Donning the latest apparels, flaunting the newest makeup trends, and elevating our fashion game; it seems everything stops in its path as soon as we look at our reflection in the mirror and see that who must not-be-named: Grey hair!
A reminder that we are aging and the fashion we flaunt today, might not remain forever is a needed reality check. Yet, while we can turn our grey hair into streaks and accumulate them into our fashion trends, it seems we don’t have the same luck with other signs of aging.
Aging and Our Woes
As we continue to grow in age, our facial skin takes a toll. The protein responsible for skin elasticity – Collagen – reduces, and our face loses facial fat. In fact, after reaching the age of 20, it is thought that the Collagen production continues to reduce by 1% each year.
What happens then?
- Sagging Skin
- Crow’s Feet
- Fine Lines
Thus, the signs of aging don’t appear on our face because of something we do. They simply occur because it is a natural phenomenon and is bound to happen.
How then, do we stop such signs from occurring?
Tried and tested – but failed
How many times has it been, that we went to the nearest superstore and tried to find the best anti-aging cream for ourselves?
Or for many of us, we did go one step further to opt for procedures like chemical peels, Botox, injectables and other fillers – only to bring back our once youthful-looking skin.
But did it work?
It might have, for a little while. But let’s face it; the surgeries cost too much, come with risks attached and an average Botox or filler session costs $500-$800 per session, may cause bruising and swelling, and the results begin to wear off only in about 5 months’ time.
If you were not developing any forehead lines before; you probably will now due to the stress caused by costly cosmetic treatments.
Fortunately, there is one way to stop such aging in its tracks, and no, it does not involve invasive needles nor needs you to go under the knife
Work your facial muscles.
No, we are not joking. Our facial muscles are key to our skin standing taut and smooth thus it only makes sense that they should be used when the skin appears to age.
Let’s consider our facial structure for a moment:
There are skin muscles. They have pads of fat above them, and then a skin covering; the skin we see on our face. As we age, the fat pads become thinner and thinner, until they slide away, giving your facial skin a saggy look. Almost as if your face had “fallen”.
However, as soon as you begin to workout your facial muscles via small exercises, the tables turn. The muscle becomes bigger, the fat pad firmer, and thus your facial skin taut and smooth.
Don’t believe us? A JAMA Dermatology published study proves it!
A Northwestern Medicine study, the research included 27 women aged between 40 and 65 years. They were given a predesigned 30-minute facial workout to perform every/alternate day. This include simple exercises like the Cheek Lifter, etc.
At the end of 20 weeks, 16 women had performed all exercises to the dot, and, hear this:
Their cheeks were fuller, their face toned, and they looked younger – about three years younger precisely!
But really, considering 16 out of the 27 women performed all exercises, how can we be sure that we will really put in the effort everyday to workout our face for a youthful glow?
Simple: opt for an EMS-powered device like the TUA Face Fitness (TFF); a mini workout machine for your face.
What is Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)?
Do you remember Slendertone, of the 90’s? The magical belt that toned your physique to give it better shape and structure?
Well, consider Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology as a similar phenomenon, only, applied on the face – it results in toned face and a non-invasive facelift!
So, how does EMS work?
Your face has a bed of facial muscles underneath. The technology sends low intensity, faradic currents into the skin which help the muscles contract rhythmically. As the muscles continue to contract and relax, it is like exercise for your face – and the motion tones your face.
But if this is EMS, what is the popular Microcurrent treatment?
A famous term in the cosmetic world, Microcurrent treatment is another way of sending currents into the face.
There is a thin line between EMS and Microcurrent.
EMS goes deep within the facial muscles to work them better, while microcurrent, though effective for smaller areas of the face, remains working the surface.
What should we choose then? EMS or Microcurrent electrotherapy?
Fortunately, we can get the best of both worlds with the TFF device; the revolutionizing face lift device!
Like a workout – only without all the effort.
If you ever wished for a rejuvenating facial massage; the TFF is the answer to your wishes.
It comes equipped with wand/s that can be placed on the facial area of desire. Microcurrents of your chosen intensity are then passed through, allowing the EMS therapy to contract the muscles in a synchronous rhythm to build and expand the tissue fibers within. This helps to dramatically increase blood circulation and ATP (adenosine triphosphate), induces fibroblast activity for collagen synthesis to promote collagen and elastin (by 35%!).
While the microcurrent helps workout smaller areas like cheekbone, jowls, forehead, chin, and undereye (the 5 regions for the TUA device), the EMS allows the electric current to run deep through the muscles to result in long-lasting and nearly painless effects!
I choose TFF.
Equipped with the latest technologies, the TFF device is a breath of fresh air in a world run over by surgical cosmetic treatments.
Giving you quicker and long-lasting results, you can expect your double chin to be less prominent, cheeks to appear fuller, and your face given a beautiful lifted, toned structure.
Let’s skip invasive methods and go natural instead, because what can be more trustworthy than our own muscles?
