Today, we are breaking down how microcurrent really works to tighten your skin. It’s actually very simple and you won’t even feel a thing.
We’re answering the top 10 questions about microcurrent to help you better understand what your facial muscles are doing, how your skin will look, and what to expect. Let’s jump right in and get started.
- What is microcurrent?
Microcurrent is basically a facial stimulating beauty treatment that tones facial muscles, helps reduce the appearance of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, and ultimately lifts the skin upward. It’s a non-surgical facial-lift.
It increases circulation so the outer appearance that we see looks smoother, brighter, and more defined. The NuFACE Trinity and NuFACE mini, both FDA-cleared for facial stimulation, deliver a precise amount of microcurrent to the face that will contour, tone, and lift your skin.
- How do you use it?
It’s really simple to use. Make sure you have a clean face and be sure to use an oil-free cleanser as oil can block the microcurrent. You can also use our Prep-N-Glow cleansing cloths which cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate while removing any makeup or dirt from your face.
Using the Trinity or mini microcurrent devices are really easy. Start with a generous amount of gel primer so that the section you’re lifting appears wet. The gel primer is critical to pass the microcurrent through your skin and to your facial muscles.
Once gel’d up simply place both spheres flat against your skin and glide slowly using an upward motion. Make sure your glides are slow and long. There’s also a timed beep that will help you know when to move to the next section.
Here is a look at our 5-minute facial lift treatment video.
But simply put, Gel Up, Lift Up, and you Can’t Mess It Up!
- How can I mix NuFACE into my current skincare regimen?
Just like your favorite scrub or mask, NuFACE can easily be added to your skincare routine. And a device this pretty should be featured on your countertop. 🙂 After cleansing your skin, treat yourself to a quick 5-minute facial lift in the morning or in the evening. We love applying serums before lifting, just make sure they’re oil-free. After the initial 60-day period we recommend maintaining your results with three treatments per week, completely manageable!
- What will I feel when using my Trinity or mini?
Not kidding when we say this, you won’t feel anything during the treatment. It’s passing the current through the gel to your facial muscles. If you do feel a little tingling, add a bit more gel or spray the Optimizing Mist.
- What age should I start using microcurrent?
NuFACE is a great preventative measure in your 20’s and 30’s, plus it helps to lift your brows, define your cheekbones, and tighten your jawline. If you are in your 40’s and up it’s THE BEST anti-aging beauty tool. Makeup cannot give you these results. You will see wrinkle reduction, improved skin tone, added contour and firmness. What’s not to love about amazing rejuvenated skin?
- How is microcurrent going to help with anti-aging?
Just like exercise sculpts and tones the body, microcurrent contours and tones the face. And like exercise, the benefits are visible and the results are long-lasting with continued use. NuFACE is Fitness for Your Face™, the easiest workout you’ll ever do!
How? Your NuFACE device sends a soft electrical current through the skin and tissue to the facial muscles. That stimulation tells your body to create more collagen and elastin, which are structural proteins – they help keep our skin where it belongs, ladies! You get improved skin tone because all of this does wonders for circulation. Plus, contoured jowls and cheekbones, lifted eyebrows, and reduced fine lines and wrinkles. With regular use your muscle memory kicks in and these results stay put.
7.Is it safe?
Yes, NuFACE microcurrent treatments are very safe and pain-free. In fact, you shouldn’t even feel anything! Our devices are FDA-cleared and gently stimulates the body’s natural current. So it’s really your body doing all the work – your facial muscles get tighter and you’ll stimulate your body to produce more collagen, naturally.
8.What type of results will I see and how quickly will I see them?
You can usually see results after the first 5-minute treatment. Take a photo before, then lift half your face, take a photo to compare sides, and then take a photo at the end – you’ll be amazed! You may even notice your eyebrow is lifted, cheekbone is more defined, jaw line is tighter and your skin may be firmer overall. With regular use, 5-minutes a day, 5 days a week for 60 days you will see optimal results.

- What areas can you treat with Microcurrent?
NuFACE is FDA-cleared for facial stimulation on the face. From forehead to jowls you can use the NuFACE Trinity or mini devices.
The Facial Trainer (two spheres) comes with the Trinity and mini devices, which treats the larger area surfaces such as the forehead, cheeks, and jowls.
The Trinity is a multi-solution device so you can interchange the attachments based on the concern. The ELE attachment gets those hard to reach areas like crow’s feet, elevens (between the brows), arch of the brow, smile lines and around the eyes. This attachment helps to reduce wrinkles and tighten up muscles in those precise areas.
You can also use the Wrinkle Reducer attachment with the Trinity, making it very versatile! This is a red and infrared light treatment that reduces fine lines and wrinkles. We love mixing microcurrent and red light treatments for maximum results.
- I do not feel anything when using a NuFACE device. Is that normal?
100%! If you are not feeling anything that means you are using the device correctly.
The device will not vibrate or contract the muscles, it’s a low-level current that goes through the gel primer to the facial muscles, therefore you won’t feel a thing.
There you have it! The top 10 microcurrent questions, answered. Super easy, right? It only takes 5-minutes to contour, tone and reduce wrinkles in the comfort of your own home, while you travel, or even on the airplane! You can basically lift anywhere.
