Taking care of my skin is a top priority of mine. For the last couple of months, I have been using the NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device before my regular evening skin care routine at least five times a week. The NuFACE Trinity is said to be like a 5 minute face lift. It tones the face while also improving fine lines and wrinkles. It is currently the only handheld micro current device that is approved by the FDA and uses the same technology used by aesthetic professionals. Some of the benefits of use are: firmer muscles, tighter skin, lifted brows, contoured cheekbones and a more defined jaw line.
From the Nuface website:
Microcurrent is a low-level current that typically operates in the range of 0-400 microamps. Microcurrent facial toning devices send soft, gentle waves through the skin in an effort to stimulate ATP production which drives production of collagen and elastin. Microcurrent facial toning devices drive cellular energy production which is needed to produce key structural proteins (collagen and elastin) throughout the skin.
There are currently three attachments that can be used with the NuFACE device. It comes with the microcurrent attachment and you can add the wrinkle remover attachment ($125) and the new lip and eye attachment ($149).
The device is very easy to use so don't be intimidated by it. I have both the microcurrent attachment and the wrinkle remover attachment for my NuFACE Trinity. I got a hands on tutorial from the NuFACE specialists at a press event in SF. From them, I learned how to use it and they watched me try it on myself. It's pretty easy so don't be intimidated by it! For the microcurrent attachment, I first wash my face completely so that it is clean. I then apply the NuFACE gel primer gel that comes with the device (I have since purchased another gel primer off Amazon for only $12.48.) The gel reminds me of when you get an ultrasound, it helps the device run smoothly over your face and helps conduct the microcurrent waves through your skin. If you feel a little static when you use the device on your face, it means you need more gel on the area. Keep this in mind especially when you get close to your hairline. I tend to apply the gel when I first start working on an area and then repeat that until my entire face is done. You will hear a starter beep when you place it on your face and as you slowly move it across your face, there will be an ending beep. The device comes with a booklet which has information on all the steps for using your device and you can also watch the how-to video online. After you are done using the device, you can wash the gel off your face. I have this routine down for my evening routine and it only takes around 5-6 minutes to do my face. I do this 5 times a week and after a few months, you can also bump it down to 3 times a week. See the pictures in the before and after gallery to show you how the cumulative results work.
The wrinkle remover attachment uses red light technology and should be used on a clean dry face. It does take more time to do this as you will need to keep it on specific areas of your face for minutes at a time. I don't do my entire face with this but I do spend a few minutes on specific areas I want to target such as my forehead and under eye area. If you feel like you need this, find ways to use this in times when you are idle such as watching TV or reading a book so you aren't bored starting at yourself in the mirror.
I tried the lip and eye attachment at the press event and saw how it can help lift eyelids and work areas that are hard to reach such as laugh lines between your nose and lips. The NuFACE specialist showed me how she got rid of her brow furrow lines which I could only notice if I looked really close up to her face. She mentioned that it took three months to get the results that I was seeing. Her success story is what motivated me to really be on myself to use the device correctly for 5 times a week. It is really easy and you will feel and possibly see results start to happen within a week.
After two months of use I can feel that my skin has more elasticity and looks more radiant. My under eye area had some slight wrinkles previously and I have seen it greatly reduced as well as the small lines on my forehead. I am loving how my cheeks feel and my defined jaw line. In a crazy coincidence, my friend happened to get this device at the same time as I did and we recently saw each other. Both of us could see a difference in each other's face. (She is in her early 40's.) The NuFACE Trinity is easy to use and takes only a little bit of time and dedication on your part. In the end, the results you will have will be worth it! I have had so many women come up to me in the last two months telling me how amazing my skin looks and thinking I am 10+ years younger than I really am.
