DermaWand is a handheld device that claims to use RF (Radio Frequency) Technology to make fine lines and wrinkles disappear. They insist if you use DermaWand twice daily for three minutes, you will see dramatic results; they offer a tempting 30-day free trial to get you to see for yourself how it works.
What is RF Technology
RF Technology uses very low radio frequencies that they claim will deeply penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of collagen making the skin look younger and tighter. This is a fairly new technology, and results from some studies seem to be promising. However, these studies have had very few participants and were not randomized, controlled trials.
How DermaWand Works
DermaWand is a consumer version of an RF Machine, delivering lower level radio frequencies along with a gentle massage of 168,000 cycles per second. To use DermaWand, they instruct you to use anywhere on the body you’d like to tighten up and move Derma Wand in a circular fashion around the area you want to affect twice a day for 3 minutes.
They state the emitted thermal heat “may help to support the skin’s natural healthy look” and the massage will “bathe your skin” in oxygen while you are using it. They state that enriched oxygen is a natural cleanser and helps give you a youthful appearance.
The DermaWand “Free Trial”
Although DermWand says they guarantee it 100% and that you have a 30-day trial with free shipping to receive it, you should be aware:
- You will be charged $9.95 “processing and handling” fee
- After the 30 days, you will be charged $39.95 plus $14.95 S&H, should you decide to keep it, and then billed $39.95 2 times more for a total of $144.75
- If you don’t want to be charged the $9.95 fee, you can pay $134.80 at once (which includes $14.95 shipping)
- If you do decide to return DermaWand, they will send you a prepaid envelope via email or regular mail to send it back to them
- They will keep your $9.95
DermaWand offers a 1-year warranty if you pay in installments but a 2-year warranty if paid at once.
Bottom Line: Is DermaWand a Good Way To Get Rid of Wrinkles?
RF Technology is currently very “hot” and DermaWand is a very popular product, primarily amongst women mid-thirties and above who are looking to recapture the glow of youth.
Reviews of DermaWand are generally mixed. There are those that swear it works great and makes them look years younger and then there are just as many that say it did nothing for their wrinkles. Here are a few takeaways:
RF Technology seems to be mildly effective at the very least, primarily on skin that doesn’t have heavy wrinkles. In other words, it only works on younger skin.
Some of those that used DermaWand noticed a difference instantly, while others claimed it took a bit of time. Many stated the treatment itself took much longer than the 3 minutes advertised.
DermaWand claims to be safe, except for those with rosacea, broken capillaries, a pacemaker, or are pregnant. While there have been some irate consumers complaining of skin irritating or burning from this device, these could not be verified (there were no such issues listed in Amazon.com consumer reviews, for example).
