With new skin care devices trending all the time, it’s hard to scope out the useful products from the viral fads. Learning what’s worth the purchase is essential so you don’t waste your time, and most importantly your money. You don’t always have to splurge on skin care, but sometimes there are certain tools that may be actually worth the pricey price tag. Take a look at four of the best luxury skin care tools that live up to the hype and are worth the investment.

Dermashine Pro Wireless 7 Color LED Face Mask

Retail Price: $149.99

LED light therapy is a skin care trick often used to treat acne. What started out as a treatment you could only get at the dermatologist office is now available to use in the comfort of your own home.  According to dermatologist Dr. Simon Ourian not only can light therapy help those with acne, it also provides other anti-aging benefits.

“Light therapy helps boost the appearance of collagen and leaves the skin looking much brighter,” she said. “It has also been found to repair cell damage, kill bacteria, improve facial texture, reduce fine lines, and more.”

Dermashine Pro Wireless light therapy masks gives you 7 different light colors all designed to treat specific skin problems. This mask promises to boost collagen, clear and tighten your skin, reduce lines and wrinkles, and improve skin color. Your skin will absorb the light energy and then convert it into intracellular energy to treat your skin condition. Dermashine suggests using this LED light therapy mask for 15 to 30 minutes per day.

Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar

Retail Price: $195.00

This next tool takes luxury skin care to the next level. Jillian Dempsey’s sculpting device is a vibrating bar made from 24-karat-gold, that works to make your skin feel and appear toned, lifted, contoured and revived. The vibrations from the gold T-bar mimic the effects of a massage and help relax your facial muscles and release tension. This bar also allows other skin care creams to penetrate deeper into the skin. The gold sculpting bar was created by makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, who recommends using this product on your “tech lines” to reduce visibility.  These are the lines on your that form from looking down at your phone. On top of reducing fine lines, this tool can reduce puffiness and leave your skin looking refreshed.

NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device

Retail Price: $339.00

The NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device is worth the purchase for anyone looking to tone and get that face lift look without having to going under the knife. With many celebrity faces praising the tool, it has only been steadily growing in popularity. According to NuFACE, this toning device will give you professional treatments at home. This device uses microcurrent technology to improve facial contour, tone, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. NuFACE Trinity does this by stimulating large surface areas of your face and neck with gentle microcurrents. The microcurrents tone and tighten the muscles in your face, giving them a much needed workout.

The brand suggests using this device for five minutes, once a day. Most clients tend to see results after just one use. One sessions results will typically last for one to three days, but regular use will give you optimal results.

One user said, “I have so many “beauty devices” and often they end up sitting in a drawer somewhere, but this one I actually use! I can actually see results with this and it’s so easy and relaxing to use.”

ORA Electric Microneedle Roller Derma Pen System

Retail Price: $85.00

Microneedling is a skin care treatment used for many different things. This treatment can improve many things like acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, brown spots, loose skin, stretch marks and pigment issues. ORA’s mirconeedle pen allows you to get more precise with your microneedling. It offers five speeds and an adjustable needle head, so you can pick the needle depth that is right for you. The pen’s vibrations will give you faster and more precise needle strokes and makes it easier for the needles to deeply penetrate.

Remember, don’t use this tool if you have any active infections or lesions.

“If you have active acne, or tender acne cysts, do not microneedle over these areas,” says dermatologist Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse. “It will only irritate the area, make them more inflamed and potentially spread bacteria. Wait until your skin is more clear before attempting the procedure.”

When using this tool, hold the skin area to be treated taut with your free hand, and light move the pen in slow circular motion from left to right. Make sure you keep the needles in constant contact with your skin without lifting the roller. After treating your area of choice with circular motions, do a second treatment on the same spot with vertical motions from top to bottom. Finally, do a third treatment on the same area again, using diagonal strokes this time. Always use mild constant pressure. ORA includes two needles tips that feature 12 needles each.
