Does Microcurrent Gloves Work and How Does it Work?
Microcurrent gloves work and are known to be more effective as their counterpart microcurrent probes. Microcurrent runs through the gloves and these microcurrents stimulate the nerves and tissues of the skin. These microcurrents improve elasticity, collagen, and ATP production. (Adenosine triphosphate. This is a molecule that carries energy within cells. It is the main energy currency of the cell). These are the cells and properties that your facial skin needs to stay tight and toned.

Microcurrent Gloves Side Effects

Microcurrent Skin Therapy Treatment Preparation
Avoid using facial cream the night before treatment
There are facial creams that stay in the skin for more than 24 hours or are just simply hard to remove. One example of facial cream that stays in the skin for a period is Retinol. Microcurrents can push those remaining facial creams deep into your skin and in the process can possibly irritate the skin. This can lead to redness of the skin and puffiness for some.
The same goes for chemical peels that are applied to the skin. Avoid applying such before your microcurrent treatment to avoid having any skin allergies after treatment.
Microcurrent Skin Therapy Treatment / Alternatives
One of the challenges we always face in life is the challenge of making a choice. Should you go for a salad, a cheeseburger or a pizza? Do you want a beer or a glass of wine? Should you go left or go right? Should you trust Microcurrent or Radiofrequency or Microdermabrasion or Microneedling.... etc? Making tough choices shouldn’t be that hard, but it may seem like a tough choice when talking about your skin care preventive plan. To help you make an easier decision here's information for some of those choices.
RF Skin Tightening vs Microcurrent Skin Therapy Treatment
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening is a facial treatment that promotes the production of collagen. It uses kinetic/RF heat to wake up our facial skin and help it generate more collagen fiber. It also boosts the production of hyaluronic acid, a hydrating acid that helps the skin to stay plump and fresh. Overall, RF skin tightening is a great way to keep our facial skin looking taut.
RF Skin Tightening is also a non-invasive treatment. A Microcurrent treatment is a preventive care treatment to keep your skin wrinkle-free while combating symptoms of aging.. (using an Erasing and Educating technique) while RF Skin Tightening is effective, it is more of a short-term procedure to keep your skin looking younger and tighter. It is not educating the muscles, it is tightening the skin, where Microcurrent is doing both.
Is it safe to use a Microcurrent treatment along with an RF Skin Tightening treatment?
They are both safe and effective. However, it can be time-consuming and costly to do both. Imagine doing two different treatments for the same area. Won't hurt, but won't be as beneficial because It can also stress your face, doing too much at one time. The best solution is to choose the best treatment based on your need and current facial condition, your budget, and your time.
Microdermabrasion is done in two ways: first, it requires using a diamond tip to take off the skin’s outer layer, and the second technique is by using suction. Both techniques aim to remove the damaged part of the skin before rejuvenating it. It is a minimal procedure that is 100% safe for all skin types. Microdermabrasion is a treatment and cannot be used for preventive care, unlike the microcurrent skin therapy treatment. (Microdermabrasion does not educate the muscles.) Microcurrent educates the muscles as well as erase skin damage). Microdermabrasion can be performed before a Microcurrent treatment. It is booked as a separate treatment, it is not included with the Microcurrent Skin Treatment, but it 'can' be performed, if necessary. You will need to purchase it separately (for same day or before the Microcurrent appt.)
Note: This applies to Dermaplaning as well.)
Red Light Treatment Facial
Red Light Treatment Facial Therapy has been one of the first treatments introduced in the facial therapy industry. It was originally used by NASA scientists in their research and eventually evolved as a skincare therapy.
As the name implies, it uses RED light to stimulate the skin, leading to skin cell repair, growth, and increased collagen production.
Is it safe to use Microcurrent along with Red Light Facial Treatment?
Both treatments are accepted and revered in the facial spa world because they are painless and are significant treatments. However, it is not advisable to have both treatments together. There is no significant value or benefit to do them together.
