I am in my mid 40's and starting to see signs of sagging at the corners of my mouth. Confused
I am looking for something I can use at home.

so far after researchung on the net, I am thinking about getting one of the following:

Baby Quasar
Talika light Duo
Tripillor Stop

My budget is around $200 to $400. Any reviews on the above or any suggestion on other devices?

Thanks a lot!

Facial exercise is your best choice to lift muscles and counteract sagging. But the best device would be the STOP which does tighten skin through radio frequency waves which heat up the collagen and causes it to contract.

I used a LED device for awhile, and did it see tightening. But I do own the STOP, and while results are not dramatic, it does tighten.

I agree, microcurrent plus combined with STOP!

Thank you PQ! Can you recomment any particular microcurrent device? Or do I need to go to a salon to have that done? I have no knowledge on microcurrent. Is it the same as galvanic equipment?

I have a professional microcurrent machine called Beautiful Image and it is great and I use it weekly. I also have a nuface that I use for a quick five min. lift daily. Nanci at ncnproskin is coming out with a home device that should cover everything needed in microcurrent....you might want to wait and see her device before buying.

Winewine -

I would wait to see what Nanci's machine offers and read my review of the new CACI home device.

Microcurrent and Galvanic are very different. I would read the other posts on this site there is an awful lot of excellent resources that explains both types of current.

For example:

Microcurrent site:
http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=47534

Microcurrent device
http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=46765

My resources on microcurrent theory
http://homebeautydevices.wordpress.com/resources/

Galvanic theory
http://www.homesalon.com.au/whatisgalvaniccurrent.htm

thanks everyone for the input!
I probably need to save up for all these good gadgets. lol

Will definitely wait for the reviews on the new microcurrent device.

I do own a Mia 1 and a Japanese ionic machine called Hada CriE. The combinatiin of these two helped with my pores size and blackheads.

Maybe I will get the STOP as my Christmas gift, then wait for Nanci's new machine!

Hi Toby, do you still do facial exercises or just microcurrent? How do you compare the two? Than you

I am delighted that microcurrent has truly created lift and volume to my face even with recent weight loss. Very Happy
My story....I am petite but back in 2007 I dieted to get to my ideal weight which was a ten pound weight loss and while my body looked great I had sudden sag to my face. That sag lead me to this forum....from here I started facial ex. LED lights and many more trial and error approaches. I finally landed with microcurrent in Feb. of 2012. I noticed lift and fullness coming back into my face after a series of treatments from a professional machine....so much so that I bought the machine. Within the last two months I have once again dieted off the dreaded 10 pounds that in 2007 created sag in my face....mind you I used the same diet and I am five years older...result?????I am at my ideal weight and my face is tighter than a tick!!! Laughing Seriously I am amazed and can attribute microcurrent to keeping my face in the best shape it has been in twenty years. I honestly thought in my 50's I would have to carry more weight to have my face looking full and lifted...folks I am thrilled to find that is no longer true....Microcurrent Rocks! Dancing

Please advise which microcurrent home device works? I truly would love to have some results due to weight loss ( 115 now at 5'6") and my sunken hollow cheeks with a bit of sagging at the corners of my mouth now.. It shadows a "jowl" and I feel so old when I look in the mirror.

My NuFace trinity has done nothing in 3 weeks that have owned it. Perhaps I need a stronger device? please recommend!

I would keep looking out for reviews on the new CACI by other EDS members.

I am going to try and review the Nuface Trinity, if I can get hold of one.

I have had good results with the Integra machine.

I hope this helps.

Philip,

Which one would you recommend us to make a purchase: the new CACI Microlift or Integra if we want to tighten the skin ?
