FAQ Clareblend Mini Microcurrent

Can I use the Clareblend Mini and the Time Master Pro at the same time?

Many of our customers are using both these devices and achieving amazing results. The TMP is used 2 times a week for a duration of 10 minutes each day. The Clareblend Mini Microcurrent can be used daily. Even if only using the Mini for a 10-minute microcurrent treatment each day for your trouble spots (as opposed to treating the entire face at 45 minutes) customers see improvements with continued use. Results are cumulative.

On days you're using both devices, use the TMP first, followed by microcurrent. It is best not to use any device IMMEDIATELY AFTER microcurrent, so you don't undo the results you just achieved.

What conducting gel should be used with the Clareblend Mini Microcurrent?

It is important to choose an OIL-FREE conducting gel to use with the Clareblend Mini Microcurrent.

My preferred conducting gel is CBE Botanicals Hydrate + Conduct.

Will the Clareblend Mini give me as much lift as the Time Master Pro?

The MUSCLES are what benefits the most from Microcurrent by toning and lifting with deeper electrical stimulation. Toning MUSCLES with microcurrent will create longer lasting LIFT than the TMP. Microcurrent will also boost collagen and improve skin texture but it is not seen as fast as with the TMP.

You will get some lift with the Time Master Pro with continued use. The lift will not be as deep as you will get with Microcurrent.

The SKIN is what benefits the most from the ULTRASOUND in Time Master Pro. The cascading effect of sound waves creates an almost immediate plumping effect that lessens wrinkles, fine lines, and improves the texture of the skin and it boosts collagen production. With continued use the effects on the SKIN last longer and longer.

I don’t feel anything, how do I know if the Mini is working?

The Clareblend Mini Microcurrent is designed with a safe variable frequency, so it is rare to feel a sensation on the skin. It will not over stimulate by zapping the muscle. When the device is plugged in, it is designed to beep when current is flowing. It cannot beep, if current is not flowing.

Current is continuously flowing at variable amperages when the MINI is connected to a power source.

You can use a piece of aluminum foil to test the device. With the Mini plugged in, and without conducting gel, place Mini on aluminum foil with both probes touching the foil. You will hear a beep. Continue holding device in place, wait for at least 10 seconds to hear additional beeps. This indicates the Mini has current flowing.

A multimeter does not and cannot measure the high frequency pulses that the Mini generates. A better instrument to verify the operation of the Mini is to use an oscilloscope which must be done with a “patient” load placed across the two electrodes.

Why is the Mini beeping erratically?

If you are NOT following the LIFT and HOLD technique precisely the Mini will beep erratically. The LIFT and HOLD technique requires WAITING for a SINGLE beep after touching the electrodes to moist skin. After touching to moist skin, VERY SLOWLY glide the Mini while maintaining electrode contact with the skin during movement. At the end of the movement, HOLD the Mini in place until a DOUBLE beep is heard. If you lift the Mini before the DOUBLE beep, you will disrupt the beeping timing cycle and it will beep erratically.

To reset the timing unplug from power source and wait a minute before plugging it back in. If you're impatient, you might think something is wrong and lift it but the LIFT and HOLD technique requires a VERY SLOW movement process. The slow movement allows as much current as possible to penetrate as you move along the skin. HOLDING at the end of the movement concentrates the energy which helps to retrain the muscles to achieve lift and tone with continued use.

How often can I use the Mini?

The Clareblend Mini Microcurrent is safe to use on a daily basis. How long you use it depends on your needs and the number of areas you want to treat. A full face/neck/décolleté treatment takes 45 minutes but you can also use it for only 15 minutes daily in trouble spots. Not to worry though. The Clareblend Mini Microcurrent is very gentle and has a built in variable amperage to prevent muscle fatigue. This features is what sets the Clareblend Mini Microcurrent apart from other microcurrent devices on the market. To learn more, or to watch exclusive how-to videos, and to explore how others are using the Mini, I recommend joining the Christine Byer Beauty Club or spending some time watching videos on Youtube.

IMPORTANT: The Clareblend Mini Microcurrent is designed with a USB cord. It uses 5V output of power to operate. This means a USB device that delivers 2.5 Watts of power is sufficient to power this device. 

If you do not plug the Mini into a PC, tablet, or your phone for use, OR use a USB to wall plug adapter, we recommend a POWER BANK with these specifications (5V) to power the Clareblend Mini Microcurrent.  

Do NOT use FAST CHARGING phone chargers to power the Mini. You will burn up the device by doing so and void your warranty.
