Today, more than ever before, people can dramatically slow down the signs of aging. There are so many options out there- from very invasive treatments such as facelifts to non-invasive creams and serums.
One of the most important keys to success is maintenance – adopting a skincare routine that keeps your skin clean and nourished. And this is where the NowMi anti-aging facial treatment at home comes in. The NowMi treatment performs two actions- daily skin cleansing and a weekly spa facial. By using it on a regular basis you can help your skin produce new collagen. The collagen keeps the skin firm and limits the appearance of wrinkles. The NowMi treatment also helps reduce unwanted pigmentation and prevents the formation of sun/age spots. With the NowMi device, you can enjoy firmer, plumper, and younger-looking skin. Best of all, the treatment takes only 5 minutes a day and you can perform it in the comfort of your home.
How does the NowMi anti-aging facial treatment at home work?
The NowMi treatment is unique since it enables you to enjoy a spa quality treatment at home. The NowMi scientists developed a treatment that is as powerful and effective as a professional treatment but adapted to a home use device.
The NowMi Weekly Facial
The NowMi weekly facial performs 4 skin actions:
- Exfoliation: Just like a professional spa, the skin is exfoliated. The exfoliation removes all dead skin, makeup and dirt and leaves the pores clean and open.
The exfoliation is performed using the NowMi vitamin C effervescent tablet. When it is combined with the NowMi gel, it easily glides over the skin. The surface of the effervescent tablet is slightly coarse and when it is massaged into the skin it performs the exfoliation.
Throughout the treatment, sonic energy is used to further enhance the results. The NowMi device emits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute. Because of the sonic energy, the exfoliation is very effective, yet gentle on the skin. Furthermore, research has shown that sonic cleansing is up to 6 times more efficient than hand washing alone.
- Nourishment: In a spa anti-aging facial, a smetician infuses active ingredients into the skin to slow down the signs of aging. And just like in a spa treatment, the NowMi infuses vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid into the skin. These ingredients have been scientifically proven to rejuvenate the skin and help it repair itself.
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C works wonders when it comes to the skin. First, it plays an important role in the formation of collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides the skin with its strength and firmness. As we age, the level of collagen in our skin dramatically reduces and as a result, the skin sags and wrinkles appear. When you infuse vitamin C into the skin, it can more easily produce new collagen. The collagen is used not only to firm the skin but also to repair it.
Second, vitamin C curbs the production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin its color. As we age, sun/age spots appear. These form because the skin produces too much melanin. Vitamin C helps the skin to regulate the production of melanin and clear away blemishes caused by the overproduction of melanin. This leaves the skin looking fresher, clearer and younger!
Vitamin C also has anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce age-related inflammatory skin conditions such as Rosacea and promote wound healing. In addition to all this, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from photodamage and other extrinsic aliments (discussed in the section about protection).
- Vitamin E: Vitamin E is an essential nutrient that supports the immune system and the proper functioning of the cells. Research has shown that it plays a vital role in skin healing, especially when it comes to scars and burns. Vitamin E is also a natural anti-inflammatory which enables it to soothe and calm the skin. Furthermore, it hydrates the skin and prevents it from drying out. Like vitamin C, vitamin E is an anti-oxidant (the benefits of which will be discussed in the protection section).
- Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a substance naturally produced by the body. Its primary function is to retain water and it is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water! Hyaluronic acid plays a major role in keeping tissues moist and well lubricated and as a result, the skin looks and feels more supple.
- Oxygenation: Many professional spas offer ‘oxygen facials’ that infuse oxygen into the skin. Oxygen has been shown to revitalize facial skin cells, increase collagen production and increase cell turnover.
The NowMi treatment takes a different approach to skin oxygenation. Rather than infusing oxygen externally, the NowMi treatment stimulates the skin to ‘oxygenate itself from within’. It does this based on the scientific principle called the Bohr effect.
The Bohr effect states that if the skin is bombarded with high levels of carbon dioxide, the body sends oxygen-rich cells to the areas. Therefore, during the NowMi treatment, when the vitamin C effervescent tablet comes into contact with the NowMi gel, a chemical reaction occurs. The reaction produces millions of minute carbon dioxide microbubbles. The body then responds and naturally oxygenates the area.
As a result of the oxygenation, the cells best absorb the active ingredients and their effect is maximized.
- Protection: One of the main causes of premature skin aging is overexposure to the sun’s UV rays. In fact, experts say that 90% of skin damage is caused by the sun! The NowMi treatment enables you to minimize this damage and protect your skin.
As mentioned above, during the NowMi treatment the skin is infused with vitamin C and E. These vitamins are powerful antioxidants that limit the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that harm and often destroy skin cells. Vitamin C and E are capable of neutralizing them and thus limit their harmful effects.
Free radicals are also produced by other extrinsic factors such as smoke and pollution. In a similar manner, the vitamins protect your skin from damage caused by these factors.
The NowMi daily treatment
The NowMi device has a surface with silicone micro-fingers. During treatment, the NowMi cleansing gel is placed onto this surface and gently massaged into the skin. The sonic energy enhances the cleansing action and ensures that the facial cleansing gel penetrates and cleans all of the pores.
The NowMi cleansing gel not only cleanses the skin, it also infuses it with nourishing vitamins and minerals. Specifically, the gel is enriched with vitamins E, B3, B4 and Dead Sea minerals.
By using the NowMi Pro device to cleanse your face every day, you can ensure that you remove all dirt, makeup and pollution that clogs up your pores. Once your pores are clean and can breathe more easily, your skin will automatically look and feel great.
Anti-aging facial treatments at home are a great way to slow down the signs of aging and help your skin look its very best. The NowMi treatment is a home-based treatment that delivers spa-like results! Used regularly, it helps you to keep our skin clean and nourished, and protected from damaging UV rays.
Treatment takes only 5 minutes and costs a fraction of the price of its spa equivalent. Try it and discover the difference for yourself.
