Earlier, when you wanted any such treatment, you had to go to a dermatologist’s office. The procedures at a dermatologist last for about 30 minutes, and they are more powerful treatments. These procedures are generally tailored to individuals’ skin concerns, and they require continuous visits over time to see significant results. But, in-office treatments can be pricey, ranging anywhere from $150 to $300. Compared to this, LED masks are much cheaper. The LED masks require less of your time at six to a maximum of 20 minutes to get moderate results.
Although the LED masks have similar functionality as K-beauty sheet masks, they are very different as compared to the sheet masks. For one, there is no wastage in an LED mask, whereas, in sheet masks, you have some waste to dispose of every time you use the mask.

What does an LED mask do?
LED (Light Emitting Diode) masks emit varying wavelengths of light that treat different skin concerns. For example, amber light helps in stimulating collagen and firm skin’s elastin. Blue light kills acne-causing skin bacteria, and red light reduces inflammation and promotes blood circulation. The light acts as the sun to a plant. It penetrates the skin to a cellular level and thereby promotes different intra- and inter-cellular reactions.
Are LED masks safe to use?
At-home LED masks are safe as long as you choose the right mask. And, protect your eyes while using the mask. Without proper eye protection, long term exposure to red and blue light can harm your eyes.
