Review, Photos: ReFa PRO Platinum Electronic Roller Micro-current Device
Did you know that an extremely low electrical current flows naturally through human skin? And that this current is always present and doesn’t cause the skin to experience any sense of pain? According to the makers of ReFa PRO Platinum Electric Roller ($320.00), “this current is said to constitute one of the key factors that serves to preserve healthy, beautiful skin.” To that end, the ReFa PRO generates an extra-low level microcurrent that very closely resembles the body’s natural current and produces a barely perceptible stimulus to the touch.
ReFa PRO has been created to replicate the procedures performed by professional aestheticians. It incorporates a three-dimensional, V-configured kinetic design, which successfully reproduces the aesthetician’s suction treatment techniques for handling a wide skin area. According to the literature, “ReFa PRO is designed, above all, with natural ease of operation and user comfort in mind. Ball bearing placement garnered careful consideration to ensure smooth rotation. Stress generated by rolling resistance has been minimized. The shape of the structure in the handle, characterized by a unique user-friendly grip fit, is the result of repeated tests conducted under different conditions to identify the shape that provides maximum ease of use and the best grip fit.” All this results in a product that enables you to “enjoy aesthetician-level skin care in the comfort of your living room, bedroom, bathroom… or wherever you like.”
Sounds a bit like science class, doesn’t it? The roller came with clear instructions for how to use on both the face and body, though I must admit at first I was confused because I could not figure out how to turn it on. Guess what? It doesn’t turn on in the conventional sense. It’s solar powered and works without a switch or plug in. When they say ‘ease of operation,’ they are not wrong. I tried the ReFa PRO several times over the course of a couple of days, both on my face and body.
I liked the feeling of the slight suction along my skin; it was both relaxing yet invigorating too. It was indeed easy-to-use and provided a nice little pick-me-up. I did not, however, notice any difference in skin tone, either on my face or body. And given the hefty price ticket, I did not think the cost was commensurate with the effectiveness of the product. Yes, it’s a pleasant addition to a beauty routine, but unless you have limitless resources and/or money to burn, I consider this an optional purchase.
