Skin care brings it home

NEW YORK — Judging by the numbers, at-home skin care devices are hot. Enter the battery-operated Spa Sonic Skin Care System, which includes four attachments: a small brush for the face, a large brush for the body, pumice for rough areas and a facial sponge for microdermabrasion and reduction of fine lines. It is priced at $65.


According to consulting and research firm Kline & Co., power-operated, at-home skin care devices designed for daily cleansing, acne elimination and anti-aging treatment are nearly a $1 billion market at retail.
