What is LED light therapy?
Light emitting diode (LED) therapy was originally used to help treat wounds and aid healing, and has since been repurposed in the beauty space as a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that uses light at different wavelengths to trigger the skin's renewal process at a cellular level. NHS GP and the founder of The Facebible Clinic, Dr Raj Arora, says, 'LED wavelengths enter the skin’s layers and stimulate the skin’s natural healing mechanisms. A well-known popular led light therapy is red light. This uses wavelengths to help treat wrinkles and also skin conditions like psoriasis. Blue light therapy has also proved a popular way to treat acne.'
Red light waves have been proven to help accelerate the production of new collagen, soothe redness, heal the skin, and even improve skin tone. It is also known to boost blood circulation by bringing oxygen and nutrients to cells.
How do LED face masks work and how do they benefit the skin?
LED face masks emit light at different wavelengths to address specific skin concerns. 'As light wavelengths increase so do the depth of penetration. Red light therapy can be emitted from the mask to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, encourage collagen production and can help reduce inflammation. LED light therapy can also be used to kill acne causing bacteria, thus reducing breakouts and hyperpigmentation. LED therapy is also used to help treat skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea. Most masks emit either one wavelength or a range of wavelengths so that treatments can be programmed to address different skin concerns,' Dr Arora points out.
Many professionals claim that regular use of an LED face mask helps to firm skin too.
How does the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Face Mask work?
This mask is regarded as a medical grade tool that has been FDA-Cleared and clinically proven to deliver transformative results to the skin. A clever combination of 132 LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs, 66 red (633nm) and 66 near-infrared (830nm) wavelengths, and patented Pillow Technology™ ensures that the entire skin surface receives coverage with wavelengths reaching up to 4cm of skin tissue to stimulate cells from beneath the surface, in the way professional salon machines would.
The 132 LED bulbs that emit the clinically proven wavelengths CurrentBody's tools are famed for is supported by patented Pillow Technology™ and flexible silicone, which together enhances the distribution and efficacy of high quality LED wavelengths and ensures even coverage on the skin’s surface that leaves little chance for areas to go untreated.
How to use CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Face Mask
First run a sensitivity or patch test. Then, once you know your skin reacts well to the light, cleanse and dry your face, and apply a few drops of a calming serum like CurrentBody Skin Green Tea Serum, £45. Fix the mask into place and adjust the strap around your head. Now for the best part, sit back and relax for 10 minutes as the mask works its magic. Once complete clean your mask and stow away safely. For best results use three to five times a week.
