The Comper Smarkin 4-in-1 Beauty Device is a skincare treatment device that you link to an app on your smart phone. While you can operate it manually just by pressing the buttons on the device, with the app, you can set up a treatment program and the app automatically transitions the device between the different modes. It also keeps track of the treatments and reminds you when it is time to use the device again, so it is easy to keep up with a regime.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. First, what does the Comper Smarkin 4-in-1 device do? According to the website this device gives you “Professional treatments at home with an advanced, smart skincare tool that brings forth a new generation of skin treatment and improvement via RF, EMS, MASS, and LED.” Now some of you thought, wow that sounds great and some of you are looking at the abbreviated letters and thinking what do the letters mean. I looked them up, so let’s do a quick break down of what each of the abbreviations mean:
- RF is radio frequency that can heat the dermis layer evenly over a larger area. It stimulates collagen regeneration, reduces wrinkles and provides immediate lifting and tightening.
- EMS is electrical muscle stimulation that is a micro current that promotes a deep movement of muscles and enhance blood circulation. It tightens the skin for facial lifting and helps improve skin’s contour, tones, fine lines, and puffiness.
- LED is light therapy that repairs cells and capillaries, balances facial water and oil levels, helps to eliminate acne, reduces pigment issues, and heals UV damage.
- MASS is short for massage and through micro-vibration massage at a certain frequency, MASS enhances the skin’s absorption and becomes a perfect match with other skin care products.
So essentially this device is designed through its different programs (each with three levels of intensity) and is designed to reduce wrinkles and puffiness, lift, tighten, stimulate collagen regeneration, and reduce acne and pigmentation. I can get behind all of that (who wouldn’t), so I set up the device.
Setting Up The Device
Set up was simple. The user manual came with step by step set up instructions and I downloaded the Comper Health App to my iPhone (also available for Android) and took seconds to install. I plugged in the device, turned it on and synced it with the program (and if you decide to purchase any other Comper device, they can all be linked via the same app, which means you don’t have to download a bunch of different apps and you can keep all of the monitoring information in one place for reference). Once linked I was led through a bunch of different questions about my skin. Once I submitted all of my information (it’s multiple choice. No personal questions, just questions about skin conditions and issues are asked), the system sets up a recommended treatment regimen and frequency. That’s it! Now you can start using the device right away. It is recommended that you use a Hyaluronic Acid serum with the device because the serum is good for the conditions it treats, and because applying the HA serum with the device helps it glide more smoothly over the skin. Comper did send me their Hyaluronic Acid Serum (which I really do like), but any HA serum can be used (I like knowing that I can use any HA serum to use the device).
My First Use
So, on my first use of the device, I brought up the app on my iPhone and simply pressed the start button. The device reminded me my skin needed to be clean, dry and the serum needed to be applied to the head of the device. It then waited for me to accomplish these tasks and when I was ready, I pressed the button marked ready, made sure the device was turned on and let the app connect with the device. It did and lights went on and a buzzing sounded. My first treatment combined the Massage (MASS) and radio frequency (RF). It was warm and quite pleasant. Also, the device walked me through the motions and the time I needed to use the motions.
At the bottom of the screen, I could see how long the full treatment would last and at the top I could see how long this particular segment would last. In between there was a face showing the exact placement and movements I needed to use at that time. With each shift, the device prompted me and shifted the image on screen. It was extremely easy to use, and it is one of the most user-friendly devices I have used (I do apologize, I was not able to any take pictures of me using the device or what images the app showed me during my first use because I was using the Comper Health app on my iPhone while using the device).
I do have high hopes for this device because of the technology this device has, so I expect there will be significant improvements at the end of the month. As with all skincare tools, devices, treatments, and products, consistent use is the best way to see any results. So, I will consistently use this for the next month or so then get back with all of you to let you know how well this device performed and my thoughts on the results I see. I really did enjoy the first use, and I am looking forward to continuing to test the Comper Smarkin 4-in-1 Beauty Device and until Wednesday, be happy, healthy, and beautiful!
