They look futuristic, the new light therapy masks for smooth, radiant and even skin. They are becoming more and more popular as home use and are becoming the favorite tool in the beauty industry and celebrities. After all, they should help to reduce wrinkles, blemishes and pigment spots, be suitable for all skin types and easy to use. This naturally increases demand. And the best part. All without pain and side effects.

LED masks for beautiful skin

Light-emitting diode light therapy was originally developed to promote wound healing. Studies have shown that LED light promotes cell division and thus cell renewal and is able to repair tissue. This knowledge from the skin clinics was used at some point to make light therapy usable for the various skin conditions at home.

The LED masks often work with different colors. Each light has a different wavelength (given in nanometers), so that they penetrate the skin at different depths and unfold their effect there. With increasing light wavelength, the penetration depth increases. This light, in turn, is absorbed by receptors in the skin, and each color of light stimulates a different response in the skin.

With regular use, the innovative anti-aging tool promises increased skin density and visibly firmer, younger-looking skin. The LED masks are mainly used for:

  • Improvement in skin texture
  • Firmer facial contours
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Accelerated regeneration of the skin with scars
  • As an acne treatment
  • For lightening skin discolouration

The color of the light can be adjusted using the different treatment modes. Depending on the depth of penetration, there are various therapeutic applications. The most used colors in light therapy are red and blue:

Red light

At 550-640 nm, red light penetrates deeper into the skin than blue light and promotes microcirculation in the fine skin vessels and collagen regeneration. Due to the increased blood circulation, a gentle detox effect is achieved, which contributes to a general regeneration of the skin tissue. As an anti-aging booster, red light is suitable for use with fine lines and wrinkles.

Blue light

The color blue only works on the surface of the skin and thus has the lowest penetration depth. The blue light waves have an anti-inflammatory effect and can soothe reddened skin. Ideal for blemishes or to combat acne on oily skin.

yellow light

Yellow light wavelengths support skin hydration and help improve elasticity. It is also said to help reduce pigment and age spots.

violet light

Violet light is a combination of red and blue light and combines the advantages of both. It is used for inflammation and to reduce fine lines and acne scars.

Which led mask is suitable for home use?

What should be considered when choosing a product for an LED mask is the quality of the light. So how exactly the color spectrum is bundled.

For a comfortable fit, you should also take a look at the materials.

There are LED masks that are made of soft, flexible and natural silicone material, which makes them much more comfortable to wear compared to hard, rigid plastic masks and guarantees comfortable use even with regular use.

How is the LED mask applied?

Before treatment with the LED mask, the face should be gently cleaned and then a serum applied. Due to the improved oxygen supply to the tissue and the blood circulation, the absorption of skin care is improved and a dual effect is achieved.

At least 3-5 applications per week over a period of 4-8 weeks should be enough to achieve visible effects. The positive thing about LED masks is their ease of use and the manageable time required. Many beauty fanatics use them for a personal break and as a preventive anti-aging measure, for beautiful skin that is worth it.
