Microcurrent Treatment Products
Microcurrent conductive gels are gels that are used in microcurrent therapy, a type of medical treatment that uses low-level electrical current to stimulate the muscles and improve the appearance of the skin. Microcurrent therapy is often used to improve the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles, and it can also be used to enhance the absorption of skincare products.
Microcurrent conductive gels are applied to the skin before the treatment. They help to create a good electrical contact between the skin and the microcurrent device, which is necessary for the effective transmission of the electrical current. Without the gel, the electrical current may be absorbed or scattered by the skin, leading to reduced effectiveness of the treatment.
Microcurrent conductive gels are typically water-based and non-greasy. They are easy to clean off the skin and are available in various sizes. It is important to use a high-quality microcurrent conductive gel to ensure the best possible results in microcurrent therapy.
What Is Conductive Gel?
Conductive gel is a water-based gel, chemically neutral and electrically conductive. This type of gel is widely used for facial procedures like ultrasound, electrotherapy, microcurrent, radiofrequency and ultrasonic devices.
When it comes to microcurrent machines, they are designed to produce a low frequency pulsating currents of electricity and gel needed to conduct current.
Why Should You Use Conductive Gel?
√ It helps to transmit the electric current from the equipment to the muscles, without the gel this treatment won’t be effective, since the electric currents will not be able to reach the necessary depth.
√ Conductive gel protects the skin from micro electric shock, and enables the device to glide smoothly. In fact, it is recommended to apply a generous amount of microcurrent gel to ensure good conductivity and an adequate skin protection.
√ Additionally, some microcurrent conductivity gels are infused with anti-aging ingredients and act as both, conductive medium and anti aging treatment. Usually these microcurrent gels are leave-on, so you don’t have to wash them off after the procedure, and they are also more expensive.
Using microcurrent gel provides the following benefits:
- Enables microcurrent to penetrate into the muscles
- Increases product absorption
- Nourishes skin with anti-aging ingredients
- Protects skin from zapping
- Allows the equipment to glide easily
Microcurrent Conductive Gel
Gels for microcurrent conduction are usually water-based, clear solutions that allow conduction of electricity while being chemically neutral. It is widely used for medical procedures like ultrasound, electrotherapy, and with radiofrequency devices.
When using microcurrent devices that produce low-frequency electric currents for skin rejuvenation, a medium is needed to allow transmission of these currents from the tools being used and into the skin. Normally, the skin resists electric currents, and zapping (electric shock) can happen. This affects the effectiveness of the treatment. Microcurrent conductive gels help convert the electric currents from these microcurrent devices into the body’s natural current, which then releases energy into the muscles and skin tissues, providing the lifting and toning effects needed.
Some of the conductive gels available in the market are infused with other ingredients that also get into the skin, such as anti-aging, hydrating, and moisturizing actives.
An ideal and appropriate microcurrent gel should be water-based, transparent/clear, hypoallergic, oil-free, and have nourishing active ingredients.
Microcurrent Conductive Gel Protocol
The protocol for using microcurrent conductive gel in microcurrent therapy typically includes the following steps:
Cleanse the skin: Begin by cleansing the skin to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup. This helps to ensure that the conductive gel will adhere properly to the skin and improve the transmission of the electrical current.
Apply the conductive gel: Squeeze a small amount of the conductive gel onto your finger and apply it to the area of the skin where the microcurrent device will be used. Spread the gel evenly over the skin, making sure to cover the entire area.
Place the electrodes: Attach the electrodes of the microcurrent device to the skin, making sure to press them firmly against the skin to ensure good contact.
Turn on the device: Turn on the microcurrent device and follow the manufacturer's instructions for use. Typically, the device will be moved in a circular or back-and-forth motion over the treated area.
Remove the conductive gel: When the treatment is finished, remove the electrodes and use a clean, damp cloth to wipe off the conductive gel. Rinse the skin with water and pat dry.
