NUFACE:

Tone, Lift,

& Contour 

You might think I’m too young to be using the NuFACE, however there’s so much more to it than anti-aging alone (even though preventing sagging skin is nice too).

This treatment offers immediate lifting and contouring of the face. I’m not kidding — I treat one side of my face at a time to use as comparison for the untouched side and it looks SO much better.

 

I’ve always been interested in what deems someone “unattractive” and “attractive” — what are the characteristics that we as humans subconsciously associate with good-looking people? 

 

I’m sure it’s easy for all of us to say which faces we find attractive and (most) people will usually agree on which faces those are. But few can say precisely why those faces seem more “beautiful”.

 

[DISCLAIMER: There is beauty in EVERYONE but certain facial traits commonly register as more or less attractive to us. That is a fact. Beauty does not have set parameters, but there is a commonality in the faces we are most drawn to.]

 

I’ve read countless studies all aimed at discovering some of the features that make an individual attractive to others. Outside of symmetry, one of the main features that is associated with an “attractive” face is lifted features — this means lifted brows, lifted cheekbones, lifted jawline. This gives the illusion of a “chiseled” face which we tend to find most attractive in both men and women. My favorite example of this is probably Bella Hadid. She is the epitome of a lifted, chiseled face.

 

Now that you know how much I (and most people) love a "lifted" looking face, I’m going to tell you how to achieve it without any surgical intervention or injectables — the best part, you can do it at home on yourself! 

 

The NuFACE sculpts the jawline, cheeks, lifts the brows and opens up the eyes — everything we just talked about that embodies attractiveness. 

 

This device contours your face to provide both instant and long term results which is why it’s often referred to as the 5 Minute Facial-Lift. It’s also far more natural, safe, and painless than going under the knife. If you think at home devices are scammy, please take a look at some NuFACE before and after photos — they are no joke!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The NuFACE is a handheld device that uses microcurrents (cleared by the FDA) for facial stimulation. The microcurrent device emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents which mirror your own body’s electrical currents to tighten facial muscles. This process literally makes your face tighter and more youthful, pulling your features upwards and lifting loose skin and deep wrinkles as you glide it along your face. The high frequency electrical signals reach deep into the facial muscles and surrounding tissues to stimulate facial muscles to contract.

 

You’ll see a more defined look right away because the muscles are responding to the microcurrents and contracting and tightening (just like a workout). Part of looking older is just your facial muscles loosing their tone which makes them droop and give the appearance of a sagging face. Your muscles literally migrate down your face over time which is why "training" and strengthening them helps restore a youthful appearance.

 

BACKGROUND 

Microcurrent technology has been around since the 1800s as a treatment for damaged tissues and muscles. One physician noticed that the face of his patients appeared much smoother and younger looking after receiving microcurrent therapy, and hence, this high-tech aesthetic treatment was born. There’s also no need to be scared, the intensity is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb, just so you know.

 

RESULTS

Thirty-two different facial muscles are manipulated during a microcurrent treatment and as a result, the entire face becomes lifted and contoured

 

You’ll see visible results from just one treatment. Your skin will appear tightened, your jaw line will be more defined, your cheekbones more pronounced, and your eyes will look younger and refreshed.

NUFACE

NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device

My FAVORITE thing to do is the Advanced 15-Minute Facial which targets a sharp jawline and cheek contour. This routine is outlined on the NuFACE website!     

I love to use my NuFACE especially before doing my makeup. It really helps contour my facial structure which then only has to be enhanced with makeup!
