Back in October, I turned 26 and I had a moment with my skincare – specifically, my preventative anti-aging skincare routine. I have always taken good care of my skin, but I feel like I am approaching the age where acne treatments aren’t the only thing I need to consider. Now, I also need to think about how to keep my skin looking youthful, vibrant, and glowing.
When it comes to anti-aging treatments, I am a bit of a newb. I’ve never had a facial at the spa or invested in any other sort of anti-aging treatment. But, this year that’s all changing. I received the Silk’n FaceFX a few months ago and began using it regularly.
Silk’n FaceFX Review
The Silk’n FaceFX device is like bringing the spa home as it used fractional technology, red light technology, and deep tissue heating to provide fast and long-term skin rejuvenation. This technology encourages collagen production which is what keeps our skin looking youthful and healthy.
After just my first treatment with the Silk’n FaceFX device, I noticed that my pores appeared smaller (particularly the ones around my nose) and that my skin overall looked brighter and healthier. While I don’t have many wrinkles on my forehead, I did notice that some of the finer lines that I have there virtually disappeared after I used my Silk’n FaceFX device.The main spots I’ve been focusing my Silk’n FaceFX device has been around my eyes and on the “crows feet” area. My eyes have long been my problem spot, and when it comes to aging, I have noticed a few extra unwanted lines around my eyes over the last year or two. Using this device, I’ve found that my eyes look much more awake and bright, and some of the finer lines I’ve noticed have completely gone away. It’s been very exciting to see.
When you put the applicator to your skin, you’ll see a bright red light and then feel the applicator begin to heat up. There is a built-in skin temperature sensor to ensure the device does not exceed 41°C / 106°F so you don’t have to worry about it overheating or burning your skin. If you ever have any questions or concerns you can always contact the lovely people at Silk’n for help!
The entire treatment process is 5-7 minutes, which really isn’t long at all considering the dramatic results you get. You only want to do this treatment 3 times a week for the first four weeks, and then after that, you can use the device once monthly to maintain your results. **When you use this device on your eyes, you want to split the time you use the device up for each eye! So, you want to use this device for approximately 2 and a half minutes on each eye.
Overall I’ve noticed since using this that my pores look smaller, my skin looks smoother, and it appears more glowy and bright. It is a really relaxing treatment, and it really does feel like you have a mini-spa right in the comfort of your home. During the first month using this treatment, I used it as directed 3 times weekly. Since then, I have used it once a month. I typically try to schedule it a few days before I have a big event so that my skin looks it’s best and most glowing for those special occasions.
