Facegym Pro EMS Facial Device, £575 | The PureLift Lab


If a lack of tone and definition is your main concern, this is the tool to try. It firms and strengthens the muscle fibres within your face using triple-wave microcurrent technology – so it gets deep down – to ensure the skin on top stays supple and strong. As you move it across your face, you’ll feel gentle electrical pulses stimulating your face. It can be used everywhere the jawline, forehead, cheeks, brows – you name it. Use it daily – ten minutes a time is enough – and within a few weeks, you’ll start to see the quality of your skin improve. It’s ideal for tackling morning puffiness, too.

Facial Beauty Roller, £24 | Homedics


One of the best for those on a budget, the Homedics roller is a great way to dip your toe into the world of microcurrent devices. The nodules knead your skin, while simultaneously delivering gentle pulses that firm and sculpt your face over time. We recommend using it with a serum or oil to allow for a bit of slip – putting it in the fridge can also help with depuffing. You only need to use it for ten minutes or so daily to see a difference.

Those wanting to tone and firm without any irritation should try Magnitone’s small, compact device. Often referred to as ‘game changing’, its microcurrent technology gently pulses skin, toning and lifting it for a firmer appearance. Quick and easy to slot into your routine, the metal plates cool skin as you get to work. With different settings for every preference, use it along your jaw, upper lip, cheeks and neck.

Trinity & Trinity ELE Attachment Set, £325 (was £438) | NuFace


Experts and influencers swear by NuFace for lymphatic drainage. Yes, it sculpts and tones, but it also draws out excess fluid to depuff and contour your complexion. Apply a serum or an oil first, then start massaging your skin. You’ll find regular use helps your serums and creams absorb better too, as well as enhancing the structure of your facial framework. As with others on this list, you need to stick with it to see results – at least three times a week is recommended.

This SolaWave wand has gone viral and continues to sell out time and again. Using red light therapy, it works to smooth skin and even out tone with regular use – minimising issues like wrinkles, dark spots and redness. It also uses microcurrents to firm muscles and depuff. It’s designed to be used with its own serum, but your own will work just as well. Use it three times a week for best results.

TheraFace PRO, £375 | Therabody


This high-tech device fires on all cylinders and is beloved by expert facialist Teresa Tarmey. Not only does it use microcurrent waves, it has in-built LED lights to tackle issues like redness, uneven tone and pigmentation. Regular use is proven to stimulate and firm the muscles within your face, giving your complexion a healthier, fresher look. A worthwhile investment if you’re serious about results.

Nanocurrent Device, £425 | ZIIP Beauty


This small but mighty device combines both microcurrent and nanocurrent waves for effective, skin-smoothing results. The two work in tandem to get deep down into your skin, firming muscles and energising skin cells to produce better collagen and elastin. The result? Bouncier, plumper-looking skin that retains its firmness with regular use. Fans include A-list facialist Abigail James, who recommends using this at least three times a week for consistent and visible results. Your face, neck and brows can all benefit – expect skin to take on a more refined appearance within a few weeks of use.
