Electrical Muscle-Stimulating Facial

Running a low-level electrical current through the facial muscles, as happens during treatments such as CACI and the Face Gym’s Signature Electrical facial, encourages these muscles to contract and tighten. Improving the muscle tone in the skin lifts the contours of the face and improves circulation in the skin, too. The latest versions of these treatments – such as the CACI Synergy, offer LED light therapy alongside the microcurrent treatment.

How does it work:

In order to get the electrical currents running through the relevant facial muscles, the therapist will either use two prongs that pass the current between them, or a device with a two-pronged treatment head. As the current runs through the skin, it contracts the muscle and this enhances blood flow too, particularly in the tiny capillaries within the skin.

Minimal; just a strange feeling of electrical tingling

Anaesthetic:

None

Results:

Glowing skin and lifted facial contours

None

Things to bear in mind:

As ever with facials, you will need to do a course in order to see the best results.
