What is a LED Light Therapy Face Mask?
LED facial masks use color light therapy (UV-free) in specific wavelengths via tiny LED bulbs to increase facial blood circulation and promote collagen production, skin healing, and acne reduction.
The best LED face masks include at least 2 important wavelengths: red and blue.
The red rays are scientifically proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production by increasing local blood circulation. The results:
1. Plumped, glowing skin immediately after treatment
2. Fewer wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin after about 2 weeks
3. Faster healing of acne
The blue rays are proven to kill acne-causing bacteria (up to 80% of them to be exact), which results with:
1. Speedy elimination of acne breakouts
2. Prevention of new acne breakouts
The strength of the light is key for success.
The weaker (and less expensive) LED facial masks still work, but they require more time and patience before you see the results.
Do LED Face Masks Work?
Both red LED light therapy and blue light therapy are scientifically proven to work.
Red light rays are proven to boost collagen production– responsible for the elasticity and firmness of your skin while promoting faster skin healing.
Blue light rays are proven to destroy acne-causing bacteria which results with a significant reduction in acne lesions, blackheads and whiteheads (without antibiotics).
Through my personal experience, I can tell you that YES, LED facial masks WORK.
But not in a flash.
When Can I Expect Results?
You’ll see some results (such as radiant, glowing skin) immediately after the first treatment.
For wrinkle reduction, toned skin, brightened skin and acne prevention you’ll have to be consistent with your home treatment and you’ll see noticeable results in 4-6 weeks.
Worth it, isn’t it?
Celebrity expert esthetician Shani Darden promises immediate results after a 20 minute home treatment and recommends repeating treatment 3 times a week for long-lasting results.
