Pigmentation improved in 84.6% of the patients, and a reduction in telangiectasis was seen in 81.25% of the patients.

How to Use LED Face Mask at Home?
Compared to in-clinic procedures, at-home LED face mask are very easy to use and don’t take much time. Before starting, you need to cleanse your skin (you can also use a scrub to purify the pores). Wait until your skin gets dry and then place the mask over your face using adjustable straps, so it sits on your head tightly but comfortably. Choose the regime you need, close your eyes, and wait for 10 minutes until the light automatically shuts down. After using the mask, apply any moisturizer or serum to complete the routine.
What Color of Light Therapy do I Need?
The iAaBeauty LED face mask has 4 regimes - Red, Blue, Infrared, and Mixed Lights. If your skin is with visible signs of aging, like wrinkles and lines, Red and Infrared lights are perfect for you! You can use it individually, or use one type for a week and then try another one next week to understand which regime works better for your skin.
If you have acne and/or acne scars, the blue and mixed lights are the best option. Blue light helps breakouts to disappear faster and prevent the forming of acne scars, while mixed light can brighten pigmentation and facilitate the healing of acne scars.
Hyperpigmentation is also a very common problem nowadays, but using mixed light every day can significantly brighten spots and reduce inflammation.
Can I Use an LED Face Mask Every Day?
We recommend to use LED face mask no more than 3-4 times a week for 10 minutes during the first 3 weeks of usage. After 3 weeks you can start using the device every day as a part of your facial routine and prolong the time from 10 to 15 minutes.
Does LED Face Mask Really Work?
This is the question that bothers everyone the most. If we take a look at people’s LED face mask before and after results on social media, the results sometimes look unbelievably good. Those who suffered from acne for many years assure us that after starting using an LED face mask, acne goes away with each treatment as if resorbed on the skin, the skin looks smoother and post-acne goes away in 5 days instead of 2-3 weeks! Others admit that indeed after using the mask fine lines and wrinkles near the eyes became less visible, skin became more elastic, and pleasant to the touch, and redness was also gone. Overall the skin took on a healthy appearance and a natural glow. So as you can see, there are lots of positive comments on the internet about LED face masks.
LED Face Mask Before and After
I’ve been testing the LED face mask for the last 2 months and here are my before and after results:
Because of the unhealthy lifestyle, lack of sleep, and pressure, acne became a very prevalent skin disorder, and I’m not an exception.
Speaking about my skin, I have been struggling with mild acne and acne scars for 5 years now. Modern medicine clinics offer many ways to get rid of acne and to make your skin look smoother, but let’s be honest, not all of them work, needless to say, some of them are also pretty expensive. I tried many procedures in clinics, like peeling, phototherapy, plus medical treatment, but still, I didn’t get the results I expected.
So I decided to try an at-home LED face mask, coz I really enjoyed the results of LED light therapy that I did in a clinic, but didn’t want to pay 100$ for one procedure every time.
Speaking of an LED face mask’s regimes, I prefer using mixed light, coz I have many acne spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, so I find the mixed light is most suitable for me because combined lights are effective for both healing and rejuvenation.
For the first 2 weeks, I was using the mask only 3-4 times a week for 10 minutes before bed or in the morning. After a week of using the mask, the first thing I realized was that all the acne I had that time was fading away faster. After 2 weeks I only had a couple of small pimples on my elbow and the hyperpigmentation that I usually have in summer(freckles on my nose and cheeks) started to fade away.
After using the mask I prefer to use lotion first (sometimes I use it before applying the mask if my skin feels dry) and then apply a moisturizer.
In the 3rd week, I started to use it 5-6 times a week for 10-15 minutes, sometimes I even fell asleep wearing it.
After 2 months of using the LED face mask, I almost didn’t have any new breakouts and even if I did, it didn’t leave any scarring behind, which is already a huge result for me. Hyperpigmentation almost disappeared and generally, skin looks smoother and fresh.
All in all, if you want to reach better results, I would recommend you to be patient and keep on using the LED face mask constantly for at least 1-2 months and you won’t be disappointed with the results.
