THE TECHNOLOGYThis petite device combines 3 high powered technologies: Radio-Frequency, Red LED and Infrared Light. This unique trio safely diffuses energy deep within the dermal layer to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin. Radio Frequency immediately shortens the collagen fibres, giving you a more toned and sculpted appearance. Moreover, the addition of Red LED and Infrared light increases your cellular metabolism, improving your skin’s tone and texture. Over time, this will gradually plump the skin to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Step 1: Prep your skin. Begin your treatment by thoroughly cleansing your face. To optimise results, it’s essential to keep your skin entirely clean and dry. Ensure that all creams, cleansers and moisturisers are removed, as they may hinder the effectiveness of the device.
Step 2: Plan your treatment. Divide your face into 4 distinct treatment areas as shown in the illustration. Remove the cap and power on the device until the blue light illuminates. The device will initially begin on the LOW energy setting (1 blue light), which can be increased to HIGH (2 blue lights) by pressing the power button again. We recommend starting your treatment on the lowest level and move up to high if it is comfortable to do so.
Step 3: Apply contouring serum. Apply a generous layer of the iluminage Youth Activator Contouring serum to the area of the skin that you plan to treat. This serum is essential to ensure the efficiency of the device. Reapply the serum as needed throughout the treatment process, as the device will not function properly without the proper amount of serum.
Step 4: Treat your skin. Place the tip of the applicator in full contact with your skin. The treatment head will illuminate red, indicating that the energy is being delivered. You may feel a gentle warming sensation. Move the device in a constant circular motion on the selected zone. The device will vibrate after 4 minutes to indicate it’s time to move onto the next treatment zone. Following the treatment of the 4 zones, the device will automatically power off.
Step 5: Post treatment care. Once your treatment has ended, you may either remove the serum with a warm, damp cloth or massage it into your skin for added hydration. If you skin looks slightly red after treatment, this should disappear within 24 hours.
