Personalization on a whole new level.
Skin care enthusiasts know the anti-aging benefits of micro-currents. This type of technology delivers electrical currents to the skin and underlying muscles to increase cellular activity and create tighter, more lifted looks. And, while it’s typically used in the office by beauticians and dermatologists, there are a handful of at-home devices that can deliver instant results.
NuFACE is one such brand. It was originally launched with the Facial Toning Device, which celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Jennifer Anniston swear by. Next, they launched the Line Smoothing Device, which is ideal for lifting more delicate and hard-to-reach areas, such as under the eyebrows and the outer corners of the eyes. After that, they launched the NuBODY device, which uses the same technology on a larger panel to lift and tone areas such as the thighs and glutes. And now? NuFACE has just released its smallest device yet, but don’t let the size fool you.
The NuFACE Mini+ is a customizable version of the OG facial toning device that tailors treatments to your facial needs, all in a fun-sized tool.
Technically, you can use it on its own, but you can get next-level results by downloading the NuFACE app to your smartphone to experience and unlock the brand’s innovative 3-Depth technology (more on that in a minute). Once you download it and create your ID, you can experience different “skin workouts” that help firm, lift and tone your face. It’s intuitive, easy, and helps you up your skincare game.
Each workout has a different goal. For example, the skin tightening mode works to blur fine lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Instant-lify tones and contours the face, and pro-toning is designed to create deep, long-term facial toning – essentially the marathon goal of micro-current treatments.
As if that weren’t enough, you can also take selfies to record your skin’s “progress” with each treatment you do. And if you’re forgetful like I am sometimes, you’ll love being able to set treatment reminders to stay on track.

Using the app with the Mini+ has become an integral part of my skincare routine. And don’t get me wrong, I still love my original facial toning device, but I love that the app opens up options that I hadn’t thought of before. The same way I love guided meditations, I love guided skincare. I especially love “the neck lift” workout and the “cheek pop” workout when trying to give myself a sharper jawline and glowing cheekbones.
In addition, the Mini+ is water resistant. Not that I’m doing microcurrent treatment in the tub or anything, but as a clumsier person than most, I no longer have to worry about accidentally dropping it in the sink and to ruin it forever.
