While considered signs of a life well-lived, some people might want to soften the appearance of wrinkles and firm up their facial skin, which tends to lose elasticity and collagen as we age. And thanks to innovations in skin care, we no longer have to spend countless dollars and hours at the spa to lift, sculpt, and tone our faces. We can treat our skin to some TLC right in the comfort of our own homes.

Enter, the Nuface Trinity ($339), a handheld microcurrent facial toning device that’s beloved by celebrities and beauty enthusiasts (including W+G editors) alike. Using low-level electrical current (don't worry, it’s low), it stimulates the facial muscles and, with consistent use, is said to result in a tighter and more lifted appearance. Best of all, it takes all of five minutes per day to use at home, with visible results in as little as one month.

Nuface, Trinity Starter Kit — $339.00

Includes the microcurrent facial toning device, a hydrating leave-on primer, and a charging cord and cradle.

Don’t believe us? A quick scroll through the Nuface reviews will uncover hundreds of happy customers singing its praises for stopping sagging in its tracks. The machine’s gentle waves are a game-changer for firming skin, tightening up areas that have lost elasticity, while smoothing texture and reducing the look of fine lines.

I have been using it every day for almost a month and my skin looks tighter, more firm, and less saggy, one 45-year-old customer shares on the brand’s website. Others echo the sentiment, shocked by how well the Nuface Trinity actually works—not just another gimmicky gadget. Since I turned 50, my face just looks saggy and makes me feel and look older than I am. But since I started using the Nuface, the lines on my forehead are greatly reduced and my cheeks are lifted, writes another customer. I use it at least five times a week in the evenings while watching my favorite shows. I find it a calming way to relax before bed... If you make the commitment to use it, you will see visible results.

As mentioned above, most Nuface users report better results with consistent use. Luckily, it’s ridiculously easy—and more importantly—safe to use at home. (You can use it while watching TV, reading a book, and even in bed before you fall asleep—talk about convenient.) To use, simply apply a thick layer of conductive hydrating gel (which is included in the Trinity Device Starter Kit ($339)), fire it up, then glide the device along your jawline, cheeks, forehead, and neck in upward motions. The device will emit a beep to indicate when to move onto the next spot and, when you’re done, you can pop it on its charging cradle until you’re ready to get your buzz on again. It’s that simple and, what’s more, customers have reported that the process is painless—as it should be when used correctly.

With the high praise the Nuface Trinity has received, it’s clear that it’s worth the investment, even if it does set you back a hefty $339. (Still low considering an hour facial at the spa can cost anywhere from $150-$500 these days.)

But it’s still expensive. If you’re not ready to drop that kind of cash, check out the Nuface Fix Starter Kit ($159), which is significantly less expensive and ideal for targeting tinier, often overlooked areas on your face. Or, consider the Nuface Mini ($209), which is a smaller version of the Trinity but works just as hard.
