Disclosure: Ad. The R1 PRO Facial RF Skin Tightening Device is a sample of my choice from AMIRO. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.


Why I Decided to Make a Review of the AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF Skin Tightening Device

Recently, you see a lot of advertisement of various skin tightening devices all over Instagram. Most of them feature young women with youthful skin, which you would expect according to their age. There were only few posts in my feed where content creators over 40 featured such a gadget. So I wondered why the Millenia were considered as potential customers, but not the Gen-X and Baby-Boomer.


In other words, I was curious what the AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF Skin Tightening Device could/would do for us. Therefore, I decided to offer my 61-years old face as a guinea pig, and to share my findings with you.



Description of the AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF Skin Tightening Device

Now, how do skin tightening devices work? Typically, they apply one or more of these technologies:

  • Radiofrequency (RF),
  • Electrical muscle stimulation microcurrents (aka EMS),
  • Infrared (IR) light,
  • Red LED light.


The AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF skin tightening device combines these four state-of-the-art technologies all together to reduce wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and create a radiant glow.



What Is RF Technology?

In general, radiofrequency refers to the oscillation rate of an alternating electric current, electromagnetic field or mechanical system at frequencies between 0.02 MHz and 300000 MHz. Recently, the FDA approved the RF technology for beauty treatments. Herein, radiofrequency treatments serve to improve the skin’s overall appearance by increasing collagen production and thereby reducing fine wrinkles. As a result, the skin appears tightened, toned, fresher, and more youthful.


The R1 PRO uses radiofrequencies of 1, 1.5 and 2MHz, which many clinic devices use too.



How Do Electrical Muscle Stimulation Microcurrents Work in Skin Treatment?

EMS refers to very small (light) electrical currents that stimulate muscle build-up in the face. As a result, the skin looks lifted and tightened.


What Are the Benefits of IR in Skin Treatment?

The warmth of infrared radiation acts anti-inflammatory. In medical applications, IR serves to treat adverse skin conditions like acne, edema, psoriasis, or scars. In beauty applications, IR repairs muscle tissues and reduces stretchmarks and fine wrinkles.


How Does Red LED Light Improve the Skin Conditions?

Medical studies showed that red LED light therapy after skin resurfacing surgery lowers redness, swelling, and bruising, and accelerates the healing process. Red LED lights improve the skin appearance because the light stimulates collagen production, which is also important for healing wounds.


How to Use the AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF Device?

Of course, you have to read the user manual. I checked it in English, German, and French. In all these languages, it is well written and easy to follow.

To give you a broad idea how to use the R1 Pro Facial RF gadget, I created this video. However, by no means, it’s of course not a substitute for studying the manual. Also check with your doctor whether you can use the device.

My Experience with the AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF Device

The device not only met my expectations (refreshed glowing skin), but exceeded them by far. I have suffered from tight facial muscles since years; My face’s muscles felt very relaxed after the massage. It is my understanding that such relaxation increases blood circulation, and as a result, the transport of beneficial nutrients to the skin.

The warmth of the IR feels great, especially, now in the cold season. After the massage, my skin shows a healthy nice natural glow. I couldn’t fake this glow with makeup.

Now, what about the fine lines and sagging skin? Compare the before/after results and judge yourself. Full disclosure: I always considered lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin as normal and beautiful signs of life.

Because I have the device since a week, I can’t comment on the long-term results of the application. However, I will update this post and publish an update on Instagram early next year.



What Are the Costs for Professional Non-Invasive Facial Skin Treatment?

After a brief search I found the following. At spas, facials cost $63 on US-average. Typically, clinics charge between $100 and $3000. Because lasting results require regular appointments the costs add up fast.



Price-Performance Ratio of the AMIRO R1 PRO

As obvious from the sections on how do skin tightening devices work, gadgets differ not only with respect to the technology, but also due to the combinations of technology applied. Therefore, it is hard to say where the R1 PRO Facial RF falls within the price range of similar at-home skin-tightening gadgets.

Usually, the R1 PRO Facial RF comes with a 70 ml gel tube, a USB cable for charging, and an easy-to-understand user manual. Currently, it comes with a free gift of $79.99 in value. This gift includes an additional 70 ml gel tube, 5 makeup brushes, and a cosmetic bag.

AMIRO has free worldwide shipping. Currently, this device is on sale for $379.99 with $50 off its regular price of $429.99. This means you save about 12% when you order now.


Given that the AMIRO R1 PRO Facial RF releases my facial muscles, which feels really refreshing and gives me a great natural glow, the device is worth its money in my opinion. I love the glow of the skin after the application. Based on these results I can recommend the device without hesitation to my friends and family.
