These LED Light Therapy face masks are worth every penny – and with one priced at $99, there is one for every budget.
Who could have predicted the future of skincare, would have been sci-fi looking LED face masks for at-home facial treatments?
LED light therapy masks also beloved by celebrities with some of the best skin around, including Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba, and Kate Hudson.
Once reserved for the practiced hands of aestheticians and beauty therapists, skilled in the art of LED Light Therapy for skin treatment, in 2022, these luxury face masks are now doable at home. And there’s a mask for almost any budget.
LED light therapy WAS developed from NASA technology, and then adopted by the skincare industry.
Thanks to its ability to heal wounds and tame inflammation, it started becoming a go-trend of at home facial treatments when the world went into lockdown back in 2021.
Although at-home LED therapy devices are less powerful than the treatments you’d get at a dermatologist’s or beauty clinic, that doesn’t mean you can’t get visible results from their use.
It just means it takes more time, especially due to the low frequency light therapy for at-home masks, which makes them safe to use. But you also save time and a lot of cash you would spend going to a clinic.
What does LED Light therapy do and is it safe?
Blue Light frequencies have been known to HELP treat acne. Red Light has been known to stimulate collagen and help with anti-ageing. Orange Light (or amber) is used in some clinics to treat inflammation, rosacea, and redness. Green Light is believed to reduce pigmentation.
Facialists, dermatologists, beauty editors, and the American Academy of Dermatology agree: LED light treatments are safe and effective treatments for your complexion, since they don’t use UV rays.
Side note: Do be careful about using LED masks alongside certain skincare products that makes your face sensitive to light, like isotretinoin or Accutane,side effects of LED light therapy masks are very rare, but they have been reported in clinical trials.
