An electric muscle stimulator for a non-surgical facelift
What it is- We’ve saved the best—and most intriguing—device for last! The DHC Perfect Wave is an electric muscle stimulator used primarily to perform at-home non-surgical facelifts. Sounds intense, right? That’s because it is! What the DHC Perfect Wave does is send 1.5kHZ of electric currents deep into your muscles, easily exercising the muscles of the face that are difficult to train manually. The intention is that by exercising the facial muscles, sagging, wrinkling and overall slacking of the face is prevented, or even reversed.
Why it’s popular- A youthful look is characterized by firm skin, unaffected by gravity. Because this device exercises your muscles to combat the natural effects of aging, electric muscle stimulation has become a popular beauty treatment, often performed at an esthetician’s office. DHC’s Perfect Wave is the first at-home device of it’s kind, making it perfectly safe to use on your own.
How it works- For the electric current to reach the facial muscles, an accompanying serum-gel, which acts as a conductor, is applied to the face. The machine will run for 10 minutes and beep at the five-minute mark, allowing the device to be used on each side of the face equally. Glide the electric muscle stimulator in an upward motion, concentrating on the primary facial muscles which include the cheekbones, smile lines and eyebrows.
Our verdict- We tried the Perfect Wave for two weeks, twice a week. The initial sensation of electric currents involuntarily moving your muscles was something to get used to. This device isn’t comforting or relaxing at all- in fact it almost feels a bit stressful! But it WORKS. Almost immediately after the first try, we could see the difference in our cheekbones and eyebrows being lifted slightly more upward. After two weeks, we could see the users face look noticeably defined and contoured!
