LED face masks – or LED light therapy masks – are the result of LED light therapy becoming mainstream. Once a “salon-only” treatment, the best LED face masks use red and near infrared LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes) to target multiple skincare concerns at once ~at home~. And they're adored by beauty editors, influencers and celebrities world-over as a result.
What are the benefits of LED face masks?
There are lots of benefits to light therapy when used regularly. LED light therapy can be used to reduce breakouts, pigmentation, rosacea symptoms, psoriasis and other side-effects of inflammation. If you don't suffer from the above complaints, LED light therapy can simply help to improve the general appearance of your skin and reduce visible signs of ageing.
And that's not all. The benefits of light therapy go well beneath the skin’s surface. In fact, LED light treatments have been applauded for improving mental health, too. Client feedback suggests that a short period of time spent under in-clinic LED lamps could dramatically boost our serotonin levels, which in turn lifts mood, spirits and reduces stress levels. Tempted? You bet.
Since the results for your skin and mind are cumulative, you need to have regular treatments to see an effect. You'll see that most of the best LED face masks come alongside recommendation of usage three-four times weekly. If you can’t afford regular LED treatments at your local salon, at-home light therapy could be the answer.
Can I use an LED face mask everyday?
Every LED face mask has a different recommended usage, but most should be used no more than five times per week for 10 minutes.
Are LED face masks safe?
Yes. Most experts agree that LED face masks are safe – since they’re non-invasive and don’t emit UV light – as long as you follow the instructions and use them for the recommended amounts of time only.
The LED used in at-home devices is much weaker than what it would be in-salon, and actually, the devices often undergo much more rigorous testing because they need to be safe enough to use without the presence of a professional.
