The Conture Face & Neck Kinetic Skin Toning System is one of the most popular devices sold on QVC.
We were so curious: What makes this hand held skin care treatment product so wildly popular?
A DIY Skin Care Pro-Style Treatment:
It’s not really a surprise that people are buying the Conture Face & Neck Kinetic Skin Toning System because this device is an at-home version of the type of treatment that formely could only be found in doctor’s offices.
Now, with a bit of time and money, you can possibly claim similar results at home, including some immediate ones, and an eventual reduction in the look of crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles, and increased facial firmness.
How Does it Work?
It sounds like a miracle, but there is no magic involved.
The device works on suction. Isometric compression combined with ultra-low frequency sonic vibrations gently stimulate the skin.
A gentle vacuum action lifts and releases the skin zone within the treatment cup at the tip of the device.
Ultra-Low Frequency Vibrations radiate outward from the treatment cup to supposedly help your skin absorb topicals such as lotions and creams which you use with, and after treatments.
Think of it more simply like a high tech skin massage for your face. When you feel a flight suction like a gentle pinch, you know Couture is working.
How to Use Conture:
There are several easy steps that you use, along with three serum/lotions during and post treatment. We added a fourth (SPF 30) also by Conture because SPF protection is essential always!
Step One: Cleanse Skin
Cleanse your face before using the Conture device.
Step Two: Select the tip & Setting
Press the power button on the back of the device to turn on the device and choose the best mode or your focus area.
The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System has three modes selected from a touch-seen panel:
FACE: for use on the jawline, upper lip, chin, jaw, cheek, brow, and forehead. This works for most areas.
MILD: for use on or near delicate skin and under eye area
NECK: for use on neck and décolleté areas
There are two rubber tips for this device. One with a hole in the middle is for specific areas (E.g.around the nose).
The one with an oval opening is for the rest of the face.
*There are two versions of the Conture, a single speed version (new) and the original, 3-speed version
Step Three: Select Your Focus Area(s)
Step Four: Apply the Serum
The Conture comes with a Kinetic Treatment Serum and day and night moisturizers in pre-measured servings in oxygen-free pumps. Don’t rub in the serum (it helps the device glide along your skin).
Step 5: Start the Treatment
Use a lifting upward motion for a minimum of 2-3 minutes at a time per zone. You will know that the device is properly placed and working as you feel the slight suction.
Step 6: Post Treatment
After you’ve treated all the areas you want, apply either the Kinetic AM Ignition Lotion or PM Recovery crème. Both are excellent, just for their moisturizing benefits.
The PM Recovery Creme has a unique blend of encapsulated Retinol, Longevicell, and Adaptonyl.
APPLY SUN (SPF) PROTECTION:
Conture makes other skincare. One we like is the Kinetic Defense SPF30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen ($18) with actives of 13.5% zinc oxide.
This is a versatile broad spectrum sunblock that is also a primer and moisturizer. It ‘s lightweight and designed to work under foundation.
Thumbs up to the unscented, Paraben, Sulfate, Fragrance and Gluten-free formula enhanced with Red Algae and Ergothioneine.
These help deal with free-radicals and other stressors to your skin!
You aren’t getting a lot of product for your $$ but The 0.50 fl. oz. oxygen-free pump and multi-tasking formula makes it the perfect purse and travel companion!
The Bottom Line:
At $200 for the single speed Conture/ $299 for the **3-speed Conture it’s less than packages of salon treatments or a visit to a doctor’s office if you have the budget.
Where To Buy Conture:
You can find the Conture Complete System at QVC, on conture.com/ and other retailers. The prices vary depending on where you buy it and what “package” is being offered.
**For example, on QVC the Couture Anti-Aging Skin Toning System for Face and Neck (QVC Item #A295122), including the Conture device with two treatment heads, USB charging cord, Kinetic Treatment Serum & Kinetic AM & PM cremes is $179 *while supplies last.
