Are you trying to have a more youthful appearance by having tighter skin, noticeable facial contouring and higher cheekbones? No worries, you’re certainly not the only one who wants to look better and receive compliments about their looks. Going to spa microcurrent treatments can cost up to $500 per session, and injecting fillers can have tons of side effects like drooping eyelid or crooked smile. We’ve first-hand tested over 24 different microcurrent devices and looked for something that’s painless, affordable, proven to work, suitable for all skin types, and many other important factors.

We tested 24 microcurrent facial sculpting devices, including models from Tria, Silk’n, Braun, and DeluxeSkin. We rated the best five options based on the following criteria:



We tested the effectiveness of several microcurrent facial devices in stimulating the muscles and skin using weak electrical signals. Our goal was to observe the benefits of reducing the visible signs of aging, such as sagging skin and lackluster complexion, over several weeks of regular use. While the results are not as dramatic as those achieved with more invasive procedures like a facelift, some of the devices showed promising results in improving facial tone and texture.




If you were to go the in-office route, it would end up costing up to $500 USD per session (between 6-8 sessions needed for facial sculpting). We were able to get great results with devices that ended up costing less than $500, with the best results from a microcurrent device costing just around $149*.

Safe for At-Home Use


New York-based dermatologist Josh Zeichner, MD, considers microcurrent devices a safe alternative. “By delivering an electrical current to muscles and skin cells. The idea behind this is that the electrical current will build up muscles in the face, lifting and tightening the skin.” Dr. Zeichner explains. “Reports suggest that people can notice an immediate difference after a few sessions. 


We looked for the microcurrent facial sculpting options on the market that make your face tighter & reduce visible signs of aging.

Myolift Mini


The 7E Myolift™ Mini is actually a device that’s purchased by estheticians and beauty professionals for use with clients. However, it can be ordered directly by anyone seeking an at-home microcurrent facial experience.

ZIIP GX Series


ZIIP Beauty GX Series is a luxury skincare device. I want to prime you by spilling that this device costs more than double the price of most other microcurrent devices out there. The reason why is that ZIIP uses both nanocurrent and microcurrent technology to deliver an ultra-professional waveform combination.



DermaWand uses a radiofrequency (RF) skin treatment to create smoother, firmer skin with added radiance. This wand uses microcurrents to improve circulation by bringing fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the surface of the skin. This can help to rev up collagen production to help reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging.

Foreo Bear


This pocket-sized FDA-cleared device combines microcurrent technology with T-Sonic™ massage for some extreme toning. It’s actually designed to “work out” the more than 65 muscles in the face and neck to create contouring and definition. You’re getting salon-quality power with a facial workout that takes just a few minutes a day.

How does this work? Burns hair from the follicle? I’ve tried laser hair removal at a clinic & it was perfect for me.

Clinic laser hair removal is faster to stop hair growth, Silk’n & deluxeskin are about the same.

No skin irritation, i’ve tried 3 of these devices. Hair finally stopped growing back on the armpits & hasn’t grown back for a month.
