DermaWand is an at home non-surgical device which claims to reverse the signs of ageing, giving you toned, wrinkle free and younger looking skin. DermaWand uses radio frequencies, which provide instant stimulation, giving you a massage like effect and delivering enriched oxygen along with thermal energy. The infomercial on TV will show you the benefits of using DermaWand and the results they claim you can obtain while using their product for only three minutes twice a day, all from the comfort of your own home. DermaWand promises to reduce enlarged pores, provide you with an even skin tone, plump up your lips by reducing the vertical pucker lines above them, and reduce puffiness around the eyes and get rid of the hooding caused by drooping upper eyelids.
Does the Derma Wand Truly Work?
Unlike the radio frequency (RF) machines used by medical specialists, DermaWand is lower in amplitude and is thus safe for use at home. However, it is not powerful enough to give you the measurable noticeable results. DermaWand uses the same high frequency technology used in beauty spas and salons. Radio frequency is emitted through electrodes. With the help of this technology, topical skincare products applied by estheticians are more easily absorbed into the skin. They can then stimulate the production of collagen and increase elasticity, giving your skin a more tight and toned texture and appearance. The results are not long lasting.
The DermaWand applies stimulation at 168,000 cycles per second, making your skin appear lifted and toned if combined with product use. Better results are promised if used in conjunction with a serum of a higher pharmaceutical grade. Regardless of the quality of the product, the results are not permanent.
Using the Derma Wand
It is important to carefully follow the regime detailed in the DermaWand product instructions. Some highlights include:
• Start using DermaWand on the lowest power setting and gradually increase to the level that suits your skin type
• Cleanse and dry your skin completely before using the device
• Never use the higher level settings around the eye area
• Apply moisturizer and repeat use of the DermaWand for two to three minutes
• Discontinue use in cases of excessive peeling, redness or constant dry-feeling skin
• DO NOT use DermaWand if you are pregnant
• DO NOT use DermaWand if you have a skin condition or have skin that is prone to broken capillaries
Online User Reviews for the Derma Wand
A quick search of DermaWand reviews will find that most individuals noticed only a slight change in the texture of the skin after using the device for a couple of months. Many reported being afraid to use it in the area around the eye. Others reported a hesitancy to increase the power level as the zapping sensation caused on the skin while using the device was unpleasant.
Derma Wand: Is it Worth the Price?
DermaWand does not work overnight. In order to be successful, you have to be diligent and patient. You may not notice any change at all until after at least six weeks of continuous use. While this product may work for some with particularly responsive skin qualities, it is certainly not effective for all.
The DermaWand price point is attractive when compared to a non-surgical facelift or a traditional surgical facelift. However, the results are barely measurable and thus the DermaWand, at approximately $200, may in fact be a huge waste of money, especially given the fact that it is mostly effective at making good quality – expensive- products penetrate the skin.
Choose wisely. If you are looking for real results, a trip to the cosmetic physician’s office is almost certainly in order. If you are willing to spend time and wait for minimal results that last only as long as you use the device, then the DermaWand may in fact be a good at home solution for your skin care needs.
