2020 saw us taking our skincare and grooming routines onto our own hands with DIY haircuts, hair dyes, eyebrow tinting, lash lifting and chemical peels. As the future remains uncertain and trips to parlors, salons and to the dermatologist are still limited, more and more people have been relying on beauty tools to replicate the results they get from professionals at home. According to beauty editors and their dermatologist consultants, here are the best beauty devices that are worth splurging on.
ReFa S Carat Ray
According to Healthline, facial rolling improves blood circulation and decreases puffiness. This high-tech roller uses microcurrent technology to tighten and contour skin. It also tackles puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles and improves skin's firmness and elasticity.
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device
Another device that has been trending on social media thanks to celebrities like Riverdale actress Madeline Petsch is NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device. Just like the ReFa S Carat Ray, it also uses microcurrent technology to eliminate lines and wrinkles and to tighten skin. As Harper's Bazaar writes, this is almost as close to getting a facelift at home.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro
If you caught The Prom on Netflix, you may remember the great Meryl Streep and late-night talk show host James Corden donning futuristic facial masks. LED light therapy is a dermatologist favorite and is featured in Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro. This mask uses red light to penetrate the skin's dermis to stimulate collagen while blue light kills bacteria and targets acne, lines, inflammation, and discoloration. You can also use both lights to enjoy all benefits and it only takes the mask three minutes to do its job.

Foreo LUNA 3 For Sensitive Skin
This silicone cleansing device thoroughly washes the skin with its tiny bristles that were made to deep clean every pore on your face. Unlike sponges, the silicone material prevents bacteria from breeding on the brush. Vogue also recommends the Foreo Luna Mini 3.
Infinity Hair Removal Device
For those who've missed their laser hair removal appointments thanks to Covid-19, it might be wise to get this handheld device that uses the same light therapy used in clinics. While most IPL devices don't work on blonde or red hair and darker skin tones, this one works with all skin tones and hair colors.
Dermaflash Luxe Dermaplaning Exfoliation & Peach Fuzz Removal Device
Dermaplaning is a procedure that removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. It allows all your skincare products, especially serums and creams, to penetrate the skin better and work their magic at a deeper level. While you can use a facial razor to do this, you will yield better results with this high-tech device which comes with a PreFlash Cleanser and PostFlash Moisturizer.
Opte Precision System
E! News reports that Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton are fans of the Opte Precision System that digitally scans the skin with a digital camera and analyzes your complexion. With its 120 thermal nozzles, it then camouflages signs of aging such as sunspots and hyperpigmentation and fades their appearance over time with 470nm wavelength blue LED light.
