Home Devices Deliver Professional Results
Skincare professionals have a wide array of tools and gadgets to assist in the application and delivery of skincare services and treatments from corrective procedures designed to reverse the signs of damaged skin to proactive treatments designed to rejuvenate the skin and prevent the signs of aging. These are sophisticated, expensive machines and pieces of equipment that require special training and certification to use – and are only available to professionals in the industry.
Now you can treat yourself at home with a range of smaller, home devices that deliver professional results. With an increasing number FDA approvals for at-home tools that deliver corrective healing and rejuvenating benefits, it’s easier than ever to maintain healthy skin at home, or between professional visits.
Here are three handy skincare gadgets that we like:
The Tanda Clear+ is for those with acne-prone skin or who suffer with active acne. This small hand-held device combines the same powerful bacteria-killing blue light used by dermatologists with sonic vibration and gentle warming to clear large breakout areas with unsurpassed speed and effectiveness without drying.
How it works: Acne breakouts occur when hormonal changes cause our sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum (oil). Acne bacteria feed on the sebum and multiply. Clogged pores trap the bacteria and before you know it you have a pimple.
Blue LED light has been clinically proven to kill acne-causing bacteria, clear existing blemishes and prevent future outbreaks. Tanda Clear+ uses a blend of powerful blue light with sonic vibration and gentle warming for clinically proven results.
- Clears existing breakouts
Helps prevent future outbreaks
Gentle enough for all skin types
- Calms irritated skin
Leaves no dryness or redness
According to Diane Heinz, Licensed Paramedical Estheticians, when you combine this device with products like benzoyl peroxide, Vitamin A and salicylic acid, you can boost the effects and keep acne from ruining your complexion.

Traditional methods of cleansing don’t get your skin as clean as you might think. Clarisonic™ sonic technology uses a micro-massage motion that works within skin’s natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities that traditional methods of cleaning leave behind – leaving skin smoother, softer, and cleaner. The Clairsonic method of skin cleansing:
- Cleanses 6 times better than with your hands in just 60 seconds
- Works with skin to gently massage away impurities trapped within the pores
- Prepares skin for maximum absorption of creams, serums and moisturizers
They offer a choice of brushes, depending on your skin type and skin condition:
Normal: Perfect for normal skin, for use on the décolleté area and body, as well as for shaving preparation.
Sensitive: Ideal for sensitive to normal skin types. (Comes standard with most of their cleansing brushes).
Delicate: Ultra-gentle brush, ideal for those with delicate or extra-sensitive skin.
Deep Pore Cleansing: Ideal for cleaning oily skin, enlarged pores and hard to reach areas of the face, such as around the nose. The deep pore cleansing brush head is gentle enough for daily use.
Acne Cleansing: Extra-plush bristle gradation helps to provide ultra-gentle cleansing for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Average Price: $100 – $199 (depending on model)
The first FDA-cleared, at-home laser, clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. Previously, comparable skin renewing laser treatments were only available at the doctor’s office. Now, you can use this same technology at home.
PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser also works below the skin’s surface where wrinkles form. Short micro-fine laser light pulses reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. This technique does not harm the outer layer of skin, resulting in faster healing and recovery. Over thirty consecutive days, the coverage builds as more of the skin is treated and the body’s natural healing process removes older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with new collagen and elastin- the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful skin. The results are natural, but dramatic.
Clinical studies have shown that, with just 3 or 4 minutes a day for 30 days, you can minimize eye wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging. Or use it once every three months to maintain the effects of a professional fractional laser treatment.
