10 factors that make a good LED Face mask
LED face masks have become incredibly popular over recent years. Adored by a huge number of celebrities, social media influencers and beauty treatment seekers, they can be used to treat a wide range of skin concerns. However, not all LED face masks are created equally. Let’s take a look at some of the things you need to consider if you are looking for an LED face mask that will help you overcome your skin challenges and serve you well for years to come.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN LOOKING FOR AN LED FACE MASK:
- NUMBER OF LED LIGHTS
Look for a mask that has high-quality, medical grade LED lights built into it. The number of LED’s built into the mask is also very important as it means more light can penetrate the skin. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask has 90 medical grade, LED lights that deeply penetrate the skin.
- WAVELENGTH ( NM ) STRENGTH
An LED wavelength refers to the specific length of the electromagnetic wave emitted by a Light-Emitting Diode, determining the color of the light produced. The wavelengths are what emit specific light energy that create chemical reactions beneath the skin layers. Wavelength frequencies are measured in nm ( nanometres). Each LED face mask will have different nm. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask has very powerful wavelengths and one of the strongest BLUE and PURPLE LED lights in the market with BLUE LED of 460nm and PURPLE LED OF 620nm.
A good way to measure is if the wavelength colours are within these
- Red light: 600nm – 700nm
- Infrared: 650 –1,000 nm
- Orange light: 635 – 590nm
- Blue light: 450nm – 490nm
- Yellow light: 560nm – 590nm
- Purple light: 400nm-450nm
- Green light: 520nm – 560nm
- Cyan light: 490nm – 520nm
- TREATMENT MODES / COLOURS
Each wavelength of light has its own specific skin benefits. Selecting an LED face mask with modes that align with your lifestyle and the specific LED colors you require is crucial; merely observing various colors in a mask does not necessarily indicate a wide range of wavelengths it offers. The advanced and versatile LED masks provide numerous treatment modes, incorporating a blend of various wavelengths and adjustable intensity levels to cater to your skin’s specific requirements. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask has 4 LED colour options ( red, blue, yellow and purple ) and unlike it’s competitors has more than just the standard 2 LED light settings. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask is a professional option that helps with multi-skin concerns ranging from : redness, blemishes, inflammation, sun dame, hormonal breakouts , uneven skin tone, pigmentation, dry skin, dehydrated skin, paralysis, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and more.
- HOW CLOSE THE MASK SITS ON YOUR FACE
It’s important the LED mask sits close to your face for maximum absorption, effective light delivery and uniform coverage. The ideal distance between an LED mask and your face can vary depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations and the specific design of the mask. However, as a general guideline, LED masks are typically designed to be positioned very close to the skin without touching it directly. Usually, the recommended distance is around 0.5 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 centimetres) away from your face. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask is a full face-fitting mask that reflects more closely to your skin (approx. 0.3-1cm opposed to the standard 3 -10cm). The mask’s ability to effortlessly adapt to your face shape has made it one of the biggest sellers in its field recently.
The price of an LED face mask is often linked to factors such as the quantity and quality of LED lights and the materials used. It’s essential to keep in mind that your skin condition may change over time, so selecting a mask with at least three wavelengths could be a wise choice. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask is one of the most affordable LED masks in the market with it priced at £139.99 compared to premium priced competitors ranging from £270 – £1000.
- ADJUSTABLE SETTINGS
Adjustable settings are useful as they allow you to tailor the mask’s performance towards your specific needs. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask has both automatic and manual settings – perfect if you wish to customise your settings to your specific skin concerns or skin sensitivity to LED light.
- COMFORT AND LED MASK FIT
You also need to search for a mask which is comfortable on your face and fits well. Look for a lightweight mask that will stay on your face securely whilst you’re receiving your skin treatment. Adjustable straps can make the mask more stable. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask is incredibly comfortable to use and is known for it fitting like “second skin”. There’s no need to worry about the brightness of the LED lights causing you harm thanks to the rubber rim that’s built into the mask. The mask is also made from soft, flexible silicone that will gently mould to your unique face shape. This sets it apart from the uncomfortable and often rigid face masks on the market that tend to sit too far back on
- EXCELLENT ONLINE REVIEWS
Make sure you’re buying an LED face mask from a trusted brand with an excellent reputation. It’s also a good idea to read a wide range of reviews to get an in-depth idea of what to expect from your mask. Although there are many low-cost LED face masks available, it may be worth spending more to source something that will meet your expectations and serve a variety of purposes.
- SAFETY FEATURES
It’s also important to purchase a mask that has quality safety features. These may include protection from overheating or an automatic shut-off timer. These features help you avoid excessive light exposure and reduce the risk of skin damage and irritation. The SENSSE Pro LED Face Mask has been through vigorous customer testing with an independent research provider as well as is certified with multiple accreditations to ensure it meets the industry ethical and safety standards.
- EASE OF USE
It’s also best to buy a mask that’s easy to operate. Look for one that doesn’t have a complicated set-up procedure. You may also wish to get a mask that has low maintenance requirements. Make sure the mask comes with detailed instructions so you can enjoy a positive user experience.
