WHAT IS A DERMA WAND?.
Most of the ladies reading this will have heard about facial toning machines which work on the muscles of the face to tighten and strengthen them well the Derma Wand is similar but works on the skin instead. It is a condensed version of machines used in salons to help tighten up loose skin and refresh the complexion as well as helping to smooth out fine lines. It is recommended if you use these facial toners to follow up with the Derma Wand to give you an even more youthful appearance.
WHAT THE BLURB SAYS
Derma Wand is a skin treatment device which generates ozone. The ozone is a strong oxidizer, which is beneficial in eradicating bacteria in the skin surface area.
The beneficial effects of ozone on the skin are well established and it has been a conventional practice in beauty salons to provide a ozone producing apparatus for the purpose. Derma Wand is a home version of the units used in salons.
Now you can treat lines, wrinkles and aging skin just like the experts without cosmetic surgery.
The Derma Wand, the breakthrough skin care system that can take one, five, up to 10 years off your skin's appearance in just minutes a day. Based on a skin care technology that's been used with great success for over 50 years in the professional beauty clinics and spas all over the world, Derma Wand condensed it, perfected it and made it available for everyone. Now go from damaged and blotchy to healthy, beautiful and more even.
The secret is a gentle high frequency pulse that stimulates the skin at an incredible 100,000 cycles per second bringing blood and nutrients to thesurface.
At the same time, the Derma Wand is producing enriched oxygen, one of nature's most powerful cleaning sources to exfoliate, oxygenate and purify your skin. You'll experience a pleasant smell like after a fresh rainstorm plus you'll feel and see the Derma Wand working wonders on your skin.
I first came across the Derma Wand when watching a television shopping channel and thought it sounded pretty good so sent for one to try out. On opening the parcel I found a little black leather case containing the Derma Wand along with an instruction leaflet. The wand itself is around six inches long and has a bulb at one end and a dial at the other which goes from 0 to 8 indicating the strength of the pulses to be emitted. When in use the bulb lights up red. The instruction booklet tells you to remove the dust cap from the bulb (doh!) and use on cleansed, dry skin. It is advised to try the wand out on your hand first to experience the tingling sensation it gives out. It isn't at all painful but is rather strange until you get used to it. When you first use the Derma Wand use it on the lowest setting of 1 for a few days until you no longer feel the intensity of the stimuli and then gradually build up to the setting you feel most comfortable with. Even at the lowest setting the Derma Wand is effective and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
USING THE DERMA WAND
Use on clean dry skin gently sweeping over the face in either circular movements or backwards and forwards whatever you prefer. This just helps to make sure the skin is properly cleansed and only takes a couple of minutes. Apply your usual moisturiser and repeat the process of sweeping the wand over your face and neck. It is not necessary to apply any pressure just let the wand touch your skin lightly. This helps your moisturiser to really sink into the skin. This should be done in the morning and at night for the first few days and then just as often as you want to use it after that. I use mine everyday as I enjoy the tingling sensation on my skin and also the fresh smell of ozone.
I have been using the Derma Wand everyday for several years now and have seen a noteable improvement in my complexion as well as skin tone. Even my husband noticed my skin was looking a lot better and he never usually notices anything like that! It is also useful for drying out spots.Using the wand you dab at the blemish by lifting the tip of the wand off the skin slightly. This will tingle a bit but is not painful. If this is done 3 or 4 times a day you will find the spot dries out much quicker than when left to it's own devices. I also feel it has helped with my fine lines, although not getting rid of them, they do look slightly more smoothed out and certainly haven't got any worse during the time I've been using the Derma Wand. After I've done the cleansing bit with the wand I then use it to exercise my face. Starting on the outside corner of my eyebrow I gently lift the skin with the wand and hold for 5 seconds then move onto the middle and outside corner in turn holding again for 5 seconds. I continue using the same method on my forehead, chin and jowls. Lastly I turn the Derma Wand down to 1 to use it on the delicate eye area. I place the wand on my browbone above the eye and gently lift the skin again for a count of 5 seconds in the inner, outer and middle of the brow and then move down to the under eye area. Gently sweeping from the inner eye area to the outside and holding for 5 seconds. Repeating these exercises a few times I have found it helps with puffy eyes and loose skin and even my fine lines look more smoothed.
Since I have been using Derma Wand my skin has definitely improved and a lot of people tell me I don't look my age in fact just the other day someone thought I was my 29 year old daughters sister so that really made my day! I feel the Derma Wand has a lot to do with this so I would not hesitate to recommend it if your skin could do with a pick me up. I originally bought mine from Ideal World for £49.00 around 5 years ago but I have seen them on ebay for around the £35.00 mark so do shop around. They are a bit difficult to find but well worth the effort and when you consider what we girls pay for various creams and potions the Derma Wand is a sound investment.
Thank you for reading
I paid 149.00 for this derma wand it is really for middle age people mostly, i believe its just a muscle stimulator. It like exercising your muscles only its on your face, if you dont have any muscles left then most likely it won't work for you. its more like getting a facial but more like a lazy way of doing it. Electricity runs threw your face stimulating and contracting your muscles . I think its okay to use only for that purpose. I'm kindda skeptical about getting rid of lines or deep lines, if it damages the inner layer of your skin it to produce more collagen then it might make your lines worst by drying out your lines more. I think its might be pretty good for cellulite in your thighs cause your stimulating your muscles to burn the fat thats producing the cellulite in your thighs or other parts of you body.
Awful product - I did not get any of the benefits that some people have been describing here at all, in fact the Dermawand made my skin worse - a lot worse! It did nothing at all for black heads or zits, instead it made zits a lot more aggressive, red, inflamed, swollen and most of all shiny. A lady on here said that when she gets zits now, she uses her Dermawand for the next 4 or 5 days or so and they will be gone. Erm well, yeah, my zits disappear too, if I leave them alone for 4 or 5 days! Not enough that it made zits worse, I got another really nasty side effect from my Dermawand, one night it made my entire face swell up and become terribly puffy. The swelling lasted for almost a week - needless to say, I haven't used it since! One more nasty thing about the Dermawand: when you use it, the air really starts smelling of ozone, just like in a badly aired photocopier centre (where they actually have laws that kind of stuff!) now that just cannot be healthy!
I have used the Derma wand for about 8 months....very pleased.I have tried many skin products....get reactions from many of them. I use the Derma wand - twice a day- with basic skin care products that do agree with my skin and have found incredible results. Many of the lines are gone....that were still there even with the use of the skin care products.The laugh lines....the lines around the eyes....have truly been lessened!!! My skin has an overall good look.
This is for Brenda, I have not used Derma Wand but I did pay $2,500 for a similar procedure with an MD. It was one of the most painful things I've ever endured. The point of this procedure is to "damage" the underlaying tissue to stimulate the growth of new collegan. I was not allowed to take any form of anti inflamitory (asprin,advil) for 6 months. There is an improvement in the texture of my skin, it's much thicker and less saggy. I'm 50yrs old. I would much rather pay less than $100 and get similar results. I'm going to try it. It may be painful but---No pain, No gain. Susan
To the lady who is having problems with the sensation of the derma wand. Please check it isn't broken, as if it is slightly cracked near the bulb it will be much sharper than it would normally be. I am just about to replace mine of 5 years as it has started to sting because it is broken and it is almost unbearable to use.
The Derma wand is a wonderfull product. it has reduced the lines round my mouth and redness on my cheeks and it makes my skin look really good even though I'm in my late 50's
I've been using my "Dermawand"every day(sometimes twice a day if I have the time)for the past three weeks and can honestly say I'm pleased with the results so far.I'm 62 years young but have always looked younger than my age.The laughter lines appeared about 3 years ago but are now fast decreasing.
For the first week I used the "Dermawand"I was a bit unsure about it as my skin erupted. I perservered thinking it might be drawing out the impurities and YES!!!HOORAH!!! I was right.I am so pleased that I invested £39.99+pp.'cos. I'm worth it
first time i used it, (last night) it actually got rid of those stubborn blackheads around my nose. It works better than those pore strips that were a huge deal way back. shrinks pores as you use it, I absolutely loved the results. it doesn't hurt. I zapped my b.f. too, he wasnt as impressed, like he ever looks at his face that close anyway! So far I am really impressed.
I have just started using the Derma Wand. I don't know if my face is particularly sensitive, and I am definitely not a wimp, but I do find it very unpleasant to use even on the lowest setting. I have only used it twice so far, and have had no miracle result, unlike some people. I cannot decide whether to keep it or not. The CD said that I would get used to the prickling sensation after a while, but I am not sure that is a good thing. Surely, in order to stop feeling the pain, it means that it will damage my nerve endings. I don't want to start damaging my skin. I wanted something that repaired it. It will be like when you lose the senstitivity in the tips of your fingers because you have picked up too many hot plates over the years. If I had seen an immediate result, I may have persevered but as I have not, I don't think I want to. Does anyone else agree? I shall update this review if I decide to keep it.
Just got mine and all I can say is FANTASTIC! I have fine lines around my eyes and deep lines on my brow and the No. "11's" between my brow and all disapeared in a matter of minutes. This was yesterday morning and I got up this morning to find my skin is still wrinkle free.Brilliant. Going to work it on my husband soon !!
One evening I was flicking through the innumerable channels on the TV. Kids fast asleep, hubby in bed and Mum left alone with sole control of the remote!
Whilst changing the channels between some equipment to flatten my tummy and give me a six pack (in just a few minutes a day!) and a food slicer that could slice a tomato paper thin (and your fingers if you weren't vigilant).. I stumbled across Ideal Worlds 'Pick of the Day'.
If your familiar with this channel you'll know that for a 24hr period from 9pm each day they offer their best sellers at a reduced price.
The dermawand was £19.99 plus P&P.
Ive had a quick scan online and to be honest I got an absolute bargain, because the cheapest I found it for was £65.00 + P&P on THANE.
The presenter (salesperson) spent an hour showing how to use the unit and the potential effects on your skin. There were loads of before and after shots of users who appeared to have benefited from the use of the wand.
At 1.00am I was feeling a little worse for wear and not at my most glamorous. I think I may even have been wearing my rose tinted specs!. So despite my usual restraint (6 sec abs, still in its box!!) I thought Id push the boat out and treat myself.
Well as with any new gadget the anticipation to use it was unbearable. I waited yet again for that time of night when I would be on my own, no kids and no Hubby to partake of the Michael.
The Derma wand is accompanied by an instruction video, a faux leather case for storage and an instruction brochure. The video was lost on me, as my kids have killed every VCR weve every had in the house, so I quickly scanned the brochure and was ready to begin.
There is a control knob on the unit and you are advised to start low and gradually increase the strength according to comfort levels. I set the control to four, anxious to increase the results but not ready to electrocute myself.
I plugged in the wand and the tip started to crackle and glow a kind of orangey colour, I rubbed the nib on the back of my hand, it tingled and crackled and I started to smell ozone. That crisp, fresh smell you get in the air just after a rain storm.
The brochure describes the derma wand as a complexion maintenance system that incorporates the best skin technology used by professionals .(and theyre letting me use it!!).
It encourages much needed circulation through natural stimulation and oxygenation producing beautiful vibrant looking skin.
It sends enriched oxygen to the skin area naturally purifying it and smoothing away lines, blemishes and wrinkles.
It helps to lift, firm and tone the skin producing a more youthful complexion.
On to the task in hand, I placed the nib around the corners of my eyes for a few seconds each, with an intermittent stare at the mirror to make sure it wasnt working too well and I wasnt achieving that rabbit in the headlights look that I associate with an overdone facelift.
When I was using the wand I can only describe the feeling as tiny little electric shocks which are not painful but uncomfortable if the setting is too high.
After the recommended 7-10 mins I unplugged the derma wand, put it safely away in its case and hid it in the back of MUMs cupboard.
I actually, used the derma wand religiously for about a fortnight, and although Im not sure if I did look five years younger the overall condition of my skin was much better.
I am prone to the odd zit now and again. Which is when the derma wand comes out now, a few days of intense blasting from it on the offending blemish is very effective.
At my peak of dermawanding I did have it up to an 8 setting which was bearable.
Unfortunately, I have never been a Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise kind of chick, so there was never a regime to add the derma wand to. But for the short time I did use it (as is recommended) I did feel my skin was fresher and more blemish free than usual. Possibly even a few less crows feet!
At £65 I wouldnt recommend it, but if you happen to stumble (as I did) across a special offer and a 30 day money back guarantee to boot, give it a whirl.
And if you only using when you have a breakout as I do now, it is definitely more effective than any of the blemish creams Ive used (you name them, and Ive used them.)
This revolutionary technology sends a gentle stream of impulses to renew dull skin and firm skin for a 'face-lift' appearance / It diffuses skin care products to make them more effective, decongests and reduces puffy eye congestion, re-textures and softens fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces pore size /
