Final thoughts on the fascia blaster

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinteresttumblrmail

I am no longer using the fascia blaster.  I did not see any cellulite improvement, and unfortunately, my skin appears to have aged everywhere I used it. There are these crepey lines in the skin that fold easily and wrinkle like a person at least 20 years older!

I can’t say with certainty that it was the fascia blaster’s fault.  I suspect it had something to do with the fact that my skin was already vulnerable after losing a lot of weight and the fascia blaster simply put too much stress on it with the friction.  And/or maybe it was something missing in my diet.  It could be I’m just getting too damn old!  Maybe it is genetics, I’ve never had great skin, or it is just my luck… I don’t know.  But I do not wish for it to be any worse!

If I were a very vain person I’d probably be devastated.  The truth is that I have struggled with my appearance since I can remember.  Freckles, cystic acne, thin and frizzy hair, pale skin, extra weight…. Trying to be a pretty girl has been hard for someone who was not blessed with beautiful skin, so I can deal with this too.

A few people have posted that they are having good results.  I’m very happy to hear that it is working for some of you.  This is just my experience and you can’t ever accept just one person’s experience as ultimate proof of anything.

So you may wonder where I go from here. I don’t think there is anything that can repair and firm the crepey skin but I am still going to try… As far as cellulite goes, nothing has helped more than weight lifting and losing fat. Hands down squats and lunges and leg curls and dead lifts with nice heavy weights will make for some beautiful legs and help the fat and skin lay nicely. I will try to find a massaging tool that doesn’t create friction on the skin, but rolls more smoothly. And I am going to commit to dry brushing. If anything works – you’ll be the first to know!

  1. Good for you! If you’re within 90 days of purchase, yu can return for a refund. At the very least, will you contact Ashley re your displeasure?

    I continue to use approx. monthly, which keeps pain at bay. Zilch improvement in cellulite though.

    I’ll keep an eye out for the crepey skin. Thanks for the heads up on that!

    • No, it has been well beyond 90 days and since it greatly helped the pain in my legs I can’t say I am completely dissatisfied. It was worth a try… I haven’t heard of too many ladies complain about the crepey skin so you’ll probably be okay, especially if you are only using monthly.

  2. Hi there,
    I’m not too worried about cellulite but wondered if this helped with flabby belly fat. I have ten(ish) pounds I’d like to lose and the belly area is still so flabby from pregnancy. Just wondered if anyone had success with that.
    Thanks!
    Michele

  3. I saw no improvement in trouble spots either. I do, however, use it on my back for areas that tend to get bunched up. Definitely helps. So for that, it’s worth it. I doubt there’s any great miracle product out there. Just hard work and diet. Or surgery 😁

  4. Have you tried Nerium’s Body Firming Cream? I have horrible cellulite and this cream has helped me tremendously. I have tried other products and nothing compares. And it will help your crepey skin issues, sagging skin and smoothness.
    Please go to this site to get more information.

    Good luck!!

  5. I am in my late 40s (haven’t used the fascia blaster) but if you are in my age range at all, the crepey skin on legs and arms and neck is normal. Moisturizer makes it less noticeable or not noticeable. Looks better after a shower. Just grasping at straws here- but it could have been the coconut oil that caused your skin to dry out. While it feels and smells great, adding oil from the outside communicates to your skin to produce less of its own oil. Kind of why oil cleansing works on acne, and similarly that melatonin is ill-advised as a regular supplement because our bodies already make it and will stop if it is supplemented too much.

    • It is certainly possible that any number of factors caused the crepey skin – age, weightloss… but it only appeared after using the fasciablaster and only on the areas I used it often. I guess it could be the coconut oil. I don’t use coconut oil on my skin anymore but the crepey-ness persists. I agree that moisturizer makes it appear less noticeable, but I wonder if dry brushing could help?

  6. I highly recommend alfalfa as a supplement to help with the crepe-y skin. Also, dry skin brushing with a natural bristle brush. You can find lots of websites with how-to info on dry skin brushing.

    Good luck!

    • Thanks Lisa! I tried dry brushing a couple of weeks before the last cruise I took and it appeared to help a little. I think I am going to try a dry brushing challenge to see how much of an improvement I can see before summer!

  7. Solution for your crepey skin!

    I am a skin & laser specialist and just thought I’d give you a little tip to help with your crepey skin. Get yourself a dermal roller and some hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C serum, use the roller once a fortnight on body areas or once a month on face with the serum and keep applying serum every day followed by a good moisturiser, preferably aromatherapy, and you should start to see a difference in a couple of months. this is the only treatment that helps with thinning crepey skin. You can have a stronger treatment in a clinic (collagen induction Therapy or Derma pen) but the roller at home will be cheaper:-) Hope this helps!

  8. I really, really wanted this thing to work and I believed it would but my cellulite only got worse from using the fasciablaster so I stopped using it. I also have crepe skin on my face now from the face blaster, which is quite devastating. A lot of women have reported heath issues and injuries from this tool. I say stay far away from this thing and stick to good old fashioned exercise and a healthy diet.

  9. Many ladies I know got crepey skin from blasting. There are hundreds of us in alternate support groups on Facebook. Some really serious health issues too. So many different problems…weight gain, sagging skin, nerve pain, and so much more!

  10. Thanks for creating an unpaid review of this thing. I was having the same trouble, finding anything unpaid or not from the inventor. I was thinking of switching from cupping to this but I think I’ll stick with my silicone cups.

    Have you tried them ever? I originally bought them because I thought I could detox or something with them and quickly discovered they are kind of like a reverse massage. I’ve seen major improvement on my cellulite and it helps my tight IT band. Worth trying 🙂
