Opté digitally scans your skin and analyzes your complexion to detect spots. It then covers ONLY the spots so your natural luminescence shines through. The result: your skin looks and feels like naturally perfect skin!
What skincare benefits does Opté have?

How is Opté Different?
How is Opté different from a regular foundation or airbrush?
Opté is more like the anti-airbrush or anti-foundation. Airbrushes, foundations, and tinted moisturizers work by covering your skin with a new, monochromatic skin tone. They cover 100% of the skin you apply them to and reduce the radiance, natural look, and weightless feel of your natural skin.
Opté uses 99% less product on your skin. It uses mineral pigments (which are similar to what you might find in a foundation), but it only puts them precisely on the spots with exactly the amount needed to camouflage the spot to the surrounding skin. So what you see after you use Opté is your radiant, natural skin instead of the mask of a different, dull skin tone.
How is Opté different than typical skincare/whitening creams?
Spot lightening creams treat all over - so both spots and the the surrounding skin appear to be lightened and the contrast remains. Opté applies Optimizing Serum ONLY on spots and NOT the surrounding skin. This targeted treatment is designed to reduce the contrast between the spot and surrounding skin.
Will it work for my needs?
What type of spots does Opté work on?

Does it work for all skin colors?
Yes, it automatically works on all skin colors.

What can I do if the Beauty Wand stops working? How can I fix minor technical issues?
Contact the Beauty Wand Helpline for any issues. Available 8am -6pm EST Monday through Friday at 844-627-7738.
Why has the Beauty Wand stopped clicking?
The Beauty Wand clicks when it is working properly, and it may stop working if both rollers are not contacting the skin or you are moving too fast. If this happens: lift the Beauty Wand away from your skin, then return it to your skin with both rollers making contact, then slowly glide the rollers along your skin. If the Beauty Wand still doesn’t click, return it to the Cradle and close the lid for maintenance.
Should I keep going over an area until the clicking stops?
The Beauty Wand clicks as it is dispenses the Serum. The clicks will diminish as the Serum covers tonal imperfections but the clicking will not completely stop because the Beauty Wand detects very small, micro-differences in skin tone.
How long does the Optimizing Serum and Preserving Disk last?
Each refill should last for about 2 months with normal daily usage. Actual timing may vary depending on daily usage length. The Beauty Wand display a yellow droplet when you have about 5 uses left and a red droplet when you are on your last usage. Make sure to exchange the refill when you see the red droplet, as each replacement refill requires 3 hours to prepare.
If I press harder into my skin does more Optimizing Serum come out?
No. Actually the lighter you press, the better the Beauty Wand works. You should barely feel the rollers gliding across your skin. You should not see any indentations in your skin when using the Beauty Wand.
How am I supposed to use the Beauty Wand over my nose?
For best results, keep the Beauty Wand flat on your nose. One way to do this is to roll up the side of your nose, like a ramp. Others find it useful to use their spare hand to pull their nose to the side, flattening it. There is a 2nd tip that is designed for the nose area as well, allowing for precision use.
How should the Wand be placed against the skin?
Hold the wand flat on your skin at all times, keeping both rollers on your skin. If you tilt the rollers, the Beauty Wand cannot accurately scan your skin.
To confirm, I should not use any foundation after I use the product, correct?
Correct. Do not use any liquid foundation or BB creams after applying the Serum. Powders, including powder foundation, bronzer, and blush are okay to use.
What should I do if I notice smearing on my skin from the rollers?
Apply skincare, including SPF products, prior to using the Beauty Wand. SPF products with less than SPF 50 are most compatible. Use a lower SPF product if smearing occurs. Consult your physician before lowering your SPF protection if you are using your SPF for a specific condition.
