What if you could get brighter, smoother, clearer skin with the push of a button? Well—thanks to the newest wave of at-home anti-aging devices—you kind of can. From lasers to electrical currents, these beauty devices use doctor’s-office technology to bring you noticeable results—no trip to the dermatologist required. Below, three amazing, at-home anti-aging devices, and which one is right for you:
What it does: Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, specifically around the eyes and mouth.
Who it’s for: Anyone who wants to target those nagging “trouble” areas, i.e. annoying fine lines around lips and eyes.
How it works: The laser sends targeted beams of light below the skin’s surface, triggering the production of collagen and elastin to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The iluminage uses the same technology professional lasers, but at energy levels that can’t damage the skin. In short, it delivers some serious results.
What to expect: While the Skin Smoothing Laser is not painful to use, it can be a little uncomfortable at first. Feeling a bit of warmth on your skin is completely normal, and your complexion may appear red for about an hour after treatment. However, you can look forward to seeing results within two weeks.
Why we love it: First and foremost, we love the results we get from this easy-to-use device. It truly lives up to the hype, diminishing enough fine lines and wrinkles to make us look years younger. We saw results pretty quickly after starting treatments, too—within a few weeks, our skin looked even and luminous, and after a few months, even the deep wrinkles around our eyes looked softer. What’s more, the device is simple to use, easy to hold, and we’re suckers for the artistic, sculpture-esque design.
What it does: Lifts, tones and smoothes skin with low-level electrical currents. If anti-aging is your primary concern, this device is for you.
Who it’s for: NuFACE is suitable for all skin types and ages, and can be used all over the face. It even comes with special attachments for eyes and lips.
How it works: The device sends microcurrents of electricity deep into the skin, setting off a series of cellular changes, including the production and storage of collagen and elastin. The result is an improved, lifted appearance, better skin tone and balance, and diminished pores.
What to expect: Even though NuFACE sends electricity into the skin, it’s not painful. In fact, it feels a little bit like a cold, tingly massage. The device offers an immediate tightening effect after the first use, and—with continued use—leaves skin lifted and firmed.
Why we love it: Two words: instant gratification. If we want to look better in five minutes flat, NuFace is our go-to. As soon as we finish just one treatment, our skin looks noticeably tighter. And since microcurrent treatments don’t require any down time, the device has become a staple in our party-prep routines. We can put makeup on afterwards, and go about our routines as usual. With continued, daily use, the NuFACE offers long term results, too. In just sixty days, we saw a significant improvement in facial contour, skin tone and wrinkle reduction.
What it does: The device uses nano-current technology to treat numerous skin conditions, ranging from acne to anti-aging.
Who it’s for: ZIIP is suitable for all skin types, even highly reactive, sensitive skin. It’s great for those with multiple skincare concerns, i.e, acne and aging.
How it works: ZIIP sends nano-sized electrical currents deep in the cellular level of your skin to promote the production of collagen and elastin, plumping and smoothing from the inside out. Nano currents also zap bacteria that’s causing acne, boost radiance, and enhance lymphatic drainage. You can look forward to seeing brighter, clearer skin after just four to five sessions with your ZIIP.
What to expect: There is no pain or recovery time with ZIIP, and the treatment is much less sensory than you might expect. The metal discs may feel warm on your skin, but in a pleasant way. Much like the NuFACE, you will see both immediate and cumulative effects.
Why we love it: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—having a ZIIP is like having your own personal facialist, right at your fingertips. We love the device’s versatility, and how it addresses more concerns than just aging. In fact, the ZIIP offers not one, but four electrical facials—anti-aging, sensitivity, acne, or treating the delicate eye area. It’s basically all the benefits of clinical treatments, without the clinic.
