NuFACE Sr. Brand Educator, Rachel Vicknair, answered questions on microcurrent therapy, NuFACE products and how NuFACE can help your skin. Here's a recap of of the questions and Rachel's answers.Q: Is the NuFACE range for all skin types? And what age group? Also I struggle with fine lines and dark circles under my eyes, could this range help?
A: Yes, NuFACE is for all skin types. I'm in my early 30's and am using it to "freeze time." For fine lines and wrinkles in the eye area, I highly recommend adding on the ELE attachment to the Trinity. It's my favorite attachment by far and has done wonders for my eye area!Q: First of all, I have a friend who raves about your product. I am trying to even out my skin tone due to sun exposure, what do you recommend?
A: So great to hear your friend loves NuFACE! The Trinity Facial Trainer and the Lifter Serum will address skin tone. Also, the Vitamin C in the Lifter Serum is great for brightening, lightening and tightening!Q: My question is about hyper-pigmentation around my eyes and the sides of my cheeks.

A: Our devices are generally for improving contour and tone, but I suggest you consult with a skin care professional to get started with a great product for hyperpigmentation.Q: How do you use your S3 Lifter Serum?
