At this point we've all seen the Futuristic Ninja Masks all over Instagram and Pinterest. And we've ALL wondered, "Do they work?". We'll I'm going to give you the No Bull on the matter today. So you can decide if this is the skin care treatment for you.
Do they work? In short, Yes. Overnight? Not one. The Red Light Therapy needs time to actually stimulate collagen production. Your collagen structure is what gives your skin it's healthy, young, "supple" feel. Yellow Light Therapy can also help with the "Feel" of the skin.
The Blue Light Therapy kills the acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes, which can cause inflammation. P acnes is sensitive to blue light. Using the blue light, you can eliminate the bacteria found in the oil glands in the skin. Because it works by killing bacteria, this treatment works more quickly and with less treatments before you're able to see the results.
On average it takes two to three weeks to start seeing results.But that isn't long compared to a life time of damage. PLUS if you use Hyaluronic Acid along with the masks, THAT's when you really see the results. There IS a reason these masks have been talked about by everyone from The New York Times, thru Elle, to TODAY. These aren't just the Skin Treatment Du Jour. In MY opinion, these bad boys are here to stay. So expect to keep seeing these cool Sci-Fi Jason Masks on your news feed. At least for the foreseeable future.
