At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, with four convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, and led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, we believe that a combination of our amazing in-office treatments and exceptional at-home care is the key to achieving the remarkable results our patient’s desire, and the NuFACE® lifting and toning system allows us to do just that. This handheld device uses microcurrent technology to naturally lift and tone the facial muscles and skin. With NuFACE®, patients can take the reins of their anti-aging regimen and enjoy prolonged results from their in-office treatments and continuous skin improvements over time.
What is NuFACE®?
NuFACE® is a clinically tested handheld device that uses microcurrent technology to deliver a non-invasive, mini-lift to aging skin. The treatment is ideal for improving facial contours and skin tone and reducing lines and wrinkles across the jawline, cheeks and forehead. The NuFACE® device is the perfect anti-aging solution for patients who want to experience dramatic results in a short period of time without going under the knife.
For optimal results, patients should follow the NuFACE® microcurrent regimen five days a week for a minimum of 60 days. Patients can reduce their treatment schedule to three days a week once they’ve completed the recommended 60-day regimen.
What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is a noninvasive therapy that delivers a small electrical impulse, similar to the body’s natural electrical impulses, to tighten and tone the facial muscles and skin. Dubbed the “5-minute facial,” patients can expect immediate and cumulative results as the electrical current triggers biochemical responses that gradually and continuously rejuvenates the skin.
The sub-sensory nature of microcurrent technology makes the therapy suitable for all skin types, with most patients feeling nothing or at most a soothing sensation during treatment.
Why is Microcurrent Important?
Microcurrent has truly revolutionized the anti-aging industry. At one time, this technology was exclusive to spas and medical facilities, but innovations such as the NuFACE® system have made microcurrent facial devices available for home treatment.
Mirroring the body’s natural bio-electrical currents, microcurrent uses a low-level electrical impulse to trigger and speed up the cellular regenerative process. Microcurrent therapy can instantly tone, contour, and firm the facial skin without surgery or downtime and provide continuous improvements on a cellular level.
Microcurrent therapy is quick and painless, and most microcurrent devices are ultra-portable and discreet enough to use at home, in the office, in the car or wherever you travel.
How Does Microcurrent Tone the Face?
Microcurrent sends gentle pulses of electrical current through the skin to stimulate the facial muscles. The treatment also acts as a stimulus, triggering the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules. Increased levels of ATP drives the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers and key anti-aging proteins.
A higher distribution of ATP molecules also causes increased contraction of the facial muscles. ATP lifts and contours the facial skin indirectly by contracting and toning the underlying facial muscles, similar to how a resistance workout shapes and tones the body.
