This at-home LED mask is your new secret weapon against Ageing

You might already know all about LED light therapy, a proven complexion booster to rejuvenate the skin, or you might be wondering why on earth you’d be using this device that resembles a Halloween mask. Trust us, they’re far less scary than they look, and you’ll only need to wear it for 10 to 20 minutes. LED (light emitting diode) therapy was originally developed by NASA to fast track healing in the skin and body for astronauts, and has since trickled down into a high-tech solution for skin improvement. The exciting news? LED treatments were once confined to skin clinics and dermatologists, but it’s now possible to get a skin boost at your own leisure, and in the comfort of your own home. Introducing the Dp Dermaceuticals LED Face Mask.

How does LED work?

Light therapy works to boost the natural collagen in our skin, combatting fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and acne, and has been a popular skin treatment for years. This non-invasive technique uses different wavelengths of light which essentially encourage your skin cells to work harder, resulting in a rejuvenated complexion. Simply bask in the light! Best of all, you won’t feel any discomfort – it’s actually a very cosy and relaxing feeling. This light is completely safe and doesn’t contain any ultraviolet rays, so you won’t need to worry about harming your skin. Research has shown that LED therapy can effectively treat and improve a number of skin concerns, and is suitable for all skin types.

How do I use the Dp Dermaceuticals LED Mask?

If, like us, you’ve really been getting into the self-care at home this year, you could opt for a mini facial first. Cleanse twice to remove all makeup residue and then exfoliate with a product like the Dp Dermaceuticals Micro Derm Exfoliant, so your skin is completely clean. Then, fix the mask with the straps, close your eyes, hit the On button. Use for 10 to 20 minutes while you listen to music, meditate or just have some time out. The optimum usage is around three to four times per week. Within just one session your skin will feel plumper, hydrated and instantly refreshed. The results are also cumulative, so you can look forward to a brighter, more youthful looking complexion within a month of use.

What makes the Dp Dermaceuticals LED Mask better than others?

Unlike most LED devices, Dp Dermaceuticals LED mask uses two proven wavelengths of light, red (633nm) light and near infra-red (830nm) light. Clinical studies have shown these wavelengths stimulate the cells that produce collagen and elastin. This helps rebuild the damage caused by the ageing process and other environmental factors. The mask has a completely smooth inside surface for easy cleaning, and is incredibly easy to use. Simply charge the portable device with a usb plug (as you would your phone), then transport it wherever you like. It’s comfortable and non-claustrophobic, and the lightweight, flexible silicone moulds to every face shape.

Are there any specific skin products I should use when I do my at-home mask treatment?

For optimum results, it’s helpful to cleanse both your skin and the mask with Dp Dermacuticals Cliniprep (after cleansing your face), and for the full clinic experience you can use the Lumafuse Hydrogel Mask or the Hyla Active Serum. These products have both been designed specifically to be used with LED, unlike other products which may block the rays. After your mask session, complete your treatment with the Vitamin Rich Repair serum, an active and nourishing solution to fast-track your ant-ageing results.
