Pair skincare with technology, and you’ve got my attention. I’m fond of skincare devices because, unlike topical products that work on the skin’s surface, they go beneath the skin, shooting in a myriad of benefits. And now was about time to start using one — turned 30 and began to see my first two minimal lines, a smile fine line and one the forehead. So, keeping them plump with a LED mask is the best thing I can do, without office trips and lots of money spent. That, in addition to a diligent skincare routine. So, when CurrentBody asked me to try out their LED mask, it seemed a perfect idea — the fitting addition to complete my skincare regimen.
It’s been four weeks I have been using it now, and here I’ll take you through my experience with CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask. Spoiler: it turned me into a forever fan, and my skin is loving me for it!
What is CurrentBody Skin LED Mask?
A device that tackles fine lines and wrinkles working to produce collagen and boost blood flow helped by red (633nm) and near infra-red light (830nm), that’s what the CurrentBody LED Therapy Mask is. As an aside, red light between 630-700 nm penetrates 2-3 mm in the skin, while infrared 800-1200 nm gets in the skin at 5-20 mm depth. At that depth, enhanced blood circulation has a key role in encouraging cell regeneration. What does this mean? New, fresh cells replace old cells, making skin look renewed, firmer, evener, and healthily glowy. Moreover, when red light penetrates the skin, it activates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, increasing elasticity, plumping wrinkles, decreasing scarring, and shrinking pores look. And it’s all pain-free!
Unlike most LED masks, I like that this one is made of flexible silicone, which perfectly wraps around the face, featuring an adjustable velcro closure system, so it stays put. It feels very comfortable to have it on, not heavy at all, and it’s easy to use. Intrigued?
How to use it
Before anything, I exfoliated my complexion two days before so that no dead cells buildup was hindering the light, so it goes straight in the skin for more benefits. On cleansed skin, I put the mask on, press the button, and for 10 minutes, I’m just staying there, relaxing and enjoying the goodness my skin gets. I love that the CurrentBody LED Therapy Mask stays really close to the skin — the closer, the better — and it automatically shuts off, so no worries about exceeding the time.
What you slather your skin in after using a LED mask is super important because the skin gets really thirsty, and with the boosted blood flow, the ingredients sink right into the depth layers. A serum does best after LED therapy — its itty bitty molecules send perks deep into the skin. So, the serum should obviously target your concern. I have used Sunday Riley C.E.O. Vitamin C Brightening Serum because I struggle with dark spots after being an acne sufferer for years. Then, I lock everything in with The Inkey List Peptide Moisturizer, which works to regenerate skin and has a gel-like texture, ideal for my too oily complexion. Oh, and the glow!
You can use pretty much everything from the A-list of skincare ingredients, such as vitamin C, retinol, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, peptides, and squalane. P.S.: Dodge AHAs, BHAs, Accutane, or anything harsh that may irritate your skin the same day you’re using your LED mask.
The instant results are parched skin ready to drink a good serum. And a bit of redness — must be the enhanced blood flow — which goes away in a few minutes or so. I have used the CurrentBody LED Mask for four weeks now, 3-4 times a week, and even if the results are not dramatic, I can see improvement in how my skin looks overall. The texture seems subtly improved, and my fine lines appear less visible also before I do skincare.
Dramatic results or not, one thing I know: I’ll keep feeding my skin with red LED light. In the end, LED masks are supposed to be used for about a few months to see noticeable results, and I promise to keep you updated with the results of using the CurrentBody LED Mask in the long run too.
Given my experience, I recommend the CurrentBody LED Mask to everybody craving great skin without spending a lot of resources. It’s an FDA-cleared device, safe and easy to use, and, in my opinion, is the best addition to any skincare routine, no matter the concern. Fairly, a LED mask won’t replace in-office treatments, and the benefits always depend on each skin condition. For instance, in the case of deeper wrinkles, it might take much longer to see noticeable results.
