Termed as the most futuristic skincare tools, LED face masks have become the talk of the beauty world. If you’re somebody with a thumb on skincare’s pulse, you know what we’re talking about. These coloured light-emitting diodes are the coolest of cool skincare tools. From beauty influencers to celebs, our Instagram keeps showing us a glimpse or two of this device.
Celebrities like Mira Rajput and international beauty bee Kylie Jenner have mentioned this LED mask in their beauty routines. But, does a viral and cool-looking tool guarantee its efficacy? Let’s find out!
Dr. Nivedita Dadu, a Renowned Dermatologist, spoke to HealthShots about this snazzy-looking skincare tool and who all can benefit from it.
“LED face masks work efficiently to treat a number of skincare issues. LED masks offer multiple favourable effects on the skin, including helping to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen production. They can prove effective in controlling acne breakouts and reducing sun damage.” says Dr Dadu, Founder and Chairman of Dr. Nivedita Dadu’s Dermatology Clinic.
They can offer brilliant results for skin rejuvenation and restoring radiance to the skin. “LED masks have many anti-aging benefits, but they can also help you improve skin texture and reduce scarring,” says Dr Dadu.
It has become an intriguing tool as these luminescent masks can help you achieve a glowing complexion. These are effective against common skin concerns such as sun damage, inflammatory conditions, and wound healing. These masks can also speed up the recovery from rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
Dr Dadu says, “If somebody is not suffering from any specific skin complaint, they can still benefit from using it. LED masks are great to achieve an enviable skin texture by reducing signs of ageing and improving the skin’s general appearance.”
Red light helps in increasing blood circulation on the skin, it stimulates the cells to produce more collagen and gives a smooth and soft skin. It also helps to shrink large pores and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
LED light therapy uses different wavelengths of visible light to target specific skin concerns. Those suffering from acne, can opt for a blue light. It can alleviate acne occurrence and dry out pimples.
However, this light-up beauty tool comes at a whopping price. Therefore, consider only if you’re ready to chip in some bucks for it. However, LED face masks can be used with other skincare products too. The light therapy helps in better absorption of the skin products. So, enjoy them if you can!
