Combining at-home anti-aging devices: NuFACE, NEWA, Myolift, Microneedling, and more

Updated: Oct 16


When combining different anti-aging tools, it's important first to consider your goals. I feel strongly that we need to choose one or two areas 'anti-aging concerns' or 'gripes', and focus on those for a minimum of three months after which time we can evaluate and continue or switch to begin to address another 'concern'.


To use these charts, simply start by identifying the thing you want to focus on from the top column in pink. Then look at the different ✔️ to see which devices are the best match. Consider what you already have in your anti-aging device arsenal, what your budget is, and how much time you want to commit. For more detail on which device is best for which concern, see At-home skincare devices: Which is right for you?


Once you've committed to one device you can certainly add other tools into the mix. Again, my advice is to focus on one concern and give the tools their time to work (Rome wasn't built in a day, nor is new collagen!!) Consult this second table to evaluate whether the second tool you have in mind 'plays well' with your initial tool. Note how well LED plays with EVERY other modality - that's one of the many reasons it's a true favorite of mine!)





Generally, the reason why something will appear in the 'No, don't combine' section is that it works at the same level (typically collagen induction) as your first choice device. Collagen induction can't be rushed and, in fact, we can do more harm than good if we try to deploy to many different tools at once!


If you're working on two different areas, say crows feet and sagging jaw, you're absolutely free to use two 'conflicting' devices at the same time - just make sure they're in different areas!


Lastly, there are often exceptions to most rules. In the pursuit of clarity I left out gray areas as much as possible and just kept some devices separate. Feel free to push the boundaries if you feel you understand the modality and the nuances of the contraindication.
