Led Light Mask FAQ’s Answered
What is the Mello LED Mask and how does it work?
The Mello LED Mask is the ultimate skin care experience for the face. The combination of LED light programs provides effective treatment for a wide range of skin problems. The versatility of the mask works by emitting light at different wavelengths to combat the most common skin problems.
Light is measured in nanometers, and LED lights have different depths. If the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses to do its job. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which give the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back)
What is the Effects of LED On The Skin?
LED light therapy works by activating deep within cells to boost metabolism. After the light is absorbed into the skin, light energy is converted into intracellular energy which relaxes and strengthens capillaries, while increasing cell activity. Depending on which wavelength is being used, light therapy will increase collagen production & cell renewal, diminish fine lines & wrinkles, reduce pigmentation & even skin tone, shrink large pores & smooth skin texture, kill acne causing bacteria, and minimize scarring.
Do LED facials really work?
LED light therapy was originally developed in the medical setting for fast-tracking the healing of wounds and post surgery scars, as well as other various skin conditions. The rejuvenation of healthy skin, too, was a pleasant coincidence. For these reasons, light therapy became a popular treatment method by dermatologists and beauty practitioners worldwide.
This technology has been tested in many clinical studies (scientific, medical & independent) and is FDA approved for at home usage. Studies conducted using LED for acne and anti-aging showed significant improvement for both.
Are there any side effects & is this treatment safe?
This treatment has no adverse reactions. LEDs do not emit UV light, so there is no risk of sunburn or skin cancer. It is the only aesthetic device that has no contra-indications of any kind. It is good for all skin types, colors, and many conditions. LED devices are classified by the FDA as possessing “non-significant risk”; they are safe and possess no possibility of harm from over-exposure.
Children, pregnant women, epileptic or thyroid patients, people with light sensitivities, or those with wounded skin should not use this device. Furthermore, if you are taking steroid or cortisone injections please ask your doctor if this product is right for you
Is the treatment abrasive or painful?
Light therapy is a gentle, painless, non-invasive and non-abrasive treatment. You’ll have no down time after each treatment.
How soon are results visible?
Depending on the severity of your skin, personal skin type will determine how long results will take, however, many users see a difference after the very first treatment. It will be smoother, plumper and have a naturally radiant glow. However, since the device is essentially stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms, the most visible results are not immediate. Instead, results occur gradually over several weeks. Between 3-5 treatments will be needed for you to see long lasting results on those areas that are being treated. With each treatment you will see improvement.
Here’s an example of only 3 sessions within a week:
How often should the mask be used?
Maintenance treatments and a good home skin care routine are necessary if you want your results to last. We recommend using the LED mask daily for optimal results and a maximum usage of 30 minutes a day. Treatment sessions can be divided accordingly with different lights.
What is the difference between the Mello LED Mask and the ones they use in salons?
Very little. All LED technology will differ slightly in the specific wavelengths and strength of light emitted, but, the effects will mostly be the same.The light emitted by in-salon devices is the same light emitted by the Mello LED mask as we also use medical grade LED lights. Mello just gives you the freedom to complete your treatments on a more regular basis, in the comfort of your own home.
Does this treatment compliment other skin care regimens?
While other treatments beautify the surface of your skin, light therapy strengthens and rejuvenates your tissue from a cellular level. When these regiments are combined, you’ll get great results. We highly suggest incorporating the mask with an existing skincare regime
Should I avoid the sun after a treatment session?
Color light therapy does not increase your sensitivity to sunlight. However, if you are going into the sun, it is important to always apply sunscreen.
