Do Microcurrent Devices Work?


The skincare world is ever-evolving, with an increasing interest in non-invasive treatments that support and maintain healthy, glowing skin. While procedures such as chemical peels are thought to be effective and may address certain skincare concerns, they can be quite irritating to the skin — and they often require a long period of recovery before the results become clear.

Similarly, at-home treatments like microneedling carry a risk of skin damage, especially if you have sensitive skin.

For these reasons, microcurrent technology, a gentle yet effective option, is taking center stage. But as with any new skincare trend or product, it’s not uncommon to wonder whether or not it’s actually effective — or if it’s just another passing fad.

To help you untangle fact from fiction, let’s go over everything there is to know about microcurrent devices so that you can make the right decisions for your skin with confidence.

What Is Microcurrent Technology?

Microcurrent technology is a fascinating area of skincare that leverages the power of low-level electrical currents. These currents are similar to the body’s natural bioelectrical field and have been used for various wellness-focused applications.

Microcurrent devices are used to support skin health, offering a calming and soothing effect. They are designed to synchronize with the natural electrical patterns and frequencies in the body, creating a harmonious skincare experience that’s truly cutting-edge.

These devices are easy to use and are often handheld and portable, making them a popular choice among professionals and skincare enthusiasts alike.

How Do Microcurrent Devices Work?

The science behind microcurrent devices is quite intriguing. These devices work by sending gentle electrical signals to the skin. These signals are believed to help maintain skin wellness and support overall skin health.

The body naturally has its own electrical currents that aid in cellular functions. Microcurrent devices are designed to emulate these currents. The devices send waves that mimic the body’s natural currents, which can help the skin maintain its normal functions rather than changing or modifying body functions or structures.

Microcurrent devices are carefully calibrated to work in harmony with your body’s bioelectric field. They help to soothe and calm the skin, making them a wonderful tool for estheticians who are eager to offer their clients a holistic approach to skincare. Remember, these devices are not meant to treat, cure, or prevent any diseases.

They are a supportive tool that can help to maintain overall skin wellness. By complementing the body’s natural bioelectrical patterns, microcurrent devices can be an engaging and innovative part of any skincare regimen.

What Are the Benefits of Microcurrent Devices Over Other Options?

Microcurrent devices have a range of benefits that can help to maintain and support skin wellness, making them an asset in any skincare routine. Let’s delve into the specifics of how these devices can contribute to overall skin health.

Non-Invasive and Gentle

Microcurrent devices provide a calming and soothing experience for the skin. Because they work in harmony with the body’s own electrical currents, they support the skin in a uniquely tailored way. Many estheticians and skincare enthusiasts appreciate this gentle approach and the comforting experience it offers to the skin.


While each modality has its own unique strengths, microcurrent devices offer a compelling combination of ease of use, versatility, and comfort. They are highly accessible and user-friendly, making them a popular choice for both professional estheticians and skincare aficionados.

While microcurrent devices should not be expected to cure, prevent, or treat any diseases, they are certainly an exciting addition to the modern skincare toolkit! One of our favorite options for maintaining a radiant complexion is the MiTAMA Microcurrent.

This device is small but mighty — it fits perfectly into the palm of your hand, and although you only need to use it once a week for no more than 10 minutes, it’s so fun to use that you just might find yourself making the MiTAMA Microcurrent part of your daily routine.

The nano and microcurrent signals communicate through the skin at a cellular level to rejuvenate skin by supporting the skin cells’ natural repair and refresh processes. If you’re looking to lift, rejuvenate, and rebuild your skin — or that of your clients — while supporting a glowing, even complexion, make the MiTAMA your TAMA today.

Are There Any Misconceptions or Concerns Around Microcurrent?

Like many innovative technologies, microcurrent devices have been the subject of misconceptions and concerns. Let’s address some of the common misunderstandings you may have about incorporating these devices into your skincare routine.

A frequent misconception about microcurrent devices is that they can be harmful or cause discomfort — but this couldn’t be further from the truth!

In fact, microcurrent devices are specifically designed to be gentle and comforting to the skin. They use low-level currents similar to the body’s natural bioelectric field, resulting in a calming and soothing experience.

How To Use a Microcurrent Device in Your Nightly Routine

Incorporating a microcurrent device into your nightly skincare routine can help you maintain skin wellness and support overall skin health. Here’s a simple three-step routine featuring a cleanser, serum, and moisturizer, along with your microcurrent device.

1. Cleanse

Begin your routine with our Exfoliating Cleanser. This cleanser gently removes the day’s grime and makeup, leaving your skin fresh and ready for the next steps of your routine.

This sulfate-free, polishing, luxury cleanser combines the purest quality full spectrum CBD with apricot seed to deliver vital nutrients while applying gentle exfoliation. Its soothing effect makes it an excellent start to any skincare routine.

2. Microcurrent Device

After cleansing, it’s time to use your microcurrent device! Ensure your skin is thoroughly dry. Start with a low setting and gently glide the device over your skin, following the contours of your face.


Follow your microcurrent treatment with a rich, Anti-Aging Moisturizer.

This moisturizer helps lock in the benefits of your microcurrent treatment, leaving your skin feeling nourished and calm and boosted by a power-blend of micro-algae and probiotics.

4. Serum

Next, apply the Luxury Glo Facial Serum. Described by some as “the holy grail of facial serums,” this light, repairing oil synergistically blends CBD and balancing probiotics with hydrating omega-3 fatty acids and potent antioxidants.

It supports overall skin wellness, helps support skin cell health during exposure to free radicals, and uses the plant power of over 15 botanicals to leave you feeling as radiant as you look.

This simple nightly routine can help you get the most out of your microcurrent device by supporting your skin on every level. Consistency is key with any skincare routine, as is patience — no matter how effective your products are, it can take time to see long-term changes in your complexion.

But whether you’re addressing specific skin concerns or just trying to improve your complexion overall — or even trying to maintain your natural glow as you age — a simple but nourishing skincare routine, when combined with microcurrent devices, can work wonders.


The ever-evolving world of skincare is full of opportunities for innovation and improvement. Thanks to their calming, non-invasive approach, microcurrent devices offer a fresh way to maintain skin wellness and radiance. While they’re not a cure or treatment for any specific conditions, they do play an impressive role in maintaining a glowing complexion.

As you incorporate a microcurrent device into your routine, remember that it’s one tool among many in your arsenal. Its true power lies in its ability to fit seamlessly into a comprehensive skincare regimen that’s tailored to your skin’s unique needs.

With this knowledge, you’re well-equipped to navigate the world of skincare and find what works best for you and your complexion.
