled features without needles or cosmetic surgery?
Enter microcurrent facials, your non-invasive answer to your anti-ageing concerns. It involves using a low-grade electrical current to “train” your facial muscles to appear more lifted, tightened, and firm. In fact, it has been dubbed as the non-surgical facelift. One of THE GREAT ADDRESS’ favourite at-home microcurrent tools is the FDA-approved Ultra Facial Lift device from Lifetrons.
Lifetrons’ 3-in-1 beauty device with integrated microcurrent, low-frequency micro-vibration and red photon light technology is destined to become a new star in your weekly skincare routine. The power is in its microcurrent technology – the metal probes at the top of the device send electric currents through several layers of your skin, training your muscles. Basically, the microcurrent increases the production of collagen and elastin in your face – two proteins that keep your skin firm and lifted. It takes some time commitment, but afterwards, you will notice a more defined jawline and cheekbones you did not know you had.
And finally, one of the best parts about the Lifetrons Beauty Ultra Facial Lift device is its versatility, offering three beauty devices in one. The device features three different heads (two for microcurrent treatment and one for red LED). Whether you are hoping to iron out smile lines, firm up laxity, or just help restore a youthful glow to your skin, this device can handle it all.
What is microcurrent therapy
Microcurrent facials fall into the category of non-invasive anti-ageing methods.
As its name indicates, a microcurrent facial is a treatment whereby low-level electrical currents are delivered through the various layers of your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. It also repairs damaged tissues and re-educates the facial muscles to become firmer and tighter.
The voltage delivered is similar to the amount we have naturally within our body (1-60 μA/cm2). There are no known risks of using microcurrent on the skin.
How does microcurrent work
A microcurrent treatment is essentially “fitness for your face.” A microcurrent device uses microcurrent technology to send low-level currents of gentle electrical pulses that mimic the body’s natural current through the various layers of facial skin, down to the muscles, to give them a workout.
The idea is that by stimulating the facial muscles connected to the skin, you will be able to tone, lift, and firm the skin.
This treatment is designed to ‘exercise’ the facial muscles. Of course, just like working out the rest of your body, you will need to regularly use your microcurrent device to maintain the results.
What are the benefits of a microcurrent facial
Microcurrent offers a host of benefits to anyone who wants to maintain a more youthful look. It is also a safe, non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, Botox injections and other invasive treatments.
Some of the anti-ageing benefits of microcurrent treatments may be:
- Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved facial and neck muscle tone
- Improved facial contour
- Improved elasticity
- Lift of jowls and eyebrows
- Increased ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) production, which leads to the creation of structural proteins like elastin (helps skin retain its elasticity) and collagen (helps retain the skin structure)
- Improved circulation
- Improved lymphatic drainage
- Increased product penetration
- Smoother, firmer skin
The results can vary by individual and skin type. Most users can expect to see immediate improvements in skin tightening/lifting and rejuvenation. However, the results of microcurrent are cumulative – the longer and more frequently you use it, the better the effect.
Why we love Lifetrons’ at-home microcurrent device
At-home microcurrent treatments are pain-free and non-invasive, which is what makes Lifetrons such a popular choice for anti-ageing treatments.
What makes Lifetrons different from other devices for facial lifting is the ease of use, convenience, and efficacy. Some of its stand-out features include:
VERSATILITY: The Lifetrons Beauty Ultra Facial Lift device is a 3-in-1 machine with separate attachments for the face, eyes, and lips, letting you customise your routine. The three interchangeable attachments are:
Microcurrent Facial Massage Treatment: To focus on larger surface areas of your face and including your neck, use the facial massager. It gently stimulates your skin with microcurrent using two specially designed spheres leaving a final result of improved facial contour, tone, and smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.
Eye & Lip Massage Treatment Attachment: It provides targeted microcurrent technology that lifts, tones, and improves the look of those hard-to-reach fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and lips. With its dual wands, you will receive precise microcurrent that gently smooths fine lines and wrinkles, such as eyebrow furrows, crow’s feet, and smile lines. It uses a precise red light technology – 630+/-10nm – to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.
STRENGTH: You are receiving a salon-worthy device. The Lifetrons’ microcurrent tool can be adjusted to four different levels for your comfort and preference. It delivers up to 400 microamps (uA) at maximum intensity, which is the same as Nuface Pro.
FDA-APPROVED: The microcurrent device is FDA-approved, giving you the peace of mind of a risk-free treatment.
ERGONOMIC DESIGN: Thanks to its ergonomic design, the Lifetrons’ microcurrent device adapts perfectly to the shape of your face and is easy to operate with its push-button controls.
EASY TO USE: It is very easy to use; just switch it on – having applied conductive gel to the skin first – slide the smooth metal nodes of the device slowly upwards and outwards across the cheeks, then slowly upwards from the eyebrows. Repeat these movements at least three to five times in each section. It is recommended to use the device three to four times a week.
Opting to use all three heads in one session? Start with the red LED-powered wrinkle-reducing attachment, then put on a generous coat of the gel and start your microcurrent routine. The larger head helps sculpt and tone larger areas, like the cheeks, jawline, and neck, while the smaller double-pronged attachment targets hard-to-reach areas, like around the lips, eyes, and brows, for a more lifted look.
FLEXIBILITY IN TERMS OF CONDUCTIVITY GEL: When the nodes come into contact with your chosen conductivity gel, which you will need to apply to the skin before starting your treatment, the microcurrents are created and transferred from the device to the underlying muscles. The gel primer then essentially acts as the conductor, directing the current into the skin and to the muscle, where it is stimulated, resulting in an immediate toning effect.
GREAT VALUE: Lifetrons Beauty Ultra Facial Lift is one of the most affordable microcurrent devices yet the best skin tightening machines for home use on the market.
