NuFACE: The 411 on facial toning

We’ve seen evidence of early Spring blooms around the Bay and it got us thinking about finally peeling ourselves out of a winter coat and chunky sweater and into more warmer-weather garb. The best Spring look of all? Fresh and luminous skin, of course! As beauty junkies, we’re always excited to try new skincare technology, but when we tried the NuFACE toning device, we knew we had to make these results available to our clients. 

 

What is it?

The NuFACE device reduces wrinkles and smooths and tones the skin through microcurrent technology that stimulates collagen and elastin.

 

Is it safe?

Yes! NuFACE is the first and only FDA-cleared, handheld toning device for contouring the skin, improving skin tone and reducing wrinkles.

 

Does it actually work?

Yes! A few members of the Indulge team have started using NuFACE regularly and we’re already loving the results we’re seeing.

But you don’t have to take our word for it… An outside study was conducted to explore the effectiveness of the device. The results of the study reflected ours. When using the NuFACE Trinity for just five minutes per day for 60 days, 85% found improved facial contouring, 80% felt that their skin was smoother and 77% reported that their face was more toned.

 

How do I use it?

We like to accompany our NuFACE device with brand’s Gel Primer or Hydrating Leave-On Gel Primer. There are additional products and serums available to target specific skin concerns such as the Lifter Infusion Serum, the Smoother Infusion Serum, Anti-Aging Infusions and a Wrinkle Reducer.

From start to finish, using the NuFACE is an easy 3-step process. With a clean, dry, makeup-free face, apply the primer of your choice. Second, simply glide the NuFACE device slowly over the contours of your face starting at the chin and moving upward (the device will beep every three seconds to ensure you’re treating each side evenly). You’ll repeat this action three or more times, slowing your movement through areas of concern. Finally, using your cleanser, wash off the primer (unless you’re using the Leave-On Gel Primer) then apply your favorite moisturizer.

And just like that, wah-lah! Beautiful, soft and smooth skin.

 

What does it feel like?

Mostly nothing! Of note, there’s no vibrating or pulsing like we expected. Using our Trinity Pro, there are two metal spheres that gently massage the curves of our faces. If we add a bit of pressure, it’s heavenly!

 

How much is it?

We carry the NuFACE Trinity Pro (a stronger version of what you’ll find elsewhere) at Indulge Salon and Skin for $325 and the NuBODY for $399.

 

Anything else?

It’s recommended that those who are pregnant not use the NuFACE toning device. If you’re interested in learning more about NuFACE and if it’s a good fit for you, stop in for a consultation with one of our estheticians.

Indulge yourself! Come pick up either of the NuFACE devices we carry in preparation for warm weather days. At Indulge Salon and Skin in Whitefish Bay, we’re all about connecting you with the experts and products that help you look and feel your best. We look forward to seeing you!
