At Home Beauty Devices: Do They Work?

Anti Aging Spa Services NYC

Now that everything in our lives has gone the digital route, it should come as no surprise that advanced skin care and anti-aging tools once relegated to in-office or professional spa services are becoming increasingly mobile. Today, there is a plethora of many different at home beauty devices available which claim to leave your skin looking and feeling as if you just participated in a professional beauty treatment in a spa or dermatologist’s office. However, the real question here is do these new technologies actually work or is it best to stick to the most professional spa services NYC has to offer for more complex treatments and advanced anti aging services? Check out three of these at home beauty devices below to see if the results they offer are at all comparable to those you would get from the dermatologist or professional spa esthetician.

The Clarisonic

Retailing in at $199, the Clarisonic is a tool that oscillates 300 times per second so that your face gets washed and exfoliated like never before. This gadget works to get rid of all impurities like dead skin, pore clogging oil and makeup and is meant to work much more efficiently than a manual brush or your bare hand or towel which can house bacteria. Exfoliating on a regular basis enables serums and creams to get through surface of your skin more easily so that your face looks flawless. The Clarisonic has been on the market for several years and its market share continues to increase. According to the self-proclaimed “beauty experts” at popular Allure Magazine, it does wonders for skin. With its rapid and repetitive movements, the skin is left purified. This helps to eliminate skin issues such as ingrown hairs, clogged pores and acne.

LightStim LED Light Therapy

The main focus of an LED light is to diminish the look of wrinkles. This gadget achieves this result by increasing the production of collagen in the face. The LightStim LED treatment, which comes in at roughly $249, uses both amber and red light to reduce the look of fine lines found on your face. These lights are low-intensity, but they still firm up your skin over time. While the LightStim isn’t completely flaw-proof, it is very promising. The red light found in this gadget gets deep down into the dermis where it works to stimulate cells that produce elastin and collagen. The jury is still out for LED light therapy treatments for at home use and its effectiveness, especially for those with darker complexions.


Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light

For those looking to reduce acne breakouts, the Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light is a gadget designed for this very reason. It is a blue light handheld device that works to eliminate acne by getting rid of the bacteria found deep within your pores. Acne-causing bacteria are extremely sensitive to this blue light according to the company that manufactures Tria devices. While this is what the Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light advertises, experts explain that this isn’t always the case. The Tria Skin Perfecting Blue light is a very mild treatment; which means that in order for you to see any noticeable results you would have to use this product continuously for a long period of time. In essence, this at home device may not be worth its hefty price tag of $299+.
