These Hi-Tech Skincare Devices Are the Next Best Thing to a Trip to the Salon
Having a professional skincare treatment is a true luxury and is one of the best ways to maintain your skin health. But if you can't get to the salon this month, there are plenty of hi-tech beauty gadgets ready to come to your aid.
There have been so many new launches in this space over the past few years that we’re now spoiled for choice when it comes to devices that can help lift, firm, tone, and brighten skin. Think of these tools as your at-home facialist or a nice complement to professional treatments.
They're almost as good as a trip to the salon (and you don't have to get out of your slippers).
Dr Dennis Spectralite Faceware Pro
Featuring both red and blue light technology, this futuristic-looking LED light device can help stimulate collagen production and smooth wrinkles while brightening, as well as deal with the bacteria that can lead to breakouts. It also works a treat on soothing redness and inflammation. An essential gadget if you’re addicted to Omnilux sessions.
Nurse Jamie Uplift Massage Beauty Roller
There’s not a celeb out there who doesn’t have this purple wand in their kit – and for good reason. The unique shape and design of this beauty roller helps massage and tone skin while stimulating blood flow. It also helps improve the absorption of your serums, oils and moisturisers. The end result? Lifted and glowing skin.
NuFACE Trinity® Complete Facial Toning Kit
The NuFACE Trinity® is pretty much a toning session for your face. The silver spheres feature micro-current technology that stimulates deep skin tissue, which then helps lift, tighten and define your facial contours. Swap out the attachment for the Effective Lip and Eye prongs to firm and tone the brow, lip and eye areas, and finish off with the Wrinkle Reducer attachment for a hit of anti-ageing red light therapy. Pricey, but you’ve basically got three targeted skin treatments in one device.
Dr. Pen Ultima X5 Derma Pen
This one is for the micro-needling fans out there. If you’re missing the satisfying sting of the professional treatment and the brightening and plumping results that follow a few days later, this pen (which can be used once a month) could be the solution you’re after.
Talika Pigment Control
Used for just one minute twice a day, the handy wand-like device can help target dark spots and pigmentation caused by ageing and sun exposure on your face, hands and décolletage. How? That would be thanks to the brightening properties of gentle green light technology.
Foreo UFO 2
This will be the quickest, most effective at-home facial you could do. Combining the benefits of a 30-minute sheet masking session with LED light therapy, warm and cool therapy, and transdermal sonic pulsations, the short-and-sweet 90-second routine will leave your skin looking fresh and bright.
Revlon Face Defuzzer
Not as hi-tech as the rest, but a must if you’re missing your regular dermaplaning sessions. This affordable duo of razors can help keep your skin smooth and peach fuzz-free until you can see your therapist again – just make sure you prep your skin properly and use small, gentle strokes.
