NuFace Trinity Reviews



NuFace Trinity has been gaining popularity since it received a rave review from The Doctors. NuFace Trinity, known as the “5 Minute Face-Lift”, is a facial toning system that combines soft wave micro-current technology (also known as Micro-current Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation)  through the two globe-shaped nobs. Does NuFace Work? To tackle that question, lets look at how micro-current technology works.

What are the Best Skin Care Products of 2019?

Here’s how it works. Micro-current uses a low level of electrical current to stimulate ATP production which drives production of collagen and elastin. However, there is little research that suggest that micro-current technology helps increase collagen production. Micro-current technology is known to tone facial muscles but we are yet to see a solid clinical study into its anti aging benefits. The technology has available for more than 50 years, NuFace has just packaged it nicely. NuFace Trinity is very useful in preparing the skin for deeper skin care product penetrating. In our opinion, this is the most effective use of NuFace.

The range includes NuFace Collagen Booster, NuFace Nourisher Infusion Serum, NuFace Smoother Infusion Serum, NuFace Lifter Infusion Serum and NuFace Optimizing Mist. These skin care products can be used in combination with NuFace Trinity. For one thing, it makes skin care products more powerful. NuFace recommends combining the treatment with one of its skin care products. However, we have not evaluated NuFace skin care products just yet. The research supporting this is more robust, and it points the way to a powerful skin care tool.

NuFace is gentle and you can barely feel anything when gliding the nobs over the face. In fact, it feels like a gentle massage. NuFace can be used anywhere on the face or body, including the cheeks, around the eyes, forehead, neck, tummy, arms and thighs. Does micro-current technology work? Micro-current technology is known to help increasing absorption of nutrients. Therefore, NuFace is an excellent device to use before applying skin care serums. NuFace Trinity is the only microcurrent devices FDA-cleared for facial stimulation. The treatment is extremely safe to use and we did not notice any side effects during our one month review. Please consult the user manual for side effects, contraindications, usage instructions and suggestions.

NuFace has a long history of working with micro-current technology. The founder Carol Cole has began working with this type of technology for over 30 years. NuFace is available through, Amazon, SkinStore, Gilt, Norstrom, Sephora, BeautyBar, Bliss World, DrugStore, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. NuFace is also available at various Medical Spas, Beauty Salons and other aesthetic providers. The cost of NuFACE Trinity with Trinity Wrinkle Remover  is $450. NuFace also offers refurbished NuFACE Trinity devices for $249. offers free delivery on orders over $75. Nuface has been featured on The Doctors, Today Show, Extra, Rachel Ray Show, Good Morning Arizona and Extra. NuFACE Trinity

Our review leads us to conclude that NuFACE Trinity is a good tool in the fight against time when combined with the right skin care products. Thank you for taking the time to read this review of NuFace. I’d love to know what you think about NuFace. Please feel free to share your NuFace review below. Hope you enjoy NuFace, if you buy it.

    I have been using Nuface Trinity off and on for two months and I love the results. I started with the 15 minute routine. Isaw immediate improvement in tree quality of my skin tone, the size of my pores, my smile lines, forehead, eye area, neckline and jawline. I didn’t even know my neckline and jawline had issues until I saw the improvement. I also see an amplified result from the skincare I was already using.

    My skin is clear, glowing, and the clock has been reversed!

    Then, I took a bit of a break because I had a baby. Despite NuFace’s claim that results are temporary, I saw the results last. About six weeks from the last use, I was enjoying the results.

    Now, I use NuFace whenever I can (about once every few weeks) and I’m still pleased and surprised by the results!!

    I recommend this product to everyone!

    Just be sure to use enough gel. I use AquaSonic gel. If you go that route ( aloe is another option), just be sure to wash all the product off before applying your regular skincare treatment.

    SAME! I haven’t reacted to their new formulation, and have success with their “Gold” line–its just so much more expensive so I usually save it to use with my Jenu, whose micro current conductor was likewise allergenic. I now use a pure aloe jelly and add salt for conduction (just add a little at a time because it liquefies the gel).

  • Stephanie 10.11.17 Reply

    Wow – this happened to me as well. I wasn’t sure what it was from. Red, swollen face and rash. I do have sensitive skin but the reaction was the worst I ever had. Wasn’t sure if it was from the electrical current. Have you tried the device with just aloe?

  • Lisa from UK 09.02.17 Reply

    I purchased my NuFace Trinity device 30 days ago and have to say I’m really pleased with the results. I don’t want to turn back the hands of time but just have good skin for my age (I’m 46).
    The first week I committed to the 15 mins per day and the “holds” that are recommended. There was a clear difference in laughter lines and forehead wrinkles (11 lines about the nose), after 2 weeks I began to notice cheekbones were much defined ( I didn’t have any before!) The gel provided ran out very quickly so I bought some organic Aloe Vera gel from the local health store and this has been a much cheaper replacement.
    Ensure you apply plenty of lubrication to your skin ( as per the instructions). When Ihave been in a hurry and not applied enough gel there there have been red marks where the nodules have been held and a strong electrical urgent sensation therefore I ensure I follow the manufacturers instructions! I look forward to using it as it’s such a relaxing sensation.
    I’m now at day 31 and people are commenting on his “well” I look and my husband has asked if I’ve lost weight so there’s an obvious difference that people just can’t say why or How!
    I am so pleased with the results I am going to buy the wrinkle reducer attachment. I can’t praise it enough. It does just what the company claims.

    Use caution when using this product! The gel contains methylisothiazolinone a perservative that many are allergic to.

    Made me break out in hives and my eyes are swollen up like balloons!!! Going today for a steroid shot!!!

  • Susan 06.11.17 Reply

    Bought the nuface and used it for 4-5 days and suddenly got a headache on my left side !!!! Never had this problem before!!!
    Do not use this product it causes side effects !!!!! Very dangerous!!

  • kim 05.17.17 Reply

    I just tried the “Good Clean Love personal lubricant Almost Naked” gel with the Nuface and it left my face really red. I am hoping its not a burn. Will monitor. If you do not react to the gel sold with the product, stick with it- you dont know how ur skin will react to something else. Otherwise, Nuface does help w/ lifting, very subtle changes. If you are young, i recommend not smoking and eating a plant based low sugar diet as well as waering SPF always to keep your skin looking good. For the rest of us, I guess we will do what we can. I am 31 btw but 12 yrs of smoking and not the best eating habits in my 20’s are really taking a toll w/ sagging especially jowls and undereyes.

    I have the NuFace Mini. First of all, I had a reaction to the gel in the silver tube. It made my skin on my face very bumpy and scabbed a little. I changed to the firming gel in the gold tube and the bumps immediately went away. I’m noticing a difference in my cheek and jaw area. It is less saggy and more firm, so I’m pleased about that. However, approximately a week ago I started experiencing vertigo. I used to suffer from vertigo years ago and then it went away on it’s own. I don’t know if this device can cause dizziness or not. I guess I’ll stop using it for awhile and see if the vertigo goes away. I really like the results of the NuFace Mini and was originally planning on upgrading to the Trinity, but for now I have to determine if I’m experiencing side effects from this device.

    Bottom line the product did not measure up to the claims made by NuFace manufacturer. It is a waste of good money. I have decided the only effective way to diminish wrinkles and brown spots is with the facial peels and laser treatments done in dermatologist and board certified plastic surgeons’ offices. Don’t waste your money on these false claims.

    Got the NuFace Mini unit 6 months ago, Used it faithfully (the 15 minute procedure) every day for 3 months and got minimal results at best. I now only use it every other day 15 minute procedure only because I paid for this thing and feel if I don’t use it, its a bigger waste of money. I am 60 years old and have the lines from nose to mouth and a saggy chin area-this has done nothing to improve those issues. It has very slightly improved the horizontal lines on my forehead. I think this probably works for younger women who have faster collagen turnover. Wish they made a stronger one for us more mature ladies. I did not get skin discoloration from this, but I use a nice layer of the gel every time. Do not skimp on the gel.

  • Eva 03.18.16 Reply

    My Nuface is working great! I only am using it since 3 days and I already saw a difference upon first use. My skin is lifted, more taut and more rosy and has a nice glow. I hope I will get the promised results after 2 months. I bought it because I don’t have a firm jaw line. I am 41 years only and have combination skin. My pore size already seems to have diminished.
    I bought the LED attachment and I am curious to try it out!! You do need enough gel on the microcurrent prongs otherwise it will sting.

  • Emily 11.17.15 Reply

    Reading the mixed reviews, Here is what i conclude, It does tone skin, but you need to find a method that works. i am only 4 days in but do see some slight results thus far.

    Here is what is working for me. 1) Clean face, right out of the shower (“out” being the key word). 2) Gel is a must! use a healthy amount I could feel it when i hit a spot without gel, (i believe the ladies below when they said it left a mark). so GEL, GEL, Gel… 3) use the internet instructions. Those instruction say keep the device moving up and down, back and forth, for 5 seconds, 12 different areas repeat twice. I would not follow any instructions that recommend holding it in one place for an extended period. 4) Wipe off excessive gel and complete your regular serum/moisturizing routine. (i use Epicuran 4-step on Amazon, make sure, you look up pictures to get the real stuff, like NuFace there are imitators on Amazon).

    My experience thus far. i will keep an eye out for discoloration and submit another response if it happens!

    I have been using the NuFace electric stimulation device for a year. The sagging that was starting to occur along my jaw line has reversed. I am 57 and my jaw line is as taught as it was at 30. I practice TM meditation twice daily for 37 years and this prevented forehead wrinkles. However, the overall effect of 57 years of gravitational pull was causing some overall forehead sagging. No longer. Gone are little skin sags above my eyes from the tightening of forehead muscles. This product is amazing. I hope it doesn’t damage my brain in the process of making me look more youthful. I experienced terrible irritation and breakouts when using the NuFace gel, so I tried an aloe gel. Not good – it dried quickly and did not provide a good glide. I switched to a an all-natural, very smooth gel called “Good Clean Love Personal Lubricant Almost Naked” :). Great on both ends! I am curious about the trinity LED attachment, how long it lasts, burn risk, etc. and have not found any good reviews of it. Anyone else?

    Good day,
    I am scanning these reviews of nuface, encouraging aside from the sprinkling of reviews where users like yourself unfortunately suffered hyper-pigmentation. I can’t help but ask, did you consistently used electro-conductive gel with the products? As a scientist, I can say that certainly would lead to tissue injury/hyperpigmentation

  • Leah 06.14.15 Reply

    I love the results I’m seeing with NuFace. It arrived two days ago, and my face is lifted and wrinkles diminished. I hope I don’t encounter negative results shared in prior replies. So far, great!

  • Lee 04.28.15 Reply

    The prong attachment burned my face horribly. Serious burns that started about 12 hours after the treatment at Canyon Ranch spa boutique in the Palazzo Hotel in Vegas. Had a 5 minute demo and have been suffering a burned face for 4 days. It is getting worse instead of better each day. Looks like I was in a fire.

    Using mini Nuface faithfully 15 min every evening. Notice no difference at all. Bought it from Amazon. Wonder if it’s the real deal or fake machine after reading these reviews !

  • Sally 02.28.15 Reply

    Received this for Christmas . I do see results with the lift aspect cut now have noticed areas of hyper pigmentation where the machine is used . One step forward and two back. I will no longer be using this . Such a shame because it was working with skin lift . Once the cell damage is done , hyper pigmentation is difficult , if not impossible, to reverse

    I have been using Nuface for over a year and love how it makes my skin feel. It even seems to help the occasional sinus headache. However, I now have two slightly darker stripes on my left cheek that match the track of the orbs on the machine. On the right cheek I have a dark spot at the “landing zone” where I stop the upward stroke. It’s sad because I had a nice even skin tone before. So far I haven’t been able to get the spots to fade. If anyone has a suggestion I’d love to hear it.

  • Elaine 07.20.14 Reply

    I have used the NuFace device for nearly a year and it really does work. I have not experienced any of the negative side effects mentioned here. The one thing I will say is that it works well, but only if you use it regularly (3x/week is good). Sometimes it’s hard to do that, so consistency is the key!

  • Marisa 07.12.14 Reply

    Contrary to many other reviews of Nuface trinity, I have benefitted by using it. It did suit my skin. It is really nice. I like the effect a lot. It has given a face a lift in just five minutes, just as claimed in the advertisement.

    I recently purchased the NuFace trinity device thinking it would be a great addition to my skin care regimen. I’m glad I took before and after photos to realize what happened to my skin. After using it for 2 weeks exactly as the company instructs, I noticed circular, brown spots, (the size of the metal orbs on the device) in the exact areas they tell you to place the device and where they tell you to hold it for the advanced holds; i.e. at the temples, at the brow line, in the center of forehead above the brow, etc. I phoned the company and spoke to 3 different people. One lady told me the NuFace device was bringing them up to the surface and that they would go away. I am a licensed, practicing esthetician for 20 years now so I really pay close attention to my skin and honestly, this device caused my skin to look older after 2 weeks of usage. Another side effect was that my skin felt sunburned for several days after using it. I even noticed spots that looked burned on my cheeks. One of those spots healed and has left a brown mark. I stopped using the device but the damage is done. I saw that another lady left an online review about how she experienced brown spots after using NuFace too, so you can add me to that list. What a shame. I thought it would make my skin prettier and the opposite was true for me.

  • Liz 06.27.14 Reply

    I recently had a facial, complimented with a NuFace treatment. Since that time I have had several very uncomfortable sensations where my equilibrium is off. Worse first thing in the morning. I can’t be certain this is the cause, but the only connection I can make. Would be interested in knowing if anyone else has experienced.

  • debbie 05.26.14 Reply

    Hi. I bought the nuface trinity with the wrinkle removing led light attachment,
    both game me frontal / eye / sinus headaches that diminished after stopping use. It works, but being ill all day nearly every day to get a few less wrinkles and slightly lifted skin just wasn’t worth it in the end. Shame.

  • Susan Scott 05.17.14 Reply

    I bought this NuFACE because I had a series of strokes in the past year that made the corners of my mouth droop down. It gave me a mean expression, not good for a grandmother. This thing has tightened my muscles back up to virtually normal. It also has improved the rest of my face. I look cheerful again. I use it each evening and sometimes in the mornings if I have the time. If you make a firm commitment to it and use this on a regular basis, then it absolutely does what it says it will do. I bough hospital grade electrode gel on eBay for five dollars a huge nine ounce tube and it works great with the NuFACE.

  • Teresa Haddad 05.03.14 Reply

    I used Nuface Trinity today for the first time and had amazing results. My skin looked as though I had a face lift. When my husband arrived home from work, the very first thing he said to me was, “You look good.” And he is not someone who easily gives complements. At dinner, he asked me if I had lost weight. I then told him about Nuface Trinity. I am very excited about my new toy. Especially because it really works!

  • Sandra 11.05.13 Reply

    I never leave reviews but the manufacturers of Nuface have a winner. This is a really good device that will help make you skin glow. I don’t how it works or what it does but the lights leave your skin looking healthy. I think it might help reduce the size of the pores.

  • Willow 10.23.13 Reply

    That is why you should not buy beauty products from third party sites. Go with the original manufacturer even if it costs more because you know you are getting authentic.

  • Natalie 10.10.13 Reply

    I bought NuFace Trinity on Ebay and I think I got an imitation. I contacted NuFace and they said they cannot help me. The only thing I can do is throw it out because it is some cheap Chinese imitation. I am very disappointed I did this just to save $50 and ended up loosing $200.

  • Melissa 09.05.13 Reply

    Just bought NuFace, actually went for the rebuild version as it is exactly identical to the original but more cost effective. Looking forward to getting the device and using it for the first very time.

  • Cindy 08.28.13 Reply

    I would love to try NuFace Tinity. I use Clarisonic and I have had similar treatments at the beauticians but would love to be able to do it myself daily. I will give NuFace Trinity a go as soon as they have a promotion to reduce the coast.

  • Lucia 08.22.13 Reply

    I have been using NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device for 4 months and this is one area i will not scrimp on. I was paying around $100 per session of Omnilux and Gentlewaves and this does the same thing. I have not seen a reduction in wrinkles but my skin looks clearer and smoother and I just bought it recently. The before and after photos are exaggerative but apart from that I think it is a great device.

  • London 08.14.13 Reply

    I was considering buying Facemaster but I just read your NuFace and LightStim review. Which is the best option for wrinkles? It looks like Lightstim is more affordable but is it less effective? The all look promising but comparable. Even the before and after photos are similar. It looks like you have not written a review on Facemaster yet. Is that because it is not as good as NuFace Trinity?
