See the light! Take a glance at Instagram and you can see that at-home LED light masks are hot (pun intended!). Case in point: January Jones‘ selfie featuring the Deese Mask, a red-light antiaging wonder she was turned on to by her facialist Shani Darden. Well, guess what? You don’t have to be rich or famous to rock a DIY LED treatment! Olivia Palermo‘s favorite dermatologist, Dr. Dennis Gross, just launched an LED light eye mask that targets crow’s-feet.
Dr. Gross’ product line is already a cult fave of celebs — his Alpha Beta Daily Peel pads are loved by Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and even January Jones herself. Now he’s adding his first device — SpectraLite — to the mix. The high-tech headpiece contains 72 LEDs that penetrate deeply, stimulating collagen production to boost skin firmness and fill in fine lines around eyes and those dreaded “elevens” between them.
If you’re asking the question our beauty director Gwen Flamberg’s sister asked when Gwen road tested the mask and Instagrammed a pic — is it safe? — rest assured, the mask is FDA cleared. Here’s a fun fact we learned: When using red LED light, no goggles are necessary, but if you’re using blue light (often used to treat acne), protective eyewear must be worn.
And here’s the best news: This treatment is express! Using the mask for just three minutes a day on clean, dry skin yields results — in a 10-week daily-use clinical study, 97 percent of subjects showed visible improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and skin tone. The rechargeable mask costs $159 at Sephora. The future is looking bright!
