The Power Of Light
What is light therapy? It is a scientifically proven, painless, and non-invasive way to rejuvenate skin, reduce acne and even boost your mood. Our professional-grade, hands-free light therapy mask addresses these three concerns in a single device, all in the comfort of your own home.
It is easy to wear while moving about or lying down, as the rechargeable device is easily secured around your face with a velcro strap. Our signature mask is made of silicone that comfortably wraps around the entire face, bathing it in soothing, comforting light.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is LED light therapy?
Light therapy (or photobiomodulation) uses Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and the application of light to the body for an array of therapeutic benefits. It was discovered by scientists at NASA to help speed up healing. How it works is that it promotes a natural photo-biochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis.
What are the benefits of LED light therapy?
LED light therapy has been shown to support cellular metabolism, stimulate the production of collagen and advance the repair and renewal of damaged skin cells. Other research-proven results include the smoothing of the skin, a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation as well as the improvement in the skin’s firmness and resilience. LED light therapy also increases lymphatic system activity and the restoration of the skin’s natural cellular activity.
Who is LED light therapy for?
LED light therapy is suitable for all skin types. The mask should not be used on children under 12 or anyone with an allergy to silicone.
What does LED light therapy treat?
Low-level-light therapy devices have been cleared by the FDA based on extensive research. They have been shown to treat: mild to moderate acne vulgaris, superficial, benign vascular and pigmented lesions, periorbital wrinkles and rhytides, sub-optimal local blood flow, circulation, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Does LED light therapy have any side effects?
It is considered extremely low risk when used as directed. It is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime.
Does light therapy utilize UV light?
Only blue, red, and near-infrared (not visible to the naked eye) light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are used in our light therapy mask, all over 400 nms. UV light is lightwaves under 400nm. No UV light!
How long does a session last?
Any prep required?
Just make sure your skin is free of clothing, makeup, sunscreen, or anything else that may deflect the light away from the skin.
Why do I need to remove my makeup?
Many makeup formulas contain light-reflecting minerals. For the best results, use clean, freshly washed skin.
Do I need to lie down to use my mask?
Because the mask is rechargeable and the battery is small, you can use it lying down, sitting, or even moving around.
Can I apply make-up after my session?
Yes, it is completely safe to apply moisturizers or makeup after your session.
What about Skincare? Before or After?
We recommend you do your LED session with a freshly cleansed face, then apply your Ember Hydrosol and Facial Oil afterward.
