Microcurrent Facial Treatments: What’s the buzz?

June 5, 2020 • Live Well / Innovation

An anti-aging treatment so successful it’s been dubbed as the ‘Non-Surgical Face Lift’.

Microcurrent has been the talk of the town for a while. And for a good reason! When you hear about a facial treatment that makes you younger instantly, you probably have lots of questions. What is it? How does it work? Is it safe? This natural alternative to botox and fillers will transform your skin and give you a younger-looking, smooth and lifted face!

What is a microcurrent facial?

In short, a microcurrent facial is an anti-aging miracle skincare treatment. In other words, it’s a facial that’s focused on your skin and muscles. There are 43 facial and 26 muscles in your neck that naturally lose their tone and firmness through aging. Microcurrent therapy treatment utilizes a low-grade electrical current to “train” all those muscles. It contours, tones, firms and lifts the muscles and the skin. The result is a healthier complexion that makes you look younger.

How does it work?

The microcurrent encourages the production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) which leads to the creation and stimulation of structural proteins like elastin and collagen. Collagen is the main protein that your body uses to build muscle. Hence why this facial functions as a workout for your face. Furthermore, the non-invasive treatment triggers the body’s natural signals which induce tissue repair.

This causes a release of natural skin enhancement chemicals at a cellular level. As a result, damaged skin starts to repair and the production of collagen is stimulated.

Is a microcurrent facial safe?

Don’t worry, it’s painless and safe for most of the population. However, the treatment uses a low-grade electrical current. Therefore people with pacemakers or any kind of heart condition should avoid it. Moreover, pregnant women are advised against it as well. Most importantly, you should always discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with your doctor or aesthetician before starting any treatments.


The key benefits of this miraculous treatment

Firstly, the results are instantly visible. How? You go to the gym once and the results aren’t instant! But the microcurrent facial works both on your muscles and your skin! The current gives your collagen a boost and you end up with tighter skin and an incredible glow. Secondly, the benefits are more than skin deep.

This facial simultaneously erases signs of aging in the epidermis, and repairs and produces collagen in the dermis. Most people report that after just one treatment they noticed plumper-looking skin, more prominent cheekbones, lifted brows and more of a defined jawline. It’s like an amazing workout but for your face – with all the health benefits included!

In conclusion, it’s an amazing facial treatment. The only downside is that you have to get it regularly to maintain results. Think of it as going to the gym to stay in shape. And the best thing? Thanks to FOREO’s BEAR, you can have that treatment in the comfort of your own home.

  3. Jenna says:

    Can microcurrent lead to fat loss/volume loss in the face ? What evidence/scientific studies/clinical trials are there that demonstrate the effect (if any) of microcurrent on fat please? (Especially in the context of daily long term use). Is there proof that it absolutely cannot cause fat loss/volume loss please? I have read studies and seen microcurrent products that reduce abdominal fat, so I am confused and concerned.
    Thank you 🙂

    • carly says:

      Dear Jenna, please note that commercial salon equipment is stronger than the home use products (most devices created for home do not usually use more than 400 uA). Microcurrent is a low-level electrical current that mimics the body’s own and works on your face muscles, but does not cause loss of fat per se. For more information please contact our Customer Service. Kind regards 🙂

    How old do you have to be to get this

    • carly says:

      Hi there! Microcurrent facials in all honesty are designed for people over the age of 20 as they are developed to prevent aging. We believe it is best to start in your 20s, as a preventative treatment, but there is no upper age limit on using the microcurrent. Hope this help! Best regards 🙂

    This study seems to suggest that microcurrent can cause apoptosis of cells:


    When apoptosis occurs it can cause destruction of fat and therefore lead to volume loss. Is this a risk with home microcurrent devices please? The study seems to suggest it can occur from as little as 0.05mA (they didn’t go any lower, so it could potentially occur at even lower amperage). This has me concerned. Has effect on apoptosis been studied in relation to the Bear?

    • carly says:

      Dear Sarah, thank you for sharing your concerns with us! Please note that the BEAR™ has an Anti-Shock System™ that eliminates any chance of the microcurrent shocking your skin, resulting in maximum safety and effectiveness. Please also remember to use it with a water-based serum. This will help the microcurrents to penetrate the epidermis to reach the muscle therefore you should not feel a thing when the treatment is performing. However, it is not recommended that you use oil-based serum, or any creams as a conductor. Oil-based serums and creams will not react well with the device. We hope this helps! Kind regards 🙂

    Can I use it after strabismus eye surgery, obviously will wait till healed. But thereafter is it safe

    • carly says:

      Hi there, I would kindly advise you to consult your eye surgery doctor because every case is different and it is hard to generalise for eyes. Thank you and wishing you soon recovery! <3

  7. Mara says:

    Thank you
