High-tech beauty products

<p>Beauty regimens aren't what they used to be. Women everywhere are turning to high-tech devices to smooth hair, clean their faces and firm up skin without surgery. Here's a look at some of the top high-tech beauty products on the market:</p>

Zap wrinkles

<p>Light-therapy product Quasar MD reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to help create younger-looking skin. Once exclusive to spas and doctor’s offices, a smaller version of the powerful anti-aging product is now available for the home use. The Quasar MD ($795) emits wavelengths of natural red and infrared light to boost blood flow, and this smooths out wrinkles by stimulating collagen and creating a glowing look. Users report seeing results after using the product for 15 minutes about two times a week.</p>

Clean your face

<p>Face cleansing brushes have gained massive popularity over the past few years, as more women have turned to tech devices to clear and clean up skin. The Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System ($149.99), which comes in various colors including white, lavender, blue and tangerine, uses a soft mechanical brush whose gentle bristles moves back and forth 300 times each second to stimulate circulation. Pressing the device to the face removes six times more makeup and two times more dirt and oil in just one minute than a typical face wash. The device is suited for all skin types.</p>

Smooth hair

<p>CHI by Houston-based Farouk Systems has been taking the frizz out of wavy hair for years with its collection of flat and curling irons. Now the company has gone digital by embracing high-tech microchip technology embedded into devices to ensure each hair on the head gets the precise amount of heat. The technology caters to every strand’s individual texture for a silky and shiny finish. Most recently, the company launched its CHI Digital Ceramic Orbit Curlers ($159.97) line, which also uses the same technology to produce moist heat with consistent temperature, without a clamp found in typical curling irons. Meanwhile, far infrared and negative ions help reduce static while giving curls bounce, shine and moisture.</p>

Get a tan

<p>This first-of-its kind device requires no sun or trip to the salon to get a tan. The Evolv Sidekick ($50) is a heated airbrushing system that features a spray-gun that shoots out warm air and formulas to spice up your skin tone. Users can pick a scent, from tea tree oil to coconut, that blends with three formulas that prime, tan and moisturize skin. The Evolv Sidekick also features an accelerator option, which makes the glow show up in just two to four hours, instead of the typical eight.</p>

Remove hair

<p>Women who never want to deal with shaving, waxing, razor burn and ingrown hairs have been attracted to hair laser-removal packages at spas for years. But the FDA-approved TRIA Hair Removal Laser is touted as the only hair removal laser that delivers permanent results at home. The device – which targets each individual hair – decreases hair growth in just 90 days and takes about six months to fully stop hair from growing back. The TRIA laser is best suited for those with lighter skin and darker hair. The built-in skin sensor determines if the at-home laser hair removal is suitable for the user's skin type.</p>
