The jolt you need to spark your skin’s glow!
Imagine beauty treatments that go beyond the conventional, harnessing the power of electric currents to zap, shock and energise your skin for that EXTRA ohm needed! Enter the electrifying world of electrical facial treatments. This isn’t science-fiction, but a reality that sparks a shocking revolution in the beauty realm.
Now, if you’re picturing your skin getting electrocuted, nah that’s not how it works. In this blog, we’ll delve into two (perfectly safe) electrical beauty treatments that are sparking a debate. Charge right into the circuit discussion of these two breakers as we unlock the power and forces of each treatment. So, “watt” are you waiting for?
First up: Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
Generating much popularity, EMS has various forms of applications, including fitness training, physical therapy, and cosmetic treatments.
It’s a form of electrotherapy that utilises higher-voltage electrical currents to stimulate muscles and cause them to contract, simulating the effects of exercise or physical activity.
How is it executed?
It works by applying electrical currents to the nerves that innervate specific muscles, causing those muscles to involuntarily contract and expand as if they’re exercising.
It has the capacity to tone and lift muscles, transforming the skin with an “ampere” amount of firmness. In the context of fitness, EMS devices are sometimes used as a substitute for traditional exercise routines to enhance muscle strength and endurance.
Next in-line: Microcurrent
Otherwise known as microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation (MENS), it’s a form of electrotherapy that utilises lower-voltage electrical currents to stimulate the skin at the cellular level for rapid regeneration.
How is it executed?
Did you know that our cells are able to conduct electrical currents and electricity is required for the nervous system to send signals throughout the body and to the brain, making it possible for us to move, think and feel?
Microcurrent treatments are adapted to mimic the body’s own natural bio-electrical currents and are applied at a much lower intensity than other forms of electrical stimulation. It’s used to stimulate skin cells to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture by promoting collagen production.
Sparking the debate: EMS v.s. Microcurrent
If you’re experiencing minimal signs or early stages of ageing, microcurrent treatment is designed to supercharge ATP (adenosine triphosphate) cells, accelerating your skin’s cellular regeneration. It primarily targets facial rejuvenation, aiming to enhance skin texture and soften surface wrinkles.
On the other hand, if you’re dealing with more severe signs or later stages of ageing, such as laxity and loss of elasticity, EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) will come to the rescue. It works to lift your facial contours, addressing concerns like sagginess, double chin, as well as the loss of skin density and muscle definition.
Both treatments have their merits, but when it comes to comparing the depth, strength and intensity, there’s no doubt that EMS stands a notch higher on the pedestal to provide deeper, more structural and longer-lasting results.
Want to give ageing a run for its money?
For daily use – Pick ést.lab’s VitaLift A+ SmartSculpt Buddy
Wired for beauty, meet ést.lab’s VitaLift A+ SmartSculpt Buddy which uses EMS to tone and strengthen muscles, helping you achieve a sculpted and taut complexion that is smoother and firmer with sustained usage. Elevated with Sonic Vibrations, it effectively boosts blood circulation, promotes skin detoxification, and eliminates puffiness and fluid retention.
Take your pick from 3 custom modes of EMS + Sonic Vibrations, EMS only and Sonic Vibrations only with 6 adjustable intensities for each mode. It’s versatile enough to use on small areas such as the jawline and neck, as well as larger areas such as the waist, thighs and glutes.
For visible lifting, sculpting, firming and toning results, it’s best paired with the VitaLift A+ SmartSculpt Booster which goes beyond its role as a conductor for electrical currents with all goodies it contains: Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract for firmness and smoothness, Intensyl Px for immediate lifting, Haematococcus Pluvialis Extract for improved skin elasticity and reduced stretch marks, and Caffeine for skin tightening and reduced puffiness. 5 to 10 minutes is all it takes per session for a robust workout session.
For professional treatment – Pick Estetica’s RF+EMS Dual Power Lift
This is facial rejuvenation 2.0. At your next visit to Estetica, you may give our RF+ EMS Dual Power Lift a go. It uses EMS to stimulate nerve endings and cause muscles to contract, which helps to tone facial muscles and tighten facial contours for that natural facelift effect. The skin tightening effect is intensified with Radio Frequency (RF) to produce heat energy to create a controlled micro-injury, which speeds up the cell turnover process for skin repair, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin.
If you want to witness a significant skin transformation, a minimum of 6 sessions with a frequency of 2-3 sessions every 1-2 weeks is recommended. Thereafter, the treatment frequency can be reduced to once every 3-4 weeks for maintenance.
Thank you for enduring this high-voltage dialogue. If you haven’t given any of the above treatments a shot, it’s time to supercharge your skin with these electrifying experiences and become a stunning shocker!
In good hands,
