What is light therapy? How does LED light therapy work?
It refers to the process of exposing skin to light that is in the visible spectrum - including red, blue, yellow,green, purple, cyanine, light purple - and invisible in the spectrum to penetrate deep beneath the skin's surface. As the light wavelength increases, so does the depth of penetration. Light is absorbed by your skin, and each different colour stimulates a different response - which means every colour boasts different skincare benefits.
What does an LED mask do for your face?
When used regularly, there are lots of light therapy benefits. LED light therapy can be used to reduce breakouts, pigmentation, rosacea symptoms, psoriasis and other side-effects of inflammation. If you don't suffer from the above complaints, LED light therapy can simply help to improve the general appearance of your skin and reduce visible signs of ageing.
And that's not all. The benefits of light therapy go well beneath the skin’s surface. In fact, LED light treatments have been applauded for improving mental health, too. Client feedback suggests that a short period of time spent under in-clinic LED lamps could dramatically boost our serotonin levels, which in turn lifts mood, spirits and reduces stress levels.
Since the results for your skin and mind are cumulative, you need to have regular treatments to see an effect. If you can’t afford regular LED treatments at your local salon, at-home light therapy could be the answer.
Are LED face masks safe?
Yes. Most experts agree that LED face masks are safe - since they’re non-invasive and don’t emit UV light - as long as you follow the instructions, use them for the recommended amounts of time only and protect your eyes.
The LED used in at-home devices is much weaker than what it would be in-salon, and actually, the devices often undergo much more rigorous testing because they need to be safe enough to use without the presence of a professional.
Can I use LED mask everyday?
Every LED face mask has a different recommended usage, but most should be used no more than three times per week for twenty minutes - or five times per week for 10 minutes.
What should I put on my face before LED light therapy?
Before using your LED face mask, wash your face with your favourite gentle cleanser. Afterwards, reach for your favourite serum and moisturiser.
