Product review: 3 in 1 Ultrasonic Handheld Device
Hi! It’s Monique here. If we haven’t met before, I’m a web TV host and presenter and have lost over 40 kilos in weight. I get approached by companies all the time to test products and can hand on heart say that I will only ever share with you the products that I truly believe in…..And this machine is a perfect example! I’ve been using the 3 in 1 Ultrasonic Handheld Device for around 3 weeks and I love it!! But, what is it and how does it work? Read on to find out more!
When I was asked to try this machine by the team at ‘Guide To Better Shopping‘, like most people, I was dubious. I already knew a little about the machine as I’d seen it online and I’ve also previously tried ‘non invasive fat cavitation treatments’ from appearance medicine clinics so knew how it worked. The reason I stopped the previous treatments was that it was $150+ per treatment, so really hard on the budget, and I could only afford a treatment sporadically, when in reality, the best results come from small amounts of treatment every day, rather than one big treatment occasionally. (Another benefit of having the machine: You can use it whenever you want!)
The machine has 3 main functions:
- The Ultrasonic Part: The dome at the top emits radio frequency and heats up. As it does, it basically starts to break down the fat cells under the skin, while firming things up and according to ‘Wikipedia’: ‘Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodelling and production of new collagen and elastin.’ This has literally transformed my Turkey Neck and is helping me reduce the the crepeing skin on my upper arms and reduce the rolls on my stomach and love handles left over from my weight loss.
- Infrared: When I was a kid, my parents had an infrared lamp for helping me with my ‘growing pains’. But ‘red light’ can do so much more! According to fitness and wellness blogger Laura London: it apparently helps to ‘improve skin tone and texture, control pigmentation spots, can help reduce pore size, encourage vibrant, healthier-looking skin, and reduce fine lines.Anti-aging red light therapy stimulates circulation and repairs the elastin fibres within the tissue to help keep skin firm and can penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin, to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin.’ BONUS!
- EMS ( Electromagnetic stimulation): No, it’s not something out of a horror movie – IT’S AMAZING!! The machine comes with electrodes that you attach to your skin. You then dial up the setting you want and the power level and let the machine do the work! I’ve had this treatment before from a beauty therapist to help burn fat on my stomach and contract the muscles in a much deeper way than exercise to help strengthen my core. Physiotherapists and gyms have used similar machines for years to help with muscle repair and healing, but the bonus benefits I discovered were: pain relief for my sore arms from too much computer use, tension relief in my shoulders and I noticed a difference after using this function on my stomach too! It has a gentle, slightly tickley feeling and according to this report from the India Times, ‘In EMS, impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated, which contracts the muscles just like an active exercise. EMS promotes a sustained reduction of body weight and body fat’
You can see the results.
I think what I love most about this machine is that I started to see results straight away. Starting with my Turkey Neck was a real winner because at the end of the day, you can cover all the other parts of your body, but your face and neck are always on display right? I’ve always been super self conscious about my rolly neck, so I’m delighted to see it visibly shrivel and tighten after every treatment.
Save time and money.
I also love that I only need to do it for a few minutes a day and the results I get correlate to being diligent with my short daily treatments. 5-10 minutes a day on a targeted area is NOTHING in the grand scheme of things and not only am I looking after myself, I’m saving money by not having to go to a beauty therapist to achieve the results I’m after, AND reducing the likelihood of having cosmetic surgery!! The device, I believe, is reasonably priced and less than the cost of 1 beauty therapy treatment.
Look after you and LOVE YOUR BODY!
When did you last spend time worshipping and loving YOURSELF? Well now you have an excuse every day to give yourself just 10 minutes….That’s all it takes. And you’ll love the results.
Enjoy! I know you will X
