Your questions about: beauty tech
After how long can I expect to see the first results with the use of the LED mask?
From the first uses, the results on the complexion and redness will already be visible. After 3 to 6 months, depending on the skin type and provided you use the mask regularly, the results improve the texture and firmness of the skin as well as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will be visible.
What is the recommended frequency of use for the LED mask?
We advise you to use the mask once a day for the first 4 weeks in a 10 minute session. Then, to maintain the results, it is preferable to use it at least 3 to 5 times a week. The device is programmed directly for a duration of 10 minutes and switches itself off at the end of the treatment.
Is the mask guaranteed?
Yes, our beauty tech products are guaranteed for two years. Please keep the invoice as proof of your purchase (date of purchase + order number).
What is the average usage time of a full charge?
A full charge allows an average use of 4 to 5 uses of 10 minutes. Attention, the battery must be fully charged before its first use (until the white diodes stop flashing on the controller).
I can't charge my mask: when I unplug it, it turns off.
Please note that the mask has no internal battery. The battery is external and is located in the "controller" (also called remote control). It is therefore not necessary to connect the mask directly to a socket but the controller. The first charge must last 4 hours (be sure to wait for the 3 diodes to stop flashing to disconnect the controller) and must be done before the first use.

How do I clean my LED mask?
You can clean your mask using a soft microfiber cotton and antiseptic lotion.
Glasses and silicone eyes hurt my eyes.
Be careful, you should never combine dark glasses and silicone eyes. They weren't meant to be used together. Either the silicone eyes are enough, or the light is still too strong and in this case we advise you to use the dark glasses alone under your mask. The accumulation of the two presses on the eyes which makes the experience unpleasant.
Can I use the mask at the same time as a photo-sensitizing treatment?
No, we do not recommend the use of LEDs during photosensitizing treatment. If you have a specific treatment in progress, you must refer to your doctor to obtain his agreement. In these situations, the advice of your doctor takes precedence.
Can I use the mask on the body?
Yes, of course (it has a beneficial effect on bruises, scars, etc.).

Was the mask made in collaboration with Cyrille Laurent and Saatiya Beauty?
The mask was developed in collaboration with the scientific research of Pibou Beauty ( https://www.instagram.com/pibou_beauty/ ) but also with the advice of Cyrille Laurent ( https://www.instagram.com/cyrille_laurentfr/ ) and Saatiya Beauty ( https://www.instagram.com/saatiya_beauty/ ).
Does the LED mask have medical properties (treating skin diseases such as rosacea for example, etc.)?
No, our LED mask is an anti-aging mask using photo-therapy technology to initially improve the radiance of the complexion. Then after 3 to 6 months, and depending on the skin type, it can act on the firmness of the skin as well as on the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some scientific studies attest to the anti-inflammatory properties of LEDS, which relieves many skin types with inflammation problems. However, our mask does not in any way replace medical treatment for a skin disease. We advise you to always take advice from your doctor or dermatologist. As a reminder, NOOANCE is positioned on anti-aging prevention only. The mask has therefore not been tested in this sense.
Is the LED mask compatible with BHA/PHA and/or Retinol?
There are no contraindications to using exfoliating acids or retinol with the LED mask. However, it is imperative to apply them after using the mask . Be careful, however, for the most sensitive skin, we advise you to do retinol sensitivity tests before including it in your skincare routine.
Can we put a hyaluronic acid serum on the skin while using the LED mask to increase the effects of the LEDs?
We recommend using the LED mask on clean, dry skin, without cream or serum . We are going to launch a study in 2023 to find out if using our multi-active serum with the LED mask could multiply (or not) the effects of the latter. While waiting for the results, we recommend the use of the mask alone to have the best possible effectiveness known to date.
Does the LED mask help improve dark spots?
Our mask has not been developed or tested for this skin problem. The mask has an action on the “inflammations” of the skin. Indeed, the red lights stimulate the production of collagen, calm redness and unify the complexion. We advise you to treat brown spots with dedicated treatments, such as our unifying radiance cream which helps reduce the appearance of pigment spots (thanks to tranexamic acid, retinol, vitamin C or even arbutin). Also contact your dermatologist for personalized advice.
Can the LED mask be used following eyebrow pigmentation (micro blending)?
We invite you to check this with the professional who did the tattooing of your eyebrows and who will give you the contraindications. NOOANCE has not carried out a test dedicated to this problem and therefore cannot rely on scientifically proven data. NOOANCE is positioned on anti-aging prevention only.
Can the LED Mask be used after permanent hair removal?
We invite you to check this with the professional who carried out your permanent hair removal and who will give you the contraindications. NOOANCE has not carried out a test dedicated to this problem and therefore cannot rely on scientifically proven data. NOOANCE is positioned on anti-aging prevention only.
Is the mask not recommended in case of hair implant?
No, LEDs, on the contrary, favor the rooting of the bulb. Our “Essential” and “Professional” helmets have been specially designed for this use.
Is the LED mask risky for the eyes?
Red light and infrared do not pose a risk to the eyes when using an LED mask. On the contrary, there is indeed a scientific study* which has shown that red light and near infrared could fight against the decline of vision, but this has yet to be demonstrated with additional studies. However, we advise not to look directly at the LEDs when using the mask. As a reminder, NOOANCE is positioned on anti-aging prevention only. The mask has therefore not been tested in this sense.

Does the LED mask improve myopia?
Red light and infrared have no adverse effects on vision. On the contrary, there is indeed a scientific study (2021) which showed that red light and near infrared could fight against the decline of vision, but this has yet to be demonstrated with additional studies. As a reminder, NOOANCE is positioned on anti-aging prevention only. The mask has therefore not been tested in this sense.
