What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Micro-Current Therapy (MCT) is the application of very low levels of electrical stimulation to the muscles, ligaments, and joints to provide pain relief and promote tissue healing.
How Does Microcurrent Therapy Differ From Other Frequencies?
Micro-Current is the only electrical therapy whose currents can penetrate the cells. Unlike other frequencies, such as TENS that use milliamps, Micro-Current uses microamps, which are a thousand times smaller—hence the term “Micro-Current”.
This tiny current is naturally found in the body, however damaged cells reject it because they are swollen. As a result, the supply of blood, nutrients and oxygen to these injured and inflamed cells are blocked.
Micro-Current reintroduces this current and restores the function in the damaged cells. By penetrating the cells, MC re-establishes normal cell activity, neutralizes the oscillating absorption of nutrients, and increases the elimination of cellular waste.
Other Uses For
While MCT is mainly used to repair injuries and treat pain, it can also be used to tone facial muscles.
MCT Facials have become increasingly popular over the years. Many spas and clinics use this low-level electrotherapy treatment to strengthen and retrain the facial muscles of their patients.
If you purchase one of our units that have the Micro-Current feature and would like to use it for the face, we recommend that you purchase the Tone-A-Matic Facial Toner Pads.
