Practiced in dermatological centers and beauty institutes, LED masks are now making their appearance in our bathroom. The question on everyone's mind, does it work?
Also called Phototherapy or Photomodulation, these LED masks have been the talk of the town in recent years. Jessica Alba, Kourtney Kardashian or Victoria Beckham regularly post their sessions on social networks.
What is it exactly?
LED stands for light emitting diode. They work by emitting light (cold and UV-free) in different wavelengths that can penetrate up to 920 nanometers into your skin.
Non-thermal LED triggers your cells' natural cellular processes to accelerate skin repair. It is recommended for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflamed skin, wound healing and scars, and for anyone seeking to restore skin radiance.
Quels sont les What are the benefits?
During the session, the device sends light waves into the skin to trigger natural reactions. Depending on the light, your skin will react differently. If the light is red, your skin reacts by building and reinforcing the production of collagen, thus reducing skin inflammation. In the case of blue light, the wavelengths stimulate the production of oxygen radicals that kill the P. bacteria responsible for acne, all without damaging the skin. Finally, the amber color reduces hyperpigmentation caused by the sun's UV rays or signs of skin aging.
Where do I do my sessions?
Are home sessions as effective?
Finally, the intensity of the LEDs plays an important role in the expected results, your investment that will bring you results in the long term. You will sometimes find less expensive masks that are very useful either to discover light therapy or to maintain results following dermatology practices.
Do I need it?
No matter what your skin issues, breakouts or signs of aging, light therapy can help.
If you are someone who loves to test and try new things in beauty, suffer from acne or other skin problems LEDs are a great option to add to your beauty rituals.
