Bio-Medical Research and StriVectin have put their heads together to develop a ‘Facial Toning Duo’ that they say is more effective than the average anti-aging / tightening cream by combining a stimulation technology with a built in specialized formulation.
According to Bio-Medical, a company that looks at the effects of muscle health and therapy for beauty solutions, the device has been used for decades in physicians and hi-end spas to improve muscle health and appearance and will now be available for consumers to affordably invest in.
In terms of the process, it says the treatment is delivered through soft GelPads placed on both sides of the face that gently but effectively stimulate the facial nerves which control all major facial muscles. Whilst the cosmeceutical cream designed by StriVectin-TL, works to instantly tighten the skin while also delivering long term skin firming benefits.
“Skin is hydrated, firmed and lifted while texture and skin tone is improved, attributable to an exclusive blend of botanical tensors, stimulating peptides and the multi-patented NIA-114 molecule,” say reps.
Companies have also developed a formula to replace cosmetic surgical procedures
As part of the venture the companies have also developed a take home ‘Tummy Lift Duo’ device which features FDA-cleared Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology which contracts and relaxes the abdominal muscles without the need for a surgical procedure.
In six-week clinical trials, the skin care formulator says 100% of users reported firmer more toned abs, which it believes is down to the combination of botanical tensors, peptides and its multi-patented NIA-114 molecule.
NIA-114 is a form of the skin nutrient niacin (nicotinic acid), one of the most active forms of Niacin, which enables a maximum concentration to be delivered into the skin because of its patented lipophilic tail which repairs damage and helps to rebuild the layers.
According to Kline, the at home beauty devices market grew at 22% last year and still holds a great deal of potential for the future, thanks to demand from anti-aging, toning and other skin care categories. The market researcher reckons it will be consumer awareness combined with regulatory requirements and device availability that will see a genuine wealth of potential awaiting marketers.
