In honor of Women’s Equality Day, here’s our Q&A with one of the leading skincare devices, NuFACE!
Is NuFACE safe for sensitive skin?
Yes, NuFACE microcurrent devices can be used with all skin types.
How does the microcurrent technology work?
As we age, our body’s natural current begins to slow (like our metabolism) leading to fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of contour. Microcurrent is a low-level, soothing current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide instant and cumulative results. It is used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a safe and effective technology for clients who wish to attain and maintain a healthier, younger looking appearance. The results can be so dramatic that microcurrent therapy treatments are often referred to as the “5 Minute Facial Lift”
What are the benefits of the devices for the skin?
Microcurrent benefits include firming, toning and lifting of the skin with instant and cumulative results.
Is it a women-founded brand?
Yes. Carol Cole and her daughters, Tera Peterson and Kim Morales, created NuFACE out of their home in Encinitas, CA. Carol, a licensed aesthetician, began her career in 1985 at the famed Golden Door destination spa in Escondido, CA. While administering treatments, she heard common anti-aging concerns from her clients such as sagging eyelids, loss of contour and simply “tired of looking tired”. With this knowledge in hand, Carol started specializing in microcurrent facials and traveled weekly to Los Angeles to serve the most discerning clients in Hollywood. She soon recognized her clients’ need for more frequent microcurrent treatments so in 2005, Carol and her daughters (Tera – also an aesthetician), launched NuFACE for their clients to use at-home in between their professional microcurrent facials. Clients started telling their friends about NuFACE and those friends told their friends and quickly NuFACE became a cult beauty favorite!
How important are beauty devices in a skincare regimen?
Your skincare routine can be robust, but when you’re missing devices you’re not targeting the levels that truly transform your skin. Microcurrent devices and skincare treat your skin at every level.
“As clients continue to invest in a healthy lifestyle, I envision skincare and specifically devices becoming a bigger focus in their holistic approach to wellness.” – quote from Tera Peterson, CEO + Cofounder
