Microcurrent facials are big business right now. In fact, they've become an integral part of beauty routines for Bella Hadid, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez and more.
Whether you’re looking to tone and tighten your complexion, stop the signs of ageing or blast fine lines and wrinkles, microcurrent technology boasts a whole host of skincare benefits.
Here, we reveal 5 reasons as to why we love it - as well as a handheld device that means you can take full advantage of the beauty treatment.
You can do it at home
Whilst many celebrities enjoy microcurrent facials in a salon - albeit before lockdown - there are devices that mean you can benefit from it at home. One of the most famous brands specialising in microcurrent is NuFACE. A mother and daughter team, the brand boasts a whole host of microcurrent devices, with their most famous being the NuFACE Mini Facial Toner.
Known as ‘the 5-minute facelift’, the device has two spheres which send gentle waves of microcurrent through the skin to energise and lift facial muscles.
It’s completely safe and non-invasive
The phrase ‘no-pain, no gain’ is completely untrue when it comes to the magic of microcurrent. Often referred to as a ‘non-surgical facelift’, microcurrent is a completely safe and pain-free way of sculpting and contouring your complexion. There's also no downtime afterwards meaning you can carry on with your day.
It really works
The NuFACE devices have a number of skin-boosting benefits. They work by giving off low-level current that is similar to the body’s natural current (this is why you can’t feel it).
Like a workout for your skin, the NuFACE microcurrent devices stimulate the muscles in your face, toning and tightening them. This results in a lifted, glowing, and healthy-looking appearance.
That's not all either, as other benefits include:
- Improved facial contours
- Better skin tone
- Reduced wrinkles
- Tightened and brightened skin
- A younger-looking appearance
It’s loved by A-Listers
In March, Bella Hadid took to social media to share her love for NuFACE's Trinity Facial Toning Device. After using the tool on set, she said she just had to get one of her own. And she's not alone. In 2016, Jennifer Aniston revealed she used the handheld device - followed by Miranda Kerr and Kate Hudson in 2017 and 2020. Kim Kardashian, Meryl Streep, and Jennifer Lopez are also said to use it.
Facialists to the stars are fans too. Shani Darden, who is known for treating Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley says she loves microcurrent and, when used regularly, it works well.
We even asked one of our customers, Kath, to trial the NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device. She said: “You can see my skin looks firmer. It also feels firmer and my pores aren't so large. When I apply my foundation, I notice that the make-up is going on smoother and that I look like I have used a primer, which I haven't. I also noticed that my eyes looked more toned and refreshed and less hooded.”
It isn't known as the '5-minute facelift’ for no reason. Put simply, you can complete an entire facial toning routine with the NuFACE device in just 5 minutes. This makes it a quick and simple addition to your skincare routine, no matter how busy you are.
