NuFace MicroCurrent Skin Toning Device:

Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly will I see results?
You will see the results with NuFace after the first treatment.

How long do these results last?
The treatments are cumulative. One NuFace treatment should last approximately 18-72 hours.

How often is the NuFace treatment recommended?
NuFace may be safely used ONCE a day. Any more often than once in a 24 hour period is not recommended as the muscles need rest time between treatments.

How much current should I feel?
Facial sensitivity varies from individual to individual. You can lower or raise the intensity during any segment by turning the thumbwheel up or down on the machine. You might feel a slight yet comfortable tingling as your facial tone comes into balance. The NuFace emits between 0 and 400 microamps.

How long does the treatment take?
The treatment takes roughly 5+ minutes.

What is the best time of day to use NuFace?
NuFace may be used at any time of day that fits your schedule.

Can NuFace be used wearing make-up or skin care products?
No. NuFace may only be used with a conductive liquid or gel, preferably the Derma-Gel included in the NuFace Kit. The Optimizing Mist is used post treatment as a finishing spray. Both products can be reordered through our website.

If I'm planning cosmetic surgery, can I use NuFace?
Yes. But most importantly ask and consult your surgeon and please follow your doctor's recommendations. NuFace can be used before surgery to enhance restoration and balance of the facial tone. NuFace may also be used after surgery to aid in reducing puffiness and maintain the work of the surgeon. NuFace may be used in conjunction with other facial treatments and injectables.

How do I know NuFace is working?
NuFace does not make noise, vibrate, rotate or beep. The green power indicator light will illuminate notifying you the NuFace is on and treatment is ready to begin. To ensure NuFace is working properly, turn NuFace on HIGH, without and conductivity mediums touch both probes to the cheek area. You will feel a tingling; your NuFace is working properly!

I have used other facial stimulators and they contract my muscles, NuFace is not?
NuFace® utilizes microcurrent. Microcurrent is a low level current. NuFace will NOT contract the muscles. In certain areas you may feel a slight tingling as the tone come into balance or if conductivity mediums begin to dry (reapply).

When will I see NuFace results?
Immediately, lift half your face and do a comparison of each side, you will notice a slight lift. Results are cumulative; each treatment builds upon the last.

When should I lift my face, in the morning or night? You may use NuFace once a day, at anytime that fits your schedule. NuFace acts as an extension of your daily skincare regimen.

Can I lift my face more then once a day?
We recommend lifting your face only ONCE a day. Remember, NuFace is restoring facial tone for long term results. Extend treatment time or incorporate the advanced technique for better results.

How fast should I be gliding the NuFace?
Take your time with the NuFace treatment; each step should be roughly a long 4 count (one- one thousand, two-one thousand, etc.)

What is included with the NuFace?
The NuFace kit includes the NuFace device, Optimizing Mist, Derma-Gel, 9 volt Battery (inserted) and one year warranty.

Is NuFace tested by skincare professionals?
Yes, and it is being recommended for homecare and used to enhance in-office treatments by skincare professionals including dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and estheticians.

Why is NuFace unique?
NuFace is the latest innovation in advanced skincare. The microcurrent technology works with the natural tone of the skin to provide instant lifting. The NuFace action is created by alternating positive and negative current delivered through probes to gently lift and tone the face while reducing fine lines and wrinkles within minutes.

How long will my battery last?
This depends on your amount of usage and brand of battery. Any 9-volt battery will work. Rechargeable batteries are not recommended.

Why do I have to stay out of the mouth and eye areas?
The mouth and eye area are circular muscles and need to be worked in circular motions. Due to the design of NuFace, it can not work those muscles properly and those muscles should be avoided.
