3rd Party Clinical Study
14 female subjects aged between 38 to 52 years
We picked 14 subjects to test electric stimulation of facial muscles. Our goal was to conclude if TFF PRO is able to improve the tone and appearance of the muscular and subcutaneous tissue.
3 times a week for three weeks (a total of 9 sessions per person), their facial muscles (orbicularis oculi, orbicularis oris and major zygomatic) were stimulated so as to obtain visible contraction. In the same sessions, contraction of the following muscles was performed:
– 5 min. each side right and left upper cheek areas
– 5 min. each side of right and left lower cheek and nasolabial fold areas
To ensure that the muscles were always stimulated in the same positions, the unit was applied to the muscles under medical control. The intensity was decided by each patient until she felt the stimulus and caused contraction which the doctor could see.
Ultrasound and photographs were taken right before and after each treatment.
ULTRASONOGRAPHIC – In an ultrasound test, the muscular tissue of a normal subject shows a uniform distribution of echoes at average intensity, with visible parallel striations which make up the muscles tertiary fasciae. The normal average thickness of the zygomatic muscle is 3.5mm.
PHOTOGRAPHIC – For accuracy, subject faces were positioned on a chin-rest and the camera tripod was firmly mounted on a table with the same distance and lighting throughout.
This test was able to state that the treatment of facial muscles with electric stimulation is safe and painless and even just three weeks, is able to improve the tone and appearance of the muscular and subcutaneous tissue. It can be expected that longer (or even continual) treatment, such as that which can be carried out at home, would have greater, longer lasting results, using effective painless stimulation to fight the regressive phenomena of the subcutaneous-muscular complex which in conclusion are to be blame for the anti-aesthetic “wrinkles”.
