I See A Real Difference
on August 6, 2016
I bought this from Amazon years ago after watching several infomercials for the device. I had a suspicion that claims about the device were bogus and I was just another sucker who was parted from their money. Imagine my surprise when I actually saw results!
I see the biggest difference in the drooping skin under my eyebrows. As we get older, everything starts to sag--no matter how good our skincare routine is. After treating one eye, the puffy hood of skin above the eyelid is noticeably tightened and the eyebrow is higher/more lifted than the untreated eye. The effect remains for several hours. Cheekbones appear somewhat more defined, and the drooping at the corners of the mouth is a bit improved as well. I also see results around the jawline, but the main problem with my full jowls is caused by being too heavy. There's only just so much improvement you'll get in that area when you're overweight. However, I'll take any improvement I can get.
I don't use the serum that came with this set. I use a lot more pressure than is shown in the tutorial, so I slather on a heavier emollient cream to allow the device to easily glide across the skin. I also use the device at its highest setting around the eyes (setting "9" rather than the recommended setting "1") and I think this gives me more dramatic results.
Here are some disclaimers for those of you expecting miracles:
Nothing is going to miraculously improve the look of your skin if you don't consistently take care of it. I get so tired of people writing negative reviews about devices or makeup after trying it one time and being disappointed that they don't look 20 years younger immediately or that makeup looks dry or crepey on their skin. You can often tell by their comments that they don't religiously care for their skin. I will be 57 this month, but I look like I'm in my early 40's (some say mid- to late-30s) because I have found truly effective skin care lines (Skinn Cosmetics and Baetea serums) and I follow an intense skin care routine--twice a day, every day. (If your skin has a tough, weathered or aged layer or is parched and dry, slathering on ANY makeup product won't hide this.)
Using this device, I don't see a lot of difference in skin texture, but I do see a notable difference in the firmness of the skin--less sagging. The more you use the device, the better the results--the results aren't permanent. When I forget about using it, sagging and puffiness return. Nice looking skin takes commitment.
For me, this device helps fight the sagging and puffiness that naturally occurs as skin ages in ways that good skincare cannot. Since I can't afford regular treatments from an esthetician and wouldn't dream of cosmetic surgery, I'm thrilled to get results with my sagging skin issues from the Dermawand.
