It’s one of the newer crazes in home beauty: using microcurrents to stimulate facial muscles so that they tighten and smooth your face, resulting in fewer wrinkles, a more defined chin, and an overall youthful appearance, but do they really work?
Some of the signs of aging are definitely related to lax muscles in the face. Some of the sagging in your chin and neck, especially, is related to slack muscles that the toner can work to improve. Using the microcurrent daily can help your facial muscles tighten up, reducing slackness of muscles in the chin and neck.
But don’t expect the kind of results you would see with a surgical facelift or even with many nonsurgical procedures because there are many aspects to facial aging that facial toners just can’t address.
One of the big problems in facial aging is that many of your facial muscles are already too toned. In fact, they need to chill out. They’ve gotten so good at doing their job that they can do it now without you even asking–and that’s not a good thing. That little crinkle at the corner of your eyes may look great as part of a smile, but when it’s by itself, well, we have a name for it: crow’s feet.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic helps relax those overactive muscles and smooth your face.
Some of the sagging in your face occurs because your face has lost volume. With less volume but the same amount of skin, that skin is going to hang down more. Restoring lost volume in the face can reduce the amount of sagging you see in the chin and neck.
Your muscles aren’t the only support structure in your face. Your skin plays a vital role in supporting itself and other facial tissues, and as we age our skin changes. It produces less of the vital structural compounds collagen and elastin.
Skin care treatments like facials can help your skin remain healthy so that they produce more of these compounds. Not only will this help keep your skin from sagging, it can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
