Liz Earle used to be a beauty editor and is passionate about educating people about their skin and what they can do to make a visible difference. Liz has written many books about skin and nutrition over the last 20 years, and has pooled her knowledge into this one brilliant book. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone with an interest in skin, nutrition and wellness, and how they all play a part in how your skin behaves and looks.
The Tua Viso has been a much coveted skincare gadget by me for quite a while, until my 32nd birthday in July when I finally invested in one.
Tua Viso is Italian for “Your Face” and claims to reduce the signs of ageing, gives you a more firmed, sculpted and radiant appearance. The Tua Viso is a hand held gadget and a non-invasive treatment for the facial muscles that works via Hydro electronic micro-current stimulation. It was developed by an Italian Dermatologist – Dr Andrea Paolorosso and brought to the UK by facialist “Tina Richards“.
Micro-current is a low level of electrical current that mirrors the body’s own natural current. It’s a proven and accepted method of Muscle Re-education. There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the average micro-current skin treatment. Our facial skin is supported and anchored by a network of muscles, while we age the facial muscles start to lose their tone, volume and elasticity also the facial ligaments become loose that hold our muscles in place, this leads to a loss of facial contour and sagging. Although this is not the only reason for the visible signs of ageing, it will contribute to an aged appearance.
I have worked with some of the expensive salon “Non Surgical Facelift” machines and can conclude from using this myself that I have got far better results using this – This is my personal opinion and I am in no way connected to the company to sell or promote the Tua Viso. I am just interested in non-invasive treatments and gadgets that give results.
Here are some of the benefits of using a Micro-Current Machine
- Increased circulation for the blood and lymph – this I feel is a real plus point and will help detoxify the skin, reduce facial puffiness and under eye bags and improve the overall surface appearance of the skin. Skin is plump with an enhanced colour .
- Muscle re-education – you will prevent and correct the loss of facial tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Improves the firmness and tone of the cheeks, jaw line and neck for a more youthful appearance.
- Increased natural production of Collagen and Elastin
- Increased Protein sythesis
- Dispersion of hardened Collagen
Electrical stimulation for the facial muscles works the less used muscle fibres which is why this works much better than manual Facial Exercises (which may cause more wrinkles) and has many more benefits for your skin.
I feel that starting this earlier on will prevent more signs of ageing and keep your skin in great condition. I have been using it 3 – 4 times a week since the start of July and after the 2nd go I could notice results, especially around my eyes as the skin feels firmer and I look less tired. Admittedly I don’t have many fine lines yet, but I have noticed the deepening of my nasal folds either side of my mouth, and after a month of using my Tua Viso they have definitely improved. I actually hold a lot of tension in my facial muscles and since using the Tua Viso it has really helped alleviate it, especially around my jaw line.
Once you have been patient enough to learn how to use your Tua Viso and master the points on which to place it, then it really is very easy! No sticky pads that lose their sticky, no messy gels to apply, it just needs some water that you pour into the back reservoirs that dampen the sponges which you press to your face. As for the feeling, well I wouldn’t say it was nice but you actually get used to it – and I am a bit of a wimp. You can start off with the intensity low and build up to higher level – the higher the level the better the results. The whole face can be done in about 30 – 40 minutes (watch some TV). I choose to focus on areas where I need it more and do a couple more minutes, like around my eyes.
This may not be for everyone and as with everything some people will love it and some wont! but I feel it is a very good option as a non-invasive Anti-Ageing treatment for long-term use – whilst being cost effective.
Botox and Micro-current do not mix – so steer clear if you have Botox injections.
You can buy the Tua Viso online from Tina Richards Website.
