What is LED light?

LED stands for light-emitting diodes, which are clinically proven to be effective in rejuvenating all skin types. Whether you have dry, sensitive skin, uneven tone, oily skin, visible pores or a combination skin type, LED light therapy can help improve the appearance of your skin.

The non-invasive treatment involves exposing your face and décolleté to red (633nm) and near infra-red (830nm) light frequencies. These frequencies don’t contain harmful UV rays and absorb easily into the skin.

You can enjoy LED therapy in a clinic, or you can treat yourself at home using a mask.

Why is everyone going berserk over LED facemasks?

LED reduces the signs of ageing

LED fans are raving about the results: smoother, firmer and more hydrated skin and less wrinkles. LED light therapy is proven to boost collagen and elastin production, visibly reducing the signs of ageing.

As a bonus, LED therapy also promotes the production of serotonin. This naturally occurring chemical is essential for sleep, wellbeing and happiness.

It’s non-invasive

Unlike other rejuvenation procedures, LED light therapy is completely non-invasive. It’s an appealing option to those who want to hit rewind on ageing, but aren’t quite ready for more invasive treatments.

There’s no need to feel anxious about any discomfort or downtime. The anti-inflammatory effect of LED speeds up the healing process, perfect for use after a Dermapen microneedling treatment.

Enjoy some mytime

The only type of “downtime” you can expect with a LED treatment is a blissful 10 minutes out of your hectic schedule. When was the last time you treated yourself to enforced relaxation, simply sitting and letting your mind wander?

After your treatment, slip off your mask and face the world with confidence. It’s the perfect choice to fit in with your busy lifestyle, as there’s no inconvenient puffing or redness. You glow from the get-go.

Introducing myL.E.D. FACE

myL.E.D FACE harnesses the latest scientific advancements and research in light therapy to fully optimise your at-home LED treatment.

A single 10-minute session of the myL.E.D. FACE leaves your skin feeling plumper, more hydrated and refreshed. These results improve with repeated use. After four weeks of three treatments per week:

  • 95% agree skin was brighter and plumper
  • 98% agree skin felt firmer
  • 96% agree fine lines were less visible

How does it work?

myL.E.D. FACE uses two proven wavelengths of light; red (633nm) light and near infra-red (830nm) light. Clinical studies have shown these wavelengths stimulate the cells that produce collagen and elastin.

LED light therapy improves blood flow and tissue oxygenation through a process called photobiomodulation. This helps rebuild the damage caused by the ageing process. Enjoy naturally plumper skin, with diminished fine lines and wrinkles.

Why do people love myL.E.D FACE?

Twice the light

myL.E.D FACE is an industry leader in at-home light therapy treatments thanks to the dual strength of light it emits.

  1. Red light rays (633 nm) boost blood circulation and promote collagen production to reduce and prevent wrinkles, and evens out tone for a boost of radiance and glow.
  2. Near-infrared wavelength (830nm) is harder to find in at-home facemasks but optimal for skin anti-ageing treatments. Near-infrared light penetrates deeper than red light into the skin layers, making myL.E.D. FACE a superior choice.

The perfect fit for any face

Unlike those claustrophobic, hard and uncomfortable LED masks, myL.E.D. FACE is made from flexible silicone that comfortably moulds to the contours of your face. Each light sits at an optimal distance from your skin and the strategic placement of the LED lights ensures maximum light coverage.

Comfort meets convenience

The lightweight and flexible shape makes myL.E.D. FACE a more comfortable choice than rigid and more cumbersome masks on the market. It also lies flat, easily fitting into any suitcase when business or leisure calls you away.

The highest quality

The soft, comfortable silicone of the mask is medical grade. We’re so convinced of the quality and durability of myL.E.D. FACE that we offer a full 1-year warranty. Take good care of your mask by always storing it flat in its protective bag.

How was myL.E.D. FACE developed?

myL.E.D.™ is brought to you by DermapenWorld, the makers of the ORIGINAL TRUSTED AUSTRALIAN DERMAPEN. We’re the industry leaders in microneedling through our development of ground-breaking technology and we’re continuing to offer you the very latest technological advances with myL.E.D.

myL.E.D. FACE was developed by the originators of Light Therapy OmniLux®, the leading global professional model with over 34 clinical peer-reviewed papers. Our medical heritage reassures you of the efficacy and safety of our products.

Target these common skin concerns with myL.E.D.

Fine lines and wrinkles

As we age, our skin naturally starts to lose its strength and elasticity, causing unwanted fine lines and wrinkles to appear. myL.E.D FACE boosts collagen and elastin production over time, erasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dull or uneven tone and visible pores

Is your skin looking a little lacklustre lately? myL.E.D. light therapy treatments have been clinically shown to smooth and brighten skin for an even, glowing complexion. The mask also evens out and minimises pores for smooth, clear skin. Make-up glides on for a flawless finish.

Pigmentation and sun damage

There’s nothing more frustrating than age spots that defy all coverage efforts. myL.E.D. FACE has been proven to reduce pigmentation, including age spots. The power to repair extends to any damage caused by the sun. The near-infrared wavelength helps inhibit melanin production, which improves the appearance of pigmentation and sunspots.

Dehydrated skin

Say good-bye to stubborn dry and irritated skin. myL.E.D. light therapy is proven to hydrate your skin through increasing cell nutrient exchange. Your face feels refreshed after a single session. Cells are energised with increased blood flow and maximised oxygenation.

Inflamed skin

Several external or internal factors can irritate your skin, causing it to flare up. Red (633 nm) light rays encourage healing, rescuing you from uncomfortable and unsightly redness or inflammation. myL.E.D. FACE treatments help reduce post-operative inflammation after DERMAPEN microneedling treatments.

Don’t neglect your neck and décolleté

The skin around your neck and chest also sags and thins as part of the natural ageing process. To maintain a youthful appearance, it’s essential to treat the entire area, not just your face.

The myL.E.D. DÉCOLLETÉ offers a seamless rejuvenation. You can use this mask on your neck and décolleté before revolving it around to treat your shoulders and back.

It contains the same optimised intensities of red (633 nm) and near-infrared (830nm) wavelengths to naturally plump, firm, and smooth this entire area.

Can LED facemasks be used with DERMAPEN microneedling?

The healing power of red (633 nm) light makes myL.E.D. FACE the perfect follow-up treatment to accompany rejuvenation procedures, including microneedling. LED light therapy is proven to reduce inflammation and therefore, can reduce the amount of downtime you might experience after facial needling and on other areas too.

Furthermore, both treatments complement each other, giving you a double dose of collagen stimulation to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Enjoy smooth, radiant skin even faster.

Suitable for professional applications

Do you offer rejuvenation treatments to your clients in the comfort of their home? Give clients the option to use their myL.E.D. at home following procedures, or advise them to bring their myL.E.D. mask to clinic appointments for a dose of LED directly after their professional microneedling treatments.

LED light therapy has shown visible enhancements when combined post-treatment, such as DERMAPEN microneedling and other rejuvenation treatments or skincare programs.

The intelligent myL.E.D. design allows for the convenience of home use and is suitable and powerful enough for professional treatments. Many home salons, and locum treatment providers choose the convenience of myL.E.D. for their business model.

How to use myL.E.D.

Prepare your face for best results

Thoroughly cleanse your skin before use to remove any barriers to light that may have built up over the day or night, allowing the rejuvenating light to penetrate your skin. Try MICRO DERM EXFOLIANT, a versatile cleanser and exfoliant that removes dulling residue and dead skin cells.

For best results, use myL.E.D. FACE and myL.E.D. DÉCOLETTÉ combined with LUMAFUSE HYDROGEL MASKS. This intensely moisturising mask leaves you with a healthy, radiant, glowing complexion.

Making sure the battery is charged, slip on the flexible silicon mask securing the straps behind your head and turn on. The mask will automatically switch off after 10-minutes.

Do I need to cover my eyes?

Due to the intelligent design of the myL.E.D. FACE no eye protection is necessary. This area remains uncovered during treatment.

However, if you’re sensitive to light we recommend relaxing with your eyes closed for the duration of treatment.
Light products, including myL.E.D, are not recommended if you:

  • Have a genetic predisposition to light,
  • Have a genetic eye condition, or
  • Are taking medication that increases light sensitivity.

Can I move around during treatment?

myL.E.D. treatments are the perfect opportunity to enjoy some myTime, either sitting up or lying down in a comfortable position, breathing deeply. However, we understand that sometimes life is too busy to take a break. The myL.E.D. MASK is fully portable, so you can multitask.

What to do after treatment

Your skin absorbs skincare products more effectively after myL.E.D. light therapy. Applying your skincare products afterwards means you’ll get even more out of them. Dp Dermaceuticals have been dermatologically developed to target specific skincare concerns. Whether you want to treat hyperpigmentation, aged or sun-damaged skin or even out pores and skin tone, there’s a Dp Dermaceuticals skincare routine to suit you. Find the right products for your skin. You’re now all set to carry about your day with a new glow. One of the biggest perks of LED light therapy is that you immediately see results and don’t have to worry about covering up any inflammation or swelling.

How many times a week should I use myL.E.D?

To get the best results, apply your myL.E.D. FACE 3-5 days a week for a minimum of 4 weeks. It’s safe to increase the number of days beyond this, and you can even double dose if you like.

Once this initial treatment period is over, we recommend incorporating regular treatments into your usual skincare routine to keep your skin smooth, firm and hydrated.

I travel a lot; can I take it with me?

myL.E.D. is lightweight and portable, the ideal travel companion. While it moulds to your face during treatment, when you take it off, it lies perfectly flat, making it easy to pack in a suitcase.

Travel can wreak havoc with your skin’s hydration levels. Use myL.E.D. to combat any dehydration caused by travel. Simply treat yourself to a 10-minute session after you arrive for an extra boost of hydration.

As the light therapy makes your skin more receptive to skincare products, applying a hydrating moisturiser like SKIN VENEER immediately afterwards will give you an extra boost of moisture.
