I just had my 35th birthday yesterday. Yeah I can’t even believe I’m admitting to that right now, but unfortunately, I have to face reality sometime I guess. (Insert Frowny face) Fortunately, are skin doesn’t always have to give away our age! Thanks to some handy new innovative skincare gadgets on the market today, many women really are finding success in making their skin look and feel more youthful!
Being a beauty blogger, you can bet I try to stay on top of the latest anti-aging lotions and potions. What I’ve really been intrigued with lately though, are the new anti-aging lasers and light therapy devices for skin that can be used at home! We all know that getting a laser/light therapy treatment at your Derm’s office can be one of the best methods of fighting the signs of aging (and acne!) on your face. Unfortunately though, most of us do not have the money to shell out for the treatments.
I recently accompanied a friend on her treatment to the Dermatologist’s office, where she shelled out several hundred dollars for one laser treatment. Some of us may be able to justify the money for the treatment, but where I couldn’t, is when she came out of the office with a super blotchy red puffed up face covered in a weird gel. My friend, one of the most beautiful people I know on the outside and in, still pulled it off with her stunning beauty, but thanks to the serious drugs she was given for the pain (and boy did she feel some pain!) I had to drive her the 200 miles home. Living in a small rural town, that was the closest legit dermatologist office we felt was safe enough to visit!
Besides the pain, the puffiness, the long drive, and the money, laser treatments at the doctors office just doesn’t always work for a lot of us. Thankfully, I recently got to try out a fabulous new light therapy treatment you can do at home. I hope you’re sitting down too because when I tell you the price, you’re going to die! It’s only $29.95 (for the mask and a 30 day supply) + get FREE Shipping! Yep you seriously read that right, only $30 for a light therapy treatment you can do in the convenience of your home! I’ve actually tried out a few at home laser and light therapy treatments in the past, none of them being cheaper than a few hundred bucks, and honestly, after trying out the IlluMask, it is SO much easier to use too, I was almost completely sold right there! With other at home lasers and light therapy treatments, you have to hold the laser or light against your face for 20-30 minutes, which can be tiring and not to mention hard to keep your eyes closed. With the IlluMask, you just put on the mask, complete with its protective eye protection glasses, sit back and relax for 15 minutes, and it does the work all for you!
Here’s why I love the IlluMask: It not only is the least inexpensive light therapy treatment I’ve seen on the market, and it’s easier to use than most others, but it also uses innovative light therapy to reduce the wrinkles, give you brighter, more even skin, and make your firmer and smoother skin too!
The lights emitted from anti-aging lasers and light therapy treatments have been shown to stimulate the regeneration of skin cells, which is what makes skin look and feel more youthful. Certain wavelengths of the light used in these devices, stimulate an enzyme in the body that acts as a skin cell booster, causing the skin to turnover and repair itself. This process in turn increases circulation, which then leads to the production of more collagen and elastin in the skin. This as well all know, is what creates firmer, smoother, softer, younger looking skin! This is also what reduces the fine lines and wrinkles and fades and minimizes those sun spots too!
IlluMask anti-aging uses both red light and infrared light to help smooth out rough, uneven skin, minimize the wrinkles, giving you a much more youthful looking and feeling complexion! IlluMask uses only safe and gentle, and super effective NON UV light. You put on the mask and close your eyes if you want, but you don’t have too. The Mask and the light emitted from it won’t hurt your eyes. In fact, the mask looks red when you see someone else using it, but when you’re using it, you only notice normal bright light. I do love that the mask comes with protective eyewear built in, but you’re still safe to use it even with your eyes open. IlluMask is also FDA cleared so you can feel safe using it too.
Light therapy works over time although most people notice a difference in their skin after only 4 weeks of use! In fact, 93% off IlluMask users in a recent study, noticed an overall improvement in their skin in as little as only 2 weeks! Obviously the more you use your IlluMask anti-aging phototherapy mask, the better the results you will get too. You can’t overuse it.
To use IlluMask, just wash your face first, pat dry, then put on the mask like a pair of glasses. Push the button on the controller, and it will automatically start your session and turn off when it’s done. I really loved this feature. I would put it on before bed, lie down in my bed restfully for the 15 minutes it treated my face, then take it off, apply my moisturizer in bed, and roll over and go to sleep. Easy! Each mask comes with a controller that holds 30 treatments. Be sure to be set it up and be ready to go when you click the button to start the treatment, as it’s unable to pause and you will lose that treatment even if you don’t use it. The treatment will then run for the 15 minutes and that specific treatment will be over and done, and you’ll have one less treatment on your controller. You can also purchase controller refills to keep using your mask once your 30 days of treatments are up.
Well I got to try out this super innovative anti-aging mask for myself over the last month and I’ve been so excited seeing my skin come along. Like I said above, I immediately loved that you can just put on your IlluMask LED light therapy mask, and relax for the 15 minutes while it does it’s thing. It involves no extra effort on your part, other than allotting 15 minutes of not being able to use your vision. I found this perfect at night time to use while getting into bed and getting comfortable and ready for sleep. I found it super relaxing and loved that it forced me to keep my eyes closed, helping me to get sleepy for bed time.
There is absolutely no irritation, side effects or down time with using this mask, unlike getting the actual laser treatment at the Derm’s office. No puffy red, pain-causing skin! I actually didn’t feel a thing. Nothing at all while using this mask.
What I DID notice right away was a brighter, more radiant complexion. My skin also feels so much softer and smoother too to the touch, and I’ve even noticed it feels a bit plumper too! As far as the sun spots, well it’s the middle of summer and I spend time out in the sun nearly everyday. My sun spots pop up big time this time of year, so right now you can see from my photos, I’ve got a lot of that going on right now. But for having used my IlluMask over the last month (right in the middle of summer!) It also seems to have prevented new sun spots from popping up (the mask is not an SPF so be sure to wear a hat and your sunscreen when spending time in the sun). I think from looking at my before and after pictures here, it does look like some of the sun spots, particularly underneath my eyes, have faded a bit and are a bit less noticeable.
