You’ve likely seen this futuristic mask all over Instagram. Based on Dr Dennis Gross’ in-office lasers, its uses light technology to reduce wrinkles and acne. To stimulate collagen production, the mask engages 100 lights in red mode to penetrate the skin’s dermis, while it specifically tackles acne bacteria and future breakouts via its 62 blue lights.
Due to launch officially later this year, Mink is the world’s first 3D makeup printer. It has been designed to turn images – from social media, a scan, or your camera roll – into wearable makeup. The process is simple: download an app, import your image and then insert a make-up sheet into the printer to create the colours for your desired look.
Tripollar’s ‘Stop’ facial device uses radio frequency to activate the the thickest layer of the skin and stimulate collagen production. The device promises to make skin tighter and significantly reduce wrinkles within 8 weeks. At a time when regular clinic treatments aren’t readily available, this slim device offers a more than adequate substitute.
