NEWS – Proctor & Gamble has come out with a cool device called the Opté Precision Skincare System. It’s a wand that scans your face with a tiny digital camera at 150 images per second and uses blue LED lights to enhance the contrast in your skin. It detects “age and sun spots, redness and discoloration, blemishes, scars, and spider veins” (Opté website). It then applies the precise amount of serum needed to cover only those blemishes using “120 thermal inkjet nozzles inside the wand that deposit 1,000 picoliter droplets (that’s one billionth of a liter)” (CNET) so that your skin looks flawless.
The Opté Precision Skincare device uses their special Optimizing Serum which will reduce the appearance of age and sun spots over time – usually 8 to 12 weeks. The serum contains things like mineral pigments and niacinamide (Vitamin B3) (Opté website). Opté treats only the blemishes on your skin thus using much less product than you would normally and it’s not a laser so it is gentle on your skin as well.
The Opté Precision Skincare System is not cheap and is only available at the Opté website. The starter kit is $599 (includes the Beauty Wand, 2 Wand Tips, Cradle, Power Cord, Optimizing Serum, Preserving Disk) and the serum refills are $149 (includes Optimizing Serum and Preserving Disk). Whew, beauty is not cheap!
