Do LED Face Masks Work?

Do LED Face Masks Work?

We are starting to see LED face masks everywhere, and especially in the home beauty arena. They do have a high price tag, but they also have some particularly good beauty benefits, and so the cost per use can be quite low. At Nakin we do not sell LED face masks and instead focus all of our work on natural beauty and our award winning anti-ageing skincare. However, we are always interested in things that can help make our skin look great, and so we investigated just how good they are. We have to say that it seems LED face masks do work in improving skin, and this is judging by expert reports and user reviews. Read on to find out how they work and help to improve skin.

LED face masks emit low-level light therapy (LLLT) that penetrates into the skin cells to stimulate collagen production and cell turnover. Collagen is a key structural protein that helps keep our skin looking plump and smooth, so increasing its production can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also help to improve cell turnover, the process by which our skin sheds dead cells and replaces them with new ones. As we age, this process slows down, leading to a build-up of dull, lifeless skin cells on the surface of our complexion. By increasing cell turnover, LED face masks can help brighten the skin and give it a more radiant appearance.

LED face masks use a spectrum of light wavelengths that infiltrate the skin to activate changes at a molecular level. The light spectrums have different colours which then target specific skin concerns. The red light works to increase circulation and stimulates collagen, which is something that we lose as we age. So, it is great for anyone looking for an anti-ageing boost to tone skin and lessen the appearance of lines plus wrinkles. Blue light works on bacteria, so it is good for congested skin and acne. The red and blue LED light masks are the most common, but there are other options such as yellow to combat redness and green to target pigmentation. The LED face masks seem to have proven benefits, which include the below:

  • Increase collagen production for a more youthful appearance
  • Provide a reduction in lines and wrinkles
  • Clear skin and minimise breakouts
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Brighten the complexion

We hope that you found our feature helpful looking at whether LED face masks work. There is no doubt that LED face masks have become a popular skincare treatment, with many people turning to them in an effort to achieve brighter, more youthful-looking skin.  When we took a closer look at how LED face masks work and what evidence there is that they do work, it seems that they do have lots of benefits and can be worth the time and money involved in the use and purchase. Although it seems that LED face mask do work, we have not fully looked into their safety and recommend thoroughly researching them before purchasing and using one.
