If you wanted a microcurrent treatment you usually had to go to your dermatologist or a high-end spa. But now, since the FDA cleared the NuFace handheld gizmo, you can tone your face at home.
The Microcurrent technology promises to lift and tone the face, reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, improve facial circulation, skin exfoliation, lymphatic drainage, sun damage treatment, skin pigment improvement, product penetration and more.
So, basically, it makes make you look younger.
A noninvasive approach to facial rejuvenation, the NuFace device claims the effects are immediately visible, which is of course what we like to hear. The user glides the easy-to-use device along the contour of the face while a gentle alternating current is emitted through “dual spherical probes.”
Even though the output is less than the one your dermatologist uses, NuFace studies report:.” Examination of skin tissue treated with microcurrent showed a 45% increase in the number of elastin fibers in the dermis, collagen thickness in connective tissue increased 10%, and the number of blood vessels increased by 35%. The application of microcurrent to skin and tissue produced a firmer and tighter feeling on the skin surface.”
Translation : You look younger.
It’s not cheap at $325 but if it does all it promises, it’s a bargain.
You buy it at over 200 Spas nationwide including Bliss Spas, select Dillard’s stores, and select Nordstrom’s and Selfridges London.
