Micro-current facelift without going under the knife

This facial treatment is said to be better than botox; it’s a painless way of taking your face to the gym. Micro-Current uses low-voltage electricity to promote cell growth in the skin, stimulate muscle and collage development in the dermis on the face. It is a painless, noninvasive, and injection-free treatment with immediate benefits and no recovery time.

Who can get a Micro-current facelift?

Every skin type can get a micro-current procedure because they are minimally invasive. However, pregnant and nursing mothers should avoid this procedure because it hasn’t been clinically tested or used on pregnant or nursing mothers. Also, people who have had certain facelifts like neurotoxin or Botox may not benefit from a micro-current facelift since their muscles are frozen.

Preparing for a treatment

If you are new to microcurrent facial treatment, your esthetician will help work out a treatment plan for your skin, depending on how long-lasting you want your results. It takes more than a single session to get a long-lasting result. So, you have to do them consistently to see added benefits and long-lasting results. If you are in San Diego and looking to get a micro-current done, you should consider visiting SkinBar by Jane. The estheticians there will leave your skin clean, soothe, extract, and hydrated so that you leave the studio glowing.

Gua sha

Gua sha is an ancient Chinese healing therapy technique involving scraping your skin with short or long strokes to improve circulation. It is a natural alternative therapy that approaches health issues like chronic pain. Practitioners of this technique believe that rubbing the skin’s surface breaks up the stagnant energy in the body, reduces inflammation, and promotes healing. This therapy can be performed on a person’s back, buttocks, arms, necks, and legs. A gentler version of Gua sha is performed on the face to relieve tension in the facial muscle, encourage lymphatic drainage, and boost circulation. Gua sha breaks the connective tissue (fascia) that hugs the muscles, creating a more tightened and contoured face. It also brightens your complexion, prevents saggy skin, heals scarring, dark circles, and rosacea. And, when frequently repeated, it can have long-lasting results.

Home Vs. Professional help

Of course, they are ‘how-to’ videos and articles out there that explain how you can do the Gua sha therapy yourself, but it’s best to leave things to the experts. If you perform the treatment yourself, it may lead to bursting capillaries and bruising your face. So, you should trust your esthetician to perform the treatment to avoid redness and bruises. The end results of this massage are visible, and it might be the best massage of your life. SkinBar By Jane studio estheticians will walk you through the process before carrying out the massage. Your skin will feel tighter and smoother immediately after your session.

Facial exercise

Do facial exercises actually work? Celebrities like Cristiano Ronaldo endorsed facial workouts in 2014; countless websites, books, and videos have suggested that facial exercises effectively reduce wrinkles and slimming checks. Here’s what Jane Terry Brown, the Esthetician and Owner at SkinBar By Jane in San Diego, thinks.

She recommends that facial exercises should be done every day. When we make expressions, we exercise our face, and certain people overuse certain muscles, making them weak. So you should do facial exercises to rejuvenate and lift every weak muscle. Here are simple anti-ageing facial exercises you can do at home.

1. Cheek lifter

Open your mouth to form an O, pull your upper lip over your top teeth and smile to lift your cheek muscles. Place your fingers on the top part of your cheek, lower the muscles by releasing them, and lift them back up, repeating this process several times.

2. Eyebrow lifter

Smile, and force your eyes open by putting three fingertips of each hand under your eyebrows. Try to frown while at that position, then close your eyelids and roll your eyeballs up. Be in this position for 20 seconds, then relax. The theory behind getting visible results is by doing a warmup, then cardio for detoxifying and draining, and finally sculpting, tightening, and toning the muscles. If you need more intensive training, you should seek the help of a professional. The estheticians at Skinbar by Jane are skilled at doing the perfect deep tissue massage and muscle manipulation techniques.
