If you’re a regular reader of mine, you would have been following my journey using the Silk’n Titan device for tightening and lifting. This device, which came out last year, is something you use twice a week for 10-15 minutes per zone to help reverse the signs of aging and get firmer, more lifted skin.
This is my third and final post (view my previous two posts here and here) on the product, as I’ve been using it religiously for the past 10 weeks. I started my journey with the device in October and to be honest, I was a total skeptic on how well it would work. Since I’m only 29 years old, I wasn’t using it to get rid of wrinkles, but instead to prevent them from happening and give me younger-looking skin around my eyes.
The recommended usage for the device is twice a week, 10-to-15 minutes per zone for 10 weeks. The Titan, which has been clinically tested and FDA cleared and Health Canada approved, safely tightens facial skin from the inside out, reducing wrinkles by repairing the collagen in our face (as you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down, which is when you start to see fine lines and wrinkles). So how does it do this? The Titan harmonizes the benefits of three sources of energy: Bi-Polar RF energy, LED light energy and IR heat energy. The powerful combination of these three energy sources creates a safe, painless and proven result. After regular use, skin should appear more lifted, making you look younger and your skin looking more glowy.
I chose to do my under eyes since I feel like that would be the area that I would notice wrinkles happening first. As I mentioned in my halfway post, although I didn’t see the changes happening every week, when I looked at the before and after images, there was a noticeable difference in how lifted my eye area looked.
To use the device, first slather some of the Silk’n Slider Hyaluronic Gel on the area you are treating, then pick a level that is comfortable for you and slide the device around the area for 10 to 15 minutes. I found that I had to reapply the gel a few times since my skin would absorb it, but Silk’n says that you need to use the gel for the product to really work its magic. Since I was doing both eyes, I would invest 20 minutes, twice a week to treat that area of my face.
Now 40 minutes per week doesn’t sound like a lot of time, however, I’m always doing something and don’t usually have any downtime. I also wear glasses, which made it very difficult to use on my under eyes since they would get in the way. I would end up using the product while reading a book or watching something on my phone since I would hold it right up to my eyes. Honestly, the only downside of this product is the time investment. It’s a lot of time to use this, especially when you are a busy person. With that being said, I really liked using the Titan before bed since the heat from the product was very relaxing and made me sleepy. I used this on the highest level, however, I started at a lower one initially and then built it up once my skin got used to the feeling. Unlike other anti-aging devices out there, this one does not sting, so it’s a comfortable application.
So, my results? I was actually quite surprised on how impressed I was with this device. In addition to a more firming, lifted appearance, my under eyes feel very smooth, which is awesome when I apply a moisturizer after using the Titan. This retails for C$299 (you can find it at London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart, and other retailers), which is quite an investment, however, I have used at-home devices that cost way more money and promise to do the same thing. Also, if you were to visit a clinic to get this done, it would cost you a lot more money.
Now that my 10 weeks are over, Silk’n does recommend using the device once every two weeks to maintain the results. Now that I’m done my under eyes, I actually want to do my chin and neck area, since I’ve been finding that the skin is starting to loose some elasticity in that area and I would love to get rid of that double chin. Also, I don’t think I would have much of an issue using it on that area since I can actually keep my glasses on.
I would love to know if you have ever used any at-home anti-aging devices and how well they worked for you. Like I said, aside from the time commitment, I really liked how the Titan made my skin look and feel.
