The LED Mask
** New service offered by SkinWorks by Melanie! **
At first glance, you may think “Storm Trooper” or “Michael Myers??”, but rest assured, the mask-wearer is unharmed. Celebrities like Katy Perry, Jessica Alba and Linda Evangelista have become ambassadors of “LED therapy” by posting pictures of themselves on Instagram (#LEDmask), making the treatment more popular.
What is hiding behind that mask? Dozens of LED bulbs (light-emitting diodes) that radiate and tackle different skin concerns. It also allows for better product absorption, and is best used in conjunction with a professional skin care regimen.
LED Light Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated by hundreds of Universities, medical labs and most importantly, NASA.
Red(630 nm)— One of the most powerful colors to increase blood circulation, stimulates skin cells to produce collagen to achieve firmness and smoother skin texture. The red light (penetrates 8-10mm) is suitable for any type of skin; it can reach the dermis level to stimulate skin cells. Improving blood circulation and collagen production can reduce wrinkles and make skin more elastic and smooth.
Blue(415 nm)—Excellent for treating acne, kills bacteria, calms inflammation. The calming blue light (penetrating about 0.5mm) is suitable for sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. It reduces sebum secretion, effectively treating breakouts and healing damaged skin.
Green(525 nm)—Anti-aging and brightening, smooths wrinkles and fine lines, cures wounds, brightens. The green light is suitable for combination and hyper-pigmented skin. It also stimulates collagen and elastin production.
LED therapy has also been proven to effectively aid in seasonal depression and other emotional stresses!

Contraindications for light therapy include pregnancy and epilepsy, photo-allergy, and medications that cause light sensitivity (such as Tetracycline). Also, if you are currently taking steroids or cortisone injections, you should not receive light therapy.
The red light penetrates up to 8-10mm ceasing the inflammation process, it significantly improves healing and reduces chance of scarring. It accelerates blood circulation, stimulates skin cell re-growth through fibroblast cells enhancing collagen and elastin production and triggering self-repair mechanisms. Collagen plumps up the skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while elastin helps to firm sagging skin. Red light also works to reduce inflammation and decreases the redness associated with rosacea, particularly when used in conjunction with blue light. Beneficial for any skin type.
- Accelerates blood circulation
- Stimulates skin cell re-growth
- Enhances collagen and elastin production
- Reduces inflammation and decreases the redness associated with rosacea
- Beneficial for any skin type
The blue light regulates skin’s sebum secretion (reduces oil production). This light penetrates up to 0.5mm beneath the skin and has powerful calming and anti-bacterial properties. It is beneficial for sensitive or oily/acne prone skin, as well as enlarged pores. Blue light is proven to be an effective treatment and cure for acne, since it destructs and eventually kills the P. acnes bacteria (acne). When used consistently, blue light treats existing blemishes and prevents further outbreaks without the negative side effects of topical medications.
- Reduces oil production
- Calming and anti-bacterial properties
- Cleanses the body of waste substances and repairs blood and lymphatic circulation
- Beneficial for sensitive or oily/acne prone skin
- Effective treatment for acne
- Helps prevent further outbreaks
The green light is for hyperpigmentation and aging. Its spectrum between red and blue provide a combined healing process. The green light has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties; it helps fight free radicals, improves skin texture, and activates and oxygenates skin cells. Green light targets melanocytes; it inhibits the production of excess melanin, preventing it from traveling to the skin’s surface, as well as breaks up melanin clusters to diminish existing discoloration. When used consistently, green light gives the feel and appearance of brighter, more luminous and radiant skin tone.
- Effectively reduces hyperpigmentation
- Helps fight free radicals and improves skin texture
- Gives the look and feel of brighter, more luminous and radiant skin tone

Microcurrent Stimulation is a process in which ultrasonic electrodes are used to release a low-frequency, low-intensity current to stimulate physiological nerve impulses to firm the skin’s tissue and underlying muscles. This process stimulates the blood in the epidermis and dermis, releasing vital amino acids and ATP (Adenosine Tri Phosphate) activating lymphatic circulation providing a muscle “re-education” and awakening of tired muscles (that create the appearance of sags and wrinkles). Microcurrent technology delivers a gentle electrical frequency that mimics our skin’s own electrical signals, stimulating the musculature, accelerating the natural cellular turnover process of our skin. It has a stimulating, yet relaxing effect, while boosting natural collagen production and tightening and firming the muscles under the skin.
During/After Treatment: There’s absolutely no pain or discomfort during the treatment, and no recovery time. Unlike other treatments – like IPL (Intense Pulsed Light laser), there is no initial ‘controlled damage’ done to your skin. Long recognized by European dermatologists, and FDA-approved, it’s one of the latest and most advanced anti-aging treatments to look younger and better without surgery. LED light therapy is safe and effective for all skin types, has no known side effects, downtime or pain.
Microcurrent/LED Therapy CANNOT be performed on the following: If your are pregnant, have epilepsy, a pacemaker, metal pins or inserts on the treatment sites, insulin dependent diabetes, lupus, stroke, auto-immune disease, acute sensitivity to light (migraine), taking photo-sensitive drugs (ie Accutane or tetracycline within the past 3 months).
