The Anti-Aging Beauty Tools that Work

Aging is a topic that seems to be on everyone’s mind these days, and I can definitely relate. It’s a natural part of life that tends to occupy our thoughts more as we get older. My TikTok ‘For You Page’ is flooded with people sharing their experiences with everything from fillers to face lifts. While I firmly believe that you should do whatever makes you happy, I understand that invasive therapies can be intimidating or simply not within everyone’s budget.

Fortunately, in 2024, there are plenty of technologies that allow you to achieve salon-like treatments in the comfort of your own home. Whether it’s red light therapy devices or face yoga, there’s a wide range of devices and tools available, each designed to work in its own unique way. It ultimately comes down to finding the right one for you and your needs. Luckily, I narrowed down all the must-have anti-aging beauty tools that are worth the investment.

The Anti-Aging Beauty Tools that Work

Red Light Masks

Amongst all of the anti-aging beauty tools, 2024 is certainly the year of the red light therapy masks. If you don’t have your hands on one yet, you likely have seen videos of girls at home with this strange, glowing mask. So…does it actually work?

These devices emit low-level red light wavelengths that can penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin texture. It’s also been stated that this treatment also works for hair loss and alopecia. However, it’s important to note that you need to be consistent with treatment to see proper results (which could take a few months).

Microcurrent Therapy

If you have done a little bit of research into anti-aging beauty tools, chances are you have come across devices like the NuFace. These devices use low-voltage electrical currents to stimulate facial muscles. It’s said that using this type of therapy improves muscle tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Personally, I am obsessed with the NuFace! If I have an important event on the books, I will often incorporate enough time to use this tool before applying my makeup because it visibly makes my features look more snatched. Just be sure to use it in tandem with the special gel so you don’t shock yourself!

Dermarollers

Have you heard of dermarolling? These little tools have tiny needles that create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone. This even helps to aid in the absorption of skincare products. When first starting out with the dermaroller, I recommend you to start with treatment just once per week. If your skin tolerates the dermaroller, you can increase to two times a week but I wouldn’t go over this threshold. Too much of this treatment could cause damage to your skin.

Gua Sha

Perhaps the most cost-effective amongst all of these anti-aging beauty tools is the gua sha. This is a traditional Chinese healing method that uses an ergonomic hand tool to gently scrape your skin. This action stimulates microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow and drains the lymph nodes.

To use the gua sha technique effectively, first, apply a few drops of your favorite facial oil or serum to provide a smooth surface for the tool to glide on. Begin at the base of your neck, gently scraping upwards towards the jawline, then move to the cheekbones, eyes, and forehead, using light to medium pressure. Consistent daily use of gua sha can lead to improved skin texture and a potentially firmer overall facial structure.

 

At-Home Laser Therapy

Laser therapy was typically always reserved for in-person clinician treatment. However, you can bring  low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy to the comfort of your own home. This is for the more serious skin enthusiasts who don’t mind spending a pretty penny on one of these anti-aging beauty tools. This treatment is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as stimulate collagen production for more youthful skin. Although it sounds like the aforementioned red light therapy masks, this offers stronger and significantly more targeted treatment.

There aren’t too many at-home laser therapy options out there yet, so you can always sit tight and wait for other devices to enter the market.
