Many non-surgical facelift treatments in the market such as Botox and dermal fillers are marketed as 'turning back the clock' and 'reversing the ageing process' but really they are just covering up the marks that time have left on our face.
Dermal fillers might fill folds and lines and Botox might 'relax' wrinkles but they aren't targeting the ageing process and they are only ever a temporary measure.
Slendertone Face is a truly non-invasive alternative. Rather than targeting just the effects of ageing it tries to tackle one of the root causes. Muscles atrophy over time and, as they waste, we lose elasticity, resulting in sagging, hollowing and creasing of the skin.
Slendertone Face: Am I suitable?
Once you hit thirty muscles start to waste away and so anyone can benefit from Slendertone Face as it works to improve and maintain your facial muscles. As it is totally non-invasive then it is fine for anyone to use.
Slendertone Face: What do I have to do to prepare?
There is no preparation necessary before embarking on the Slendertone Face programme and it can be used in combination with any other procedures you're having.
Slendertone Face: What's the treatment like?
Slendertone Face uses electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, which sends pulses to the facial nerves to activate the body's natural muscle movement. It aims to plump up the muscles which smooths the overlying skin and reverse the typical signs of ageing such as volume loss. Once the initial programme – 12 weeks at five times a week for just 20 minutes – you move to a maintenance phase of twice a week.
Slendertone Face: What about after?
A clinical trial of 97 women between the ages of 35 and 55, using ultrasound to test muscle thickness, showed an average increase of 18.6% of the zygomatic muscle (one of the largest facial muscles often referred to as the smile muscle). In contrast, the control group showed a small decrease in muscle thickness in the same period.
