This go-getting, glow-giving, dermatologist-touted red light tool is a red hot commodity.
By Kelly C. Mar 11, 2023
Glowing, radiant skin shouldn’t only be accessible to celebrities.
For too long, it was. Either celebs were tight-lipped about their holy grails or they were paid to endorse products that didn’t work or, worse, left the common people’s skin irritated, their bank accounts drained, and their hopes dashed.
But in the age of de-influencing and social media transparency, celebrities are coming clean about the tips and tools they use to keep their skin glowy - and no, surprisingly, not every confession begins with “At my dermatologist’s office…”
If you’re like us, scrolling Insta and Tik Tok in hopes our glowy-skinned idols will lay their skincare secrets bare, you’ve probably heard one tool mentioned more and more frequently: the Solawave 4-in-1 Red Light Therapy Wand.
Less a harsh skincare treatment and more “skin therapy,” this wand has gained traction among celebrity makeup stylists for the incredible glow it yields for all of its gentleness and ease of use.
Lil Nas X’s makeup stylist Grace Pae reported to Popsugar that she used Solawave to prep Nas for the Met Gala; Nicole Kidman’s MUA Kelsey Deenihan told The Zoe Report she used it ahead of Kidman’s Being the Ricardos premier; and Mandy Moore’s MUA Kindra Mann told ET that she used it prior to Moore’s Emmy appearance.
Even Queen Jennifer Coolidge’s MUA, Lilly Keys, used Solawave to prep her skin for the premier of her movie Shotgun Wedding.
But it’s not just MUAs that can’t seem to stop bringing Solawave up every chance they get - it’s the celebrities themselves.
Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney used Solawave in a recent GRWM video for Harper’s Bazaar.
Sydney Sweeney says,"I have been using this thing called SolaWave. I put my oils on, and then there's this red light that vibrates, and you put it over your face. I do it for five minutes every night, and I love it. I love a good end-of-day cooldown."
Your skin’s “lightbulb” moment.
Solawave’s 4-in-1 Wand is a non-invasive, at-home treatment from your skin that turns skin care into skin therapy.
According to Solawave’s website, the wand combines 4 powerful skin-health boosting technologies to create the ultimate pre-programmed (and as celebs and their MUAs seem to attest, pre-premier) daily treatment.
Red light therapy, which penetrates deeply and stimulates skin on a cellular level to rejuvenate from within, promoting a youthful appearance by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and dark spots. (You know, all of your favorite things.)
Microcurrent therapy, which uses low-level microcurrents to painlessly stimulate deeper layers of your skin (the ones your topicals can’t reach) to tone facial muscles, which in turn reduces signs of aging like sagginess and poor texture.
Facial massage, aka the use of low-level vibrations to gently massage the face, decreasing the appearance of puffiness.
And therapeutic warmth, because warming the skin helps to promote the better penetration of topicals. (Because when your topicals aren’t penetrating, you might as well be lighting your money on fire.)
All of which, together (especially when paired with the boosting power of their Renew Complex Serum) leaves you with a confident, radiant glow.
That’s four treatments in one device.
Not to mention, that’s:
One less trip to the clinic…
Hours less spent sitting in traffic on the way to the clinic…
Hundreds less spent monthly (thousands, yearly) on those exact treatments…
And, according to Solawave’s thousands of reviews, your best skin in two weeks.
After using Solawave for 14 days:
93% reported their skin looked better than it ever did before using Solawave
“This little magic Wand and serum somehow depuffed and tightened the problem area on my face."
The proof is in the pudding. (Or, rather, the glazed-donut-glow of the skin of everyone using Solawave.)
If you can get your hands on it, by all means, do. It sells out like clockwork every time a new A-lister or their MUA posts about it.
But if you won’t take your favorite actress’s word for it, there’s plenty more reviews - from people without personal MUAs.
And with over 5,000,000 units sold…that’s a lot of social proof.
“After my esthetician recommended Solawave to me, I took the plunge and it’s made such an improvement to my skin.”

“It’s no secret that I have been on the skin struggle bus for, well…years. THIS amazing beauty is a GAME CHANGER!!! This is the best I’ve felt about my skin in years and I keep getting compliments. My skin is glowing again!”
- Melanie, 41, Verified Solawave Customer
“I didn’t really know what to expect when my girlfriend gave me a Solawave for my birthday. My skin looks a lot healthier, like I’m in my 20s again! Especially those under eye bags and fine lines on my forehead and cheeks.”
- Doug, 37, Verified Solawave Customer
“I’m still in my 20s, so I don’t have a lot of visible issues other than the occasional breakout. But I also know this won’t last forever. My mom always told me that good skincare requires a lot of preventive measures. So I decided to be proactive and bought a Solawave Wand after seeing it all over TikTok. It feels great, gives my skin an unbelievable glow, and I love how easily it fits into my routine.”
