NuFACE Review: At-Home Electronic Skin Rejuvenator
The world of anti-aging is more advanced than ever. While facelifts and other surgical procedures are still popular and effective, recent technology has made it possible to achieve significant anti-aging results without a scalpel, anesthesia, or major operation. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures like BOTOX®Cosmetic and the IPL Photofacial offer low-risk procedures with a high payoff. As cosmetic anti-aging gets easier and more accessible, the market for at-home cosmetic tools is also growing. It leaves many cosmetically-minded consumers wondering: Is it possible to get professional-grade results from a skincare product you can use at home?
Introducing NuFACE®, a handheld device designed to increase collagen, elastin, circulation, product penetration, and cellular activity in the skin. All of these components are vital to healthy skin, and encouraging their re-growth can pave the way to a youthful glow. NuFACE promises that their product mimics the effect of the facial treatments you’d find at a plastic surgeon’s office or skincare spa.
How Does NuFACE Work?
The NuFACE device emits electronic currents that penetrate the deepest layers of the skin. The currents stimulate the muscles without contracting them, which can cause the muscles to wear out. NuFACE definitely isn’t painful, but users will be able to feel the currents as they pass through the skin, stimulating cell growth and other factors necessary for youthful looking skin. Each NuFACE kit includes a special conductivity gel that allows the tool to glide across your face easily. There are two techniques to using the NuFace: basic and advanced. The basic technique involves just running the tool around the contours of the face. During the advanced technique, the user holds the tool over problem areas (jowls, nasolabial folds, crow’s feet) for five seconds before moving onto the contours of the face. The entire treatment should take no longer than five minutes and can be used once daily, morning or night. After a NuFACE treatment, users should spray their face with the included Optimizing Mist to prolong the benefits of the NuFACE. The NuFACE retails for about $250.
NuFACE Compared to Professional Skincare Treatments
Dermatologists have used the power of electronic currents on the skin for quite some time. eMatrix Skin Rejuvenation is one of the most popular non-invasive skincare treatments available, known for its ability smooth wrinkles and tighten sagging skin through a series of spa-like facial treatments. A similar technology powers cellulite treatments VelaShape™ and VelaSmooth™ by breaking down fat deposits.
While NuFACE definitely runs along the same lines as the eMatrix and other professional treatments, its at-home convenience also means that it’s not as powerful. NuFACE indicates that their device is gentle enough to use everyday on any part of the exterior body. There’s also something to be said regarding a trained clinician performing electrocurrent facials and an inexperienced NuFACE customer using their tool. A clinician will have had special trainings to increase the effectiveness of the treatment—knowing which spots to focus on, movement techniques, how much conductivity gel to use, etc. Plus, the price of the NuFACE isn’t change in the pocket for most people—it may be worthwhile to put that money toward professional-grade treatments.
