Electrical skin devices for fine lines & wrinkles

Trying to maintain young, healthy and attractice looking skin is not easy. Many women have tried Botox, microdermabrasion, injectable fillers, skin lasers and the regular assortment of skin creams and serums.

A range of electrical skin devices using L.E.D.s to electrical currents, may help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, clear up acne and replenish skin.

There now exists a new mallet-like electircal skin device called a Baby Quasar that purports to help fade away fine lines, wrinkles and the other usual signs of aging. The light-emitting skin device is called a Baby Q and costs $400. Many users have been impressed with its strong and appealing packaging and the spped with which improved skin results are obtained.Some users claim to see improved skin texture as early as after only one use. Those who are very eager to maintain youthfull looking skin can upgrade to the full-size Quasar, a more powerful professional machine that costs a little under $2000. Although the struggle against aging skin has been around for a long timelong ago, it is only recently that technologies such as pulsing heat, L.E.D.s and electrical currents have become safe and easy enough for ordinary individuals to use by themselves at home.

Years after women first started copying professional skin treatments with home spa treatments , more devices have been transferred from the doctor’s clinic to the bathroom, where they now compete with skin creams, medicines and other prescribed remedies to fight the signs of aging skin. Although it is difficult to determine how many of these products exist, new ones seem to arrive very frequently:

  • the HairMax LaserComb
  • the DermaVie for microdermabrasion
  • the Crystalift to “resurface” the skin
Some of these electrical skin care devices cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars; but this doesn’t stop people for whom youth is of paramount importance. However, as more electrical skin devices are sold in skin care stores, many dermatologists question their effectivenes and even their safety.
One of the main problems with many of these at home skin care products is that they often get the consumer’s hopes up by promising more than they can deliver. Because many of the claims that these companies make are largely cosmetic and not medical, there is no strict control by the FDA which means they can get away with making bigger sounding claims of skin improvement without risking legal action. Customers, however, who know no better and are just eager to see an improvement in their skin condition are often all to eager to try any skin products without carrying out adequate research prior to purchase.
