6 Providers Of Advanced Skincare Solutions
From natural formulas that use ethically sourced and organic ingredients, to breakthrough technology in facial line reduction, there are skincare solutions for a variety of purposes and body types. In no particular order, here are some companies offering comprehensive at-home skin treatments.
Coming in at #1, NowMi was developed in 2017 by Dr. Zion Azar. The company states that the NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment offers spa quality care in a home use device. Two versions are available: the Basic and the Pro. Both are purported to exfoliate and protect skin, as well as infuse it with nutrients and provide oxygenation. The Pro version also performs a sonic facial cleansing.
Both devices are compact and portable. NowMi claims that the treatment takes only five minutes and provides overall better value than a traditional spa remedy. NowMi's goal is to provide women and men, from all age groups and ethnicities, with an effective and easy-to-use facial treatment that will help them look and feel their very best.
At #2 is DERMAFLASH. The company offers several systems for home dermaplane treatment, which is a method of manually exfoliating the skin. Both the ONE Speed and the LUXE models remove dead skin and peach fuzz, while the latter claims to provide anti-aging benefits. Meanwhile, the DERMAPORE device combines a pore extractor and serum infuser in one handheld unit.
DERMAFLASH is dermatologist tested and has been reviewed by several publications, including InStyle, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan. DERMAFLASH's three-step system involves prepping the skin with its PREFLASH fomula, gently sweeping the face with the device's edge to exfoliate, and finally applying the company's POSTFLASH treatment to sooth and hydrate. All treatments are cruelty, paraben, and sulfate free.
Entering the list at #3 is True Botanicals. Working with researchers at universities such as Carnegie Mellon and Cornell, the company identifies botanical extracts that are purported to be rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. After sourcing organic, wild-harvested, and sustainably grown ingredients, the brand develops formulas to address breakouts, redness, and wrinkles. Treatments offered undergo clinical trials by third-party laboratories.
The True Botanicals line includes cleansers, face masks, serums, face oils, and hair treatments. All formulas are free of fillers and harsh chemicals. In their place, the company uses plant-derived peptides and other natural extracts in all skincare essentials. For example, AC Collagen Prepeptide is an amino acid blend that is supposed to lessen the look of fine lines while restoring natural radiance.
Next at #4, Ermana Natural Skincare was created to address the need for effective skincare solutions that do not activate allergies or sensitive skin. The company's line of treatments are made from natural and organic ingredients, such as aloe vera, macadamia oil, and beeswax. Furthermore, Ermana promotes sustainability by sourcing ingredients locally, producing small batches to reduce waste, and using amber glass bottles that can be recycled or repurposed.
Ermana offers skincare essentials for aging, dermatitis and eczema, acne, and dryness, including face, hand, and full-body treatments. The company's solutions for men include the Tone Muscle Balm, used as a pre- or post-workout routine, and the Smooth Men's Face Oil, which may be applied as a post-shave treatment. Meanwhile, the Soothe Mama Gift Set for expectant mothers features both an oil and a body balm designed to soothe rashes and help prevent stretch marks.
In at #5, ALASTIN Skincare is a physician-dispensed and clinically tested daily skin regimen. Founded in 2015, the company aims to bring the highest levels of pharmaceutical science and innovation to the industry, while creating a new category of treatments designed to be synergistic with procedures. Formulas offered use TriHex technology, ALASTIN's patented blend of active peptides and botanicals. The company claims it replenishes the skin matrix in order to maintain a healthy glow and youthful appearance.
ALASTIN's line includes the Post Microneedling & Post IPL Skincare regimen, which is designed specifically for plastic surgeons and dermatologists. The system is purported to enhance the efficacy, and reduce the downtime, of both ablative and non-ablative cosmetic procedures, such as laser resurfacing, peels, micro-needling, and surgical procedures. Meanwhile, ALASTIN's array of daily skin solutions are stated to restore and renew skin.
Finally, at #6, NuFACE specializes in at-home anti-aging devices and treatments. Using the company's flagship technology, microcurrent, the NuFACE systems are clinically shown to help tone, firm, and reduce the look of wrinkles. Microcurrent is an FDA approved muscle stimulator purported to provide visibly instant and cumulative results.
NuFACE's Trinity and Mini facial toning devices are designed to give smoothness and firmness to skin around the neck, lip, eye, and brow areas, reducing crow's feet and smile lines. The Trinity Wrinkle Reducer red LED attachment, as well as the NuFACE Fix treatment, are stated to reduce the appearance of fine lines. The company also offers the NuBody toning device, the first FDA-cleared home microcurrent body treatment made to tighten skin and smooth dimples.
