Shani Darden is nothing short of a skin-care wizard. She's one of Hollywood's most in-demand estheticians, and her complexion-transforming products are constantly earning top spots on "best of beauty" lists. Now, she's got a new wand that's bringing her magic into our bathrooms.

The Facial Sculpting Wand ($399) is the first device in Darden's eponymous skin-care line, and gives you a taste of her in-office experience at home. It harnesses the same skin-firming "acoustic ultrasound" technology she's been using in her celeb-fave facials for years (Chrissy Teigan and Jessica Alba are fans), using gentle vibrations to transmit acoustic sound waves into the skin. This, says Darden, works to stimulate the facial muscles responsible for crow’s feet, frown lines, and parentheses lines. With continued use, the wand softens these muscles, and in turn, creates a smoother, less-furrowed skin surface.

You might notice that shopping on this page is a little different than what you’re used to. Never fear; we’ll talk you through it. With the Well+Good SHOP, you can now add products to your cart right from this article page. Just click on a product below and more details will pop up in a new window. Hit “add to cart” and voila! That’s it! As you read more SHOP articles, you can keep adding products to your cart and check out when you’re ready (look for the cart icon on the right side of your screen).

If you’re familiar with microcurrent devices (NuFace, for instance) the concept of vibrational therapy may sound familiar. The difference between the wand's acoustic sound waves and your standard microcurrent tech, though, is the depth and direction of their energy transmission. Unlike microcurrent, which moves horizontally and stays close to the skin's surface, acoustic sound waves go deep (up to 2.4 inches below the skin’s surface, says Darden) and move vertically. Because of this, they're able to make a beeline for deep muscles, giving you firmer, more lifted-looking skin and a non-invasive option for fading and preventing furrow lines.

While it may take some time to notice real results in the smoothness of your skin (around seven weeks of continued use, according to clinical studies), a surge in circulation and blood flow delivers a megawatt glow within mere minutes. Magical, indeed.
