I'm writing some quick blogs, live from the Paris conf (IMCAS), the "gold standard" of medical aesthetic conferences where we review the latest advancements and technologies in our industry. Based on what I've learned so far at the conference, I'm going to explain what home devices are worth their salt.
Home use devices are becoming more and more prevalent. But are they worth the cost? Will you get the results the ads promise? Here’s the bottom line in my opinion:
Hair removal home devices
Not much new. Unless you have just a very small area, save your money. Not great still for darker skin types
Home devices for wrinkles
These are slowly improving, and will be more effective in the future. Wait a year or two to get the results you’re seeking.
Home devices for acne
Some very interesting red/blue light mask devices for NON cystic inflammatory acne. These are helpful and will be available soon.
Age prevention home devices
To be honest, you’re better off just using your sunscreen with high zinc every morning (like this one by Elta MD). It’ll be more effective than these devices and less time consuming.
