What is an electrical muscle stimulating facial?
An electrical muscle stimulating facial uses a low-level electrical current to make the muscles in your face tighten and contract. This can help the face to look firmer and younger and reduces any sagging that has occurred as the muscles in the face begin to stretch with age. This also means that the skin will become smoother, helping to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Who is an ideal candidate for an electrical muscle stimulating facial?
Electrical muscle stimulating facials are best suited to those who feel that areas of their face are starting to sag with age. It can help restore volume in areas that may be starting to appear hollow and restores tone to lift the face back to where it used to be! As the results only last for a matter of days, this can be a good option in the run up to a special occasion, such as a wedding, although a course of treatments can help to prolong the effects.
How do electrical muscle stimulating facials work?
During the treatment, two metal prongs are applied to the face. These pass a low-level electrical current which can not only help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastic, but also increase blood flow. It also sends currents through the muscles, forcing them to contract – it has been likened to giving them a gym workout – and therefore helps to firm and tighten them.
