I Have a Confession…
As someone who has never had a serious “skincare routine” before, I never thought I’d be that dude who was talking about how much they love a skincare product.
But after 3 weeks of secretly stealing my girlfriend Lara’s Solawave red light therapy device, I have to admit—I’m completely hooked. I’ve never gotten more compliments than I have in the last few weeks.
Seriously, multiple people have mentioned that I “look so well rested” or “much happier than usual.” Even my girlfriend complimented how smooth my skin looks, not realizing the secret to my healthy complexion is her Solawave.
After seeing the effect that Lara’s Solawave had on my skin in less than a month, I wasn’t surprised to learn that it recently won the 2022 Men’s Health Grooming Award for Best Skincare Tool.
So what’s the deal with these skin healing bad boys? Let me clue you in on why this tiny device has become my new favorite addition to my grooming arsenal.
Red Light Therapy Backed by Science
When I first saw the red light beaming out of this futuristic looking tool, I thought “this has to be a scam, right?” But in researching Solawave, I found out that using certain wavelength lights to treat skin conditions (professionally known as “phototherapy”) is a high-end dermatologist-grade treatment that typically costs $60-$80 per session.
What Solawave does is take this same proven skin-stimulating technology, and put it in a small form factor you use in the comfort of your home. No appointment needed.
The low frequency red light coming out of the device stimulates healthy collagen production (the material most of your skin is made out of) which reduces the appearance of fine lines, prevents wrinkles, depuffs your face, eliminates dark spots or acne scars, and minimizes breakouts.
Solawave‘s sophisticated tech doesn’t just help you look your best on date night (which it does). It improves the long-term health of your skin too.
Plus because it’s so easy to use and you can do it at home, you actually benefit from being able to have more frequent treatment—as opposed to having to wait weeks in between professional appointments.
Microcurrent Keeps Your Face Muscles Tight
The cool thing about Solawave is that it packs not one, but TWO high grade technologies inside it: red light therapy and microcurrent.
While the surface of your skin is getting rejuvenated through red light, the deeper layers are being stimulated by 300 microamp pulses that stimulate muscles to keep them tight and fit.
This FDA approved technique essentially “works out” your face muscles, keeping them strong and youthful and preventing skin from sagging or drooping.
It’s kinda like botox—except instead of toxins that freeze your muscles in place, it’s electric stimulation that keeps your muscles in shape.
Just 5 Minutes a Day, Anywhere You Are
This might be the best part of Solawave: it’s incredibly quick and easy to use.
Instead of having to take time to travel to a dermatologist’s office on a regular basis, you can pop this portable device (they’re like the size of a razor) into any travel bag, and use it at your convenience for just 5 minutes a day.
The device activates automatically when you place it on hydrated skin (I used my girlfriend’s Renew Complex Serum, which feels really soothing). Then all you have to do is run it over your face and enjoy the warm vibrating massage. It’s kinda like brushing your teeth, only for your skin. Unmatched efficiency.
Real, Tangible Results
I first became curious after noticing a distinct glow on my girlfriend’s face, but Solawave has hundreds of 5-star reviews and some serious before and after pics on their website.
That’s what gave me confidence in Solawave: for a company to make a name for itself in skincare, it literally has to show results. You see your face every single day. You know it better than anything. If a product doesn’t work, there’s no hiding it.
Solawave has time and again made converts out of skeptics because it truly works. I’m personally a huge skeptic, so despite seeing the positive online feedback and my own girlfriend’s skin transformation, I still wanted to try it for myself.
I kid you not, I began to see results almost instantly. Specifically, I first noticed my eyes looked more awake and my jawline and cheeks looked more defined. Then I started to notice the fine lines on my forehead fading. The most noticeable thing for me, though, is how smooth my skin feels. A couple weeks in, I feel like I have entirely new skin.
Don’t Be Like Me—Get Your Own Solawave
While my Solawave trial was great, I had to cave and buy my own once my girlfriend noticed hers kept mysteriously leaving the bathroom on its own. But honestly it’s been so worth the price—at $149 for just the wand, it’s paid itself off in 3 days of use compared to what it would cost professionally.
Plus, they have a 30 day money back guarantee, so you can always return it if you’re not noticing a difference. I’d suggest going all-in and getting the device and serum together for the best results.
If you’re like me and have never really cared about skincare before, Solawave is going to be a game-changer for you.
