Do you have a beauty gadget lover on your gift list this year? I’m a huge fan of doing things at home rather than paying salon or esthetician prices… over and over. You invest in the tool once and have it to use repeatedly. These aren’t as powerful as the ones your dermatologist or medispa uses, but over time can get similar results.
I bought my first epilator 15 years ago. It finally gave up the ghost so I upgraded to this new and improved version last year. Next, I got a Clarisonic which I love but my skin is even more fragile these days so I just ordered the Foreo to try.
There seems to be a gadget for everything. Here’s some popular ones-
1- Braun Silk Epil 9 Womens Epilator. It comes with several attachments, including one for the face. I love this. It stings a bit but I only need to use it once every 3 weeks and the hair grows back in finer and thinner. I haven’t tried the face one yet – I’ll keep you posted. For now, I’m just using it on my underarms and legs.
2- SpectraLite Faceware Pro. Uses red and blue LED light therapy to smooth the skin, kill bacteria and build collagen. Interesting idea because so many spas are using light therapy as part of their facials.
4-Hairmax Laser Band 82 FDA approved device which uses medical grade lasers to stimulate hair growth. I am seriously intrigued…
5- iRestore Laser Hair Regrowth System Clinically tested and FDA-cleared hair loss treatment and medical device for treating alopecia, receding hairline, balding & thinning hair to stimulate hair regrowth for men and women. The reviews on this are amazing.
6- iluminage TOUCH Permanent Hair Reduction System. Permanent hair removal at home.
1- Nuface Trinity Face Toning System. FDA-cleared handheld device for facial stimulation with the same microcurrent technology used in top spas, medical offices.
2- BeautyBio GloPRO Microneedling Tool. Red LED light therapy and VibroTactile Stimulation work synergistically to enhance regenerative skin benefits. I’m really happy with my manual derma roller but this has pretty good reviews.
3- Tria SmoothBeauty Laser. FDA-cleared, clinically proven laser treatment uses Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Technology to stimulate collagen production in the same way that professional, in-office laser treatments do, but at a fraction of the cost.
4- LightStim LED Light Therapy. FDA cleared red light device designed to help reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, restore your skin’s youthful appearance and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. My wrinkles are deeper than “fine” but I am curious.
5- PMD Microderm Pro Device. Microdermabrasion device uses patented spinning disc technology with calibrated vacuum suction to brighten, smooth and even skin tone and texture. This one definitely intrigues me.
I love my epilator and am seriously interested in these hair growth devices – too little hair in one place and too much in others 🙂 The joys of menopause keep on giving.
Have you tried any at home beauty machines? Please share your experience.
