So when the CurrentBody Skin LED light therapy mask was released, we couldn’t wait to try it!
This fully flexible, anti-ageing red light LED mask has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by 35% in just 4 weeks! In addition, during testing 95% of users said their skin tone, texture and firmness improved! Have we peaked your interest yet?
Below, our founder, Carolina shares her thoughts as she reviews the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask and answers some of the most-asked questions. Carolina has reactive, allergy-prone skin with redness.
Light therapy is something I have been regularly enjoying in my facials for the past few years. As someone prone to redness in my skin, I have found red light therapy really helps and I have noticed a difference when I have regular treatments. Therefore, when I got the opportunity try out the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask, I was beyond excited.
Where to buy the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask?
You can buy the mask on the CurrentBody website here. Plus, they deliver internationally, worldwide.
What Makes this Mask different?
Over the past 2 years, a lot of LED light therapy at-home masks have made their way onto the market. Where this one triumphs is that it flexibly adapts to your face shape, as opposed to other generic, pre-molded masks that may not fit everyone’s face perfectly. This is a big deal as the better the fit, the better the red lights can target each area of your skin.
Another area where the CurrentBody mask stands out is its clinical claims. Their site has lots of inspiring 'before' and 'after' photos showing wrinkle reduction (35% reduced in just 4 weeks!) and plenty of science to back up all the results. For me, this is one of the biggest selling-points because when it comes to using tools, especially on your face, you want to know that they are doing only the best things for your skin.
What is LED Mask Therapy? What does LED Mask Therapy do?
LED light therapy is essentially a device that uses different lights (and different wavelengths) to penetrate the skin and create a natural rejuvenation process. Different types of light address different issues, with acne responding well to blue light, for example.
The CurrentBody Skin LED light therapy mask uses a combo of Red and near infra-red light, which help with anti-ageing predominantly; aiding a more glowing complexion. However, for other sensitive-skin people like me, the big draw is the fact that the red light stimulates the production of collagen. This helps in calming redness and creating an even skin tone, as well as boosting blood flow and oxygen to skin cells.
Is it safe to use an LED light therapy mask?
Firstly, I want to emphasise that I am not a scientist or dermatologist, I am simply a skincare-obsessive, working in the beauty industry. However, from everything I have researched and been told from experts, yes, LED masks are 100% safe for use in both facials and at home. However, you should ensure that when you use the mask at home, you follow the supplier instructions. Each mask (no matter what brand you purchase) should have instructions on use.
How to use an LED Mask at home?
For the CurrentBody Skin LED light therapy Mask you are supposed to use it 3-5 times a week. I use it about 5 times a week at the moment to really maximise results. The mask has a self-timer, which is brilliant as all I need to do is press the button to switch it on, and then, after 10 minutes it automatically switches off. Typically, I use it first thing in the morning to clean my skin (very important!) and then, I apply my moisturiser after.
You can also use the CurrentBody LED mask with their Hydrogel sheet/gel mask. This is basically a transparent mask you apply to your skin and then layer the LED mask on top. This is the only mask I have heard of that works under LED light and helps enhance the benefits and results. Personally, I love to have the option of using it when I really want to amp up the results. I felt it helped to plump the skin and enhanced the post-mask glow.
Which LED Mask is the best to buy?
I obviously tried the CurrentBody Skin LED light therapy mask, but there are lots of others on the market as I mentioned. I have tried some of the other red light therapy masks and this one is my personal favourite for its results and flexibility. It is a brilliant option for those interested in an all-rounder that helps with anti-ageing, as well as general brightening and calming redness. If your skin concerns are more acne-based, I would suggest looking at blue light masks – Foreo’s Espada or Dr Dennis Gross DRx SpotLite Belmish Reducer are both great for something more targeted.
What are your personal thoughts on the CurrentBody Skin LED Mask?
I will start off by saying I loved it! For me, living in quarantine means I am not able to go for regular facials, so this is a brilliant at-home alternative. LED light therapy is such a core part of the treatment I get during a facial and I noticed pretty similar benefits with CurrentBody’s at-home version. I have covered a lot of the reasons why I love it above, but calming redness has got to be my number 1 reason. After 6 weeks of using the product 5 times a week, I have genuinely noticed a difference in the redness in my skin; it has really helped calm it in a gradual way.
This at-home version came with some hefty claims about improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin tone, texture, firmness, and calming redness. Although it has only been 6 weeks, I have really begun to see improvements in all of these areas.
I also love the fact that it’s the only LED mask I know that you can use with its own special sheet/gel mask (for those who really want to maximise results). The CurrentBody Skin LED light therapy mask is one of my new favourites and I highly recommend it for anyone with redness-prone, sensitive skin, or if you want some anti-ageing benefits!
