Since the Covid-19 pandemic is endemic throughout the world, people are required to stay at home if they don't have urgent needs outside. With its easy and fast spread, as well as scary symptoms, covid becomes a scary thing when you are outside the house. As a result, during the pandemic and social restrictions, many people are doing many things from home, such as work, shopping, etc. Beauty care is no exception. People began to do their beauty treatments in their homes which are usually done in salons. Sheet Masks are the prima donna in self-care at home. But of course, the results are not as instantaneous as direct treatment at the salon with beauty equipment.
The beauty industry quickly and responsively responds to this problem by developing technologies that can help maintain skin beauty. LED Mask is the latest innovation that provides benefits equivalent to some treatments done in a beauty salon. It may seem strange to use this equipment because it will look like a robot or a character in a fictional character, but many art workers who have done this treatment at home have found it useful and it quickly became a trend that many people followed. They claim to get firmer skin results, the pores appear smaller, and the skin color becomes even.
What is an LED Mask?
LED Mask is a face mask that has several LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights embedded inside which are capable of producing light with different color spectrums. In the world of beauty, there are 7 colors that have been clinically proven to have benefits in overcoming skin problems. Treatments that can be done alone at home for 20 to 30 minutes can provide benefits according to the treatment performed.
This technology basically mimics what NASA has discovered in conducting farming activities in space and ultimately being used for the wound healing process. Before being applied to face masks, LEDs have been used in beauty clinics for treating skin problems.
How does it work and the different benefits of each color produced by the LED Mask?
The light produced by LEDs has different wavelengths, from 400 to 700 in nanometers. This difference in wavelength will have an effect on the incoming light and the benefits it will provide.
Wavelength with 700 nanometers can penetrate deeper layers of the skin so that it can trigger the production of collagen, waves with this length are produced by the color red. Lack of collagen production is caused by many factors, from increasing age and frequent sun exposure. This is based on research in the American Journal of Pathology. By stimulating the formation of collagen, wrinkles on the face will be disguised so that the skin will look younger.
Wavelength with 400 nanometers generated by blue light, ideal for treating acne skin problems on the skin surface. This wavelength can trigger the photochemical oxidation process, this process will kill bacteria that are on the skin layer so that acne problems can be overcome more quickly. This is based on the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology from June 2017.
Colors with different wavelengths that are no less popular in LED treatments are yellow and green. Yellow is generally used to treat the problem of sunburned skin due to exposure to sunlight for too long. While the LED that produces a green color is used to gradually remove dark spots.
Can LED light really work to solve skin problems?
In short, the answer to this question is yes. The light generated from the LED can provide benefits for skin beauty.
For further explanation, a case study has been conducted involving 52 women as participants in March 2017. In this study, it was found that the wrinkles on the eyelids were reduced after the procedure. In another study conducted in August 2018, it was found that LED Devices can provide rejuvenating effects such as more elastic skin, more moisturized, and reduced wrinkles.
Answering questions in dealing with acne problems, a review was carried out from March to April 2017 at a beauty clinic. Records show a reduction in inflammation of 46 to 76 percent at 4 to 12 weeks post-treatment. To support this statement, a review was carried out from November to December 2019 which showed the results of blue light were far promising for overcoming acne problems.
Is it safe to do this treatment at home?
Treatment using an LED Mask is so far safe with a note that the equipment used has FDA Certification or other certificates that support safety in its users. One of the popular LED Masks developed by Neutrogena was withdrawn from the market due to the risk of damaging the eyes during treatment.
Based on the report, the negative effects that arise from the use of LEDs are problems on eye health and there are no other negative effects on facial skin. To avoid this make sure to choose a product that already has eye protection, it is even better to buy your eye protection outside the manufacturer that can counteract the negative effects of the LED light.
