About Tua Tre'nd
Micro-current electrostimulation exploits a natural physiological principle of the body; the brain naturally stimulates muscles to work through electro-chemical impulses conveyed to the muscle fibres (muscle cells).
In a similar way, Tua tre’nd face conveys special low-voltage micro-currents to the facial muscles and tissues via the patented electrode wand. These micro-currents, which are controlled and absolutely safe, cause passive contraction of the muscles fibres, particularly at the lessused level, and increase the blood circulation to the treated area.
Your skeletal muscle contraction is controlled by the central nervous system (CNS) by means of electro-chemical impulses conveyed through the nervous system. Tua tre’nd face is a treatment that generates specific electrical micro-currents that cause gentle yet deep passive muscle contraction by mimicking and substituting the impulses generated by the CNS. The micro-current is applied at the point where the nerve innervates the muscle fibres (neuromuscular plate).
Tua tre’nd face comprises the most advanced, sophisticated technology for facial micro-current stimulation. There are five facial areas - the cheek bone, lower cheek/jowl, forehead, chin (including jaw line, lower lip and neck) and under eye area - each treated with a specific preprogrammed workout program. Each area program is complete with pre-set parameters such as stimulation frequency, pulse width, contraction times and recovery times. These parameters have been fine tuned and optimised for each facial area according to the muscle thickness and density of that area. For example, the micro-current frequency for the cheek area is different than for the forehead where the muscle is much thinner. This provides you with a more effective treatment and you only need to regulate the micro-current intensity, everything else is pre-programmed for you.
Benefits of Electrostimulation
• Selective stimulation of muscle group.
By positioning the electrodes correctly on the different muscles, a specific stimulation can be achieved on the selected muscle, reducing the activity of the adjacent muscle to a minimum. This is unlike what happens in the case of voluntary ‘manual’ contraction, where the muscles always work according to specific muscle chains and synergies.
• Optimum intensity work-out for muscle fibres.
By setting micro-current intensities that are suited to the targeted muscle group (ie achieve a comfortable visible contraction), you will achieve an optimum intensity workout, something difficult to achieve through voluntary contraction.
• Time/workload efficiencies
It is possible to concentrate a large number of specific intensity stimulations within a short period of time. A high volume of work is achieved that is not otherwise possible within the same time period when performing traditional muscle activity programs.
• Fast, noticeable results.
With regular use (following these instructions), noticeable results will be achieved within two to twelve weeks of use. A firmer, tauter, more lifted looking face and neck will be yours.
How It Works
Tua tre’nd face is a complete micro-current electrostimulation device for specifically treating the face. Tua tre’nd face features a special patented electrode wand for positioning on the various facial areas and the neck. The output generates a sinusoidal type micro-current at special optimised frequencies designed to provide the best results and the most comfortable stimulation of the delicate facial muscles.
The workout programs are completely pre-programmed with specific parameters such as stimulation frequency, pulse width, contraction times and recovery times; only the stimulation intensity of the microcurrent has to be regulated.
This edition is exclusive to Tina Richards Ltd and has several
advanced features including:
• Adjustable micro-current intensity
The stimulation intensity of the micro-current can be quickly accelerated up or down by continuously pressing on the up or down arrows (rather than at single intervals).
• Automatic memory function
When the intensity of the micro-current has been adjusted up or down during an exercise, this intensity is recorded in the program’s memory function while the device is still switched on. This is useful if you are repeating a program or switching sides between programs. For example, if you adjusted the intensity for Program 1 (cheek bone) on the right side of your face then finished that program and wanted to move to the left cheek bone, the device would record your chosen level of intensity so that you could start the program on the left cheek at the same level.
• Silent Use mode
To avoid disturbance to others while using Tua tre’nd face, the silent use mode can be activated to stop the beep sound emanating from the device.
Tua tre’nd face features a special patented electrode wand that has been ergonomically designed for optimum positioning on the various facial areas. The mobility and flexibility of the 2 stainless-steel electrodes (covered with special cellulose contact domes) means they can adapt to all facial areas and have perfect contact with the bends and contours of the different physical configurations of the face and neck.

Q. What does Tua tre'nd feel like?
A. It is very pleasant – the sensation is a smooth soothing vibration and a gentle ‘pull’. The sponges give a soft comfortable feeling and there is no risk of metal-on-skin shocks or jarring.
Q. Is Tua tre'nd safe?
A. Tua tre'nd is completely safe. Professional electronic muscle stimulators have been used in hospitals, clinics and salons for over forty years. Tua tre'nd units are clinically tested by a respected scientific research team and comply with strict international safety standards and quality controls. Tua tre'nd is FDA approved in America. Although extremely effective the Tua tre'nd current is actually considered to be low.
Q. When can I expect to see results?
A. This depends on your starting muscle tone. You may start to notice the difference in as little as 2 weeks! Individual results will vary. Typically results can be seen in the first 3 months.
Q. How often do I need to use Tua tre'nd to get really good results?
A. To give a kick start, use your Tua tre'nd faithfully for at least 5 treatments per week for the first 3 months (if you have very stubborn jowls you can continue this 'kick start' program for as long as necessary), then start using every other day. Finally use 2-3 times a week for maintenance.
Q. How long does the session take?
A. Approximately 15-20 minutes a day is required. We recommend allowing 30 minutes at the start. Tua tre’nd face has five face programs which work out five different facial zones, including the neck. The duration of each exercise is 135 seconds, that is, 2 minutes and 15 seconds. This is the perfect time to allow for facial wand placement, micro-current intensity selection and workout time to the area. If you wish to do longer, you can simply repeat the program to the same side, however, 2 minutes per exercise is the optimum time to achieve great results. You may use your Tua tre'nd more than once a day but you must allow at least 4 hours between workout sessions.
Q. For how long do I need to use the Tua tre'nd at least 5 times per week?
A. It goes without saything that this differs from person to person. Generally to achieve a really good lift it is essential that you use your Tua tre'nd faithfully for at least 5 treatments per week, during the first 3 months. You may see noticeable results sooner hoever if there are particular areas of concern (eg stubborn jowls) it may take a little longer than 3 months to get ‘facelift’ results. Once you are delighted with noticeable results, start using every other day. Then 2-3 sessions per week will maintain the lift and tone.
Q. How long do the lifting and smoothing effects of Tua tre'nd last?
A. The muscles of the face and neck will remain strong with continued used. And the skin will continue to benefit too. Each month you will notice more and more improvement. The results are cumulative, just like exercises for the body.
Q. How do I know I have found the correct application points?
A. Firstly, you will know when you are on the correct points because it ‘feels’ right and feels so good. Secondly, you just mimic the application points in the Handbook and DVD provided and you will find the correct application points with ease. The application area of the facial wand is large and, because the micro-current frequencies are optimised and zone-specific, less precision is needed with respect to application. This makes it much easier to find the contact points on your face. Furthermore, during the contraction you can move the contact sponges of the wand along the program area.
Q. Can I do my Tua tre'nd workouts incorrectly?
A. It is actually very difficult for you to do your Tua tre'nd workouts incorrectly. You will easily do them correctly because they are so simple to do. And you are provided with a comprehensive Handbook, DVD and DVD excerpt online. And there are no sticky pads and wires or conductive gels/lotions to mess about with – you have total freedom and control with Tua tre'nd.
Q. When should Tua tre'nd not be used?
A. Tua tre'nd must not be used by anyone suffering from multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, a nervous tissue disorder, an acute medical condition or if you have an implanted pace maker. Medical advice from your doctor must be obtained with the following conditions: skin diseases, cuts, recent scar tissue, visible treated veins, and loss of normal skin sensation or swollen glands in the area to be treated. Remember: If in doubt, please consult your doctor.
Q. I was told that facial exercising can cause wrinkles?
A. Tua tre'nd has been clinically proven to lift tone and smooth your face. When you were told about “facial exercising causing wrinkles”, you were actually being told about manual facial exercises which are often performed incorrectly since they can be difficult to do. The Tua tre'nd electronically and effortlessly does your facial workout for you safely and correctly. Also, those practitioners who promote invasive anti aging treatments involving a particular toxin, will naturally be ‘critical’ of electro- muscular stimulation (ems) of the face since they know it works and hence ems is serious competition.
Q. Is there a warranty?
A. All units are under one year warranty.
Q.Will I get faster results by turning up the intensity?
A. We recommend that you turn up the intensity until you achieve a visible comfortable contraction – after this, increased intensity is superfluous to requirement.
Q. Can I use Tua tre'nd lying down?
A. Best results are obtained while sitting comfortably in an upright position however you use it while reclining if you wish to.
Q. Sometimes I feel a slight tingling sensation in my teeth?
A. The Tua tre'nd signal may have made contact with a metal tooth filling. Simply slide the sponge slightly away from this area. Clients who have metal fillings report that this tingling stops as facial muscles become stronger.
Q. Is Tua tre'nd compatable with my other facial products?
A. Yes, after using your Tua tre'nd you can apply any of your favourite facial products. Just remember to use an oil free cleanser before you use your Tua tre'nd.
Q. What is the difference between Tua Viso and Tua tre'nd?
A. Tua tre'nd is the new generation firming and toning device. Tua tre'nd uses similar micro-current technology to work out the less used muscles of the face and neck as Tua Viso, however, technology has moved on since the advent of Tua Viso so we are delighted that we now have a more sophisticated version with improved technology.
The micro-current frequency of Tua tre'nd has been optimised according to the muscle thickness and density of the five zones of the face and neck: the cheek, lower cheek, forehead, jaw line & neck and under eye areas. In each of these areas, the muscles have a different thickness and density e.g. the frontalis muscle of the forehead is much thinner than that of the cheek muscles. So with Tua tre'nd each facial zone has its own microcurrent frequency otpimised to that area.
Similarly, the length of the contraction time has been optimised according to which facial zone you are working on - all pre-programmed for you! This means that Tua tre'nd offers a perfectly optimised thorough workout for each facial zone. In Tua Viso, the micro-current frequency and time of contraction is the same in all areas, meaning application points on the face are much more specific.
Another unique feature of Tua tre'nd is the special patented electrode wand that has been ergonomically designed for optimum positioning on the various facial areas. The mobility and flexibility of the 2 stainless steel electrodes (covered with special cellulose contact domes) means they can adapt to all facial areas and have perfect contact with the bends and contours of the different physical configurations of the face and neck.
The application area of the facial wand is large and, because the micro-current frequencies are optimised and zone-specific, much less precision is needed with respect to application on the face and the neck. This makes it much easier to find the contact points on your face as you have to do with Tua Viso. Furthermore, during the contraction you can move the contact sponges of the wand along the program area. This feature is exclusive to Tua tre’nd – the only device in the world to do this!
All this means that you can learn how to use Tua tre'nd more quickly and more easily and, as you are working on "zones" rather than specific points, we believe that Tua tre'nd is probably more efficacious and that you will start seeing quicker results and therefore reach the three times a week maintenance programme earlier.
It is possible to use Tua tre'nd in conjunction with Tua Viso. We recommend you use Tua Viso for the revitalising treatment (hold timer button down, refresh sponges with lots of water and pass Tua Viso lightly over the whole of the area you are working on) for 2-3 minutes. This works effectively on the face, neck, decollete and even over the backs of your hands. Then you could use Tua tre'nd for the deeper muscle stimulation. This is what most of the Tina Richards team are now doing.
