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.

I am married with two grown up children and worked as a home help for nearly 20 years. I had to give up work due to bad health and now enjoy being able to take things easier for the first time in my life. I can't get out and about as much as I used to so the computor has become a useful tool to me for shoppping and generally filling in time.
