What is LED light therapy?
LED stands for light-emitting diode. It was originally developed by NASA in the 1960’s to grow plants and experiment in space. Since then they have shown promising results in wound healing and tissue growth.
LED Light Therapy is a facial treatment that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s recommended for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore skin’s radiance.
Does it actually work?
YES! Studies prove LED light therapy devices improve a range of skin conditions, including wrinkles, psoriasis and mild-to-moderate acne. Even Navy SEALs have been using LED light therapy to help heal wounds faster. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most people with acne will see an improvement, as long as you are using the therapy. You can also google it ;)
How does it work?
Different wavelengths of light in LED lights, including red, blue and orange penetrate the skin at different depths. This penetration triggers biological processes that help the skin rejuvenate and heal.
What are the benefits
LED or "light-emitting diode,” works by emitting infrared light (causing heat) in specific wavelengths/spectrums, which have different skincare benefits. It has been shown to speed healing, boost anti-aging properties, and kill bacteria.
RED Light Therapy
This increases natural hydration levels, reduced redness and inflammation, shrinks the appearance of pores, regulates oil production, improves circulation, accelerates skin repair as is a medically-approved treatment for rosacea. Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, it increases cell permeability and absorption, smooths lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity, and accelerates wound healing.
BLUE Light Therapy
This is a powerful antibacterial properties for the treatment of acne without irritation, reduces oil production, prevents future breakout and offers a UV-free alternative for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.
ORANGE Light Therapy
This shade is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness. Orange is used to flush waste from the skin. It revitalises the skin, reducing any swelling and increasing radiance. It will boost lymphatic flow, increase cellular growth and aid in the production of new skin cells. This treatment is perfect for your sunspots.
How does this compare to professional treatments?
Professional treatments will set you back 250-450$ a session and you’ll need to go a few times a year, professional lasers are more powerful but doing Luma Aesthetics Shield regularly will give you similar effects.
Why use LED light therapy when we are told to stay out of the sun?
It does not contain UV rays, which are harmful to the skin.
How often should I use it and how long do I wear it for?
10-20 minutes per color and you can do it everyday. Consistency is good to reap the benefits!
Is the mask waterproof?
No. We recommend the user does not fully submerge or wet the unit. Being that it is an electronic device any large amount of water will cause issues with the unit.
How long should I charge the unit? How long will it stay charged for?
20-30mins of charge will get you 1 hour of use. 1-2 hours of charge will get you anywhere between 2-3 hours of charge. The button on/off changes from red to blue when it’s fully charge.
How long is delivery?
Normally delivery is within two/seven days, However covid has really put a damper on the postal industry so it can be between 2-4 weeks. We wish we could speed it up! You also have 1 year warranty.
