You’ve probably scrolled past hundreds of social media images of celebrities posing with eerily glowing masks.
It’s enough to make anyone curious about the latest skincare sensation. But what are LED facemasks exactly and do they work?
The short answer is YES.
LED light therapy is clinically proven to help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as target other common skincare concerns.
But there’s a multitude of options for LED at-home, and not all LED facemasks are created equal. The type of light they emit, the materials they’re made out of, and the duration of treatment time needed to achieve results should be considered before you purchase.
Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about how LED works and the types of skin concerns it targets. We also cover how to use LED in combination with other skincare procedures and products to achieve firmer, younger-looking skin.
What’s LED Light?
L.E.D. stands for “light-emitting diodes”, which are clinically proven to rejuvenate all skin types. Whether you have dry, sensitive skin, uneven tone, oily skin, visible pores or a combination, LED light therapy can help improve the appearance of your skin.
The non-invasive treatment involves exposing your skin to red (633nm) and near infra-red (830nm) light frequencies. These frequencies don’t contain harmful UV rays and absorb easily into the skin.
While previously you might have enjoyed LED therapy in a clinic, now you can bask in the therapeutic light from the comfort of your home.
3 (and More) Reasons to Love LED Facemasks
LED Reduces the Signs of Ageing
LED fans are raving about the results: smoother, firmer and more hydrated skin and less wrinkles. LED light therapy is proven to boost collagen and elastin production, visibly reducing the signs of ageing.
As a bonus, LED therapy also promotes the production of serotonin. This naturally occurring chemical is essential for sleep, wellbeing and happiness.
Unlike other rejuvenation procedures, LED light therapy is completely non-invasive. It’s an appealing option to those who want to hit rewind on ageing, but aren’t quite ready for more invasive procedures.
There’s no need to feel anxious about any discomfort or downtime. The anti-inflammatory effect of LED encourages healing—the perfect complement to Dermapen Treatments™.
The only type of “downtime” you can expect with a LED treatment is a blissful 10 minutes out of your hectic schedule. When was the last time you treated yourself to enforced relaxation, simply sitting and letting your mind wander?
After your treatment, slip off your mask and face the world with confidence. It’s the perfect choice to fit in with your busy lifestyle as there’s no inconvenient puffing or redness. You glow from the get-go.

How Does It Work?
Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D. uses two proven wavelengths of light; red (633nm) light and near infra-red (830nm) light. Clinical studies have shown these wavelengths stimulate the cells that produce collagen and elastin.
LED light therapy improves blood flow and tissue oxygenation through a process called photobiomodulation. This helps rebuild the damage caused by the ageing process. Enjoy naturally plumper skin, with diminished fine lines and wrinkles.

Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D. is an industry leader in at-home light therapy solutions thanks to the dual strength of light it emits.
- Red light rays (633 nm) boost blood circulation and promote collagen production to reduce and prevent wrinkles. It evens out tone so you look more radiant.

Unlike those claustrophobic, hard, and uncomfortable LED masks, Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D. is made from flexible silicone that comfortably moulds to the contours of your face.

How to Use
Prepare Your Face
Thoroughly cleanse your skin before use to remove any barriers to light that may have built up over the day or night, allowing the rejuvenating light to penetrate your skin. Try MICRO DERM EXFOLIANT™, a versatile cleanser and exfoliant that removes dulling residue and dead skin cells.
For best results, use Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D. combined with LUMAFUSE™ HYDROGEL SHEET MASKS. These intensely moisturising masks leave you with a healthy, radiant, glowing complexion. The LED light absorbs through the hydrogel for enhanced penetration of both the actives and light.
Turn it On
Making sure the battery is charged, slip on the flexible silicon mask securing the straps behind your head. Turn on.
Do I Need to Cover My Eyes?
Due to the intelligent design of the Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D. no eye protection is necessary. This area remains uncovered during treatment.
However, if you’re sensitive to light we recommend relaxing with your eyes closed for the duration of treatment.
Light products, including Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D., are not recommended if you:
- Have a genetic predisposition to light,
- Have a genetic eye condition, or
- Are taking medication that increases light sensitivity.
Relax or Multitask? It’s Up to You
You might prefer to take the opportunity to enjoy 10-minutes of relaxation, either sitting up or lying down, breathing deeply. However, we understand that sometimes life is too busy to take a break. This LED mask is fully portable (unlike some cumbersome models), so you can multitask.

Getting the Best Results
To get the best results, apply your Dp Dermaceuticals L.E.D. 3-5 days a week for a minimum of 4 weeks. It’s safe to increase the number of days beyond this, and you can even double dose if you like.
