How does Microcurrent Work?
Microcurrent works by sending tiny electrical impulses through the muscles. These impulses mimic the natural electricity in your body and cause no harm. It can be used in one of two ways: to relax muscles or to tighten muscles. Microcurrent always uses a pair of electrodes (one negative and one positive) to keep currents localized and circuits closed for optimal results.
As the muscles are "worked out", protein and ATP production increases, energizing muscles and creates a more lifted, toned look as a result. This increase in ATP also triggers the production of elastin and collagen which assists in skin repair as well.
