What it is: A handheld LED device for treating acne. The blue light and dermal heating neutralize acne-causing bacteria.
Why it's great: This handheld, at-home acne-destroying device is loved by reviewers because it gets rid of acne fast. "Whenever I use the device on a premature blemish, it gets rid of it and I notice a difference within a day or two, which is great," says one user. Another reviewer says her "blemishes have faded drastically by the next day." One woman noticed a difference in her overall skin after just two weeks of daily use. A TotalBeauty.com member who says this helps keep her skin clear on a regular basis uses it while she watches TV -- nothing like catching up on your TiVO and clearing your skin at the same time, amiright?
Before you buy: Silk'n Blue should be used every day, for three to four minutes on each area of the skin, for three to seven weeks. The head is about two inches wide, so you can expect to spend a lot of quality time with this device.
Salon rate: A blue light treatment is usually $80-100 in a spa or medical office, and will usually include a facial and 20-30 minutes under the light.
