While there are a million different devices on the market that claim to smooth your skin, more often than not, they’re just a lot of hype. However, the SolaWave has me pleasantly surprised.
As a woman in her mid-twenties, noticeable wrinkles aren’t exactly a pressing issue for me yet. But I can say that preventing them is a top concern. Over the past few years, we have all spent an inordinate time attached to our screens (which is no friend to the skin). Whether it’s from squinting at my computer or staring at my phone more than I’d like to admit, I’ve visibly developed more fine lines and deeper dark circles recently.
Enter the SolaWave: a device that uses red light therapy, microcurrents, facial massage and therapeutic warmth to boost your skin’s youthful glow, fade blemishes and smooth fine lines, among other things.
Besides face rollers, I had never attempted to use a home device like this one. I, like everyone else, have the holy-grail skincare products I swear by, but after the toll this past year has taken on my face, I wanted to kick things up a notch.
