Although the terms LED light therapy and LED face masks might sound a little sci-fi, it has grown in popularity in the past few years as an anti-ageing treatment. Many skincare brands have launched portable, handheld versions of the in-office LED treatments you would normally only have when seeing your aesthetician. The L.Linic Pro LED Face Mask is the beauty device to try for a salon-worthy at-home facial. It boasts a whopping 480 LED lights, utilising three specific wavelengths. The combination of near-infrared with red penetrates deeper into the skin than just red light alone. Treating multiple skin problems all at once, the LED face mask targets everything from poor skin texture and loss of volume to wrinkles and sagging skin. What more could a beauty aficionado wish for?
LED face masks feature in many top facialists’ treatments, thanks to their ability to tackle a wide range of skin issues. They work by delivering varying wavelengths of light to the skin at a cellular level, prompting the skin cells to work harder. Red light is a favourite for its anti-ageing properties, stimulating collagen production to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improve circulation for a healthy, radiant glow. Near infra-red light penetrates deeper, making it ideal for wound healing and inflammation.
Korea is seriously the holy grail when it comes to skincare products and beauty tools. Bringing a new level of potency to your skincare system, the L.Linic Pro LED light therapy mask might just be your ticket to nailing the hugely popular Korean beauty trend of having smooth and glowing skin.
L.Linic Pro harnesses the latest scientific advancements and research in light therapy to fully optimise your at-home LED treatment, using not only red light but also – harder to find in an at-home device –infrared light.
Worn over the face in the form of a very futuristic mask, the L.Linic Pro LED Mask is fitted with 480 LEDs of red and infrared lights, evenly distributed to penetrate your skin at different depths. Red and infrared LED lights work synergistically to deliver full-face, optimal skin rejuvenation with this LED light therapy mask. Used for just ten minutes a few times a week, the lights rejuvenate your skin on a deeper level to encourage cell generation, promising brighter, and more radiant skin.
A home light therapy treatment is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking its best
Feel like you have tried just about everything to make your skin look younger, smoother and healthier – apart from Red Light Therapy.
I am a huge proponent of red light-based skin therapy and have been using it for more than ten years. I can honestly say it is one of the most effective skin treatments I have ever used. It has done amazing things for my skin, keeping fine lines at bay. It is my go-to treatment for improving sagging skin.
Gentle and painless with no actual recovery time, red light therapy was initially pioneered by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and has been used by dermatologists for years to target everything from breakouts to collagen breakdown.
I’m always on the hunt for the most effective light therapy device for home use and was introduced to L.Linic Pro Mask a couple of months ago. It is an advanced full-face coverage, wearable phototherapy device that uses red and infrared light therapy to improve overall complexion and reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and enlarged pores. The treatment gives skin that fresh and more youthful look.
A home red light LED therapy device, its patented technology and adjustable, hands-free design provides full-face coverage that ensures maximum results and easy operation.
Non-invasive and effective, I have found that LED is excellent for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restoring skin tone, reducing pores size, brightening the skin and rejuvenating the youthful look of skin. This is one of the best beauty investments that can ever be made for the skin.
What is red light therapy
Our skin has the unique ability to absorb light and convert it to energy, which is great for regenerating cells and building new proteins. As we all know, the absorption of too much sunlight damages our skin. Enter LED light therapy, which delivers the advantages of light absorption without the damaging UV rays.
LED light therapy is an incredible treatment that uses low-level light therapy through the use of LED lights, or light-emitting diodes, that use proven wavelengths of light to treat different skincare concerns. It works by sending light to penetrate deep into layers of skin to stimulate cell production, heal trauma and speed up the overall regeneration process.
Depending on the kind of LED light used, treatments can reduce inflammation, redness, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles. Another significant benefit of this anti-ageing treatment is that it is safe, non-invasive, and painless and comes with zero downtime. Finally, it can be easily fit into any existing skincare routine.
The link between LED lights and skin healing has been supported by studies, including several from NASA, who originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to be promising for wound treatment. In addition, many clinical studies have been published about the positive effects of light therapy on the skin by physician members of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).
Light therapy technology has been used by dermatologists in their clinics for years now. It is used in the treatment of skin damage, acne, irritated rosacea-plagued skin, psoriasis, age spots, wrinkles and skin cancer or melanoma.
The importance of wavelength
Before purchasing a light therapy device, find out at which wavelength it operates.
LED light has different wavelengths that are measured in nanometres (nm) and target multiple skin problems. Though there is some overlap in benefits, different colours of LED penetrate different depths of the skin to address various skin problems.
The best light therapy devices use safe, clinically-proven wavelengths of light: red light in the mid-600 nanometer range, and near-infrared light in the mid-800s nm range. Red and infrared light are the two most versatile light spectra used for anti-ageing…
RED LIGHT: The longest of the visible light spectrum (typically falls between 620nm and 780nm), red light is used for its anti-ageing effects. It has been linked to the production of two key proteins – collagen and elastin, which work together to create stronger, firmer and plumper skin. This light will improve skin elasticity, increase blood and nutrient circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, minimise wrinkle depth and break up hyper-pigmentation.
INFRARED LIGHT: Part of the invisible light spectrum, infrared has the longest wavelength (typically falls between 700nm and 1,000nm). It penetrates muscles and the deeper layers of the dermis to help repair cell damage, speeding up the healing process and generally combat sagging and wrinkles. Infrared LED light works exceptionally well when combined with red LED light of increasing collagen production.
This means that using red and infrared wavelengths together is a powerful combination of combatting anti-ageing effects on the skin. Of course, there is more to effective LED therapy than shining coloured lights on the skin. Power, duration, distance, focus and certainly consistency all play a part.
Frequency and length of use depend on the quality of the light therapy device.
The anti-ageing benefits of red light therapy
For wrinkles, red light therapy can help reduce the signs of ageing and deliver a youthful, healthy glow. But red light therapy is not just for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
The complexion will be more lifted, toned, and improved, resulting in younger-looking, smoother skin, thanks to increased healthy cellular activity. In addition to helping to hydrate and heal the skin, it is also great for anti-ageing because it protects existing collagen and elastin, while also stimulating new collagen production. It smooths overall skin tone and repairs sun damage, providing a radiant glow.
LED light therapy can be easily operated at home and is safe for all skin types. You can read more about red light health benefits in our article What is red light therapy.
Red LED light therapy home versions range from hand-held to table-top and face mask devices. Home-use devices have been available to consumers for some time. Unfortunately, many devices are cumbersome, under-powered, have limited coverage or are simply difficult to use consistently. Many stop using them long before results can show.
I have used both hand-held and table-top light therapy devices and have found that both types have shortcomings. I feel that hand-held devices are extremely burdensome and difficult to use. They will rarely reach required dosage levels as they have a limited footprint and are typically underpowered. With table-top units or other standing devices, the distance to the light source typically prohibits accurate dosing because it constantly changes as the user moves around.
That is why I believe wearable devices tend to be more effective at delivering dependable light therapy. They provide constant, uniform doses to the target area during treatment, making each session highly consistent, which naturally leads to better efficiency.
I was, therefore, very excited to test L.Linic’s intensive LED face mask solves many of the problems associated with conventional facial phototherapy treatments, such as lack of sufficient output and inconsistency of treatment.
L.Linic Pro light face mask is one of the most powerful LED skincare devices for home use on the market
Designed to fit over the face (and scalp) like a hockey mask, L.Linic Pro will transform your skin.
The device uses low-level light therapy through surface-mounted, light-emitting diodes to expose the skin to clinically proven wavelengths of light – all delivered at safe doses. L.Linic Pro features 480 LED lights for optimum results, which is much more than most LED light therapy masks on the market.
Combining red and pulsing infrared LEDs at their optimal intensity to maximise power and efficacy, the mask stimulates the skin to produce the much-needed collagen that makes skin elastic and tight. Its red (630nm and 660nm) and infrared (850nm) lights penetrate the skin at different levels…
- Red wavelength 630nm goes down through the epidermis
- Red wavelength 660nm goes down through the epidermis and dermis
- Near infra-red wavelength 850nm goes down through the epidermis, dermis and subcutis
Although I have been using an LED light therapy system for more than ten years, I love the results I’m getting from L.Linic Pro. It really helps to reduce my fine lines and wrinkles. When using the L.Linic system consistently, I notice improved firmness and skin tone.
What makes L.Linic Pro different from other LED light therapy masks
L.Linic Pro was designed to provide maximum results with minimal effort, offering a host of unique benefits:
THREE CLINICALLY PROVEN WAVELENGTHS: Different kinds of light have different benefits. Visible red wavelengths focus on the skin’s surface, while infrared light, although invisible to the human eye, affects the cells on a deeper level. L.Linic Pro uses only the red and near-infrared wavelengths that are clinically-proven to be effective and safe. Uniquely, it utilises a combination of both red and infrared LEDs at specific wavelengths – 630nm, 660nm and 850nm – which is shown to stimulate cell growth and collagen production. This helps by making skin appear firmer, more radiant and youthful.
POWERFUL WITH 480 LEDs: The L.Linic Pro Mask is impressively outfitted with 480 light-emitting diodes – 256 red and 224 near-infrared – that emit various forms of safe yet powerful LED light to boost skin rejuvenation.
FULL-FACE COVERAGE: With an intelligent design, the L.Linic Pro boasts a patented full-face visor to cover the entire face. Its diodes are strategically placed around the LED light therapy mask to provide uniform coverage for the whole face for the entire treatment period. No need to wonder if a spot is being missed or if there is an area not getting adequately treated.
NON-FLICKERING LIGHT: The LED face mask is designed to produce a uniform, non-flickering light for the comfort of your eyes
HANDS-FREE, QUICK AND EASY TO USE: Unlike hand-held and table-top devices, L.Linic Pro is lightweight and completely hands-free, and is therefore easy and convenient to use. L.Linic does all of the work – just sit back or lie down and relax during each session. Adding to the mask’s ease of use, it comes with a built-in timer that shuts the lights off at the end of the treatment. All it takes is using L.Linic Pro for ten minutes in the comfort of your home.
SAFE FOR EYES: With an eye-safe zone and blue-light blocking technology, the LED mask is safe for the eyes as well.
IMPRESSIVE RESULTS: Visible improvements may already be seen within just four weeks, with the skin starting to look more youthful and supple. Results become even more impressive when the product is used consistently over time.
A PLUG-IN LIGHT THERAPY DEVICE: Battery-operated devices will experience variations in wattage, and their efficacy depends on the size and strength of the battery. Because higher currents lead to better LED performance, the best results come from plug-in red light therapy devices. L.Linic Pro plugs into a standard wall outlet for both a consistent power supply and no batteries to worry about replacing or recharging.
DURABILITY: The L.Linic Pro contains quality LEDs designed to last at least 10,000 hours. Based on that rating and the durability of the components being used, the expected life of the L.Linic Pro is five years with regular use. It comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
ADDITIONAL THOUGHTFUL DETAILS INCLUDE: The device comes with a handy remote control and a practical storage case.
SCALP COVERAGE: L.Linic Pro cares for facial skin and scalp at once, promoting a healthy scalp and hair. You can decide whether to treat the face or the scalp or both at the same time.
CERTIFICATIONS: For peace of mind, the L.Linic Pro comes with several certifications, including CE, RoHS, PSE, KIPO, KC, KTL, KCL and ISO EMS & QMS. L.Linic has also completed the FDA product registration.
Results, efficiency and convenience in one system
I am a huge fan of the ease and efficiency of L.Linic Pro, and I can highly recommend this product to anyone wishing to have more healthy-looking skin.
Uniquely designed with superior technology to make it easy and convenient for anyone to use, L.Linic Pro’s patented, LED-based light-therapy system is a powerful treatment that benefits overall skin health. Using it just a few times a week is a small investment of time that will lead to significant results.
If one’s beauty regime has room for just one beauty tool to improve skin at home, make it a red light LED therapy device. Tough to beat, L.Linic Pro is the Korean skincare device everyone should have on their wish list.
