Continue reading for some top tips on how to take care of your LED light therapy device such as the Project E Beauty LED Light Therapy Mask made of soft and comfortable silicone material.
How Does Your LED Light Therapy Device Work?
LED light treatment has been around for decades. 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 to accelerate wound healing. The gold-standard in skin treatments has recently been more widely available to more consumers through portable at-home devices such masks.
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.
LED light therapy works deep in the skin’s layers to target cellular level transformation and rejuvenation. A basic LED light therapy appliance is fitted with high-intensity yet non-damaging LED bulbs that emit light energy to penetrate the skin. Depending on the wavelength, the light energy emitted comes in various colors with corresponding skin benefits.
The Skin Rejuvenation Photon Mask by Project E Beauty lets you enjoy the benefits of having 7 different LED light colors in one portable device.
Is LED red light therapy safe? Phototherapy that utilizes LEDs poses an excellent safety profile. The technology may seem complicated at first, but it really doesn’t matter as most of these devices are user-friendly and quite convenient. Simply turn the device on, sit back, and relax while effortlessly transforming your skin into its best version.
How To Properly Use Your LED Light Therapy Device?
Prior to your big purchase, you may already have basic knowledge of how your device works. All that’s left to do is to study the included user manual carefully to help you understand the device better.
Important stuff like the correct power supply and charging instructions should be kept in mind. The FAQs section is typically printed on the final page of the manual or made available on the brand's website for a quick study. Once you've finished reading, save the manual for later use; you never know when you'll need it again.
Now, since your device involves the use of bulbs, a quick lighting check can be very helpful. You may notice a few bulbs that are not lit, which is especially true of LED light therapy devices with infrared features. The near-infrared (NIR) wavelength is invisible to the human eye and there's nothing to worry about if the other LEDs are working.
You may ask: how often should I use LED light therapy at home? How often should you use LED light masks? Regardless of brand, experts recommend doing treatments four times a week starting with 10-minute sessions. Once favorable results start to appear, treatments can be cut down to twice a week with longer sessions lasting up to 15 minutes each.
How To Clean Your LED Light Therapy Device?
Once done, most devices only require simple disinfection and cleaning. Use a soft cloth dipped in water or alcohol to wipe the surface of your device, especially the ones that come into direct contact with skin. Make sure that the device is turned off before doing this, although many devices already come with auto-shut-off features.
Remember to not use abrasive materials when wiping your device to avoid scratches and any type of damage. Do not submerge your electrical device in water. Again, follow the manufacturer instructions especially when handling your device.
Did you know that the neck area is one of the most neglected body parts when it comes to skin aging? The Project E Beauty Photon Skin Rejuvenation Face & Neck Mask comes with an additional neck panel equipped with 40 LED bulbs to help you get rid of that unsightly turkey neck.
How To Store Your LED Light Therapy Device?
Storing your cleaned and disinfected device in its own box is a practical thing to do. This keeps the gadget out of the way and protects it from dust in between uses. Make sure that the box is placed in a cool and dry location without direct sunlight or a source of heat to avoid damaging the materials while in storage.
Don’t forget to also take care of the all-important power supply cord, charging cable, or whichever applies. Unplug when not in use and secure the cables with twist ties instead of winding them too tightly around the power adapter. Keep these handy with your other gadget accessories, or store them in the same box as the device.
The ultra-light Project E Beauty Lumamask LED Light Therapy is fully wireless with a comfortable face-hugging design that makes it the ideal device to use for relaxing self-care moments.
