Tone Your Face at Home with NuFACE

Tone Your Face at Home with NuFACE

Facial toning: it’s all the rage. That contoured, lifted look has never been more desired, with women all over the world pining for those shaped features and younger looking skin. Famed esthetician Carol Cole, the brainchild of NuFACE, noticed the desire for this, giving her the idea to create the NuFACE brand. She wanted to provide her celebrity and influential clients with a tool for anti-aging treatments which in the comfort of their own homes, they could easily take on themselves.


Understanding her client’s desires for a non-invasive, easy-to-use, anti-aging solution, Carol sought to develop a handheld device that would utilize microcurrent technology. With the help of her daughters Tera and Kimberly, Carol launched the first NuFACE device in 2005, which received an overwhelming response. If you are reading this and wondering how a little handheld device can make sure an impact on toning and anti-ageing, then read on! We’ve broken it down to provide you some information on how exactly how it all works (plus, they’ve just launched some super cute sets below!)


  • Founded by women, for women, NuFACE is focused on transforming the way patients approach skin care by delivering clinically proven, non-invasive devices for ideal skin health.
  • Made in the USA, FDA cleared and professionally recommended, NuFACE delivers innovative multi-solution products to consumers worldwide


  • The cult and best-selling product, the NuFACE Trinity®, is the first and only FDA-cleared, handheld multi-solution device.
  • It’s an award-winning device which improves facial contour, skin tone and wrinkle reduction. It’s also popular for being known as providing the “5-Minute Facial-lift,” where the NuFACE Trinity includes the Facial Trainer attachment which works in as little as 5-minutes a day.
  • It’s also designed with interchangeable treatment attachments, including the NuFACE Trinity Wrinkle Reducer and NuFACE Trinity ELE, allowing multiple skin therapies with one device.
  • The newest FDA-cleared device is the NuFACE® mini, featuring the same microcurrent technology in a petite, portable travel-friendly size, perfect for holidays or for first time users.
  • To sit alongside the NuFace mini and Trinity, there is also a complete range of primers, hydrators and anti-aging serums that feature breakthrough ingredients to complement the technologies.

It’s all down to the proven technology, ease-of-use and beautiful, visible results these devices provide which has created such a buzz around NuFace!

So now you understand what the NuFACE devices do, its time to get some extra tips for how to get the best results for your skin. To shine some expert insight on the topic, we caught up with the team at NuFACE to gather together some valuable pointers on getting the most out of using a NuFACE device…

  1. Keep Skin Hydrated
    Water is an excellent conductor of electricity, therefore hydrated skin is much more ideal for microcurrent treatments. To increase skin hydration, use water-based products and extreme hydrators pre-microcurrent treament. That includes drinking more water too!
  2. Optimize Performance
    To optimize your NuFACE treatment, use a product which refreshes and hydrates the skin, such as the NuFACE Optimizing Mist. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera, this hydrating spray is for both the face and body and can be used various times throughout the day.
  • Oil-Free, Clean Skin
    Oil cannot conduct an electric-current, therefore, any oil on the skin blocks the penetration of the microcurrent, preventing results from the NuFACE device. A solution to this is to use water based skincare. All skincare products prior to microcurrent should be both water-based and oil-free, removing any surface oil.
  • Use The Complementing Gel
    The NuFACE Gel Primer has been created to work hand-in-hand with the NuFACE device. It contains conductive polymers that help the microcurrent penetrate into the skin, aiding in the ease of glide during treatment. Although other skin care products may seem like viable replacements, they do not have conductive properties like the NuFACE gel primer, that delivers maximum results.

    When using the NuFACE Trinity device, the most popular treatment is the ‘5-Minute Facial-Lift’. This at-home technique is clinically-tested to improve facial contour, skin tone, and wrinkle reduction across the jawline, cheek area and forehead.  NuFACE recommend that for optimum results, the microcurrent treatment should be carried out 5 days a week for 60 days. After 60 days, they advise you to reduce to 3 days a week. We haven’t quite tried it out for ourselves (yet), but so far, we are pretty much sold on the idea!

    Incase you’re as interested as us in the NuFACE devices and giving yourself a 5-Minute Facial-Lift, we thought we would leave you with their expert video. The video teaches you the step-by-step routine how to professionally carry out the popular 5-minute facial-lift, so you can understand exactly how to do it!
