Microcurrent Facial: Harnessing Technology for Radiant and Toned Skin

Microcurrent Facial: Harnessing Technology for Radiant and Toned Skin

Everyone is getting them-from your favorite influencers to Hollywood actors and actresses to your work besties. Microcurrent facials aren’t just a trend, they’re the latest way to use existing technology to care for your skin and minimize the look of visible signs of aging. 

Here’s the inside scoop on what microcurrent is, what to expect at a microcurrent facial, and how you can add a microcurrent facial treatment to your own daily skincare routine. 

What Is Microcurrent?

First things first: this isn’t a brand new technology. 

Microcurrent technology has long been used in spas far and wide to help clients achieve the skin of their dreams — and now you can get the benefits of microcurrent treatment for aging skin in the comfort of your own home. 

Microcurrent therapy works by sending low-level currents that mimic the body’s own natural currents into the skin and facial muscles. These currents are considered “sub-sensory,” which means most people won’t even feel them. 

While you’re relaxing during your microcurrent facial, the power of the currents is hard at work:

  • Exercising facial muscles. Just like the muscles on your body, the muscles of the face need movement too. With microcurrents, the smooth muscle is stimulated to help tone, train, and support the facial skin and fascia. 

Microcurrent helps tighten and tone loose skin, add contour and structure to the face, and banish the existence of lines and wrinkles that make skin look older. 

Understanding Aging Skin

Let’s chat about aging skin. As our skin ages, it sags, develops fine lines and wrinkles, loses its resilience, and may even develop dark spots and uneven texture and tone. Some of this is due to collagen loss, and some of it is due to the muscles that support the facial skin and give it structure. 

Skin thinning and sagging starts as early as age 30, so supporting the skin with preventive and rejuvenating techniques can help address these major skin concerns at any age. 

What Is a Microcurrent Facial?

If you decide to go to an aesthetician for a microcurrent facial, you can expect it to take about an hour. The microcurrent machines used professionally are able to produce slightly higher microcurrents, but you’ll still need repeated treatments for the best results. 

The Procedure 

Before you begin, your service provider will cleanse your skin thoroughly to remove dirt and oil. If you have any specific skin type concerns to address, like extractions or dryness, you may have an additional treatment prior to microcurrent treatment. 

Once your skin is cleansed, your provider will apply a conductive serum to your skin to ensure proper microcurrent conduction. Next, using dual wands, they’ll glide the microcurrent wands over your skin. You shouldn’t feel anything, even if you are incredibly sensitive. 


There’s no specific aftercare routine you’ll need to follow after a microcurrent facial unless your treatment advisor has instructed you to do so. If you have extremely sensitive skin, you may experience redness from the products the provider used, but the treatment itself has virtually no side effects. 

When Will You See Results?

There are two ways to get the results: professional facials or at-home microcurrent facial toning devices. 

Many have reported seeing immediate improvement in skin tone, texture, and puffiness. You’ll notice more results by the third day after a professional microcurrent facial massage or by the third day of using an at-home device. 

Users generally report seeing a timeline of three to six weeks of use for noticeably tighter, plumper skin that is lifted and toned. People who use My Derma Dream’s system report noticeably lifted, toned, and rejuvenated skin after only one use, with major visible differences after several weeks.  

Are Professional Microcurrent Facials Worth It?

The fact is, you need multiple professional treatments to achieve your dream results… and those costs can add up. Some spend thousands of dollars on spa facials each month. 

For an hour of your time and a nice chunk of change, you can get a non-invasive facelift with zero downtime, but savvy people know you can get the same results right at home with My Derma Dream’s MicroSculpt System.

What Are At-Home Microcurrent Treatments?

You can have your cake and eat it too with My Derma Dream’s MicroSculpt system. 

Developed to help you break free from the lies you’ve been sold by the beauty industry, My Derma Dream’s products support all skin types, at all ages, so you can love the skin you’re in. 

How It Works

The My Derma Dream MicroSculpt device delivers microcurrents to your skin and facial muscles to fade those fine lines and wrinkles, smooth and brighten skin tone, and give your skin lift and contour without fillers or invasive facial procedures

How To MicroSculpt Your Face

Using My Derma Dream’s MicroSculpt System is easy and fits conveniently into your existing skincare routine — here’s your closer look at the steps. 


Before starting, make sure to cleanse your skin thoroughly to remove surface dirt, oil, and makeup. It’s important to make sure you use an oil-free cleanser, as oil can interfere with microcurrent conduction.

Pat skin dry with a towel, and don’t apply moisturizers or lotions to the skin.  

Apply Activator Serum

My Derma Dream has activator serums that works perfectly for your skin’s specific needs. The serums help activate your MicroSculpt device while giving you additional benefits like brightness, even-looking tone, hydration, and firmness:

  • Niacinamide Serum. This serum works great for HYDRATING dry skin while also activating your MicroSculpt device. It contains BRIGHTENING vitamin B3 (niacinamide) to help support a smoother, more even-looking skin tone. 
  • Shine Bright Serum. For BRIGHT, FIRM, EVEN-LOOKING skin, Shine Bright Serum is the solution. This serum activates your MicroSculpt device while also using vitamin C for radiance. 

Apply a small amount of activator serum to the area you will be sculpting. Don’t apply activator serum to your entire face, because it could dry before you work on that particular spot. You want the activator serum to stay damp while you’re using your MicroSculpt tool.


Next, power your device on and glide it over your skin in long, upward strokes. Think of it like giving yourself a facial massage. Use the power setting that is most comfortable for you. You can use your device over your entire face and neck area. 

Finish Up

Once completed, you can massage in the remainder of your serum and follow up with your eye creams, moisturizer, and sunscreen. There’s zero downtime with My Derma Dream MicroSculpting, so it’s back to business as usual when you’ve completed it. 

In just under 10 minutes, you’ve given yourself a mini-facelift with ZERO pain — and for about the cost of a new pair of sneakers.
