Anti-aging that Delivers Healthy, Rejuvenated Skin

Skin naturally ages. The reduced elasticity, wrinkles, facial lines, age spots, blotching—the signs of aging are visible on the skin and humans have been trying to reverse the effects of aging for a very long time. A decade ago, Silk’n dedicated its collective scientific and engineering efforts to making the best clinical technologies accessible to the at-home market. The result was two of the most revolutionary anti-aging devices available, the FaceFX and the Titan.

Our Health Canada approved, safe and affordable devices use modern technologies that have been successfully deployed by medical professionals and the cosmetic industry. By developing a line of at-home devices, Silk’n helps you avoid the dreaded “miracle cures” that will cost you time, money and stress due to their inability to solve your skincare challenges.

Marrying amazing anti-aging devices with skincare knowledge is a proven recipe to reduce the appearance of aging. In this Resource Centre, you will discover expert opinion and gain access to a variety of information about Silk’n devices and how skin ages. You can also learn why certain technologies and treatments have been unsuccessful in making your skin look younger.

Our devices and resources can help you reach your skincare and beauty goals. They are designed to help you feel confident and look your best.

Skin Rejuvenation & Anti-aging Devices

Silk’n has two anti-aging devices, the FaceFX and the Titan, that can successfully tighten and lift skin to reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet and facial lines. These devices are known for delivering dependable results via non-invasive treatments that cost less than a spa or clinical treatments. Neither device requires injections as both naturally improve the appearance and health of your skin.

To use the FaceFX anti-aging product, perform treatments 3 times a week for 4 weeks. Each treatment session should last 15-20 minutes. Once you move onto a maintenance phase, you need to only perform treatments once a week for 15-20 minutes. To treat your entire body, pair the FaceFX with the Silhouette.

The Titan is an anti-aging product that lifts facial contours and strengthens your skin from the inside out. The Titan is efficient, safe and you won’t need any time to recover after treatment. By performing 2 sessions a week for 10 weeks, you will notice an improvement in your skin texture. After 10 weeks, treat once every two weeks to maintain results.

The FaceFX can be used to treat cheeks, forehead, neck, around the mouth and is adept at reducing dreaded crow’s feet. The Titan is specialized for the cheeks, upper lip, forehead, jawline, neck and around the eyes.

One of the best things about using either device, is just how relaxing and enjoyable the treatments are. The heat and massaging effect of moving the device around the skin is quite pleasant – we’re sure you’ll enjoy it!


How Our Products Work

There are a lot of factors that contribute to the aging of skin. Time, weather, genetics and skincare (or lack thereof) can all expedite the appearance of aging on your face, neck, arms and legs. Young skin inevitably grows old and over time takes longer to renew and produce the necessary chemicals to rejuvenate.

The FaceFX is a light emitting diode (LED) device that improves the tone and texture of your skin with Home Fractional Red Light Therapy, which combines red light and healing dermal heat. This device features 24 red light circles that emit energy through a stainless-steel treatment surface that easily glides on skin.

This technology operates in two ways:

      1. It works skin’s outermost layer to improve tone and texture.

     2. It penetrates below skin’s surface to treat the source of blemishes.

The Titan is engineered to harness the power of three complimentary energies to stimulate the growth of healthy cells.

These three energies and their functions are:

     1. Infrared technology (IR) improves texture by treating the outer layer of skin.

     2. Red Light LED spurs collagen restoration in the dermis layer of skin.

     3. Bi-Polar Radio Frequency reaches the deepest layer of tissue to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles.

The Titan can sense damaged tissue and then provide treatment to heal it. It is programmed to warm the skin to activate its natural ability to renew cells. With each treatment, your skin will look and feel healthier, and people will be convinced that you discovered the fountain of youth.

For superior results, your anti-aging treatment plan should include both the FaceFX and the Titan.

Proof is in the Pudding – Real Results

 

You’ll be amazed by the results that you will experience from using either the Titan or the FaceFX as part of your regular beauty routine. Those who have used these devices, call them nothing short of amazing, and attest to how much healthier their skin looks and feels after completing a full treatment.

After only 3-4 treatments, most users experience softer skin with less age-related blemishes. The best results come from proper use of the device and a thorough treatment per the device’s instructions. We recommend reviewing the “Conducting Anti-Aging Treatments” and “Treatment Duration” sections of the Resource Centre to learn more about getting results.    

After only 8 weeks of FaceFX treatments, participants of a clinical study reported:

▪ 91% improvement in skin texture.

▪ 69% reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

▪ 78% reduction in pore size.

While everyone wants instant results, these devices show gradual improvement. You can still enjoy some early returns, but it takes a bit of time to experience the youthful glow and younger looking skin that these devices deliver.

By completing a full treatment with either the Titan or the FaceFX, wrinkles, age spots and frown lines will be reduced.


Aging Progression

We spend a lot of money and so much of our lives trying to look the same age forever. Our health and beauty routines usually feature an assortment of creams, powders, injections and whatever “cure” is popular at the time. Aging is universal and complex and you need to craft a treatment plan that can slow the process. To do so, you need to understand how skin ages and renews and what devices have a proven track record of success.

Skin is an organ that protects vital organs, regulates body temperature and contains nerve receptors. It is key to our immunity since it is the part of our body that interacts with external environments the most.

Skin is comprised of three layers:

▪ Epidermis: The outermost layer, which dictates skin tone.

▪ Dermis: Underneath the epidermis is the dermis, which is made up of tissue, hair follicles and sweat glands.

▪ Hypodermis: This is the deepest layer and it is comprised mostly of fat and connective tissue.

Age impacts the human body in a variety of ways, the most visible being skin. As we age, the epidermis layer becomes thinner and skin loses its colour. At some point, most are inflicted with age and liver spots and elasticity is radically reduced. Exposure to the sun speeds up the process of aging.

The Titan and the FaceFX can help retain facial skin’s youthfulness despite its propensity to wither with age. These devices use safe technologies (see the “How They Work” section) to stimulate collagen and to naturally repair the skin.


Conducting Anti-Aging Treatments

Silk’n devices need to be properly used so that you can receive the expected results. This section of the Resource Centre is designed to guide you through a typical Silk’n anti-aging treatment. The first step is to choose a device. Your options are the FaceFX and the Titan and we even recommend a more thorough treatment that incorporates both devices.

After you’ve chosen a device, you’ll want to start using the recommended treatment plan as soon as possible. Treatments are quick and while results can vary based on the user, committing to a routine increases your chance at success.

For FaceFX anti aging treatments:

Place the treatment surface against skin that is dry, clean and jewelry-free. This will activate the LED light. Applying light pressure, gently move the FaceFX applicator in tight circular motions. You will feel the treatment surface gradually increase in temperature. Perform treatment on a specific area of skin for 5-7 minutes. After each session, we recommend rubbing a small amount of moisturizing cream on your face.

For Titan anti aging treatments:

Remove all jewelry. Apply a thin layer of Silk’n slider gel on the areas you intend to treat. Using the gel is essential as it both moisturizes the skin and connects to the device’s sensor and activates the Radio Frequency Energy. Hold the device to a section of your face and press the start button. Begin at energy level 1 or 2 for the first five minutes, then increase the energy to level 3 to 5, as you become familiar with the device, and how your skin reacts to it’s use, for the last 10 minutes. Move the device in linear and upward motion over the area you want to treat. Be sure to proceed slowly, giving it time to work the skin. Once treatment is complete, wash your face to remove the gel and then rub some lotion on your face or use a facial mask.


Treatment Duration

Often lost in the shuffle of planning skincare treatments is the amount of time a treatment takes for it’s effects to be seen. Treatment duration is an essential component of getting the desired results from using the FaceFX and/or the Titan.  

To use the FaceFX, we recommend conducting treatments that run 15-20 minutes (about 5-7 minutes per zone) at least three times a week for four weeks. At this point, you should be able to move into the maintenance stage, were you decrease your treatments to once a week and treat your entire face for 10 minutes.  

Treatments with the Titan should last about 10-15 minutes for each treatment area, and you can treat as many areas you want in a single session. Perform sessions twice a week for 10 weeks. After completing treatments, immediately start a maintenance program, which for the Titan means decreasing usage to once every 2 weeks with sessions between 10-15 minutes.

Treatment duration is designed to allow sufficient time for skin to reach the appropriate temperature. The first few minutes are spent heating skin cells. Change only occurs once they reach 42 °C. Don’t rush a session or attempt to treat your face in one shot. Instead, target smaller areas allowing skin to reach a consistent heat. Together, the device’s temperature and treatment duration will help renew and rejuvenate your skin. 

Use either device as a quick pick me up, before special events or occasions, to add a little life to your skin.

Stick to a comprehensive treatment plan and your skin will become softer, smoother and tighter over time.
