Light is vital for the existence of life on the planet and LED face masks are inspired by this very fact. Successful experiments by NASA using certain wavelengths of LED light showed stimulation of growth in plants on their space shuttle. After NASA developed this successful technology - it expanded into the medical field and discovered healing benefits on humans, too! This provided a fresh impetus to the beauty experts across the industry and, consequently, LED light therapy was developed for the beauty industry. LED Light Face Masks can either be placed above or worn while certain LED light colors are used to stimulate the cells and tissues of the skin to bring desired results of healthy, radiant-looking skin.
If you are new to LED face masks or have related concerns, Avari Beauty has got you covered. This blog explains what impact the different wavelengths generated by an LED face mask have on your skin.
Red: Red wavelengths are associated with anti-aging benefits. It promotes collagen (the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues), which leads to tightening of the skin, plumping up the skin with added collagen production, and better blood circulation in the skin making sure nutrients are delivered and waste is removed to and from the cells.
Blue: Bacterial infection causes acne and pimple. Generally, they develop when pores on the skin become clogged with too much oil (sebum), dead skin cells, or bacteria. Luckily, blue wavelengths sterilize those harmful bacteria and their toxic components. It shrinks sebaceous glands, reduces inflammation and scarring and promotes oxygen. It also helps to minimize the size of pores.
Green: Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. Green wavelength light reduces hyper-pigmentation. It also balances oily skin, relieves mental stress, and promotes lymphatic drainage.
Purple: This light is a combination of red & blue light and has an excellent anti-aging quality. It sterilizes acne-producing bacteria, reduces inflammation & scarring, and assists with fine lines & wrinkles.
Cyan: Our skin is nurtured by hundreds of minute blood capillaries. Aging, infection and lack of vitamins often reduce their blood flowing capabilities. Cyan stimulates their performance. It also balances skin texture, reduces inflammation & scarring, and relieves mental stress.
Yellow: Red blood cells are the oxygen carrier, and oxygen is vital for the metabolism. LED face masks emitting yellow light stimulates red blood cells, reduces hyper-pigmentation, balances skin texture, reduces fine lines & wrinkles, and reduces redness.
White: Worried about fine lines and wrinkles? White light wavelengths from LED face masks can help you win the battle. It penetrates the skin deepest! It speeds up skin metabolism, tightens loose skin, reduces fine lines & wrinkles, reduces hyper-pigmentation, and also has a substantial role in curbing inflammation & scarring.
