At home LED masks, decoded

Led Mask – Our brand new LightMax Supercharged LED Device is finally available for general release today!

At MZ Skin HQ we’re super excited to be unveiling the new LightMax Supercharged LED Device; it is a product we’ve been developing for the past 2 years made for complete skin supremacy.

Here we answer some FAQs and explain how the new medical grade technology can benefit you.

What medical standards has the LED mask been tested too?

The FDA cleared device is made to medical device directives to deliver the same clinically proven wavelengths as professional clinic machines.

It uses clinically proven technology and proven wavelengths of light.

It also features flexible patent technology in the silicon mask.

Soft, comfortable silicone that contours to your face. Completely portable – take MZ Skin LightMAX Supercharged LED Mask anywhere.

Designed and built to International medical standards using medical grade components.

Please explain the medical regulations behind this LED device

A device, such as this, is always FDA cleared because medical devices can only be cleared. Drugs, on the other hand are FDA approved.

How does this differ to every other LED Mask on the market?

There are many other devices on the market but in comparison to Omnilux, it is 18 joules which is equivalent to the cumulative dose that Omnilux delivers. If you use the LightMax Supercharged LED Device 3 times per week, for ten minutes, it is the same as using Omnilux twice a week for twenty minutes. The other main difference is how close to the face the MZ Skin device can sit, which also provides a great benefit as the light energy has less far to travel to reach the skin cells.

Please could you share what clinical data supports the LED mask?

The MZ Skin LightMAX Supercharged LED Mask uses scientifically proven wavelengths of light; 633nm red light, 830nm of near infra-red light and 415nm of blue light. These wavelengths have been shown in studies to stimulate collagen and elastin production and help to improve blood flow and tissue oxygenation through a process called photo biomodulation.

Tested on over 100 patients in Independent clinical studies, peer reviewed published papers, with supported claims that are proven statistically to be significant. Results from these studies are:

Anti-ageing mode is clinically proven to:

+ Reduce wrinkle depth by 36% in 4 weeks

+ Increase collagen fibres in 2 weeks, improving fine lines

In 12 weeks:

98% of subjects reported firmer skin

96% of subject reported reduced fine lines

95% of subjects reported brighter and plumper skin from increased blood flow

91% of subjects reported improved skin tone

82% of subjects reported smoother skin

73% of subjects reported softer skin

Acne mode is clinically proven to:

+ Improve inflammatory acne lesions by 77.93% in 8 weeks

In 12 weeks:

81% of subjects reported reduced acne lesions

What does it mean about when you say ‘output’ of the LED device?

We use red, near infra-red and blue light at the following outputs, and number of diodes:

Anti-Ageing Mode TECHNICAL SPECS – Wavelengths, diodes, intensity

Intended use: full facial wrinkles

RED: 633 nm, 42 diodes

IR: 830 nm, 42 diodes

Total number of anti-aging diodes: 84

Power: 30 mW/cm2

Energy: 18 Joules/cm2

Acne Mode TECHNICAL SPECS – Wavelengths, diodes, intensity

Intended use: active acne

RED: 633nm, 28 diodes

BLUE: 415nm, 28 diodes

Total number of acne diodes: 56

Power: 30 mW/cm2

Energy: 18 Joules/cm2

On other LED masks, it states it is medically cleared so how is this one the only one that is cleared to these standards on the market?

Our Light Therapy Golden Facial Treatment Device was FDA registered.

What are the light modes for each setting and what energy outputs of light do they emit?

There are 2 treatment modes: ANTI-AGEING MODE: RED (633nm) with INFRARED (830nm) and ACNE MODE: RED & BLUE (415nm). These are all scientifically proven wavelengths of light which target the entire complexion to effectively reduce fine lines, wrinkles and reduce acne.

Red light stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to refine and strengthen the skin. Boosts luminosity through improved circulation, calms redness, evens the skin tone and plumps the complexion. Red light also reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation to help even skin tone and brighten the complexion.

Near Infrared Light helps deliver a powerful reparative cell response to soothe damaged or sensitive skin, reduce sensitivity and calm inflammation. In conjunction with red 633 nm, near-infrared light strengthens the barrier, supports younger-looking skin and reduces the chemical response to stress.

Blue light has powerful antibacterial properties to help decongest and clarify the skin, balancing troubled complexions caused by P. acnes microbes. Both blue and red light work against P. Acnes helping to eradicate the problem bacteria from deep in the sebaceous glands.

Besides the silicon and the medical grade of the LED device what makes this different from your first mask?

The MZ Skin LightMAX Supercharged LED Mask 2.0 is a clinically proven medical device. Our new mask has clinical trials and results to show improvement to inflammatory acne lesions, wrinkle depth, redness and hyperpigmentation, collagen fibres, firmness, even skin tone and texture.

The device consists of a flexible silicone mask that contains light emitting diodes that emit light in the Blue, Red and Near infra-red region of the light spectrum.

When using the portable device, on either of the two light settings, the session will automatically be timed to switch off at 10 minutes.

What is the exact science behind the LED mask and the results of the skin?

Light therapy has been used for over 30 years to heal the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin. LED treatments were originally developed for astronauts to help with tissue healing and repair. In the clinical setting, LED treatment is offered as an acne, wrinkle reducing and cellular repair treatment.

On both light modes, the light re-charges the cells’ ‘energy’ battery and the skin is then able to use the energy as fuel to repair and rejuvenate damaged cells; enhancing and boosting the skin’s natural daily repair process.

Light therapy also helps skin cells absorb topical skincare products more effectively.

Why is this LED mask proven to be more effective?

MZ Skin LightMAX Supercharged LED Mask has been designed to deliver light directly to the skin, ensuring that the maximum amount of light hits its cellular targets and is not wasted.

Why is this LED mask using red and blue combined, for acne?

Combining red and blue light therapy treats acne more time efficiently than blue light alone. Blue light destroys the acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin’s surface, and the red light reduces inflammation and accelerates healing.
