In the 21st century the rapid advances in technology improve our day to day living at a dizzying rate. The role of technology in beauty however is slightly more complex. It must provide a rewarding experience that ultimately becomes a ritual, which over time will continue to produce visibly satisfying results. As well, one has to be inspired to use at-home technology products, therefore aesthetically – overall design and functionality play enormous roles.
Simplifying the often expensive treatments and experiences that were once reserved for luxurious day and med-spas, innovations in beauty technology have evolved from sensationalized infomercial gadgetry, to convenient and extremely effective devices.
From anti-aging to aromatherapy, we take an in-depth look at the very best of recent developments in beauty technology.
Dermflash – www.dermaflash.com
Rapidly becoming a social media favorite, Dermaflash is gaining a lot of well-deserved attention. Once the best-kept beauty secret of iconic screen legends including Marilyn Monroe, dermaplaning was and is still largely performed in med-spas. Dermaflash is a small, hand-held device that, like dermaplaning, removes the layers of dull, dry skin and vellus facial hair, or ‘peach-fuzz’ while stimulating circulation, resulting in a complexion that is smooth and absolutely radiant. The results are truly incredible and the entire process is easily completed in just minutes!

Therapeutic Light Therapy, which addresses visibly aging skin issues such as fine-lines and wrinkles, is yet another sought after and costly day-spa experience. Dr. Dennis Gross’ DRx Spectralite Eye Care Pro specifically addresses the delicate eye area. Through his patented technology, LED lights penetrate deep into the dermis stimulating the production of collagen, therefore improving skin density. This at-home device is easy to wear and hands-free. Looking younger has never been more convenient! Check out the website for more information.
