But is it safe to use your LED light therapy mask everyday? Find the answer to this and more below.
How does LED light therapy affect the skin?
LED light treatment has been used for a very long time. This ground-breaking technology was initially made available in a medical environment as a treatment to lessen the uncomfortable (and sometimes painful) side effects of radiation therapy and speed up wound healing. This gold-standard treatment has recently been more widely available to consumers, whether through in-clinic or at-home procedures.
What is LED light therapy?
LED light therapy is the use of UV-free, non-heating LED bulbs to treat a variety of skin conditions. The light energy that penetrates the skin activates photoreceptors which then triggers natural cellular processes such as collagen production, healing, and regeneration.
Devices for LED light treatment are fitted with LED bulbs that release light energy at various wavelengths. The many light wavelengths with corresponding skin benefits are what give most gadgets their various colors. Photoreceptors in skin cells capture light energy, which they use as fuel for biological processes - much like what photosynthesis does in plants.
Each wavelength color offers unique benefits and if you have a LED light therapy mask at home, simply pick which color suits your condition:
- Red light stimulates collagen production for anti-aging effects
- Blue light eliminates bacteria to help reduce inflammation and breakouts
- Green light brightens complexion
- Cyan relieves irritation and inflammation
- Yellow light placates redness
- Purple light improves microcirculation
- The mix of white accelerates regeneration and relaxes skin
What are the advantages of using LED light therapy at home?
What’s the best thing about LED light therapy? You can do it at the comfort of your own space (by yourself) guided by a few simple steps. In this day and age, there really is no excuse to skip the health-giving stuff. Here are more reasons why at-home LED light therapy devices - like the Skin Rejuvenation Photon Mask - are the best way to inject great skincare into your busy lifestyle.
- Less intense than in-clinic machines, great for beginners
- Generally portable and easy to bring and use anywhere
- Easy-to-follow instructions
- Skincare-routine friendly, works best with other skincare products
- Quick and hassle-free sessions
- Easy to clean and store
- Customizable treatment plan
Is LED red light therapy safe?
Regardless of wavelength (or color), LED light treatment is risk-free and has no known side effects. A study conducted in 2018 and documented in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology supports the high safety profile of LED-based phototherapy. This therapy is completely safe and efficient in treating skin issues and renewing skin when used as directed and on a regular basis.
Is LED light therapy safe for the eyes? Looking directly into any type of bright light can affect vision. If the light is too bright and bothersome, it is recommended to wear protective blackout goggles while receiving treatment. Check out the Lumamask LED Light Therapy from Project E Beauty that features a pair of integrated eye shields to ease your vision worries.
How often should you use LED light masks at home?
LED light therapy devices are generally safe and more effective when used frequently. You can even use your mask daily! If you are new to the treatment, use your device up to four times a week starting with 10-minute long sessions. Once favorable results start to appear, reduce treatments to twice a week and do longer sessions for up to 15 minutes each. LED bulbs provide pure light energy which is very potent, there is no need to increase usage to achieve better results.
The silicone-made LED light therapy mask from Project E Beauty has blue and red light functionalities and is so comfortable to wear that you'll look forward to your treatments every single time.
LED light therapy devices can be used on their own or for maximum benefits, incorporate the treatment into your daily anti-aging or anti-acne skincare routines. When used in combination with other skincare products, light therapy masks can help boost your complexion and overall health.
