The Anti-Aging Red Light

The Anti-Acne Blue Light

Red light is known for its collagen-boosting and healing powers. For cosmetic use, this wavelength penetrates roughly 8 to 10 mm below the skin’s surface, stimulating the production of collagen. This helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and diminish other signs of aging.

Give your acne-prone skin a break with healing blue light that reaches down to the follicles and pores to destroy acne-forming bacteria. This type of light may also help in reducing the activity of oil glands to prevent further acne formation. Blue light soothes and has a calming effect on inflamed and irritated skin.


How Often Should You Use An LED Light Mask?

For beginners, treatments using a LED light therapy mask can be done up to four times a week starting with 10-minute sessions. Once favorable results start appearing, reduce treatments to twice a week - you may do longer sessions for up to 15 minutes each. LED bulbs provide pure light energy and are very powerful so there is no need to amp up usage to achieve better results.
