Hi everyone

Has anyone ever noticed a loss of facial fat from using Tua trend or Nuface?

The subcutaneous fat in my face has suddenly and drastically reduced, so that I now look gaunt and my skin is suddenly crepey and hanging and horrible! I recently stopped some medication I've been on for 20 years, so it's possible it could be down to this, but I'm just wondering whether it could possibly be the microcurrent?! In which case I will stop the Nuface immediately!

Does anyone have any experience with losing facial fat after microcurrent use?

Thanks

Katie

Personally, no. Supposedly it stimulates muscle and collagen production and although everyone is different; I haven't really even heard of anyone having fat loss issues with microcurrent.. I have heard it occasionally with laser and RF. For me it's pretty subtle over time but it does tone and lift a bit.

The problems you mention are signs of aging but if you've experienced it suddenly and drastically I would consider everything that you've done differently lately, including the micro current,the medication you stopped taking and anything else.
A change in hormone levels sometimes has this affect.

So sorry to hear this...
I have been using Nuface for years now and no strange effects.
This sounds like something that can happen with RF devices if they are too strong.
If you are only using micro-currents, perhaps it is worth checking whether your devices are malfunctioning, by checking current they produce?

I would also advise checking that medication in detail, if that had impact on your facial fat loss, chances are you are not the first person experiencing it.

Hey guys, thanks so much for your replies.

Tigerlily - yes I will look into the hormone thing. That could be a possibility. I'm glad to hear that fat loss isn't heard of in microcurrent.

Maggie - I was actually using the Tua trend last year, which is when I experienced the sudden and extreme fat loss. But I guess that's a low current like the Nuface? Although it causes contractions so maybe not?... I've looked into the medication but it's not that common a brand so not much online about it. I do know it made my boobs bigger (it's not the contraceptive pill) so concluded that maybe it could pad out my face too. So coming off it may have had an effect on that. But I'm glad no one else has experienced this with microcurrent.

Thanks again for your help

I was always worried about this myself, but I have had half a dozen professional microcurrents over the last couple years and I don't think it caused fat loss. \I have experienced a little less fat in my face over the last few years but I think it is from losing a little weight overall, stress and natural aging.

What I will say is I definitely noticed that I could *not* do two professional micocurrent sessions in one month...while the first gave me a glow and a bit of tone, the second just 2 weeks later made me look haggard and tired. I recovered from it but it took almost 10 days. I think less is more.

Thanks for your reply. Yes that makes sense. I think I actually look better in my lower face now that I've stopped. The fat has still gone, but that may be from other causes

I think your fat loss is from the Tua Trend and not microcurrent. I experienced fat loss from the Tua Viso, my face looked too thin after awhile. I was hoping for a lift in the jowls but I didn't care for the overall look from the Tua Viso so needless to say I quit using it.

You know Im curious as to if this is like facial exercises in that they say you need to change your diet to ensure you eat protein etc to avoid fat loss.
It would make sense as MC is working the muscles and so they need protein to recuperate don't they.
I seem to remember someone at flexeffect saying that if protein wasn't eaten then facial fat could be used instead in response to someone posting one time (think it was peaprincess). Not sure if that ever worked or not but it seems to fit what is beign said here.
