What Is A LED Light Therapy Face Mask?
To begin with and to make it sound more appealing, I would like to spill some celebrity beans, when Jessica Alba, Kourtney Kardashian and Kate Hudson all posted an Instagram photo of themselves during a LED light therapy face mask session, it went viral!
Freaked out? Read along ladies..
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, a diode is an electrical component with two terminals which conduct the electricity only in one direction. With an electrical current, the diode emits a bright light around the small bulb. That is technically speaking..
To make things easier, 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 2 most important wavelengths used in these masks are red and blue. And each color delivers a different kind of skin bliss..
The red rays are scientifically proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production by increasing local blood circulation. The results are noticeable plumped and glowing skin immediately after treatment, less wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin after about 2 weeks..
The blue rays are also proven to kill acne-causing bacteria (up to 80% of them to be exact),and the results are, quick breakouts elimination, and prevention of new ones..
Just like any other beauty treatment, the strength of the light is a major key of success.. The weaker (and less expensive) LED facial masks still work, but they require more time and patience before you see the results.
What Does Feel Like While Using The LED therapy Masks?
The blissful color therapy masks are painless, on the other hand they offer a warm, peaceful and relaxing experience that we all are in need of, however it’s advised not to directly look into the light bulbs and an eye mask of any dark cloth is needed to protect your eyes.

Yes, if you don’t mind looking like an alien from outer space and make sure to steer away from your little ones!But as we say so, it is important to know that commitment is key! Yes you will see results.. So it’s worth it.. For long lasting results, it is advised to repeat the therapy 3 times a week, you’ll witnessradiant and glowing skin immediately after the first treatment. As 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.
