If you know anything about me then it’s that I’m on a constant journey to improve my skin, So when Silk’n reached out to me about testing and reviewing one of their most popular skincare products How could I refuse?
There did of course have to be a few ground rules as this was not going to be a quick review. With a device like the Facetite your not going to see results immediately, no this was going to have to be done over at least two or three months. This way I can really see if there is any real changes to the current lines and wrinkles on my face.
At the time of writing this I am still currently reviewing the Facetite, I have been using it now for about three weeks, twice a week. It has five levels of heat intensity. You start off on the lowest and soon find out which you are most comfortable at, I think because I find it so relaxing I have graduated quickly to level four. I tend to use it when I am sitting in front of the TV at night when I know I’ll be in the one place for at least an hour or so and I can just plug in. The serum that you apply before using the Facetite is much like a gel, quite thick and clear. I find that you don’t need a lot and it lasts a fair while but once it starts to dry out you do notice that the Facetite isn’t making the same connection to the skin and its time to re-apply.
Now I know your wondering, How exactly does this device work? Whats the magic that’s going to get rid of my wrinkles?
Well it all comes from Three different energy sources Bi-Polar RF Energy, LED Light Energy and IR Heat Energy. These three energy’s combined can reach and provide heat to all our cell layers, From the Epidermis to the underlying Fat layer. It’s the heat that then stimulates the contraction of fibers in the skin complex. So by you using the Facetite for the recommended time twice weekly you are stimulating those areas and in turn bringing back the elasticity and ‘Bounce’ to the skin. This is what gives it the more youthful glow and look. It’s helping your own collagen and elastin fibers every time you use the Facetite which helps to tighten and lift the skin, in turn helping with any current signs of ageing. Well this is the hope!
The genius thing about it is, there’s No needles, No swelling, No Down-time and No Pain!
Who is it perfect for? Well I would say if you are showing signs of ageing, even the smallest lines then this would be the tool for you. It’s perfect for those of us who are starting to notice a loss of volume in their face or neck, facial lines or frown lines. You don’t need to have anything severe or too noticeable for it to work. What I would say is check out Silkn’s website because they do have a massive range of products especially for this issue and you might find there is something more suited to your particular needs.
I will be taking pictures During this process so you can see my skin ( in it’s full naked glory!) which I think is the best and fairest way for us to judge if the Facetite is making any kind of difference to my lines or wrinkles. I won’t of course be editing these images so please be kind! I have taken some initial photos of my face on my phone camera and added them at the bottom of the page, I will however be adding more detailed pics over the coming weeks to keep you updated.
OK, that’s me then. For the next 9 weeks I will twice weekly enjoying my wee hour of relaxation and hoping I’m getting visibly younger, Here’s hoping…..
See you on the other side in 9 weeks!
Ok so Here I am, Checking in after my Full 13 week test and review of the Facetite. Where to start……..
Well I have to say I am, Overall pretty impressed by this little device. I genuinely had my reservations when I first started out and not because I don’t think devices like these can work, more because I didn’t think I would find one to work on me if that makes sense. Don’t get me wrong I am quite happy to age gracefully, naturally without any Outside help, However if I can smooth out the process in a natural way, without any surgery, needles or Doctors required then I’m first in line!
I’ve found myself falling into a nice wee routine of plugging myself into my Facetite on a Sunday and Wednesday night, both times whilst watching the T.V about an hour before bed. There are a couple of reasons for this, the first is that I genuinely find it so relaxing. The warmth on my skin and face after a long day is so calming and nice I would do it every night if I could! Then there is also the added benefit of being able to apply my night skincare routine straight afterwards when I go upstairs to bed. I find this then means I get optimum results from the stimulation of the collagen and elastin as I’m applying my Hyularonic and Retinol serums directly after treatment.
I have genuinely seen a massive improvement in my facial lines, some more than others but its still fantastic to me! I have noticed that the smile line on the left side of my face is not quite as prominent in depth or length as it was when I started. The lines on my forehead are improving with each application and my frown lines have all but dissipated. I can’t tell you how much this has surprised me, the confidence it has given me too just feeling that little bit fresher. Obviously I’m going to age, like I said at the beginning of this review I’m not trying to look Twenty again, just a fresher more vibrant version of my Forty year old self and I think if I continue to use this tool then I might just achieve that.
Don’t forget to check out the updated photo’s below and if your interested in hearing more and seeing the device in action go and check out the video on my YouTube Channel now.
