The 12 Types of People Who Should Avoid Microcurrent Treatments
Yes, there are some people who should avoid Microcurrent?
Anybody who has a pacemaker, metal implants, has cancer or open sores, such as severe acne, impetigo or any other unknown lesions, should avoid the microcurrent facial.
And...if you’re pregnant or nursing...it is always best to avoid all electrical professional or personal devices unless your medical doctors approval first.
If you have cancer….whether you're being treated for cancer or not....if you have it, this is big contraindication (a big no-no) that makes you NOT a candidate for the use of microcurrent at any level.
There is a very good reason for this.
The reason you shouldn’t use microcurrent if you have cancer is that microcurrent is very effective in activating your lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system.
By enhancing moving cellular waste into your lymphatic venous system. Microcurrent enhances your own cellular waste removal, moving this lymph fluid from lymph node to lymph node. Any cancer cells which happen to be shed from this enhanced lymphatic drainage can get swept up into your lymph system...and these cancer cells could accidentally be spread to other parts of your body.
NOTE: Lymph fluid is that clear liquid that seeps out of a popped pimple or healing wound. This is part of your immune system.
So, if you have cancer, give microcurrent a pass.
Obviously, microcurrent is electrical in nature, so it follows that anyone with a condition or disorder which is adversely affected by electrical impulses is not a candidate for microcurrent.
So, avoid microcurrent if you have any of these:
- Metal Implants or pins in the application area
- Under a physician’s care for a disorder, illness, disease, or injury
- Open Sores
- In the first 10 days after engaging in any invasive skin procedures
- Areas where you’ve had facial fillers
Do You Have Facial Fillers? If you had certain face fillers, you also aren’t a good candidate. Patients who’ve had a lot of fillers don't get much benefit from the upper face receiving microcurrent since their muscles are frozen.
