What is LED MASK THERAPY TREATMENT

LED mask therapy represents an effective anti-aging treatment. It is performed by exposing the skin to various light wavelengths which have various effects on the skin. Depending on the color, LED masks reduce wrinkles and fine lines, reduce the size of the pores and make the skin tone more even. They trigger the production of collagen and elastin and reduce skin inflammations. They are also effective in eliminating bacteria that cause acne.

This treatment is safe for all skin types even sensitive ones. It can be used for all skin colors because it doesn’t emitultraviolet light and therefore doesn’t burn or damage the surface of the skin. The light used in this treatment is regenerative and healing.

The therapy provides smoother, clearer, more radiant and healthier skin.

LED light masks emit LED light while the patients wear them over their faces.

Every mask emits a different spectrum of wavelength that travels deep into the skin and stimulates molecular changes.

How It Works

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
  • Rosacea
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Age and sunspots
  • Wounds
  • Fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Psoriasis
  • 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.

RED and BLUE LED MASKS can safely be combined to address different skin concerns, especially problems with acne.

YELLOW LIGHT LED MASK

helps to reduce the redness on the face because it boosts the dermal blood circulation. It helps to detoxify the facial skin. It can be used as a stand-alone procedure to make the skin more radiant and healthier. It is effective in rejuvenating the skin but it can also speedup the healing of wounds.  

This mask emits Near Infrared Light (830nm)and Yellow Light (580nm)

GREEN LIGHT LED MASK

reduces pigmentation. It has a brightening effect. It is effective in treating dilated capillaries, under-eye circles, sunspots and saggy skin around the eyes. Once it is absorbed into the skin it has a soothing effect that helps reduce skin inflammations. It brightens the hyper-pigmentation spots and improves the skin complexion.

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.

When used regularly, LED mask therapy can offer long-lasting results.

Patients can improve their skin concerns effectively because the therapy precisely targets problematic areas. This way the results can be achieved easily and quickly.

Patients should definitely include LED Mask therapy in their regular skincare routine because it will bring them more than one benefit.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS

  • WHO SHOULD AVOID LED MASK THERAPY?

    Even though LED mask therapy is very safe, it isn’t suitable for everybody, especially for patients who take medications that make their skin more sensitive to the sun or have a history of some skin conditions like eye illnesses.

  • WHAT DOES LED MASK THERAPY INCLUDE?

    When the patient arrives at Lucia Clinic, first he/she has a consultation with Lucia’s skin therapist. The therapist examines the patient’s skin and determines which skin conditions the patient has. Next, the therapist determines which LED Mask therapy would be the most suitable and creates a customized treatment plan that includes the number of treatment sessions. The therapist talks to the patients about previous medical history and considers the patient’s expectations from the treatment.

    Before the LED Mask therapy, the skin therapist cleans the patient’s skin to remove makeup, perfumes, lotions and other products that the patient uses on a daily basis. These products can lower the effectiveness of LED Mask therapy, so it is important to remove them. Also, products like retinol or AHAs can produce an unwanted reaction like irritation after the LED mask therapy.

    The patient can get some other treatment like a facial before the LED therapy if necessary. Exfoliating and cleansing the patient’s face is beneficial prior to this therapy because they remove dead skin cells, dirt, oil and other impurities. This way the therapy will be more effective because the light will penetrate deeper into the skin.

    Next, the patient is given safety goggles to protect the eyes from the bright light. Then the treatment can start.

    The patient lies on his/her back and the skin therapist places the LED Mask device above his/her face. The patient should lies till during the treatment which generally lasts for 20 minutes.
