Wouldn’t it be nice if you could reverse some of your biggest beauty woes without booking an expensive, not to mention invasive, in-office treatment? With technology advancements in light therapy, smart devices and multi-functional devices, now you can. Instead of visiting your dermatologist for a wrinkle-zapping, skin-clearing, complexion-plumping treatment, you can turn to trusted at-home skin care devices that get the job done with little to no recovery time. Up ahead, we break down the three most popular types of at-home treatments that can help you achieve your most flawless complexion yet, plus share splurge-worthy beauty devices to try.

Smart Devices

It’s hard to imagine a world without smart devices—especially now that so many are geared towards achieving our skin care goals. While many beauty devices could be considered “smart,” these beauty devices are categorized in this way because they can connect to the internet, Bluetooth and even specially designed mobile apps. Here are some smart beauty devices we are loving right now.

1. FOREO UFO Smart Mask Treatment

Ideal for: Mature skin types with fine lines and wrinkles, blemished skin prone to oiliness and dry skin.

Up the ante on your masking regimen with the FOREO UFO Smart Mask Treatment. Made to work in tandem with the brand’s activated sheet masks, this treatment utilizes smart technology to get the most out of your mask time. Made with hyper-infusion technology, the device has both hot and cool settings for maximum skin benefits. “The heat portion helps [the] product penetrate the skin more efficiently [while] the cold setting helps to refresh the skin and reduce puffiness,”says Dr. Debra Jaliman, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, noting that cooling down the skin can also temporarily tighten the complexion and reduce pore size.

Why we love it: It’s like the ultimate at-home facial. Not only is it cool technology-wise, but it helps get more bang for your buck in terms of masking benefits.

2. Elvie Kegel Exercise Trainer

Ideal for: Anyone looking to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles.

Strong is beautiful and the Elvie Kegel Exercise Trainer helps you achieve that inner beauty by providing the pelvic floor with strength training exercises to tighten up muscles. “Super simple and easy to use and noticeable improvements,” writes one Dermstore customer. With each exercise, the pelvic floor muscles grow stronger, helping to promote better bladder control and get the body in tip-top shape for pregnancy and postpartum recovery.

Why we love it: It’s a different take on inner beauty and through strengthening our inside muscles, we can not only help our body physically but also feel more confident on the outside, too. Focusing on the exercises also helps train our focus in a world where short attention spans thrive.

3. FOREO LUNA fofo

Ideal for: All skin types looking for a good clean rinse at the end (or beginning!) of the day.

Get smart about your cleansing regimen with the FOREO LUNA fofo. The vibrating silicone cleansing brush gently cleanses the skin of the day’s grime and analyzes the complexion at the same time, so you not only get a squeaky-clean feeling, but also have insight into what is going on across your complexion. Not to mention: Its buzzing sensation boasts major skin care benefits. “This type of technique helps bring oxygen to [the skin],” says Dr. Jaliman. It also has anti-aging benefits since “collagen production increases as blood flow increases,” she notes.

Why we love it: It’s like a pocket-sized smart facialist. When connected to the app, the cleansing brush tells you your true skin age and type, measures for hydration and gives you real-time data. With the added information, you can create a unique cleanse just for your complexion.

Light Therapy Devices

Light therapy is taking the beauty world by storm and for good reason. With these LED (light emitting diode) beauty devices, gone are the days when you’d have to book an expensive in-office treatment. Now, you can experience the magic in the comfort of your own home. Peep our favorite light therapy devices, below.

4. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare SpectraLite™ FaceWare Pro

Ideal for: Mature skin types looking to reverse the look of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage and loss of firmness and acne-prone skin types hoping to kick redness to the curb.

Give yourself a targeted, product-free facial with the SpectraLite FaceWare Pro. The unique all-over light therapy face mask utilizes both red and blue light therapy to stimulate collagen production and reduce breakouts. “Red light therapy is used for its anti-aging properties because it’s collagen-boosting,” notes Dr. Jaliman. “The blue light therapy kills acne-causing bacteria,” she adds, noting that both can actually combat acne, but the blue light gets the job done better.

Why we love it: The hands-free device targets the entire facial complexion to smooth over wrinkles, reduce blemishes, even the skin’s texture and help us achieve in-office–worthy results at home.

5. SKIN INC Supplement Bar Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light

Ideal for: Those hoping to rid their skin of hyperpigmentation, breakouts or premature signs of aging.

We love a multipurpose product and this three-in-one device takes the cake. Made with blue, red and yellow light therapy to target premature signs of aging (red), banish blemish-causing bacteria (blue) and fade away hyperpigmentation (yellow), you can really do it all with this device—and see the results.

Why we love it: Like a catch-all for many common skin care woes, this device is the perfect introduction to light therapy, as its range of colors makes for a more universal treatment.

6. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare SpectraLite EyeCare Pro

Ideal for: Mature skin types looking to prevent and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Be your own skin care superhero with the SpectraLite EyeCare Pro. Made with 72 LEDs, the light therapy eye device is proven to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as stimulate collagen production—all from the comfort of your own home.

Why we love it: We love the anti-aging device for both its visible results and convenience factor. Not only is it hands-free, but it also has a built-in timer and shuts off after three minutes of use. Not to mention: The orange glow from the LEDs provide a relaxation effect.

7. LightStim LightStim for Wrinkles

Ideal for: Mature skin types looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and clarify the complexion.

Thanks to advancements in at-home light therapy, you don’t need an invasive treatment to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Case in point? The LightStim for Wrinkles. Formulated with the latest LED light and multi-wave technology, this anti-aging device works to clarify your complexion while working to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through stimulation.

Why we love it: It’s portable—i.e., it works from anywhere to help promote younger-looking skin—and it only adds a few extra minutes to your skin care routine.

Multi-Functional Devices

Multi-functional beauty devices are tools that combine two or more functions to achieve a certain result—sort of like a multipurpose skin care product. Here are the multi-functional devices we can’t get enough of right now.

8. Nurse Jamie Triangle Facial Beauty Tool

Ideal for: Mature skin types looking to target fine lines—including crow’s feet and lip lines—wrinkles, dull skin and loss of firmness.

Thanks to its lymphatic drainage benefits, the Triangle Facial Beauty Tool is everywhere right now. It combines the movement of massage with smart technology to penetrate the skin and target pesky signs of aging like crow’s feet, lip lines and fine lines on the complexion. But, that’s not the only plus to incorporating a multi-functional device like this one into your regimen. Because of its massaging motion, this small but mighty beauty tool can actually improve the absorption of your favorite skin care products.

Why we love it: This device is like a smart gua sha (healing technique used in traditional East Asian medicine) device and combines the benefits of specially shaped tools and sonic facial massage for maximum results.

9. Jade Roller Beauty Tiger's Eye by JRB

Ideal for: Mature skin types or those that experience puffiness, blemishes or dull-looking complexions.

Stone rollers like the Tiger’s Eye by Jade Roller Beauty are considered a must-have tool for all skin care arsenals because of the incredible massage benefits they bring to the complexion. “Facial massages drain away tension and fluid in your face,” explains Dr. Jaliman. On top of that, the massaging tool can also improve the skin’s circulation, which can “help anti-age, as collagen production increases with improved blood flow,” she adds.

Why we love it: Massaging our face with this stone roller is our favorite way to wind down and get ready for bed—aka, the skin’s rejuvenation period. Not only is it ultra-relaxing, but it also helps add some extra oomph (by way of a natural-looking glow) to the skin.
