3. Thoroughly cleanse face.
4. Apply serum.
5. Turn device on at the right depth for your desired treatment.
6. Run the device over skin in all directions (up and down, side to side, and diagonally) about 5 times in each direction. Extra treatment can be done to scars or deep wrinkles.
After treatment, you can to apply a hyaluronic acid mask (before vitamin C serum) 15 to 20 minutes if the skin feels tight, which gives skin a nice moisture boost.
