Microcurrent therapy is a cutting-edge, non-invasive technology that has been gaining traction in the health and wellness industry, particularly within the realm of chiropractic care. At the Chicago Chiropractic Center, we’ve embraced this innovative approach, recognizing its potential to enhance patient outcomes and contribute to a holistic approach to health and wellness.

Microcurrent technology delivers low-level electrical currents, specifically up to 1000µ (microamps), which have been shown to stimulate collagen and elastin production, as well as ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production in the body. This therapy is utilized for a wide range of applications, including muscle lifting and toning, skin firming, acne treatment, pigmentation reduction, scar treatment, and post-operative healing .

The therapy works by systematically reducing the signs of aging through three primary mechanisms:

  • Circulation: By increasing blood flow, microcurrent provides muscles with the nutrients they need to maintain tone and health. This process enhances the function, color, and overall health of the skin positively .
  • Muscle Re-education via a Cerebral Effect: Microcurrent therapy mimics the body’s own electrical impulses, stimulating the brain to initiate more neural impulses. This “reminds” the brain to initiate more impulses, leading to re-educated, freshly toned muscle memory. This process is particularly effective in rebuilding facial structure from the inside, offering a non-invasive “lift” .
  • Hydration and Increased Cellular Function: In addition to muscle stimulation, microcurrent therapy also includes a second type of current used to hydrate the skin. This method, known as “iontophoresis,” allows for deep hydration of the skin, increased circulation, lymphatic drainage, and stimulation of collagen and elastin production. This process enhances healing and hydration of the skin, leading to a cumulative tissue repair effect .

Microcurrent therapy has been proven to be effective in various applications, including facial rejuvenation and youth preservation. It restores youthful skin tone without the need for surgery, downtime, or injections, revitalizing the entire face and body. The therapy is described as relaxing and pleasurable, with most sessions lasting about an hour.

At the Chicago Chiropractic Center, we’ve integrated microcurrent therapy into our comprehensive care plan, recognizing its potential to complement our chiropractic services. By offering this therapy, we aim to provide patients with a holistic approach to health and wellness, addressing not only physical but also emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives.
