Originally developed as a muscle stimulator back in the '80s, microcurrent has since become a staple in the spa industry due to its minimally invasive nature and impressive results. As such, spas across the globe have been incorporating the treatment onto their menus to offer clients what has been referred to as a five minute face lift. Microcurrent treatments are known to stimulate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, which drives the creation of key structural proteins like collagen and elastin, which help build and repair skin overtime. Typically, clients have to go to a spa to get such a treatment performed—until now. Enter: NuFace, the only FDA-approved hand-held microcurrent device for at home use.

How can Nuface benefit your spa? The device works to enhance skincare products already being used in treatments or routines, meaning if you're looking for an easy way to provide microcurrent to your clients, you can likely work a Nuface device into any of your existing menu options. Offer it as an add-on to boost your bottom line or gift it to your VIP clients as a thank you for their business. Additionally, since the devices are suitable for at-home use, they make great additions to spa retail areas. Recommend your clients pick one up to assist in maintaining their post-visit skin at home.

Here, watch American Spa's associate editor Samantha Reed try one of the newest NuFace launches, the NuFace Fix, and learn more about the brand from Shawna Dahl, national accounts manager for NuFace, in this exclusive interview from Spatec by American Spa.
