The At-Home Tool That Uses NASA Technology Research to Eliminate Wrinkles

Let’s Just Get to the Point:
Elevare’s devices—specifically the Ivory and Plus+ versions—use LED light therapy to firm saggy skin and improve the complexion’s overall appearance.

If You Want to Know More:
When it comes to anti-aging, the most effective treatments almost always happen at the dermatologist’s office. From microneedling to lasers, there’s no shortage of procedures available that minimize the appearance of an aging complexion. And while we certainly don’t mind heading into the derm’s office for a treatment every so often, we can’t help but wish we could bring those same procedures home with us to get a similar, youth-boosting result all on our own. Thankfully, this is finally a reality.

Elevare Skin is an FDA-cleared medical device that uses LED light therapy (which is commonly found in many dermatologist’s treatments), to rejuvenate the skin—all in the comfort of your own home. Supported by clinical studies and research originally conducted by NASA, Elevare’s light deeply penetrates the skin to improve the overall appearance over time.

With two main versions, Elevare meets the needs of a large variety of skin care concerns. The Elevare Plus+ is the brand’s most powerful anti-aging medical device that uses a combination of red light and infrared light therapy to mend skin damage from the sun, naturally fill fine lines and increase the production of collagen fibers and elastin. Additionally, the thermal activity generated by the device improves blood circulation to help deliver nutrients to the skin for the ultimate glow.

This product is so powerful, in fact, that a two-month clinical trial by the Princeton Research Division found that 100 percent of users felt that their skin looked younger after using the device, and 98 percent felt their skin looked significantly firmer. Talk about some impressive stats.

The other device—which I tested out myself—is called Elevare Ivory and focuses less on anti-aging and more so on bringing the skin back to its clearest, healthiest form. Using blue light phototherapy and topical heat, the device disinfects and detoxifies the skin to eliminate bacteria trapped under the skin’s surface while also reducing redness, inflammation, pigmentation and pore size.


To use, I first began with a completely clean face (no lotions or makeup!) and then ran the device along my face in small circular motions using light pressure. I did this for about three minutes on each area of the face (below the eyes, forehead, cheeks and chin) and then followed up the treatment with a bit of moisturizer. There was no pain and the whole process took only about 15 minutes, which made it the perfect activity to do while watching television after a long day at work.

With such amazing results, this device is clearly a good investment for those who are serious about their skin care routine (after all, it’s a professional treatment to use at home!). However, with the Ivory costing $4,500 and the Plus+ costing $4,700, it’s a pretty hefty commitment, so be sure you know your exact skin care needs before purchasing.

    Wow this sounds so amazing and to good to be true. I would absolutely love to try one or both of them. Like most women I want to age gracefully or put off aging for as long as possible. All though they are a little pricey it’s still a lot less that going under the knife. Hopefully I will be blessed enough to just try it sometime soon.

    This product seems pretty amazing; I would love to be able to try it. It’s pretty awesome that initial research was conducted by NASA. It’s very pricy, but if this is a device that can provide actual results that one can get in the dotor’s office, without actual going to the doctor, it would be worth it. I’ve heard so much about led lights helping with skin issues and that’s something I definitely need help with. If the results from using this product are like the ones shown in the pictures, then it seems like purchasing this product is not a waste, but rather an investment in the future of your skin

    This article is amazing. It goes over everything you need to know in terms of how each device works and how it works. I love the anti aging effects and how you can get it though a device that would otherwise cost thousand of dollars. This was really informing!

    This product sounds interesting. I would love to try this product out, but I am a little wary because of the price tag. I found it pretty interesting that this product had research done by nasa, that’s pretty amazing in my opinion. I would definitely love to try this out because one of the things I’ve learned is that prevention is key; I don’t want to start using products when my skin starts showing signs of aging, I would like to slow my skin to age gracefully but be healthy. I understand why this product is a bit pricey, it is supposed to essentially be like the machines found in the doctor’s office and those machine are obviously expensive, but in the long run it may be worth it, especially if the results are like the ones I saw in the picture; the usage over the years would definitely add up, showing healthy and beautiful skin that’s aging well.

    Some of our princesses have struggled with acne. We usually have team bonding every month. We could definitely use one of these during our bonding, as a fun way to talk about skin care and taking care of their skin.

    Fantastic article and looks extremely promising! This is a great alternative to someone who prefers a non invasive approach to anti-aging.

    I want to go as far as I can to age gracefully with out having to use injections or surgery. Though this product is expensive, I wonder if you add up the cost of cosmetic procedures over time if it would not actually save you money? I’m definitely interested in trying it out and seeing the results!

    Seriously, this sounds like the fountain of youth for your skin (and with the convenience of using it at home?? Could it get any better?) That’s it, I NEED to try this.

    Very informative article. I have done blue/red light therapy at my dermatologist office and it 100% works. To have an at home product that can produce similar results would be life changing! Seriously interested in purchasing.

    I’ve followed Elevare for many months! I have been able to see astonishing results that they have shared! I’ve always struggled with acne and feeling beautiful without makeup. I’m getting married in a little less than a year, and it is my ultimate goal to get one of these to not only improve my skin, but my confidence as well!

    I’ve seen this amazing device through a few different people. After reading this article I am convinced that this does wonders for your skin! I would love the opportunity to win this and begin implementing it in my skincare routine!! I’d love to be one of the ones with amazing results while also being proactive in preventative measures. It’s so great that this is something that’s available for people like me to own and not have to specifically seek out skincare specialist for the procedure. As a (fairly) young mom of two, skincare has become one of my ultimate top priorities! I want to always have healthy, glowing, youthful, radiant skin as I continue to get older. Thank you for this opportunity!

    I love the fact that this article talks about the benefits of using Elevare. I would rather use this device for 15 mints instead of going to the doctor to get shots all over my face. These devices will allow skin improvement in the comfort of my own house.
