The Fix is a good quick fix – hence the name. In professional treatments, after the first 40 minutes of toning with high levels of microcurrent, they turn down the current to a lower level that doesn’t reach the muscles but floods the surface of the skin with microcurrent. This has the effect of boosting the circulation in the tiny capillaries in the skin, and improving lymphatic drainage. That’s what the Fix is doing, and that’s how it is able to soften the fine lines around the eyes and on the lips and the forehead.
I like using it on the fine lines around my eyes and find that, if I can be patient and keep moving lightly over the area for a couple of minutes, it is remarkably good at flattening eye bags. The serum is lovely – it’s light and smooth and moisturising and unlike the gel that comes with the main NuFACE products, sinks right into the skin and doesn’t need wiping off afterwards.
I have also been experimenting with the Fix on the fine vertical lines around my lips – and I’m convinced it helps to minimise the lines and plump up the edge of the lip just a touch.
You can watch a video here of NuFACE lead trainer Kate Prais demonstrating the Face Trainer and the Fix on me – the Fix is at around 18 minutes in.

The latest device from NuFACE is a cute little thing that offers super-speedy and convenient treatment of fine lines – around the eyes, the lips, and on the forehead — for both on-the-go millennials looking for an instant skin pick-me-up and for the more mature among us who need, shall we say, a more targeted treatment for fine lines and wrinkles (that’s what I use it for). It’s the size of an overgrown mascara, so it will fit easily into a handbag or washbag and recharges via a micro-USB cable. As you might guess with a NuFACE device, it uses electrical microcurrent to firm, tighten and tone the skin around the eyes, lips and forehead in just three minutes, and there are clinically proven results to back up the claims.
You can use the device with any conductive, water-based serum, but for best results, try the special NuFix serum which is the first ‘microcurrent skincare’. The ingredients are ionised to pull the microcurrent into the skin and increase the instant results. The serum can be used alone for an instant hydration hit, too. I find it’s great for pushing hydrating serums into the lips, and though this isn’t something that the brand claims, it is really helpful for dispersing post-procedure bruises in double-quick time.
Apply serum to the treatment area. Switch the device on and rest the contact points lightly on the skin, then move them gently back and forth, or up and down, or round in small circles, on the area that you are treating, for one minute.
The treatment can be repeated during the day.
