With all the skin-care tech on the market these days, it can be tempting to fill your beauty cabinet with enough devices to rival an esthetician's office. Your bathroom may be stocked with all kinds of acne-squelching, wrinkle-reducing, and discoloration-fighting gadgets for your face; however, if you want to deal with any of these issues on your body, the only tool you need is the new SkinInc Tri-Light Body Sculpt Fit ($295), which combines LED lightsmicrocurrent, microvibration, and heat.

The technology

There's a lot of super sciencey stuff happening within the palm-sized gadget, so bear with me while I break it down. First, let's talk about the red, blue, and green LED lights. "Red light therapy activates collagen production to reduce visible signs of aging and to restore healthy, glowing skin," Dennis Gross, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Dennis Gross Skincare previously told Well+Good. Generally, these lights are used to firm skin, reduce age spots, sun damage, and redness, and promote skin healing. "And blue light is used to kill acne-causing bacteria to improve the skin’s clarity and prevent future breakouts," he adds. And with green LED lights, you'll get calming and hyperpigmentation evening effects.

Next, there's the microcurrent, which you may be familiar with from other skin-firming devices like the ZIIP or Nuface. This type of technology works by sending gentle electrical waves through the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin for a stronger, bouncier complexion. It also has brightening, plumping, and detoxifying effects, and its ability to do so much with zero downtime explains why it's become such a staple in at-home devices over the course of the last decade.

Finally, the tool's microvibrations work to improve circulation to reduce puffiness and skin sagging, and its heating element (which warms up to 108°F) helps to relieve tension all over.

How it works

The Tri-Light Body Sculpt Fit has four settings, each of which harnesses different elements of its technology to target a different neck down concern.

1. Lift: This mode uses red LED lights to stimulate collagen as a way to tighten sagging skin. Because this type of light promotes blood circulation and accelerates skin repair, it helps to improve your skin elasticity.

2. Smooth: If you're dealing with acne or inflammation, this is the setting for you. The blue LED lights it utilizes have calming and anti-bacterial properties, which help to regulate sebum production to diminish breakouts on your chest, back, and butt. They also have a calming effect, which will help tone down any redness or irritation you may be experiencing.

3. Glow: In this setting, you'll reap the benefits of green LED plus microcurrent and microvibration. When combined, these three technologies work to stimulate lymphatic circulation to deliver detoxifying effects. Additionally, it helps to target pigmentation issues including dullness and sunspots.

4. Warm: This mode, in which the device heats to its maximum 108°F temperature, is like a DIY hot stone massage. It has tension-relieving and mood-boosting effects, and is the perfect addition to any recovery routine.

How to use it

One of the best features of the device is that you can tailor it to fit your individual needs on a given day. All you have to do is massage it on your area of concern, and it will do the rest of the work for you. So, for example, if your shoulders are feeling extra tight, you can treat yourself to a 10-minute "warm" session for some instant relief. Or if you're dealing with a chest breakout, simply turn on "smooth" mode and rub the device on the area. While you may experience some results instantly (particularly on the tension-relieving and glow-inducing front), you'll see improvements with wrinkles and skin sagging over time. The more you use it, the better the results will be.

At $295, it's not exactly cheap, but when you consider the fact it's so versatile, it makes the price tag easier to justify. Muscle knots, sagging skin, body acne—and pretty much any other neck-down skin issues you may be dealing with—don't stand a chance.
