Nuface Anti Aging Facial Toning Device

We all are searching for that elusive fountain of youth with skin care products and skin care devices. Do they work? Many actually do improve the look of the skin. They may not make you look as if you had a face lift, but they do make the skin look firmer and a little younger looking.
NuFACE
NuFACE is an anti aging skin care device that you can use at home to improve the look of your face. A woman came to our salon to demonstration on this device a little while ago. One of us salon girls was the model. She treated half of the model's face so we could see what NuFACE actually does. It was amazing!!! The treated side of the face was noticeably smoother and lifted. Her face actually looked saggy on the untreated side. That was just one treatment. The model said please do the other side!!! 

NuFACE uses microcurrent to tone the muscles (which lifts the skin), define the jawline and smooth wrinkles. Microcurrent is a low level electrical current that can stimulate facial muscles and stimulate production of collagen and elastin in the skin. It is also called Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation. Microcurrent has been used in the medical community to treat nerve and muscle pain and inflammation. It's also used by some salons and spas as an anti aging facial treatment. It is safe, comfortable and FDA approved. Microcurrent passively stimulates the muscles. You do not feel a shock or muscle contraction, but you may feel a tingling feeling. Some people say that they experience a metal taste in their mouth during use. You can adjust the intensity level for your comfort. I have read you can use microcurrent on any part of the body.

NuFACE makes two microcurrent devices, the Trinity and the Mini. The Trinity is designed to have multiple anti aging attachments. The Mini is a smaller portable device with no capability of attachments. It comes with the Mini Device, a 2oz Gel Primer and a Power Adapter for $199.00

The Trinity with Facial Trainer comes with the NuFACE Trinity Device, the Facial Trainer which is the ball attachment, a 2 oz. Gel Primer and the Charging Cradle with Power Adapter for $325.00. The other available attachments are the NuFACE Trinity ELE attachment for the eye area and lip area, $149.00, and the NuFACE Trinity Wrinkle Reducer attachment,$149.00. Both can be purchased separately.

The face is treated section by section with glide and hold motions. The NuFACE device has a timer that beeps to let you know when to move it. A gel primer is applied to each section of the face before the area is treated. The primer is necessary to conduct the electrical current.

The Basic Procedure

Start by cleansing your face with a oil free cleanser and pat dry.

Apply a thick layer of Gel Primer to your left cheek and jawline.

Use the Trinity as directed 3 times on the cheek.

Apply a thick layer of Gel Primer to the left half of the forehead.

Use the Trinity as directed 3 times on the forehead left side.

Apply a thick layer of Gel Primer to the right half of the forehead.

Use the Trinity as directed 3 times on the forehead right side.

Apply a thick layer of Gel Primer to the right cheek and jawline. 

Use the Trinity as directed 3 times on the right cheek.

Remove the gel with a damp cloth.

Apply your moisturizer.

Use the Trinity for 5 minutes per day 5 times a week for the first 60 days. After 60 days, use the Trinity 2-3 times a week for maintenance.


The ELE Attachment

The NuFACE  ELE attachment has long electrodes with small balls to treat the areas around the eyes and lips that are hard to reach with the Facial Trainer attachment. There is a specific treatment procedure (as with the facial procedure) for use on both areas. See the details on the NuFACE site.

Contraindications:
Do not use microcurrent if you are pregnant or are under 18 or have a history of seizures or epilepsy or have a pacemaker or electronically implanted device or have active cancer. Consult your doctor about any other medical concerns. 

The Wrinkle Reducer Attachment

The NuFACE Wrinkle Reducer attachment uses light therapy instead of microcurrent for anti aging treatment. Red, amber and infrared light wavelengths penetrate the skin to the dermal layer to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The light causes a natural reaction in the cells of the skin facilitating cellular change which ultimately results in increased collagen and elastin. There is a specific treatment procedure to follow. See the details on the NuFACE site.

Contraindications:
You should not look directly in to the light. Do not use the wrinkle reducer if you are pregnant or are under 18 or have a history of seizures, are sensitive to light or are using medication that causes sensitive to light. Do not use it on the neck if you have a thyroid problem or suspect a thyroid problem. Do not use it on suspicious or cancerous lesions. Do not use with topical or systemic steroids.

The Results
I have a client using the NuFACE Trinity and she loves it! She has been using it as directed for 5 minutes 5 days a week. She is also using the ELE attachment to treat her eye and lip area. She feels a very slight tingling sensation sometimes while using the device. Her skin doesn't get red or irritated from the treatment. She notices a definite lift in her face and her jawline is more defined.  When she first started using NuFACE, she did the treatment on one side of her face then showed her husband. The difference was so noticeable between the two sides of the face, he thought something was wrong with her with that sagging on one side!!! She highly recommends it. I think she looks  younger and fabulous!

I have read some reviews where people have experienced hyper pigmentation after using NuFACE especially when doing the hold motions. If you are a person susceptible to hyper pigmentation, this device may not be for you. If you want to try it anyway, avoid doing the holds. Keep the device moving.  

Where to Buy It
You can purchase the NuFACE Trinity or Mini on their site, at Ulta,  Sephora, Macy's or on Amazon. I don't usually see it on sale but you can sometimes find a deal on Amazon. It would be a fantastic Christmas gift!


Happy Holidays
and
Have a Beautiful Day!
