Living in a youth obsessed culture makes it difficult for women as they age. Consequently, most of us are always looking for the next big thing that guarantees it will help us to stave off a few of those extra year. The FaceMaster helps the strengthen the underlying muscles of the face to tone them and make the skin on top of them look more youthful. Because it does that, it also helps to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through a method called "feathering."
Things You'll Need
- Conductive solution
- Q-tips (for older versions of the product)
How to Use the FaceMaster to Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Establish the electrical current setting appropriate for you on the FaceMaster. If you are a beginner, do not to set the current beyond the third level. As your facial muscles strengthen, you can increase the current accordinly. It should always tingle slightly when set at the right level; however, it should never be painful. If it is, you have set the current level too high. Back it off until you feel nothing more than a slight tingle.
If you have not already done so, insert a 9-volt battery into the machine. Turn it on to make sure that it is working properly as outlined in the machine's instruction manual.
Plug the dual probe into the base of the machine.
Put the conductive solution that comes with the FaceMaster into the basin allotted for it in the front of the machine.
Cover the probe tips with the foam caps that are provided along with the newer FaceMaster versions. If you have an older version of the machine, then insert Q-tip applicators into the probes. Be sure that the cotton tip goes all the way down to the base of the probe as the stick part of the Q-tip will not conduct current.
Dip the probes into the conductive solution, making sure that they are saturated throughout.
Turn on the machine.
Touch the probe's tips together for one or two seconds. Check the machine to make sure that it is operating properly. If it is, you will feel a slight "tingle" when you apply the probes to your face.
Re-wet the foam or cotton tips with more conductive solution if you do not feel a slight tingle when the probes are applied to the skin. If that does not work, then the current intensity level may need to be increased. Continue the check out process until you begin to feel a tingle when the probes are touched to the skin.
Begin the feather procedure with the eyes. Start with the crow's feet on the outside corner of each eye. Place one probe at the outer corner of the eye. Take the other probe and push it back and forth lightly across the crow's feet at a perpendicular movement from the outside area of the line to just inside where the eye begins. Continue the process for between 10 and 30 seconds; no longer. Repeat the process with the other eye.
Move to the eleven crease lines between the eyebrows. Put one probe at the top of one of the eleven creases. Take the other probe and push it lightly back and forth across the crease in a perpendicular movement from top to bottom and back again. Continue the process for between 10 and 30 seconds total. Repeat the procedure with the other eleven crease.
Move to the wrinkles in the forehead. Place one probe at one end of a wrinkle Take the other probe and push it lightly back and forth in a zigzag motion across the wrinkle. Continue the process for between 10 and 30 seconds. Repeat the process with each forehead wrinkle.
Work on the mouth lines at the area commonly referred to as the "puppet lines." Place one probe at the bottom level of the line. Take the other probe and move it lightly back and forth in a zigzag motion across the length of the line. Continue the process for between 10 and 30 seconds; no longer. Repeat the procedure on the other side of the mouth.
Work on the tiny lines that surround the mouth, just above and below the lips. Place one probe at the upper corner of the top lip. Using the other probe, move it lightly back and forth perpendicular to the lines across the top of the lip. Continue this process for about 10 to 30 seconds; no longer. Repeat the same procedure with the bottom lip.
Work on the line folds on either side of the nose. Place one probe at the bottom of the nasal fold. Taking the other probe, move it lightly back and forth in a zigzag motion across the line, moving from the top to the bottom and back. Continue the process for between 10 and 30 seconds; no longer. Repeat the procedure on the other side of the nose
