Silkemyk sin LED-maske bruker lysterapi til å behandle hud i ansiktet

Facial treatment with LED mask and light therapy

Do you want to remove pigment spots, pimples and scars on your face? Reduce sensitivity, redness, wrinkles and lines in the skin? Then you should try light therapy on the face with an LED mask.


LED masks are technology from NASA

Yes, you read that right. It was actually NASA that first researched the technology behind light therapy and LED masks. NASA developed LED light technology to research whether plants could be grown inside the space shuttles when they were out in space.

LED light stimulates cells to produce more of the chemical adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which increases healthy growth and the production of collagen. When the researchers tried infrared light on the astronauts, it turned out that their wounds healed faster. Further research showed several different positive effects of infrared light on our skin - and thus the science of LED light therapy was born.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy using LED light is a gentle form of treatment that takes advantage of the skin's natural healing properties. The therapy works by applying infrared light in different wavelengths to the skin, which makes it think it is damaged.

In this way, a completely natural repair process is set in motion in the skin cells. Collagen and elastin production in the skin is stimulated, and the result is improved skin. LED light therapy boosts tired skin by giving the skin cells more energy, which in turn leads to the cells in the skin more easily absorbing nutrients and getting rid of waste products.

What is an LED mask?

An LED mask is an exclusive beauty tool that allows you to use the technology behind LED light therapy in your own home. The mask treats your skin by tricking it into thinking it's damaged. The mask does this by emitting infrared light in different wavelengths that penetrate the skin at different levels.

There are various LED masks on the market, but Silkemyk's LED mask has a whopping 576 LED lights, compared to other masks that only have 100-200 lights. This ensures optimal treatment of the entire face.

Silkemyk's LED mask has 4 different light programs that treat your skin in different ways. The various color treatments have a number of benefits for your skin, and LED masks have therefore become a popular product to treat various skin problems.

Do LED masks work for home use?

Yes. The LED masks sold for home use give good results. Here is a meta-study about LED light therapy and its effects, which you can read if you want more information. According to the study, those who used the LED mask daily for 12 weeks reported that they experienced smoother facial wrinkles, reduction of fine lines in the skin, improved skin tone, smoother skin and a reduction in acne. The latter was experienced by 83% of those who used light therapy only after 8 weeks!

There are several clinical studies that show promising results with light therapy. The treatment is perceived as safe and gentle. Light therapy is therefore a good option for anyone who wants to remove pigment spots and acne scars in the skin, and to reduce sensitivity, redness, wrinkles and fine lines.

Are LED masks safe to use?

Yes. The LED masks sold for home use are gentler than those used at skin clinics, which makes the masks safe to use - even on your own. Silkemyk has ensured that the spectrum of light waves used is 100% free from UV light and blue light, so that the mask is completely safe to use.

The mask does not harm either skin or eyes, and is of course both CE marked, clinically tested and FDA approved! The mask comes with protection for the eyes so that the LED light will not damage the eyes during treatment.

We have chosen not to have a blue color program in our mask, as there could potentially be a risk of eye damage if someone were to stare directly into the light. This is a home product and we cannot control how people choose to use the mask, therefore we have chosen to eliminate all factors that could potentially be harmful.

LED light and UV light must not be confused

It is important not to confuse LED light with UV light. All light can change biological material, and UV light will give us signs of aging and sun damage. LED lights, on the other hand, make use of the benefits light can give to our skin by giving it energy, without the harmful side effects that UV light gives. Our masks are therefore 100% free from UV light.

Treat lines and wrinkles in the skin

Collagen is very important for the health and beauty of the skin. The red color program of the LED mask is collagen-boosting and is the basis for the most talked about benefits, namely the fight against wrinkles and signs of aging.

The LED mask on the red color program will improve the firmness of the skin, as well as fight signs of aging and wrinkles. It will also have an effective reduction in fine lines and give you healthier and smoother skin that looks younger. Try replacing anti-aging creams with the LED mask. You will not regret it!

Remove pigment spots on the face

Treating age spots, dark areas and uneven skin pigmentation will usually take several months, and sometimes up to several years to get rid of. This is especially so if the only treatment is the use of skin creams that only work on the surface of the skin.

With LED light treatment, you will activate the skin's natural repair process, and the treatment helps the skin cells to heal more effectively. The LED mask breaks down accumulations of melanin, so your skin returns to its normal pigment level. This will reduce the visibility of pigment spots in the skin. Your skin will be much healthier, you will experience an even skin tone and, not least, experience an effective treatment.

Treat inflammation and red spots in the skin

Inflammation and redness of the skin damage the health of the skin and not least its appearance. Using only skin creams that work on the surface of the skin can lead to irritation and little improvement.

Light therapy heals your skin from the inside out completely painlessly, and it will strengthen the skin's barrier. The LED mask treats the skin by increasing blood flow and circulation in damaged tissue, thereby reducing inflammation in the skin. The mask will also help skin cells and tissues to regenerate themselves and heal faster.


Light therapy with LED lights is amazing technology, and an LED mask is definitely an investment in your skin.
