While we still don’t have flying cars in 2020, we do have something way better -- LED devices to cure our skin issues. Yes, since 'skin is in', LED devices are now stealing the spotlight when it comes to investing in treatments and tools that promote healthy, glowing skin. But LED devices aren’t a new concept. They have been around for years and mainly used by many dermatologists to treat major skin concerns. But since we’re living in the age of innovation and technology, instead of spending tons of cash at the doctor's office, you can now invest in an at-home LED skincare therapy device.
But with so many options out there, how do you pick the right one? Well, lucky for you, we’ve got the answers you need. Just like skincare ingredients, there are specific devices that cater to specific skin problems. From acne to ageing to puffy eyes, there’s something for everyone! Keep on reading to know more.
Before moving on to the right LED devices, you need to first understand how this light therapy can eliminate your skin woes. LED Light Therapy is a skincare treatment which uses different wavelengths of light to help solve different skin concerns. The great thing about this type of skin therapy is that it uses red light, blue light, or green light, and sometimes all, to treat skin issues, without having any side effects, making it is suitable for all skin types. Each light penetrates deep into the epidermis to eliminate the problem.

Check out how these LED devices which target the most common skincare concerns and leave you with beautiful, healthy skin -- minus any bad reactions.
You’ve probably seen this Terminator-like mask blowing up on Instagram. These LED masks which emit blue and red light are great for tackling pimples at home and removing every single trace of them. The blue light targets acne, while the red light removes any pimple marks or spots left behind. The blue light also targets acne-causing bacteria to prevent future breakouts.
Once we cross 25, the collagen production in the body reduces. Collagen is basically the key ingredient that helps keep the skin firm and tight, and the moment it starts to decrease, the skin loses its elasticity. Luckily, there is a device for this issue too. LED devices which use Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Radio Frequency, and different colour wavelengths can help stimulate collagen production as well as reduce the visibility of dark spots, wrinkles and stretch marks in the process.
If LED masks are out of your budget, you can always stick to regular sheet masks that are rich in antioxidants to improve your skin's elasticity and reduce the signs of ageing.
LED light devices aren’t just useful for clearing up skin issues. If you suffer from muscle pain and soreness in certain parts of the body, you can use LED light treatment to get rid of it. LED devices that cater specifically to this problem, use the different light wavelengths on the affected areas to soothe and heal it by increasing blood circulation.
Dealing with a bad case of puffy eyes? Then, there is a light solution for that as well. There are pocket-sized wands available in the market that use red light therapy to repair tired skin and encourage new cell turnover. Now, no need to hide your puffy eyes with sunglasses for your next zoom call, just add this device on your eyes and you’ll look fresh as a daisy in no time.
Go on, update your skincare routine with some new-age technology!
