The Nuface Trinity is a small, hand-held FDA-cleared home microcurrent device which stimulates your facial tissues. It passes a teeny 400 micro amps (μA) current through your skin with the help of a conductive water-based gel. This tiny current is very similar to your body’s own bioelectricity and so your cells use it to create an energy molecule called ATP.

ATP is very important as it fuels pretty much all cell activities. In turn, your energised skin cells build more and stronger collagen and elastin, healing and refreshing the skin and muscle on your face and neck.

For some, microcurrent gives immediate, visible results such as tightened skin, diminished pores and depuffed eyes. Other effects build gradually over time. You can learn even more about the science behind microcurrent anti-aging facials here.

Ease of use
Very easy to use, requires gel. Soothing pamper time. Use morning or night. No pain or side effects.

Effort
It’s a commitment! 5 to 20-ish mins per day, 5 days a week for 60 days. Plus more for ELE & LED. Continue if needed or switch to 2 or 3 times a week to maintain your results.

Results
Subtle effects build over time and differ by person. Results get better and last longer with long term use, or fade if you stop. Refreshes, smooths and tightens for a healthy, younger appearance.

First impressions

I bought the Nuface Gold Trinity limited edition. Different editions are available now, but all contain the same specification Trinity device with big-balls trainer attachment.

I like the neat, attractive, professional and feminine packaging. The information clear and the Trinity device looks inviting and cute.

Love this fun, attractive small box. Let me open it!

The content of the smaller box: 24K gold Firm priming gel in a box, compact plug and cable with interchangeable prongs, and Prep n Glow cleansing cloths.

What’s in the box?

In all Nuface limited editions:

  • Nuface Trinity device with facial trainer attachment
  • Charging cradle
  • Mains lead with UK, US and European plugs
  • Primer gel (59ml / 2oZ)
  • User manual

In my Gold edition Nuface I got a 24K Gold Firming primer gel. The standard trainer kit comes with the Nuface Hydrating primer gel. My Gold edition also has a pink and gold purse thing (which isn’t big enough to store anything. Looks pretty though).

Other editions now replace this Gold edition, so check the deals at the end of the review.

Before you start

Before your first session, charge the device, read the user manual, do a skin sensitivity test, and watch the instructional ‘how to’ videos.

Read the user manual to get acquainted with the Trinity and learn about important warnings and reasons you may not be suitable to use it.
Charge the Trinity in the cradle for 12 hours (16 hours for the mini) and read the user manual

The user manual is a quick and easy read. There’s not much about how it works but there are helpful diagrams of the routines. And it’s very important you read the warnings and contraindications for reasons you may not be suitable to use the Trinity.

Close up photo of the contraindications listed in the user manual
Check the contraindications, precautions & warnings in the user manual.

You can learn more about microcurrent contraindications here. The key reasons you’re not suitable is if you’re pregnant, suffer seizures or have an electronic implanted device like a defibrillator, neurostimulator, pacemaker, or ECG monitor. If you’ve had recent Botox or fillers you should consult your doctor too. Check the user manual thoroughly before you start.

The user manual also explains the primer gel sensitivity testBlob a dime or 20p size amount onto your forearm and rub it in. Leave for 15 to 30 mins before washing it off. If there’s no reaction it’s safe to use.

And it’s also a good idea to have a cuppa and watch the instructional videos. These help you understand the movements in the routines and what to expect during your treatment.

The Trinity device

The Trinity comes with the big-balls trainer attachment, and you can buy the ELE and LED wrinkle reducer attachments separately.

I like the design a lot. It’s small, curvy and characterful.

It weighs about 180g and feels solid and robust. The weight is at the spheres-end but feels perfectly balanced when held upright. It curves towards your face so you can see where the spheres are going.

Big golden balls.

The standard Trainer attachment has chrome-plated spheres. But this special edition Trinity has 18K rose-gold dipped spheres. I prefer to call them golden balls. I don’t think the gold adds anything to the microcurrent effect, but they do look pretty.

The spheres fit around your cheekbones and jaw, and feel very pleasant gliding around your neck and cheeks. They’re kinda cool to look in too (and impossible to avoid reflections in photos!).

The controls are very simple to operate and out of the way so you won’t accidentally press them.

Easy to operate

Some people can feel skin tingles or have a metallic taste. In which case, just lower the intensity until it’s more comfortable.

You get UK, US and EU prongs, handy for traveling with your Nuface overseas. They slide easily into the mains adaptor. The power cable (115 cm) is long enough to set the cradle on a table or ledge directly above the socket.

Poor little lonely Trinity. Cute!

Charge the Nuface Trinity for a full 12 hours (and 16 hours for the mini). The blue lights cycle and you’ll hear an ascending beep as it starts to charge. When it’s fully charged the blue lights stay lit.

The battery life is excellent. It lasts for two weeks if using it five times a week 20 minutes per session. Recently, Nuface have advised not to leave the Trinity on the charger. Instead, charge it fully every few weeks.

I’m charged. Let’s go!

The Trinity could be a bit smaller and still be as comfortable. But that’s what you get with the Nuface Mini device. However, the downside there is the ELE and LED wrinkle reducer attachments don’t fit. They only fit the full-size Trinity. More on those attachments next.

ELE & LED ATTACHMENTS

You get the facial trainer big-balls as standard and can buy the ELE and LED wrinkle reducer attachments separately for around £125 to £142.

The ELE has small balls on the end of long prongs. It’s to boost ATP in hard-to-reach eyebrow furrows, crow’s feet, under eyes, nasolabial, lip and smile lines.

Precise microcurrent for the areas big-balls can’t go.

The LED wrinkle reducer attachment has 36 small LEDs of red and near-infrared light. It’s extra help for wrinkles and fine lines. You place it against your skin in trouble spots for 3 minutes each.

Nuface Primer Gels

You must use a water-based conductivity gel with the Trinity Trainer and ELE attachments. It passes the microcurrent into your skin.

Left: 59ml of 24K Gold Firming gel, Right: 59ml of Hydrating gel primer.

You can buy three different Nuface primer gels. They’re all leave-on formulas and they feel very nourishing.

The Hydrating primer gel is the cheapest. It comes in three sizes – 2oz/59ml for £10/$14, 5oz/142ml for £20/$29 and 10oz/284ml for £43/$48. It’s got lots of moisturising ingredients in it including Hyaluronic Acid. Apply it with your fingers or use a cosmetic brush to paint it on.

Then there’s the more expensive 24K Gold primer gels which come in just the smaller size 2oz/59ml for £32/$39. There are two types, one with Firming ingredients, and the other with Brightening ingredients. They both come in a squeezy tube with a no mess, built-in applicator brush.

The 59ml/2oz gels last just under one month using it five sessions per week on neck and face.

Squeeze the tube and the Gold gel comes out the middle of the brush! No mess – genius.

My Trinity edition came with the 24K Gold Firming gel. Once it was empty, I tried the Hydrating primer gel (I kept the Gold gel to use the brush). Both are very nice gels indeed and you can learn more about them later.

Getting started

The routines are simple and easy to master. There’s a basic (glides) and an advanced (glides & holds) routine to choose from. More on those later. You’ll need a mirror and for the first few sessions you’ll need the ‘how-to’ videos and/or user guide diagrams to remind you of the routines.

User guide has handy diagrams for the glides & holds

Work on the left side of your face, then repeat on the right. The gel dries out quite quickly so divide each side into sections. I start with the left side of my neck, cheek and then forehead. The Trinity beeps every 5 seconds as a cue to move to the next position. Both spheres must touch the skin for the microcurrent to work.

Here’s how to use it:

  1. Wash & dry your face (with a non-oil based cleanser)
  2. Apply a non-oil based serum if you like
  3. Apply a thin mask-like layer (1 to 2 mm) of the primer gel to the first section
  4. Power on the Trinity & select your intensity from 1 to 5
  5. Treat with your preferred series of glides and holds
  6. Move to the next section, apply the gel, and treat. Repeat on all sections
  7. When complete massage in or wipe off any remaining Nuface gel primer

The Trinity automatically shuts off after 20 mins or 21 minutes with the LED attachment. You must allow 24 hours between each treatment.

The routines

The basic routine with trainer attachment is three gliding moves repeated three times on neck, cheek and forehead. It’s the minimum you must do each day and it’s the original followed in the clinical test. It takes about 5 minutes. I find the videos with Tera Peterson (below) the best to learn the technique.

Can’t see the video? Watch 5-minute facial lift on Youtube

The 15 minute advanced routine has the basic gliding moves with a further seven ‘lift & hold’ positions on each side of your face. It takes closer to 20 minutes for me.

Can’t see the video? Watch 15-minute advanced facial lift on Youtube

TIP: The routine tutorials and follow-along videos in the App don’t include the neck glides and holds. So, that’s a bit pants.

The ELE routine has glides and lifts focusing on eyes, mouth and 11’s lines. It takes between 5 to 10 minutes.

Can’t see the video? Watch the ELE eyes & lips routine on Youtube

Use the wrinkle reducer on clean skin, no gel needed. Place it flat against your skin for 3 minutes in each wrinkled and fine-lined trouble spot for a collagen smoothing boost. Use the LED attachment BEFORE the microcurrent attachments.

Can’t see the video? Watch the LED wrinkle reducer routine on Youtube

What’s it like & feel like?

To start I thought the gel faffy, but with a brush to paint it on, it’s not so bad. Plus, my skin loves these Nuface formulas. They’re cool, thick, smooth, not too slippery or tacky. They don’t drip, sting your eyes, or taste sickly sweet. You can massage in any remaining gel or wipe it off. My skin feels wonderfully soft and hydrated afterward so I don’t need any further products.

Nuface Hydrating formula is the best value & feels lush

The Trinity device with trainer big-balls is easy to move around your face and feels soothing. The ELE routine is easy too but demands more concentration around your eyes because the prongs are slippery with the gel! But I gave up on the LED attachment – learn about this in the negatives section.

Soothing glides and holds make up the advanced routine

I use it on level 5 and it feels pleasant, particularly the soothing glides across my neck and cheeks. There’s very little sensation from the microcurrent. However, it can zing a bit over spots and blemishes. And sometimes if the spheres touch a bit where there’s no gel. Occasionally, I get a twitching, pulling sensation around my hairline too. It can also make your vision ‘wobble’ or pulse if you get too close to your eyes! But it doesn’t last or hurt at all.

There’s sometimes a lingering metallic taste in my mouth during and after a session. It’s a minor annoyance without any pattern to it. Lowering the intensity helps. But after a few months this stopped altogether anyway.  

After each session, my skin feels very smooth and refreshed with no skin redness or reactions. I have no side effects during my trial, but some users do report headaches. Drink plenty of water before to avoid this and help the microcurrent work.

You can do your sessions at any time during the day. I’m not a morning person so I find it easier to fit in on an evening. And during the first few weeks I looked forward to the pampering downtime of the 15-minute advanced routine (it takes closer to 20 minutes for me). But after a month of five sessions per week and an extra 10 minutes with the ELE routine, it starts to feel like a chore.

However, once you’ve mastered the routines it’s easy to do with a handheld mirror whilst watching TV. So, you don’t need so much motivation, just regular self-care time.

Effort & advertised results

To start, use the Trinity 5 times a week for 60 days. This schedule is the same for all the attachments (trainer, ELE and LED wrinkle reducer). With the trainer attachment sessions take between 5 to 15 or 20 minutes, 5 to 10 minutes with the ELE, and 5 to 25 minutes with the LED. I’ve calculated the overall start-up effort for each attachment in the table below. Here’s how it breaks down:

Treatment 60-day start-up regimen start-up weekly effort Total start-up effort
Trinity with Trainer attachment 5 to 20 minutes per day,
5 days per week
25 minutes to 1:40 hours 3.5 to 14 hours
ELE attachment 5 to 10 minutes per day,
5 days per week
25 minutes to 50 minutes 3.5 hours
LED attachment 5 to 25 minutes per day,
5 days per week
25 minutes to 2:40 hours 3.5 to 17 hours

If you form the habit, the 5-minute basic trainer routine is easy to fit in most days. It’s relaxing and pampering. But with the 15/20-minute advanced routine (which I do because I want best results), it’s time consuming. Add the ELE routine and each session takes 30 minutes. Add in the LED on top and you could spend up to 50 minutes total on one day’s session. Yikes! 😅

Combing the ELE and the big-balls trainer routines is time consuming.

TIP: To make it more manageable, begin the 60-day start-up for each attachment once you’re in the maintenance phase of the other. It’s still time consuming, but easier to fit in.  

Maintenance at two or three sessions per week is more manageable, but if you use all the attachments it’s still rather a big commitment you must make time for.

Treatment Ongoing effort p/w Ongoing effort p/m
Trinity with Trainer attachment 3 sessions per week
15 minutes to 1 hour per week
1 to 4 hours per month
ELE attachment 3 sessions per week
15 to 30 minutes per week
1 to 2 hours per month
LED attachment 3 sessions per week
15 minutes to 1:15 hours per week
1 to 5 hours per month

Also, if after the start-up you don’t see the results you want, Nuface suggest you keep going with five sessions per week. It won’t do any damage to your skin. And the more you use it the better and long-lasting your results. So be prepared to keep up the effort!

And it’s important to continue to keep your ATP levels high. That’s a big commitment even after reducing to three or four sessions per week. Watch TV at the same time and it’s much easier to fit in, but it’s no longer something I look forward to.

Advertised results

You may see an immediate depuffing, firming or lifting effect from your sessions. At the beginning of the start-up stage this lasts just a few hours, but it increases with each week of use.

Most results come in small increments as your ATP levels build over the first 60 days so. After 60 days they last between sessions too. Changes include subtly tighter, fuller and fresh-looking skin, wide-awake lifted eyes and brows, fuller lips, smaller pores and softened wrinkles. Mild to moderate sagging of your neck, jawline and jowls can smooth and lift too. Some reviewers even say it’s replaced their use of Botox!

You may notice some improvement after just a week or two or it may take the full start-up duration. And some changes take several months more to see. You may see all these improvements, or just a few. And they vary in impact by individual too.

Take before and after photos so you can see your progress because changes are subtle and gradual.

After the 60-day start-up you can reduce your sessions to maintain your results. Nuface suggest two or three per week, but you may need them more frequently for your best results. The effect of one session lasts between 1 to 3 days.

Next, my 8-month user trial diary results with photos.

User Trial results

First, here’s a bit about my skin concerns and goals.

“I got a unified, bright complexion from my Tria Age Defying laser trial, and now I want to tighten and lift areas of my 40-something year old face. The Nuface is one of only a handful of devices claiming to do this. Here are my before photos and key areas of concern labelled, for the world to see:

My Before Nuface Trinity microcurrent photos: Forward facing shot of my face with my 'issues' highlighted. Ugh.
My mug before I started my Nuface Trinity and ELE home microcurrent trial
My Before Nuface Trinity microcurrent photos: Side facing shot of my face with saggy shin!
Here’s a better view of my saggy chin and jaw area.
You’re welcome.

My #1 concern are lost elasticity causing pre-jowls and flappy neck. They’re not hideously bad, but I see them and they bug me. Nuface say the Trinity helps with mild to moderate sagging. I think this is me and I’m keen to lift and contour my jaw line, jowls and under chin.

I also have large pores around my nose, patches on my cheeks and on my forehead. I’ve had skin like this since a teenager, so I’m not expecting a miracle. But in recent years it’s got worse. And my oily skin accentuates it. I’d like to perfect this and generally look a lot healthier.

I also have horizontal forehead expression lines I’d like to soften. My eyebrows have an active life of their own, and are very difficult to control. So, I may be fighting a losing battle with these.

And finally, I’d like to de-puff, plump and smooth the delicate crêpey skin under my eyes.

I like the Nuface Trinity because it comes with a 90-day money back guarantee from CurrentBody.com. So, that’s where I bought it. This trial starts with the trainer (big balls attachment) and adds the ELE attachment later.

The first 60 days

I don’t see any immediate lifting or tightening effect as some do.

However, my skin quickly feels very hydrated and smooth. That could be the Gold 24K Firm gel or the microcurrent! After the sessions it noticeably depuffs my eyes and shrinks a large pore between my eyebrows so it’s teeny. And maybe the pores around my nose and cheeks shrink during use too.

After 3 weeks, congested skin on the sides of my chin starts to release. A few blemishes appear and blackheads literally scratch out of my skin. Very satisfying!

For the next month I feel the condition of my skin gradually improve. And after 60 days/2 months I do see noticeable improvement as Nuface suggest. This is the best my skin has ever looked. I’ve also started the ELE routine for a couple of weeks now too.

My face is slightly sun kissed in the 2-month comparison photos below.

My Nuface Trinity trial forward facing before photo next to 2 month photo, with improvements labelled.
Photo comparison after finishing the 60-day start-up, super-healthy, dewy, smooth skin.

My skin is clear of imperfections and the small, under-skin bumps and blackheads have gone from my chin. It feels firm and smooth, fuller and with much tighter pores. However, despite identical equipment and lighting, the camera weirdly shows my pores in more detail! It’s as though I’m in HD, baby! 😁

And my skin is beautifully hydrated and dewy. Dewy skin was a thing a few years back, and no matter the products I used, I was always an oily mess. I’ve NEVER had dewy skin like this before. And after just a few weeks using the ELE attachment, my lips are juicy and full with a no-effort pout. 👄

My skin looks its best immediately after a session, but the effects do last a day or two until the next session too.

My forehead expression lines and under eye fine lines are the same. I see slight jawline contouring but my sagging under-chin is still the same.

Extreme close-up of my before &  2-month update photos to show how my skin texture & hydration has improved after using the Nuface Trinity for 2 months.
EXTREME CLOSE-UP: you can see how my skin texture & hydration has improved. My skin looks perky!

I’m part encouraged and part peeved. I love how healthy my skin looks and that pout! But I still have the under-chin sag. So, I contacted Nuface who advise me to keep going with five sessions per week for better results on sagging skin. Phew. This is quite a commitment.

Months 3 to 4

Now I’ve stopped scrutinizing my face daily. I’ve continued with the ELE routine five days per week and I manage the advanced trainer routine about three or four evenings per week. Sometimes, if I’m tired, I just do the basic 5-minute gliding routine. It’s good to have the option.

And I’m very happy with what I see at 4 months.

My skin is still healthy and dewy with no bumps or imperfections. It feels like silk every time I cleanse in the shower. That pout’s still there (yes!) and my cheeks feel firmer and plumper still. My pores are even smaller especially between my eyebrows and around my scar. I see slightly softened under-eye fine lines from the ELE but nothing too drastic. And I like my lifted mouth area and tighter jawline so I don’t notice the pre-jowls anymore. But that loose skin still bugs me under my chin.

Let’s see the changes in the 4-month photos.

My Nuface Trinity trial forward facing before photo next to 4 month photo, with improvements labelled.
Photo comparison at 4 months: Still healthy, dewy, smooth skin. Lifted mouth area, and I’m still pouting au natural!

EXTREME CLOSE-UP: Still perky!

MONTHS 5 TO 8

It’s time to concentrate on that under-chin sag. I use the trainer big-balls every other day (four times a week) with a few extra glides and holds on the neck, under the chin and jawline. I also do the ELE routine afterwards, around lips and eyes hoping to smooth the under-eye area a bit more.

And during month 8 I also tried the CurrentBody Skin LED mask. Wearing this mask for 10 minutes before each microcurrent session puts the results on steriods, adding a unified, radiant glow.

So, let’s check out the 8-month photos.

My Nuface Trinity trial forward facing before photo next to 8 month photo, with improvements labelled.
Photo comparison after 8 months still smooth, healthy & dewy skin.

The healthy glow in the 8 month photos is from the CurrentBody red LED mask. It adds a depth to your skin tone which I’d definitely lost. My skin in the before photo looks slightly yellow in comparison!

Tighter jawline contouring & lifted jowls, but under chin skin not as I hoped.
EXTREME CLOSE-UP: Smaller pores, softened scar, smooth & firm skin, fuller cheeks, lifted mouth & a juicy pout.

So, after 8 months of using the Nuface trainer and ELE attachments here’s my results compared to my initial hopes for the Trinity:

My hopes My results
Lift and contour my jaw line, jowls & under chin. Lifted mouth area & pre-jowls, & slight lift around the jawline
Under chin sag has changed shape but no major improvement here.
Reduce my pore size and smooth out my skin. A massive improvement here. I still have some larger pores but my skin looks fresh, and feels super-smooth & bouncy.
To look a lot healthier. Definitely. My skin looks and feels hydrated, dewy & sooth. My cheeks are firmer. I’ve many fewer blackheads and spots around my chin.
Plump out the forehead lines a bit. Not so much. My overactive eyebrows win.
TIP: Nuface PLUS red light did soften these lines!
De-puff, plump and smooth crêpey eye bag areas. My eyes are less puffy
but the fine lines & crêpey eye bags remain.
BONUS! A full but natural lip pout.

THE NEGATIVES

Here’s a quick review of the negatives I found whilst testing and trialling the Trinity.

First, a few minor niggles. The follow along App tutorials don’t include the neck or match the basic and advanced routines, and sometimes it leaves a metallic taste in your mouth. Lowering the intensity usually helps and I found this disappeared after a few months anyway.

Next, if you’re not big on self-care or have little spare time, you’ll find the Trinity a challenge. That’s because it requires almost daily use and the advanced routine takes a while, plus the other attachments, and phew! Even during maintenance, it still takes more time and effort than rival devices I’ve trialled.

And you may need to continue five daily sessions per week in a bid to get your desired ‘lifted’ results. Because unfortunately, there’s no way to know the speed, breadth and impact of your results. A much lower effort alternative is the Mira-skin system.

I’ve sinced quit microcurrent. If you want to know why and see how my skin’s changed, come check out this article about quitting microcurrent👈.

Hello, I’m ELE and I’ll cost you another £142!
Oh hai! I’m LED, I fight wrinkles but I’ll cost you another £142 too!

Next, deals are good value at around £250. But you must add another £125 to £142 each for the ELE and LED attachments. So, if you need extra help with wrinkles, brows, hooded eyes and lip lines you’re £500 all in. It’s pricey.

Also, the LED attachment is ok for treating a few small trouble spots, but very time intensive to treat your whole face. It’s also hard to cover the entire flat treatment head with your skin, and the lights flash. I find this very irritating even with closed eyes. I much prefer the CurrentBody Skin LED mask that doesn’t flash, is hands-free and does your entire face in just 10 minutes.

You can use cheaper alternatives to the expensive – but lush – Nuface gels.

And finally, I love the leave-on Nuface gels. They replace my usual evening skincare, but they’re very expensive! A 2oz/59ml tube lasts about 1 month when using the Trinity five times a week. The 24K Gold gels are beautiful but add around £32/$39 per month onto your regular skincare routine. Boo. The basic Nuface primer gel is much better value but still a bit pricey compared to cheaper alternatives. I tested a few substitutes – see my thoughts and test results here.

Is the Nuface Trinity worth it?

Yes, I recommend the Nuface Trinity for the healthiest, freshest version of your face. But only if you can commit and make the time for this pampering but demanding self-care ritual.

Yes, if you’re into self-care & have the time to commit!

The Nuface is one of the few home-use devices that can contour and lift mild to moderate sagging skin (although it’s not a guaranteed result). I love how fresh, tight, smooth, dewy and incredibly healthy it’s made my skin. I’m now happy to leave the house without slathering on foundation. It’s one of my favourites and a superb choice to look healthy, fresh and younger.

However, it’s time intensive. It takes longer for some to see their results and you may need to continue with five sessions per week indefinitely depending on your skin type and aim. So, if you don’t have much spare time or can’t commit to regular sessions, then it’s probably not for you. Try the Mira-skin skincare booster and CurrentBody LED mask alternatives for a low effort schedule.

Here’s a quick round-up of the pros and cons from this review:

  • Quality, robust & easy to use
  • Soothing & pampering simple routines
  • Quick 5-minute basic routine
  • You can do it whilst watching TV
  • No pain or skin irritation!
  • Very nourishing leave-on Nuface gels
  • Some see small instant effects
  • ELE attachment for eye & mouth area
  • One of the few devices to lift brows, hooded lids, neck & jowls
  • Clinically proven & FDA-cleared
  • 2-year warranty
  • 90-day money-back guarantee
  • Time intensive 15-minute advanced routine
  • And even more so with the ELE & LED routines
  • Results may take longer than the advertised regimen
  • It’s an ongoing commitment
  • You may not see results in all your desired areas
  • High intensities can leave a metallic taste in your mouth
  • Expensive Nuface gels (use a cheaper alternative)
  • The App doesn’t include the neck glides & holds
