Hi everyone,

I know there are only a couple of us using this device, but I wondered if anyone had an update of how it's going ? The first couple of times I used it, I noticed a bit of sagging and muscle laxity. I thought this was due to botox I had, so I left using it for a while. The muscles didn't seem to firm back up, so I increased to the next level on the UP5 and the same has happened again. It's like a loss of muscle tone around my cheekbones, and my jawline looks puffy and saggy. I know that you have to be careful not to overdo this as it can cause sagging, but I don't think I have over done it. Any thoughts anyone ?

Hi Jackie! Is the UP5 an ultrasonic device? If it is, do you know how many mhz it is? I heard that you're not suppose to use anything under 3mhz for the face because it can cause loss of tissues.

Hi Lisey,

I don't really understand how that works, but some of the specifics are :

Input: AC 230V, 50 Hz (Europe/UK)
Output: DC12V, 300mA
Modified Square Wave
Frequency: 70 -500 Hz
Intensity level: 13.2V - 32.0V (Vp-p)


it says it's a microcurrent, does that make sense ?

thanks for your help
