Think this star looks the same as she did in Friends 25 years ago? Then you'll want to know that Jennifer Aniston's microcurrent facials are responsible for her age-defying looks.
Jennifer previously did an interview with InStyle where she talked about her love of microcurrent facials. “It’s like a little workout for your face,” she said. “If you don’t work out, eventually everything drops.”
In case you’re not familiar with it, microcurrent therapy has been used since the 80s to treat sufferers of Bell’s palsy whose muscles have atrophied, before it was developed as a muscle stimulator for beauty treatments.

Microcurrent facials are a treatment where an aesthetician sends tiny electro waves into the muscles to make them contract, with the goal of tightening, lifting and toning your skin, as well as sending fresh blood and nutrients to the surface.
Aniston didn’t elaborate on where or how often she gets her microcurrent facials, but rumor has it that she swears by one particular gadget to give her a lift on-set or before a photoshoot. And better still, you can invest in the same technology for an at-home treatment.
The device is called the NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Kit. It's a handheld device with two metallic spheres at the tip, the idea being that after applying a conductive gel, you slowly run the device over your skin and the spheres work together to create a current. This, in turn, sends low-level electricity into the skin for an immediate lift.
According to the NuFace website, users should initially use the device for five days a week for 60 days (then downgrade to two or three weekly treatments).
Et voila, Aniston's time-machine treatment revealed.
