I’m going to take some time here and go over the Derma Wand sales pitch and break it down and hopefully determine that everything they talk about is 100% legit.
I more than most people know how annoying it is to read something about a product, then after making the purchase, later find that the product/service just did not deliver on their promises. On that note let’s break down the Derma Wand…
What exactly do they promise?
So after carefully reading through the things the device promises to deliver on, I was able to come up with several different important aspects worth talking about.
The first one is that it promises to show results after 3 minutes of use. This of couse isn’t a lie, however you have to also take into consideration your own skin. 3 minutes is the minimum it can take to visably reduce rinkles and lines, however for the majority of us using the Derm Wand it’s going to take a little extra every day(for me 10 minutes).
Of course this isn’t too bad when you think about it, so in a way Derma Wand does deliver on their promise of 3 minutes in certain cases, but just to let you know you may require a little extra longer depending on your own skin.
Just on this note, most people miss seeing the section on the Derma Wand site where they mention that “deep wrinkles will not disappear overnight”. I think it’s good to hear that every once and while. There’s nothing more annoying then having to hear a bunch of hype about how you’ll be instantly cured overnight, when in reality, WE KNOW IT’S NOT TRUE!! So hats off to Derma Wand for mentioning that on their site.
The second thing I wanted to talk about was their 30 day money back guarantee and whether or not they deliver on their promise. Of course I never sent back my Derma Wand so I couldn’t do an exact test, however I spoke to a few people in some Skin Care forums and asked them if they delivered on their promise and they said they did so that was good enough for me. PS. those people I found out later only sent back their Derma Wands as a test to see if they would get their money back and they also work for competing brands. I reckon they were trying to catch them out so they could blog about it in my opinion
The final thing I wanted to talk about is whether or not their line of skin care products combined with the Derma Wand, really equals up to a cost of $240.
I spent a fair bit of time researching into similar skin care products listed in their product specifications and the overwhelming majority of combinations I was able to come up with actually cost MORE than $240. I know I was baffled as well but that’s the results I was able to come up with.
The other thing I didn’t mention either is that you can always use similar products in conjunction with the Derma Wand for better results if you find their range to be less superior then the one you’re using right now, so it’s no biggie.
As you can probably already tell, I’m a pretty big supporter of the Derma Wand. Take it as you will, I just love it and I wouldn’t try anything else!

Rejuvenates Skin's Deeper Tissue
For the treatment of wrinkles and other age- and sun-related skin problems, we have a number of non-invasive options available to us. Among the most effective are those that stimulate the body's natural healing response by delivering heat or light to the skin's deeper layers. Radiofrequency rejuvenation uses heat (the radiofrequency energy).
The main goal of radiofrequency skin rejuvenation is to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin (the dermis and cutaneous layers) while leaving the skin's surface (the epidemis) relatively untouched. Collagen fibers are essential for firm, youthful-looking skin, but they tend to degenerate as we age, mainly because of overexposure to the sun.
In addition to stimulating new collagen, radiofrequency treatment also causes some contraction of the skin, thus tightening it. Although you'll notice the treatment's tightening effects immediately, the more significant improvements will occur gradually over a period of several weeks or months as the new collagen forms.

Prototype 37-C Scam Alert
November 10, 2009 by: KarlaSutton
Filed under: Anti Aging
If you are looking for an anti aging cream, I’d suggest you stay FAR AWAY from Prototype 37-C. This company has red flags raised all around it’s marketing efforts, and I was recently alerted to a very deceitful practice they are employing that is getting them in a mountain of legal trouble.
It’s been pointed out to me that the company buys the domain names of many of it’s competitors, only they buy the .org extension. What this does is essentially allow them to trick consumers of their product into clicking on the link, where the company bashes their competition. Pretty bad ethics, right?
Let me show you an example…..
Visit EliteSerum.org. You will see that this site is owned by a gentlemen named Chris Kuchin, who lives at the following address:
1565 North University Avenue #32
Provo, Utah 801-592-3549
Now, take a long look at that site. He uses obvious slander and deceit to BASH the Elite Serum. Any0ne who knows about Elite Serum can attest to it’s ability to cure the many symptoms that go hand in hand with aging. The website ONLY promotes a product that Kuchin is obviously affiliated with or owns himself, the Prototype 37-C. If you look up the information behind who owns Prototype37-c.com, you will see it’s none other than Chris Kuchin himself.
I was tipped off to this by people in the skin care industry, and I was told that the legal team of Elite Serum has found out that once before this Prototype37-C company was involved in legal action, last time involving another leading skin care company.
Upon doing some research into this Chris Kuchin character, we found out some interesting information. He is a student at Bringham Young University, living at the Glenwood Apartments.
I urge everyone out there to avoid this scam operation entirely. Do you really think a scamming college kid has the answer to getting rid of your dark circles, eye bags, and eye wrinkles?

This company is run by thieves and lairs. If Chris Kuckin is head of it then I lay all the blame at his feet. Is this what BYU students are learning, that it’s okay to make money off your fellow man any way you can as long as you make it and give a good portion to the church? I have heard this before, but didn’t know whether to believe it or not.
And last but not least:

Here’s another one. Looks like they just bought up a ton of domain names and created fake sites to sell their product.
Found even more..
I simply love this facial tool. Started using it about a week ago and doing it daily and I must say it does exactly what it is suppose to do. My facial lines are greatly deminishing especially the forehead and the nasolabial folds. I use my favorite skincare line and it makes it work so much better! My face has that uplift appearance and the eye area is also lifted. This thing is AMAZING! I bought this with the notion to try somthing new and see how this works knowing that I can return it and get a refund. WELL--I am keeping this!! It is easy to hold on to and really not that time consuming or hard to use like other facial gadgets that I have bought in the past. None of you ladies (or MEN) will be disappointed. HTH!! By the way, I am in my mid 50's and have been mistaken to look like thirty something--so I must be doing something right!!

Hi Shiso,. i actually own and use a Dermawand and i think they are AMAZING and well worth the few miniutes it takes a day. My Mother also has a Dermawand and we both love ours. Did you know that apart from keeping your skin wonderfully free on spots, you can use it to lift and tone your facial muscles? You can also use it to apply your moisturisers so they get into the skin deaper and its brill for using after applying your toning and mositurising or if you have cellulite for applying that too. It comes with a full instructional video. I particularly LOVE the dermawand for using underneath my eyes (on the lowest setting) it gets rid of puffyness and really makes your skin glow.The only problem i have is i don't always use it every day and i should as it;s well worth the time and effort.
I give the derma wand full marks! Love it love it love it!
PS, it not junk and Kim i was gonna tell you all about it!!!

I have been using my dermawand for a few weeks now and love it! I'm 55 years and was told by a plastic surgeon whom I saw two weeks ago for a consultation that my skin and neckline are so firm an taunt I looked in my thirties! I was thrilled because I have not had anything done to my face like Botox or plastic surgery. My co-worker ten years younger than I also asked me how I managed to have such firm skin. I told her it was genetics, but seriously it's the dermawand!

I have both the derma wand And zeno. I got the zeno first and then a few months later got the derma wand. The zeno does use heat to kill the bacteria, and the derma wand...I hope I am correct in understanding this, but I apologize in advance if this is not technically correct...the derma wand uses tiny electrical pulses to deliver oxygen into your pores which also kills bacteria. Again, not sure if that is that's exactly right, but it's my best guess based on what I have experienced and read.
Both products, in my opinion, are very effective but I do prefer the derma wand because of its other uses. It has greatly improved the ciculation in my face, helping to provide a nice almost rosy glow. I also find it helps to make the products I use on my face absorb more quickly. Let me know if you have any questions regarding either!
I have not noticed the same firming on my neck, so I am going to spend 3 minutes on my neck alone and see what happens. It's not the moisturizer, since I am using my same one - it's the wand. I am going to try it on cellulite and see what happens.

Welcome to my Derma Wand blog.
I know there are almost 2 million Derma Wand users out there! I am just thrilled that you have found my product a solution to your complexion problems.
I created Derma Wand quite by accident. When I was in my mid 40's, and a single parent raisng a teenage daughter and a 9 year old boy, my life was stessed and I really got down sometimes. My face went down too. Yuck.
I had been working as a cosmetician and knew the remarkable difference a quick treatment of High Frequency would give to my tired and sad looking face. It would give me such a quick face lift.
I started looking for a smaller machine, because my spa unit was too large to take home and bring back. There were no portable units. I asked a friend of mine that was an electronic wizard, if he could look at my spa unit and somehow make it fit into something that I could have at home. Initially the derma wand components were inside of an empty flashlight. So, now that I was using high frequency on my face everyday before I went to work and once at night after work, I started to keep this lifted look for longer periods of time. The more I used it the better things shaped up! I realized that using high frequency in smaller doses regularily was doing more for my saggy skin than a monthly half hour treatment.
Well of course people started to wonder if I had a face lift. Now I was really on to something. Customers started bringing in their old flashlights and having Derma Wand components installed.
Then I decided to give those components a new body. I had about 500 made up, due to the high volume of requests for this lifting device. Other salons were ordering them, and then one fell into the hands of a buyer at the Canadian Shopping Channel. She loved what it did for her skin problems, and found me. Next thing I am on the air and it just went from there.
I think the Derma Wand became so successful, because the bottom line is, IT WORKS.
No matter what the problem is, Derma Wand, just like the commercial high frequency units, delivers oxygenation and super stimulates. It only makes sense that more results will happen, because you are doing more for your skin.
I didn't dream up some concept and put a good story to it. This technology has always been a favoured tool in our Professional Skin Industry. Creams, Serums, Lotions, they are great and hydrate your skin. Some even super exfoliate away dead looking skin. But they are only liquids.
THEY SIMPLY HAVE THEIR LIMITS.
Once you have lines, wrinkles, saggy skin, pitted skin, bags, dull tired looking skin, it is too late for any serum or cream to make a difference. AND WE ALL KNOW IT.
There is always plastic surgery, but the demand for scalpel free and no down time improvements, means you need more than serums. You do need some good skin care, but hydration is the best you can get out of these products no matter how much they cost. I know, I have worked with the absolute best lotions as do most professionals. But we always use that high frequency to make you look fresh, toned, lifted and youthful.
It's not magic, it's pure science. Look at that picture below this blog. YES THAT IS ME AND THAT IS THE ORGINAL PICTURE TAKEN OF MYSELF AFTER USING DERMA WAND FOR 3 MONTHS ON JUST ONE SIDE OF MY FACE. It should be obvious to you which side looks Derma Wanded! I was totally thrilled to see these results.
If you have the Derma Wand and you need some extra tips, let me know. I will answer everyone. Or if you would like to post your Derma Wand experience, please do so. I would love to hear from you.
Until next time
Derma Wand does the Job!
Advantages: Improves skin tone and complexion
Disadvantages: Bit hard to find
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.
