NuFACE Trinity At-Home Facial Toner w/ Effective Lip & Eye Attachment
BEWARE AND BE IMFORMED
I began to get a few broken capillaries after using for my nasal to mouth lines. Therefore,I retuned and hoping these capillaries will eventually go away. Keep a good skin care regimen like Dr. Perricone and in my opinion, you will be a lot better off. I really saw no improvement and it was too time consuming, I did not like having to use the gel, skeptical of the safety of the device and certainly, I am not happy about the broken capillaries on my face. In my opinion, a lot of hype.
Excited for Nothing!
I bought this as TSV looking forward to toning my face. I have used this appliance faithfully for the past 60 days with no results. I know they want you to use it for 90 days but honestly, sixty days with not ONE sign of a result anywhere doesn't make me feel that another 30 days is going to help me achieve results. I am 59 years old and maybe my skin is too old for this appliance. I have been using high quality skin care ingredients since I was 19 years old. My skin is actually in great shape with almost no wrinkling but I feel I need toning. I used this appliance every day and hit all the areas instructed for more than the three passes suggested. And YES, I did see "immediate results" that lasted less than one minute before my skin reverted back to the un-toned look. This appliance is just too expensive and time consuming for what you get and I have better things to do with my time!
Like many others, did this faithfully everyday with no results and the metal taste in my mouth. The gel dried out my skin and I see new wrinkles! I really wanted this for my drooping eyelids but no luck. Going back.
Takes Too Long
I purchased this when it was the TSV. The first time I used it my face was red and had a rash. I was allergic to the gel. Then I purchased NuFace's Crème Primer which I cannot stand. It is very thin and dries very quickly. I had to apply it on a small area, then stop and apply to another small area, etc.. It was taking forever. I then bought electrode gel which works fine as long as I put it on thickly. If I use a thin coating, I feel the jolts. I still find I have to apply it in two sections. I then had some oral surgery and couldn't use it for a week. In the time I've had it, I've probably used in for 3-3 1/2 weeks because of the time involved in finding and purchasing the different gels and my surgery. I thought I could see some improvement, but I think it's wishful thinking. I just do not have the time required to use this device every single night for the prescribed time. It takes longer than stated because of applying the gel in sections and changing the heads on the device.
Purchased this as the TSV based on the live tv presentations. Followed instructions...no change or firming to any portion of my face...it actually left little marks on my upper eyelids where the contact points were. I am use to this type of lunchtime facial...have recd service elsewhere. Returned unit for refund.
I'm A Believer
I have always taken pretty good care of my skin. I have been using eye cream since my 20's, and I've invested in better serums and creams over the years. I have combo-oily skin with occassional breakouts. I will be turning 40 this year so I decided to order this. I got it on Waitlist about a week ago and have used it 5-6 times, mostly with the main ball attachment, and twice usingthe ELE attachment. Normally I'd wait longer and use a product more before doing a review since it can take awhile to see results (and it drives me crazy when someone uses a product once or twice and gives it a bad review when it can take weeks to see results and sometimes it's the user that's the problem), but I already am and I wanted to share....
First few time I used it on the 3rd (middle setting), and have now upped it to the 4th setting. I do the regular and advanced moves, but I do tend to rush through it a bit, and sometimes don't do all the reps and it takes me about 10 minutes.
I wasn't expecting miracles, but I was pleasantly surprised. Just in the last week my jawline has become more pronounced, the skin around my neck has tightened, my eyes are more lifted, my cheekbones are a bit more firm and pronounced, and my skin tone has improved. Just this morning I used the ELE attachment and afterward when I was wiping off the gel my face felt so toned and had less slack, and I looked really good.
Now I must say I'm not a huge fan of the gel, I wish there was a serum I could slather on and then work into my skin after treatment. Sometimes I have some redness in spots, and I thought maybe it was a reaction to the gel, but it goes away after 5 minutes.
- Apply gel as you go to the area you are working... as long as there is enough gel and it's moist you're good... if it starts drying out it's harder to move the Trinity over the area and I notice the "tingle" a bit more. And yes, this is electrical current (someone else commented they felt the tingle and then realized what was happening and returned it... Um, what did you think the Trinity was???)
- If my gel starts to dry out I'll mist it with Evian Mister and continue.
- Read the directions and follow them... placement of the diodes and how you use them matters. Go online and watching the videos helps too.
- Use both attachments... Since the 'ball' attachment works all over the face and neck and the ELE is for specific areas around the lips and eyes, I like to use both, each on different days. They both give me similar results but in dfferent ways. I'll continue to use the ball attachment 3-4x a week and the ELE attachment 1-2x per week.
- Hello! Don't press too hard when going under the eye! I've seen people talk about dark circles, etc. after using the ELE attachment... the eye area has thin skin and you should only apply light pressure, especially when working inside the orbital bone area. I haven't had any problems with darkness or dark circles.
You should see results... depending on your starting point will determine how 'dramatic'... If you're in your 20's, or you've regularly gotten facials with this type of device, or you've had cosmetic procedures it may not be as dramatic, but it will help to maintain and enhance the results you already have. If you haven't had anything done or haven't taken preventative measures you WILL see a difference with a little time and proper usage.
I was so excited to receive this. Started using it and I can't deal with the little weird jolts I receive using the product and the primer gell. Had me thinking about exactly what the current was doing. Very disappointed
This was on advanced order and I just received this week. I have used Nuface Trinity now three times. The fine lines on my forehead are disappearing. I can't wait to see the progress after one month!
Just stopped working
I purchased this when it was a TSV. I used it as directed and had to purchase special aloe vera gel because their gel was causing me an allergic reaction. After spending much time and effort to replace gel and also to use everyday, the device just stopped working. I was very disappointed and at that time QVC did not have anymore of this item available. So back it went and ended up costing me substantial money for the gel that I no longer need. A very frustrating situation!
Not sure yet
I had Ultherapy in October & have seen great results so far. Bought this unit for maintenance especially interested in the ELE attachment for my eye lids since the Ultherapy could not directly treat that area as this device could. unfortunately that attachment did not work. The regular ball attachment did work & felt similar to the professional Ultherapy treatment. Much less painful than the professional treatment I'm on the fence as to send it back or exchange hoping to get a working attachment
My NuFace came yesterday and I tried it for the first time this afternoon. First I did the right side of my face since it drooped the most. After following the instructions (gliding it 3 times) WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I smiled into the mirror and actually saw a difference...my cheekbone really stood out. Also my eyelid was actually less saggy. I'll have to remember to take a picture of my "before". Tomorrow I'll use the lip and eye attachment and that should make a bigger difference. I can't wait to see what I look like after a week or two of using it. The wrinkles on my cheeks (when smiling) were less pronounced too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used the product for less than two weeks and developed itchy red bumps. Thought it might be a veracious spider or bug bite so discontinued use for a few days till the bumps started to go away. As soon as I used the product again got even more red itchy bumps so I sent it back. Have no idea if it actually would have toned facial muscles.
