The High-Tech Beauty Devices For An Indulgent Beauty Routine

Because why use your hands when we have all these high tech beauty devices?

Let’s face it, the reason why we go for facials is either for the relaxation, extraction or the high-tech gadgets they use. Well, you’re in luck if it’s the third reason, cause these high-tech beauty devices can help you achieve professional results, right in the comfort of your own home.

DRx SpectraLite™ FaceWare Pro, $709, Dr Dennis Gross
Using a combination of red and blue LED lights, this hands-free beauty mask helps improve the appearance of wrinkles and acne. Red LED penetrates skin to improve collagen synthesis, which in turn helps skin appear lifted with fewer wrinkles. Blue LED, on the other hand, destroy the pimple-causing P.acnes bacteria, and also reduces redness. Corrale, price unavailable, Dyson
Seven years in the making, the Dyson Corrale might seem like any other hair straightener, but its flexible plates prove otherwise. Wrapping firmly around a section of hair, it distributes even tension and heat so fewer passes are required to straighten or curl hair – depending on what you’re trying to achieve. OptimaLift A+ Intelligent Eye Revitaliser Tri-Action Massager, $86, est lab
You need to be quick if you want to nab the OptimaLift A+ Intelligent Eye Revitaliser Tri-Action Massager. This device, which is specifically designed for the eye area, combines three different functions – red LED to stimulate collagen, heat between 37°C to 45°C to relieve signs of fatigue, as well as sonic vibrations to ease puffiness and improve circulation. Total Lift Up Care, $699, LG Pra.L
The Total Lift Up Care has two modes – Lifting and Tightening. High-Frequency thermal therapy and red LED helps to improve collagen synthesis for firmer skin. Microcurrent then helps to lift skin, to improve facial contours. Fine Fairness Light Mask, $169.80, Neutrogena
The Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask uses both red LED and infrared to boost collagen and elastin production, as well as brighten the skin tone. Skin appears plumper, with fewer pigmentation and dullness with frequent use. Clear, $360, ReFa
The ReFa Clear is not just your average cleansing device. It utilises 3D Sonic Ion Technology to dislodge impurities from skin and aid negatively charged ions like sebum and dead skin cells out of the pores. The brush made by artisans from the Kumano prefecture in Japan, which are best known for their brushes, is artfully curved to reach into tight corners like the sides of the nose. Bear Smart Microcurrent Facial Toning Device, $436, FOREO
Using the FOREO Bear is like giving your face a workout. The uperior microcurrent & T-Sonic pulsations trains your facial muscles just like working out regular muscles does. Microcurrents which passes through skin cells break them down, and then grow back stronger, the same way your muscles do after lifting weights. Over time, skin is firmer and more lifted.
