Does The NuFace, An At-Home Microcurrent Tool, Produce Visible Results?

Nora Milch, Fashion Director

The honest answer is, I'm not sure. I have had facials that incorporate some sort of radio frequency device, but never a full microcurrent facial. I've seen NuFace pop up on some of my favorite beauty sites, like Net-a-Porter, and have always wanted to give it a go. I never turn down an opportunity to give a new skincare solution a try.

I was hoping to target fine lines and define and tone my jawline.

I found it essential. I'm sure you could get a pretty similar experience with a YouTube tutorial, but being able to ask specific questions was super helpful. My co-worker, Alex, at one point exclaimed that she could feel the currency on her skin, assuming this meant it was working. Turns out, it's the opposite. Any minor pain or discomfort means you need to add more gel primer onto your skin.

I primarily used the NuFace Trinity device with the traditional facial trainer attachment (the one with two round balls). I felt like I had mastered how to use this deviceit was simple and straightforward. I have a very specific skincare routine, so at first I was a bit confused how and when to use the leave-on gel primer. My solution was to wash the gel primer off after I used the device and then proceed with my normal routine. I experimented a bit with the lip and eye attachment and the red light therapy attachment, but found the former a bit more complicated to master and the latter a bit too time consuming.

Yes, immediately after each use, my skin felt slightly lifted and more defined. I will absolutely continue to use the NuFace tool.
