I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t mess around when it comes to skincare.
Back in the beginning of November I started trying out the Silk’n Titan, an anti-aging device for tightening and lifting. You can read my first post on the gadget here, but basically it’s a device that you use twice a week for 10-15 minutes per zone to help reverse the signs of aging and get firmer, more lifted skin.
I was challenged to try out the device for 10 weeks (which is what Silk’n recommends for best results) and I’m a little over halfway, so I thought I would come on here to do a quick recap of how I’m liking the device so far.
Like I said, I use this twice a week and focus on my under-eye area. I have pretty good skin to start off with, but as I’m already 29, turning 30 next year, I want to keep my complexion looking young. So yes, you may be wondering, why am I using this product when I don’t need it, but I like using these things for preventative measures. It’s the same reason why 21 year olds get Botox, so that they don’t get wrinkles later on.
Since I’m doing both eyes, I have to invest 20 minutes twice a week into using this guy. Now that doesn’t sound like a lot, but since I’m basically blind without glasses, I have been finding it a little challenging finding time to actually use this. Since I essentially have three jobs (my full-time gig, teaching fitness classes, and doing this blog), if I have downtime I like to spend it in front of the TV watching Netflix or reading a book. Since I wear glasses I have found it to be a little bit of an inconvenience to sit there and hover my glasses over my eyes while using this. As a result, I’m more inclined to use this after a shower at night, curled up in bed with a good book, which I usually don’t need my glasses for if the book is super close to my face.
When using the machine I first slather on the Slider Hyaluronic Gel, which Silk’n insists must be used prior to using the device since it will not work without the gel. I do find that after about five minutes or so the gel has worked itself into my skin so I have to reapply, otherwise the device pulls on the skin, whereas the gel makes it easy for the device to slide. There are also five different settings and since I have a pretty high tolerance of pain, I can do level five (the highest one) no problem. Unlike other anti-aging devices I’ve tried, this one doesn’t sting, it uses three different energies, so all you feel is a hot sensation, but definitely nothing burning. In fact, I like using this before bed since I find the heat to be very relaxing and it makes me sleepy using this.
So what have my results been like? Well, so far so good. I have found that my under-eye skin has been looking more radiant and I look more alert and awake. As you’ll see in the before and afters, my undereye area does look more lifted and radiant, which I’m really happy about. I’m excited to see my final results at the end of next month. Once I’m done the 10 weeks, I’ll keep using this device once every two weeks to maintain the area. I also wouldn’t mind trying this out on my neck as well, as that could definitely get a little more firmed.
Have you tried any anti-aging devices? What areas would you treat?
