Story of Solawave

With patented skincare technology, a team of earnest engineers and scientists out of Los Angeles sought to flip “the script on who has access to the best tools and technologies. We’re taking powerful, proven technologies out of the doctor’s office and putting them into the palm of your hand to support your skin journey, wherever you are.” (1) We love that!

Bringing science-backed, proven results, with technology that is esthetician-approved? Solawave’s main statement of “Beauty for everyone” seems to be truly focused on such.

After 2 weeks of use, 93% of Solowave 4-in-1 Skincare Wand with Red Light Therapy users noted have healthier, more plump-looking skin. Solowave recently won the Community Choice Beauty Awards with the infamous esthetician and founder of SB Skin, featured in Vogue and Elle, Shamara Bondaroff, shares, “I’ve been specializing in microcurrent for 9 years and Solawave is a great microcurrent tool you can use in the comfort of your own home – with the added benefit of Red Light Therapy working together at the same time… this is it!”

If you’re a conscious consumer, let’s dive in how this purportedly incredible technology works to see if these awards a true reflection on it’s skin-loving potency.

How Does It Work & How Do I Use It?

If you follow any esthetician or skincare guru online, it can feel as though their morning and nighttime routines requires a PhD in all things dermatology and at least sincere dedication on a good day. But not to worry, lets’ break it down by reviewing each of Solawave’s most coveted products:

4-in-1 Skincare Wand & Red Light Therapy

Containing four technologies into a single wand that requires only 5 minutes of your time to complete a full treatment, Solawave’s 4-in-1 Skincare Wand & Red Light Therapy is said to reduce puffiness, signs of wrinkles, increase serum production, and generally increase glow by boosting collagen production with persistent use. 

Four technologies that reduce the signs of aging:

Red Light Therapy: Also referred to as “photobiomodulation,” the scientific community recognizes red light therapy as a viable means to repair deep tissues and reduce inflammation. When it comes to a focus on the facial dermal layers, this can reduce early signs of aging including wrinkles, sagging skin, and puffiness, as well as increased collagen production. (2,3)

Microcurrent Therapy: A gentle form of tiny currents that is reported to increase firmness of skin due to stimulation of the dermal layer and facial muscles (think of this as a “mini

workout” for your face). (4)

Facial Massage: Mild frequency of the wand provides a gentle form of massage that increases blood flow to the skin’s surface; providing more nutrients for repair. (4)

Therapeutic Warmth: In addition to the massaging feature, a gentle warming feature on the wand also increases blood flow; opening us vessels near the skin’s surface. Additionally, the pores on the skin start to open, allowing topic serums and lotions to be absorbed more efficiently. (4) Let no drop go to waste.

How do I use it?

Simply wash your face clean, pat dry. Apply your favorite serum or try Solawave’s Renew Complex Serum to allow ease of the wand to glide on your face. The wand will automatically turn on once it touches your skin. Glide in upward and outward motion under the eyes, cheeks, brow, forehead, and even neck. Use for 5 minutes, up to 3 times per week.

Bye Acne: 3-Minute Pimple Spot Treatment

If you battle with chronic or occasional acne, you have likely tried every salicylic acid treatment known to the market. But have you ever considered about treating one form of the root cause? Bacteria. You may think that is a winless battle, but Solawave has done their homework when it comes to science class.

In addition to harnessing the skin benefits of red light therapy, be amazed by the power of blue light therapy—known to kill icky bacteria that cause the painful inflammation in cystic and mild acnes.

Let’s take a look at the two specific technologies in the Bye Acne: 3-Minute Pimple Spot Treatment:

Blue Light Therapy: A study out of Vanderbilt University demonstrated a statistically significant reductio of lesion size and redness in acne lesions compared to the control group when utilized on a daily basis by reducing bacteria concentrations and decreasing sebum (oil) production. (5,6)

Red Light Therapy: Just as in the 4-in-1 Skincare Wand with Red Light Therapy, red light wavelength helps assist in repair of skin that may be scarred, discolored, and reduces inflammation. (4)

How Do I Use It?

Simply wash face clean. Turn on device, hold over the area you wish to heal for 3 minutes—device will turn off after this time. Move to each region you wish to improve with this powerful science-based technology.

Renew Complex Activation Serum

Want to help facilitate the healing and regeneration process that the 4-in-1 Skincare Wand with Red Light Therapy offers? Solawave has designed a formulation containing blue tansy oil, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera to improve the conduction of wavelength from the wand to the deeper layers of your skin. Hello, Renew Complex Activating Serum!

Entirely fragrance-free for those with sensitivities and 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and produced in small batches. Blue tansy has a unique ability to clear pores on the skin, hydrating nearly as well as hyaluronic acid which penetrates deep at the dermal cell layer. (7). Solawave also added the benefit of aloe vera to provide essential vitamin B and C for added

antioxidant properties. (7) Renew Complex Activating Serum is available in a single, 2-pack, and 3-pack option.

How do I use it?

Wash and dry your gorgeous face. Apply a generous amount to clean hands, start on your face, moving in upward and outward motions, using any remaining amounts of serum onto your neck and decolletage area.

Customer Testimonies

With nearly 1,000 verified customer reviews for each product offered by Solawave, let’s take a look at what these skin gurus think of Solawave’s products. One of the more recent reviews by Teri M. writes,

“Started showing a difference in two weeks. I’m totally amazed…it’s working! My face is softer, and lines and wrinkles are truly fading away. Thank you…You saved me from buying those expensive face creams that didn’t show any difference.”

Amazing testimony! To notice results within 2 weeks is a quick time in the lifetime of skin. Plus, reducing lines and saving money from experience skincare creams is an absolute delight, indeed.

Chandler M. shares his experience with the 3-Minute Pimple Spot Treatment:

“I’ve had my Solawave for a month & my acne scars have gone down, my breakouts are smaller and go away quicker. SO much cheaper than going to a Laser place and getting sessions done once a month, when I can do this every night for a one-time cost!”

Customers Notice The Difference After Using Solawave

A seemingly common theme here. Not only do customers notice a considerable difference after a one- to two-month duration of persistent use, but customers rave about the fraction of the cost they are investing in Solawave compared to in-office visits. Skin and financial gains? We love it.

Doug, a 37 year old man, was lucky enough to have his girlfriend gift him the 4-in-1 Skincare Wand and Red Light Therapy and the Renew Complex Activation Serum. He writes,

I didn’t really know what to expect when my girlfriend

gave me Solawave for my birthday. My skin looks a lot healthier, like I’m in my 20’s again! Especially those under eye bags and fine lines on my forehead and cheeks.”

We could all use a loving partner who has got our back (or rather, face). It sounds like Doug is noticing a difference with persistent use over the course of 21 days.
