The skincare industry in recent months has been growing at a breakneck speed in the past year especially. From boredom during the pandemic to the desire for self-care routines, people are investing in skincare now more than ever before. This year LED masks have been the most trendy ground-breaking beauty-tech to be made available to the public. From being able to reduce redness, to acne breakouts and minimising age spots, there is little that these masks cannot do.
The Best LED Masks For Anti-Ageing
Pra.L Derma LED Mask
The LG mask is just another example of groundbreaking Korean technology. It uses 120 LED lights to improves firmness and tone of your skin as it penetrates deep into the skin layer. LG carried out a test on a group of people who used the mask for six weeks, twice per week. The results were fantastic; skin tone was improved by 100% compared to before using the mask. And inner skin density improved by 92% compared to using moisturising gel alone. This mask is prize winning and is an iconic piece in the industry which sells out regularly, so make sure to have your email alerts on for it.
Derma Pra.L Mask, £469.99
This universal-fit full-face model uses 100 red LED lights that stimulate collagen production as well as elastin which reduce wrinkles, sun spots and sun damage. Their clinical study showed that 97% of people showed visible improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and acne over a 10-week period of daily use. This product is not only excellent for anti ageing, but it is incredibly convenient, coming with a USB charging cord, storage bag etc… you can take it with you, wherever you go.

The Most High Tech LED Masks
Déesse Pro has been adopted into the skin care regimes of A-listers all around the world, from Madonna to Kate Hudson and the Kardashian sisters, light therapy is seen as the ultimate way to create flawless glowing skin. Déesse, market leaders in LED technology have created this phototherapy mask which uses the same scientific light principles used by NASA. NASA initially used this technology with plant growth in space but they quickly discovered that it also can also increase the speed of your skin’s healing process through the creation of new healthy cells.
This mask is the most impressive in the technology department for a wide variety of reasons. This mask uses Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) which the majority of other masks in this industry do not. It is then combined with high-quality light emitting diodes (LED’s) in 4 variations to expose the skin to 4 wavelengths of light. Deesse’s creation also has the option to add Near Infra Red (NIR) to every mode of the mask. NIR can speed up the rate of your metabolism, an essential feature to boost your skin’s radiance.
It is clear why this mask is the leader in its market, it treats all key skin concerns with its revolutionary technology and six different modes that can be used at home or in the top spas all over the world.
Professional LED Mask Next Generation
Cellreturn Platinum LED Mask
Korea’s "number 1 skin care secret" has just landed in the UK, with the Cellreturn becoming available in England. Using patented LED and NASA-derived technology, the Platinum LED Mask boasts a cult following in Korea, where its fans include Korean celebrities such as Park Seo Joon, Yeom Jung Ah and Kang So Ra. The mask uses a combination of Near Infra Red (NIR), Red Wave Length (RWL) and Blue Wave Length (BWL) lights giving you a total of 1026 LED lights, which according to the brand makes it the most powerful skin care device available globally. The device includes a wireless charging cradle, an extra open face shield, cleansing towels and silicone eye shields. The helmet-like design, which wouldn't look out of place in The Mandalorian, allows the lights to cover all sides of the face including the neck area enabling it to take care of neck wrinkles also.
While most masks, including the LG Pra.L Derma, require a controller this option is completely wireless. It features a touch sensor on the top of the mask to start and stop and also change the settings.

The Most Affordable LED Devices
The LED mask trend does not have to leave a hole in your wallet. If you are still unsure about the hype of these masks, we suggest these two affordable and easy to use light therapies to ease your way into the market.
Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment
Neutrogena’s invention is a light therapy stick that has adopted the technology of a full face mask. Due to its smaller size and concentrated effects, this tool is considerably more affordable than many of the other light therapy options on the market. Easy to use, this tool has been created to target blemishes such as acne with both red and blue light directly.
This affordable piece of tech has three modes, blue (anti acne), red (anti ageing) and yellow light (boost lymphatic flow and increase production of new skin cells). From the reviews it seems that this mask does exactly what the ones that A-listers are using at a fraction of the price. It is a perfect fit for somebody looking for an all-round skin healing and radiance boosting option.
