MICROCURRENT

Microcurrent facials introduce a low-grade electrical current delivered through a small machine onto the face muscles. The muscles contract and are meant to be trained—just like a gym workout—to lift and sculpt the face. Microcurrent is used to lift the eyebrows, define cheekbones, tighten and firm skin, and stimulate collagen growth.

FALL TO WINTER: SKINCARE GUIDE

When the first winter breeze blows through the trees you can feel the magic in the air. Cold weather brings people closer, and we yearn for love, warmth, and connection. However, transitioning to the new season might also mean to be the beginning of our winter skin woes, especially if we suffer from dryness and flakes. During this time of the year, our skin loses its moisture, causing it to become dry, itchy, and irritable. In some cases, it can even lead to psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions.

Switching to a skincare routine designed to keep our skin healthy in cold temperatures doesn’t have to be difficult. With just a few adjustments, you can maintain a radiant complexion year-round.

Here’s a handy guide to transitioning your skincare routine for winter.

Best Skincare Guide for Winter:

1. Cleanse 

The key to keeping skin clean and free of accumulated dirt is cleansing twice daily, both in the morning and at night. However, foam-based cleansers are not recommended during Winter as it contributes to drying out the skin, which is why we suggest switching to an oil-based cleanser that gently removes impurities without stripping moisture. There’s no better like:

Eminence Organic Skin Care Firm Skin Acai Cleanser 8.4 fl. oz - DermstoreEMINENCE FIRM SKIN ACAI CLEANSER– This cleanser is Antioxidant-rich acai berries that are perfect for revitalizing mature skin. This cream cleanser also blends hyaluronic acid and seabuckthorn oil to restore the appearance of elasticity to the skin and present a more youthful look. Cruelty-free and formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, animal by-products, phthalates, GMOs, and triclosan.

 

2. Moisturize

During the winter season, reach for heavy-duty creams and moisturizers to hydrate parched skin, and support the skin’s barrier to help protect the skin from the damaging effects of the cold weather.  We recommend searching for formulas made with hydrating ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, essential oils, and/or glycerin. For example, we like the iS Clinical Moisturising Complex because it offers up to  24 hours of hydration for a soft, smooth, and healthy-looking complexion. We recommend:

iS Clinical Moisturizing Complex | In Stock | Nationwide DeliveryiS CLINICAL MOISTURIZING COMPLEX – This moisturizer by iS Clinical has a rich, creamy texture that absorbs quickly into the skin with a non-greasy finish. Its protective barrier is packed with antioxidants to guard the skin against environmental damage. The moisturizing ingredients that we can’t get enough of in iS Clinical Moisturising Complex are hyaluronic acid and glycerin, as they can retain and restore impressive amounts of moisture. Plus, vitamins and bio-nutrients help maintain your skin’s health throughout cooler months.

Eminence Organic Skin Care Apricot Body Oil 8.2 fl. Oz - DermstoreEMINENCE APRICOT BODY OIL– Eminence Organics Apricot Body Oil combines moisturizing apricot oil with grapeseed, jojoba, and seabuckthorn oils to leave skin supple and touchably soft. This natural body oil blend is also packed with antioxidants that protect skin from free radical damage and minimize signs of aging like wrinkles and uneven skin tone. This multipurpose oil can also be used to hydrate very dry skin on the elbows and knees, or you can add a drop or two to your favorite moisturizer for even richer hydration.

3. Exfoliate

Fall and winter’s dry conditions can be highly irritating to your skin, and you may begin to notice flaky, dry patches on your face and body. Exfoliation is a great way to stimulate the production of the skin’s natural oils and product absorption. To maintain skin in the autumn and winter, choose a gentle exfoliator and exfoliate as part of your night routine to avoid making your skin more vulnerable during the day. If your skin needs a jump start, consider a Chemical Peel. Rather than working on the surface of the skin, chemical exfoliation works at the cellular level to improve the condition and appearance of the skin. Try this:

KUL - Exfoliating Cleanser – HEMP.coKUL CBD Exfoliating Cleanser This sulfate-free, polishing cleanser combines the purest quality Full Spectrum CBD with Apricot Seed to gently exfoliate & remove makeup, oil & dead skin cells to reveal healthy, radiant-looking skin. You can see effective results immediately as this sulfate-free, polishing cleanser travels deep into pores to remove the impurities & helps condition the skin. Balancing probiotics & antioxidants encourage smoother, brighter, more even skin tone.

4. Protect

Our skin can be damaged by UV rays all around the year. Use a mineral-based SPF for its lightness, breathability, ocean-friendliness, and ease of use. We recommend:

Eclipse SPF 50 | SPF 50 Sunscreen | iS ClinicaliS CLINICAL ECLIPSE SPF 50– Formulated specifically for daily use and extended outdoor activities, Eclipse SPF 50+ is a unique fusion of scientifically advanced physical sunscreens – transparent Titanium Dioxide and micronized Zinc Oxide – coupled with pure Vitamin E. This antioxidant-rich blend provides superior water-resistant broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Eclipse SPF 50+ is an ultra sheer, lightweight formula that absorbs quickly for a non-greasy matte finish.

BBalanced - Natural Medicine | EMINENCE ORGANIC SKIN CARE - LIP TRIO KIT COUNT/PK 3EMINENCE LIP TRIO–  Erase the appearance of winter dryness and treat your lips with a naturally effective three-step treatment. Gentle fruit enzymes refine the lip area, followed by an extra-rich masque that deeply hydrates. Finish with a delicious minty non-petroleum-based take-home balm that stimulates lip-plumping collagen.

5. Nourish

The most effective way to get healthy skin is to maintain a good diet and drink enough water. Eat squashes like butternut and pumpkin that are rich in beta-carotene. This helps to aid cell renewal, regulates skin function, and promotes collagen production. Also, aim to incorporate “healthy fats” into your diet, including foods like salmon, avocado, and nuts. These foods contain essential omega-3 fatty acids, which improve the health of skin cell membranes. When eaten regularly, you can help reduce inflammatory skin conditions and improve the overall appearance of your skin.

To give your skin an extra boost of moisture, use a humidifier to maintain a more comfortable humidity level in your home.

When it comes to fall and winter skincare, the above adjustments would help with your winter skin woes, even when the temperatures drop. If you’d like to consult for personalized skincare recommendations, visit DESUAR Spa at our three branches across LA.

Best Aesthetic Treatments for the Autumn

Fall breeze and autumn leaves. A shift to a new season means a change to our skincare routines too because it’s not just the leaves that change with the welcoming of autumn; your skin does, too. Skin tightness, dry patches, flakiness, and eczema flare-ups can dampen the changing season. Critical symptoms of “autumn skin” include dryness, dull and sallow skin tone, sun spots, flaking, and irritation as well as the flare-up of some chronic conditions. Luckily, there are many treatments available at DESUAR Spa that our skin can benefit to autumn-proof our skin

Fall is for Facials

Fall is the best time of year to rejuvenate your skin and repair all the summer sun damage. DESUAR Spa is proud to offer highly effective dry skin therapy. Dry skin refers to the amount of oil we produce within the skin. Many people associate dryness with dehydration. However, if the oil levels within your skin are correct, the water content of the skin is almost always healthy. Our facials will help give your skin the moisture it needs! Our customized facial treatments use a variety of products, massage techniques, and equipment that will leave your skin fresh and hydrated. Facials are vital for repairing your skin. The effects of sun, wind, pollution, etc. can cause permanent damage if they’re not addressed. Facials can help reverse this damage and keep your skin in its best shape. Book a facial here.

Aesthetic treatment options for the Autumn

In order to maximize the results from a treatment, it’s important to plan according to the season and your schedule. Autumn provides the perfect storm of elements to achieve top results and a discreet and comfortable recovery. Here are some treatments we recommend taking advantage of during the sweater weather. 

Top 3 Steps to Upgrade your Autumn / Winter Skin Care Routine - Dr Terry LoongChemical peels– After the summer you may be left with more sun-damaged skin, age spots, and wrinkles. Chemical peels are incredible for so many skin concerns. Lines and wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, Acne scarring, and Pigmentation are a few. However, practitioners generally agree that the best time of year to get skin peels is autumn/winter. Chemical peels use a reactive chemical solution to remove the undesirable layer of skin. A chemical peel sounds like a harsh treatment, but in reality, it can greatly vary from gentle to strong depending on the type of solution used for your skin’s needs.

  • Microneedling– This treatment requires strict SPF use and limited sun exposure making it another great treatment to consider during the months ahead. It’s clinically proven to help stimulate collagen production and is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses ultra-thin titanium needles which create tiny micro-injuries in the very first layer of the skin’s surface.
  • HydraFacial: The HydraFacial MD® resurfacing procedure is a wonderful all-in-one way for us to care for your skin. The HydraFacial® cleanses, peels, extracts, unclogs, de-greases, purifies, and hydrates the skin for instantly glowing skin with a reduction of fine lines, acne, and uneven skin tone, without irritation or downtime. Unlike other systems, HydraFacial® hydrates not with water, but with the Vortex-Fusion® method using Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, nourish, and protect! Signature + includes any booster and lymphatic
  • Dermaplaning – If you haven’t already booked a dermaplaning appointment with us, Fall is the perfect time to give it a try! This not only removes peach fuzz but also does an amazing job of getting rid of dead skin cells to give your skin a fresh (& smooth) new surface. It’s the perfect treatment for the Fall season as it helps your skin shed all of the dead cells that you accumulated from a few months spent in the sun.

  • CRYO COOLRESTORE BODY FAT REDUCTION & FIRMING– Fall is the ideal season to spend some time reaching your weight loss or body shaping goals. While the treatments can be a welcome and warm retreat from cooler temps and rainy days, the season’s warmer layers act to veil your transformation, as treatment plans generally require six to eight sessions to see optimal results. This leads to greater excitement once you finally reveal your stunning results, whether that’s in an elegant, body-hugging holiday gown or on a tropical vacation in the new year.
  • Laser hair removal – If you’re looking for a more permanent solution for unwanted facial hair or excess body hair, laser hair removal is the perfect option. A course of treatments to fully destroy the follicle can leave the skin temporarily sensitive to sunlight and you may experience some redness and irritation immediately after. For exposed skin areas such as legs, arms and face, consider starting the treatment in September.

Autumn indeed isn’t all fun and games, especially not where your skincare is concerned. Thankfully, there are treatments to optimize your skincare routine for the season.

8 Skincare Myths Uncovered

Do you take a Beauty Myth as a Rule? You better think twice!

Beauty myths run rampant throughout our lives. They are often shared as facts. We hear about them on social media, from our moms, and friends, but some beauty myths are just that: Myths.
While science is helping us debunk these myths one by one, many of us are still lost when it comes to what we should believe about skincare claims and what’s purely made up.

In this blog, we’re uncovering the Truth Behind the Skincare Myths to help you make better choices for your skin!

Myth: Packaging doesn’t matter, what counts most is what’s inside.

All photos courtesy of Google

The safety of cosmetic packaging | Article | Packaging Europe

Fact: Packaging is a crucial component of skincare products. If the packaging exposes what’s inside to light and air, that could mean the key ingredients will lose effectiveness much sooner.

It’s best to look for skincare products with bio-active ingredients that only come packaged in containers that are airtight or keep air and fingers out as much as possible and that are opaque or have UV-coating to protect them from both light and air.  DESUAR Spa, guarantees fact-checked products for every visit!

Myth: Clean Beauty guarantees a safe and natural product.

Clean Beauty: A Significant Trend - Prospector Knowledge Center

Fact: Good skincare is about a smart combination of ingredients that are safe and effective. The truth is far more nuanced than simply believing everything natural is good and anything chemical is bad.

Some organic and natural skincare is great, especially for those who don’t struggle with many skin concerns, but some can be irritating and clog pores. Botanicals, essential oils, and plant extracts can be irritants, so those with sensitive skin are better off selecting lab-made products formulated for sensitive skin. Some natural oils, such as grapeseed, rosehip, and marula oil, are great for treating skin concerns and can work wonders when used in tandem with chemically produced ingredients.

Myth: Skincare Products that contain sulfates, parabens, and mineral oil pose a risk to your health.

4 Reasons Why You Need to Go Paraben-Free Skincare | Be Beautiful India

Fact: Sulfates, parabens, and mineral oil are brilliant ingredients in the world of skincare with decades of research proving their efficacy and safety, yet they continue to be wrongly vilified and maligned. Just when we think the unfair negative hype about them had subsided, it gears up again, often adding new misleading information to the story.

Parabens are a food-grade preservative and are also found naturally in plants such as raspberry, cherry, carrot, and onions. Mineral oil is a colorless, odorless oil that’s considered completely safe and benign on the skin.

Myth: Skincare products work best at night because skin repairs itself while you sleep.

Winter Skincare: Perfect night skincare for winter season

Fact: Your skin is receptive to and benefits from a wide variety of ingredients no matter the time of day. Your skin isn’t keeping track of what time of day it is, so use products and ingredients based on what works best for your routine. Sunscreen of course is the obvious exception since it is only needed during daylight hours.

Based on the research, the optimal time for skin or the body to heal is during the day when our bodies are active and in motion. This further stimulates blood flow, oxygen, cell renewal, and other body functions which aids in the overall healing and maintenance processes.

Myth: You should choose either a BHA or AHA exfoliant and never use them together.

 

Fact: For some people, AHAs and BHAs can be used together – with either alternating use or applying at the same time – with extremely positive results.

The key reason for using an AHA and BHA exfoliant at the same time is whether your skin needs more thorough exfoliation. This might be the case for those who have advanced signs of sun damage, deep wrinkles, stubborn clogged pores, bumps, or persistent dull, flaky skin.

 

 

 

Myth: A tingling sensation when using a product guarantees its work.

Do Skin Care Products Need To Tingle To Prove They're Working? | HuffPost Life

Fact: Trying higher concentrations of exfoliating ingredients would cause some people to experience a slight, short-lived tingling sensation. Sometimes, this is just the skin’s initial response to a bioactive ingredient. In the case of exfoliating acids, the benefits these provide overweigh the brief irritation.

Ideally, this sensation will subside once the skin acclimates to the exfoliating ingredient. If it does not, it would be best to stop using the product (if may be too much for your skin.)

The most common ingredients that cause a cool or tingling sensation on the skin include denatured or SD alcohol, menthol, menthyl lactate, peppermint oil, camphor, and eucalyptus. Avoid products that contain these ingredients, especially when they are among the first ingredients listed.

Myth: Niacinamide, Vitamin C or Retinol are not advisable to use altogether.

What Are the Top Niacinamide Benefits for Skin? | SELF

Fact: Retinol, vitamin C, and niacinamide can be used together without concern. In fact, using all three has a synergistic impact which enhances your results.

Although all these superstar ingredients are incredibly effective on their own, research has shown that combining niacinamide with retinol can keep skin calm and enhance tolerability while retinol works its wrinkle-fighting magic. These two ingredients work in different yet complementary ways to reduce signs of aging, while also addressing other issues like enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. It’s also safe to use both niacinamide and vitamin C, either together in the same product, or combined from different products that you layer one over the other.

Whenever you’re incorporating new active ingredients or combining advanced formulas, it’s smart to introduce them into your routine gradually. As long as your skin tolerates them well, you can increase the frequency of use as desired.

Myth: Dark circles can be easily corrected if you get the right eye cream

Best Photo App to Remove Dark Circles Under Eyes In 2022 | PERFECT

Fact: Getting rid of dark cycles can be very difficult but even more so if you’ve inherited the problem as a family trait. When the cause of your dark circles is inherited an eye cream won’t be of much help but lasers and certain cosmetic corrective procedures might be able to help.

Some dark circles around the eyes respond well to ingredients like niacinamide, retinol, vitamin C, and azelaic acid. Applying a leave-on alpha or beta hydroxy acid exfoliant and of course, daily application of mineral-based sunscreen can also help. But if you have a genetic/physiological propensity for dark circles, it’s going to take more than skincare to address the underlying causes.

We believe that making the best choices for your skin starts with understanding the truth about skincare. We’re here to help you stay on top of all the beauty myths – old and new – so you can feel confident about your products and skincare routine.

Labor Day Blog/ Facials Promo

When Labor Day comes around it signifies the end of Summer and the time to transition our closet (no more white clothes after Labor Day!) and our skincare routine for the Fall months.

Keeping your skin hydrated and plump as well as keeping your skin clear starts with the proper skincare regime and regular spa facials.

For those with sensitive, dry or mature skin looking for anti-aging, hydration, and brighter, more plump skin, we recommend coming to Desuar DTLA for the Hydrafacial. Hydrafacial is an expedited facial treatment that uses the latest technology to deliver various skin benefits. The treatment begins with a cleanse by one of Desuar Spa’s master estheticians and is followed by the Hydrafacial Syndeo treatment of exfoliation, and serum infusion to increase hydration and protect the skin from free radicals and sun damage. After the Hydrafacial, we provide LED Light to calm the skin from inflammation, and redness and to speed up collagen production in the face for anti-aging skincare benefits. Hydrafacial has many benefits including clearing clogged pores, refreshing the skin by adding nutrients, and even Lymphatic Drainage. You may also add on special treatments like PERK for your lips or under the eyes for a more advanced facial treatment. Get rid of your undereye bags and add extra hydration to dry lips during the cold season with Perk. For more information about the Desuar Spa Hydrafacial Syndeo, click here.

 

Clients with acne-prone skin should book a visit for PlaSon, an acne-clearing wonder machine.  PlaSon uses advanced plasma technology to treat acne by removing bacteria and aiding in transdermal absorption within the skin. And, it stimulates skin regeneration and boosts collagen for clearer, healthier, firmer skin. PlaSon will get rid of active acne, significantly reduce sebum production, and treat acne scarring and unwanted skin pigmentation.

Another client favorite is our Desuar Spa Signature IS Clinical Fire & Ice Facial. If you want glowing, hydrated, and plump skin in just one visit, we recommend the Fire & Ice Facial. This facial uses clean, science-driven skincare by IS Clinical for an amazing, celebrity skin treatment.  Sometimes called the “Hollywood Facial”, Desuar Spa Fire & Ice Facial is a facial treatment consisting of two heated face masks. The first one aims to release and remove impurities out and resurface your skin through heat, while the other heat-infused mask is hydrating to soften the look of fine lines and relax you with self-heating mineral energy stimulating the skin’s natural processes of hydration, vasodilation, and drives the performance of skin care products.

 

With the many anti-aging benefits of regular facials, we recommend that clients book a facial monthly or at minimum, once per season to reset their skin and treat skin inflammation, reactive skin, and dimmish signs of aging.

How to improve your skin with Microchanneling?

Beauty is always something everyone desires to have, and there are wide array of treatments,
products and services in the market, and sometimes, it can be hard to keep track! It’s especially
hard to determine which are actually beneficial and provide visible results in comparison to
mediocre treatments that won’t do the trick. Ultimately, it all boils down to what is best for you,
and which procedures your skin responds to the best.

The most reliable and easiest way to determine which procedures you should be getting

regularly is to schedule a skin assessment with a qualified professional in the aesthetic field.
At DESUAR Spa, we offer the best of procedures targeting what your skin really needs
addressing its problems offering a more more in-depth treatments like Procell Microchanneling
Facial, which can be an excellent choice for anyone who wants to address certain skin
conditions or just needs to freshen up their appearance!

What Is Microchanneling?

Microchanneling is a go to treatment for acne scars, surgery scars and stretch marks. Scars improvement occurs by breaking down the old tissue and fostering the development of healthier skin. It is a procedure that produces a controlled wound response in the outermost layer of dead skin while forming channels that stimulate the body to repair and fill these microscopic perfusions by generating new collagen and elastin. During the process, a serum containing stem cells are introduced through the channels feeding the cells all the nutrients needed in the repairing/rebuilding process providing even more profound results.

Microchanneling involves a 3-stage process:

Micro-needles create micro-channels – Precision micro-needles are tapped into the skin creating uniform micro-channels. A single pass over the face will create hundreds of thousands of micro-channels.

Stimulation of a healing response – Each micro-channel is surrounded by healthy tissue, which enhances the healing process. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process begins which initiates the formation of new collagen.

Smoothening of Skin – Over time, the repeated healing process will build new collagen, creating healthier skin, improving the surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin.

What is ProCell Microchanneling?

Acne is a skin condition most common in teens and young adults. It can be found anywhere on the body and is a skin condition that consists of small pimples that can be either white or black. These blackheads and whiteheads are commonly known as comedowns.

  • Blackheads: Blackheads are the pimples formed when someone has acne. These pimples open on the surface of the skin and have a black appearance because of the reaction it has to oxygen present in the air.

  • Whiteheads: Whiteheads on the other hand are closed under the surface of the skin, since they’re not interacting with the oxygen present in the air, they have a white appearance.

For those that suffer from acne-related problems, microchanneling can be a great solution as it helps boost topical serums and nutrients into the skin by a whopping 300%. This helps your skin rejuvenate faster and also conceals scar tissues and fine lines that are quite prevalent in acne.

Is Chemical Peel good for skin?

A chemical peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers, revealing the more youthful skin underneath. Chemical peels can reduce or improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin coloring and other skin imperfections. Different chemicals determine the depth of your peel and type of skin condition treated.

There are a number of reasons people may get chemical peels. They may be trying to treat a variety of things, including:

  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • sun damage
  • acne scars
  • hyperpigmentation
  • scars
  • melasma
  • uneven skin tone or redness

Yeah! You got it right! Chemical peel is good for your skin! Not only are they important in maintaining the health of your skin, but they are also one of the most effective facial treatments there is. It can be used to correct above skin issues.  Another wonderful asset of chemical peeling is that there is a peel available for most every skin type.

A lot of people are intimidated by chemical peels. And while there really isn’t a need to be, there are a few surprising things one needs to know to ensure the best possible experience and results, according to peel expert, Kerry Benjamin.

1.Numerous Factors Determine the Strength of a Peel

Like most people, you probably judge the strength of a peel on the percentage of active ingredients. The formulation, acid, pH, as well as the percentage, dictate the strength of a peel. There can be pain and downtime—but there are medical-grade peel options today, with a low pH, that are medium-depth peels and are not highly invasive or painful and don’t require considerable downtime.

2.Actual Peeling Isn’t Always a Sign That the Treatment Is Working

It seems kind of scary to have your skin flaking off, but did you know that you don’t always have to actually peel after a peel to see the benefits. Surprising, isn’t it? According to Benjamin, the visible peeling is just a side effect. The actual ‘peeling’ is happening at the cellular level. She explains that this is the reason why most people will stop experiencing visible flaking after a few peels.

Typically after a peel, or a series of peels, the skin should look more glowing, pores tighter, and the skin tone more even.”

3.You Don’t Have to Be an Adult to Use Peels

If you thought peels were only for those with wrinkles, you thought wrong. Peels with salicylic acid, can be used to effectively treat acne at any age. They exfoliate the top layer of your skin, causing natural cell turnover to speed up, and help minimize oil production, unclog pores, and reduce the formation of blackheads and whiteheads.

4.Peels Can Be Gentle

Certain peels can actually be quite gentle and effective for those with sensitive skin. According to the expert, Medium depth peels cause little to no discomfort, have minimal visible peeling, and cause your skin to look glowing after the treatment. Phenol peels, on the other hand, go deep into the dermis and require you to undergo general anesthesia—these are the ones that need to be performed by a dermatologist.

5.You Shouldn’t Workout After a Peel

Exercising for 24 hours after your peel disrupts the healing process and encourages inflammation. So, If you were planning on a workout after your peel, you might want to reconsider.

6.You Shouldn’t Use a Retinol If You’re Using a Peel

According to Benjamin, Post-treatment, clients should use mild products without any harsh acids or vitamin A for five to seven days. Patients should keep their skin moisturized and apply ample SPF, as well as avoid the sun during this period.

7.Your Skin Care Professional Should Prepare your Skin prior to applying the Peeling Solution

You want the solution to be applied directly to your skin so you can get even results. They should exfoliate your skin with Desuar Spa to remove any loose, dead skin cells, first.

 

 

What is Age Rewind Microcurrent Facial?

Growing Old is Inevitable, but growing older with grace is a choice.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As we age, our skin tends to loose its elasticity and sag. While ageing is inevitable, feeling good and looking good is also certain! Take your skin and facial muscles on a journey toward perfection and beauty with Microcurrent, your 5-minute facial lift.

Microcurrent technology is one of the hottest things in the anti-aging industry today. Widely known as the nonsurgical face-lift, a microcurrent facial diminishes signs of aging, improves your face contour, and brightens your complexion. As its name suggests, it makes use of low-voltage electrical current to stimulate collagen and elastin production in your skin. It also repairs damaged tissues and re-educates the facial muscles to become firmer and tighter. It is a cosmetic treatment where a person uses a special handheld device to deliver tiny currents of electricity to the face. These microcurrents stimulate the skin and muscles with the aim of improving a person’s appearance.

Microcurrent therapy, a form of electrotherapy, was then introduced to the United States in the late 1970s by Chinese physician Dr. Thomas Wing. He used microcurrent in an attempt to treat Bell’s palsy, a condition that paralyzes the facial muscles on one side of the face. While no evidence proved that microcurrent therapy was effective in treating this facial condition, Dr. Wing did discover other skin benefits in his patients such as a smoother skin tone and a younger-looking visage.

This is why microcurrent facials have been widely recommended by aestheticians and facialists to reduce and delay visible signs of aging. Given that the low-voltage current mimics your body’s natural electrical current, it’s a safe yet effective anti-aging treatment.

Microcurrent devices have two electrodes on one end, which deliver the current of electricity. This does not involve any surgery. A person remains awake throughout the treatment and can continue their usual activities immediately.

Benefits of Microcurrent Facial:

  • Limited scientific research suggests that microcurrent treatments may help to lift and tighten the muscles in the area and stimulate collagen and elastin, helping your skin look smoother, brighter and more rejuvenated.
  • Electrical stimulation can improve blood flow to the skin. This may improve the health of skin cells, make the skin look healthier, or increase plumpness.
  • It Re-Trains the Facial Muscles for Improved Facial Contour. By increasing ATP levels within your body, a microcurrent facial helps to re-energize your facial muscles to improve muscle tone. Think of it as a form of “face gym” to get firmer facial muscles. As such, you get to enjoy improved facial contouring such as reduced skin sagging and a more defined jawline after the treatment.
  • It Boosts Blood Circulation to the Face While Reducing Facial Puffiness. Besides enhancing collagen production and muscle tone, microcurrent facials also increase blood circulation to the face. At the cellular level, this improves nutrient and oxygen supply that results in a more radiant and healthier complexion. 
  • It Gives Immediate Results With a Cumulative Effect
    But why are microcurrent facials touted as the “5-Minute Face-Lift”? The answer lies in the immediate results experienced right after the procedure is done. Expect more defined cheekbones and jawlines, reduced forehead lines and eye wrinkles, and a glowing complexion, all without any downtime.
    One thing to note though is that these benefits have a cumulative effect. In other words, facial improvements are more pronounced and longer-lasting with regular treatments. To maintain the anti-aging benefits, schedule a follow-up session every few weeks as recommended by your aesthetician.
  • It Is Relatively Painless
    Unlike other forms of anti-aging treatments such as Botox or fillers, microcurrent facials are non-invasive and non-surgical. As such, you don’t have to worry about needles or knives touching your skin.

Are microcurrent facials safe?

Research from 2021 states that microcurrent treatments are “relatively safe” and have few side effects.

Microcurrents are not strong enough to cause injury, so when a person uses these devices correctly, they should not hurt or cause skin damage. However, some people should not have microcurrent facials. This includes people with:

  • Pregnancy
  • Active acne or other inflammatory skin conditions
  • Heart issues, e.g. have a pacemaker in your body
  • Had Botox or fillers two weeks before a microcurrent facial
  • Have metal implants in your face

Another potential risk comes from unregulated or untested microcurrent devices. When trying a microcurrent facial at home, a person should always use a device approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Alternatively, people should seek treatment from a licensed professional.

How Is  Microcurrent Facial Done?

There are two ways to get a microcurrent facial done — professional or at-home treatments.

Professional Treatment

For professional treatments, your aesthetician will first apply a thin layer of conductive gel on your face. He or she will then use two hand-held prongs that are attached to a microcurrent machine to deliver low-level electrical current to your skin.

DESUAR Spa, recommends 10 treatments for long lasting results and cumulative benefits for $300 ( 80 mins session).

At-Home Treatment

The other option is to use at-home microcurrent devices to enjoy this facial treatment in the comfort of your own home. Make sure these at-home gadgets come with conductive gel too. These devices are also cheaper when compared to a professional microcurrent facial — they range from $200-$500 for an at-home treatment whenever you want.

However, the downside is that at-home microcurrent devices are less powerful than the professional-grade microcurrent machines used in spas. As such, the benefits may not be as potent or as long-lasting when you opt for at-home treatment.

What to Do After Your Treatment to Get the Best Results

To get the best results from this facial treatment, make sure to wear sunscreen to protect your skin against harmful UV rays if you aren’t already doing so. As a general rule, applying SPF 30 and above should be an integral step in your daily skincare routine but more so after a microcurrent facial.

At the same time, avoid activities that will cause collagen breakdown and undo the beneficial effects of your microcurrent facial. Some examples are smoking and suntanning, which destroy your skin’s collagen levels and trigger premature skin aging.

Even though microcurrent facials can be on the pricey side, think of them as a long-term investment for younger-looking skin.

Why is Microdermabrasion popular?

Why is Microdermabrasion so popular?

Known to be the most popular skin clinic and beauty salon staples, those that spent some time in the aesthetic skin care industry will agree that microdermabrasion is really a facial superstar.

This treatment has always been a popular treatment on the high street since it gained some traction in the 1990s, and has remained as popular as ever. Various different dermabrasion treatments have appeared over the course of time. As far back as 1500BC Egyptian physicians would use a type of sandpaper to abrase the top layer of the skin to remove scars.

Essentially, there are two main components of microdermabrasion: peeling and cleansing. The abrasive material painlessly buffs away dead skin cells and encourages healthier skin to grow in its place. The suction helps to remove dirt and debris from the surface of the skin and within the pores. You don’t need to do much to prepare for microdermabrasion, but your dermatologist can help you determine whether the process is right for you and offer advice on preparation. If you scar easily or are prone to cold sores, microdermabrasion might not be for you. Depending on your needs, a session can last anywhere from ten minutes to over an hour. Your skin might look red or flaky following a microdermabrasion session, but thankfully that doesn’t last more than a few days in the most extreme cases. Results are visible not long after a session, as your skin is very quick to repair and grow following an abrasive treatment.

The Microdermabrasion Machine

The first microdermabrasion machine was invented in Italy in 1985 by two Doctors, Mattioli and Brutto. These rose to popularity through the 1990s and became commonplace in skin clinics throughout the early 2000s.

These microdermabrasion machines collected the abraded skin and siphoned it into a container instead of it be aerosolized, which could cause infection to the practitioner.

The professional microdermabrasion machines are also more affordable than other more advanced treatments such as radio frequency and photo rejuvenation. These often means it’s a go to first machine to buy for skin businesses.

The rise in the availability of home care machines does come with some potential problems, however.

There are currently no manufacturing performance standards that have been set for microdermabrasion machines. The FDA has classified that microdermabrasion machines are a class 1 medical device. This means machines don’t need clinical efficiency to be sold.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

The reason for the popularity of microdermabrasion is that it is a feel-good treatment. It helps improve many skin problem areas with minimal downtime and works on all skin types and skin colors. You can feel it doing something, you can see the exfoliated skin, your skin appears smoother and brighter. It is most often performed on the face but can be performed on upper thighs, buttocks, abdomen and hips. Prior to treatment, a consultation should be done with a dermatologist to go over your skin type and how the procedure will work. As you prepare for treatment after the consult, avoid sunburns, do not wax or shave the treatment area, and on the day of treatment, make sure all makeup is removed. Once you are prepared, treatment can begin.

1. TREATS THE SIGNS OF AGING

Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment for wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. It allows more collagen and hyaluronic acid to be produced. In turn, skin following a microdermabrasion session is smoother and healthier. Another common change that aging skin undergoes is the appearance of discolored patches of skin or age spots. Microdermabrasion can help to treat these and even out skin tone by eliminating the melanocytes responsible for the darker tones. Your self-esteem might see a significant boost following a microdermabrasion treatment.

2. TREATS ACNE

Microdermabrasion is effective at treating facial and body acne in the short term, drastically reducing the severity and duration of a breakout. The main cause of acne is excess levels of sebum, or oil in the skin. Microdermabrasion cleanses existing oil and inhibits future overproduction by removing the layer of skin most responsible for producing oil. In a much cleaner, less oily environment, new skin is much healthier and less prone to acne.

3. IT IS SAFE

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, superficial peeling therapy. It acts as a manual and chemical exfoliant. During the procedure, a technician uses a minimally abrasive instrument to remove dead skin cells and promote growth of fresh skin cells. Microdermabrasion has been FDA-approved since 1996 and is widely practiced by cosmetic dermatologists and aestheticians.

4. RESULTS ARE QUICK AND LONG LASTING

If dull, tired-looking skin is plaguing you, a microdermabrasion treatment might be just what you’re looking for. The procedure brightens skin within a few hours to a few days post-treatment. You can typically expect to see results from just one treatment, though you might opt for ongoing sessions to keep skin looking refreshed and revived. While not guaranteed, results can often last up to a year.

5. IT IS FASTER, EASIER AND MORE AFFORDABLE THAN OTHER TREATMENTS

Microdermabrasion is quick and convenient, typically lasting no more than 30 minutes. The procedure itself is virtually painless and while some mild redness and irritation might occur immediately following treatment, it subsides within a few days at most.

Compared to other skin resurfacing treatments, microdermabrasion is much more cost-effective and requires minimal downtime. You can opt to get a microdermabrasion treatment on its own or as an add-on service during another type of facial treatment. It’s best to consult with a specialist who can make recommendations depending on your specific concern and skin type.

Remember to always book your microdermabrasion treatments at a dermatology and cosmetic center. At-home treatments are not as effective and can damage the skin. A licensed dermatologist will ensure that this treatment is right for you and perform the treatment safely. Your dermatologist can answer your questions about microdermabrasion and other exfoliating therapies at a consultation appointment.
