This is a helpful guide to help you decide which ones they are. Will the Toner vibrate or make a noise? No, the toner will not move, vibrate or make a noise. The product works by sending EMS pulses through the gold contacts, which will be felt as muscle contractions in the treatment area.
The green led continually flashes on & off, is this right? Yes, after selecting your required program, there will be a brief pause before the green led begins to flash on & off throughout the treatment.
How often can I repeat the Treatment? For best results we recommend following the Faradic Facial Toning regime every day for the first few weeks, alternating between programmes 1 and 2 each day.
Afterwards, use as required to maintain good tone.
The collagen and retinol treatments should only be used once in 24 hours and we would recommend 48 hours if you have sensitive skin.
Regular treatments should be carried out to achieve longer lasting results. How should I prepare my skin for treatment?
Ideally before starting treatment, cleanse the skin and secure hair back off the face, also have a mirror available.
Always do a patch test with the conductive gel on an inconspicuous area of your skin 24 hours before use. If any irritation occurs do not continue treatment. Likewise if you have a skin reaction when first using the collagen and retinol patches, do not continue treatment. Is there anything I must avoid after treatment?
Retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, after use we recommend using a high factor sunscreen.
Do I have to use the Conductive Gel?
Yes. Using without conductive gel may cause discomfort.
Is the Conductive
Gel tested on animals or does it contain any animal ingredients? The conductive gel uses only mineral and/or vegetable ingredients and in line with the EU cosmetic directive is not tested on animals.
Can I re-use the patches?
No, the patches are designed for single use only.
How long can I leave the patches on for? The majority of the infusion happens in the first 5-15 minutes on each treatment area, but the patches may remain on the face for up to one hour.
How should I store the patches? Because retinol easily breaks down you should store the patches, in a cool dry place away from sunlight. You may even prefer to store them in the refrigerator to have a cooling gel patch for treatment.
Why do the pulses feel stronger on one side of my face?
This is probably the side of your body that you use most or chew your food or both. The muscles on this side of your face are as a result more developed and more toned and will respond more vigorously to the EMS stimulation. Over time the other side will improve and gain important tone and firmness.
My teeth feel sensitive during the treatment, is this normal?
Your teeth may feel slightly sensitive during treatment, this is perfectly normal.
I cant feel any sensation when using the Faradic Toning on my forehead?
The forehead can require higher intensity levels than normally used on other areas of the face, however it is important to remember to return to lower intensity by pressing the - button several times before returning to treat the facial area.
