Microcurrent Facial Devices: What Are They & What Are Their Benefits?

If I’m being honest with myself, about 80 percent of my obsession with David Bowie has to do with his cheekbones and overall sharp-edged, beautiful face. Yes, the music, and yes, the eyes, but let me say it again: cheekbones. But no matter how many strange expressions I make, my cheeks remain pinchable and my jawline will never compare to David Bowie’s. Cue the violins, and break out that contour powder, I guess. So you can imagine how the idea of microcurrent facial devices, like the famed NuFace, appeal to me. Five minutes a day for a more lifted, contoured face? I don’t mind if I do.

But let’s be real—they’re expensive, and I have a bad habit of using devices and then setting them down, forgetting about them, and never using them again. If I’m going to shell out a couple hundred dollars, I need to know it works. To give the 411 (do the youths even get that reference?) on if microcurrent devices are worth the splurge, I turn faithfully to Dr. Karan Lal, dermatologist and purveyor of skin truths. Below, he breaks down what exactly these devices do, who they work best for, and if you should invest in one.
