DIY beauty treatments

Recent technological advances mean that we are seeing more and more at-home high-tech beauty devices, able to deliver professional results that were previously only available in-clinic. Here we take a look at the best gadgets on the market:

Skin exfoliation:

Microdermabrasion has long been a popular in-clinic treatment, which gently exfoliates the top layer of skin to produce a glowing complexion. Younger, healthier skin is revealed and collagen and elastin production is stimulated as the body produces new skin. It can also be used to treat a number of common skin concerns, including acne, acne scarring, poor skin tone, areas of pigmentation and the first signs of skin ageing.

This gadget is tipped with aluminium oxide discs which gently exfoliate the dead skin cells, combined with a vacuum that sucks up the debris to leave instantly clearer, brighter and softer skin.

Acne zapping:

There are numerous light therapy devices now available that emit blue LED light to treat acne. They have been used in-clinic for many years, as the blue light is clinically-proven to kill acne-causing bacteria. The devices typically also emit red light that is great for calming inflammation so they can be used both for a long-term treatment for acne and for dealing with an unexpected breakout.

The TANDA Clear Plus Professional Acne Clearing Solution Device combines blue light technology with gentle warming and sonic vibration to deliver calm and clear skin as quickly as possible.

Teeth brightening:

Teeth whitening treatments are becoming increasingly popular in the UK as we seek to emulate the pearly-white smile of our favourite celebrities. Now, with home tooth whitening kits delivering safe and predictable results, a trip to the dentist is no longer required.

The Pearl Brilliant White Ionic Teeth Whitening System is the first at-home kit to be cleared by the FDA in the US in ten years and claims that it can make your teeth ten shades whiter in just five days.

Hair removing:

Women typically spend many thousands of pounds in beauty salons in the pursuit of hair-free limbs, but now at-home hair removal devices can deliver the same quality results a professional can achieve, but in the comfort of your own home.

The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X utilises the same core diode technology that’s used by laser hair removal machines in clinics. It disables hair follicles by targeting pigment and users report a 70% reduction after four treatments with full results after 12 weeks or your money back.

Wrinkle busting:

The latest innovation in at-home beauty gadgets is incorporating smartphone technology to tackle many of the visible signs of facial ageing.

Play Skin is a revolutionary DIY beauty device that combines a rejuvenating facial mask, which contains hyaluronic acid and potent antioxidant Coenzyme Q10, with the low-intensity micro-currents produced by your smartphone. These micro-currents improve skin elasticity and tone and supercharge the anti-ageing benefits of the hydrogel face mask.
