If you're already enjoying the benefits of regular LED light therapy at home with your own device, you'll understand the desire to use it everyday.
While LED light devices are generally safe, it's important to remember that, like any treatment, excessive usage can potentially have adverse effects. As an example, even the simple ice roller tool can irritate sensitive skin when used regularly.
Are there any risks associated with daily exposure of your skin to LED light? Learn more about LED light therapy and the possible risks of overdoing this treatment.
1. What is LED light therapy?
LED light therapy utilizes the power of light energy emitted from LED bulbs to effectively address a range of skin concerns, including acne, wrinkles, inflammation, and sensitive skin. This therapeutic method involves the use of UV-free, non-thermal LED bulbs that emit specific wavelengths of light, penetrating the skin to deliver targeted benefits.
Thanks to its cult following, LED light therapy has become more well-known in recent years as a promising skin treatment available at home in the form of masks and other types of handheld devices.
There are LED light masks that offer a variety of wavelengths. Check out the Project E Beauty Photon Skin Rejuvenation Face & Neck Mask equipped with seven different LED colors plus a dedicated panel for the often-neglected neck area. To boost your anti-aging routine, try this beauty tool also powered by light energy from the sun: the VORA microcurrent facial roller that helps tighten and tone skin.
2. Is LED Light Therapy Safe?
LED light therapy is a highly safe and effective treatment option. Unlike other forms of light therapy, LED devices utilize UV-free and non-heating bulbs that pose no risk of damaging the skin's surface. In fact, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology provides further evidence of the excellent safety profile of LED phototherapy.
As for eye safety, all types of bright lights may cause eye discomfort. The high intensity bulbs in your device may be too much for your eyes, so don’t forget to check for built-in protective goggles or purchase a pair separately.
One of the key advantages of LED light therapy is its minimal downtime. Users can undergo treatment without any significant disruption to their daily routines. Moreover, the said study confirms the remarkable effectiveness of LED phototherapy devices in addressing mild to moderate acne and promoting wound healing.
3. How Often Should You Use LED Light Therapy At Home?
Can you use your mask daily? The answer is yes! LED light therapy devices use UV-free and nonthermal LED bulbs to treat skin - not damage it. In fact, red light therapy and infrared therapy are often recommended as routine treatments for conditions such as chronic pain. It’s important to take note that you should be using eye protectors if you want to do it daily.
For those who are new to LED light therapy, it is recommended to have up to four 10-minute sessions per week. As you start noticing favorable results, you can reduce the frequency to twice a week, but with longer sessions of up to 15 minutes each. The LED bulbs used in this therapy provide pure light energy, making it unnecessary to increase the usage for better results.
For best results, you can apply a hydrating serum like the Project E Beauty Hyaluronic Acid Serum, after every treatment.
4. How To Track Your Progress?
Because LED light therapy doesn't produce immediate results, consistency is key. Stick to your plan and the proper use of your device to get the best results.
What is the best and easiest way to track your progress? Take before-and-after photos and even videos. When taking these progress photos and videos, make sure to use the same angles and lighting to make it easy for you to compare and track any changes in your complexion. Record yourself weekly and be surprised by significant improvements.
Including your LED light therapy mask in your skin regimen is the best way to use your device. The mask is often complementary to skincare products and other devices such as the anti-aging derma roller.
