Technological advances in skincare have led to the rise of skincare devices and tools within the skincare market and their popularity grows annually. Whether you are a know-it-all tech junkie or are a newbie feeling overwhelmed by all the different gadgets and choices, here is a simple way to navigate through choosing which skincare device is right for you! FOREO mini: This is the perfect starter device and is suitable for all skin types. If you are trying to get a teen to take their skincare more seriously, this is a great way to get them interested in washing their face. This device is not only ideal for teens but anyone looking to get a deeper cleanse, with 8,000 pulsations per minute. There is little maintenance with this transdermal device, as the cleansing surface is silicon and cannot harbor bacteria. There are no brush heads to replace and the tool is completely waterproof. All FOREO tools hold a charge for what seems like forever! It only needs to be charged about every six months. The Mini’s compact size also makes it perfect for travel. PMD: The personal microderm is for anyone who is looking to change and refine the texture/tone of their skin. Like in-office microdermabrasion, this device combines the exfoliation of aluminum oxide crystals with the plumping effect of the wand’s suction. The PMD is ideal for anyone struggling with the size of their pores, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles around the mouth, forehead or between the brow. FOREO Luna: If you are looking to streamline your routine and beauty tools, this device offers both the benefits of a deep transdermal cleanse and the anti-aging benefits of low frequency. During your normal cleansing routine, use the deep cleaning pulse point side. After your cleanse, apply your favorite serum, essence or moisturizer, flip over the device and use the anti-aging mode to help your treatment products penetrate deeply. Just like the mini, the Luna rarely needs to be charged, is anti-microbial, has no brush heads to replace and is waterproof. NuFace Trinity: This is an FDA-cleared microcurrent tool, which helps to train the contours of the face. Helping to give a more youthful appearance by improving the apples of the cheeks and redefining the jaw line, while also reducing the appearance of fine lines. The firming effect of this tool is often associated with the term “Five minute face lift.” This skincare device has a red-light therapy attachment that can be used to stimulate collagen and elastin. The NuFace is for anyone looking to treat the most severe effects of aging without fillers, botox or plastic surgery. All of these skincare devices can be found at askderm.com!
