When it comes to anti-aging, people will do a lot to fend off wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots, and the continuing slew of unsightly skin conditions. We all know that clinical treatments like laser skin rejuvenation and Botox injections offer dramatic improvements, but there’s something about the total convenience and privacy of at-home products that piques our interest. That’s why in the wake of advanced professional treatments, at-home skincare tools like the Clarisonic brush and TRIA Blue Light system have become all the rage. Introducing Silk’n FaceFX, a new anti-aging device formulated for home use. FaceFX promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin texture, brighten dull color, and reduce pore size in a month.
Home Fractional Energy in Silk’n FaceFX
Silk’n FaceFX mimics the technology used in doctor’s offices in a way that’s safe for home use. Home Fractional Energy, or HF energy, uses heat and light to rejuvenate multiple layers of the skin. Heat is useful for stimulating collagen growth and overall dermal regeneration, while light energy reverses photo-aging and promotes cell turnover. You may have heard the term “fractional” used in fractional skin resurfacing or Fraxel. It’s important to note that FaceFX doesn’t use this technology—but we’ll get to that later. FaceFX works on two levels: the Active HF goes to work on the outermost layers of the skin, correcting problems like fine lines and uneven texture. Deep HF penetrates deeper, addressing wrinkles and discoloration.
Silk’n FaceFX: The Stats
Silk’n FaceFX is a high-tech device designed to make the anti-aging process easy, effective, and discrete. Here’s what the Silk’n FaceFX offers:
- Includes one handheld device, charging stand, electrical cord, and training manual
- Recommended for use with lotion or serum to help the device glide over the skin
- Users should start to see results after using the FaceFX 3 times a week for about 20 minutes
- Retail price of about $300
Silk’n FaceFX vs Professional Skincare Treatments
The Silk’n FaceFX tries hard to compare to the likes of laser skin rejuvenation. Unfortunately, many users have founds its claims too good to be true. The lasers and other technology used in a professional’s office are unsafe to use at home. Thus, FaceFX can only mimic high-grade features. Most importantly, the FaceFX device uses “fractional light” rather than the “fractional laser” used in popular treatments. Fractional laser is ideal because it scatters laser beams at the microscopic level, punching tiny holes through the skin for rejuvenation purposes. Despite using “fractional” technology, FaceFX doesn’t operate in the same way. Instead, it uses a diode laser. Diode lasers are predominately used for laser hair removal, ContrAge, and for removing broken capillaries and brown spots.
While dermal heat has been proven effective at stimulating collagen and cell regrowth, the FaceFX may not get hot enough to really make a difference. Thermage is one of the warmest professional skincare treatments at 149 degrees Fahrenheit. Pelleve heats up to a comparatively cool 105.8 degrees. FaceFX operates between 60 and 95 degrees, and actually shuts off when it reaches 105.8.
