At 39 years old, I’m starting to deal with small wrinkles and loss of firmness with my skin. I know that these are all signs of aging that I can’t avoid, but I certainly would like to delay them as much as possible. So, when I was contacted to review the Silk’n FaceFX Red Light Heat device, I definitely wanted to see if it would work for my skin. Since you have to be 6-months post-Accutane to use the device, I had to delay my review a bit before I got started.
This is the type of review that takes a while to really determine effectiveness, so I’ll be posting two reviews on the Silk’n FaceFX – check in later in March for my second and final review.
The Silk’n FaceFX comes with a charger/holder, so I started by charging the device. Once it was fully charged, I used it on a clean face with no makeup or skin cream. The device uses “fractional light”, which means that it’s effective, without being uncomfortable. While using the device, I definitely feel the warm heat, but that’s it. It actually feels great – especially in the cold winter. After using it for a few minutes, a fan kicks on to cool the device down, preventing overheating.
It’s recommended that you use the Silk’n FaceFX for about 15 minutes at a time, three times per week. I generally use it while watching tv, so the times goes by quickly. I use it all over my face and neck.
So, how does the Silk’n FaceFX work? Well, it’s still early to tell, but I have noticed a few positive benefits. After my first use, I had a slight amount of peeling – nothing bothersome, but enough to know that it was working. I definitely notice that my skin is more radiant, and am confident that I’ll see more long-term benefits with more usage.
