NASA initially used the power of LEDs to grow plants on the space shuttle knowing that light can coax cells to produce more adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which encourages healthy growth and function. Scientists applied that same thought process to heal wounds on astronauts - and it worked. After additional infrared light research, the positive effects of different colored LED lights was fully acknowledged by science and the beauty world quickly caught on as well.
NASA first harnessed the power of LEDs to grow plants on the space shuttle in zero gravity. The light encourages cells to produce more of the chemical adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which fuels healthy growth and functioning; fibroblast cells, for example, will become better at producing collagen with more ATP. When the scientists tried red light on astronauts, their wounds healed faster, too—again, thanks to higher levels of ATP. Further research showed the various positive effects of infrared light, as well as visible red and blue light, on biomatter, and thus the science of LLLT was born.

LED therapy is actually quite simple. It works by penetrating the skin with high-energy beams. The rays gently penetrate into your skin to jump-start the internal process on a cellular level, from circulation to collagen production.
Our mask features seven different light modes to treat every ailment from acne, aging, scars, dullness and more.
Our mask is also wireless, which means you won’t need to sit by an electrical outlet to get your at-home spa treatment. When fully charged, you can even take the mask with you when you travel because the more you use it, the better your skin will become over time.
Face shields have less LED lights, which require much longer treatment times of 45-60 minutes vs. 15-20 needed for face masks.
Face shields also address fewer skin conditions. They only have 3 color spectrums versus the 7 colors that face masks offer. Having 7 colors makes treatment for different skin conditions more effective allowing for different light combinations. For example, treating acne may also require addressing oily skin. Using the blue light works to kill the acne-causing bacteria and the green light can balance the proportion of water and oil; effectively relieve mental tension and swelling.
The primary differences between the 7 lights are wavelength and the skin condition each treats. We have provided a clear but detailed outline of each color and what conditions it treats here.
At-home devices such as our mask have less intense wavelengths than the treatments you'd get at a dermatologist's office, which means you can use it safely but it may take longer to see visible results. However, you will save an incredible amount of money as it will take several visits costing hundreds of dollars.
Varying wavelengths affect the body differently, but the most effective wavelengths for red light therapy and healing range from 625nm – 900nm. 630nm is ideal for targeting all skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation or skin firming and our (Red Light) wavelength is at 630m. 630nm wavelengths easily penetrate into the skin cells and sebaceous glands to reduce inflammation from acne and rejuvenate the skin’s tone and texture by smoothing and evening out uneven pigmentation.
We recommend speaking with a medical professional regarding these conditions.
Regardless of which of the 7 different light modes on our mask you use, these spa-esque light treatments take between 15 and 20 minutes daily.
There are no ultraviolet rays in these devices, which means that if you follow our instructions as detailed, there is no risk of burns or damage.
Your at-home mask treatments are based on cumulative sessions and patience. We also recommend that for best and faster results, apply your favorite skin care moisturizer or toner prior to treatment. Think of each session as an opportunity to also step away and give yourself a much needed 15-30 minute well-deserved break from your day.
Regular in-office visits can be costly. While not as strong as the LED used in a clinic, you can get the same benefits but within the comfort of your own home.
Simply wipe the mask with a damp cloth or antibacterial wipe. The bands can be washed separately. Never soak in water.

The same sensation that you feel when your face is tilted up toward the sun with your eyes closed - slightly warm. (There’s no risk to sight, since the light isn’t a laser; nonetheless, it’s best to wear a sunbed-style eyeguard.
