5 anti-ageing gadgets

Looking for the fountain of youth? Try these gadgets instead…

Anti-ageing is big business and men and women all over the world spend thousands every year in the quest to stay young and fight the signs of ageing. Nowadays, creams and serums don’t seem to quite cut it when it comes to finding ways of improving the skin. Anti-ageing gadgets have started to make their way into the market, bringing with them a more high-tech way of looking young, preventing fine lines and wrinkles, or even just improving the overall quality of the skin. Here are five of the most popular anti-ageing gadgets on the market now:

Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion

The Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion is a palm-sized device that can be taken almost anywhere and works to encourage an anti-ageing serum to penetrate deeper into the skin. The serum is first applied to the eye contours and then the Clarisonic glides across the contours, tapping the skin with 125 sonic vibrations a second. It only needs to be used for 30 seconds, twice a day, and results are promised within four to eight weeks.


Tria Age-Defying Laser

Modelled after the fractionated lasers that doctors use to treat skin problems and conditions, the Age-Defying Laser uses a diode laser over the skin to boost collagen and elastin. Not only does this product claim to have anti-ageing results, it also reduces spots and improves the general look of the skin, so users are able to use it even before they have visible signs of ageing, simply to make their overall skin condition improve.


New Spa Microneedle Skin Care System

This product may seem a little extreme, with hundreds of tiny needles piercing the skin over and over again. This does not hurt as the needles are tiny, and piercing the skin encourages collagen production, which repairs the skin and helps to make it look younger. After a few weeks using the Microneedle Skin Care System, users can expect improved elasticity and plumpness, as well as wrinkle and scar reduction. This device does not need to be plugged in, meaning that it is truly portable and easy to use, wherever the user is.


CACI Microlift

One of the most popular anti-ageing gadgets on the market, the CACI system is already used in over 6000 spas and salons across the UK, and has a huge number of devotees. The system uses microcurrents which are used to tone the muscles and the skin, to help reduce creases and lines over a period of weeks. CACI Microlift is handheld and battery operated, making it easy to carry around and use as well.


NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device

The system works by producing microcurrents which grip and release the facial muscles to tone the skin and the muscles underneath. Skin becomes thicker and smoother, whilst the toning of the muscles helps to stop crinkling and creasing. Users report smoother skin and a plumper face thanks to the toned muscles underneath.
