Holly’s Personal Experience With the Pico Toner
As the owner of a medical spa and someone who has access to the latest aesthetic devices and procedures, I wanted to share with you part of my regimen. This device is unlike any other device of its kind. It is the PICO Toner by NeurotriS. I have tried several other microcurrent devices including the MyoLift, Clareblend Mini, and various NuFace models. However, the Pico Toner results are unparalleled. My face is toned, lifted, and sculpted. The results are not just noticeable they are undeniable!
Microcurrent is not a new technology. Bioelectricity has been studied since the early 1800s. Very low current has been used to heal bodily injuries since the 1950s ranging from lesions and wound healing to strengthening scar tissue. It has also been effective in treating infections due to its antimicrobial properties.
The PICO Toner is the most innovative microcurrent device to sculpt and lift the face and body with Silver Sculpting Gloves™, prong, and probe attachments and gel pad options that can be used on the face and neck. Many of us feel like we need to restore our youthful appearance but due to time, money, downtime, and risk, are not ready for invasive surgical procedures. Keep reading to learn more about how you can lift and contour your face and body in your own home with immediate and visible results.
Benefits of the PICO Toner include:
- Improves circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage;
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles;
- Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin;
- Lifts sagging skin and tones muscles;
- Tightens pores; and
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
The NeurotriS PICO Toner addresses the visible signs of aging including fine lines, sagging, laxity, loss of elasticity, and large pores. It is safe to use on any skin type – whether your skin is normal, dry, oily, or a combination. With continued use, you will notice reduced fine lines and wrinkles, tightened pores, contoured face, lifted facial features such as the cheeks, jowls, eyebrows, eyelids, and improved muscle tone, cellulite, and stretch marks. The microcurrent also activates cells and drains lymph in the treatment area, leading to reduced puffiness and defined facial and body features. This detoxification triggers the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate damaged cells for healthier looking skin. The electrical signals improve circulation and drain the lymphatic system, supporting weight loss, anti-aging, and bio hacking the body. It is like exercising the face and body for anti-aging just as you would exercise for weight loss.
The use of microcurrent in skincare and for anti-aging tones and sculpts the face and body. It also stimulates cellular activity and improves the foundational muscular structure to keep the face and body youthful looking. The results are long-lasting however just like exercising, routine and consistency are essential.
NeuroTriS, the maker of the PICO Toner, has been in the business of producing clinical microcurrent devices in dermatology for over 20 years. While this is a device that you can use at home, this is the same device that many professionals use.
This is the only device with Constant Waveform Morphology [CWM]. CWM emits a pure, low level bioelectrical frequency at maximum efficiency – low micro, nano, and pico levels of current without disruption. This is also known as impedance or the body’s resistant response to current. NeuoTriS is ahead of its time. It intelligently adapts based on the current that is delivered and impedance. Research indicates CWM will become the standard in the use of this technology in aesthetic and cosmetic treatments.
Microcurrent’s electrical impulses imitate our body’s natural electrical signals. Adenosine triphosphate [ATP] are molecules located within the cells of all living organisms that are responsible for delivering electrical energy within our cells – they work to fuel cellular activity in the body. When microcurrent is used, it increases the activity of ATP by up to 500% to stimulate collagen and elastin production for firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles and to retrain the underlying muscles to improve sagging and provide lifting.
The device has two programs. Program 1 is used to reduce wrinkles, tone, tighten, and lift and Program 2 is used to improve circulation, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and tighten large pores. The length of each program is 20 minutes and NeuroTriS has reserved an additional 10 minutes for future updates to the programs. If you are interested in a longer treatment, you will reset the device at 20 minute intervals.
The PICO Toner is designed with a feedback loop to automatically adjust for the optional output based on your skin during your treatment. It detects whether your skin is dehydrated or more or less resistant depending on the area of the face or body, for instance, and automatically adjusts to the optimal current strength for the best results. You don’t need to dial the current up or down and calculate the appropriate microamps and guess what your skin needs like with other devices. Simply set the controller from 0 to 100 and the PICO Toner determines the level of current that is needed for your desired setting.
The PICO Toner attachments are so versatile and easy to use. The pads can be used to simultaneously treat multiple areas. You can please the pads on the desired area and leave the device to do the work. For an interactive treatment, the gloves are great for contouring while the forks and probes can be used to lift and tone depending on the size of the targeted treatment area.
I use the PICO Toner 4 to 5 times each week and I alternate Program 1 and Program 2, which is according to NeuroTriS’ recommendation. Remember, during an active treatment, the attachments should not touch one another otherwise this will cancel the current. For example, when wearing the gloves, don’t allow them to touch each other during the treatment. With Program 2, you will use both of the attachments on one side of the face at a time. Don’t worry, the PICO Toner comes with detailed instructions and instructional videos so that you will know exactly how to use the device for optimal results. Compliance is key. With regular use, the PICO Toner delivers!
It is flexible and convenient. It uses a AAA battery and the device comes with a strap to conveniently wear it on your wrist during the treatment. You won’t be tethered to the wall – it does not have a power cord that needs to be plugged into an outlet. You can freely walk around if you need to without interruption.
Unlike other microcurrent devices, you do not need conductive gel, which is such a great feature from my point of view. You will simply spray the conductive ions, which come with the PICO Toner, or you can use water if you do not have any of the spray.
There are specific movements that you should make depending on the accessory that you use and the program that you select. Movements for Program 1 include:
- Gliding in upward motions from the bottom of the treatment area to the top of the treatment area;
- Cinching the treatment area, which works well to lift the cheeks and jaws;
- Erasing wrinkles using opposite motions to remove tension and pull the wrinkles away for example on facial expression lines; and
- Holding the position for a few seconds in the areas that require more attention, which is especially effective when treating the body.
For Program 2, consistent, upward sweeping motions work on the deeper, foundational aspects to lift the face and body.
With microcurrent, more power is not always better. The upward potential of the PICO Toner is 1000 microamps. This device is intuitive – it knows how to adapt based on the condition of the skin at the time of treatment and will respond and optimize based on the body’s resistance. Too much power can have the reverse effect. That’s what makes the PICO Toner so advanced and effective beyond its competitors. It automatically adjusts to conditions for the best results.
I love the PICO Toner by NeuroTriS and encourage you to consider it whether you are a professional esthetician or someone is seeking to reverse the visible signs of aging and “amp up” your anti-aging regimen — no pun intended!
It is portable and easy to use with outstanding results. Invest in yourself and upgrade your current microcurrent device with the PICO Toner by NeuroTriS. Appropriate for men and women of all ages and skin types, you will be impressed by the results.
The same attachments can be used on the face and the body. I can complete a program on my face, then immediately transition to treat areas of my body, without having to detach and reattach accessories.
If you are using the gloves, you will use the liners to treat any area of the face and body. Alternatively, if you would like to use microcurrent on your hands, you can wear the gloves without the liners and by just wearing the gloves, your hands will be treated!
