The Electrical Facial

Fall/Winter 2011 Issue
What It Is:
More of a toning technique than a cleansing one, electrical-based facials help to somewhat tighten up slightly saggy skin while alleviating puffiness- Vargas says to think of these treatments (specially microcurrent facials) like a trip to the gym for the face…
How It Works:
The pain-free treatment uses a dual-prong-tipped instrument that delivers safe levels of electrical current to reposition underlying facial muscles and deeper layers of skin- it is also said to increase circulation and collagen production.
“The electricity provides the tissue with a source of energy so cells can function that much better;” Vargas says.
“When cells are healthy, nutrients and water can be processed correctly, and waste and CO2 are removed properly.”
Most see results immediately but according to Barton Schwartz, it is difficult to tell how long they last.
Product VS Treatment:
Which is more effective?
Professionally administered treatments can probably produce temporarily tighter and more lifted skin. ” The at-home line sounds interesting but there’s not a whole lot of evidence to support the claims,” says Vargas.
