For most of us, LED masks are probably a relatively new concept, but they have actually existed in professional clinics for 30 years already. Did you know that it was NASA that first researched light therapy for the treatment of skin? They discovered that LED light had good results when it came to healing wounds and repairing ligaments.
How does an LED mask actually work?
Silkemyk's LED mask works by emitting different wavelengths of light that trick our skin into thinking it is damaged. This initiates a natural repair process in our skin cells. It stimulates the production of collagen in our skin, and it is precisely collagen that keeps our skin young, tight and wrinkle-free.
The mask also stimulates our skin cells so that they get more energy. The cells use this energy to absorb more nutrients and get rid of more waste products. Silkemyk has taken the LED mask out of the skin clinic and into anyone's home. You can use this product from home - completely safely. The mask has been clinically tested and is of course FDA approved!
In this blog post, we will go in depth on Silkemyk's LED mask, and what it can do for you and your skin.
What is LED light therapy?
Light therapy using LED light is a gentle form of treatment that takes advantage of the skin's natural healing properties. The therapy works by applying infrared light in different wavelengths to the skin. The various color treatments have a number of benefits for your skin, and LED masks have therefore become a popular form of treatment for various skin problems.
The treatment stimulates collagen production in the skin, smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, prevents acne breakouts and redness, reduces pigment spots and scars, regulates oily skin, makes the skin firmer and fights signs of ageing.
Collagen production is important for your skin
Did you know that the protein that tightens and strengthens your skin is called collagen - and that the production of collagen in the body decreases as we age? In fact, the body breaks down more collagen than it is able to produce already after we turn 25, and that is why we eventually get looser skin and more wrinkles.
In principle, the body is able to produce collagen itself, but the problem is that forces such as the aging process begin to work against us. That is why we at Silkemyk have launched a new product - namely an LED mask that initiates collagen production in the skin.
GUIDE: How to use Silkemyk's LED mask completely safely from home.
Our LED mask provides an effective and wonderful treatment that keeps your skin young and healthy for longer. Here is a guide on how to use your LED mask from Silkemyk. You can use the mask anytime and anywhere, but many people like to use it in the evening after they have finished their skincare routine. This is a completely painless treatment that takes around 10-20 minutes depending on the result you want to achieve.
1. Start by connecting the machine to the battery bank that comes with the product. It is important that the battery is fully charged before you start treatment.
2. Use the ergonomic silicone pads to adapt the mask to your face shape so that it fits well.
3. You switch on the LED mask by touching the sticker by the left eye opening.
4. Switch between the color programs by touching the sticker by the right eye opening. Choose what you want to use. Specifically, Silkemyk's LED mask works by using 4 different color programs - all with different properties.
The different light treatments penetrate the skin at different depths to treat different skin challenges. Use this overview if you are unsure about which color program you should choose for your skin.
Red light: This light treatment penetrates the deepest into the skin. It regenerates skin cells, reduces signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines, and evens out your skin tone.
Yellow light: This light treatment strengthens sensitive skin and reduces skin redness.
Green light: This light treatment calms irritated skin, and it also evens out the skin tone like red light.
Multi-programme: This is a brilliant multi-programme where you get a bit of everything! The treatment starts with a red light, switches to a yellow light, back to a red light again, before ending with a green light.
5. Sit on the sofa, watch something fun on TV and relax!
6. The mask switches off automatically when the treatment is finished.
We at Silkemyk understand that some people find it easier to learn visually. We have therefore created a video guide with instructions on how to use our LED mask which you can see here.
How quickly do you see results?
This is a mild form of treatment that is suitable for home use - you will therefore see a gradual improvement in your skin already after the first treatment. Nevertheless, it will take several weeks before a full-fledged result is achieved.
How often should you use the LED mask?
We recommend using the mask 4-7 times a week, and preferably in the evening after you have done your skincare routine. The length of each treatment is often 10-20 minutes. A full-fledged result lasts for most people for around 180 days. To maintain the result, we recommend continuing the treatment with our LED mask at 4-6 week intervals.
Do LED masks work for home use?
Yes. According to this clinical meta-study about the effectiveness of LED light therapy, those who used the LED mask daily reported that after 12 weeks they experienced:
- 87% got smoother facial wrinkles and finer lines in the skin
- 81% got improved skin tone and improved skin smoothness.
- 83% experienced reduction of acne after only 8 weeks.
Why is light therapy good?
LED light therapy stimulates collagen production in your skin. It is collagen that keeps your skin young, tight and full of glow. The LED mask will reduce pigmentation, redness and intense inflammation in the skin. The mask regulates oil production and fights acne and impure skin. It helps your skin form new collagen and evens out unevenness such as wrinkles and lines in the skin. It gives you younger and fresher skin, and revitalizes the skin in depth.
Who is LED light therapy suitable for?
Our mask fits everyone regardless of age and ethnicity, and it is completely safe to use.
Is the light harmful to the eyes?
No, it is not harmful. The mask comes with protection for the eyes so that the LED light will not damage the eyes during treatment. Avoid looking at the light before and after treatment.
How soon will you be able to see the results of the LED light treatment?
This is a mild form of treatment that improves the skin's properties by initiating the production of collagen in the skin. You will therefore see a natural and gradual improvement already after the first treatments. It will take several weeks to achieve a full-fledged result, but it will be worth it!
Does the treatment hurt?
No, the treatment with our LED mask is completely painless.
Is the treatment dangerous?
No, this is a gentle treatment suitable for home use and is not dangerous. The mask is FDA approved and clinically tested. One must not confuse LED light with UV light.
How long does the result last?
For most people, the result lasts for 180 days from when you achieve full-fledged results. To maintain your healthy and fresh skin, we recommend that you continue the treatment at 4-6 week intervals.
