Face to Face: Comparing UFO vs UFO 2

FOREO Newswire / Reviews

FOREO UFO with lights

Two otherworldly beauty-tech devices go head to head.

Did you know that UFO stands for “Ur Future Obsession”? That is to say that all of FOREO’s UFO devices will change the way you do your skincare forever. Both UFO and UFO 2 (and their mini counterparts) use out-of-this-world technology to deliver more efficient facial treatments faster than ever before. But what makes UFO 2 stand out? Let’s go through the key differences between the new device and its predecessor.

Full Spectrum LED Light Therapy

The OG UFO device offered something truly life-changing. It incorporated LED Light Technology into skincare – that way you get the best that beauty-tech has to offer, all from the comfort of your home. UFO comes with red, green and blue LED lights. But how did we improve on this technology?

We incorporated full spectrum LED Light Therapy. That means five additional light wavelengths with their unique benefits – calming, relieving, soothing, revitalizing, and more! And the best part is that this innovative technology helps treat your skin all while boosting the absorption of active ingredients. This ensures you get the most out of each supercharged facial treatment.

The More (benefits), The Merrier

Both devices come with built-in heating and cooling. The UFO 2 comes with ultra-fast heating – really making sure that ingredients are infused into the deepest layers of the skin. It also works with ALL the UFO activated smart masks – incorporating the optimal temperature, pulsation intensity & LED wavelength for maximum effect.

In addition, The FOREO For You App is here to provide the ultimate user-friendly experience. Use the app to unlock the full potential of UFO 2, control and adjust the intensity of settings and create customized supercharged facial treatments. You can even order masks via the app or use the “Find My UFO 2” feature if you ever misplace your beloved device. Skincare smarter and reap all the benefits!

UFO 2 vs UFO In Short:     

UFO 2 comes with the full spectrum of LED lights, faster heating and works with all of the UFO-activated smart masks. Still, there’s no denying that both of these beauty-tech devices are beyond impressive.

    I wonder if the UFO can be controlled and adjusted the intensity of settings ie heat level like UFO2.

    • carly says:

      Hi Yuki! The UFO has a manual setting that you can turn the heating and cooling settings off or on whilst also adjusting the LED lights 🙂 This can give you a more personalized treatment.

  2. Yuki says:

    Oh that’s wonderful. Thank you for your reply. 🙂

    Does all the ufos need to scan the masks prior starting,
    So basically if you dont have your mask the product does not work ????

    • carly says:

      The UFO does store information on the mask and you can use it via the manual mode. Please check our website on the UFO to download the manual to help you with this.

  4. Mika says:

    Hello FOREO Team,

    which masks are not compatible with UFO?
    Are there any specific UFO2- compatible masks?

    • carly says:

      Hi Mika, The good news is all masks are compatible to the UFO and UFO 2. Please keep checking on our website foreo.com and sign up to news letters to hear of latest devices and products as we are always looking, inventing and producing new skin care products.

  5. Reet says:

    Is the mini 2 not as powerful as UFO 2?

    • carly says:

      Hi Reet! The main difference between the UFO and the UFO Mini is that the latter does not have cryo-therapy. Some of the masks that are available on our website require this cryo-therapy in order to provide the best possible results.

  6. Anh says:

    Would i be able to use my regular sheet mask with the UFO?

    • carly says:

      Hi Anh, We have never tested out the UFO devices on other sheet masks so we can not guarantee how their ingredients would react or how the sheet mask would hold so we would recommend only using the UFO masks as intended. Hope that helps 🙂

  7. Lisa says:

    Can UFO2 target pigmentation area better?
    Thank you

    • carly says:

      Hi Lisa, Great question! The LED lights on the UFO and UFO 2 range will help benefit the areas of pigmentation and you can use your device in manual mode to emit the LED light that you require so personalising your treatment further. I hope this helps 🙂

  8. Dann says:

    Each led light is for what?

    • carly says:

      Hi Dan, Each LED has skin helping properties to ensure healthy glowing skin.

  9. Mag says:

    Hi, is there a trade in program to upgrade the UFO to UFO2?
    Are there masks that are available only for UFO2 and not UFO?

    • carly says:

      Hi Mag, Currently we do not have this program but the good news is the UFO and UFO 2 do share the same masks at this moment so please do not feel that you are missing out as your UFO is still a fantastic device to have in your bathroom cabinet 🙂

  10. Josephine says:

    When will the ufo be available?

    • carly says:

      Hi Josephine, Please feel free to contact our Customer Care Team on FOREO.COM who can assist you further in the availability of the UFO in your country.

  11. Arrow says:

    I’m wonder how can I turn on the function CRYO THERAPY on my UFO. When I choose the colour, only appear T-Sonic and “Cool” “Heat” function only. No Cryotherapy

    • carly says:

      Hi Arrow, The Cool tab on the Smart Settings of the UFO is the Cryo Therapy. So please select cool to get this setting alone if you wish 🙂

  12. Anaid McDonald says:

    Is this safe to use while pregnant?

    • carly says:

      Hi Anaid, Firstly congratulations! Regarding your question, sure the UFO should be absolutely fine during pregnancy. Of course, you may understand that during this time that there will be hormonal changes which may change the skins behaviour so I will include a handy link that lists all our ingredients to our masks for your records in case you need to refer back to anything.


  13. Sophie says:

    I can’t seem to find the UFO 2 on the Foreo website? Is this no longer available?

    • carly says:

      Dear Sophie, If you need some help to see if the UFO 2 is available in your area but you can not find it on our website then please feel free to get in touch with our Customer Care team who can assist you further 🙂

  14. Fatin says:

    J’aimerai savoir si les lumières LED ne présentent aucun danger pour les nodules thyroïdiennes au niveau du cou.

    • carly says:

      Cher Fatin, veuillez noter que vous ne devez pas utiliser l’UFO™ sur votre région thyroïdienne. J’espère que cela t’aides! Sincères amitiés 🙂

  15. Chris says:

    Are the foreo masks eg.: FOREO UFO Green Tea Purifying Face Mask (6 Pack) compatible with FOREO UFO mini 2 Device as well?

    Does the masks work on both FOREO UFO 2 Device and FOREO UFO mini 2 Device?

    • carly says:

      Dear Chris, your Green Tea is compatible with UFO and UFO 2, but it is not compatible with your UFO 2 Mini device.

  16. Chris says:

    Any foreo mask incompatibility for FOREO UFO 2 Device and FOREO UFO mini 2 Device?

    • carly says:

      Hi Chris! Please note that our UFO and UFO 2 are compatible to all of our UFO-activated masks. UFO mini 2 isn’t compatible with the masks that use cryotherapy.
