Product: LED Photon Therapy Red Blue Green Light Treatment Mask
By: Angel Kiss
Place to Purchase: Amazon
This is one of the favorite products of all time, it is a great product as an easy treatment for acne scars. This mask is a plastic mask with colored LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes, for those curious) inside.
There has been some testing with different colored lights and their effect on the skin and the results were as followed:
Red Light (630 nm): Has shown to reduce wrinkles, make the skin smoother, help blood circulation, help in the creation of collagen and reduce the size of pores.
Blue Light (415 nm): Has shown to kill bacteria (reducing acne), balance skin tone and relax the skin.
Green (525 nm): Has shown to improve sensitive skin and cure surface wounds.
There are some other colors which have other added benefits and if you are curious about the effectiveness of light treatment.
Check out this study that talks about all the different effects light has on the skin at different wavelengths, but if you don’t want to read too much just know they concluded that blue and red light have been proven successful to work on acne and scars, so here you have a product with an actual scientific backing.
Our main point should be the Red LED which helps collagen production and reduce the size of pores and of course the Blue LED which helps kill bacteria thus helping in the treatment of Acne, making this mask a great Acne and Scar treatment.
You might be thinking…
So Why This Product?
The reason this particular brand was picked was because the mask had the most LEDs (more light), the company is trusted and has many reviews in Amazon.
There were a few other masks out there that were designed, so they would stop working after a certain amount of uses (that’s a no, no)
It’s simple, with this mask you are killing two birds with one stone, you have a great source for treating acne scars as well as treating acne (though it is still recommended you continue to put on your Acne products).
The mask covers your entire face leaving an opening for your eyes, protecting them from the light source. It comes with a band so you can wear the mask and browse the internet (Hopefully browsing on Beautifulclearskin.org, wink, wink).
The mask has different levels of power for the light strength as well as a timer, so you know exactly how long you are wearing it and at what power output.
Pricing; getting consistent light therapy at a spa will add up the cost, here you have something cost-efficient that you can use whenever you want.
Ease of use; this product requires little input from you other than cleaning and putting it away. No complicated setup or mess.
Some Tips and Tricks?
Of course! Do note that it is recommended for you to wear the mask only about 20 minutes and 3 to 4 times a week.
There is no research suggesting any negative side effects of the LED therapy, but everything in moderation is better. This means you have 20 minutes to play with the settings, so try these settings according to your situation.
Acne + Scars: Use in the highest power 10 minutes Blue then 10 minutes Red.
Some Acne + Many Scars: Use the highest power 5 minutes Blue then 15 minutes Red.
Acne or Scar only: Use the highest setting 20 minutes Red for scars or 20 minutes Blue for Acne.
If you are using both colors in one sitting always start with Blue, I’ve noticed that Blue kills bacteria in the pores and Red would later smooth the skin out and reduce the size of the pores.
Use the mask 3 to 4 times a week preferably at night, so as soon as you are done you can go to bed and let your skin rest.
Use an alcohol wipe or wet wipe to clean the inside of the mask after each use, you don’t want sweat or bacteria from the last time you used it to get stuck in there.
Also consider washing your face before using the mask to remove any dead skin cells or any acne product you used, that way the light will shine on a clean skin surface.
Some negative reviews come from people only using it from time to time for a few weeks and seeing no results.
Acne and scar healing is not an overnight success, it takes time and patience and giving up because you are not seeing results right away is unfair to the product and to you. Just like any product for the skin use it consistently and for a few months before deciding if it’s not working for you.
Another important thing to consider is; there have been some small research that suggest the Red light can make your thyroids act up, while it is not proven better safe than sorry, I usually wrap a towel around my neck and collar bone, so there is no light hitting my thyroid area.
While wearing the mask with the Red light, doing villains’ movie quotes make you look and sound pretty cool.
