The anti aging facial that truly delivers [5 ways Microcurrent therapy devices turns back the clock]

The anti aging facial that truly delivers [5 ways Microcurrent therapy devices turns back the clock]

Want to know the only (top-notch) anti aging facial that I nowadays lay money and time on? Well, it is called microcurrent therapy, and has been a true game changer for my skin.

This kind of treatment works in so many ways. It lifts, it tones, it heals, it reduces acne. And is completely natural. Personally, I’ll never ever stop using microcurrent on my face!

This post will explain how this treatment can make your skin younger and healthier. And also, what microcurrent therapy devices I use myself.

This is what I will cover. And you can jump to any part of the post by clicking on the headlines below.

Let’s get started with teaching you all you need to know about this powerful anti aging facial.

What is microcurrent therapy?

Let’s briefly give you some background facts about this technology.

  • Microcurrent is a super low-level current that imitates our body’s own natural bio electrical activity. With microcurrent therapy, we can stimulate our skin cells and muscle cells. By sending these soft and very gentle currents down our tissues.
  • Microcurrent therapy is also known as MENS-therapy (microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation). But should not be confused with TENS-therapy (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). Microcurrent uses micro amperage current, which is a thousand times smaller than the milliamp that TENS uses.  
  • Microcurrent therapy can be used as anti aging facial treatments for stimulation of our facial muscles and rejuvenation of our skin. 
  • It can also be used for pain management and for injuries. And it has actually been used by medical doctors since the 1970s for pain relief as well as on patients with paralysis conditions in the face such as Bell’s palsy. 
  • True microcurrent does not feel anything or very little. And it should not cause any contraction of the muscle. It will still efficiently stimulate and re-educate the muscle to resume the plump appearance it once had. 
  • Microcurrent increases the stimulation of ATP (I’ll come back to this later) in the cells which in turn increases the synthesis of proteins. It also increases blood flow which leads to better exchange of oxygen, antioxidants, and other nutrients to the cells.  

Now let’s go over to what this anti aging facial can do for your skin and face long term. If you are consistent with it.

Microcurrent facial benefits – 5 ways it makes you younger

Microcurrent works in many different ways to improve and youthify your skin. And the major reason this is happening is due to the increased ATP concentration that microcurrent brings on. 

ATP (Adenosince 5’-triphospate)  is a molecule that stores and transfers energy in our cells. And is used for all cellular activities. 

Increased ATP concentration will in turn increase uptake of amino acids and synthesis of the skin building proteins collagen and protein. 

This increased ATP also energizes the facial muscles. In a similar way to how exercise energizes the muscles of our bodies. 

As we get older, the concentration of ATP begins to fall. Meaning the cells lose their full potential. This reduces the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the skin. As well as the energy within the muscle cell that is needed for them to remain firm and plump. 

With that short explanation of ATP. Let’s divide this section into 5 main outcomes of using microcurrent therapy as an anti aging facial treatment.

1) It restores volume in your face and reduces sagginess

We have 43 muscles in our faces and microcurrent stimulates and trains them. Which makes them stronger and fuller and will plump your face. This counteracts any volume loss you may experience.

In my two recent posts about nasolabial folds, jowls, and marionette lines, I talk a lot about how volume loss is the big cause of these matters. So if you are concerned about saggy skin, and the specific nasolabial folds, jowls and marionette lines that come with it. Then definitely give microcurrent a try. 

Something to also understand is that when it comes to your face, your skin is directly connected to the facial muscles. What this means is that stimulating and training your muscles will not just restore volume. But also lift and tighten your skin. As a sort of natural facelift.

2) It increases the production of collagen and elastin

As mentioned above, increased ATP will increase proteins in the cells. And for the skin cells, this means more collagen and elastin.

What this means is that with time, microcurrent improves the structure of your skin and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

3) It increases blood flow and improves lymphatic drainage

Just like a massage, microcurrent therapy will also increase blood flow and aid with lymphatic drainage. This will give you an instant and radiant glow and reduce puffiness. As well as improve your overall skin health by improving delivery of nutrients, antioxidants, and oxygen to your skin cells.

This helps even more with fighting the aging process and reducing the harm from free radicals that we are exposed to daily. 

3) It helps with healing the skin and to fight acne

Thanks to the increased delivery of oxygen and nutrients that microcurrent brings on. It also helps to speed up healing. 

And on top of that it helps to eliminate bad bacteria, both topically and internally. This is because the extra oxygen that is delivered to the skin cells, makes it more difficult for the acne causing bacteria to survive. 

5) It helps strengthen your ligaments.

I mentioned this in my previous post too when discussing saggy skin (nasolabial folds, jowls, and marionette lines). Because weakened ligaments are a contributing factor. 

Gladly, since microcurrent help with energizing all cells and has a positive effect on healing. It actually helps strengthen those ligaments and prevent further sagginess. 

There is also some studies indicating microcurrent might help with bone formation. This can be an extra bonus effect since strong facial bones are crucial for a face to look younger for longer. See my post about facial bone loss to learn more.


In short. By using microcurrent you will counteract saggy skin by restoring volume and tighten your skin. You will also increase the production of collagen and elastin for long term effects on wrinkles and fine lines. And on top of that, you get a radiant glow, less acne, and better skin health in general.

A bonus effect of using microcurrent on your skin is that it increases the uptake of any skincare serum you might use underneath the conductive gel.

Microcurrent therapy benefits as anti aging facial
Some of the benefits with using microcurrent therapy devices as an anti aging facial.

Microcurrent therapy devices at home or salon treatments?

Microcurrent treatment can be offered as a powerful anti aging facial at certain salons. But you also have the option to do home treatments by buying your own microcurrent therapy device.

Question is, which option is the best? And how are they different?

For me, personally, I just go with the home devices. Since I simply do not have any salons where I live that offer this kind of treatment. 

I do have three different microcurrent therapy devices that I alternate between. I will come back to that in the next section. And I would say they all provide effective anti aging facials and long term results if used regularly. 

Here are what I consider to be the pros and cons of using either microcurrent therapy devices on yourself. Or going to a salon or clinic for a professional anti aging facial with microcurrent. 

Salon treatments with microcurrent 

Pros

  • Stronger machines (usually) 
  • Many different programs (usually) 
  • Fast results

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Not available everywhere or at times that suit you
  • Hard to be consistent. And just as with training you have to be consistent for long term results.

Microcurrent therapy devices for home treatments

Pros

  • A lot less expensive than the salon treatments
  • Easy to use on yourself
  • Easy to be consistent
  • Gives great result especially over time
  • Available for everyone

Cons

  • Takes time and practice
  • Gels can be expensive and messy
  • Not as strong as the salon treatments so takes longer time to get results.

As I said I only use home devices myself. And I love how they make my skin tighter and more glowy. I also love the fact that they keep my production of collagen and elastin high since I can do the treatment regularly. 

Microcurrent therapy is the best anti aging facial I have ever tried.
Microcurrent is simply the best anti aging facial I’ve ever tried. And I cannot recommend it enough. In this post I explain why, as well as review the home devices I use myself.

Now if you happen to do have a salon in your area that gives this type of anti aging facial And that has good credentials. Then I would say go for both (if you can afford it).

Definitely have a home device for consistency and to have a steady increased concentration of ATP. But do a salon treatment every once in a while. 

Before you do go to any salon though. I truly recommend you research the therapist/doctor and reviews they are having. 

If you want to order your own microcurrent therapy device as I did. Then the next section will be all about the ones I use myself. 

What is the best microcurrent device? Nuface vs Myolift vs ZIIP

So let’s talk about specific microcurrent devices to use at home. And more precisely, the three devices that are most known and talked about. Nuface, Ziip, and Myolift mini. 

In short, I think they are all fantastic. And at the same time, they are all different. They all have at least one feature that I like so much that I cannot stop using it. In other words, yes I use them all. 

But since I do not do any salon treatments I decided to do the best I could with these instead.

I do not think you need all of them. But if you have certain issues that you want to address, some of them might be better than the others.

I will now explain about them each. What I like about them, how I use them, and what makes them unique in my opinion. That way you can decide for yourself which microcurrent device is best for you and your concerns. 

Tip: I have a separate post about the device Foreo Bear. It’s not on my top list of devices (I get no result from using it) so I have not included it here.


*Please note, this post contains affiliate links, and I may receive a small commission if you purchase through any of those links. It doesn’t cost you any extra and I only recommend products I truly love and use myself. You can read my full disclosure here.  


Nuface

This is the device I started with. Mostly because I had heard a lot of great things about it. It looked extremely easy to use. And since they offered a money-back guarantee for satisfaction. So I really had nothing to lose. 

And yes, I did notice an effect on firmness and glowiness right after the first treatment. I could feel this was good for my skin so I ordered their attachment called ELE shortly thereafter. 

Me using Nuface trinity microcurrent therapy device on my cheek muscles
My first microcurrent therapy device to try out was Nuface Trinity. It’s super easy to use and I noticed an instant firmness and glowiness from the first time.

The Nuface device itself is called Trinity and is small enough to be held in one hand. It has two quite large probes that you slide over your skin. And you can work with more advanced techniques too. Where you lift and hold the muscles with the probes (all explained in detail in Nuface instruction videos). 

The ELE attachment is meant to be used around the eyes and lip area. It has much smaller probes in order to target those small muscles very efficiently. 

It made a huge improvement in my under-eye puffiness and hooded eyes that I get very easily (If I have a bad night’s sleep my eyes will tell for days).

Tip: See my post about hooded eyes and saggy eyelids to learn more about these concerns and how to improve them.

If you are getting the Nuface, then definitely get the ELE attachement too.

Me using Nuface trinity plus ELE on the under eye area.
The nuface + its ELE attachment has made a huge improvement when it comes to the eye area.

I also like that Nuface Trinity is so easy to use. And that is a key to get microcurrent to work efficiently. You have to be consistent with it.

For those of you who wonder about the strenght, Nuface goes up to 335 microamps (and up to 200 micoramps with the ELE attachment).

So are there any negative things to say about Nuface? Well unfortunately my device stopped working after about a month. But there was no problem with getting a new one sent to me right away. And that one has worked perfectly.

The Nucafe is also limited to one program with one set of waveforms (frequency). So what does that mean?

Well, different shapes of the microcurrent waves will target different conditions. And I will explain this more when I talk about the other machines that offer programs with some other waveforms.

I would still, due to the immediate effects I am seeing on myself, recommend Nuface. I found it especially effective for plumping my cheeks (which you can read more about in this post), contouring my jawline, and improve my eye-areas.

AND again, their ELE attachment was such a game-changer for my eyes that I will just never stop using it. 

Where to buy it

For the best price and customer service (and of course with the money-back guarantee included), I recommend Dermstore. Which you find on this link.

If you live anywhere in Europe I recommend a store called Cultbeauty. And you find them on this link. They are super fast with shipping and they also give you free shipping in the whole of Europe. And of course, with Nuface money-back guarantee included.

ZIIP

ZIIP was the second microcurrent device I bought. And I was curious because it was said to have a lot of different programs (with different waveforms). All for different concerns. Such as pigmentation, acne, and a program solely for lymphatic drainage. 

Besides the different waveforms, ZIIP goes up to 400 microamps in strenght (depending on program).

ZIIP also mixes their microcurrent with nanocurrent. Which they mean are even more effective in creating ATP and give long-term results. I could not find any real proof of that when it comes to studies, but I still got interested in this device. 

Me using ziip microcurrent therapy device
Me working on the lymph and lift program with my Ziip beauty device.

The device is small, smaller than the Nuface, and can easily be held by one hand. It also looks and feels a lot more exclusive.

The golden gel that comes with it is amazing! I actually love it so much that I use it with my Nuface device as well (see my post about conductive gels to learn more).

The different programs are fun to try and easy to change with the help of their app that you connect to your device. Very high-tech, yet simple.

So how effective is it? Well, I think I am falling in love with my ZIIP more and more. There are especially three programs I love extremely much. So much that I cannot imagine a life without this device.

The first is a program that targets acne, and all kinds of impurities. And since I used to get some kind of acne every once in a while (due to something I ate or had on my skin). Especially during that time of the month. This program was a life-changer.  Because I rarely just got a small pimple. I usually got a cystic one that took forever to heal. (see this post to learn about how to treat cystic acne).

By using this program with my ZIIP, it speeds everything up and sometimes as fast as 24 hours. That is incredible! Since I get stubborn red marks very easily from acne, this is a keeper for me. It has saved my skin a lot. 

The second program I truly love is their Lymph and Lift programme. It is using waveforms that specifically targets the lymphatic drainage. And even though all microcurrent aids with this process. This program uses waveforms extremely effective for this concern. And works great for any puffiness from bad sleep etc.

I love this program so much that I use it every second day. It makes my skin so tight and smooth! And if I have had a bad night’s sleep it sure improves the way my face looks by reducing puffiness.

There is also a third program I alternate with. And that is specifically targeting sensitive skin with a very healing effect. I usually use it after the lymph program for some extra ATP-production, and to soothe my sensitive skin. I think I get an amazing glow from it and I also notice my skin gets even more firm after these two combined. 

The sensitive program is also the only treatment that can work even on a damaged skin barrier (if it’s not too severe). And will help speed up the healing process.

They have so many other programs. For example “Vital-eyes” that targets the eye area (or lips if you want to plump those). Or the “Instant gratification” that is 4 a minute pick-me-up treatment and very effective for sculpting and for working on jowls (see my post about jowls to learn more) And a lot more.

What is also interesting with the ZIIP is that the company keeps creating new programs and the app will continue to be updated.

One downside with the device that is worth mentioning is that you have to be careful because it can get very slippery. And can break easily too. This has happened to me as I dropped it a few times too much on the floor. I can still use it thankfully. But be careful with it!

Close up on ziip microcurrent therapy device
Here is a close up of my amazing ZIIP nano- and microcurrent therapy device. I have dropped it too many times which you might see. Be careful because this little thing is your skin’s best friend.

Update: I have now been using my ZIIP (and explored the different programs) even more. And I now use it more often than I use any of the other devices. Simply because I love how it makes my face look and feel.

My new post ZIIP vs Nuface will explain about the ZIIP in more detail. And give a more detailed comparison of these two.


The ZIIP is a bit more expensive than the other two. I personally think it’s worth the extra cost due to all the different programs and waveforms that you get with it. It just does so much for your skin.

Also, I have a ZIIP discount code for 20 percent (ann20). Which is almost $100 off. This link will take you there (make sure to use my code ann20 to get the discount), but they only ship within the USA.

If you live in Europe I recommend Cultbeauty on this link (no discount code, unfortunately) for free and fast shipping. You will also get a 10 % off your first order.

Myolift mini

This is my latest and most advanced microcurrent therapy device. And it is as close to a professional one you can come, in your own home.

Myolift mini microcurrent therapy device
Myolift mini microcurrent therapy device

Myolift mini has two handles with two probes on each. Making it possible to pinch any muscles of your face and hold for very targeted microcurrent treatment.

This device also comes in two different programs. One is for educating/training your muscles. And the other one is actually for relaxing them. Since some muscles can be very tense and therefore benefit from this type of stretch. The company means that lines that are occurring from tense muscles can be improved with this “erase program”.

Myolift mini is also adjustable with the intensity. From 175 microampere all the way up to 400 microampere.

A downside with myolift is that it takes some time to learn the technique. But there are plenty of youtube videos for that.

It is also much larger than the other two and needs your both hands to perform a treatment. Personally, I think it’s fun, but I understand not everyone finds the same amusement of having to deal with the long cords and messy probes. 

If you are going to buy Myolift mini do understand it takes an initial investment in time to learn how to do this treatment efficiently. You find more info about Myolift on this link.

Tip: See my post about microcurrent conductive gels to learn more about why you need a conductive gel. And which ones I use personally.

Summary – why microcurrent is the best anti aging facial I’ve ever tried

So here is the short recap of what this post is all about. I personally find that microcurrent therapy is the most exciting anti aging facial out there. Because it does so much to your skin. And you can see an improvement even after the first treatment. 

Some of the most important benefits of using this kind of anti aging facial is this:

  • Microcurrent enhances cellular activity (by increasing ATP). This in turn leads to increased production of both collagen and elastin. Making the skin firmer and smoother.
  • Microcurrent stimulates and trains your muscles to restore volume and plumpness. Which in turn tightens your skin and prevents/reduces sagginess of your skin. 
  • Microcurrent improves circulation and skin health in general. And gives a radiant glow thanks to the improved blood flow.
  • Microcurrent improves delivery of oxygen and important nutrients and antioxidants to the skin cells. Which reduces the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
  • Microcurrent helps fight acne bacteria due to the extra oxygen that it delivers to the cells.

You can either find a good salon in your area that provides this kind of treatment. Or you can do what I did. Buy your own microcurrent therapy devices and use them on yourself in the comfort of your home.

I have the Nuface trinity (with ELE attachment), the ZIIP, and the Myolift mini. And I love them all even if there are pros and cons to all of them.

I suggest you start with the Nuface or ZIIP if you are all new to this kind of treatment. Since I find those devices to be the most simple ones to use.

You also get a money-back guarantee with The Nuface so you can try it out risk-free. This is something the other microcurrent therapy devices don’t offer. With ZIIP on the other hand, you get a discount of 20 % if you use my code (ann20).


I think Microcurrent therapy is an amazing treatment. And a much much better and safer option to stay youthful, than using the fictitious botox and fillers. Microcurrent makes your skin younger in so many ways. Simply by giving the cells what they need to do the work.

Just remember to be consistent with your treatments, since it takes time to retrain muscles and build collagen and elastin. See it as going to the gym. The best result will come over time.

Hope you liked this post! And as always, let me know in the comments if you have any questions regarding this topic or the specific microcurrent therapy devices I use. And if you’ve tried this treatment already, please share your experience 🙂

Until next time, love your skin!

    Hi Ann
    I am looking at the ZIIP with the gel you recommend, this is the best device with the app for damaged barrier? As I am using entirely your regime for fixing my barrier and just started.
    How often is ZIIP recommended a week to use and when do you think you could notice results maybe 6 months? Thanks!
    Once I can calm and heal my skin further I am interested in a consult most likely!

    1. Ann

      Hi Steph! Yes, this is indeed the best device to speed up healing. I suggest you start with only doing the sensitive program. Which they just last week re-named to Nano program since it only uses nanocurrent. I also suggest you go with the gel called Crystal Gel. I just tried it for the first time a few days ago and I am blown away and must say this one is even better than the golden gel. It is also cheaper. I will write a separate blog post about it very soon 🙂

      I would suggest you start with 2-3 times a week for a few weeks with just the nanocurrent. And see how your skin reacts to it. If you feel it works well you can add more programs to it. I think you will see results quickly, but the best results will come after a few months 🙂

    Hi Ann,

    Thank you for the great reviews.

    I am looking to buy a microcurrent device.
    What do you think of the Myolift Qt (or GT) or using the gloves with microcurrent.
    Not sure if I saw an article on your site mentioning either?

    1. Ann

      Hi Angie, and thank you! 🙂 Nope, I have not tried the QT myself. But have used the gloves with my myolift mini though 🙂 I like them, and it is great that you can connect the gloves with the QT and still get the pinch and hold function with that device too. But since I haven’t tried that particular device myself I cannot say if I recommend it or not. I do like my myolift mini 🙂

      The good thing with the gloves is that you get larger areas treated at the same time (more atp). But the intensity will be lower since the current is more spread. While with the probes, the current is stronger since it gets more concentrated. That can give you a more powerful lifting effect on the particular muscles you are working on.

      Also, I personally use my ZIIP more often since it has more programs (and is quicker to use). And more use gives me more ATP (just remember to take a day off at least once per week). So that is something to consider too. But both are great devices when used regularly!

      Hope this helps a little, let me know if you have more questions 🙂

    Hi Ann,

    I can not decide. After a week of reading everything. Hooded eyes and marionette lines and late 30’s. I don’t mind spending the time and I like learning new gadgets. But I do not want to buy 2 things. Which performs better (forgetting the complexity etc) for eyes and marionette lines? Do I get myolift or nu face. Im going crazy trying to decide :))

    Thank you!!

    1. Ann

      I understand you! Since the myolift is a bit more powerful and you can target some muscles even more efficiently, I think that is the best choice for marionette lines. If you put in the extra time and effort that it requires. For hooded eyes I have found both the ziip and the Nuface with ELE to be even more effective though. But I know that is not what you want to hear. I think myolift is a great option for these concerns as well so you are fine either way 🙂

  4. Marta

    Hi I’m really torn between myolift and nuface. I’m 43 and have very visible basil animal folds and 11/ frown lines on my forehead. My jaw is dropping slightly too ….
    please advise me which one is better for me .

    Thanks a million

    Marta

    1. Ann

      Hi Marta!

      If you have the time then I suggest you try Myolift mini since it is stronger and can target some of the muscles even better with its probes. But it does take time to learn and to get the techniques right.

      The nuface is much simpler to learn and to use and can give great results as well. And for the eye area I actually recommend nuface (with ELE attachement) over myolift since it can target those small muscles better.

      Also, the myolift has a program targeting lines such as elevens so that can be an advantage för that device.

      Let me know if you have more questions ?.

  5. Kourtney

    just ordered a Nuface MINI with Ulta points i had saved up. I’m only in my 20s but have hooded eyes. I was also thinking about ordering the Nuface Fix- have you tried that or have a post on it?

    Thanks for all this info! it’s great for beginners like me 🙂

    1. Ann

      Hi Kourntey, and thank you so much 🙂
      For hooded eyes though, you really need the trinity with ELE attachement in order to get the best result. The mini is for the large muscles. Even though it may have some effect on the muscles that lifts the eyelid,the ELE a is so much more suited for this. Since the probes are smaller. And to get the ELE you need the trinity (in order to change attachement)

      About The Fix, I have tried it yes. And it did nothing for me. It works very superficially, mostly to increase absorbtion of the serum that come along. Which can have a temporary effect on fine lines and wrinkles. But I don’t have that. And I couldnt tolerate the serum as well.
      Great question 🙂

  6. Michelle

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for the 99$ discount code for ziip! I’ve been wanting this device for a while and your code gave me the extra push!

    1. Ann

      You’re very welcome Michelle! So happy for you, you will love it! 🙂

  7. May

    Hi Ann, great post as am considering whether to get the nuface pro. Question: did you experience any side effects?

    1. Ann

      No side effects at all ??. That is what I like with microcurrent. But my first device did stop working. The company sent me a new one and this one has worked perfect ?

  8. fatima

    Really good and solid information in this blog.
    Congratulations, it’s really good 🙂

    I’m wondering if it’s possible that microcurrent has a negative impact.
    I’ve been using Nuface for about 3 months, 6 times per week and I don’t know if it’s the fact that I became more aware and paying more attention to my face, but it seems that my nasolabial folds are more visible now 🙁

    Do you think this is possible?

    1. Ann

      Thank you so much for you comment Fatima ??.

      About your nasolabial folds, no it should not be possible for microcurrent to make them more noticable. On the contrary, you should see an improvement during this time that you have been using the device. May I ask if you have lost any weight during this period? Or any medications you have started taking?

      Also, have you tried the advance techniques with the nuface? I found those to be the best ?

      1. Fatima

        I haven’t lost any weight or started
        any medication. Yes I do the advanced techniques but I use the mini Nuface. The amount of microcurrent is the same as the Trinity so I don’t this is the problem. I forgot to tell you that the fold is worst only in one side.

        The only thing that I remember is a change in my sleep position. I switched sides and is on the side of my face that now suffers the pressure that the fold is more visible. (I’m trying to sleep on my back but is not easy ?).

        At about the same time I started to chew almost always on the opposite side. I don’t think that the fact that chewing can help to mantain a more robust muscle can prevent the sagging in the skin…but maybe could affect a little bit, I guess. Maybe this two factors combined created the problem.

        Do you think this could make any sense?

        Thank you so much for your help Ann ?

        1. Ann

          Hi Fatima!

          Yes, sleeping position is affecting the nasolabial folds a lot! These folds are not caused by sagging skin. But by pressing the skin into a fold, causing a deep line. And as you explain, it will only cause the side you sleep on.

          I know it is hard to train to become a back sleeper. My best suggestion is to actually switch your pillow. I have found personally that a regular non-feather pillow is the best for me. To keep me on my back. But this is very personal. I urge you to keep trying until you find a pillow that suits you. It will save your skin (nasolabial folds).

          I used another pillow than my regular one during my vacation this summer. And it got me lines. Those disappeared after getting my regular pillow.

          Also, keep doing the microcurrent since that will help with collagen and elastin over time to help smooth out the line that is already present.

          About chewing, yes it does affect the muscles and helps to keep them strong 🙂 It mostly affects the jaw muscles, while smiling affects the cheek muscles. So keep doing both. And try to chew on both sides.

          Let me know how it goes 🙂

  9. Lindsey

    Your skin looks amazing!! I’ve been looking to invest in one of these devices. Your post is so informative. Thanks so much. Because you own all three, how often do you use each? Do you use them all on different days? Do they cancel each other’s effect? Sorry for all the questions but you seem so knowledgeable and you must know what you’re doing because you look gorgeous.
    Thanks so much!

    1. Ann

      Thank you so much for your comment Lindsey! 🙂 Happy to clarify how and how often I use them 🙂

      It actually depends and I have no strict routine. But I use Nuface and Ziip a lot more often than Myolift. Since these two are so much easier and faster to use (like anywhere from a few minutes to a 20 min treatment)

      I love the Ziip’s lymph program so much that I use it at least every second day (it takes only 7 minutes). Either by itself or at the same time as I use any of the others. I also use Nuface eye attachment (ELE) at least every second day because that one is also amazing for the eye area. And takes only a few minutes as well.

      I use the Nuface with its regular attachment quite often too. Usually every second day as well. And I work all my entire face and neck with it. I like to spend a bit more time with that one.

      I use myolift once a week or every 10 days. And that day I do not use the Nuface. Myolift takes longer time.

      I also do my treatments in the morning. Since I like the extra glow they give me throughout the day 🙂

      So yes, I combine them. Especially ziip and nuface. And I use them in the same session (except for myolift). They do not cancel each other’s out. Rather the opposite 🙂

      Also, I always make sure to have at least one day of the week free from any microcurrent.

      I have also recently started to spray on thermal water for extra conductivity, while I’m doing the treatments. Then I do not need as much gel. The thermal spring water has lots of minerals that enhance conductivity. So just a tip 🙂

      Hope this helps and happy to answer any more questions! 🙂

      Thanks again for your sweet comments!

    Very interesting. I don’t think this is right for me because I am very lazy with my beauty routine but will mention it to my friends.

    I’ve never heard of this before. I’m going to look into this more. I’ve just started prioritizing my skin about 6-8 months ago and it’s amazing the changes I’ve seen. Will need to learn about this too. Your skin looks great!

      Glad to hear that Sofia! I am just the same 🙂 You will love microcurrent if you give it a try. Since it is completely natural and effective at the same time.
