_____________________________

Q: In What Order are Multiple Devices to be Used?

When using multiple devices, begin with the Anma. Using the Anma first will release fascia, begin circulation, and warm up the muscles. See DOWNLOAD for full instructions on using the Anma.

Next in a device routine is LED. If you are using the Time Master Pro, you will not need to use an additional LED device on those days. If you want to use more LED on the day(s) you are using the TMP, do so at the opposite time of day you're using the TMP. In other words, if you use TMP in the morning, use an LED device in the evening or vice versa.  See DOWNLOAD for full instructions on using the Glow Younger TriLight LED.

The Time Master Pro (TMP) would follow the Anma – The TMP is NEVER to be used more than twice weekly for a maximum of 10 minutes for the entire treatment to avoid overworking the skin.  See DOWNLOAD for full instructions on using the Time Master Pro.

The Clareblend Mini Microcurrent will be the final step of your device routine. When using microcurrent in a device regimen, it should always be performed last. This will ensure the lift microcurrent creates stays lifted.  See DOWNLOAD for full instructions on using the Clareblend Mini.

Q: What Conducting Gel Should I Use?

It depends on the device you’re using.

A water-based GEL *must* be used with the TMP. Gel is required to allow sound waves to penetrate the skin. You should *never* use water only with the TMP as water will NOT conduct sound waves – and you will burn up your device. It must be used with a water-based GEL. When the gel is almost absorbed, you must reapply more GEL, not water to continue using the TMP. 

GENTLY wipe off any extra conducting gel with a warm damp cloth and finish with other products, including prescriptions, and moisturizer, etc.

Microcurrent uses electrical waves and requires nothing more than mineral water to conduct. Using water will require A LOT of REWETTING because the skin MUST stay moist during the ENTIRE treatment. You may also use water-based GEL with microcurrent. Gel typically stays wetter longer.

Do NOT use oil or oil-based products because oil will not conduct and will corrode probes.

GENTLY wipe off any extra conducting gel with a warm damp cloth and finish with other products, including prescriptions, and moisturizer, etc.

Q: Do I Have to Begin with a Clean Face?

Always cleanse the face prior to using the first device in your routine to remove makeup and grime. If using multiple devices, skin only needs to be cleansed before using the first device in your routine.

Q: Can I Use Devices Anywhere on the FACE?

You may use these devices on any area of the face, avoiding the eyeball. You can use on upper lid, eyebrow and under eye. 

Q: Can I Use Devices on the NECK Area?

Yes, but it is recommended to avoid the thyroid area on the neck to prevent over-stimulation of the thyroid. Consult a physician if you have any questions about using this device if you have thyroid sensitivity.

Q: Can I Use Devices Anywhere on the BODY?

The TMP and Clareblend Mini Microcurrent were manufactured to be used on the small muscle’s and skin of the face, neck, and décolleté. Use on any other body parts will take much longer to achieve results due to larger muscles groups and will cause abnormal wear and tear on the device voiding your warranty. The Anma and LED may be used on other areas of the body. 

Q: Can I Use Serums During the Treatment?

You may apply serums prior to treatment. Allow serums to completely absorb before you begin. The benefit of using your favorite serums prior to a treatment is ultrasound and microcurrent will penetrate them deeper as the wet conducting medium continues to push them into the skin through a process called Mesoporation.

Q: Can I Use my Favorite Oils?

NEVER use oils or oil-based products with the TMP, LED, or Microcurrent to avoid damaging the device and voiding your warranty. Oil can be used for glide with the Anma but make sure the oil is completely absorbed or removed by cleansing prior to using the TMP, LED, or Microcurrent.

Q: Can I Use Water as a Conducting Medium?

Microcurrent will conduct with nothing more than mineral water or water-based mists, but GEL will stay wetter longer and is nourishing to the skin. You CANNOT use water as a conducting medium with the TMP. The TMP requires a water-based conducting GEL.

Q: Where do I Begin the Movements?

Follow the movement guide included with the Clareblend Mini Microcurrent device for effective lifting techniques. The TMP can be used in whatever area you want to treat using simple circular movements beginning at the décolleté and working up, or starting at forehead and working down to the décolleté.

Q: What are the Contraindications for these Devices?

See the website product description page for a full list of contraindications.

Help! Which Serum is Right for Me?
Help! Which Serum is Right for Me?

April 16, 2021

I know it can be challenging to decide what serum is right for your skin so I've created this article to help.

Start by choosing one or two of your biggest concerns and then choose the product(s) that contain the active ingredients to treat your top two concerns. If you have several issues, considering using different serums on alternative days, or using one in the AM and other one in the PM. Just don't pile on too many at one time as some could counter the other. For example, don't use a peptide serum with an AHA serum because the acidic pH of AHAs is undesirable for peptides. 

Let's get started so you can start choosing a serum right for you.

Help! Which Eye Product Should I Use?
Help! Which Eye Product Should I Use?

April 02, 2021

One of the first places we begin to show aging on the face is the eye area. So it makes sense to be vigilant with skincare for the eyes.

Many things affect the appearance of the skin around our eyes. For example, failure to wear sunglasses year-round to prevent the squinting that can increase crow's feet, to applying eye care products with a tugging and pulling instead of a patting technique.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, dehydration, and water-retention from too much sodium in the diet are also factors affecting the skin around the eyes.

But don't be discouraged, there are many things we can do to take great care of the eyes.
