R5 is an anhydrous serum with a velvety texture that will leave skin immediately softer and firmer. The formula has been designed to provide skin with immediate “plumping” thanks to the moisturizing action provided by microencapsulated Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The microencapsulation preserves the “molecular integrity” of the HA so that it is not lost before it can actually reach the deeper layers of the skin. The “molecular protective capsule” transfers the pure active ingredient into the second layer of the skin, and once it meets the water present there, the HA is released and can bind to the water, expanding and carrying out its cosmetic action. The result is instant yet genuinely plumps, softens and firms. R5 can be used on the whole face, even in the most delicate areas (eye and lip contour).
Tips for use/application:
R5 serum has been specifically formulated to be applied using the D2 (Thermal-Vibration Face Massaging) device, which, in addition to facilitating penetration of the deepest layers of the skin, intensifies the serum’s effects. Using the device is incredibly easy:
Phase 1 – Thoroughly cleanse and dry face, neck and décolleté. Put a small amount of R5 serum onto the conductor in order to facilitate the movement of the device on your face during the skin pre-warming phase. N.B.: All mìsula® serums and creams use an airless dispenser which provides the correct amount of product for a single use. To dispense the R5 serum simply twist the top of the tube: the movement will push the nozzle and button out. A light push of the button will dispense the correct amount of product.
Phase 2 – Press the on button for 3 seconds. You will hear a beep and the warming function light will come on. This means that the device is on and therefore you can start to gently pre-warm your face, forehead, neck and décolleté for about a minute. Remember to remove glasses when using the device and to never use it on damaged skin. Do not massage the same area for too long.
Phase 3 – Now your pores are temporarily open and your skin is ready for treatment to begin. Apply a dose of R5 serum to your face, or more if you intend to extend treatment to your neck and décolleté, and press the on button again for a second. The “thermal vibration” function light will come on, the device will start alternating vibration and you will hear another beep. Now you can start to gently massage your face, neck and décolleté for another minute, applying light pressure and concentrating on areas with wrinkles. Keep your eyes closed while massaging around the eye contour area.
Phase 4 – Press the on button again for a second. The cooling function light will come on and you will hear a beep. The device stops alternating thermal vibration and starts to cool down, lowering the temperature to 6C°. You will feel a very pleasant sensation: your skin will naturally react to the cold by closing its pores and all the active ingredients from the serum will be retained deep inside the skin, where they will gradually start to perform their function. Continue massaging your face for another minute.
Phase 5 – Press the on button again. The cooling function light and the thermal-vibration function light will come on. The cooling function will continue to work and the thermal vibration function will kick back in. Continue massaging until you hear a beep (2 minutes). The device will turn off automatically. The session is over. Gently tap your face with your fingertips to help absorb any excess serum.
N.B.: Every selected function works for two minutes. If you exceed this time, the device will automatically turn off. If you exceed the two minutes by mistake and the device turns off, simply start from the beginning and repeat the steps until you reach the desired phase.
