10 painless anti-aging skin care devices that really work!

Spread the love

One of my favorite parts of running this blog is sharing different products that really work – like finding anti-aging skin care devices that delivers results. As your personal test subject, I’ve used all types of devices that zap, roll, lightly suction and exfoliate in my effort to find the holy grail: younger looking skin without pain.

Say Goodbye to Painful Skincare Routines with These Painless Anti-Aging Skin Care Devices

So many skin-care devices catch our eye that it’s hard to tell the truly helpful from the purely hyped. So we asked the professionals — four dermatologists and two aesthetician, to be exact — about the best options for a number of skin concerns including acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Whether you’re already happy with your skin and just want a personalized routine to maintain it, or have some serious goals you’d like to meet, our experts shared the best beauty tech out there — including facial brushes to get a deeper clean and red-light helmets to promote hair growth. We’re focusing only on the higher investment–higher payoff beauty tech so we haven’t included manual tools (like gua sha stones). And because these devices use various forms of energy like LED light or micro current technology, consult your doctor before using if you’re pregnant or have an existing medical condition.

While many products I’ve tried are not worthy of being in a post like this (I’m looking at you tiny laser that felt like rubber bands snapping my skin), these 10 painless skin care devices have earned their spot on this list.

5 best nuskin's at-home anti-aging skin care devices that really works


Nu Skin’s portfolio boasts of different skin care device systems that are used with cosmetic formulations in the comfort of your own home. Nu Skin was proudly ranked the world's number one at-home beauty device system brand for 2017 and 2018 by Euromonitor International Ltd.* This achievement is no small feat, it has been years in the making. Each one of Nu Skin’s skin care devices offers a variety of benefits ranging from anti-aging (reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles) and cleansing. Below, you will find brief descriptions of each device and how they can address your skin care needs.

Galvanic spa® system


Nu Skin launched its first at-home spa system in 2001, nearly 20 years ago! This first edition of the Galvanic Spa was a premiere anti-aging system that eliminated the need for a trained esthetician. It was designed to work with a set of gel formulations providing pre-treatment and treatment steps.

Updates to the Galvanic Spa System continued to take place for many years. In 2004, interchangeable conductor heads were offered, expanding the product line to include a body formula. Then in 2007, another conductor head was launched to target smaller areas. In 2010, the ageLOC edition of Galvanic Spa was developed to leverage the ageLOC technology now becoming available in this line of products. This change also leveraged a new, unique, and exclusive face conductor that helped recycle the product in the most critical areas between the conductor and the skin.

5 painless anti-aging skin care devices 

Affiliate links are used below, which means at no cost to you, I may receive a commission if you choose to make a purchase from one of my links. Cheers to that!

1. The ice roller

I’m obsessed with this thing. I keep it in the freezer and use it for everything from refreshed skin to reducing inflammation in my sinuses and eyes from Sjogren’s and allergies. The Ice Roller is a super affordable, painless facial device that packs serious benefits like:

  • Reduces inflammation and puffiness
  • Improves circulation for a healthy glow
  • Reduces dark circles
  • Gives skin a refreshed look
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Helps skincare absorb deeper
  • I wrote a whole post on how to use it, including a diagram for exactly how to rub it around your face. Read the full ice roller post here.

2. current body red led face mask

I really love this thing. I do see results and I think other people do, too. The other day, someone guessed my age as a full decade lower than it is. I wasn’t even there, so they weren’t trying to be nice. They genuinely thought I was the same age as my cousin who is a decade younger than me. These moments happen quite often and I think great skin care like this mask are the reason why. (I also don’t smoke or do drugs and religiously wear sunscreen.)

The beauty of this mask is it feels like nothing. You wear it or a few minutes a few times a week and voila! Great results are waiting for you

  • Creates even skin tone
  • Boost production of collagen
  • Noticeably reduces signs of aging and wrinkles
  • Gives skin a healthy glow
  • Reduces hormonal breakouts
  • and more!

And, guess what – no down time. I’ll take it. I wrote an entire review, with lots of pictures of me wearing the mask in this post. You won’t want to miss it!

3. facial steamer

There’s a reason every professional facial begins with a good steaming! By removing impurities from under the surface of the skin and exfoliating, you see immediate improvements in skin quality!

  • Remove impurities
  • Shrink pores
  • Deep clean pores and skin
  • Gently exfoliate
  • I absolutely love a good facial steamer and think this white and cream one is so chic. Plus, it’s affordable and comes with a cute, fluffy headband to keep your hair back.

4. skin roller

A skin roller, usually made from jade or rose quartz, is a super easy, affordable and relaxing way to treat your skin to some TLC! This is the first one on this list that I started using regularly and wrote an entire post about. The diagram I created for how exactly to give yourself a facial massage has gone viral on Pinterest and been shared by a lot of skin care gurus and dermatologists online. Check out the full post here.

These handy little rollers can do a lot for your skin, including:

  • Reduces signs of aging
  • Relieves muscle tension
  • Gently contours face
  • Targets specific areas, so you can roll more in areas where you get muscle tension, need more contour or get inlammation
  • Use smaller side for delicate undereye areas and between the eyes

5. vibrating sculpting bar

If you combined a facial roller with a vibrating massager, you’d get one of these! They are able to really relieve that muscle tension, while also training the skin to move back into position for a more chiseled appearance. The vibrations can also break up any areas, like where you have knots in your shoulders, but on your face, for a smoother look. This is also excellent if you have inflammation, allergies or just need increased circulation. So many benefits for these little tools. 

  • Gently tones, lifts and contour skin, for a more chiseled appearance
  • Like a good workout for your face
  • Great for lymphatic drainage and puffiness
  • Increases circulation

I hope you found your new facial best friend on this list. These also make incredible gifts for any person in your life. Who doesn’t need a reminder to take care of themselves, too?

Thanks for reading. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
