Botox and Microcurrent Treatments Coexisting | 7E Wellness

In the modern aesthetics industry, one thing we are most grateful for is the ability to combine treatments and modalities to capitalize on anti-aging skincare benefits. When Microcurrent first resurfaced in aesthetics in the 2000s and grew in popularity, there were a lot of conversations about how it compared to Botox. The biggest concern was if we would have to choose one over the other in our anti-aging skincare regimen. Fortunately, we know now that it is more than possible and safe for Botox and Microcurrent to coexist.

Here are the main points to remember for maintaining a healthy relationship between Botox and Microcurrent treatments.

• It is important to note that Microcurrent is a fantastic modality to use before you get your next Botox injection. When we add ATP to the muscles via the delivery of Microcurrent to the skin and muscles, it helps bring some life back to the muscle that has been frozen. This can actually help the botox to last longer!

• Microcurrent stimulates the muscles and activates them while Botox freezes the muscles. If you have just had Botox done in a certain area, you may need to avoid using microcurrent in that area, as it will start to undo the effect of Botox.

• However, if you are in the phase where the effect of Botox is running out, then microcurrent might be a better technology to use in that area to avoid usage of Botox altogether. It will take some time but your muscles will reactivate and help build tone and firmness, instead of getting more laxed due to Botox. “After the initial 48 hours time, it’s absolutely fine to do LED or microcurrent facials after botox,” says Leading Physician Dr. Rowe.

• There is no effect of microcurrent on Juvederm and it’s safe to use it.  However, you should still consult your doctor.

• To be on the safer side, always ask your clients when they got their last Botox injection before booking any appointment for microcurrent therapy and reconfirm once they arrive. This ensures the best outcome and experience and also helps build trust for your clients to know that you are well educated and thinking about their conditions constantly. It will keep your clients coming back for more.
There are countless modalities and treatments to help with aging gracefully, and having the opportunity to use them in a complimentary manner is one of the best gifts of modern-day aesthetics.

I had Botox 2 weeks ago on 11s and crows feet. How can I still lift my brow area without effecting the Botox in my brow and crows feet?

Hello- I thought the “erase” setting was meant to elongate/relax muscles. This post make is seem like all microcurrent stimulates/shortens muscles. If this is so, then there seems to be incorrect information about the “erase” setting. And if this is so, there seems to be areas on the face that those wanting to avoid Botox should never use microcurrent on. Please confirm. – Kayla
