Chrissy Teigen Loves This LED Acne Mask
Teigen most recently shared her mid-week spa day with the Internet. She first snapped a photo with a decadent cream lathered over her face, and then shared another image of an intense (and slightly terrifying) device being circled over her face and neck to “tighten” her skin by a professional.
In the final snap, we saw Teigen chilling out in the luxurious Deesse Pro LED mask from celebrity facialist Shani Darden, which we’re seriously coveting.
But while Teigen’s mask looks really cool, are LED masks actually beneficial to your skin? And, most importantly, are they safe to use?
Absolutely, experts say. LED (light emitting diodes) are essentially just infrared lights that are found in different wavelengths depending on the color, says New York-based dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD. These lights help to clear skin and also offer anti-aging benefits, she tells us. “LED lights don’t cause burns or skin damage, which makes them great for every skin type and color,” Dr. Nazarian adds. However, she does recommend that clients wear eye protection during a professional treatment.
