Enter the Conture Face+Neck Skin Enhancement System--an at-home system that uses "isometric compression" (basically pulsating suction-release action) and low frequency vibrations to stimulate aging skin. Although I was skeptical, I figured it was pretty low risk, and Conture claimed that after 8 weeks, their research participants had smoother, firmer, brighter, more even skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Who doesn't want those things?!
Step 1: Cleanse. I used the same makeup remover and cleanser that I have been using for awhile. The Conture system can be used in conjunction with any other skincare products that you may like to use.
Step 2: Appy the Kinetic Treatment Serum to the area you want to treat by smoothing it over the skin--don't rub it in (I've been focusing on my forehead and cheeks).
Step 3: Tone. Place the desired attachment head onto the device, turn it on, and glide the Conture device slowly along the face/neck for 2-3 minutes.
The Conture system is designed to be used twice daily, with the Kinetic AM Lotion or the Kinetic PM Creme applied after toning.
I've been using the Conture system religiously for two weeks, and have seen some very slight improvement in my skin--some of the ever-present hyper-pigmentation and other issues under my cheekbones seems to be fading (see the pics below... don't mind my RBF). The faint beginnings of some wrinkles on my forehead seem the same, as do the acne scars between my brows. The whole process is a little more time consuming than I would like, and the system is fairly expensive. Stay tuned for an update in a few weeks to see if my results were as good as Conture's research participants!
