Mastering Facial Contouring: Enhance Your Natural Features with Expert Techniques

Mastering Facial Contouring: Enhance Your Natural Features with Expert Techniques

The natural look of youth is more than just radiance and a bright, fresh-faced complexion. It’s a sculpted, contoured look that comes naturally when cheeks are pumped full of collagen and skin snaps easily back into place with childlike elasticity. 

Unfortunately, time changes the skin, and with those changes comes a loss of youthfulness. Trying to recapture the look is a challenge, and one of the reasons why “facial contouring” is so popular. 

If you’ve never heard of facial contouring, that’s okay — here is everything you need to know.

What Is Facial Contouring? 

Facial contouring is a way to sculpt and tighten different areas of the face to help it look more structured and less saggy. It helps create the appearance of depth and makes the skin look naturally younger. 

The need for facial contouring can happen before age 30. Even 20-year-olds are addicted to creating a more luminous, sculpted look which can make you wonder why you need facial sculpting at all and how My Derma Dream fits into the picture. 

What Are the Root Causes of Facial Sagging and How Can You Address It?

The biggest reason people turn to facial contouring techniques is due to sagging skin. Over time, collagen production in the skin begins to decline, leaving hollows under the eyes and making the skin appear thinner. 

Likewise, elastin production slows, which means your skin doesn’t easily snap back into place like it once did. Those reasons are commonly known, but another major reason why skin loses its tightness is due to facial muscles. Facial muscles also begin to lose tone, leading to an inability to support our skin. 

Facial muscles don’t get as much press as collagen and elastin, but think about it like this: You work out to keep the muscles in your body toned and tight. When you stop working out, the muscles atrophy, getting smaller and creating sagging skin. The same thing happens to your face.

Facial muscles lose their tone, but doing hours of facial yoga is probably not a viable solution for facial contouring (unless you just have a lot of time on your hands). Instead, you need a better method. 

What Are the Best Methods of Facial Contouring (and Are They Actually Worth It)?

There are several methods of achieving facial contouring, and they range from highly invasive surgeries to minimally invasive procedures you can do at home.

Surgery and Procedures

Plastic surgery uses procedures to stretch the skin over the bones to give a more contoured look. If surgery isn’t your bag, you might be tempted to get facial injections that plump and fill out the face and lift sagging skin. 

The problem with all of these techniques is that they are:

  • Highly invasive
  • Painful 
  • Require recovery time
  • Cost a small fortune
  • Can distort your face

That’s right. Getting these types of procedures can eventually lead to a distorted look and damaged skin-the exact opposite of what you want. When surgery and injections are out of the question, you might turn to the use of heavy makeup. 


You’ve watched all the tutorials and followed the best influencers, but you still can’t get your contour quite right. Understandable. 

It takes copious amounts of foundation, concealer, and highlighter to effectively make aging skin look younger, and once that makeup comes off, reality sets in. 

Most people want a more permanent solution for contouring than simply painting lines on their faces that wash off with water.  But if you don’t want to use contouring makeup and have eliminated dangerous surgeries and injections as options, you could be left struggling to find a solution — and that’s where microcurrent comes into play. 


Microcurrent technology uses currents that mimic the body’s own natural currents to help stimulate skin and activate muscles to tone and sculpt. Unlike surgery or makeup, it focuses on those often overlooked facial muscles to stimulate, tone, tighten, and lift the skin by targeting the muscles first

Unlike injections or surgeries, it’s completely painless. In fact, the currents are considered sub-sensory, which means you might not even feel it. 

Microcurrent has been used for medical purposes since the 1980s for various muscle-related conditions, so this technology is well-researched, trusted, and safe. The best part? You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to get the results you want. 

How To MicroSculpt Your Face

MicroSculpt works by delivering low-level currents into your skin and through to your muscle. The MicroSculpt™ Facial Toning and Skin Tightening Device is designed to safely contour, lift, and rejuvenate your skin by supporting skin cells, working out those untoned facial muscles, and giving your face the workout it needs.

Using it is easy. You can add My Derma Dream’s MicroSculpt device to your skincare routine and spend as little as five minutes per day sculpting and contouring your skin. 

Using My Derma Dream’s MicroSculpt Device

The first step is to grab your favorite activator serum and your device. Cleanse your skin with an oil free cleanser. Make sure your skin is completely clean and free from facial oil or oil from products. Oil can interfere with microcurrent conduction. 

Activator Serums

To help ensure the highest level of microcurrent conduction, you need an activator serum. My Derma Dream’s activator serums are packed with ingredients to help make sure that microcurrent goes deep into your skin continuously. 

They also come loaded with skin-loving ingredients to help with skin’s tone, texture, radiance, and appearance. 

  • Shine Bright Serum. Get ready for BRIGHT, FIRM, EVEN-LOOKING skin at any age. This serum works to activate your MicroSculpt device while bringing you the bonus benefits of vitamin C, a natural antioxidant that helps brighten the skin, fade dark spots, and minimize the effects of sun damage. 
  • Niacinamide Serum. My Derma Dream’s solution for dealing with blemish-prone skin (at any age) is the Niacinamide Serum. This HYDRATING serum helps activate the MicroSculpt System while also delivering niacinamide for nourished skin and less visible pores. 

Over time, this serum helps easily blur the look of fine lines and wrinkles and creates a more even-looking skin tone. 

When using an activator serum, be sure to only apply a small amount to the area you plan to treat. Work in sections to make sure your activator serum doesn’t dry on your skin. 


Using your device, power up and begin gilding the microcurrents over your skin in an upward motion. Think of it like lifting your skin upward and outward. You can use your microcurrent device on your entire face and neck area. Using it daily will give you the best results. 

Finish Up

Once you’ve completed your treatment, it’s time to load up on even more benefits from My Derma Dream’s products. Now, you can harness the power of “Botox in a Bottle,” with My Derma Dream’s Timeless Skin Serum

This revolutionary serum features five golden standard ingredients that:

  • Noticeably minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Support skin’s firmness and bounce
  • Brighten and tighten the look of your complexion

If you were looking for the miracle serum, you just found it. Maybe everyone will think you had injections. When asked for your plastic surgeon’s name, give them My Derma Dream. 


After treating your skin and loading up on anti-aging serums, be sure to moisturize and apply sunscreen, preferably SPF 30 or higher, to prevent sun damage and make sure you don’t damage your skin.
