Microcurrent therapy – modern hardware procedure for skin rejuvenation. The effect is achieved by increasing the functional activity of facial muscles and improving the performance of all structural elements of the skin due to the impact on it with high-impulse electric current with low voltage. Current activates restoration of soft tissues and helps to increase the elasticity of dermis from the inside. Exposure of electric current activates a number of intracellular biochemical processes: accelerates metabolism and blood flow, increases tone and elasticity of blood vessels, optimizes the functioning of fibroblasts and initiates a process of creating young cell elements. Visually, we see a lifting effect, a reduction in wrinkles, an increase in skin turgor, its elasticity and colour enhancement.
