Frequently asked questions

If you’re wondering if ‘light therapy’ actually works, know that over 3 decades of research back up this technology. It was actually NASA that originally developed the power of LEDs to grow plants in zero gravity during the 80s. When the scientists tried red light on astronauts, they discovered that their wounds healed faster. It wasn’t long before hundreds of further studies exploring the lights regenerative effects on a wide variety of skin conditions, led to clinical machines that could emit these therapeutic lights.

When used consistently, over a course of treatments, LED lights offer corrective and long-lasting results.

Side effects are rare, but may include increased inflammation, redness, dry skin and rashes. Call your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms post-treatment.

  • Do not use this treatment if you are using anything on your skin that makes you sensitive to sunlight.
  • If you are currently using Accutane for acne, be advised that this powerful drug derived from vitamin A increases your skin’s sensitivity to light and may cause scarring in some instances.
  • People with the rare condition known as porphyria, which is a blood disorder that causes increased sensitivity to light, should avoid this therapy. Similarly, it should not be used by people with lupus.
  • You also might consider avoiding this treatment if you currently have an active rash.
  • Talk with your doctor if you have psoriasis. Red light therapy could help but only if you use it in conjunction with your regularly prescribed treatments.

Yes. Dermatologists have used visible light devices as an acne treatment for the past 20 years. It’s a research-backed treatment that’s safe for most people.

Blue light is particularly effective and FDA approved to deal with acne. This light is able to kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin and shrink overactive oil glands. Red light also tackles inflammation – meaning it can work on acne that shows signs of inflamed red bumps and pustules. In addition, red light helps promote healing and may therefore decrease the visibility of acne scarring. Because LED light both calms inflamed acne and kills the bacteria that causes it, you can use this device not only to clear your skin, but also as a preventative measure for future breakouts.

NOTE: LED light therapy works on acne that has its roots in inflammation, and clogged pores, and does not work on hormonal acne.

Yes, the red light is proven to increase the production of collagen (the protein responsible for your skin’s strength, firmness and structure) thereby reducing wrinkles and sagging skin. Yellow light has also been documented to tackle all signs of photoaged skin.

Patients typically see optimal results after 3 months. The results of LED treatments are cumulative, with people achieving their desired outcome in 8 to 12 treatments, each one a week apart. After the initial sessions, results are maintained through treatments around every 2 to 3 months.

You can boost the results of light therapy by applying skincare products to your face before treatment. Remember, this device helps ingredients penetrate the skin so be sure to use high quality products.

It’s also perfect for use after a microneedling session to aid in healing and recovery.

High quality serums with natural ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin c and peptides are recommended for use with the mask. Oily creams are not recommended for light therapy because oils can reflect the light like a mirror.

LED light technology is safe for skin, this means you can use it everyday and for a longer treatment time. However, professional guidelines on the treatment recommend 20-minute sessions (no longer than half an hour), twice a week, for optimal results.

Light therapy is suitable for all skin types.

No, LED light therapy is completely non-invasive and does not hurt. All you’ll feel is a slight bit of warmth.

No, LED light therapy does not use UV light so there’s no risk of tanning.

No, the mask has built-in silicon protection around the eyes; the lights are also not bright enough to cause eye damage.

However, you should turn off the power before taking off the mask, and avoid staring directly into the LED lights for extended periods of time.

Further to this, you can choose to close your eyes during treatment. Those with particularly sensitive eyes can also use additional eye protection – placing cotton pads over the eyes will be adequate.


If you wear contact lenses, you should remove them before using your LED mask.

Please use a damp cloth to clean your LED mask.

  • Do not use water directly on the mask
  • Do not use any chemical liquid to clean the mask
  • Do not expose it to direct sunlight
  • After you have completed treatment, place the mask back in the box and avoid leaving it on your bed.
