What are LED Mask treatments?

With technological interventions in our day to day life, skincare is not deprived of the use of the latest technology to give you the desired healthy glow. One of the most popular techniques being used to rejuvenate the skin these days is the phototherapy or the LED masks.

These Light Emitting Diodes emit lights of multiple wavelengths that helps target skin issues like acne, eczema, psoriasis, aging, sunburns, inflammation, and wound healing.

These masks are not available in unicolor only in fact; there are three phototherapy options available at the moment which include yellow light phototherapy, red light phototherapy, and blue light phototherapy. Both these have varying advantages due to different emitted frequencies of the lights by the diodes. The details of both these are discussed below:

Red light phototherapy:

Red LED masks are specifically used for the superficial layer of the skin. When the light is directed towards the epidermis, it boosts the production of collagen in the skin, which ultimately fixes skin issues such as laugh lines, wrinkles and fights the sagging skin due to aging. Moreover, red light phototherapy is known to potentially speed up the healing of wounds and reduce skin inflammation as well.

Blue light phototherapy:

Blue light phototherapy is not only known for its promising results in cosmetology, but it is popular for its therapeutic dermatological uses in the medical field too. Blue light phototherapy is used by medical professionals to treat third-degree burns as well as for their bactericidal properties. In cosmetology, blue LED masks can potentially improve your skin tone as well as texture. They not only fight acne by killing bacteria on the skin surface, but they also reduce the production of oil by the sebaceous glands that also helps in the prevention of acne. Moreover, it also dramatically reduces inflammation, as well.

Yellow light phototherapy:

Yellow light phototherapy is known for its treatment of various skin conditions. It not only soothes the skin and improves the texture by boosting the production of elastin and collagen, but yellow LED masks can also reduce redness and irritation on the skin. Moreover, yellow light LED masks are used to treat sunburns as well as rosacea too.

Side effects:

There are no potential side effects known to be associated with the LED masks. They are considered absolutely safe, pain-free, and efficient in skin rejuvenation. However, some people are at the risk of experiencing mild side effects which are also very short-lived. The adverse reactions that might occur include inflammation, tenderness on the skin, mil rashes or redness. However, these go away within no time, and the glow achieved remains.

LED masks are readily available to be used at homes as well. They are affordable and offer treatments for common skin problems efficiently. Therefore, most of the people can use the one that best fits their skin needs and get a thousand watts skin glow they always wanted to achieve.
