Just wondering, since Safetox is supposed to relax muscles, does that mean that it can cause sagging?... Because I am looking for something to lift my mid face actually... And while this looks nice and it appears that would also help my migraines, I am worried that it would make my mid face sag even more Sad Has anyone noticed any sagging?


It actually lifted my jowls, and does so by both relaxing the front muscles, and allowing your back of the head muscles to become more active and pull your face back. So no sagging.

wow, you can get a stronger one! I'm going to look into that, I could use a level 4 or 5, then I wouldn't need to do it so many times, (not that I've used my safetox for awhile).

I assume the price would be the same as the regular?

thanks for letting us know Bethany.

One more question: if anyone is prone to migraines, have you noticed if wearing this device is likely to trigger your migraines? I have read that it can sooth the pain if you already have one, but I am worried that the vibration may trigger one... TIA!

I suffer from migraines from time to time, they seem to be lessening as I age. The safetox in any case has never triggered one, in any case the opposite, if starting one it sometimes helped to soothe it... I would have to look back in this long thread but I seem to remember there is a similar device as Safetox specifically for migraines, same makers, named Cefaly, and I remember there was a poster who purchased it,... Don't know if the Cefaly also works on wrinkles or sagging though.

ATester is right: they do make a specific device for targeting migraines which, I understand, works along similar lines.

As a fellow migraine sufferer, I can also attest that my use of the Safetox has never once resulted in the onset of a migraine attack. Like ATester, I actually find the Safetox to be quite soothing.

Perhaps contact the Safetox people if you're particularly concerned about certain triggers. Do you find that vibrations and such have an adverse effect? Everyone's different and it may be worth obtaining an official answer, just in case, or at least finding out whether they might allow you to return it if it does turn out to cause you problems.

I think I'm about to invest in this gadget - my first one ever!
Has anyone bought one recently, and if so, is www.win-health.com still the distributor to go with for US orders?

I've got mine from WinHealth just few months ago.

No complains. The shipping was less than a week and their price is the best i could find.

Thank you both! Did you order the replacement electrodes with your Safetox order, too? Thank you!

I did purchase 3 packs of the 12 electrodes but I am still using the first pack. I did buy the Tac-gel from Amazon and that really helps extend the life of the electrodes.

I didn't. I want to see how it goes first.

I am on my second electrode now and i am too planning to use Tac-gel at some point.

I also want to see some improvements before i invest more into this device.

Just checking in.

I am still loving SafeTox.

It has definitely lessened my (used to be frequent) headaches.

My eyebrows are lifted....not dramatically, but at least as much as Dysport did for me.

Haven't noticed changes in jowls, yet.

NO HAIR THINNING!

Editing to add: Tac Gel is a true God send. It does a good job of really extending the life of the electrodes. I do wish I could buy the electrodes in USA. Hopefully one day I will be able to.

I thought you can buy a set of replacement electrodes on win-health.com... I am in the US and when I place my Safetox order, I plan on getting some of those too.

Yes, but shipping to USA adds to the cost! I wish I could pick the electrodes up locally, just to save $!

Hi I've been doing the 3 point method for a month now so I thought I would do an update.

So far I do think my eyebrows maybe a little higher and my face more open.My undereye area is looking a bit better.(less bags) I haven't seen any difference in the hooding on my left eye yet. (My right has always been fine). Wrinkles on my forehead look good but this was never an area that I was that concerned with. My jowls are still there but I'm not sure how much if any difference Safetox can make there.

Safetox is easy to use and with the exception of your forehead being clean, you can do it anytime.
I like that it is hands free and you can use while you getting ready or doing other things. I often buy gadgets that either take too long of a daily time commitment or you need 2 hands to complete. The chances of me staying with those kinds of gadgets go way down. This is something I think I will be able to stick with and hopefully continue to get good results. So far I am happy with this purchase. Smile

I have been using the Safetox for 12 weeks now and I have to say this along with ReAura are my favorite gadgets I have bought since I found EDS.
I first started out doing just the middle position for 6 weeks but only 2 to 3 days a week.
I added the 3 point position 6 weeks ago and in the last 2 weeks I have seen a big change in the "hound dog" bags under my eyes. I do think it has made a difference in the depth of my hatch lines underneath my eyes but I don't think any of those lines have totally gone away.

I can tell that my skin is tighter but some of this I attribute to the ReAura laser. I am still using the same 3 electrodes (I use a different one on each area I do- middle & 2 sides) and the Tac gel really helps them last.

Thanks Bethany, Toby and Keliu and everyone for your help and reviews. This is so easy to use and with me actually seeing results, it's a keeper.
Very Happy

Hi All,

I guess it's my turn for the update on Safetox.

It's been 2 months of every day using with some interruptions. Although only one month on Level 3. It took me really long time to get used to these sensations, but now i like it Smile

I tried "3 points treatment" for few days, but dropped it due to inconvenience. If i wanted to stimulate these above brows muscles i would use Tua Trend. I did this before with little or no results, so for now i am good with the central position only. I do 2 5 minutes programs on Level 3 every evening (Almost every evening Smile)

And while i can't report yet my horizontal lines disappeared, they are definitely smoothing and i just realized today - My mimics changed!
I was fighting forever with my stupid habit to squeeze my forehead with some facial expressions. I couldn't move up my eye brows without squeezing my whole forehead. NOT ANYMORE!

If that's what Botox does - God bless Safetox creators! I will never stop using this device!

Has anyone experienced a block in the lymph glands behind the ear with using this? This weekend I felt behind my left ear and there are 2 or 3 small bumps. I have been massaging and dry brushing them and they seem to be getting smaller. The bumps are on my neck behind the bottom half of my ear. I have stopped using the Safetox for now until they are gone. I don't think this is a big problem. Just interested to know if this has happened to anyone. Thanks.

Hi CookieD ,

I did have the same thing several times in my life. Never could figure out the cause.

Definitely not from using Safetox.

Could you get cold recently?

You know I did have a cold about 3 weeks ago. Maybe that's it. I thought maybe with Safetox allowing the muscles in the back of the head to become more dominate maybe it might have something to do with the lymph glands back there.
