Win a techno beauty breakthrough – Slendertone Face will give you a natural face lift using your own muscles
There is now an alternative solution for those looking for a natural facelift without resorting to the needle or the knife, thanks to a techno beauty breakthrough called Slendertone Face. The at-home device gives facial muscles a thorough workout by employing electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) to firm up the facial muscles and so flesh out ageing skin, while activating blood flow to encourage a healthy glow. The device can also be used to provide a reviving facial massage to help you feel fresher faced at the end of a long stressful day.
Sarcopenia is the medical term used to describe the naturally atrophy or ‘wasting’ of the muscles from the age of 30. Thinning muscles lose their elasticity and are no longer able to support the overlaying skin, this facial muscle wastage results in sagging, hollowing and creasing of the skin.
Those in the know are giving facial muscles a thorough workout with Slendertone Face. Looking somewhat like a hi-tech headset, this at-home device uses pioneering electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, which sends pulses to the facial nerves to activate the body’s natural muscle movement. This can achieve a natural, non-surgical face lift from the inside by helping to restore its natural shape and youthful radiance thanks to a no-work workout for twelve weeks. Slendertone Face plumps up the muscles, smoothes the overlying skin and reverses typical signs of ageing including loss of volume. Users will start noticing the difference in their complexion after two weeks and the gentle lifting effect after six weeks. The remaining six weeks completes the full exercise programme. After this initial period, a maintenance programme is then recommended to sustain the optimum muscle condition.
Slendertone Face comes from the same stable as the highly successful Slendertone Abs product which revolutionised the way people were able to tone up with minimal effort at home. A clinical trial was conducted to prove Slendertone Face works. Ultrasound measurements of 97 women between the ages of 35 and 55, showed an average increase in facial muscle thickness of 18.6% of the Zygomatic Major muscle (one of the largest facial muscles running from the cheekbone to the upper lip and sometimes referred to as the smile muscle). In contrast, the control group showed a small, insignificant decrease in muscle thickness over the course of the 12 weeks.
Facialist Nichola Joss is a firm advocate: “Slendertone Face gently stimulates the underlying facial muscles to their improve tone and texture. By using this for twenty minutes a day, five days a week can make a real difference. There’s minimal effort, you can stick on the headset while watching TV or reading and tuck the portable controller in a pocket. The use of Slendertone Face in the evening on its ‘radiance’ setting will help to make the skin look more luminous and revitalised by increasing the blood flow to the face, so you will be able to improve the appearance of facial contours and make the skin look and feel alive, radiant and glowing.”
Slendertone Face stockists include Boots, Slendertone.com, Harrods and Very. There is even a special edition Slendertone Face by haute couture milliner Philip Treacy which is available from Harrods & Slendertone.com.
