As we get older, sagging skin, loss of contour, and wrinkles start to affect our lives. With NuFACE Microcurrent, your skin will regain its natural current, giving your skin a boost of youthful energy and instantly reversing the signs of aging.

How it Works

NuFACE Microcurrent technology uses low-level ionic currents that mimic the body’s natural current. These low-level ionic currents stimulate protein synthesis and promote amino acid flow in the skin. It also encourages collagen and elastin proteins that supports your skin structure, retaining the firmness of the skin while contouring and smoothing. It’s basically a workout for your face!
