Did you know that you can be tech-savvy in the world of skincare? An unreal combo, I know! (Monica style)
However, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear about technology as a form of skincare. Considering the rate of advancement, soon we’ll be replacing traditional skincare products with devices that are currently only limited to salons and aesthetician’s offices.
One such tech-savvy device is an LED Light Mask. As you read more, you’ll come to know what a genius invention this is.
What Are LED Light Masks?
LED or Light Emitting Diode Masks are 3D face masks that emit light onto the face. These masks use colored lights, specifically red, blue, green, and amber, that have different wavelengths to help treat certain skin concerns. It is also known as ‘Phototherapy’ or ‘Light Therapy’.
As mentioned before, LED light treatments are more common in salons and at dermatologists’ clinics with heavy-duty machines. However, lately, there has been a rise in at-home LED devices like masks and wands.
Are LED Light Masks Safe to Use?
Let’s get this out of the way first – LED lights are not the same as ultraviolet light. Although they come from the same light spectrum, their wavelengths are completely different. These masks are absolutely safe as per the report published in the ‘Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology.’
LED Lights for Different Skin Concerns
LED light masks offer four light variants. Numbers 1 & 3 are the most commonly used.
- Blue Light: It kills bacteria on a deeper level, hence aiding in treating acne. Unlike skin care products that only treat the upper surfaces of the skin, blue LED light reaches to the core to eliminate the cause of acne. It also lowers the activity of the sebaceous glands so that they produce lesser oil.
- Green Light: It is great for treating pigmentation and hyperpigmentation. Green LED light lowers the production of melanin in the skin.
- Red Light: It is known for treating the signs of ageing. Red LED light improves blood circulation and promotes the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. It discourages the formation of wrinkles and fine lines and lightens the existing ones too.
- Amber/Yellow Light: Amber or Yellow LED light is a strong light that is able to penetrate the skin on a deeper level. It activates the lymphatic system which enables it to remove toxins from the skin’s core. It also helps in wound healing and skin hydration.
Should You Invest in an LED Light Mask?
If you can afford to invest in an authentic mask, sure.
LED light masks range from $50 to $1000. This means, there must be clones as well as overpriced masks in the market too.
That being said, LED light masks are a safe and sure way to better skin. Although they may take more time to show results than their machine version. But as we know there is no shortcut to beautiful skin. Skincare in every form demands only one thing – consistency.
