The NuFace Trinity handheld toning device uses microcurrents to tone facial muscles, increase circulation and promote elastin and collagen production. "As we age, our (facial) muscles either elongate or shorten just like any other muscles in the body," says NuFace founder Carol Cole. "By stimulating the muscles, the microcurrent ... actually tones the face, making it appear more lifted, without surgery." Equipped with a timer, a skin sensor and a rechargeable battery, the instrument also helps beauty products penetrate beyond the skin's surface. The head is removable, allowing users to alternate attachable LED therapy. Prior to use, NuFace gel primer should be applied to the treatment area to ensure suitable conductivity — $325 at Earthsavers (Lakeside Shopping Annex, 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Suite 140, Metairie, 835-0225; 3414 Hwy. 190, Mandeville, 985-674-1133; 5501 Magazine St., 899-8555; www.earthsaversonline.com).
