What is LED light therapy?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) was actually first developed by NASA for healing treatments and has also been used in the beauty world for 15 years. With LED light therapy, the light is absorbed by the skin which then turns into energy and stimulates your cells to replicate more healthy cells.
What are the benefits?
LED light therapy has a range of immediate and long term benefits for your skin. Our mask helps with reducing acne, pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea, eczema and even treating dermatitis including perioral dermatitis (PD). It does this by oxygenating the skins cells and increases blood flow and circulation, reduces inflammation and redness. This is going to help your skin's collagen, elastin and the function of your skin so it is functioning optimally and looking its best!
How does it work?
Our skin has the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy so the mask emits the perfect type of light for different skin concerns. Our mask uses therapeutic light on your skin, which is UV-free, and this stimulates the cells to regenerate and build new proteins that are needed for optimal skin function.
Is it safe?
LED light from our mask is completely safe! It is a noninvasive treatment with no downtime, that actually works! There are many medical studies that show it has no adverse side effects and has been used in salon for years. Our mask has also been FDA approved for your peace of mind. There are a few people who should not use it however as a precaution and these have been outlined below.
Can anyone use this mask?
Generally all skin types can use it however some shouldn't use it and should consult their doctor first:
- pregnant or breastfeeding
- allergic to lights
- taking thyroid medication (This is simply because it can actually help the thyroid gland. There are many studies that suggest that LED can help regular thyroid function so therefore it can affect the dosages of your medication so it is just something to be aware of.)
Please let us know if you have further questions about this as generally you can check with your doctor and LED could be fine for you even if you relate to the above.
Will it make me break out?
No - LED light does not lead to breakouts but actually assists in clearing existing breakouts and helps to stop more from coming to the surface. It can speed up pimple recovery time, reduce redness and inflammation and also helps with lymphatic flow and drainage which helps your body get rid of toxins that build up. Blue light is best for this as well as the red light to assist the healing process.
Can it help with my pigmentation?
Definitely! We recommend the yellow light for any pigmentation or sun damage concerns. It can minimise the appearance of any pigmentation and lighten it and help with any inflamed areas. Remember to stay out of the sun and use SPF daily to keep these results!
What results can I expect?
After even the first treatment many people notice a new glow that they didn't have before! Some have noticed a difference in their skin texture after 3 uses. Now after just two weeks you will notice a big difference in skin texture and it will feel more plump. After 4 weeks of consistent use your skin will feel firmer, tighter, clearer and brighter. Your complexion will be glowing and people will be asking what you've been doing to your skin! Stay consistent with it for 12 weeks and you will notice even more results.
Will it work for me?
Many people notice skin changes in their skin after 4 treatments and you should have great results after using the device 3 times per week for 12 weeks (and then maintenance usage after this) however results do vary.
How often should I use my Glowstick Co mask?
We recommend 3 times a week (30 minutes each treatment and choose the colours depending on your concerns) minimum for the first 12 weeks or until your skin is glowing and then just a maintenance treatment of 1-2 times per week from there. You can't really overuse LED light so you can use it as much as you like but our guide for best results is 3-5 times per week.
Will it affect my eyes?
Our masks have built in protective silicone goggles that thoroughly shield your eyes from any bright light or damage. This was a very important feature to us in the development stage of the product as we know you've purchased this product for your skin and not your eyes.
Can I still do other things while using this mask? Multi-tasking?
You can multi-task all you like! This was another key aspect of the design that we wanted to get right because we know you all love to multi-task and make the most of your precious time. Many other masks out there are uncomfortable and you cannot see out of the mask or do anything else. With our Glowstick Co mask you can catch up on emails, watch Netflix or scroll on Instagram while giving yourself a professional treatment in the comfort of your own home. The mask is really comfortable on your nose and face with the specially designed protective silicone eye goggles that rest gently on your face.
