Since scientific research revealed the many benefits of light therapy, skin treatments need no longer rely solely on OTC or prescription products. Although many may seek therapy from a licensed dermatologist or spa specialist, a number of consumer products provide cost-effective means of treating skin at home. Hand-held wands and light panels are a couple of options. However, light therapy masks offer a hands-free alternative. The masks are affordable and are designed to resolve a variety of skin conditions.
LED Light Therapy Masks Buying Guide
When researching LED light therapy devices, you will see one of more of these “types” of lights:
Red + Infrared Light – This type of light will go the deepest into your skin. It will help to address the clarity and tone of your skin as well as the deeper bone and muscle. Great for elastin and collagen production, this type of light helps to heal skin with wounds and scars.
Amber Light – The amber light will penetrate your skin less and is better for those that have problems with skin pigmentation from things like sun damage.
Blue Light – The blue light is clinically proven to stop bacteria that cause acne, and when it is combined with red light therapy, it will also diminish acne scars and help speed up the healing process of your skin.
This light combination does four important things. First, the red light fades dark spots and enhances your skin’s natural glow. Then, the infrared light penetrates deep into the dermis to boost the production of collagen and elastin. This should result in plumper, bouncier, smoother skin. And for your absolute convenience, all of this happens in 10-minute sessions of wearing the LED facial mask.
Sound too good to be true? We thought so, too. But according to the literature, 96% of women who tested the mask saw a dramatic improvement in 30 days. After trying it myself for just half that time, I have to agree with them. This skinnovation is nothing short of revolutionary. I saw The Glow with my own two eyes!
