Having expanded its Luna range and launched the first version of its UFO mask device, Swedish brand Foreo has now enhanced its customized home-facial system with the new UFO 2, which can administer treatments in less than two minutes. The new high-tech device and its accompanying masks are available online from Foreo.com.

After several weeks of lockdown and despite the progressive reopening of beauty salons, at-home professional beauty procedures are likely to have gained popularity. Beauty-tech specialist Foreo is taking advantage of this growing interest in smart beauty with a range of products designed to make personalized facials at home.

With the latest generation of its highly successful UFO, the Swedish brand is proposing a face mask applicator that is faster, more powerful and more customizable than its first-generation device. To set itself apart from its predecessor, the UFO 2 offers a wider range of LED light, with five new settings that provide an extended range of benefits, including faster penetration of active ingredients. By way of example, consumers can take advantage of the violet LED setting to reduce fine lines, blue to minimize imperfections, red to counter signs of aging and green to homogenize their complexion.

Professional skin care at home

With the latest device, Foreo has also enhanced a number of functionalities like thermo-therapy, which softens the skin to promote better absorption of active compounds. Not only does it heat up faster than its predecessor, the UFO 2 also cools down with a cryo-therapy function for anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits and emits sonic waves, which can be used to relax facial tension and gently exfoliate your skin.

Compatible with an extensive range of masks with a wide variety of virtues, the UFO 2 must be unlocked and synchronized with the "Foreo For You" application before it can be used. Once this has been done, you only have to scan the barcode of your selected mask to launch the most suitable personalized program for your skin type, and clip the mask pad into place before sliding the device across your skin.

The UFO 2, along with its range of compatible masks, is now available from Foreo’s online store at a retail price of 279 euros. There is also a mini-version of the device, which costs 179 euros.
