LED Mask Therapy for Skin Rejuvenation
For as long as I have lived and from everything that I have read, people have done everything to preserve the youthful appearance and rejuvenate their facial skin since the beginning of time. The skincare industry boasts yearly revenue globally of over $135 million. People are investing in themselves, and the market for skin rejuvenation product is wide-ranging and growing.
The market includes using natural items like apricots and papaya, which contain Vitamins A, C., lycopene, and are rich in alpha-hydroxy acids, which rejuvenate skin. There are also orange peels and watermelon and cucumber packs that cleanse and exfoliate the skin; they also fight off aging signs. A google search of natural face masks will surely yield food items like yogurt, oatmeal, and tomatoes.
Estheticians and beauty gurus also cite diet, drinking lots of water, getting plenty of sleep, and working out as things that will not only improve any skin concerns but will also take your confidence to levels that measure off the charts. That is why many have turned to LED for skin rejuvenation, and those numbers will continue to grow.
What is a LED Mask?
LED masks are light therapy masks that were once only available in a dermatologist’s office but are now available for use at home as well. The light is a way of exposing skin to different levels of specific wavelengths that take care of various skin issues. The light helps create collagen faster and thus creates fresh skin that looks brighter than before. Doctors claim that it repairs cell damage, improves facial texture, reduces fine lines, and kills bacteria.
Although that all sounds dramatic, masks do not make skin problems disappear overnight; noticeable difference takes time. However, when used with serums or essences, a mask can make a difference in how the skin looks and feels, so they are so popular. Plus, there is no downtime when getting treatment with the mask. A fun fact about Masks – NASA created them for plant growth experiments in space!
The way the mask works is by color, which provides light that dictates wavelengths. The different lights have different levels and other effects on the skin tissue. Meaning, the longer the wavelength, the deeper the penetration into the facial tissue. Some masks go as low as the neck and decolletage for rejuvenating that skin also.
As stated above, LED lights can solve an array of skin issues. Those include but are not limited to:
- Reduces acne scarring and inflammation, and acne lesions.
- Heal wounds by increasing cell growth and thus decrease wound size.
- Rejuvenation for a photo by breaking down grooves in the skin, including fine lines. Mask increases the speed of collagen production.
- Faster healing of acne by killing bacteria.
- Cures inflammation and the redness caused by inflammation.
- Reduces post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Scheduling an appointment for mask therapy
Scheduling an appointment with a dermatologist or licensed esthetician for mask therapy is quick and easy. You will get a skin assessment and treatment in 30 to 45 minutes. Maintenance treatments should be done monthly to maintain results. Since there is no downtime, you go back to your everyday life immediately.
Purchasing a mask for home treatments
If you are ready to take the plunge and purchase a mask for home rejuvenation treatment, you want to look for several features. The first thing you want is a mask that either has a light setting and covers all colors (wavelengths) or one focused on your skin needs (based on color)
The outer shell is important because it will determine its comfort level when you are wearing it. A softshell made of flexible silicone is ideal. Portability is also excellent for traveling.
If you want your neck and decolletage area covered, make sure the mask is long enough to cover that area comfortably as well.
If you like a spa type experience and want vibrations, de-puffing cool settings, and more, be sure to check out brands that combine all those features.
Mask can be purchased at many beauty supply distributors, including Aestheticbureau.

Regardless of having LED therapy done at a professional office or using an at-home LED therapy treatment, you can look for your skin to show the following signs of improvement from the mask.
