Seven Skin Benefits
Comparable to a facial massage, the ageLOC LumiSpa device uses a patent-pending, counter-rotating action to purify pores by removing dirt, oil, makeup, pollutants and toxins while delivering seven skin benefits that intensify with continued use:
- Purified skin
- Reduced pore appearance
- Refreshed skin
- Improved appearance of volume and density
ageLOC LumiSpa was invented by Nu Skin scientists with contributions from a board-certified dermatologist and inspired by gene expression studies of skin protein production. In the development of ageLOC LumiSpa, Nu Skin conducted several clinical studies including a 12-week study that revealed individuals who used the product experienced improvements in the skin's smoothness, softness, texture, clarity and radiance.
Research that influenced the development of ageLOC LumiSpa was named as a “Top 10 Poster” by the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC). It was selected from among more than 300 posters exhibited at the most recent IFSCC conference in Seoul, South Korea. The poster highlighted a study where digital image analysis was used to measure the efficacy of a test regimen using a novel treatment cleansing technology. The study revealed the device was able to improve skin softness and smoothness immediately after just one use with an average of 51 percent improvement in skin smoothness.
“When it comes to skin care, today's busy consumer is looking for multi-functional products that are simple to use, yet produce results they can see and feel,” said Dr. Joseph Chang, chief scientific officer. “ageLOC LumiSpa combines patent-pending technology with scientifically researched treatment cleansers to cleanse, exfoliate and renew the skin in a single treatment. As a result, customers can instantly experience softer, smoother skin that becomes more radiant.”
ageLOC® LumiSpa® System
The ageLOC LumiSpa system includes:
- The ageLOC LumiSpa device: ageLOC LumiSpa is a waterproof, handheld personal skin care device and comes with a charging base. ageLOC LumiSpa treatment heads move at the precise frequency, validated by clinical studies, to promote superior cleansing and skin renewal for a healthy and refreshed appearance.
- Silicone treatment heads: ageLOC LumiSpa features two treatment heads — normal and firm. The nonabrasive silicone surface is more gentle and hygienic than brushes commonly used with other devices. Each head has a projected life of three months and is embedded with antimicrobial silver.
ageLOC LumiSpa treatment cleansers: The ageLOC LumiSpa treatment cleansers optimize the effectiveness of the device by enabling precise cushioning, cleansing and interaction with the skin. The cleansers — which come in five formulations for skin that is dry, normal to combination, oily, sensitive and acne-prone — contain Nu Skin's proprietary ageLOC ingredient blend. The various treatment cleansers also contain popular natural ingredients that may include:
- Japanese knotweed to help reduce oil production
- Extract from pomegranate and rhododendron for antioxidant protection
- Milk thistle and nannochloropsis oculata extract (an algae extract) to help maintain the skin's natural moisture barrier
The ageLOC LumiSpa starter kit includes an ageLOC LumiSpa device, treatment head, treatment cleanser, charging base, power cord, quick start guide and a user's manual. It is now available in the U.S. for $199. For more information, please visit nuskinusa.com. For specific pricing and availability for other markets, please visit nuskin.com.
