Please keep in mind all info shared in this blog is for information purposes only. I take NO responsibility for any injury or harm caused by purchasing and using any of the LED Light devices listed within the content of this blog. I also take No responsibility for problems encountered with purchasing these devices, such as delivery, warranty issues or any other kinds of problems experienced when purchasing or issues suffered whilst using the devices I mention in this blog. 

I am the owner and sole practitioner of Jessicat’s Medi-Spa. Over the last eight years, I have worked to target the problem of thinning skin which causes fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, pigmentation issues and sagging skin. In order to do this to the highest level of my ability, I have found it necessary to help clients set up at-home devices like LED Light, Microcurrent and Microneedling technology at home and sell, or direct clients to purchase minimal topical skin care products.

As with everything in life I find in order to solve a problem you need to learn what the right questions are. If you don’t then you may consistently get the wrong answers, and, or continue repeating the same mistakes.

The WRONG QUESTION – how can I get rid of, or hide the visual signs of ageing?
The RIGHT QUESTION – why is my appearance changing and what can I do to target the underlying issues that are causing this change?
It is important for you to remember it takes MANY years for the skin to thin and this problem goes noticed until things hit a tipping point which results in fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, pigmentation issues and sagging skin. So, it makes sense that it takes time and the correct treatments to target the underlying issues that are causing the skin to thin.

These pictures are examples of what quick-fix treatments such as injectable therapies can result in.

-When we target the underlying issues that cause the natural aging process we are able to decrease our need for injectable therapies and even surgical procedures as we mature πŸ˜€
Please consider, that it takes MANY years for the skin to thin to the point where you start to notice visually. Think of a balloon, you are able to remove quite a bit of air if it is done very slowly and only a tiny bit at a time. Now think of your skin, after the age of approximately 35 onwards, (this is different for everyone due to genetics, lifestyle and many other factors) our skin begins to thin, bit by bit due to depleating levels of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Think machines over creams!

When it comes to your at-home skincare routine consider that the correct Red LED Light device, when used properly can result in a 47% rise in ATP, and a quality Microcurrent device is able to raise levels by 500% in just 3 minutes of use.

ATP is referred to by biologists as the The Energy Of Life”, due to it being the energy currency that all cells within your body use to get what they need to do done.
Think of when you are feeling rested and energised. You get a lot more done in your day than when you feel tired, sluggish and not at your full physiological and mental best.
It is the same for our skin cells. When they are producing high levels of ATP, then they have more fuel to perform optimally, and create high levels of collagen and elastin production.

Read our blog to learn about ATP πŸ˜€

-Muscles can also deplete in size and strength as we mature, resulting in hollows forming in the facial features and feeding into the propblem of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Microcurrent muscle treatments help to target this problem and are used by stars like Jenifer Lopez to attain and maintain and naturally youthful look overall.

For more info on the natural ageing process read our blog; Looking Timelessly Youthful Long Term – What Does It Take?

One of the best things we can do to decrease the problem of thining skin is to perform regular treatments at home that raise ATP production substantialy. This means performing Red LED Light and Microcurrent therapy.

In 1993, Quantum Devices (Barneveld, WI) developed a light-emitting diode (LED) for NASA to use in their plant growth experiments.  It was discovered whilst doing these experiments that Red LED Light has a powerful effect of healing human tissue, which in turn has an incredible beautifying effect on the skin.
Whilst Red LED Light therapy raises ATP levels by only around 47%, which is not a lot when compared to Microcurrent therapy its effect on healing and strengthening human tissue is astounding, and there is much evidence to support Red LED Light therapy helping to improve things like bone density and decrease pain in the body caused by inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
-Watch this video of a client in her 60’s talking about using at home Red LED Light to decrease inflammation and pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis.
-Watch this video of a 70-year-old client talking about how Red LED Light therapy helping her to heal a broken wrist much faster than people she met with the same kind of injury who were a quarter of her age when having movement therapy, and decrease scar tissue dramatically in just six weeks.

-Red LED Light needs to be between 630nm and 660nm to affect human tissue optionally and be a solid light, (and in my opinion not flash) in order to gain optimal results.

The more lights the better, so look for info about how many lights are included on a device, as well as if they are present above the top lip, directly above and around the eyes, on the nose areas and are able to affect the skin of the full face, neck and chest areas simultaneously. 

$36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask

-Some of the most powerful at-home LED Light devices on the market are the $590 Omnilux Contour FACE and $649 DR Dennis Gross Specralite Faceware Pro. It is important to understand that whilst these devices have more lights and are more powerful than masks such as the $149 Zobelle Glow or $36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask, these lower strength and more cost-effective masks can be highly beneficial and gain you amazing results if used regularly and properly.
-An example of this is the results I noticed of one of my clients after using the $36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask. She suffers from Melasma from time to time due to hormonal changes and on occasion sun exposure. After nagging her about setting up at home with a device I recomend my clients use which involves laying down for 15-20 minute under and having no luck with her doing as I suggested I sent her home with the $890 CurrentBody Skin LED Light face and neck masks as well as the $36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask to trial. I guilted my client into using these devices regularly due my providing them to her for a month and also checking up on her with regular texts, prompting her further into action πŸ˜‰.
-I was surprised when she reported that she preferd the $36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask due to finding it to be the most comfortable out of the two masks I had given her to trial as I thought she would have prefered the CurrentBody devices, (I love treating the full face and neck in all my own treatments). I was TOTALY blown away when seeing her for her next treatment. Her skin looked plump, and glowing with health, sporting the LED Light glow I have come to love as well as appearing clear of all signs of hormonal pigmenation.
-Whist I was surprised at just how effective the $36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask was, I have found over my eight years of providing treatments to clients that epidermal Melamsa can most often be treated with Green LED Light, light microneedling and if needed some vitamin B based skin care products such as the Brightening serum from the Bio-Theraputic brand. Seeing how clear and amaizing my clients skin looked after alternating days of using Green (for Melamsa) and Red LED Light therapy for 20 minutes using the $36 LED Photon Light Face Skin Therapy Mask proved to me that this cheap mask can create very powerful results if used properly.
Regular treatments are the key to getting the best results! This is why at-home LED Light therapy can be so impactful. It is great that beauty practitioners like me include the use of LED Light therapy within their treatment processes, but I feel the real magic of LED Light therapy happens when it is performed religiously at home.

-There are a lot of devices on the market. The info shared in this blog is meant to help you navigate your way through the HUGE amount of information shared on the internet, and purchase a LED Light device that will work best for not only your beauty needs but also your budget. Cheaper devices may break down more quickly than expensive ones, provide slower and requier you to use them more frequently and for longer treatment sessions, but they may also allow you to start using Red (for anti-ageing) LED Light therapy sooner, regularly, and be more easily replaced when they break down.
-Please keep in mind, more often than not devices are NOT made to last, so if you purchase a more expensive device try and choose one from a company that will provide good after purchase support.
-Think of the key colours that you need as being Red, for anti-ageing and healing, Green for inflammation and some pigmentation issues, and Blue to help decrease bacterial infections. Whilst it is Red LED Light therapy that has the backing of in-depth studies done by NASA, I have personally seen the powerful effects of Green and Blue LED Light therapy do wonders for helping with issues such as acne and hormonal pigmentation.
-There can be a lot of fluff and sparkle that you have to work through to get the info you need, and the device you want. An example of this is Purple LED Light. Purple is Green and Blue LED Light combined. If you need Green LED Light therapy to help decrease hormonal pigmentation like Melasma, or Blue LED Light to help reduce a bacterial infection that is causing or worsening acne breakouts you need to have treatments that deliver solid LED Light to the skin at the correct strength. Using combination colours such as Purple is in my opinion results in low-strength technology that is gimmicky and a waste of time.

-Applying Green Tea to the skin 20 minutes before enjoying Red LED Light therapy will help make improve the effects of Red LED Light therapy by 80%, with no need for expensive serums or fancy transparent masks or other unnecessary topical products.

The device shown on the left in the picture above is called the Quasar MD. It was my second at home LED Light device,d purchase many years ago before I began working in the world of beauty. I loved this device and used it religiously, however, I now opt for devcies that are able to treat the full face, neck and chest areas within a single treatment without needing the use of your hands in order combine my beauty time with meditation time and enjoy more effective treatments.

This is a DIY LED Light set-up that I use πŸ˜€

I purchased this LED Light plate for between $29 and 49 from CATCH.COM, however, they are no longer available from this supplier.

I now find replacement devices when I need them on websites like ebay.

This is the video that led to me purchasing and using a Red LED Light device that was created for growing plants indoors.

This is where I get my Microphone stands from to use to hang my LED Light plates.

I use the Microphone stand due to it having the ability to go up, down and swivel around.

I secure the plate to the Microphone stand with small cable ties so the hook that attaches to the Microphone stand arm does not move and enjoy laying on a bed, or couch with the plate a few inches from my face, neck and chest, or hands, or any other body area I am treating. I use an elastic band to secure the metal hook from the LED Light plate to the Microphone stand arm.

  As mentioned above, I take no responsibility for any problem or injury that may be experienced or suffered due to using the devices that I share info about within this blog. Above I am sharing info about my using a Red LED Light plate designed for growing plants inside for my own beauty needs. I am NOT recommending anyone purchase one for their own beauty needs. I am simply sharing information about what I do.  

Let’s look at what to avoid when purchasing a LED Light device!

 Dr Pen is a Perth-based company that provides at-home beauty equipment to the general public.
In 2021 I started to recommend clients purchase the Femvy LED Light masks sold by this supplier due to the low price of the devices, fast delivery and Dr Pen being a local supplier which is VERY rare in Perth and knowing my clients could physically go into Dr Pens premises and return goods, or seek to advise from an actual person if problems arose from using their equipment. I usually do not recommend devices I have not personaly used myself. I made an exception about recomending the Femvy mask supplied by Dr Pen due to them being a Perth-based company and knowing if there were any issues my BeautyCats could act on the 30-day return policy.
It should be noted that the Femvy LED Light mask is no longer being sold by Dr Pen and all clients who are mentioned in this blog were able to return their LED Light masks to the Dr Pen company and received a full refund and great customer care and service. 
The reason I have included this info in this blog even though the local supplier Dr Pen is no longer selling the device is due to seeing a client suffer burn-like marks on her skin after repeatedly using the Femvy LED Light mask and heard similar stories from other clients about purchasing masks like this on the internet. Also, it took a good few months, possibly a year or more for the Dr Pen company to stop selling the device even though I contacted them directly and told them about the issues I discribe below which tells me its important for us all to be educated in what to look for in a device and can not soly rely on the company selling the device to provide safe devices.

My client described a mild electrical shock-like sensation and then noticed the marks that are shown in the photos shared.

 
 
Some of these marks blistered, and we were able to heal the wounds suffered by using SudoCream (great stuff for healing skin), Bepanthen and Red LED Light therapy, resulting in no long term scarring being suffered πŸ˜€

 
Around 4 clients purchased the Femvy LED Light mask on my recommendation and found it to be VERY uncomfortable, complaining that the device was VERY tight on their faces (especially around the eye and temple areas) and felt very heavy to wear. Three clients experienced electric-shock-like sensations when using the device and one client suffered the injuries that you can see in the pictures shared above. 

Unfortunatly this is not the first time I have seen this kind of an injury result from using an at home Hard-Faced LED Light mask that also provides Microcurrent and or Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) therapies.

A few years agon one of my clients brought in her LED Light mask to sell second-hand to another client who might like to purchase the device cheaply. She was selling the mask due to updating her at-home technology and had used the mask successfully without suffering any kind of injury for over a year.
The client who purchased the mask had Asian skin, and when she used the Microcurrent Feature on the mask, she experienced shock-like discomfort and was left with burn-like marks on her skin.
When I told the owner of the mask about the injuries she said she had turned on the Microcurrent Feature briefly, but due to being happy with a separate quick and easy to use Microcurrent device I had helped her to purchase she had not gone on to use it regularly, and used the LED Light maks ongoing without turning on the Microcurrent feature at all.
On Dr Pen’s website the extra features are called a Microcurrent/EMS Feature for tightening/firming of the skin, and the staff memeber I talked to at Dr Pen said this feature could be turned off, and that this was written in the info on the website purchase page.
When I spoke to one of my other clients who was returning the mask due to it being uncomfortable (this client did not suffer any physical injuries from using the mask) she told me she had tried this feature, however, due to the electrical shock-like sensation she experienced, she turned it off. She had even removed the metal bulb-like attachments within the inside face of the mask due to wanting to lighten the feel of the mask against her face, and found that the uncomfortable electrical shock-like sensation still occurred within the areas that the metal bulb-like attachments were located. To stop this she had to hold the plastic face of the mask away from her skin whilst using it.
She went on to tell me she loved the way the Red and Green LED Light was making her skin look, which is a testament to the LED Light therapy the mask is delivering into the skin being of high quality πŸ˜€

As a beauty professional who uses Microcurrent therapy in her in-clinic treatments, I feel there is something very wrong with Microcurrent/EMS therapy that causes burns in the skin.

-I use high-strength Microcurrent therapy in the treatment processes I provide my clients, and it NEVER leaves burns on the skin.
-I also help my clients to set up home the Microcurrent and EMS devices which once again, NEVER leave burns on the skin.

Something to be considered…..

The at-home Microcurrent devices my clients and I use for daily Microcurrent therapy that works to raise Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) levels in the skin by up to 500 % in as little as 3-6 minutes, need the skin to be very damp for the Microcurrent to run through the skin successfully to raise ATP levels substantially.

If the skin is not wet then the Microcurrent can not run through the skin properly and affect it on a cellular level, and with some devices on the market, you can feel an electric shock-like sensation if the skin is not damp enough.
This also happens with my in-clinic Bio-Ultimate Microcurrent treatments. If I do not apply enough Hydrate gel to the skin (made up of Hyaluronic acid, and other ingredients like Alovera gel) then my clients can experience an electric shock-like sensation.
With the EMS devices, I help my clients to purchase for at-home muscle lifting, toning, and sculpting treatments, you do not experience any electrical shock if the pads are not wet, in fact, you feel nothing at all unless the pads are wet, in short, the device does not work unless the pads are very wet.

 I think perhaps some manufacturers of at-home LED Light equipment are including the use of Microcurrent and EMS technologies within their LED Light masks, and do not fully understand the technology, or they are not providing proper information on how to use the devices to people who purchase them (in the form of instruction manuals).  

 I would be VERY wary of any LED Light Mask that has Microcurrent and or EMS capability due to the injuries I have now personally seen two clients get from using such devices.

My clients and I love purchasing and using LED Light masks and hand free device from Dr Pen.

Below is a screen shot taken on 05-07-22 from the company website. From time to time Dr Pen swaps out the devices they sell. At this time I can say my clients have enjoyed using the Zobella Grow Light Therapy Mask, and the Femvy LED Light Therapy Pod πŸ˜€.

I teach my clients that T.V time is beauty time and to consider when ever they sit back to relaxe and enjoy T.V to consider if they could also be using this time to perform beauty treatments!

LED Light mask from RosaLight 

Soon after purchasing this device in January 2021, I sold it to a client, and can report this client is using the device every 2-3 days ongoing without complaint 😘

The RosaLight company focuses on the skin condition of Rosacea, which I feel is a bit gimmicky due to Red and Blue LED Light therapy being delivered by any quality LED Light mask or hands-free device being effective in helping to treat the condition of Rosacea.
Here is a little info about Rosacea:
Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea, characterized by persistent redness on the face. Small blood vessels beneath the skin surface may become enlarged and visible; these symptoms often flare up and then disappear. Without treatment, the redness can get more persistent, cover more skin, and even become permanent.
Glandular rosacea, presents as thickened and red skin, most typically seen on the skin of the nose, chin, and sometimes the cheek areas of the face.
Papulopustular, (once known as Acne Rosacea), presents with bumps and pimple-like pustules.
-Neurogenic rosacea, which is a newly emerging type of Rosacea which is a condition that affects the neurological pathways and may be related to sensations of burning or stinging that accompanies redness in the skin. Studies of potential inflammatory pathways have found a growing number of links between rosacea and various aspects of the nervous system.
Whilst antibiotics and other treatments can help treat the different types of Rosacea that are caused by Demodex mites, and bacterial infections such as Cathelicidin LED Light therapy can also be very helpful with the treatment of Rosacea.
Read this article on treating Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea with Blue and Red LED Light therapy.
I would recommend x10-15 minutes of Blue LED Light, used to help kill bacteria that can cause or worsen Rosacea, followed by 20 minutes of Red LED Light therapy, used to repair, rebuild and improve the overall cellular health of the skin. Keeping the skin thick and strong and functioning optimally by triggering rich new and ongoing collagen, elastin, and blood vessel growth with regular at-home LED Light treatments can be extremely beneficial for Rosacea-prone skin.
Pros and Cons of purchasing and using this device:
-The RosaLight hard-LED Light mask is easy to use and quite comfortable. The device is sold for around $224.95 USD, which is around $299.23 Australian. This price is on the higher side when looking at other LED Light masks available on the market, but comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee and a five-year warranty, which is a HUGE bonus due to at-home beauty equipment usually only coming with a one year warranty.
I contacted the company and requested a 10% discount code for my clients, but to date, the company has not provided one.
-The device also does NOT come with Microcurrent or Electrical Muscle Stimulation attachments, which is a good thing due to these attachments making the overall weight of a LED Light mask heavier, and more uncomfortable as well as potentially causing injury if used. 
-Unfortunately, the RosaLight device does not come with a neck attachment, so if you are wanting to have comprehensive treatments that treat the neck and chest areas you will need to place the mask over these areas and perform separate 20-minute treatments, done 2-3 times a week, or every day if you have the time πŸ˜€
There are many other Hard or Soft-LED Light masks that do come with neck attachments, such as the devices purchased from  Full Body Australia, or CurrentBody.
and are now selling the Maskuah LED Light mask for $189, the Hello Silky’s LED Light Therapy Mask Facial and Neck for $139, and the Hello Silky’s 3 Colour LED mask for $109. These devices look like they may do the trick, providing quality treatments and working to to gain good results if they stand the test of time (providing at least a years worth of use before breaking down), and provide 630 & 660nm of red led light therapy.
I notice there is no info on the Catch website about the strength of the LED Light provided by the devices they sell.
I would advise looking up the official websites of the manufacturers of the different devices sold by Catch.com.au to get more info before purchasing a device, such as going to https://www.maskuah.com/products/led-light-mask, as well as get return and warranty info.
This is typical of websites like e-Bay and Catch.com.au. They provide us with access to low-price beauty technology, however, sometimes these devices break down quickly due to being of poor quality, and detailed info about the devices can be difficult to find.

Soft-LED Light devices, like the CurrentBody mask

The trouble with Soft-LED Light masks is that they may not last as long as Hard-LED Light masks. With the added comfort and ease of use that allows you to move around easily and do other tasks whilst using the mask comes a greater amount of wear and tear.

If you are ok with this, then you have quite a few devices to choose from including CurrentBody, Adura (who I do NOT recomend purchasing devices from) and Omnilux devices.

I used to recommend my clients purchase the $499 Adura LED Light mask due to their being lightweight, and being able to be worn whilst doing other tasks around the house because they are cordless. After countless complaints about the devices breaking and finding that the supplier was less than helpful with repairs and warranty issues I no longer recommend this device, feeling it is overpriced and NOT well made.

Purchasing both the LED Light face mask and neck and chest attachments together for around $829 is a better way of getting both devices in the most cost-effective way possible.

The annoying thing is that the anti-ageing CurrentBody and Omnilux devices only have Red LED Light capability.

Red LED Light therapy is amazing at working to improve healing in human tissue, as well as improve the integrity and health of the skin by raising Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), and triggering a massive boost of collagen and elastin production, but for the price of the devices, I feel they should also have the ability to deliver Blue and Green LED Light therapy.
Blue LED Light is helpful when working to decrease bacterial infection and Green LED Light can be amazing at helping to resolve hormonal pigmentation and decrease inflammation.

I have sent an email to CurrentBody asking for a code to give my clients to gain a 10% discount, but as yet I have not heard back from the company. I will keep trying to contact the company from time to time and hope to update this blog soon and add a code to gain you a discount when purchasing from the companies website.

Pros and Cons of purchasing and using this device:
The device comes with a 2-year warranty.
The facial, neck and chest LED Light devices are comfortable and can be worn whilst doing other tasks, which is great because using the device regularly is imperative to getting great results, and keeping collagen and elastin levels high on an ongoing basis. The easier a device is to use, the more you will be inclined to use it πŸ˜€
Whilst the Soft-LED Light devices are more comfortable than Hard-LED Light devices in my experiance they may break down far more quickly over time due to normal wear and tear, needing repairs or replacement within the warranty time period. This leaves the purchaser at the whim of the supplier, so I would recommend looking for reviews from people who have purchased the devices you are looking to purchase and talk about getting great customer care when issues arise.

Tips to save money, and get the very most out of your at home Red LED Light treatments πŸ˜€

Don’t purchase any kind of clear Hyluronic acid mask, (or any other kind of mask) from the LED Light device supplier to enhance treatments. These kinds of things are gimmicks and a way for the supplier to make ongoing money from you. If you want increased Hydration in your skin then simply use a cheap and effective Hyluronic acid-rich serum, (which must be water-based) and apply that to the skin and let it dry before performing LED Light therapy. You can apply Hyluronic acid serum over the top of skin that Green Tea has soaked into for 20 minutes in order to make your Red LED LIght treatments up to 80% more effective. 
Read The Green Tea Study to understand the emense power of Green Tea and Red LED Light threapy. 
Whilst I like to keep things cheap and lean as far as the topical skincare products I advise my clients to purchase I have to mention Chromatic Serum. When you apply Green Tea to the skin you need to wait 20 minutes for the tea to soak into the skin and if possible continue applying the Green Tea to the skin over that 20-minute period in order for the Green Tea to be effective in enhancing the effects of Red LED Light therapy. You will read about this in The Green Tea Study. Chromatic Serum can be applied and then you can perform a Red LED Light treatment straight away, and enjoy the amazing effects of the Chromatic Serum dramatically increasing the effects of the Red LED Light therapy. One of the key ingredients of Chromatic serum is Green Tea, and I would recommend you apply the Chromatic serum over slightly damp skin in order to use the product minimally due to its cost.
Please note I use Chromatic serum myself and tell clients about it, but recommend they use Green Tea, making a strong cup using x2 tea bags, (Coles brand Green Tea will do the trick) and put the Green Tea into a small misting or spray bottle so it is easy to continuously spray the mix over the skin over 20 minutes leading up to a Red LED Light treatment. Some clients have experienced eye irritation due to using a spray or misting bottle, so be careful around the eye area. I do this due to the cost of the Chromatic serum and Green Tea being super cheap. I do NOT know of any other serums claiming to improve the benefits of LED Light therapy and came across Chromatic serum only because I use the manufacturer’s clinic-grade LED Light device.
I hope this info helps you to go on and purchase the best at-home LED Light device for your individual needs, Jessicat Xxx
