People who are trying to better their skin are already using a variety of skincare products. Their makeup counter may be filled with anti-aging serums, moisturizers, facial masks and whatnot. There are also skincare products that are meant to be used in the morning or in the evening. Some are used daily and some once or twice a week.
Sometimes, we do get overwhelmed by the wide array of brands that are available for consumers. Will those high-end products deliver the results they are promising? Or does drugstore products compare to those expensive brands?
Whatever skincare topicals you use, we all want to see one thing. Results.
Yearly, consumers spend billions of dollars in skincare and cosmetics. It is a thriving industry and rightly so. Skincare problems are confidence-busters and results to low self-esteem.(1) We all need to take care of our skin so we can feel confident in facing the world. Now, if only there’s a way to make sure the hundreds and thousands of dollars we spend on skincare products actually deliver results.
Why Infusion Matters
To boost the effectiveness of any skincare topicals, it must be absorbed by the skin. It is no use that it only sits on the top layer of the skin and will eventually shed off. Some ingredients are too big to be absorbed by the skin that is why it must be infused correctly.
JeNu by Trophy Skin aids in this objective. By using the power of ultrasonic waves, it drives any skincare ingredient deep into the skin to get it to the layers where it is needed.
There are some people that are wary of trying this treatment, but it is actually a very safe process. It feels like getting a facial massage while gently stimulating the skin. No pain or discomfort and definitely no burning sensation.
What is Ultrasonic Facial
Ultrasonic facials are commonly used in professional spas to exfoliate and rid the skin of impurities and excess oil. After exfoliation, ultrasonic infusion can also be used to help serums permeate deep into the skin.
If you are looking for an ultrasonic exfoliation device, you may check out our ultrasonic spatula. The JeNu Plus on the other hand is not an exfoliation device but an infuser. It helps improve the absorption of skincare topicals and make them work even better than before. It gives out 356,000 pulses of ultrasonic energy with the help of the microsphere conducting gel or infusion gel.

Is it Safe to Use
The ultrasonic power of JeNu is safe to be used daily and it does not cause any threat to the health of consumers. Think of it like a brush you use to apply your skincare products, only that it pulses to get the products deep in the skin. It does not cause any pain or discomfort. If you have any pre-existing health concerns, you may discuss with your healthcare professional regarding the use of this treatment.
The JeNu Plus propels your skincare serum 6x more into the skin than just applying your favorite serums by hand. The result is you get more bang for your buck and you see results faster. No matter what brand you choose or what active ingredient you need, the JeNu ultrasonic infuser aims to improve its absorption.
How to Use the JeNu Plus Infuser
Using the JeNu infuser is so simple. First, make sure that the skin you are treating is clean. Wash your face with your preferred facial wash. Pat your skin dry.
Remember the rule in layering your skincare products. You have to start with the lightest or thinnest product first before applying heavier creams or oils. That way, you make sure that every product has a chance to penetrate your skin before locking everything in.
You may start by using a toner. Go for toners that do not dry the skin. Products that leave your skin tight and dry strips the natural oils of your skin and will later on give you a parched look. It may also lead to irritation or skin sensitivities.
After toning, you may put on your favorite serum. Some people are clueless on what serums do. Think of it as a food for your skin. It is packed with active ingredients that target specific skin problems. Depending on what your skin needs, you may opt to get a Vitamin C Serum to help brighten your complexion. You may also invest in serums with hyaluronic acid to help plump up the skin and prevent wrinkles. If you are prone to breakouts, you may look for tea tree serums or those with retinol.
After putting on your serum, you may now layer your moisturizer. Even if you have oily skin, you should not skip moisturizing. It is vital to help your skin look more fresh and it balances the oils that your skin produce.
Depending on what time of the day, you may proceed with putting on sunscreen or go put on your night creams. Again, brands doesn’t matter. Choose the products you use based on what you need and not just because it is popular. What works for others may not work for everyone else so you have to do your own research. If you already have a favorite product, great! You can keep using the brands that work best for you, no need to switch brands.
And now you are ready to lock everything in and push the ingredients deep in your skin.
Put a pearl-size amount of the conducting gel on the tip of the infuser. If you are treating a larger area, you may use a dollar-size amount.
Turn on the ultrasonic infuser device by pressing the power button. Gently move the device in a circular motion over the areas you want to treat, one minute at a time. The device has an auto-shut off timer. Repeat pressing the button as you treat your entire face.
Why Use the Conducting Gel
One thing to consider is the use of the conducting gel with this ultrasonic infuser. Ultrasonic energy works best with the brand-approved conducting gel that is why we include a travel-size gel on each JeNu Plus purchase.
You may think it is an added cost and unnecessary but it is vital to use a conducting gel with the JeNu Plus ultrasonic infuser.
The wand gives out pulses of ultrasound energy. This energy is captured at the surface of your skin by the hollow minuscule spheres of protein called microspheres found in the gel. The energy is then used to push the layers of the skincare topicals you applied on your skin.
This results to better penetration of skincare ingredients. Instead of wasting your money and making expensive serums evaporate into thin air, you get 6x better absorption of your skincare topicals. You see better results and no matter what brand you use, you get better value for your money.
Every manufacturer uses their own gel in combination with their product. This gel, like any other topically applied product, could be made of ingredients a person is allergic to. Anyone with known allergies must read the full product ingredient’s list before making a purchase to ensure there are no ingredients that may cause irritation.
Does Ultrasonic Infusion has Restrictions
There are some areas to avoid while using the JeNu Plus device. Do not use this on the eye area because the skin here is very thin. It is best not to use the ultrasonic infuser on the eyelids to prevent damaging the skin.
It is best to speak with a medical professional if you have any major health concerns. Pregnant women should consult their doctor before undergoing any ultrasonic treatment. Those with a pacemaker should also consult their doctors too.
Finally, avoid using this device on active acne or over any open sores. Doing so might lead to infection and may cause discomfort. Wait until the wound or sores have closed up and started to heal. Rubbing the device with the conductive gel over open sores is not recommended and should be avoided.
