Even as someone who writes about beauty, I can't say I've really gotten the hype around facials. It wasn't until I had my first microcurrent treatment—a technology that uses a low-grade electrical current to help tighten your facial muscles and smooth your skin—that I realized maybe I've been a little too hard on the whole facial thing like, so what if I prefer a minute session with the hum of a machine in the background to a quiet, candlelit experience at a spa? For those of you new to the micocurrent game, you can think of it like a workout for your face. After a few sessions, the non-invasive treatment is said to help sculpt your face, tighten your skin, and even stimulate collagen production —no irritation, pain, or downtime included, tyvm.

What Are At-Home Microcurrent Devices, and Are They Worth the Splurge?

Microcurrent Facial: How It Works, Professional vs. At-Home, Costs & More

The beauty industry is rife with over the top claims about "miracle" skincare products and services, but one too-good-to-be-true innovation I can confidently get behind is the microcurrent facial. It involves using a low-grade electrical current to "train" your facial muscles to appear more lifted, tightened, and firm. In fact, its nickname is the "non-invasive facelift. You know it actually works because it has been used medically since the s, approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator to treat Bell's palsy and muscle paralysis. After noticing improved results in patients with atrophied, sagging facial muscles, microcurrent was then adopted as an anti-aging tool. Top facialists like Joanna Vargas , Ildi Pekar , and Shamara Bondaroff swear by it, while at-home tools like NuFace and Ziip have become increasingly popular in everyday skin routines.

They say good things come to those who wait, but at-home "facial trainer" devices that send microcurrents of electricity to the skin, claim to subtly lift and firm the face in just five minutes. Whether you're always down to test a new beauty device or feel wary of adding gizmos to an already-packed skin-care regimen, at-home microcurrent therapy devices make some serious claims, including boosted radiance, increased lymphatic drainage, stimulated collagen, and reduced fine lines over time. Before we recommend that you drop a few hundred dollars on a device and start zapping your face, we asked experts to break down how microcurrent technology actually works. For now, there isn't a wealth of data backing up the lofty claims of younger-looking, tighter skin. Weiss typically doesn't recommend the at-home devices to his patients, he says, unless they're young and have minimal skin laxity to begin with.
Microcurrent facials are one of the latest innovations to spark a conversation. This beauty treatment uses electricity to promote cell growth in skin. Sounds shocking but the procedure is noninvasive, injection-free, and painless. Extra bonus?
