Microcurrent Body Sculpting

Trending Treatment

Microcurrent body sculpting has recently been capturing the industry by storm. Client bases everywhere are enticed by the idea of trimming the waistline, reducing cellulite, and tightening sagging skin without going into a gym. We all remember the ab belt craze of the early 2000s. Well, here it is backed by science and with newer technology and applications. All the antiquated ab belts are saying, “New look. Who’s this?”.

WHAT IS MICROCURRENT?

Early on in our careers, most of us are taught about microcurrent facials and its rejuvenating effects, but this is a little deeper and different current. Microcurrent is a low-level electrical current that mimics the body’s charge. Once it reaches the dermal and muscular layers, it activates the release of ATP as a catalyst for cellular functions. ATP is the charge in our battery, and as we age, it diminishes. Increased ATP levels support cell metabolism, stimulate protein synthesis (remember collagen is a protein), and increase circulation and detoxification through the lymphatic system. In body contouring, it does all of this and re-educates muscle groups regarding muscle fiber strength, length, and position.
