Light-emitting diode (LED) light therapy is one of the most effective clinical and at-home treatments for a wide range of skin conditions. But it’s also plagued by fear-mongering and misinformation.
Sure, most LED masks look strange, but that doesn’t mean they are unsafe. Today, we’ll explain why our CurrentBody Skin LED Mask is safe to use for a range of skin healing and anti-ageing treatments at home.
What is LED light therapy?
According to WebMD, light therapy “uses skin-safe, low-level light in different wavelengths and colours.” These rays penetrate the skin barrier to provide a range of skin benefits. At-home versions are more gentle on the skin because the bulbs are not as intense.
That’s good because it enables you to use these devices for anti-ageing, skin healing and hair regrowth without medical supervision. They’re still effective, however.
Benefits of LED light therapy
The goal of light therapy is to treat acne, ageing, heal wounds, clear Psoriasis, fight skin cancer and prevent hair loss. This LED light doesn’t contain any of the unsafe UV that we’re always told to protect against.
According to Revive, “The science behind LED light therapy technology was originally developed by NASA to grow plants in space. Due to the regenerative properties of LEDs, light therapy was found to have the potential to naturally heal wounds.”
Over time, we found out that this light can do even more. It encourages the natural production of collagen and elastin. And this reduces wrinkles and other signs of ageing. And as the only Beauty Device Experts, we’ve cleverly translated this science into at-home devices like our very own LED mask.
The CurrentBody Skin LED Mask
Our mask is a powerhouse. The CurrentBody Skin LED Mask is proven to reduce wrinkles by 35% in just 4 weeks. Nearly everyone who uses it enjoys a better skin tone, even texture, added firmness and more tightness.
That’s because our mask has two technologies at work: red and near infra-red light therapy. These different light types work together to plump, firm, heal, resurface and tone.
It’s loved by famous faces like Nina Garcia, Kaley Cuoco, Carey Mulligan and more because it just works. But it’s safe too. So safe you don’t need goggles or any extra faff. Just cleanse your skin, slip on the mask and lay back while it fights your skin concerns and visible signs of ageing.
Is it really safe?
While other LED masks have been recalled recently, the CurrentBody Skin LED Mask is proven safe and effective. And generally, according to Healthline, “Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays. Therefore, they’re safe for regular use. LED light therapy doesn’t cause burns compared to other treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It may be safe for all skin and types.”
Can it damage your eyes?
No. The CurrentBody Skin LED Mask will not damage your eyes. You don’t need goggles either.
Can it burn your skin?
No. There are no UV waves. So, it’s not the same sort of burning light that we wear suncream to protect against.
What about the CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector? Is it safe?
Of course! CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector meets international eye safety standards and protection is not required. This is because the light-emitting diodes or LEDs don’t cover the eye area and there aren’t any blue LED lights on this device.
It’s blue LEDs that require eye protection and this device contains only healing amber, red, deep red and infrared. They’re delivered at exactly the right frequencies to heal the delicate eye skin.
Will it damage your eyes?
Definitely not. The CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector won’t damage your eyes. If you find the lights too bright, goggles are provided just for your comfort.
Will it burn your skin?
Nope. The CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector is specifically tuned to fight wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes. It turns off on its own, so you don’t need to worry about overexposure. And it doesn’t give off any heat or nasty UV that causes skin damage.
