NuFACE Mini+ On-the-Go Facial Toning Starter Kit

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

NuFACE MINI+ On-the-Go Facial Toning Starter Kit is an effective microcurrent device that contours and tones the face with visible, long-lasting effects with continued use. In fact, they call NuFACE "Fitness for Your Face."

The underlying idea is that as the body ages that the" body’s natural current begins to slow down (like our metabolism) leading to sagging skin, loss of contour & wrinkles." The NuFACE Trinity seeks to redress this sagging by toning facial muscles while simultaneously improving skin tone, improving contour, and by reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

According to NuFACE,

Sculpt and firm the face & neck, improve cheek contour, lift brows, and smooth lines anytime, anywhere. The sleek, FDA-Cleared MINI+ Smart Device is perfect for lifting on-the-go.

A microcurrent skin-care device and regimen to help firm the face and neck, improve cheek contour, lift brows and smooth lines anytime, anywhere. Take your tone, lift and contour on the go with the award-winning MINI+ Smart Microcurrent Device. Smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the skin's surface or sculpt deep down to the muscles for a more lifted, contoured appearance. Unlock exclusive treatments for customized results by pairing your MINI+ with the NuFACE Smart App.

About the Founder,

NuFACE founder Carol Cole began her career more than 30 years ago as an aesthetician at the famed Golden Door Spa in Southern California, where she specialized in microcurrent facials. Working with her two daughters, Carol launched the first NuFACE device in 2005. Today the brand is focused on transforming women's skin care through clinically proven, noninvasive, cost-effective devices that are FDA-cleared.

What is Microcurrent Technology?

Microcurrent is one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry and is used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most users feel nothing at all.

Microcurrent is capable of facial stimulation, sending soft, gentle waves through the skin, tissues and down to the facial muscles. Microcurrent has been shown to stimulate ATP production, which drives the creation of key structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin.

This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles, similar to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies. Unlike anywhere else on the body, the facial muscles are directly connected to the skin, so the result of energizing the muscle is often an improved, lifted appearance.

Treatment Areas:
The NuFACE Mini+ is designed to stimulate larger surface areas of the face, such as the jawline, cheekbones and forehead.

Here is a comprehensive breakdown of the areas to treat with the double sphere attachment that comes with the NuFACE Mini+:

1) Jowl and Jaw: Place one she rep on the jawing with the other sphere slightly outside the corner of the mouth. Slowly glide to the lower ear until the beep sounds (5 seconds).

2) Lower Cheeks: Place one sphere under the corner of the mouth. Slowly glide to the hairline at the mid-ear until the beep sounds (5 seconds).

3) Upper Cheeks: Place one sphere outside the corner of the mouth with the other sphere above the first sphere (both spheres should be on the nasolabial fold). Slowly glide to the hairline at the upper ear until the beep sounds (5 seconds). DO NOT PLACE THE SPHERES IN THE EYE AREA; GLIDE ALONG THE ORBITAL BONE. 

1) Thick of Brow: Place both spheres horizontally above the thick of the eyebrow. Slowly glide upward to the airline until the heel sounds (5 seconds).

2) Arch of Brow: Place both spheres horizontally, slightly above the arch of the eyebrow. Slowly glide upward to the hairline until the beep sounds (5 seconds). 

3) Thin of Brow: Place both spheres horizontally slightly above the thin of the brow. Slowly glide upward to the hairline until the beep sounds (5 seconds). 

Directions: Cleanse with an oil-free cleanser. Using the Clean Sweep Brush, apply a mask-like layer of your favorite NuFACE® microcurrent activator in sections as you lift. Perform glides/holds using your MINI+® microcurrent device. Please keep in mind that the MINI+® device automatically powers off after 5 minutes. Apply eye cream, moisturizer and don't forget SPF!

Step-By-Step Instructions:
1. Prep: Wash face with an oil-free cleanser. Cleansers that contain oil interfere with the efficacy of the microcurrent device, and should therefore be avoided. Apply NuFACE Aqua Gel Activator to the area being treated before gliding the device over that area. Do not apply the gel to your entire face all at once, but instead to each area as you treat the individual areas.

2. Lift: Turn the NuFACE Mini+ on high and then glide the device over face as directed. If you feel the current apply more gel. If you still feel it, then lower the setting. Do not skip the application of the Gel Primer– it is an absolutely essential step for all microcurrent treatments. The NuFACE Aqua Gel Activator, "ensures maximum microcurrent conductivity and allows your device to easily glide across the skin for optimum results."

I would suggest doing one side of your face at a time, and then looking in the mirror to see the difference between the left and right sides of your face– you will be astonished by the difference.

3. Finish: Remove NuFACE Aqua Gel Activator with a damp cloth.

  1. Wow, does the NuFace sound intriguing to me! I wonder if it could be used on my sore neck? Hmmm.

    1. It is a wonderful device, Allison! I have absolutely no idea if it would work on your sore neck, but I would check with your doctor first to see if they think that would be a good application for a sore neck. I would say this especially since you had surgery not that long ago.
