What is an LED phototherapy mask?
An LED phototherapy mask is an innovative way to use LED light to treat numerous skin problems. The science behind the technology was first realised by NASA when astronauts discovered that their wounds healed faster and plants grew faster under LED light.
The amazing results have given the Deesse LED mask a huge celebrity following. Linda Evangelista loved the results so much that she was one of the first celebrities to buy her own mask. The Kardashians also swear by using LED light phototherapy and Madonna is also a fan. The celebrities who have posted photos of themselves wearing the striking treatment mask on social media are numerous and the effects of their personal testaments speak for themselves.
The front of the mask is made from heavy-duty plastic, with holes for the eyes and mouth. The reverse of the mask is covered with rows of tiny LED light bulbs covered by transparent plastic. The mask may initially look unnerving, but it has been innovatively designed for your complete comfort while your treatment is taking place.
What treatments are available?
The UV-free LED lights come in five clinically-proven wavelengths to target specific skin problems. Each wavelength has a different colour – blue, green, yellow, red and near infrared.
A different combination of wavelengths are used to target many skin conditions, including:
- Anti-ageing – helps reduce fine lines and increases collagen and elastin
- Acne – destroys bacteria, balances oil production and reduces inflammation
- Detoxifying – stimulates the lymphatic system and neutralises, balances and calms
- Pigmentation – regulates melanin production and tackles redness
- Recovery – calms inflammation, destroys bacteria and speeds healing
- Rosacea – calms redness and inflammation, stimulates cellular renewal and repair
Am I suitable for a Deesse LED mask treatment?
If you want an anti-ageing or skin rejuvenation treatment without injectable wrinkle smoothing treatments or surgery, this is for you. You won’t feel any discomfort from an LED light phototherapy mask and it is perfectly safe.
The LED lights do not radiate heat, so the mask remains cool. The light does not shine in your eyes – you will not actually be able to see the light at all during treatment. What is more, the mask doesn’t cause any temporary inflammation like some more abrasive treatments.
What does the treatment involve?
You just lie back and relax! Sessions don’t take long – just 20 minutes. While you are relaxing the mask is working, sending wavelengths of light energy into your skin’s deeper layers. Your therapist will know what dose of colour light therapy will treat your specific skin problem effectively.
The Deesse mask’s different coloured lights can be turned on simultaneously and the mask is able to combine the different colours for your ultimate skin prescription.
When will I see results after the LED phototherapy mask treatment?
Your skin will immediately feel softer, plumper and lifted which is why the treatment is a favourite just before celebrities hit the red carpet. However, it takes around six to eight treatments to see and feel the real benefits.
Are there any side effects from a Deesse LED phototherapy mask?
One of the beauties of the LED phototherapy mask is that there are no side effects.
