A question I am often asked is, how does the Clareblend Mini compare to Nuface and Myolift? Here’s my professional opinion based on my experience.
In case you’re not familiar, microcurrent is a gentle muscle toning device that runs an tiny electrical current between two wands that you touch to your skin. The process is similar to your body’s bio-electric current. The current is much too low to electrocute you. It is perfectly safe. The microcurrent device stimulates cellular level activity of ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) that controls muscle contraction, protein synthesis and muscle re-education. Muscle re-education is the process of lengthening or shortening muscles which lift the skin and creates toned, relaxed skin. Relaxed skin will feel smoother and look younger. Not only will you be able to achieve a more natural contoured look and tighten saggy skin, you will feel pampered by the massage while using the device.
As we compare the Clareblend Mini to Nuface, I want to clarify it is an apple to oranges comparison – not an apple to apples comparison. What I mean by that is, the Nuface runs on the same frequency over and over. It is like going to the gym and doing the same work out over and over. The muscles acclimate. Allow me to explain further. The Nuface runs at 400 microamps with a set frequency. In other words, the Nuface has a constant frequency that is not varied or changed up. This can result in muscle resistance. It is like putting you on a constant (no rest) and identical workout routine at the gym. You might see a little bit of change at first (if you can even make it through the routine without exhaustion) but once you adjust to the routine, it no longer produces results. You get muscle acclimation – and in some cases muscle fatigue resulting in counterproductive results.
Also, the Nuface runs on a higher voltage, meaning you will feel a lot of zapping to your face from its current. Many do not use it due to the zapping (called “sparking” in the microcurrent community). If you dread using a device, if it is not pleasant, you will NOT use it. Devices do not work unless you use them. Who wants to go to the gym and get repeatedly zapped with electricity while on the treadmill? No thanks!
The Clareblend Mini runs at 340 microamps and has a variable frequency. This means you cannot cause muscle fatigue and you can achieve longer lasting results. The Clareblend Mini’s multiple random frequency modulations aids in improved lift. Some begin to see results within a couple of weeks and with proper ongoing use, improvement will continue.
The NuFace says to use it daily for 60 days before judging results. That’s a lot of treatments! Who has time to wait 60 days for results?
You only have to use the Clareblend Mini 2-3 times per week during the building phase, then 1 to 2 times per week in maintenance, depending on age and health. Additionally, the Clareblend Mini design is very light and the probes on the handheld device feel pleasant to use. They also allow you to get in the nooks and crannies of your face. Contrarily, the awkward, two big ball design of the Nuface makes it difficult to get a detailed lift of the face.
The Clareblend Mini runs on low voltage circuit for delivery of smooth current. You will never experience zapping. It will conduct with water or water-based products. The beep it makes lets you know it’s on. Just add water or a water-based product to your skin and follow the instructions.
Now, let’s talk about the Myolift. Again, this is not an apples to apples comparison. It’s more like an apple to apple tree. You will have to decide which of the 9 programmable amps (up to 400 microamps) is right for you. It is microcurrent, unlike the galvanic (constant) current of the Nuface. However, having to figure out what current to use is confusing since you haven’t gone to esthetician school to learn this. Placement of the wands is important. You will have to learn the correct placement for best results. Therefore, the learning curve on this machine can be complicated. Improper use can have counter-productive results. The Clareblend Mini, on the other hand, is simple. Plug it in and move it over the areas you want to improve per the supplied instructions. It couldn’t be easier.
The Myolift when used at the higher levels, can result in a zapping, especially if you’re not using lots of product on the probes or if your skin is dehydrated. Myolift recommends using the device once in a 24-hour period, for 5-20 minutes per treatment. For the first 60 days they recommend using it once-three times a week for one month. Then monthly/bi-monthly for ongoing maintenance.
So, in my humble opinion, it comes down to this…
How simple do you want your home microcurrent treatment to be? Nothing could be simpler than using the Clareblend Mini.
You will have a longer learning curve with the Myolift and it doesn’t travel well.
Do you want to risk muscle fatigue and adverse results using Nuface?
The Clareblend Mini is safe, effective, easy to use, travels well and is the perfect amount of microcurrent and a leading home-use microcurrent device. It is so effective, I use it in my studio. Easy decision in my professional opinion.
