WHAT DOES LED MEAN?
LED is short for Light Emitting Diode. Therapeutic light energy is emitted to the skin cells where it is changed into ATP or adenosine triphosphate. This is the ingredient that enables the cells to function properly. Fibroblast cells are found in the dermis layer of the skin and they produce elastin and collagen – important proteins that keep the skin strong and elastic. This therapy provides these fibroblast cells additional energy to produce elastin and collagen and improve the skin’s appearance and make it youthful-looking again.
WHAT SKIN CONDITIONS CAN LED MASKS ADDRESS?
LED Masks can help with different skin concerns and problems such as:
- Mild to moderate acne
- Age and sunspots
- Fine lines and wrinkles.
- Rough spots on the skin
LED Mask therapy can’t help reduce blackheads, whiteheads and acne cysts.
WHAT DOES EACH COLOR OF LED MASKS TARGET?
RED LIGHT LED MASK
increases blood circulation and triggers the production of collagen. It is great for patients who want to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. This LED mask therapy is effective in reducing aging signs that appear because of over-exposure to the sun for example. It also reduces inflammation.
This mask emits Near Infrared light (830nm)and red light (630nm).
BLUE LIGHT LED MASK
addresses bacteria that can cause acne. With this therapy, the patients can reduce the chances of future breakouts. Blue light targets pore and hair follicles and eliminates the bacteria in them. This light actually stops the metabolism of the bacteria and destroys them. This therapy is more effective than topical treatments because it destroys the bacteria found in the skin before it attacks the oil glands and causes inflammation and redness. Topical products just reduce the inflammation and bacteria on the top layer of the skin. Blue light can also address overactive sebaceous glands.

Every LED mask emits different wavelengths that correlate with the visible colors. Every color has different depths of skin penetration.
Blue light penetrates the surface layer of the skin, while Near Infrared light penetrates to the deepest levels of the skin. Yellow light penetrates deeper than the blue light, while the red light penetrates deeper than the yellow.
BENEFITS OF LED MASK THERAPY
LED mask therapy can benefit the patient’s skin on more than one level. Regarding cellular benefits, the therapy improves blood circulation, increases energy, improves the transfer of nutrients, lowers inflammation and helps speed up the excretion of free radicals and harmful ingredients.
There are also visible benefits such as increased collagen production, firming the layer of elastin, improvement of scars, blemishes and hyper-pigmentation and reduction of the pore size.
LED mask therapy improves dull and aging skin, it reduces wrinkles, folds and fine lines. It also increases the moisture of the skin and helps to return the skin’s radiance. It is beneficial for healing of the wounds and improves skin tone and texture. Patients who have problems with acne can see improvement after this treatment because the treatment triggers the body’s own healing processes and also destroys the acne-causing bacteria.
The treatment is painless and doesn’t require any downtime. It is calming and refreshing. The patient doesn’t have to take time off work or avoid social gatherings. On the contrary, this therapy can be performed before a special occasion, like a wedding for example.
This treatment can be safely combined with other aesthetic treatments or it can be used as a stand-alone procedure.
