History holds that the first ancient Olympic Games were staged in 776 BC in honor of the Olympian gods. The crowds that gathered in Olympia's hippodrome watched in marvel as the athletes competed. Today, as we watch the 2014 Winter Olympics over a thousand years later, we are still struck by how the skills of these well-trained athletes seem to elevate them above the ordinary.
In much the same way, the breakthrough technology of these winning anti-aging beauty tools — including LED light therapy, ultrasound and microdermabrasion — help to elevate our ordinary skin care products into something sublime. Now, onto the awards ceremony!
Ultra Renew PLUS Ultrasonic LED ($159 in the shop) is an at-home, ultrasonic, LED and galvanic device that firms and lifts skin, repair wrinkles, and helps with hyperpigmentation as well as breakouts. The three modes of Ultra Renew PLUS can be used at the same time for maximum efficiency and effectiveness, or separately. This great multi-purpose tool is what TIA founder Marta Wohrle calls her "anti-aging secret weapon." Read the full review.
Myotone Facial Toning Device ($279) is microcurrent and uses a subsensory electric current that delivers a pulse to the facial muscles and stimulates them and the surrounding tissue. Since microcurrent works at the muscular level, the Myotone Facial Toning System is a perfect complement to my LED and ultrasound devices, which work at the cellular level. This at-home device is easy to use, and the results, which include firmer and plumper skin, are immediate and impressive. Read the full review.
Riiviva Microderm Device ($299) — This at-home microdermabrasion kit, equipped with medical-grade, diamond-tip technology, enhances skin's texture and tone with its powerful exfoliating treatment. The kit comes with three tips for your face (fine, medium and coarse), 50 filters, tweezers, a charger, and a black velvet carrying case. Read the full review.
