While we all know that most guys are into gadgets and cool tools, it should be known that women appreciate good technology too.
One of the most buzzed-about cool technologies out there in the beauty space is microcurrent technology.
WHAT IS MICROCURRENT?
Microcurrent is a low-level, electrical current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative results when used regularly. And when used correctly, you feel little to no sensation.
Dermatologist Dr. Richard Sherman states “Microcurrent stimulates, exercises and retrains lax and atrophic facial muscles, all associated with the natural aging process.”
So it’s not surprising that this technology has been used on patients experiencing a form of nerve-paralysis, leading to atrophied, sagging facial muscles. The low-level current retrained their muscles, which is what lead to the anti-aging application for the aesthetic industry.
Now, microcurrent treatments are available in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin.
HOW DOES MICROCURRENT WORK?
Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through the skin, tissues and down to the facial muscles.
In fact, microcurrent has been shown to stimulate ATP production, which drives the creation of key structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin.
This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles, similar to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies.
We’ve come to think of it as fitness for your face!
Unlike anywhere else on the body, the facial muscles are connected to the skin, so the result of energizing the muscle is often an improved, lifted appearance.

REAL RESULTS WITH MICROCURRENT TREATMENTS
The NuFACE Classic device shown here was the first to the party.
Carol Cole started her career in the 1980s as an esthetician at the famed Golden Door Spa in Southern California. Specializing in microcurrent facials, she quickly developed a loyal client list of celebrities who raved about the microcurrent machines.
Soon, Cole realized the need for a non-invasive, at-home, easy-to-use version of her microcurrent facials. And thus, the NuFACE Classic was born.
Today, the NuFACE Trinity (the newer version of the NuFACE Classic) is the only FDA-cleared, handheld multi-solution device offering a “5-minute facial lift” using microcurrent therapy.
And the results speak for themselves.
