At first glance, the treatment therapies that use red and blue and any other spectrum light to treat skin disorders and revive aging skin may seem a bit dubious. How can a light beaming on your face actually help change the visible attributes of your skin? Well, infrared Opera red and blue light therapy facial mask treatment, as more and more people are finding, are an excellent way to help treat acne and eczema and to rejuvenate and smooth the signs of aging…
The almost magical Opera Light Therapy Mask Treatment used by Hollywood stars like Jessica Alba as reported in the Daily Mail.
What causes ageing?
There is death, there is taxes and there is aging. It waits for no-one It is unstoppable as the time passes.
As the years go by, we start losing Collagen and Hyaluronic acid within the skin. The loss of these important components in the skin makes the skin susceptible to damage and wrinkling. There are all kind different factors that accelerate this process, such as bad nutrition, stress, smoking, drugs and pollution for example.
How does the Opera Mask treatment work?
The now famous Opera facial mask treatment comes into it’s own here, with it’s unique ability to deliver a combination of low-level light-therapy LED and Galvanic Current treatments.
LED (Light Emitting Diodes) is a treatment also often known as Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT). Its benefits have been known for decades.
The OPERA mask emits a precise combination of LED light wavelengths, designed to provide optimum treatment.
All the LED modes utilise infra-red light (830nm) in combination with visible light of selectable wavelength
830nm infra-Red light is invisible to the naked eye, but will penetrate deeper than other colours in the spectrum, leading to increased blood flow. The increasing of blood flow brings elevated levels of oxygen and nutrients to the face and neck whilst helping remove waste products, and has effects such as:
Combating the signs of ageing
Replenishing the dermal and epidermal cells
Speeding up the healing process
What does the red light do?
In addition to the Infra-Red 830nm wavelength light emission, the OPERA can be programmed to emit a red light of 630nm wavelength.
This is clearly visible to the naked eye and reaches deep into the skin layers. It causes a rejuvenation effect by stimulating collagen production, promoting cellular repair and increasing circulation; making the skin look more youthful.
What does the blue light do?
Alternatively, the OPERA can be programmed to emit a blue light of 415nm.
Again, this is visible to the naked eye and is proven to have anti-bacterial properties. These properties result in the destruction of bacteria such as those causing acne. The blue light also helps purify the skin, stabilise oil secreting glands and smooth inflammation.
The light therapy is medically recognized and clinically proven. It is available for skin rejuvenation against aging, acne and will not darken or tan the skin.
What about the Galvanic Current treatments?
Galvanic mode may be used either in conjunction with the LED therapy or as a stand-alone treatment.
The galvanic treatment works to improve blood flow and lymphatic draining to the face. This is a natural cleanser for the skin and helps remove impurities.
An integral aspect of the Galvanic Current treatment is the application of a unique transparent hydrogel mask to the face. This water-based mask holds a combination of natural ingredients, which the galvanic current helps the skin to absorb by using s small electric current to open the pores of the skin allowing the ingredients to pass through the skins barrier into the epidermis.
The hydrogel mask can be used as part of a client’s daily routine as even without the galvanic current the natural ingredients will be absorbed leaving the skin full nourished and fresh. Obviously the addition of the galvanic current aids this process speeding up and emphasising the results.
The galvanic current works in 2 clear ways:
1. Deep cleansing – The Opera mask is positively charged as is the hydrogel mask. The positive charge attracts and breaks up negatively charged toxins and impurities. These toxins and impurities would otherwise block glands and by removing them the face is left clean and nourished. The impurities and toxins are remove by the body’s own immune systems and by cleansing the face after treatment.
2. Nourishing – The galvanic current and the hydrogel mask are both positively charged. This means by electro-chemical process that the forces are working against each other. In essence the galvanic current is forcing away all the water and natural ingredients of the mask into the skin. This increased absorption ensures that all the ingredients pass through the skins barrier and penetrate deeper causing the effective results such as reduced wrinkles and plumping and nourishment of the skin.
This leads to a change in positive and negative charge which helps your muscles contract and expand rhythmically increasing elasticity of the skin and slowing down wrinkles formation.
In summary galvanic treatments benefits are:
Facial muscle toning decreasing wrinkles
Helps restore sun damaged skin
In conjunction with the LED treatment the results are obviously further enhanced.
