The revolution of skin care technology has taken great leaps and bounds with the introduction of clinically proven do-it-yourself skin care treatments in the form of handheld devices. These used to be administered in professional derma clinics, so we schedule appointments with our dermatologist or skin care experts for a session. This time, it may no longer be the case, not if you opt to explore the new technology that can be comfortably conducted at your own home.
Have you tried breaking free from your regular skin care routine? If you haven’t, now is the time to give new technology a try and see for yourself if it overwhelms you or not. Let us focus on an award-winning skin care device called NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device which you probably may have or have not heard about. It recently won the MECCA Beauty Election this year, so we can safely say that this product has proven its effectiveness in its field. In this NuFACE Trinity Review, we will discuss what kind of skin care treatment is NuFACE Trinity and how it works.
What is NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device?
Otherwise known as the “5 Minute Face-Lift”, NuFACE Trinity is a facial toning system that incorporates soft wave micro-current technology (also known as micro-current electrical neuromuscular stimulation) in the treatment through the two globe-shaped nobs. As an innovatively-designed multi-skin care solution, its primary goal on your skin is rejuvenation and overall enhanced appearance. It started gaining popularity when it was showcased in The Doctors.

NuFACE emphasizes that while exercise tones the body, their NuFACE micro-current devices such as this one is also like exercise on the facial muscles that tones the face with visible effects. They even termed NuFACE as “Fitness for Your Face.”
Their underlying notion is that the body’s natural current starts to slow down as the person also ages, thus the problems of skin sagging, wrinkles and loss of facial contour. NuFACE Trinity was created to address the problem of skin sagging through facial muscle toning using the micro-current device while also stimulating enhanced skin tone, facial contour and reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The Science of Micro-Current Technology
In the anti-ageing industry, micro-current is one of the remarkable innovations being used in spas and derma clinics for facial contouring and skin toning and firming. Micro-current is a low level type of current that attempts to imitate the body’s natural current providing both instant and gradual results.
The technology of micro-current is sub-sensory so the treatment is soothing and the user feels nothing at all. It is capable of facial stimulation where soft, gentle waves are delivered through the skin, tissues and to the facial muscles. Micro-current was found out to stimulate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production that also stimulates the production of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin.
How to Use NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device
As a general instruction, charge first NuFACE Trinity for 12 hours before using it. As a preparation, wash the face to remove any make-up using an oil-free cleanser (oil-based products hamper the penetration of micro-current device). Apply NuFACE Gel Primer on targeted areas but not on the entire face all at once. The gel primer is never to be missed because it ensures maximum and optimal micro-current conductivity and also lets the device glide easily over the skin.
Next step is the lifting procedure. Turn the device on high intensity and start gliding it over the area with gel primer. If you feel the current, add more gel or you can lower the intensity to medium.
Third and last step is to remove the gel primer using a damp cloth.
The NuFACE Trinity device is designed to stimulate larger surface portions of the face just like the cheekbones, forehead and jawline, so you can target the micro-current on these areas for optimum treatment.

Pros and Cons of NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device
One obvious advantage of NuFACE Trinity is its ergonomic design. The two spherical nobs are perfectly sized that glide easily on large surface areas of the skin and the device itself is snuggly fit in the hand, making it easy to hold and move around during the treatment.
Another advantage is the convenience of holding a skin care treatment at your home instead of paying a visit at medical spas which are surely more costly on the budget.
However, because we are dealing micro-current technology here, there may be times when the device can induce an uncomfortable prickling sensation even at low intensity. A probable reason for this is that the gel primer applied is not as thick as it should be so that the device can glide easily.
Another possible con is the reaction of the gel primer to some users whose skins are sensitive to irritants. The ingredients of the gel primer contain irritants like acrylic acid polymer (film forming agent), prolylene glycol (a petroleum derivative), and methylisothiazolinone (neurotoxin). If your skin reacts to the gel primer, you can replace it with another soothing gel such as aloe vera.
