For a long time, I researched all kinds of gadgets for improving the skin and I tried them out. In fact, I would sometimes purchase many of these gadgets and give them to the CFF team to experiment and give feedback. Everything we tried did work well, from using a microcurrent home machine to the red-light therapy handheld devices. However, they always took so much time and attention. 

Then, I found the gadget that not only gave good results, but it was easy to use and was not time-consuming. In fact, when we first started using this device, we saw good results right away. These results were sustained as we used it over the next few months. Here is the full breakdown of the CFF Gua Sha device and how it improves the skin and its tone. 

The CFF Gua Sha device has 4 working modes. 

These four approaches penetrate deep into the muscles to help relieve tension and to help release stuck-down fascia while diminishing age spots and allowing the serums used to penetrate into the skin even deeper.

Working modes

  1. Vibration + LED 
  2. Heating + LED 
  3. Heating + Vibration 
  4. Heating + Vibration + LED 

Benefits: 

  1. Relaxes the skin and helps to accelerate blood circulation for a more beautiful complexion.
  2. Enhances skin elasticity by activating ATP in the muscles (see below)
  3. Helps even out skin-tone and reduce hyperpigmentation with the red-light therapy
  4. Reduces wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin fiber production
  5. Firms the double chin area as well as the neck
  6. Lifts and tightens the skin (muscle and skin are intertwined in the face)
  7. Enhances the absorption of serums and oils for deeper penetration into the skin  
  8. Stimulates the natural meridians in the face and neck for trigger point therapy.

How do these working modes help the skin and muscles of the face improve?

First, let’s look at the microcurrent aspect of the CFF Gua Sha.

The Science of Microcurrent – excerpt

Microcurrent treatments are safe, effective and painless. The technology was first developed in the medical arena in the 1960s to treat patients with facial paralysis due to stroke and Bell’s palsy. It proved to be so effective for muscle rehabilitation and wound healing, that it was later adopted by the beauty industry for aesthetic purposes.

Studies show that regular microcurrent treatments:

  • Lift droopy eyelids and jowls
  • Enhance facial contour for a more sculpted look
  • Reduce and erase fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decrease puffiness and inflammation
  • Lift and tighten brow and jaw lines
  • Promote firmer, smoother skin texture and tone

The effects are cumulative, and there are no harmful side effects. Instead, there are side benefits, which include muscle re-education, scar repair and deep relaxation. Used with the CFF facial exercises, the results are even more astounding.

Microcurrent works in harmony with the body’s natural electrical system to:

  • Increase circulation
  • Promote collagen and elastin production
  • Dramatically increase ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
  • Improve fibroblast activity for collagen synthesis
  • Increase amino acid production

The considerable increase of ATP {1} is particularly important. ATP is the chemical energy that supports all living things, and as we age, our body’s store of ATP diminishes and our cellular functions slow down, increasing the signs of aging. Microcurrent treatments boost ATP production by as much as 500%, and thereby improve the appearance of your skin at the cellular level. 

Microcurrent anti-aging technology works organically to rejuvenate the skin as well as to re-educate facial muscles, removing the tired mask of stress so that our true beauty can shine forth. It allows us to age gracefully.

There is also a heating element to help with penetration of products used.

Heat

The heating element becomes warm from 107 to 114 F. It promotes skin and blood circulation, accelerates metabolism, expels toxins, repairs skin and helps to remove wrinkles while activating cells deeply.

Vibration – 8000 vibrations/min

The high frequency micro-vibrations massage, increases the blood circulation in the face to minimize the appearance of fatigue and revitalize the skin in the face and neck. It helps to eliminate fine lines, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, as well.

Red Light Therapy – wavelength is 630nm+-

Red Light therapy brightens and evens out skin tone unevenness. It increases collagen and protein while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It tightens, firms and repairs damaged skin.

Red light therapy is a natural, noninvasive treatment that’s been found safe and effective across thousands of peer-reviewed studies and trials. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory that helps your cells regenerate and repair. If you’re not familiar with red light and its benefits, this overview post gives you a good idea of what red light therapy is and how it works. 

The short version is this: Light therapy delivers safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light to your skin and cells, with no chemicals, UV rays, or excess heat. These red and near infrared wavelengths of light stimulate the mitochondria in your cells similar to natural sunlight, reducing oxidative stress, and increasing circulation, so your body is able to make more core energy to power itself. ATP is key.

{1} At 600 to 800 nm red light increases ATP … as ATP increases, so does the cells ability to perform increase, as well.

Gua Sha Device

Gua Sha actually predates acupuncture. The stroke patterns used, awaken the meridian lines to activate the body’s natural healing abilities. For the skin, Gua Sha encourages collagen production. It sculpts and tones the face shape, allowing inflammation to drain and muscles to become free of tension — permitting them to do their supportive jobs properly. It also helps the skin return to its most radiant state as circulation is increased, sending nutrients to areas that may have been starved because of blockage.

Gua Sha’s effect is more than skin deep. Because the meridian lines are enlivened, organs such as the stomach, liver, spleen, heart and kidneys also receive great benefit. Working with the CFF Gua Sha device over the area of the face connected to the kidneys, for example, sends a message down the meridian line of the kidney inviting them to let go of their toxins, relax and receive nourishment. This enables them to function at optimal capacity.

Power connection

The CFF Gua Sha device connects with a USB plug so it can be powered-up anywhere in the world. 

Conclusion

When used on a consistent and regular basis, the CFF Gua Sha device will improve the texture of your skin along with evening out the hyperpigmentation or age spots in the skin. It will boost the firmness of the skin on the face and neck while increasing collagen and therefore elastin production. The lymphatic drainage that naturally takes place as you glide the device over the face, reduces puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles while smoothing the skin by releasing stuck-down fascia. It helps product penetrate deeply into the skin.

When paired with CFF CBD Antioxidant cream, the effects are boosted tremendously. The CFF Gua Sha microcurrent and heat, helps to penetrate any serums or lotions you use for even better and deeper coverage.
