Hydration is important for how the skin looks and feels and also for how well it can protect us—properly hydrated skin acts as a natural barrier to external elements. Unfortunately, aging strips us of moisture and makes our skin less plump and supple.  


If you're not willing to give up on youthful, radiant, and plump skin yet, FOREO's UFO™ 3 deep facial hydration device directly combats the effects of skin losing moisture and suppleness. It's everything you need to protect your skin from dryness, dull complexion, wrinkles, and puffiness. If you want to find out more about this outer-galactic skincare experience, keep reading: because we're answering all your UFO™ 3 questions. Does UFO™ 3 really work? How often can you use your favorite pampering device? What's the difference between UFO™ 2 and UFO™ 3? Let's get to it.  

Is UFO™ 3 Better Than Traditional Moisturizers?

What sets UFO™ 3 apart from other moisturizers and masks is Hyper-Infusion Technology, which provides deep, long-lasting hydration. This efficient combination of Cryo-Therapy (cooling), Thermo-Therapy (heating), T-Sonic™ pulsations, and LED therapy helps to push the active ingredients deep into your skin, into the dermis, where they can work better than on the skin surface. The gentle heat of Thermo-Therapy softens the skin and prepares it for the absorption of active ingredients, while the cold temperature of Cryo-Therapy soothes inflammation and rejuvenates the skin. 


Featured in every FOREO device, T-Sonic™ pulsations are the signature massage technology that helps relax facial and neck muscle tension points, as well as improve blood flow. To help regenerate skin from signs of aging, a refining LED therapy uses varying wavelengths of light. Every color penetrates the skin at different depths, thus targeting different skin needs.  

Does UFO™ 3 Actually Work?

Yes, it does work! UFO™ 3 is clinically proven to increase skin moisture by 126% in 2 minutes of treatment, reduce the look of wrinkles in just 1 week, and keep skin continuously moisturized for up to 6 hours after application. If you’re thinking of just putting the regular sheet mask on, UFO™ 3 is more effective and 10x faster. An incredible fact is that 78% of users report softer skin, saying their skin is perfectly primed for makeup.  

How to Use UFO™ 3?

Using UFO™ 3 is very simple. The first step is installing the FOREO For You free app to unlock and register your new device. After carefully cleaning and drying your face and neck, you need to either secure the UFO™-Activated Mask to your device or place a FOREO sheet mask on your face, depending on what method you’re using. Then you turn your device on, select the preferred treatment by pressing the universal button or via the app, and massage the mask formula into your skin with circular motions. And voila! Relax and enjoy your at-home spa treatment! Three photos showing hands attaching a facial mask on UFO 3 deep hydration device, and a woman gliding UFO 3 over her face

Can I Use UFO™ 3 Without the App?

Yes, UFO™ 3 can be used without the app. You can manually access 8 pre-set treatments on your device. Simply turn on UFO™ 3 by pressing the universal button, then press the universal button again up to 8 times to select one of the treatments.  

How Long Does the Treatment Last?

Each of the 8 pre-set treatments deeply hydrates, massages, and revitalizes your skin in just 2 minutes, saving you both time and energy.  

Can I Use UFO™ 3 Every Day?

Yes, the recommended usage of UFO™ 3 is every morning and evening since it has been developed for twice-a-day use. But depending on your skin’s needs and personal preferences, you can use it less often.  

Are FOREO Masks Necessary While Using UFO™ 3?

You can use UFO™ 3 with non-FOREO masks and skincare products only at your own risk. Namely, FOREO hasn't evaluated and tested the safety and efficacy of combining UFO™ 3 devices with non-FOREO sheet masks and skincare products. Luckily, there's a diverse collection of UFO™- Activated masks you can choose from, depending on your skin type, goals, and preferences. FOREO UFO Activated Masks range, from left to right: Glow Addict, H2Overdose, Shimmer Freak, Matte Maniac, Youth Junkie

Can I Use FOREO Masks Multiple Times?

UFO™ Activated Masks and FOREO Sheet Masks are intended for a single use. However, you can restart the treatment if you think one treatment wasn’t enough. In that case, you can continue to use the same mask.  

Do I Need to Wash off the Mask Essence?

No, after the treatment, if there is any remaining essence, simply massage it into your skin so the active ingredients can sink into the skin and work their magic. Hyper-Infusion Technology is specifically engineered to help mask essence absorb deeper into the skin.  

Can You Use UFO™ 3 With Serum?

UFO™ devices have only been tested with UFO™-Activated Masks or FOREO sheet masks. For all other skincare products, FOREO hasn't evaluated or tested the safety and efficacy of the device. Hence, the recommendation is to use your favorite serum after the deep facial hydration treatment (or before, if you wish).  

Is My UFO™ 3 Device Safe to Use on Sensitive Skin?

Since the device offers a gentle facial treatment, it is safe to use on sensitive skin and suitable for all skin types – depending on your skin’s specific needs, you can choose from a range of different FOREO masks that cater to different skincare desires.  

Can I Use UFO™ 3 Device Around the Eye Area?

Yes, UFO™ devices are safe to use under the eyes. Just gently glide the device around the eye area, applying minimal pressure.


Additionally, one of the masks from the Advanced Collection 2.0 is designed specifically to refresh the eye contour. Shimmer Freak mask instantly awakens tired-looking eyes with brightening caffeine, hydrating rose water, firming Niacinamide, and light-reflecting particles.  FOREO Shimmer Freak Face Mask on a pink surface and ground coffee beans

Can I Use the LED Treatments on Their Own Without Using a Mask or Going Through a Program?

It's not recommended to use your UFO™ 3 device without a mask or a pre-set program as it will not offer the same efficiency or results as when combined with a UFO™- Activated Mask.  

What’s Inside UFO™ 3 Collection?

Apart from UFO™ 3, UFO™ 3 Collection includes UFO™ 3 LED, UFO™ 3 mini, and UFO™ 3 go  

What’s UFO™ 3 LED Best For?

While UFO™ 3 is best for aging skin, UFO™ 3 LED is best for dull and dehydrated skin. It uses full spectrum wavelengths, including Near-infrared (NIR), that deals with inflammation, widens blood vessels to cleanse and repair tissue, contributes to more elastin and collagen, and promotes healing while repairing minor muscle and tissue concerns.  

Can I Use UFO™ 3 Mini With All UFO™ Activated Masks?

Since UFO™ 3 mini doesn’t include Cryo-therapy, it can’t be used with all UFO™ Activated Masks and isn’t equipped to tackle redness, enlarged pores, and puffiness. However, it’s more affordable than its big sister, UFO™ 3, and cuter in size.  

Is UFO™ 3 Go the Best Option for Traveling?

If you’re a travel lover, UFO™ 3 go is truly your BFF. Its travel-friendly size makes it possible to enjoy a spa experience from your hotel room, plane, gym, or wherever your adventures take you.

What Is the Difference Between UFO™ 2 and UFO™ 3?

The main difference is that UFO™ 3 is more convenient for everyday use without the app – it’s pre-set with 8 customized treatments, which you can adjust to your preferences via Settings on the app, unlike UFO™ 2 where you had 8 slots to save your favorite mask routines. Furthermore, in UFO™ 3, LED therapy is available in 2 modes - constant and pulse. Pulsed LED has been shown to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis, enhancing the individual qualities and unique skin benefits of each light color.  

Are UFO™ 3 Devices Eco-Friendly?

Yes, all UFO™ 3 devices are eco-friendly since they’re USB-rechargeable, with the provided USB charging cable. UFO™ 3 LED will last for up to 60 minutes on a full charge, UFO™ 3 for 50 minutes, while UFO™ 3 mini and UFO™ 3 go, even though smaller in size, can last up to 40 minutes.  

How Do I Clean My UFO™ 3 Device?

UFO™ 3 is 100% waterproof, and you can wash it with soap, rinse with warm water, and pat dry with a lint-free cloth or towel. For optimal results, we recommend spraying the device with FOREO’s Silicone Cleaning Spray, rinsing it with warm water after use, and placing it on the stand to dry. Never use cleaning products containing alcohol, petrol, or acetone.
