Microcurrent Facials in Miami
The Ultimate Guide to Microcurrent Facials in Miami
At Med Aesthetics Miami, long before the recent surge in popularity of microcurrent facial treatments, microcurrent has been an integral part of the gamut of skincare services that we offer. Med Aesthetics Miami has been perfecting its microcurrent treatments for over a decade. That is because it is aligned with our philosophy of beauty from the inside out. Microcurrent is indeed an innovative aesthetic procedure, first adopted as a cosmetic treatment in the ’90s. This non-surgical, natural, and budget-friendly procedure synchronizes with the body to minimize and erase fine lines and wrinkles. It boosts circulation and oxygenation and results in lymphatic drainage to purify and clean the skin. In addition, it provides an instant facelift by acting on the muscles. Microcurrent is based on the principles of Acupuncture.
What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and natural procedure that tones and lifts sagging skin on the face, neck, and body. It works by stimulating the muscles as needed, restoring your skin’s youthful appearance. It is equivalent to a face gym.
The treatment imitates the electrical signals of the muscles (hence the term ‘microcurrent’), enhancing circulation and skin oxygenation, stimulating collagen production, tightening and lifting the skin, and more. It’s one of the few aesthetic treatments that directly stimulate the muscles, much like a gym workout, but for your skin. The result? A lifting and tightening effect that many prefer due to its alignment with nature’s intention, not relying on artificial ingredients.
How Do Microcurrent Facials Work?
Facial microcurrent therapy utilizes our body’s natural electrical currents to rejuvenate skin tissues. The microcurrent device is gently massaged on the skin’s surface to stimulate muscles that require toning. As the device emits electric impulses, our body harmonizes with these impulses to relax the muscles and restore their lost strength.
A session typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour – a quick and effective procedure. Initially, at least ten treatments are recommended, followed by regular monthly maintenance sessions.
Where Can Microcurrent Therapy Be Used?
Microcurrent therapy isn’t just for your face. It can be used on other body areas that require muscle toning and sculpting. While the face and neck are the most common requests, the treatment can also target:
- Legs and thighs
- Specific areas (spot treatment)
- Cellulite reduction
- Body sculpting and muscle toning
- Treatment of calloused elbows and knees
What Are the Benefits of Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent therapy offers numerous benefits, including:
- Improved muscle tone
- Lifted eyebrows
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Enhanced blood circulation
- Strengthened penetration of products to treat other skin problems
- Sculpted legs, thighs, buttocks, stomach, and more
- Reduced cellulite, and acne
Is Microcurrent Therapy Safe and Effective?
Microcurrent technology is FDA-cleared and has been widely used in the US for over 40 years without a single safety incident. Research has also shown it to be relatively safe. It is recommended to wait 72 hours between treatments, but regardless no adverse side effects have been reported. There are a few contraindications, including those who suffer from migraines or with a pacemaker. Following a microcurrent treatment, you can expect significant improvements such as diminished fine lines, creases, and wrinkles; revitalized, smoother, and softer skin; improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, and many more.
Post-treatment, it’s advised to drink at least 8 ounces of water to help flush out toxins stimulated by the treatment. It’s also recommended to avoid washing your face for 2-6 hours after the treatment, as the support cream continues to stimulate your skin.
Microcurrent facial treatments in Miami offer a safe, effective, and non-surgical alternative for those seeking a rejuvenated appearance. The process is painless and relaxing, with many clients describing the experience as invigorating and euphoric.
How Long Does a Microcurrent Facial Last?
Microcurrent facials can be considered similar to a skin gym, which requires discipline and consistency. Results can vary based on the individual’s skin condition, age, and lifestyle. Initially, ten sessions either weekly or twice a week are recommended, to be followed by regular monthly maintenance treatments to preserve and enhance the results. However, it’s very important to talk about this with your aesthetician or skin care professional, as the frequency of treatments may need to be tailored to your specific skincare needs and goals.
How Much Does a Microcurrent Facial Cost in Miami?
A single microcurrent facial treatment in Med Aesthetics Miami costs $135 per session. We also offer packages at discounted prices.
Microcurrent vs. Botox
Comparisons between microcurrent and Botox arise due to their similar targets – the muscles. However, they work oppositely. Botox, a neuromodulator, blocks the signals to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. On the other hand, microcurrent therapy stimulates the muscles, promoting contraction and relaxation to tone and lift the skin.
While both treatments can effectively combat the signs of aging, their methods, and results differ. Botox results in a ‘frozen’ look as it paralyzes the muscles to smooth wrinkles. In contrast, microcurrent therapy promotes natural-looking results by working with the body’s own electrical currents to rejuvenate the skin and muscles.
Why Choose Microcurrent Facials at Med Aesthetics Miami?

This treatment uses your body’s own biological processes to enhance your look, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a more natural approach to skincare and anti-aging.

However, as with any treatment, it’s crucial to consult with a professional to ensure that it’s the right choice for you.
