Best of 2014: Breakthrough Device

Best of 2014: Breakthrough Device
December 10, 2014 Reviewed by Christina 5 Comments

From the beginning, the strategy behind Truth In Aging has been to work with our community to discover what is needed, research proven ingredients and technologies and create unique products that really work. When our members were first asked about which needs were not currently being fulfilled, they voiced the need for devices that would bring the technologies from the dermatologist's office into the home. Since sagging skin was listed as the top concern by the majority of our members in TIA's Real Beauty At Any Age Report this past spring, it was clear that microcurrent — one of the most effective ways to combat this issue — would be a device that would truly address our community's needs. So if you'll permit us, we're going to toot our own pre-New Year's horn with today's winner.

The Winner: Truth Rejuvenate At-Home Microcurrent

Microcurrent works at the muscular level, using a subsensory electric current that delivers a pulse to the facial muscles to stimulate them and the surrounding tissue. What it's really doing is mimicking the body's own electrical impulses, re-educating muscles that have started to slacken with age and helping them relocate to where they should be. The result is restored tone to facial and neck muscles, as well as firmer and plumper skin. When Marta revisted her January beauty predictions in August 2014, she wrote that her prediction that "we would see more great microcurrent devices for use at home has, so far, not come true." Since she had not been impressed with the Nu-face or Serious Skincare, that left only the Myotone Facial Toning System as an at-home microcurrent device that worked well... until now.

In November 2014, Truth In Aging launched its very own exclusive, at-home microcurrent device, Truth Rejuvenate. Its ergonomic shape makes it comfortable and efficient to use, and its prong size and higher level of current sets it apart from other similar devices. The Truth Rejuvenate has larger prongs than the Myotone, but not as large as NuFace, which Marta deemed too large (even in their latest version). It's set at 20 microamps, and there are three settings to increase the frequency based on the user's personal comfort level — there is a sensation of vibration, but not an uncomfortable prickle. Designed to be used on both the face and neck, our microcurrent device delivers noticeable skin-firming and wrinkle-reducing results  — all in the privacy of your own home, for a fraction of the cost of expensive salon treatments. We're immensely proud to name it the breakthrough device of the year.

    Hi Janice, we are currently looking at some design changes for our device and it isn't currently on sale. But yes, we did engineer it so that the frequencies would be most effective and comfortable to use. We'll let you know when we are ready to bring it back.

    I am the owner of both, the NuFace (original version) and Serious Skincare Egg. I was wondering if the TIA's Microcurrent device is more effective at tackling sagging skin (particularly marionette lines) than the other 2 devices I metioned. First off, I've been using the devices religiously for the past few years & I use both at the highest settings. My sole issues with the NuFace are #1 I do not see much of a lift around the brow area and most annoying #2 My marionette lines disappear for only a few min after usage. The results are NOT long lasting. As far as the Serious Skincare Egg, the product seems to only achieve effective results around my eyes ~ I do see a long lasting "eye lift" which last for days. Can you please share your thoughts/advice as far as whether or not you think TIA's device would produce longer lasting results? I understand TIA's device offers a higher microcurrent setting. Would that help? Thanks for your time...

    Hi Martha,

    I bought the Myotone Facial Toning Device in 2013

    What is the difference between "Myotone Facial Toning Device" and the new "Truth Rejuvenate At-Home Microcurrent" ?

    Which one is better? and how?

    Hi Lorraine, I am sorry to hear that you haven't seen results. It is a little difficult to advise you on your question regarding LED without knowing a few things: what results are you looking for/what concerns do you have? what LED light are you currently using? how often are you using and for how long? When did you start? With some more background, I'd be delighted to try to help.

    I'm a little disappointed. Last year I did lots of research on microcurrents and relied on Martha's research to learn that the very best in terms of wrinkle reduction was not a microcurrent product but TIA's very own ultra renew. I bought both the ultra renew plus and sculpt. The renew plus did not give me the same results Martha experienced, nor the results I had experienced with a microcurrent. The ultra renew sculpt is still in the box... as it was on back order and I was already disappointed with the first tool by the time it arrived.

    Now, just a few months later, TIA is proud to not only offer it's own microcurrent product, but to also give it an award.

    So the product I was originally looking for turns out to be the right technology afterall.

    Any suggestions? Will changing the color I'm using with the ultra renew plus give me better results?

    I'm hesitant to invest in another TIA product, but really want a microcurrent device.
