Regular treatment with an LED mask also helps strengthen the skin. It is thus more resistant to external aggressions. Discover the results that an LED facial mask can offer you , as well as the opinions of dermatologists.

How does light therapy skin treatment work?

The discovery of the beneficial effects of light therapy on many conditions is not recent. The use of light in the field of health began in the 19th century.

Discovery of the beneficial effects of light therapy

Natural light has been used for many years in the treatment of dermatological, pediatric and even ophthalmological problems. However, it was NASA research in the 1980s that revolutionized the use of LEDs for skin repair . Originally, the American space agency developed this technology to promote skin repair for astronauts sent into space.

The use of light therapy in skin care

Little by little, scientific studies on the effects of LEDs on the skin are increasing. Researchers have found that LEDs do more than just repair the epidermis. Depending on their colors, they have an action on multiple skin processes . They thus demonstrate their effectiveness in the treatment of certain skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis or even rosacea. Therefore, light therapy using LED light is beginning to be used in the aesthetic treatment of the skin.

The colors of the visible light spectrum used in phototherapy

The visible light spectrum used in aesthetics has seven colors. Each color has specific wavelengths and benefits. Let’s decipher the benefits of the three colors most commonly used in the beauty sector.

Red light helps fight premature skin aging

Red light is surely the most studied to date. The length of its waves, calculated in nanometers, oscillates between 620 and 700 nm. Red light is generally safe, because it is far from ultraviolet rays produced by the sun (between 100 and 400 nanometers). This color is the one that penetrates the deepest into the skin (after infrared). Red LEDs are beneficial for many skin problems. They act on the signs of aging such as wrinkles and spots and promote the production of collagen and elastin.

Infrared LEDs stimulate collagen production and healing

Infrared, whose wavelength is between 780 and 1000 nanometers, acts on skin repair processes. Often combined with red LEDs, infrared increases its effect tenfold. Thus, red light and infrared light act in synergy to stimulate cell renewal and collagen production. Infrared also demonstrates beneficial results on the appearance of scars and redness of the skin.

Is blue LED light, close to UV, safe for the skin?

Studies have also been carried out on the benefits of blue light. With a short wavelength, blue light acts on the surface. It produces free radicals, which are particularly effective in fighting bacteria and blemishes caused by acne. However, professional opinions on these LEDs are not unanimous. Their wavelengths, between 400 and 495 nanometers, remain close to UV, responsible for skin damage. Some brands prefer not to introduce blue light into their care products, in order to avoid possible changes to the skin.

The benefits of LED masks for the face and the opinion of dermatologists

As we have seen, the different colors of the light spectrum have specific effects on many skin problems. Let's discover in more detail the benefits of each color and the opinions of skin experts on the subject.

The effects of red light on the skin

Red light penetrates deep into the skin and acts on various skin processes. It demonstrates its effectiveness in the fight against premature aging , acne, redness and the overall appearance of the skin.

Red light helps with skin repair and fights signs of aging

Red light has been widely studied for its beneficial effects on the skin. Dermatologists commonly recommend red LED light for its anti-aging and restorative properties . A specific wavelength of 633 nm is ideal to achieve maximum benefits. Scientific studies confirm these observations. A study published in the Journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery reveals that red LED light can accelerate cell turnover and wound healing.

The dermatologist's opinion on the benefits of red light for the skin

According to renowned dermatologist Sandra Lee, "Red LED light is the most universally beneficial. It penetrates deeper into the skin than other colors. Red LEDs stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen. This can improve skin tone, elasticity and firmness of the skin. Red light also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and accelerates the healing of wounds.

The properties of infrared LED light devices

Infrared light is usually combined with red LEDs to increase their effects on the skin. Near-infrared light specifically acts on healing and reduces inflammation of the skin .

LED masks with infrared strengthen the skin

Near-infrared light is another wavelength popular in dermatology. Invisible to the naked eye, it penetrates even deeper into the skin than red light. Devices with a wavelength of 830 nm are particularly effective. Research in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology demonstrates that near-infrared light can reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen production, and treat skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

The dermatologist's opinion on the results that infrared LED devices can provide

According to Patricia Wexler, a New York dermatologist, "Near-infrared light is exceptional for its ability to penetrate deep into skin tissue. It stimulates cell regeneration. Thus, near-infrared light can help relieve inflammation, reduce spots and improve blood circulation. It can contribute to healthier, brighter skin."

How to enjoy the effects of the LED face mask at home?

To take advantage of the effects of light therapy yourself, treat yourself to an LED face mask. High-quality and affordable home appliances are available on the beauty market.

Choose a premium LED face mask

Do you find it difficult to select the ideal light therapy device ? Indeed, the choice is vast. A few things can tell you if your LED face mask is qualitative. First of all, turn to recognized brands that have benn tried and tested. The mask must have a sufficient number of LEDs to treat the entire face and neck (130 LEDs minimum). Finally, the materials used must be of superior quality, even medical grade, in order to avoid any risk of allergies.

Respect the frequency of use of the LED mask to obtain visible results

To get the best results from your LED face mask, you need to be consistent. The Nooãnce brand recommends using its light therapy device three to five times a week. With the “essential” LED mask, each session is planned to last 10 minutes. Nooãnce's professional device can be used three times a week.
