Aging is a part of life. We all age. But fortunately, anti-aging facial treatments can protect our facial skin and slow down the signs of aging.
The skin’s aging process occurs in two different ways – intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging is related to the DNA we inherit from our parents, and it is inevitable and pre-determined. As a result of intrinsic aging, the skin becomes thinner, less elastic and essentially dryer. This is a direct result of a reduction in the overall production of collagen. This decrease, combined with gravitation, leads to the sagging of the skin. The skin becomes dryer because with age the dermis is stripped of its ability to retain moisture. In addition, the aging process leads to a substantial reduction in the sweat glands and sebaceous glands which naturally provide moisture to the skin and help it look plump. Extrinsic aging is associated with exposure to various toxins and environmental elements. The foremost and most detrimental element is the sun. UV sun rays cause an effect known as ‘photo-aging’ which results in the premature appearance of facial fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, freckles, enlarged pores, broken capillaries and rough, uneven skin tone.
The signs of aging that come with age
As we age, the changes listed below naturally occur:
- Skin becomes coarser.
- Skin becomes loose (the loss of the collagen and elastin causes the skin to hang loosely)
- Skin becomes more translucent and thinner.
- Skin becomes more brittle.
The NowMi Pro is an advanced, anti-aging facial treatment that consists of two parts. The first is the NowMi Pro Daily sonic cleansing which cleanses and moisturizes the skin on a daily basis, and the second is the NowMi Pro Weekly sonic facial anti-aging treatment which provides a spa-quality anti-aging facial that slows down the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, reinvigorates the skin and protects it from damaging extrinsic factors such as UV rays, smoke and pollution.

Healthy facial skin starts with clean skin. Sonic facial cleansing is much more effective than hand washing. With the NowMi Pro Daily, you can deeply cleanse the skin and get rid of all makeup, dirt, oil and the like.
The NowMi Pro sonic device is equipped with delicate silicone micro-fingers. The NowMi cleansing formula is placed onto the micro-fingers and then massaged into the face.
The cleansing action is exponentially improved by sonic energy. The NowMi Pro device issues 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute which help the cleansing gel penetrate and deeply cleanse all of the pores. While the treatment is extremely effective, it is also very gentle on the skin and doesn’t cause irritation.
The cleansing gel does much more than just clean the skin. It infuses it with vitamins B3, B5, E and Dead Sea minerals! These essential vitamins and minerals rejuvinate and strengthen the skin as well as protect it from extrinsic factors. Specifically:
- Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals caused by UV exposure, pollution, smoke, unhealthy food and more. Vitamin E is known for:
- Anti-aging: As a result of damaging extrinsic factors such as UV light and pollution, the skin creates free-radicals. These molecules damage the collagen and the skin cells. As a result, wrinkles and brown spots appear. Vitamin E plays a critical role in neutralizing the free radicals and thus preventing premature aging of the skin.
- Skin hydration: Vitamin E keeps the skin moisturized and supple, and it is also known to reduce inflammation.
- Scar reduction: Vitamin E neutralizes the free radicals which slow down the facial skin healing process and helps to prevent permanent scarring.
- Vitamin B3: Vitamin B3 is effective on all skin types and has a wide variety of skin benefits. Specifically,
- Skin protection: Vitamin B3 is an antioxidant that protects the skin from infrared, UV and visible light. Vitamin B3 also protects the skin from heat, an important factor for those with hormonal related pigmentation since the heat can cause the overproduction of pigment.
- Hyper-pigmentation reduction: Vitamin B3 reduces hyper-pigmentation by reducing pigment production and its penetration into the skin. As a result, the skin has a more even complexion. In addition, the vitamin has been shown to brighten the skin.
- Anti-aging: Niacinamide has been proven to reduce wrinkles, pigmented spots, yellowing and red blotchiness. It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which are responsible for the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
- Vitamin B5: Also known as Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B5 is deeply hydrating and helps the skin absorb moisture from the air. It is also important in keeping the skin looking healthy and contributes to its softness and smoothness. Its key advantages include:
- Natural hydrator: Vitamin B5 is a natural hydrator known as a humectant. Its function is to stabilize the skin’s barrier function. As a result, the skin is able to retain greater quantities of water.
- Skin rejuvenation: The alcohol analog of Vitamin B5 is known as panthenol. Panthenol has been proven to sooth and soften the skin and to slow down the signs of aging. It also plumps and moisturizes the outer layer of the skin which helps it looks fuller and younger.
- Skin repair: Vitamin B5 is used to treat a variety of skin conditions- from minor skin irritation to major scar damage. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory benefits and is used to reduce discomfort related to conditions such as eczema.
- Dead Sea minerals: The Dead Sea is known as the richest source of healing minerals in the world. The most prevalent minerals used to are:
- Zinc- regulates natural cell growth and regeneration. It enables cell renewal and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It is also an antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals. Zink also has anti-acne properties and is used as an anti-inflammatory agent.
- Calcium: Strengthens the skin’s cell membranes and cleanses the pores. It also soothes and relives the skin.
- Chloride- Corrects the balance of alkaline and acid in the skin’s cells which is critical for the metabolism of the cell.
- Sodium Chloride- hydrates and nourishes the skin’s cells and eliminates toxic waste which improves their permeability.
Another important action that the NowMi Pro Daily device performs that of a facial massage. The sonic face brush massages the facial muscles which and boosts blood circulation. As a result, the body increases the production of collagen and elastin- key proteins that restore the skin’s elasticity and firmness.
The NowMi Pro sonic device is also highly hygienic since it is made of nonporous silicone which is resistant to bacteria buildup. The device is also completely waterproof, so users can use it in the shower or bath. Designed to keep up with today’s busy lifestyle, in a single charge, the device has enough energy to supply a month’s worth of treatments.
NowMi Pro Weekly Treatment
With the NowMi Pro Weekly, you can enjoy a spa-quality anti-aging facial at home. The treatment simultaneously performs 4 actions – sonic skin exfoliation, sonic nourishment, sonic oxygenation and sonic protection.
1. Sonic exfoliation: The exfoliation is performed using the NowMi vitamin C effervescent tablet. The tablet is mixed together with the NowMi Lubricant gel and massaged into the face. The tablet has a slightly coarse surface that removes the outermost layer of the skin. The exfoliation is further enhanced by the sonic energy which emits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute. As a result of the exfoliation, the skin looks glowing and revitalized. Best of all, the exfoliation opens up the pores and enables the active ingredients to best penetrate the skin.
2. Sonic nourishment: The NowMi effervescent tablet contains virtually pure vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is highly sensitive and loses its potency if exposed to light or air. For this reason, the NowMi effervescent tablet is vacuum-sealed until use, assuring the most effective form of vitamin C.
The NowMi lubricant gel is rich in vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid.
The main benefits of these ingredients are:
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C is hailed as the magic vitamin for skincare. It has been clinically proven to revitalize the skin and help it repair itself. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that curbs the damaging effects of free-radicals which cause the skin to age prematurely.
Primary advantages of the vitamin include:
- Anti-aging effect: As we age, our skin has less and less collagen which causes it to sag and wrinkles to appear. Vitamin C plays a vital role in helping the skin to produce new collagen. With the new collagen, the aging process is slowed down and the skin looks plumper and more supple.
- Anti-inflammatory effect: Vitamin C reduces skin inflammation. This helps to prevent post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and age-related inflammatory skin conditions such as Rosacea.
- Anti-pigmentary effect: Vitamin C curbs the formation of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its color. It helps to repair pigmentation damage and provides the skin with a more even tone. It also helps in lightening the skin.
- Skin protection: Vitamin C protects the skin from damaging UV rays. The UV rays stimulate the formation of free radicals that harm the skin and cause premature aging, known as photoaging. Clinical studies have shown that vitamin C creates a photo-protective effect against photoaging – it limits collagen disintegration and damage to the pigment, helps to stabilize the collagen fibers, and produces new collagen.
- Vitamin E: Discussed above
- Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin hydration. It is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water and helps tissues stay moist and lubricated. Its key benefits are:
- Anti-aging: When the skin is well hydrated, this slows down the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Supple skin: The hydration helps the skin to have a soft and supple appearance.
- Wound healing: Hyaluronic acid accelerates the wound healing process by balancing inflammation levels and signaling the body to create more blood vessels in the treatment area.
The active ingredients are infused into the skin. The infusion is improved by the sonic energy which helps them to penetrate deeper and faster into the skin. Once the skin’s supply of vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid are restored, the skin starts to repair itself and turn back the signs of aging.
- Sonic Oxygenation: The NowMi treatment is unique since it stimulates the body to “oxygenate itself from within”. During treatment, a chemical reaction occurs when the NowMi effervescent tablet comes into contact with the lubricant gel. The reaction creates a C02 rich environment on the skin’s surface. The body responds to this by sending 02 infused blood cells to the treatment area. This natural oxygenation process helps the skin cells to best absorb the active ingredients. Furthermore, the NowMi Pro device emits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute which degas the C02 microbubbles, and as a result, the oxygenation effect is increased exponentially.
- Sonic Protection: Vitamin C is the most common antioxidant in the skin. Unfortunately, with age, its levels dramatically reduce, and aged skin has about 70% fewer antioxidants than young skin. With the deciline in Vitamin C, the skin becomes more vulnerable to extrinsic factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke.
The NowMi Pro treatment restores the skin’s vitamin C supply which helps it to protect and heal itself from damaging extrinsic factors.The sonic energy plays an important role in the protection of the skin. The NowMi Pro device emits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute which exponentially increases the infusion of the vitamin C, ensuring that it reaches deep into the skin.
