Microcurrent treatments have been used by salon aestheticians for years to help treat rosacea. But do microcurrent treatments really help rosacea? Let’s look at this popular cutting-edge technology and possible causes of rosacea.
Please note: Always consult your GP or health provider for medical advice on a problematic skin condition.
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that creates a redness or blushing effect across your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. It can appear either as tiny broken blood vessels or small bumps, and it can cause dry or even swollen skin patches. It’s a frustrating long-term problem for lots of people, and some experience constant redness. Common triggers can include alcohol, caffeine or hot drinks, spicy food, cheese and exercise, such as running.
What causes rosacea?
The problem with rosacea is that it’s a very misunderstood skin condition. Some (unproven) theories suggest it’s caused by genetics, abnormal blood vessels or possibly gut bacteria. And because it’s so misunderstood, it’s often wrongly treated as eczema or dermatitis. Some people have found the condition worsens with a poor diet and stress, so taking care of yourself needs to be your top priority. Microcurrent is a popular way to manage rosacea.
What is microcurrent?
Microcurrent works by sending small pulses of electricity through your skin and facial muscles. This gentle electrical current penetrates deeply, improving blood circulation and increasing cell turnover, which in turn boosts collagen and elastin production. Microcurrent facials have been used for years to treat a number of skincare conditions and to promote healing. It was originally invented as a medical device to treat muscle conditions and injuries.
How does microcurrent treat skin?
As microcurrent promotes cell renewal and healing, it’s a proven and effective treatment for rosacea. The small pulses of electricity give your skin the energy it needs to kickstart the repair process. Increased blood flow brings all the nutrients to your skin cells so they can regenerate. The process is so gentle, your skin won’t feel irritated – you may just feel the odd twitch. A superconductive gel is often applied beforehand to ensure a smooth glide.
The MAGNITONE LiftOff Microcurrent Facial Toning Device helps to regenerate your skin at a cellular level. As well as lifting your skin so it’s tighter and more supple, the increased blood circulation can help you manage rosacea. Pain-free, non-invasive and designed for sensitive skin, you can enjoy your very own microcurrent experience in the comfort of your own home.

Managing rosacea starts by looking after your health and your skin. As well as trying a microcurrent treatment, always treat your skin like a temple. Remove makeup before you go to bed, do a gentle daily cleanse, and some sufferers suggest micellar water works well.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eat a healthy diet. Zone out of daily life regularly with meditation or another form of pure relaxation to keep your stress levels down. Lastly, build some ‘me time’ into your routine, including some regular pamper sessions.
